What the actual F:
The floor in the embassy was very slippery. It had just been cleaned. The reporter took a tumble. Sometimes heads fall off. And the timing of the royal family giving Bonespur $100 million was just coincidence.
You know you got issues if Erdogan is giving a lecture about due process and foul play.
Is Trump still trying to defend the Saudis or has he finally realized he's on the wrong side of this one?
He'll do more than Obama did when journalists were murdered.
With all due respect to the Khashoggi family . .
Good cops and other heroes die in the line of duty. It's right that their stories are reported far and wide and we all get to hear about it.
When a reporter dies in (or out of) the line of duty, their stories deserve a mention commensurate with the size of their audience and achievements. Prior to his unfortunate experience at his embassy, I had never heard of the guy and look forward to a return to the good old days. If there is a chapter 2, I hope it is being reported from a courtroom and, if he was murdered, I hope the cops get their man.
Now, shut up already.
How soon they forget; but then Osbama is a holy man. Just like Calypso Louie. And Jesse. And Al.
Free passes all around.
So Kashoggi was an anti Saudi columist,he spoke out against their abuses.He knew that they are a dangerous and powerful autocracy.
So how did he manage to let himself be lured into their embassy ina foreign country when his life was obviously at risk?
I’m not saying that Kashoggi’s death is unimportant ,but the treatment and attention it is receiving by the media compared to the endless atrocities that have gone on in the Mideast for the last 18 years is ironic at a minimum.The beheadings ,the Christian holocaust,the butchery in Syria.
Even to a casual observer this is just a left wing media attempt to somehow box Trump into an untenable situation.
Imagine if you will if Hillarity were president and this occurred?.....they’d be a brief blip about a murdered columist and that there would be an investigation and you would never hear about it again.....Or “this is a matter between Trurkey and Saudi Arabia,we need to remain neutral.....
I fail to see what a Saudi citizen in a Saudi embassy has anything whatsoever to do with the United States.
There you go Tom, confusing the crucial issue of the day with facts and old news. Dont you know it’s different now. It just is. All the smart people say so.
Hey dummy, when the first thing trump mentions after the fact is how it should not affect any of saudi’s hundreds of millions in weapons contracts with the US, you might say it has something to do with the US.
Tom didn’t do very well on the analogy portion of his standardized testing, did he? Nor did Mark. Two peas in a special pod.
If the Saudis are the "wrong side" which side is the "right side?"
No platitudes, please.
And neither did egomike...
Trump could make some gesture or sanction or punishment but whats really needed here is for the American Press to go to Saudi Arabia and fight to overthrow the House of Saud.
Wouldn’t it be inspiring to see Jim Acosta and Katy Tur and Nina Totenberg, Joe and Mika and all the rest of them fighting for justice? Avenging the murder of their colleague! Dan Rather’s not too old!
Just like the anti fascists joining the Spanish Civil War.
News quality here in America might improve too.
Wouldn't it be nice if journalists reported facts instead of opinion.
I think Cenci's got something there.
First stop, Saudi consulate, Istanbul.
Send in Michael Moore to give them a hand....and an arm.....maybe a leg, too.
The official word is that the MSM would love to form up a volunteer brigade to storm the gates in Saudi Arabia, but right now the are to busy handing out water, food and pampers to the caravan.
The military aged immigrants in that caravan will need those pampers when Trumps Air Force starts buzzing them.
They'll be sh177ing themselves.
So if a foreign state assassinates a U.S. journalist (in this case, a U.S. resident who works for a U.S. newspaper), we should just ignore it?
Yes. And make jokes about killing impoverished people from Central America.
Being a joke, as you are, beats any such suggestion all to hell.
Or should I have said jerk?
I missed the jokes about killing impoverished people in Central America.
Could someone repeat them so I can get upset too?
Dear Mystery Bedwetter, to adequately answer your question, can you please submit a list of which journalists you have in mind? We will review it and get back to you.
No joke intended about the pampers, Mattybubbles.
This caravan WILL NOT cross our border, as much as you commie bastards would like to see it happen.
