Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The powerful were behind the curve as a security detachment of the Saudi monarchy planned and executed the murder of Jamal Khashoggi ... see my earlier reference to Saudi News and Blogs demanding the head of traitors and Saudis not loyal to the Salman monarchy!

Rethinking the plot, rightwing extremist Donald Trump had some time to redo the narrative to safely continue the billion dollars sales of military goods to the Sunni Gulf States: KSA - UAE - Kuwait - Bahrain.

Trump suggests 'rogue killers' in writer case | AP |

President Donald Trump is suggesting that "rogue killers" may be responsible for whatever happened to missing Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

Trump told reporters as he departed the White House en route to Florida Monday that he spoke by phone with Saudi Arabia's King and that "The King firmly denied any knowledge" of the disappearance.

Trump says he doesn't "want to get" into King Salman's mind, but says, "it sounded to me like maybe these could have been rogue killers."

He adds: "We're going to try getting to the bottom of it very soon, but his was a flat denial."

"Police and the MİT [Turkey's National Intelligence Agency] are now probing this claim seriously. They are looking into whether the body of Khashoggi was dissolved using acid," she said.

Turkey and Saudi Arabia are expected to conduct a joint "inspection" on Oct. 15 of the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

Separately, Saudi Arabia's King Salman on Oct. 15 ordered an internal probe into the case.

"The King has ordered the Public Prosecutor to open an internal investigation into the Khashoggi matter based on the info from the joint team in Istanbul," a Saudi official, not authorised to speak publicly, told Reuters.

Asked when the public prosecutor could make an announcement about the investigation, the official said: "He was instructed to work quickly."

Of course, he little leaguers France, Germany and the Unite Kingdom will close ranks with the most powerful nation. Never mind Trump and his cohorts run the White House.
