Pompeo: Saudis Didn’t Want To Discuss ‘Any Of The Facts’ In Khashoggi Disappearance


Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday that Saudi officials did not want to discuss the facts of journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance in their meetings with him.

“I don’t want to talk about any of the facts,” Pompeo said when asked if the Saudis told him if Khashoggi was dead or alive. “They didn’t want to either, in that they want to have the opportunity to complete this investigation in a thorough way.”

  1. Saudi Arabia is governed by a repressive, racist, antisemitic, misogynist, bigoted regime, led by a spoiled, pampered indolent extended family. They finance madrassas across the globe with the mission of brainwashing people into following the most radical interpretation of Islam. They are not a friend of the U.S. and if they are our allies in anything it is only an alliance of convenience.
    Unlike many other extremists, they are also very pragmatic and savvy at public relations, which means they will work with us when it’s to their advantage. This planned abduction and murder of Khashoggi was a miscalculation on their part – they probably thought they wouldn’t be busted, but Turkey’s electronic spying stripped away any chance they had at plausibly denying what they’d done.
    Now, the U.S. has to decide how to punish the Saudis while not at the same time boosting Turkey and Iran.

  2. they are GUILTY and they’re trying to come up with a way out…
    and the more they try the more they are digging their hole DEEPER..

    • How do you know they are guilty? I’d rather believe that the Deep State were behind it just like they were behind the chemical attack in Saudi Arabia about 1/2 year ago, even though Fake News did not officially say it.

  3. Who can forget Obama bowing down to them and kissing their feet? Who can forget Barry apologizing to the Princes for all of America’s evils and how they had it coming on 9/11?
