Saudi Official: Chokehold Killed Writer, Body Carried Out in Rug

RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA —
As Saudi Arabia faced intensifying international skepticism over its story about the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a senior government official laid out a new version of the death inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul that in key respects contradicts previous explanations.

The latest account, provided by a Saudi official who requested anonymity, includes details on how the team of 15 Saudi nationals sent to confront Khashoggi on Oct. 2 had threatened him with being drugged and kidnapped and then killed him in a chokehold when he resisted. A member of the team then dressed in Khashoggi’s clothes to make it appear as if he had left the consulate.

After denying any involvement in the disappearance of Khashoggi, 59, for two weeks, Saudi Arabia on Saturday morning said he had died in a fistfight at the consulate. An hour later, another Saudi official attributed the death to a chokehold, which the senior official reiterated.

Turkish officials suspect the body of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and critic of powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was dismembered, but the Saudi official said it was rolled up in a rug and given to a “local cooperator” for disposal. Asked about allegations that Khashoggi had been tortured and beheaded, he said preliminary results of the investigation did not suggest that.

6. Or maybe humus.

This is like listening to a five year old come up with excuses why he broke the living room lamp. "The dog did it." "It fell on its own." "We had an earthquake." "Daddy bumped into it."

And with each more improbable excuse they make, Donnie Two Shoes says, "Yup, that sounds logical to me."

How are they explaining the coroner with the bone saw being present?

My bet is that everyone who was involved in the affair is going to be executed.

2. Next up: Khashoggi tripped and hit his head on the window sill.

He fell to the floor - landing on a rug - with blood flowing everywhere. They wrapped his body in the now ruined rug and gave it to the nice man looking to buy a rug for cheap.

Everyone flew back home.

The end.

And if that story isn't good enough...

Give us a few days and we'll tell you another one.

12. I'm sure he was distraught over his betrayal of his homeland

and killed himself.

OR he really didn't want to marry his girlfriend so he asked them to fake his murder so he could disappear. Swapped clothes with one of the "security team" and went silently into that good night.



If they really want to rub our faces in poop why not just say that once he was taken into custody he "lost his head" and demanded to be executed.

It's becoming a perverse version of that old game show, "To Tell The Truth".

8. Turkey could clear all of this up and provide the evidence

they claim to have. My thoughts are that Turkey is negotiating with SA, they are asking for blood money. When the Turkish story agrees with the Saudi story then we know that Turkey got what it is asking for.

Anyone know why they brought along the saw?

10. Let me get this straight... They sent a team of 15 people to deal with one journalist.

Who wrote some critical articles in a foreign newspaper.

Granted, it was Tangerine Idi Amin's least favorite newspaper, but, never-the-less.

One guy who was armed with a keyboard against a team of 15 men armed with who knows what.

And, by surprise. Pretty cowardly.

15. MBS disliked Khashoggi and has his head ripped off his shoulders...

... so he could not write any more bad articles about the prince.

End of story.

19. Following the RW/Nazi playbook: throw a bunch of shit out there to muddy the waters.

The goal is to be able to say “guess we’ll never know.” That allows everyone to believe what they want, with no accountability anywhere or for anyone.

The end game is muddying the waters.

21. SA has lost all creditability by now. Admit to the crime and arrest ALL of those who are ...

part of the conspiracy including the prince or those in the higher ranks of the SA government that sanctioned this crime to begin w/. No other choice remains. And rump needs to just shut up, no one is listening to him and if I were him, where was Jared K when all of this happened? He was just there in SA prior to all of this happened, so if anything, I think he either revealed something to MBS directly or indirectly that MBS took as approval and sanctioned the crime then. I know that this is out of the air on my part, but it is funny that Jared K. was just there...

24. so all we need to do is get in touch with the "local cooperator", right?

then we can find out what happened to the body.

yeah, uh huh. in what fucking universe is this considered okay: "threatened him with being drugged and kidnapped and then killed him in a chokehold when he resisted"

cue another 14 coincidental fatal car accidents.

It doesn’t help that they have an entire propaganda arm in the US dedicated to parroting their latest lies.
