The Saudis are literally going to "blame the black guy" for this.

 

Might I suggest to Major-General Ahmed al-Assiri that I hear Tehran is quite lovely this time of year.

Will no one rid me of this turbulent reporter?

Not as cancerous as attacking SHS for being fat and ugly.

Saudi Arabia finally said he's dead, but that he died in a fist fight gone bad and is holding 18 people, like who would be dumb enough to believe this shit.

I always love it when these scandals take a week to come out with a "She's from Canada, you wouldn't know her" level excuses.

One of the outcomes of this entire Khashoggi affair is just how thoroughly it appears that Turkish intelligence services had bugged Saudi diplomatic facilities if the amount of audio evidence the Turks claim to have actually exists.  I'd imagine that any embassy/consulate that does not routinely conduct bug sweeps must have been pretty damned busy over the last two weeks to figure out if they have a similar problem as well.

Meanwhile at the White House they're trying to figure out whether there was any room left over once the Russian listening devices were installed.

So why does turkey care so much? I mean, they're not above jailing journalists, so is it a regional balance of power type thing?

That's exactly what it is.

Am I just making shit up, or isn't there historically competition between Turkey and Arabia to be in the driver's seat of the Sunni world?

I'll have to review my Islamic history, but I'm pretty sure that the Arab/Turk rivalry for the pole position of Sunni Islam was very much an issue as the Ottoman Empire rose.

 

The fact of the matter is that the House of Saud's claim to stewardship of the holy cities of Mecca and Medina is largely based on the family's wars of unification rather than any religious authority.

Well there is the part where they used a diplomatic compound within their borders to murder, dismember, and then smuggle his body out of the country, without their knowledge, that's not exactly something any country is going to just shrug its shoulders on.

Totally exculpatory evidence in the favor of the Saudi story, obviously. 

 

"Hey Jim you seemed to punch him pretty hard I think he might be dead?"

 

"Oh no that's exactly what I didn't want to happen. What should we do?"

 

"Put on his clothes and walk around in public?"

 

"Brilliant."
