So let me get this straight: we're being asked to believe Saudi Arabia & Mohammad Bin Salman carefully planned to abduct, torture & kill a guy inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul?

Let me just briefly go over why this is stupid.
1) The Saudi consulate in Istanbul is a secure location. That is, there security, both Saudi & Turkish everywhere, along with a ton of security cameras.

They would know this guy Khashoggi was going to be filmed ENTERING THE BUILDING.
2) HOW were the Saudis going to explain his being filmed on numerous security cameras entering the consulate but then supposedly never leaving?

The guy was supposed to disappear in THEIR building and never be seen again, which would point the finger right at...who?
3) So right there we're being asked to believe a carefully planned operation was carried out in such a manner as to IMMEDIATLEY POINT THE FINGER OF GUILT RIGHT AT SAUDI ARABIA.

Let me tell you how a real hit is done. It's done in a NON-secure location, no cameras, no witnesses.
4) So right off the bat we're asked to accept that highly intelligent Saudi operatives planned an assasnination op that would use everything but signal flags to tell the world IT WAS US WE DID THIS.
5) Then after 4-5 fun days of all this hysteria, it's discovered the guy whispering sweet nothings into Western reporter's ears where he's supposedly relating to them the deepest thoughts of Mohammad Bin Salman is...Khalid Saffuri.…
6) there's no body.

Despite all the blather about 'audio'! and 'video'! of the supposed killing, nothing has been release. It's all rumor and much of it is likley disinformation.
So, we don't even know a murder has taken place here. But much of the media coverage is geared towards trying to pretend the issue is already settled, Saudia Arabia did this, so it's time to boycott/withdraw from deals/hit them with sanctions and so on.
So keep all this in mind as we get ready for another week of fun narrative pushing by many of the players in this who have an agenda.
