I urge you to read every bit of it.
"Back in April of this year, a journalist in Gaza wearing a vest marked "PRESS" was deliberately shot and killed by IDF snipers. That brings the total number killed to 18 since the start of the Second Intifada. No one of consequence called for regime change in Israel.
As of July this year, there had already been six journalists killed in Mexico by drug cartels linked to Mexico's corrupt government and our own intelligence services. The last one beaten to death in a horrific murder. Last year the number of journalists murdered set a new record for the country at 42. As far as I know, the MSM and Lindsey Graham have yet to call for sanctions and regime change.
In Columbia there have been two murdered for covering things the rulers didn't want covered. But we like Columbia's neoliberal government so for now, not a peep about changing it.
What makes the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi so different? This is a question a few writers and researchers have been asking themselves and a couple of us have come to some honest, sensible, business-oriented answers... since of course the U.S. and her allies are all about Business.
Scott was gracious enough to link to my previous post on this very subject:
Now let's be clear. I write about Khashoggi's disappearance because the only hard evidence that we have before us is this...
That is a blurry image of a middle aged man walking toward the door of the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. It is not proof of a murder. It is proof someone walked toward a door and then entered the building.
Everything else is speculation or statements from "anonymous sources close to the investigation" meaning it's all baseless rumor, innuendo or deliberate disinformation.
It is entirely possible that the man in the image is not Jamal Khashoggi. And it is entirely possible that it is.
Therefore it is also entirely possible that Khashoggi is not dead by the hands of the Saudis and simultaneously... it is.
But it is not definitive by any stretch of the imagination in either way... unless all of a sudden you take our intelligence assets at face value as if they never lied to us before. Which is quite a leap of faith in my opinion."

This is my 11th year of blogging. The media disinfo surrounding this event is incredible.
And non credible. That is the main stream and the alternative, both.
Wild speculation. Gruesome conjecture. Sordid and sundry surmising's.
To use an older term, I've been gobsmacked, to witness the discourse around this event.
'If it bleeds it leads" And most every one follows.
And if it's been sliced and diced and stuffed in a bag? All the better!
I guess that's why those that hold the power can get away with what they do?
Because we, as a whole, are so easily manipulated and lead. Sigh....... Good night.
