The disappearance of the Saudi dissident journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, has cause an international outcry. He was videoed entering the embassy of Saudi Arabia in Turkey but never came out. At first the Saudis vigorously claimed that stories about his death were little more than lies designed to traduce the Saudi regime. It has now emerged that the Wahabbi dictatorship is prepared to admit that the renowned journalist died during a botched interrogation. There is still no word on were exactly his body is or if it’s in one piece. Speculation mounts that a Saudi team entered the embassy to dismember the corpse and dispose of it.
It’s hard to know what will happen should it be accepted that a journalist was killed under torture in an embassy. Trump has already begun making noises about not imposing severe sanctions against the regime to ‘protect American jobs’. It would appear that the law is only the law when it suits corporate interests.
The following report is from outside the Saudi embassy where Jamal Khashoggi disappeared, and is now feared dead.
