Germany's leading right-of-center daily Die Welt this morning reveals that Jamal Khashoggi was not a journalist, but a high-level operative for the Saudi intelligence service, an intimate of Osama bin Laden, and the nephew of the shadiest of all Arab arms dealers, the infamous Adnan Khashoggi. John Bradley reported last week in the Spectator that Khashoggi, who allegedly met a grisly end in a Saudi consulate in Istanbul, was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist organization that among other things wants to replace the Saudi monarchy with a modern Islamist totalitarian state.
Gee. It's reported that the Saudis disposed of this problem.
S**t happens if you're a spy--particularly if you're a known pal of OBL and active in the Muzzie Brotherhood, which (I'm sure you know) is an un-indicted co-conspirator in terrorist activity in the USA. So basically, screw him.
By the way, Turkey is not a "firm friend" of the USA and hasn't been for the last few years--since it went Muslim-State. Who is the NYTimes trying to kid?
Hijacked from Grim, who knows a thing or two about the Middle East.
