In the World of American Politics, One Khashoggi Is Worth One Million Yemeni Lives Reply

A friend tells me today’s Women’s March on the Pentagon only attracted a few hundred people. Meanwhile, thousands will come out to protest Trump, Kavanaugh, the Alt-Right, or “hate.” The American Left makes me want to puke.

Jamal Khashoggi e5f4c

At this point we can only assume that the Turkish version of events regarding the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi is true. As always, I’m open to being proved wrong, and it’s certainly incumbent upon Ankara to release the audio evidence of which they claim to be in possession (though this, should it come out, will naturally be dismissed by the Saudis as fabricated or doctored), but the list of plausible alternative scenarios currently stands at zero. Khashoggi went into the Saudi consulate and was never seen again. If he had merely been kidnapped and jailed, we’d have heard from him by now. He would have appeared on Saudi state television and delivered some kind of scripted statement like Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri did last November. The House of Saud appears to prefer this time of year, autumn, for abductions and assassinations.
