US intelligence report on the assassination of Kashoggi

Last week Biden spoke by telephone with Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz ‘about the US-Saudi Arabia relationship’. Amongst other things the ‘US president affirms US commitment to Saudi defence, calls for diplomacy in Yemen and praises release of rights activists’.

Also on the cards ‘Biden officials are poised to release to the public a declassified intelligence report from US spy agencies on the October 2018 assassination of Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

It all sounded great last week. I loved the fact that Biden spoke to Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz, totally bypassing Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. ‘The report, required by Congress, is likely to acknowledge formally for the first time that US intelligence showed Khashoggi was killed by a Saudi hit squad acting at the command of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’.

But today the news isn’t that good. Will the truth ever come out?

‘Three names mysteriously removed from Khashoggi intelligence report after initial publication’.

‘The first of the three names removed is Abdulla Mohammed Alhoeriny, who has not been previously connected with Khashoggi’s death. According to a person familiar with the inner workings of Saudi intelligence, he’s the brother of General Abdulaziz bin Mohammed al-Howraini, a minister who is in charge of the powerful Presidency of State Security which oversees multiple intelligence and counterterrorism agencies. Abdulla (as it’s spelled by ODNI) appears in Saudi reports as the assistant chief of state security for counterterrorism.

The two other names that appeared in the unclassified intelligence report and then disappeared are Yasir Khalid Alsalem and Ibrahim al-Salim. It was not immediately clear who they are’.

‘US intelligence showed Khashoggi was killed by a Saudi hit squad acting at the command of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’. Will MBS be brought to justice? Will he also visit ‘chop chop’ square? Or will he receive a royal’s justice? No justice.

However, another cover-up has been uncovered.

Apart from being devious and evil he has also brought huge disrepute to Saudi Arabia, not that it’s ever been squeaky clean. He needs to be replaced.
