He was a sometime contributor to the WP. The US should not get involved in internal Saudi affairs. Kashoggi, contrary to some reports, was not a green card holder. He was a Saudi passport holder.
He wrote to op-eds. “TWO!”
This made him a journalist?
This line of reasoning is just pathetic. Look at the hoopla over this one death.
How many people are aware that there have been 100 “true” journalist deaths in Mexico since 2000?
That works out to around five per year.
Have we heard calls for Mexico’s government to be punished? You can try to say that cartels were responsible, but my take on it is that the government was tied to these via payoffs and the like.
This one death in Turkey bothers me a little. Nothing like it’s seeming to bother the media, who didn’t say squat about the journalists dying in Mexico. Once reported, silence...
It is also stated that the guy killed in Turkey was possibly working with Iran against the Saudis. Are we going to say we’ve never taken someone out on foreign soil who was an enemy of the state?
I’m not saying I’d never join the negative choir on this one, but I have a lot of skepticism about it being all Saudi Arabia’s devious fault, with nothing on the back of the guy taken out.
