Saudi team probing journalist's disappearance leaves Istanbul consulate

Turkey's investigation into the disappearance of Khashoggi has reportedly revealed recordings made on his Apple Watch, which synced with his iPhone being carried outside the consulate by Khashoggi's fiancée.

In this December 15, 2014 file photo, Jamal Khashoggi, then general manager of a new Arabic news channel speaks during a press conference, in Manama, Bahrain.

Meanwhile on Monday, a team of Turkish and Saudi investigators entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, the Associated Press reported. "And incidentally in this whole case of Khashoggi, [Turkish President Recep] Erdogan doesn't come into this case with what we used to say 'clean hands.' He has a awful human rights record". Cengiz contacts the Turkish police.

But no one in Washington, D.C., has ever been at a cocktail party with a starving Yemeni child, and so Riyadh's offenses against such children did not threaten the U.S. -Saudi alliance.

As is so often the case, when human rights conflict with war and money, war and money win - and not just under Trump, as some journalists have been quick to suggest.

October 8: Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., warns the Saudis of consequences if the government is found complicit in Khashoggi's disappearance.

A new hurricane is making its way toward Florida and is expected to bring more rainfall to southeastern North Carolina this week. A tropical storm warning was also in place for Isle of Youth in Cuba and from Tulum to Cabo Catoche along the coast of Mexico .

"The objective of (Sunday's) message broadcasted by the Saudi national media is twofold: one goal is to satisfy the domestic public opinion that Saudi Arabia and its royal family will not be humiliated and the other goal is to send a message to the US", Mitreski, researcher at the University of Sydney, told AFP. She urges President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump to "help shed light on Jamal's disappearance".

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Jeff Flake, members of the Foreign Relations Committee, said Congress was prepared to move quickly and firmly if Trump failed to adequately respond to the October 2 disappearance of Khashoggi. We don't know what has happened to him. Understandably and appropriately, the Washington Post has devoted extensive coverage to the story since Khashoggi's disappearance. "We're demanding everything", he said.

"We're developing a defence export industry and the government is putting up [billions] of dollars in public subsidies to get that off the ground, and guess who we are exporting these arms to?" That's a bad situation. You talk to experts, and this is what they say. "We do not like seeing what's going on".

Turkish officials have said they fear a Saudi hit team killed and dismembered Khashoggi, who wrote columns that were critical of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. "Jamal and I had many dreams, but the most important one was to build a home together".

US President Donald Trump and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow declined to speculate on what Trump might do after the president promised "severe punishment" in a "60 Minutes" interview. The intervention of the king comes soon after some Saudi officials threatened retaliation against any country that took punitive measures against the kingdom. "So I'd be careful to wait until we see what the facts are". Even Trump's principal factotum in the U.S. Senate, Lindsey Graham (R-SC), has said there would be "hell to pay" if the Saudi government is proven to have killed Khashoggi.

The statement was issued as global concern grew over the writer who vanished on a visit to the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul over a week ago.
