If Turkey is still a candidate for membership of the EU superstate, I would hope that the EU is taking note of Erdogan's treatment of christians

During the Cold War, we made some unsavory alliances, because the Soviet Union was an existential threat to the West.

CNN Reports Saudis Preparing to Admit Jamal Khashoggi Was Killed in ‘Interrogation Gone Wrong’
it sounds like they can't get away with denying it happened, so they're going to throw a minion off the back of the bus and blame him/them

They'll say they're sorry and Trump and Kushner can still build hotels there, so (almost) no harm, no foul. What is one less Washington Post columnist, anyway?

That seems to be the attitude of Jeff Bezos, who owns the WaPo
Because he also owns Amazon
Jeff Bezos has been quiet on the disappearance of WaPo journo
In particular, Amazon's cloud-computing division, Amazon Web Services, has been reportedly working on a deal to set up data centers in Saudi Arabia.

This is what happens to those who do the dirty work of princes.

Guardian had a great quote from the Scottish Play: "Here’s the smell of blood still. Not all the sweet perfumes of Arabia will sweeten this hand."

Kris “Tanto” Paronto is a Benghazi survivor



he does have a point about selective outrage
At about the same time as Khashoggi  disappeared, presumed murdered, in the Saudi embassy in Turkey, the head of Interpol disappeared, also presumed murdered, in China. And no one cares

Wait, he is allowed to tweet again? After threatening to kill president Obama? I guess Twitter needs the ad revenue...

He did not "threaten to kill president Obama"

Obama: “The politics of division and paranoia has found a home, unfortunately, in the Republican party. … they’ve embraced wild conspiracy theories by those surrounding Benghazi. Or my birth certificate.”

criticizing obama earned him a temporary suspension from twitter

The Obama administration initially blamed Benghazi on a youtube video by a coptic christian living in the US. Just a coincidence that it happened on the anniversary of 9/11
