Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said on Saturday that the reporting into the circumstances surrounding the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi “has become fairly hysterical,” at a security summit in the Bahraini capital of Manama.

Al-Jubeir said that the investigation was ongoing and that “every day we uncover new things, every day we discover new items, new evidence comes to light.”

The minister also dismissed claims that the incident would have a negative impact on Saudi Arabia’s ties with the United States stating, “that relationship is ironclad.”

He added that there continued to be many reasons for good relations between Saudi Arabia and the West in general, saying “we have huge trade and investment, we have huge energy issues, we have a similar world view in terms of the need for balance and order in our world.”

After initially issuing conflicting statements, the Saudi Arabian government have admitted that Khashoggi died in their consulate in Istanbul, due to what they have called a “rogue operation” gone wrong.

What he is saying is, ” we have been doing this for decades, western leaders and MSM know we have been abducting Saudis that are critical to our regime, they know we have taken them home and delt with them……so why this outcry now”

Methinks, the Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister doth protest too much.
Four unbelievable excuses later from the Saudi authorities and still no presentation of Kashoggi’s body and you think the media is “hysterical”??? I would say the said Foreign Minster was lucky that the West’s media is choosing to ignore the crimes against humanity that his country and the UAE are committing against one of the poorest countries in the world, the Yemen. He should actually be counting his lucky stars.

Without Iranian poison spilled through the Houthi rebels, there’d be no war since Houthis started this mess…

The civil war in Yemen was initially between the former president Ali Saleh with the Houthis vs. president Mansur Hadi (Saleh’s former VP) who had remained in power after the expiration of his mandate. There is little proof that Iran is involved.

And just because there is a civil war between two local parties does not justify crimes against humanity committed by external third parties such as the Saudis and Emirates aided by Western powers.

Jubeir’s depravity and mental illness have been evident for many years. All this pitiful clown is going to achieve with these statements is to get himself on the same CIA “to do” list as his boss. Well done champ, it is going to be fun watching the hammer come down on you.
