Well, it seems we all misjudged Mister Bone Saw....not!
(The Hill)Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said in an interview with The Atlantic that it was "obvious" he had not ordered the 2018 killing of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey, contrary to the conclusion of Western governments, implying that the slain journalist was not important enough to kill.
"I never read a Khashoggi article in my life," Mohammed said, adding that if he were to send executioners, he would choose a more valuable target — and better assassins.
"If that's the way we did things, Khashoggi would not even be among the top 1,000 people on the list. If you're going to go for another operation like that, for another person, it's got to be professional and it's got to be one of the top 1,000," he said.
A U.S. intelligence report released last year concluded that the crown prince had personally approved the killing and dismemberment of the U.S.-based journalist, who was critical of the Riyadh government, at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul
