THE CASE OF THE DISAPPEARING JOURNALIST
It is nothing short of being sensationally and morbidly bizarre. The Internationally recognized journalist from Saudi Arabia, Jamal Khoshoggi, went to the Arabian embassy in Istanbul, Turkey to obtain documents needed for him to wed a Turkish citizen and never returned. His bride-to-be notified Turkish police. They found a video of Khoshoggi on a surveillance camera, recording his entrance to the Arabian embassy in Turkey—those few seconds believed to be the last public record of his existence.
Prior to this time, 15 Arabians are recorded by a camera in the Ankara airport control tower as they exited private Saudi business jets on the tarmac. Turkish investigators believe they went to the Saudi embassy. The Turks also say they found a surveillance camera recording of a SUV with heavily tinted windows departing the embassy and persist in believing that it contained the dismembered body of the journalist, who among other pursuits, was a correspondent for the Washington Post newspaper.
So, the case is solved, and now all that needs to be done is to locate the killers and arrest them. We're the designated worldwide police, aren't we? President Trump has embraced that cachet, hasn't he? Didn't Saudi Crown Prince What's His Name (With the beard, shown above, with his Father, King Salman) took umbrage over remarks made by Khoshoggi, critical of the Prince
State Department head, "Smiling Mike" Pompeo was soon on his way to Riyadh. I doubt very much he was sent to threaten to cancel that one hundred and ten billion dollar arms deal that's in the works with the U.S.
After all, it may have been some rogues that took a bone saw with them. Possibly some little, green rogues from outer space. Nothing, no thing should surprise, or shock us, anymore.
