Assassination Saudi Style
The Ochelli Effect 10-25-2018 Carmine Savastano
On a Thursday we sit down with author and researcher Carmine Savastano to discuss the evolving cover-up regarding the apparent assassination of Jamal Khashoggi.
Is this another case of the attempt to evidence getting the perpetrator caught? What happened with the “body double”?
Is the state trustworthy deciding whom shall be murdered? Is this amateur hour for assassins? What role is Saudi Palace intrigue playing in all this?
The stories keep changing, and the headlines have now shifted to the “MAGA-Bomber”. When does someone get killed in a fist fight?
Is a new level of violence in political debate becoming normal? What does the Turkish government have to do with Jamal Khashoggi?
This is not a simple case of a targeted journalist. Who gave the order? Why call it a rogue operation? Will anyone cares about this a few days from now?
Is MBS a player, or just being played? Should this even shock you? Does our current CIA chief know what happened after viewing the evidence in Turkey?
