TFG Is No Longer Around to Cover Up Prince Bone Saw's Crimes

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince likely approved the killing of U.S.-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, according to a newly declassified U.S. intelligence report released Friday.
A Turkish bug planted at the consulate reportedly captured the sound of a forensic saw, operated by a Saudi colonel who was also a forensics expert, dismembering Khashoggi’s body within an hour of his entering the building. The whereabouts of his remains remain unknown.

You can read the report here. It doesn't discloe any of the sources of information leading up to the conclusion.

Turns out the Turks had the placed bugged than we did. The Turks didn't as much of the Elint as we did. Hydrofluoric acid is nasty stuff. It's only used in quantity for oil production.

Didn't the Feds already say this was done at MBS's behest?

Not officially, 0_0.

It's nice not having personal presidential business dealings with a hostile country. It made me feel dirty. The above the table support is bad enough.

So Biden is now covering up MBS's crimes.
Nothing has changed. Saudi Arabia is too big.

There's a difference between covering up (what TFG did) and acknowledging but not doing anything about it (what Biden seems to be doing).

Size does matter. The US gets away with shit that would get the leaders of a middling nation brought up on charges. Extraordinary rendition, torture, remote-control assassination.

I do hope that Biden really means it when he says that he has better ways of holding MBS accountable than sanctions.

Pardon this Canadian's ignorance, but who is TFG? I see the initials appearing in news from Carol Lenning & Phil Rucker's new book. Dan

“TFG” is “the former guy”; the last president.
