WaPo Reluctantly Runs Khashoggi's Final Column

Man linked to Saudi prince at consulate when writer vanished

The Turkish government believes that Khashoggi was killed on the orders of the Saudi government.

Some of the individuals involved reportedly have close ties to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is widely known as MBS. "I will be forever grateful he chose The Post as his final journalistic home one year ago and gave us the chance to work together".

"Our foreign policy", he says, "has to serve our interest, which is to say the safety, security, and wellbeing of Americans". "So I think this is a way of emphasizing. that we somehow need the Saudis to confront this very, very "evil" threat coming from Iran".

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday that "we have a long - since 1932 - a long strategic relationship with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia".

The president said the truth would come out "by the end of the week".

Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor who lived in the United States, vanished on 2 October after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to obtain a document needed to marry his Turkish fiancee, Hatice Cengiz, who waited for him outside.

Pompeo has been gentle with the Saudis, issuing anodyne statements after the meeting like "I don't want to talk about any facts". "They didn't want to either, in that they want to have the opportunity to complete this investigation in a thorough way". Riyadh denies the claims.

Following a search by a Turkish forensics team, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that some "toxic materials" in the consulate had been "painted over".

The Saudi consul Mohammed al-Otaibi left Istanbul for Riyadh on a scheduled Saudia flight Tuesday afternoon, with Ankara insisting he had not been expelled but left of his own choice.
