Talk:Jamal Khashoggi

From A Closer Look On Syria
Jump to navigation Jump to search

FTR, I don't believe for a second that Kashoggi is dead. This is a pretty obvious Muslim Brotherhood plot against the clown prince, with Kashoggi and his to-be-wife in on it. It could actually break MBS' rogue neck and Erdogan, having "coincidently" released agent, sorry "pastor" Brunson, has played everyone against everyone once again. And for once, for the good.--CE (talk) 20:57, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Sibel Edmonds on this (with just a hint of self- promotion) Isnt she somewhat connected with Turkish intel? I dont know --Diagonal (talk) 17:57, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
Her claim to fame was that when she worked at the FBI translation department after 9/11, Turkish intelligence which had infiltrators there tried to recruit her, which she refused and blew the whistle about. Her book "Classified Woman" about this is worth reading (and the PDF on the net). I once thought she is awesome, but in recent years it seemed to me that she increasingly has a screw loose. She has lost all reasonable collaborators (Collins, Corbett etc) over her antics, and now she sits on twitter and attacks independent reporters in vicious ways, for our topic most prominently Eva Bartlett and Vanessa Beeley. This Khashoggi research she does from Turkey, where part of her family lives (the other part is Iranian). Which should be extremely dangerous if what she says is true. And I think she has some good points here. --CE (talk) 19:25, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
Her previous claim Aug 7, 2018) was that 'CIA tries to prevent release of pastor Andrew Brunson'. Who was released by Turkey in October. Dubious sensational claim, with later events turning up differently. With this latest one, she may have good info on the personal and professional record of Kashhoggi (no time/opportunity to check her info). But the rest appears dubious. 'Mossad, MI6, CIA' threesome, a bad cliche, some shared interests and some competing, but not fully in bed together. How they, or US/UK, are supposed to benefit in an oil deal from that mess is unclear and unexplained, neither how US or UK would benefit, nor why the three services would act in unison in the face of such competition. Why would Saudis admit killing if it did not happen, not explained. Why his Saudi services doppelganger walked on video, not explained. Polygamy is legal in Saudi Arabia and he is below 4 wifes in total, so there is nothing too special. My (superficial) impression is that she writes as a security service would--some little known and true stuff with a few crucial details altered/omitted and all lined up to create trust to mislead with a desired effect --Resup (talk) 23:51, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
