Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

The Weird Part About the Khashoggi Disappearance

The first time I heard about Khashoggi (on the 4th), it was said that the Saudi Monarchy was ready to allow Turkey to inspect the embassy. I didn’t know who Khashoggi was. Was he important? Did he have anything to do with ISIS?

The next day (on the 5th), articles started streaming in. A “Jamal Khashoggi went missing” at the Saudi embassy in Turkey.

It occurred to me that the mainstream news was a day behind current events. His fiancee accompanied him to the embassy, their stated purpose was to pick up documents. He walked in, he never came back out.

Turkey’s investigators were then given access to the embassy. They didn’t find Khashoggi anywhere on the premises. It was a day later when the Turkish investigators concluded that Khashoggi was targeted by a 15 man hit squad. That he had been killed, carried out in bags, and flown out by the 15 man hit squad. The investigators also mentioned a tape that went missing. They speculated that the hit squad took it back with them to Saudi Arabia.

And now the latest.

On the 7th, Saudi investigators arrived in Turkey to participate in the investigations. An official at the Saudi embassy in Turkey denied claims that Khashoggi is dead.

-“If those who say he was kidnapped are focusing on his being in the mission, these are just rumors that have no proof,” Mohammad Al Otaibi said. “And we unfortunately regret some of the statements that have been made by Turkish officials who insist that (Khashoggi is) in the consulate … without it being built on facts.”

-Al Otaibi opened up his six-storey consulate on Saturday to Reuters, adding: “We are worried about this case.”

-“I would like to confirm that…Jamal is not at the consulate nor in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and the consulate and the embassy are working to search for him,” he stressed.

An anonymous source spoke to the Dailymail

An anonymous source close to the Saudi royals claims that Khashoggi was taken in a black Mercedes S-500 and a white minivan with four Saudi officials to Istanbul airport, where he was flown on a private jet to Dubai and then Riyadh where he is now being held.

This was reported on the 9th (yesterday). The anonymous source claims that this is what is being talked about by officials inside the Saudi government. High level officials he claims.

Nobody else is reporting on this. Just the Dailymail so it’s a bit weird.

According to the Dailymail, the anonymous source said that Khashoggi is still alive.

Here’s the weird part.

Why would the Sauds go through this song and dance of allowing Turkey access to its embassy on the 4th, if the Saudi royalty themselves knew the whereabouts of this journalist? Someone’s playing games I think.

Whether or not Khashoggi is still alive cannot be verified. No other mainstream sources are reporting on this, just the Dailymail, and even they say that these claims cannot be independently verified.
