Crown prince sought to lure Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia and detain him, U.S. intercepts show

Source: The Washington Post



By Shane Harris October 10 at 8:16 PM

The crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, ordered an operation to lure Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia from his home in Virginia and then detain him, according to U.S. intelligence intercepts of Saudi officials discussing the plan.

The intelligence, described by U.S. officials familiar with it, is another piece of evidence implicating the Saudi regime in Khashoggi’s disappearance last week after he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul. Turkish officials say that a Saudi security team lay in wait for the journalist and killed him.

Khashoggi was a prominent critic of the Saudi government and Mohammed in particular. Several of Khashoggi’s friends said that over the past four months, senior Saudi officials close to the crown prince had called Khashoggi to offer him protection, and even a high-level job working for the government, if he returned to his home country.

Khashoggi, however, was skeptical of the offers. He told one friend that the Saudi government would never make good on its promises not to harm him.

3. Senators from both parties are giving the

admin 120 days to complete an investigation. This IS the Magnitsky Act. If the Saudis did this we can implement sanctions. However, Jared is best pals with the murderous Prince so we'll see how that goes.

4. Donald Trump and a world of disorder

~
The forced disappearance of the Interpol chief, Meng Hongwei, who it turns out is being held by the Chinese authorities.

Mounting evidence underscoring the Kremlin's involvement in the chemical poisonings in Salisbury.

The seemingly gruesome case of Jamal Khashoggi, the missing journalist who Turkish authorities suspect was killed and dismembered by a Saudi hit squad inside the kingdom's Istanbul consulate.

All point to a world of disorder: of a slide towards unruliness; of a new era of strongman authoritarianism and a waning of international law.

7. The world no longer looks at us a moral leader.

The fucking moron has destroyed this country in record time. They are never going to be able to undo the damage he has done. It's a good thing for him that I am not in charge of deciding on a just punishment for him.

9. It's a monstrous act against humanity, carried out almost publicly.

Are there any limits, ever again, to the treachery these murdering scums will employ?
