~I SIMPLY HAVE NO WORDS~
This incident seems to have shaken the foundation of the world. It has also shaken the hearts of many.
Except for Saudi Arabia and the illegitimate leader of America.
He was a prominent journalist who has covered major stories, including the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and the rise of Osama Bin Laden, for various Saudi news organizations.
For decades, Mr. Khashoggi had been close to the Saudi royal family and he also served as an adviser to the government.
But he fell out of favor and went into self-imposed exile in the US last year. From there, he has written a monthly column in the Washington Post in which he has criticized the policies of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
In his first column for the newspaper, Mr Khashoggi said that he feared being arrested in an apparent crackdown on dissent overseen by the prince since he became first in line to succeed his father King Salman earlier that year.
“The people being arrested are not even being dissidents, they just have an independent mind,” he told the BBC’s Newshour program just three days before he disappeared.
He first visited the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 28 September to obtain a document certifying that he had divorced his ex-wife, so that he could marry his Turkish fiancée.
But he was told he would have to return and arranged to come back on the 2 October.
“He did not mind walking into the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul because he did not believe that something bad could happen on Turkish soil,”
his fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, wrote in the Washington Post.
“Jamal was hardly concerned ahead of his second visit.”
