Saudis Admit Khashoggi Killed At Consulate “In Fist-Fight”, King Salman Fires 5 Top Officials

Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff has weighed in on the Khashoggi murder admission from KSA claiming “the Saudi report of Khashoggi is not credible.”

The White House issue a statement…

Saudi Arabia confirmed tonight that Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was killed at its consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.

In a statement put out on Saudi state television, citing an initial investigation by Saudi prosecutors, SPA said that:

“an argument erupted between him [Khashoggi] and others whom he met in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul leading to a fistfight which led to his death.”

Prosecutors said the investigation was still ongoing and that 18 people, all Saudi nationals, had so far been arrested, SPA reported.

“The Kingdom expresses its deep regret at the painful developments that have taken place and stresses the commitment of the authorities in the Kingdom to bring the facts to the public,” the statement said.

Additionally, Saudi Arabia’s King Salman has removed a key royal adviser and a senior intelligence official..

King Salman issued an order to remove Saud al-Qahtani, an adviser to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, according to the state-run Ikhbariya television.

The monarch also relieved deputy intelligence chief Gen. Ahmed al-Assiri.

This follows the narrative reported by The New York Times on Thursday that Riyadh is looking to blame Assiri for the purported murder of Khashoggi in an effort to shield Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman from the blame.

Saudi King Salman has also ordered the formation of ministerial committee led by crown prince Mohammad bin Salman to restructure the general intelligence agency.

As Ali Shihabi, Founder, The Arabia Foundation, tweets:

“The removal of two top officials, a cabinet ranking, very powerful and close advisor of MBS and the Deputy Head of Foreign intelligence + 4 other Generals in foreign intelligence (virtually its whole top leadership) cannot be written off as a cover up. This is unprecedented.”

This is not saying “rogue killers” but implicating virtually the whole top leadership of foreign intelligence. They carried out a mission that went sour very quickly and tried to cover it up initially. Bad news travels slowly to the top.”

We await President Trump’s “very severe consequences.”

If you punch a person with your bloody stump, is it still called a fistfight?

It´s looks clear that the US President “Trump” is the puppet of the Saudis.

There is a Spanish saying: dime con quien andas y te dire quien eres. Tell me with whom you hang out and I’ll tell you who you are. Short and to the point.

If there were a fistfight between the 15-member hit squad and Khashoggi, and if he were killed in the process, why was this not admitted in the first place? Why was it necessary to remove his body in whole or in parts? Where is his body now?

This incredibly childish “reason” for what happened to Khashoggi in the embassy is an insult to even a complete moron’s intelligence.

Khashoggi accidentally fell into a paper shredder. Tragic, really…

Trump will go ahead with billions in weapons that are clearly marked “MADE IN THE USA”. He won’t think twice about the 10’s of thousands of civilians that Saudi’s will murder with them.

Here is a good read and interesting tidbit in the overall picture:

Was Las Vegas a Saudi Crown Prince Salman Assassination Attempt?

Nearly 3 weeks after his death (and 2 weeks after the uproar about it), the KSA investigation finds that Khashoggi has indeed died … and upon further investigation KSA says he died in a fist fight in the Istanbul consulate 3 weeks earlier …. even though a few days ago they were denying he had died in the consulate … and Trump now states he is satisfied with the investigation findings. Priceless.

Despite Saudis being too cowardly to punch!! What a pathetic lie – they, the perverted Saudi so-called authorities, had over two weeks to come up with something – surely they might have pretended that he suffered a heart attack after being denied his papers for marriage or something and they panicked because of his public status!!!! ErDOGan likely got paid a few million to stay quiet too – and probably jerks off daily watching the torture-murder vid. Add that to your twisted collection you sicko [email protected]

Fistfights and chokeholds with bonesaws – welcome to Saudi Arabia!

Damnednest thing you ever saw. Khashoggi walked in, sat down, and started sawing himself to pieces in front of us. I have no idea how he got a bonesaw through security, but he did, oh boy, he sure did. Some people will do anything, and I mean anything, to make Saudi Arabia look bad and tarnish the Crowned Prince’s good name. That was an unbelievably selfish thing for Khashoggi to do. He truly deserved the horrible death he suffered at his own hands. Made a big mess in the office too.

Died in a fist fight??? By any chance…the same ‘fist fight’ that shredded the body so it could fit into suitcases, to be flown out? How dumb do these bloody Arabs think the West is? And why does the West insist in kissing the Arab behind? Embarrassingly shameful.
