I’m wondering why the Washington Post cares about what really happened to Jamal Khashoggi.
The Saudis say that he was accidentally killed after engaging in fisticuffs with an unspecified Saudi citizen.
Afterwards, they say, he was cut up into pieces and disposed of to disguise what really happened.
Several patsies, er, culprits have been arrested.
What’s wrong with that explanation?
It’s not too far off the mark from the flimsy excuse our elites gave after killing JFK.
Our corporate leaders didn’t like JFK so they got rid of him. He was messing with their money.
Mohammed bin Salman didn’t like Khashoggi, so he got rid of him.
What’s the difference?
Isn’t this what governments do?
Isn’t it in the prerogative of any government to make up silly but barely plausible explanations for their assassinations?
We blamed the Kennedy assassination on one guy.
Isn’t what’s good for the goose good for the gander?
The Washington Post didn’t give and still doesn’t give two fucks about the truth of the Kennedy assassination, so why should they care about Khashoggi?
They need to get with the program and stop being conspiracy theorists.
Why, the idea!
To think that fifteen Saudis could meet at the Saudi Embassy before Khashoggi got there is totally ridiculous.
That would require too much sophistication.
Somebody would have talked by now.
You can’t keep something like that secret.
What about deathbed confessions?
Hah! Clearly the Washington Post is engaging in delusional crackpot thinking.
