Sadly, he never walked out.
He became the victim of a brutal murder. From draining his blood to fake body doubles, every aspect of the story gets weirder. It even involves a 15-man Saudi hit team to take Kashoggi out.
Allegedly, the killing was orchestrated by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. More evidence now points to that being true, which is not surprising.
Khashoggi was a reporter at the Washington Post, and even lived in America for quite some time. He also has had some pretty questionable ties with the Muslim Brotherhood. It is also important to note that his family tree is full of questionable people, including a billionaire arms dealer.
Nobody deserves to be killed over being critical of a government. We need to know exactly why this hit was placed. Nobody should be stupid enough to believe that Kahshoggi was only a journalist.
The Saudis would not risk this much heat over killing a journalist for being critical. There absolutely has to be more to the story. All of Khashoggi’s personal and family ties need to be examined.
Nothing would excuse the murder of Khashoggi, but it is of extreme importance to know exactly why this occurred. With all of the disinformation and lies from both parties, it is hard to understand who would want this to happen.
It is looking less likely like Khashoggi was killed for simply being a Saudi journalist.
