Khashoggi

BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) cannot be trusted when it comes to drawing a conclusion on the Jamal Khashoggi case, Saudi Prince Turki Al-Faisal told journalists on Saturday.

“The CIA is not necessarily the highest standard of veracity or accuracy in assessing situations. The examples of that are multitude,” the Saudi prince said, as quoted by the Reuters News Agency.

The prince, a former Saudi intelligence chief who has also served as ambassador to the United States, said the agency’s conclusion that Iraq possessed chemical weapons before the U.S. invasion in 2003 showed it could be unreliable.

“That was the most glaring of inaccurate and wrong assessments, which led to a full-scale war with thousands being killed,” he said, speaking at an event hosted by the Beirut Institute think tank.

“I don’t see why the CIA is not on trial in the United States. This is my answer to their assessment of who is guilty and who is not and who did what in the consulate in Istanbul,” he added.
