YEAH!

Intercepts Solidify C.I.A. Assessment That Saudi Prince Ordered Khashoggi Killing
[www.nytimes.com]
The C.I.A. has evidence that Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi crown prince, communicated repeatedly with a key aide around the time that a team believed to have been under the aide’s command assassinated Jamal Khashoggi, according to former officials familiar with the intelligence.

The adviser, Saud al-Qahtani, topped the list of Saudis who were targeted by American sanctions last month over their suspected involvement in the killing of Mr. Khashoggi. American intelligence agencies have evidence that Prince Salman and Mr. Qahtani had 11 exchanges that roughly coincided with the hit team’s advance into the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, where Mr. Khashoggi was murdered.

The exchanges are a key piece of information that helped solidify the C.I.A.’s assessment that the crown prince ordered the killing of Mr. Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and Virginia resident who had been critical of the Saudi government.

“This is the smoking gun, or at least the smoking phone call,” said Bruce Riedel, a former C.I.A. official now at the Brookings Institution. “There is only one thing they could possibly be talking about. This shows that the crown prince was witting of premeditated murder.”

The existence of the intercepts was first reported by The Wall Street Journal, which reviewed a highly classified document on the C.I.A. assessment of Mr. Khashoggi’s killing. The leak of the secret report, according to officials, infuriated Gina Haspel, the C.I.A. director. It has also intensified calls by members of Congress to have Ms. Haspel go to Capitol Hill to brief them.

Mr. Qahtani has been one of Prince Mohammed’s closest advisers. When the head of the hit team, Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, was recorded by Turkish intelligence saying “tell your boss” that the team had carried out the mission, he was believed by American intelligence agencies to have been communicating with Mr. Qahtani.

Amazing, you had no problem with Saudi involvement with9.11 attack upon this country, nor with Saudis funding the jihadi uprising in Syria with a resultant 500,000 dead, but this one one act of butchery got your juices flowing.
Why is that?....

An Israeli intelligence company hacked the phone of one of Kashoggi's friends for the Saudi's, so plenty of people have their morals for sale in this case.

max, this note has me confused. I know of no one on this board who liked Saudi involvement with 911, or Syria.

Is this a misplaced post meant for some other Board?

sekker, this note has many confused, I am sure you can find those here on this board, who condemned for their instrumental role in 9.11, I am sure that you will cite the examples of those who have come against Obama/Clinton involvement in the Saudi plan for Sunni uprising aimed to overthrow a Shia based regime in Syria. Where Saudi money, with an extensive logistical support from Obama administration provided our arms and training to al-Queda jihadis, and their subsequent evolution, the ISIS..

I am sure you can show these ubiquitous examples of yours in droves....

WTH?? This note is straight up horseshit. NO ONE demanded action against the Saudis for 911 and general support for radicalized nutcases on these boards more than Steve G. He wouldn't shut up about it for years!

Dear Hal,
At no time have I said the Saudis were behind the Sept 11 attacks. I'm sure you can back up your stupid erroneous statement with quotes (seeing as how I said it so often).
However, the Saudi government has proudly spent tens of billions of dollars training imans and financing mosques which advocate Wahhabi fundamentalist Islam. This is quite different from financing radical terror groups.
One (the Saudi religious outreach) is a fact that is their policy. The other (me and 9/11) is either an error or a lie on your part.
Time for a retraction, Hal. You goofed.

max accuses Steve G. of giving Saudis a free pass over 9-11 involvement, unrelated to this thread topic (of course).

Hal essentially defends Steve G.

Steve G. manages to attack Hal.


I think I'm seeing a Russian-disinformation campaign played out in real time here.

Hal made two serious mis-statements about my past posts and characterized them unfairly. I think that was worth correcting.

I can't see how could possible describe this as a 'defense'.
or is this low-key sarcasm?
