Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 20, 2018

The crime against Jamal Khashoggi was a terrible one, and one that our country does not condone. Indeed, we have taken strong action against those already known to have participated in the murder. After great independent research, we now know many details of this horrible crime. We have already sanctioned 17 Saudis known to have been involved in the murder of Mr. Khashoggi, and the disposal of his body. Representatives of Saudi Arabia say that Jamal Khashoggi was an "enemy of the state" and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, but my decision is in no way based on that -- this is an unacceptable and horrible crime. King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman vigorously deny any knowledge of the planning or execution of the murder of Mr. Khashoggi. Our intelligence agencies continue to assess all information, but it could very well be that the Crown Prince had knowledge of this tragic event -- maybe he did and maybe he didn't! That being said, we may never know all of the facts surrounding the murder of Mr. Jamal Khashoggi. In any case, our relationship is with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. They have been a great ally in our very important fight against Iran. The United States intends to remain a steadfast partner of Saudi Arabia to ensure the interests of our country, Israel and all other partners in the region. It is our paramount goal to fully eliminate the threat of terrorism throughout the world!

If Obama ever whitewashed the murder and dismemberment of a journalist by an arab prince simply because he buys our stuff, Laura Ingrahm would be spouting hot magma from every orifice and so would every rightwing POS on this site.

You gotta love how Humpy called this dismembered journalist the "Enemy of the State" to make it "OK".

Interestingly Humpy also calls OUR journalists the "Enemy of the People".

Maybe our Journalists should be required to wear those smart apple watches that record everything so we can find out later what happened to them when they disappear.

It was the magic Orb that done it to him.

He fondled the Magic Orb and now he is a Secret Muslim.

I hear it happens all the time. That's what The People say.

Sometimes you can become a Secret Muslim just by wearing the magic Muslim garb.

I saw that on the internets, too! So it must be true!

He didn't need to hear the tapes to know what happened. I think someone should shackle him to a chair and play the recording repeatedly for a few hours at least. Might make him, I don't know - human?

No way he will listen to that tape. Too Real.

Humpy is not interested in Reality.

Humpy is interested in one thing, his Money.

You just gotta saw a few bones and boil a few journalists in acid every now and then.

Well we haven't seen his birth certificate yet, so he must be hiding something. I don't think he is a "secret Muslim", I think he's a "secret Russian". Show us your birth certificate Dotard, and not the short form.

When America turns a blind eye to journalists being brutally murdered because they happen to be Saudi citizens it's only a matter of time until we turn a blind eye to American journalists being brutally murdered. Trump is the most immoral person to ever sit in the WH. I am honestly disgusted by him and afraid for our future because of him. Trump could be the final nail in the American coffin.

I have nothing fit to print that I can say about this thing that, somehow, sits in the WH.

If you're a Republican, start speaking out. End this nightmare.

If you believe the mainstream story, the Saudis financed 9-11. Our government blocked the victims and their families from suing Saudi Arabia for their loss. How is this any different?

This is not a case with that moron Trump 'siding' with Saudi Arabia. It is a case of him siding AGAINST the media. The media pushed this narrative into the ground. They thought they could saturate the presses and craft an over-the-top response just like they did with the lies that led to the Iraq invasion 15 years prior.

Kashoggi is just one person. There are literally hundreds of innocents killed and maimed every day that the media simply ignores. Reporters too. Kashoggi knew the risks involved with his position. An 11 year old child overseas who is left without a mother and a father because some American-made bomb tore them, one fine day, into shreds-- doesn't.

The day the media stop being complete hypocrites and speak out on all forms of murder done in America and its allies' names is the day that people start doing something serious about their brethren being chopped up into cube steaks.

The "FACTS" no longer matter. Whether you care to admit it or not, the mainstream media has been known to cry wolf (or just remain silent) many many many times in the past.

Except that is not the mainstream story. The mainstream story is to believe the redacted 9-11 Commission (coverup). The Saudis were up to their eyeballs in 9-11 and no American should ever forget that. Trump and his family have received billions from the Saudis for their personal businesses, they are traitors sold out to the perpetrators of 9-11. Tell me something folks, why does America hate Iran? What has Iran done to America? When you can honestly look at that false premise you might, if you're really willing, understand how America is being duped into supporting our enemies and governed by a traitor who gets richer by selling us out every single day.

This is why Humpy is not MY President. He does not consider himself my President as I am apparently just an "angry left wing mob" and I do not recognize his authority over me as he is a criminal who supports other criminals.

Might as well impeach him and start over. He is less than worthless.

When the Democrats take charge of the House hearings should be held to determine how much of the corruptions the Republicans in the House and the Senate were aware of. They should be subpoenaed to testify, under oath, about what they knew and evidence such as emails, letters, etc. should be also subpoenaed to determine if they are telling the truth. If they are found to have covered anything up they should be charged. When Senators and Representatives serve on committees aren't their own words subject to the perjury laws that those they are questioning? Seems to me that they should be.

Might as well live in a dream world. Republicans will never vote for impeachment much less conviction in the Senate. Even when the Dems take the house they won't have the votes to impeach.

Well, he did drone the guy who published Inspire magazine, which has a pretty good piece on the ten-year anniversary of 9/11. It's called "the most successful covert operation in history" or something.

"by an arab prince"

Oh. That's different. Can't have Arab princes acting like Uncle Sam.

Stay in your lane, Saudi Arabia!
