I don’t know this source, by the way, it just happened to be the one that matched the search terms I used.

I don’t think so. Saudi officials have insisted Mr Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed though few people believe it.

No video show him leaving only entering.

Oh Trump and Kushner say it isn’t so and they were no near !

Apparently the embassy said there’s no video footage available with them since security cameras weren’t not working.. that’s so convenient!!

That’s the latest I’ve heard.
Interrogation gone wrong = tortured to death….

Sometimes when you smack someone during interrogation, pieces of them get knocked off.

Thank you all.
How do people keep kids from hearing the gruesome (“dismembered”) details by the way?

Tropical_Willie's avatar

@flo you can’t in this day and age. You can only tell them there are bad people in the world, and you will keep them safe.

I think most kids are desensitized to violence, at an early age. Well. Kids exposed to movies, games, and the Internet.

The media shows things that I don’t approve of all the time. Every 9/11, they show the planes crashing into the towers. Sometimes, they show the people jumping to their deaths from the fires. It makes me want to vomit.

I suppose so, @Mr.Grimm888 esp. regarding the jumping people on 9/11. I thought that they couldn’t show certain things, and newspapers can’t post the pictures, maybe not by law…
But how about “discretion advised for the news item in 2 minutes” or something like that.

Getting back on topic the Saudis are now saying Khashoggi died after a “fight” in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.source

So. That’s the 3rd change of the story….

Ahhh. The Friday news dump.
Always important stories released on Fridays.
Forgotten by Monday…..
How convenient.
I mean, what did we think ex-CIA director Pompeo was doing over there? Figuring out how to make this disappear so we can continue to sell billions of dollars of weapons to a great, and respectable country.

But where is the body.

Should ask for the body for an independent autopsy.
