HUMPTY DUMPTY SAT ON A WALL,
HUMPTY DUMPTY HAD A GREAT FALL;
ALL THE KING’S HORSES AND ALL THE KING’S MEN
COULDN’T PUT HUMPTY TOGETHER AGAIN.
(...)Despite warnings from his closest friends, #Jamal #Khashoggi, took a chance and entered the #Saudi #Consulate in #Istanbul on October 2, 2018 and never left on his own two feet. The prevailing wisdom is that he was murdered by Saudi assassins sent to Turkey to specifically target him. Killing him on Saudi diplomatic soil would conceal the crime and carrying diplomatic passports would facilitate the transport of his dismembered body to two private jets
.Turkey is taking a surprisingly aggressive position on this matter. #Turkey is very tight with #Qatar, a country the Kingdom of #Saudi #Arabia is trying to destroy on the laughable grounds that Doha supports #terrorism. Since both the Ameer of Qatar and the Turk president, #Erdoghan, support the Muslim Brotherhood as an Islamic alternative to #Western concepts of #democracy and majority rule, it shouldn’t be surprising to hear such tumultuous invective from Ankara. However, the Turks have muted some of their pronouncements out of fear of economic repercussions
.There can be no doubt that the Turks installed eavesdropping devices inside the Saudi Consulate. They also had closed-circuit cameras outside the building housing the consulate both at the front door and in a preschool facing the rear door. If, as the Saudis claim, Khashoggi left from the rear door, his departure would have been picked up by camera. But, he did not leave from the rear door
.Moreover, if he did leave by the rear door, why would he not have circled around to hop into his wife’s car waiting at the front? Hatice Cengiz, his Turkish wife, waited for half an hour after normal closing time for her husband. If one takes the Saudi story seriously, Mr. Khashoggi is still in the consulate in the style of Julian Assange
