After lying to the world since Oct. 2, Saudi Arabia is preparing a report in which they will admit that Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was killed during an attempted kidnapping by Saudi agents in Istanbul, Turkey, notes CNN.
President Donald Trump parroted Saudi King Salman’s lies about a “rogue killer” this morning.
Turkish officials said they have proof that Khashoggi was murdered and dismembered by Saudi agents, which the Saudi government has denied for nearly a month.
The Saudis are reportedly going to admit they intended to kidnap and bring Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia, but that he was somehow inadvertently killed during the crime.
The report is intended to absolve the Saudi government of responsibility for the murder by claiming “the operation was carried out without clearance and transparency, and that those involved will be held responsible.”
