We Trained Khashoggi’s Killers

As good Scissorheads already know, we rarely discuss international politics: it’s not our wheelhouse, we are not qualified, and mostly, I don’t understand the cogs and rubber bands under the hood of US Foreign Policy. Crown Prince Bone Saw’s hand-picked assassins were trained in the US:

Four Saudis who were involved in the death of the Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018 received paramilitary training in the US the year prior, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

The contract for the paramilitary training was approved by the State Department and carried out by a contracted group called Tier 1, according to documents and sources familiar with the matter, The Times reported.

Arkansas-based security company Tier 1 Group provided the paramilitary training. The company said the training was defensive in nature and intended to teach how to better protect Saudi leaders, including “safe marksmanship” and “countering an attack,” The Times reported.

“Paramilitary Training.” The US Department of Justice is trying to stop domestic terrorism and we have schools to train people in foreign lands in domestic terrorism? One would think after the 9-11 attacks that we would be very circumspect about training anyone, let alone the Saudis, on anything related to terrorism.

That said, we need to quit teaching “our friends” how to murder their political opponents.

    The Saudis need no lessons in murdering defenseless individuals, they publicly behead women accused of witchcraft. This is bad, but the Saudis are even worse than American right wingers.

    Just a thought … if you may imagine… What if nine-eleven op was not bin Laden and nineteen patsy Saudis (indeed, scarce evidence of it appeared but massive insistent media saturation “sh!t it then, and sh!ts it now, in the skulls of programmable meatbags,” h/t driftglass), and instead — if you may, n.-e. o. was coordinated in and covered up by Cheney’s DoD excusing them to release their krackens for (patsy) Arab annihilation … as shown in fullest evidences and continuing today? Test your n.-e. o. knowledge: how many WTC skyscrapers dropped in a cloud of pulverized dust that day? Answer: you can look it up if you don’t immediately know. (However, you can’t find the answer printed in the Official Govt Report.)

    Outrageous to think Bush/Cheney could mass murder American civilians in a sick sociopathic powerlust ! Bolstered by total massmedia encouragement. (Well, not ‘total,’ exactly; some doubters and deriders had to have their media career clipped {cough}Bill Moyers {cough} but THEN it was total.)

    To me it seems nearly peckish to argle-bargle about School of Benning Georgia mercenaries and their gruesome day’s work, in the context of hundreds of thousands of souls murdered and millions suffering, Cuba to Chile, decades along by the direct actions and active directions of the same ‘school’ and unlawful military mercenaries. And THAT only in the Americas, whereas beyond it has been tens of millions of humankind murdered at the casual request of USA Pentagon, DoD, militarized madness, MIC, CIA, nat’l insecurity, or whatever you perceive to be collecting your tax dollars.

    Yeah, Khashoggi. So what. Let’s disappear into federal custody many of the Jan 6 traitors and so begin to turn the tide toward “establish Justice,” (h/t US Constitution).. Don’t even say whether they got capital punishment or life away — merely disappear the convicted.
