Death of Jamal Khashoggi: Exposure of a Saudi Mobile Torture Chamber

Complete article link

Truncated paragraphs presented in bullet format from the above link:

Saudi National Salah Muhammad A Tubaigy:

“He is listed as the president of the Saudi Fellowship of Forensic Pathology and a member of the Saudi Association for Forensic Pathology.”

“Salah Muhammad al-Tubaigy, who has been identified as the head of forensic evidence in the Saudi general security department, was one of the 15-member squad who arrived in Ankara earlier that day on a private jet.”

“Tubaigy began to cut Khashoggi’s body up on a table in the study while he was still alive, the Turkish source said.”

“The killing took seven minutes, the source said.”

Think of the number 7:

“In 2014, London-based Saudi newspaper Asharaq al-Awsat interviewed Tubaigy about a mobile clinic that allows coroners to perform autopsies in seven minutes.”

The owner of this site works within a peri-operative environment in an acute care hospital.   In seven minutes, it is possible for a surgeon to perform a simple incision and drainage of a finger.   Toes, take a bit longer.  The “record” for removal of an appendix at my facility is 12 minutes with the average being double or triple the time based on client frame and morbidity.  There is no such thing as a “seven minute autopsy”. It is ludicrous.

What M. al-Tubaigy was most likely describing in 2014 was a secondary use for the mobile clinic: that of vivisection.

There is nothing new under the sun

And evil awakens with each new dawn.

Jamal Khashoggi was diced up whilst still alive.   The forensic pathologist has done this before and has a point of reference and a bit of guidance for his audience:

“Tubaigy began to cut Khashoggi’s body up on a table in the study while he was still alive, the Turkish source said.

The killing took seven minutes, the source said.

As he started to dismember the body, Tubaigy put on earphones and listened to music. He advised other members of the squad to do the same.

“When I do this job, I listen to music. You should do [that] too,” Tubaigy was recorded as saying, the source told MEE.”

Do I believe that Jamal Khashoggi underwent a vivisection?  Yes.

Do I believe the House of Saud has a mobile torture chamber?  Yes.

Do I believe that Crown Prince bin Salman is an evil son of a bitch who must not be allowed to retain his immense power?  Yes.

Do I believe that there are certain actions which are so heinous as to receive global condemnation which is followed through with severe punishment for chain of command and their operational marionettes?   Naturally.

 

Addendum:

And what was in that suitcase?

Trump’s Benghazi Moment

If we are to believe that rogue killers:

1)  Hastily scrambled a team of  15 qualified operational intelligence officers with travel documents in hand

2)  Chartered two Gulf Stream jets

3) Did not file an official flight manifest and flight plan

4) Left Saudi airspace without being detected

5) Entered a consulate building  in unofficial capacity and without a general alarm being sounded

6) Interrogated and killed a person of interest

7)  Moved without invitation into the Consul General’s residence for several hours

8) Returned to Saudi Arabia undetected and without mission plan known to the state

We believe not only the improbable but what is sure to prove a miraculous event.

If we believe that the President of the United States is providing cover for a murder orchestrated from the highest level of chain of command, then we have a rogue liar attempting to save the tarnished reputation of the Crown Prince.

Will he continue to lie to the American people?  Or will he speak the truth?

This is Trump’s Benghazi moment.

Addendum to previous:

The cast of characters gives witness to the fingerprint of the Crown Prince on this assassination

Many articles are now leaning toward “spin” and character defamation to cause public opinion to focus on the murder victim’s historical past (given without context to our alliances at the time that Khashoggi mingled in certain circles himself).

For this journalist,  this remains  Trump’s Benghazi moment.  Hillary lied to the American people.  Donald lies to the American people.  Flip a coin….

Venezuela sells oil to Iran.  They take a pounding for human rights violations. The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia orders the slaughter of a citizen inside a consulate.  Saudi Arabia sells oil to us and is involved in a financially lucrative arms deal with our nation.  Secretary of State Mike Pompeo rushes off to Saudi Arabia to hold the king’s hand, smiling broadly for the press corps.

See how this works?

My feelings on the assassination of Jamal Khashoggi run very deep and will be expressed in private, with individuals who might have access to the truth and also be willing to tell the truth. This journalist has contacts who have been seated within the palaces of the king and princes of the House of Saud.

But truth cannot be shared.  Because the truth is –  we continue to support autocratic and oppressive regimes in the name of “stability” and to maintain a f-cking bad world order.

Meanwhile, the Saudi consulate in Istanbul has received a new coat of paint on the walls. Gosh.  I wonder who thought that up?

Second addition to this blog post:

So put on earphones and listen to music while you dismember a living human being:

House of Saud version of Hannibal Lecter

Do you continue to have the stomach for our POTUS providing cover for this? I rarely speak of moral outrage.  Now – would be that time.

The spoon-maker cannot compete with the hardware of war.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Shaytan

One man is hated.  Two Gulf Stream jets are hastily scrambled.  An assassination team with a robust support squad is deployed.  And inside the Saudi consulate of Istanbul,  a killing field.

If the wet dream of a fertile juvenile imagination produced the aforementioned, what will Crown Prince Mohammed bin Shaytan be capable of in  coming decades?

We have a problem on our hands.  Bin Shaytan is testing the reins of state.

Shaytan whispers. But team America whispers too, and walks about wearing  one sandal.

President Trump opines,  “It’s a sad situation….”  Sad, is when your cat dies.  Criminal action inside a consulate is about the rule of law and international norms for diplomatic behavior.

This took place in Turkey…

“…and to the best of our knowledge, Khashoggi is not a United States citizen.”

What’s the point here? (Ahhh, yes!  The coveted arms deal….)

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo offers up the weakest of public responses.

National Security Advisor John Bolton acts like he has had an aphasic stroke when speaking of the Khashoggi affair.

Even Mini Me Trump has retweeted his disdain for the Khashoggi tragedy.

Historical Context and Timeline Count

This  is Swd – Arabic black-on-green – black ops against private citizen abroad against the backdrop of the state color. This is also a noted pattern of behavior emerging from the brutal  imagination of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Shaytan. Kill your personal enemies.  Or if not killing them, abduct them on foreign soil and whisk them back to Saudi Arabia, and  intimidate and incarcerate family members still residing in the Kingdom.

This is the stuff of Al-Kahf.  Be careful of your allies.

And certainly, do pray ayat  al-Kursi.  Because if life is about foreshadowing and foretelling, it does not take a psychic to imagine the future peril posed by the Saudi State under the Crown Prince who lacks the wisdom and maturity to rule with justice.

A Peek into my early morning e mail

From a colleague  regarding the Khashoggi tragedy:

“The Kingdom-USA military alliance and trade level is immense.”

My response – truncated from the main text:

“I understand the nature of our intricate alliance with the very nation that sent 15 nationals to tear the heart out of our nation on 9/11. Money counts more than blood. It is a sad commentary.

I find it distasteful that Trump invites the fiance of Khashoggi to the White House. Just like the Yazidi woman who has become a media darling, receiving international fame and the Nobel Peace Prize. Throw in the ob/gyn doctor who has received the same. Toss in the Pakistani school girl shot in the head, and the face of hijab resiliency. The show must go on, correct? These overtures pacify the conscience of the senseless masses without accomplishing any real and lasting change.

I tire… of the games we play with the lives of others. Ahmed?  A game. The mouse in the Skinner box, offered enough pellets to marginalize his infantile political leanings.

Mother Theresa? A true hero. Tirelessly bathing and caring for lepers and the refuse of society.”

Jamal Khashoggi: An Appeal to President Erdogan

The sovereignty of a nation has been assailed. The disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi from an island of sovereignty within a lawful archipelago of sovereignty cannot be ignored. What happened to world renowned journalist Jamal Khashoggi whilst a guest of the Islamic Republic of Turkey must be addressed in forceful manner. Social order is dependent on consequences meted out for actions. And from the family unit to the top reaches of government, social order must be maintained.

This is your moment, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The world is watching. And this journalist makes her appeal.

Human rights for citizens are the domain of the individual state. A nation which abuses the citizens within her own borders holds accountability for the same. This accountability is to the electorate. But human rights for citizens who travel, find residence, and leisure opportunities within a hosting nation requires a higher order of operations if the world is to be seen as a friendly place. Above all else, native soil embassy and consulate configurations should be a place of safe pasture for citizens.

Journalist Jamal Khashoggi entered the Saudi consulate with what appears a confident stride.  No pleasantries awaited him on this day,  his second visit to conclude personal business. He has vaporized from sight.

The use of any embassy, consulate or fleet of diplomatic vehicles as a platforming device for state sanctioned vendetta against a private citizen is something which should be felt in the political marrow. All who enter to conduct their business must be fully assured of their safe conduct. And all who leave, must do so in same manner. Entering with life and limb intact should provide for exit in same manner.

Jamal Khashoggi is seen entering the Saudi consulate with a confident stride. My best guess is that he left the facility safely vacuum-packed into various diplomatic pouches.

The situation presents as a crisis for the House of Saud. But their narrative is one of plausible deniability. The crisis for the Republic of Turkey is a different one. The narrative is not the current issue. Investigative operational tempo, robust harvest of forensic evidence and the need for a legal Thor’s Hammer are the crisis for the sovereign state. This is not the stuff of Norse mythology. It is real life, in real time, and what went down on Turkish soil falls back into the lap of the guardian of the state.

Abduct and/or kill your citizens, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, on native soil. The behavior will be duly noted. Abduct and/or kill your citizens whilst abusing the privileges afforded by the Turkish state, and the behavior is noted to be a criminal act against the state. It also violates everything held sacred regarding international law.

On 14 April 2017 this journalist penned an article, “Anatolian Shepherd”.

To President Erdogan my appeal is simple enough. Be the big dog on the porch. Show those fangs. And rip the jugular right out of this crime. Let the blood flow crimson in legal manner. Avenge not only what was done to Jamal Khashoggi. Avenge what was done against the sovereign state of Turkey.

Journalist Jamal Khashoggi

What do you believe about freedom of expression?

And what do you believe about Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman?

Civilized man or barbaric bipedal animal?

What do you believe is the true nature of the House of Saud?

If Jamal Khashoggi entered the Saudi consulate in Turkey and did not exit in same manner; if (as rumored) he was killed and dismembered inside the consulate – there will not be a trace of DNA evidence. There will be no blood to collect from the sewage system.  There will be no trace evidence inside the building. Of that we can be sure.

Jamal Khashoggi will have left the premises in various diplomatic pouches. Strapped  onto the shoulders of his assassins.

If he is alive – he will wish himself dead. This is a nation steeped in a history of treachery.

We embrace a fatal error.  Each one of us a potential future Jamal Khashoggi.
