Trump addresses Khashoggi with senior Saudi leader

Khashoggi case should not be politicized, says UN expert

Report: U.S. Knew of Saudi Plan to Capture WaPo Columnist, Failed to Stop It

A government source has told me President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is sounding more cautious than the leaks, because if he were to echo the allegations that Mr Khashoggi was murdered, it would mean kicking out the Saudi ambassador and consul general by now.

Steve Doocy noted the Washington Post has reported that Mohammed ordered the operation to lure Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia.

"The United States can not be in a military partnership with a country that has this little concern for human life", said Murphy, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

On Tuesday, footage and identities of the "assassination" squad were made public.

The incident has been largely absent from Saudi media, but on Thursday Saudi-owned newspaper Asharq al Awsat cited an unnamed source who said the kingdom was being targeted by "those who try to exploit the reality of the disappearance".

The version of events described by Turkish authorities is grisly. The state-run Anadolu news agency published the names and birth dates of all 15 Saudis.

Strengthening hurricane closes in on Florida Panhandle
Only three major hurricanes have made landfall in the Panhandle since 1950: Eloise in 1975, Opal in 1995 and Dennis in 2005. With Michael's winds projected to be even stronger than that, Wakulla County residents were urged to evacuate inland.

On Sept 28, Jamal visited the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul for the first time, despite being somewhat concerned that he could be in danger.

The Hurriyet newspaper and other media alleged that the consulate's 28 local staff were given the day off because a "diplomats' meeting" would be held there. The report did not cite a reason for the request, but any foot-dragging on the part of the Saudis will only reinforce suspicions that a crime is being covered up. The video ends with shots of two private jets, saying that six men left at 5:40 p.m. and seven left at 9 p.m. Two others flew out commercially, Sabah said. "We can not let this happen, to reporters, to anybody".

The Saudis have not presented any evidence to corroborate their claims, however, and say that video cameras at the consulate were not recording at the time.

"They're (the Saudis) spending $110 billion on military equipment and on things that create jobs. for this country".

Turkey says it will conduct a search of the Istanbul consulate, while Saudi Arabia's foreign ministry said the country was "open to co-operation" and a search of the building could go ahead. "That's why I want to say, we don't want to make any judgments about what happened, and we call for a thorough and transparent investigation". "And they should be cooperating with us".

During an interview on Fox News Wednesday night, Trump said he wanted to find out what happened to Khashoggi but balked when asked if he would support blocking further arms sales to Saudi Arabia, as some senators have suggested.

Google's Failed Social Network, Google+, Will Be No More
The company says it discovered and patched the issue in March but decided not to disclose it immediately. In the company's own words, "90 per cent of Google + user sessions are less than five seconds".

"We can't let it happen - we're being very tough and we have investigators over there and we're working with Turkey and frankly we're working with Saudi Arabia", he said.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said national security adviser John Bolton and presidential senior adviser Jared Kushner spoke on Tuesday (Wednesday NZT) to Crown Prince Mohammed about Mr Khashoggi.

Khashoggi had been living in self-imposed exile in the US since a year ago. When asked if he would consider blocking USA arms sales to Saudi Arabia, Trump said that would hurt the United States, citing such deals as a big part of a booming US economy. "I think she's in shock, now even more", her friend said.

Saudi Arabia remained silent as the images, though not offering definitive proof about Khashoggi's fate, played across television networks in Turkey and around the world. The administration's Middle East agenda heavily depends on the Saudis, including efforts to counter Iranian influence in the region, fight extremism and build support for an expected plan for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

Khashoggi had gone to the consulate in Istanbul to get paperwork he needed for his upcoming marriage while his Turkish fiancee waited outside.

US intelligence intercepted communications of Saudi officials discussing a plan to capture Khashoggi before he vanished, according to the Post, which cited two people familiar with the information.
