Saudi public prosecutor: Khashoggi killing a “premeditated crime”

The Saudi public prosecutor was quoted Thursday as saying that the killing of Jamal Khashoggi was a premeditated crime. On Wednesday,Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman pledged that the journalist’s killers would be brought to justice. The prosecutor’s account came after a joint Saudi-Turkish task force questioned suspects. According to media reports, CIA Director Gina Haspel, during her visit to Ankara this week, was allowed to hear audio recordings that Turkey claimed captured the killing of the Saudi journalist. On Thursday the crown prince chaired the first meeting of a committee to reform the state’s intelligence services, which was set up by King Salman after Khashoggi’s death.

      The Headline has become a Backline into this Day and Age of By-Line media that goes by in a Blink of an Eye. Right now, Pipe Bombs, Media Elites with Bi-Partisan Name Calling, Marches In Mexico, and CNN-FOX Network Wars leads that bleed from twisted tongues on fire for the upcoming election. Today’s Headline will be Tomorrow’s Backling, and hard to keep up among all the noise.

      This will be addressed after the election by some in the Media, and dismissed by most toning it out. It is today’s reality of instant yesterday news, moving in minutes now, no longer days or weeks.
