  1. Since the ‘interrogation gone wrong’ story was first floated, it was clear that the project’s operational leader (not its authorizing entity) would be ‘thrown under the bus’ to protect MBS. His biggest ‘tradecraft’ error was using two of MBS’s private jets to fly the hit / assassination team to / from Istanbul. Putin would have been more careful (and used polonium or a banned military grade nerve agent) and not used the medieval methods the Saudi’s knew best.

  2. Wait! Trump just said Khasgoggi MIGHT be dead. So, no body, no death? Ask Trump.

  3. Delusional Don will believe it. Anything to make sure the Saudi money flows in 2 years when he is our of offic. Sad!!

    The solution is easy. Ahmed al-Assiri says that he went beyond the orders of MBS because Saudi intelligence showed him that Khasgoggi was secretly working with the Houthi’s to undermine the war effort, and so being the patriot he is, he eliminated the traitorous spy. When asked for the intelligence the Saudi’s will say they can’t show it as it would reveal sources and methods. al-Assiri admits this publicly in front of a judge for a nice show, and is sentenced to jail for some time for exceeding orders. I reality he serves out the time in a well appointed secure compound in Riyadh.
