Jamal Khashoggi’s Body Was Drained Of All Blood Before Medical Expert Dismembered Him, New Report ClaimsJamal Khashoggi’s body was brought to a sink and drained of blood immediately after he was murdered so he could be more easily dismembered, a gruesome new report claims. The murder of the Washington Post journalist has still been shrouded in some mystery as his body has never been found, but a new report from Turkey’s Hurriyet Daily News claims that one of the members of the team of Saudi agents that killed Khashoggi had a very detailed plan to dismember and dispose of the body.

Explosive New Report Says CIA Has Taped Recording Of Saudi Crown Prince Ordering Jamal Khashoggi’s Killing

Explosive New Report Says CIA Has Taped Recording Of Saudi Crown Prince Ordering Jamal Khashoggi’s KillingIn a massive new twist to the saga surrounding the brutal murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a bombshell new report in a Turkish newspaper now claims that the CIA finally has the evidence it needs to implicate Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of murder, according to Haaretz. Ever since the killing of Khashoggi in Istanbul’s Saudi embassy in early October, Turkish media has steadily published reports accusing the Saudi administration of carrying out the execution. While Saudi Arabia denied any knowledge of the killing and pleaded innocence initially, the constant barrage of growing evidence has meant that it has had to alter its position on the killing.

Jamal Khashoggi's final moments caught on leaked tape recording

Jamal Khashoggi's final moments caught on leaked tape recordingA transcript of a tape recording of murdered Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s final minutes has been leaked, in which one of the alleged killers is heard calling him a “traitor”. The 11-minute audio, the contents of which are revealed for the first time, was released on Monday evening by Turkish news website Haberturk. "Let my hand go. Who do you think you are? Why are you doing this?" the report quotes Khashoggi as saying, as  several members of an alleged 15-man “hit squad” accost him as soon as he enters the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct 2. "You traitor! Your day of judgment has come!" a man alleged to be Maher Mutreb, the suspected oordinator of the mission who worked for some time in the kingdom’s embassy in London, is quoted as replying to the Washington Post columnist. Khashoggi and four members of the squad are heard quarrelling for at least seven minutes before the audio goes quiet.

He is also reportedly heard saying that Khashoggi's shoes are too tight for his feet. In CCTV video footage taken from the back entrance of the consulate Madani is seen several hours after the murder wearing Khashoggi’s clothes but with his own trainers. The tapes have been leaked by the Turkish government to a number of local media outlets, however none have published the reportedly gruesome audio. Devlet Bahceli, a politician in Turkey’s main nationalist party, warned on Tuesday that “the circle is tightening” around Saudi's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

"It was very violent, very vicious and terrible," he said. Over the weekend, the US president called reports that Prince Mohammed ordered the killing "premature." He said that it was "possible" and that it was also possible that people will never know the truth. Mr Trump faces increasing pressure to take tougher measures against Riyadh, amid a growing consensus that the crown prince, who has unchallenged power in the ultraconservative kingdom, must have known about the operation. France's top diplomat said Monday that his country was mulling sanctions against Saudi Arabia. Germany on Monday announced that it has banned 18 Saudi nationals from entering Europe's border-free Schengen zone because of their suspected connections to the killing. German officials, who earlier banned new weapons exports to Riyadh, also said they are halting previously approved arms exports. Late last week, a bipartisan group of US senators introduced legislation that calls for suspending weapons sales to Saudi Arabia; sanctions on people who block humanitarian access in Yemen or support the Houthi rebels; and mandatory sanctions on those responsible for Khashoggi's death. "There must be a transparent, credible investigation into Khashoggi's murder," New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in introducing the bill with two Democratic and three Republican colleagues.

CIA concludes Saudi Crown Prince ordered murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi

CIA concludes Saudi Crown Prince ordered murder of journalist Jamal KhashoggiThe CIA has concluded Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to US media. Khashoggi, who was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last month, was reportedly given assurances that it was safe for him to attend the consulate in a phone call with the Saudi ambassador to the US, Khalid bin Salman, who is the brother of the Crown Prince. The Washington Post reported on Friday night that the US intelligence agency intercepted a call from the Crown Prince to his brother Khalid in which he instructed him to telephone Khashoggi. It is not clear if Khalid bin Salman knew that Khashoggi would be killed, but it is the clearest evidence yet that the order to murder the journalist came from the very highest levels of the Saudi government.  Saudi Arabia has repeatedly denied that the Crown Prince had any involvement in the death of Khashoggi, who had been a fierce critic of Mohammed bin Salman.  Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Credit:  REUTERS The revelation will put further pressure on President Donald Trump to publicly rebuke Saudi Arabia's leaders over the diplomatic crisis. The White House has so far been reluctant to damage their relationship with a key ally and trading partner in the Middle East, with Mr Trump repeating Saudi claims that the murder was the result of rogue agents. The Crown Prince, who is expected to become the next Saudi king, had been seen as a moderniser by Western allies. However international outcry over the murder of Mr Khashoggi has brought his involvement in the affair under heavy scrutiny.  Saudi Arabia has offered shifting explanations or the incident, most recently claiming that rogue operatives injected Khashoggi with a lethal drug overdose. The kingdom has announced charges against 11 people it says were involved and vowed to seek the death penalty against five. Some of the hit team have been identified as key aides to the Crown Prince and other senior Saudi officials. The CIA reportedly obtained the intelligence that Khashoggi's life may have been in danger before his murder but it was not discovered until after his disappearance, intelligence sources told the Washington Post.  Khashoggi was not considered "a person of interest" before his disappearance, and was regarded as protected from American intelligence gathering in part because of his status as a US resident, according to the sources. It was only after his death that US intelligence agencies began searching their archives and uncovered material suggesting the Saudi royal family had been attempting to lure the dissident back to the country. Khalid bin Salman issued a vehement public denial of the reports, insisting that his last communication with the journalist was by text message in 2017.  As we told the Washington Post the last contact I had with Mr. Khashoggi was via text on Oct 26 2017. I never talked to him by phone and certainly never suggested he go to Turkey for any reason. I ask the US government to release any information regarding this claim.— Khalid bin Salman خالد بن سلمان (@kbsalsaud) November 16, 2018 "I never talked to him by phone and certainly never suggested he go to Turkey for any reason. "I ask the US government to release any information regarding this claim," he added.
