According to media reports, Hatice Cengiz, the controversial fiancée of Jamal Khashoggi asked Istanbul’s Çağlayan Court to accept into proceedings the recently published declassified US intelligence report.
The court rejected the request by Khashoggi’s fiancée Hatice Cengiz to accept into evidence in these proceedings the recently published declassified US intelligence report, which held Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman responsible for approving Khashoggi’s murder. The judge stated that the report “would bring nothing to the trial,” and told Cengiz she would have to take the request directly to Istanbul’s Prosecutor General.
From the above fact, anyone can easily understand – the judges in Istanbul’s Çağlayan Court did not pay any value to the report because it contains no ingredient at all.
While Cengiz and those anti-Saudi propagandists are repeatedly bringing the name of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman as being “responsible for approving Khashoggi’s murder”, a careful evaluation of the report would clearly prove – the contents of the US intelligence report is just another example of their tradition of fooling people with lies and manufactured stories.
In the so-called report titled ‘Assessing the Saudi Government’s Role in the killing of Jamal Khashoggi (dated February 11, 2021), the US intelligence has mentioned: We assess that Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman approved an operation in Istanbul, Turkey to capture or kill Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
How does the American intelligence come to such wild and baseless assessment?
To find the reply, one may look into the report again, where it states: We base this assessment on the Crown Prince’s control of decisionmaking in the Kingdom, the direct involvement of a key adviser and member of Mohammed bin Salman’s protective detail in the operation, and the Crown Prince’s support for using violent measures to silence dissidents abroad, including Khashoggi.
Since 2017, the Crown Prince has had absolute control of the Kingdom’s security and intelligence organizations, making it highly unlikely that Saudi officials would have carried out an operation of this nature without the Crown Prince’s authorization.
The US intelligence report also said: The Crown Prince viewed Khashoggi as a threat to the Kingdom and broadly supported using violent measures if necessary to silence him. Although Saudi officials had pre-planned an unspecified operation against Khashoggi we do not know how far in advance Saudi officials decided to harm him”.
A funny fairytale of the American intelligence
In the so-called intelligence report, while the American intelligence, based on their assumption or wild and baseless speculations, made frantic bids of falsely tagging the Saudi Crown Prince with the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, then in the same report they said – they (the US intelligence) were not sure there had at all been any decision of killing Khashoggi.
Anyone having elementary knowledge of intelligence report of such a sensitive case, they will laugh at this ridiculous and funny story of the American spies, which lacks minimum ingredient of credibility. Rather, this report resembles many of CIA’s baseless stories, including that of Saddam Hussain’s possessing Weapon of Mass Destruction.
Recently American soldiers deployed in the White House were served half-cooked and rotten food, which resulted in food-poisoning of dozens. How about accusing President Joe Biden as the mastermind of this incident as the White House is under full control of him? Shall anyone accept any “intelligence report” on the case of food-poisoning, if Joe Biden is made responsible for this incident?
Hopefully, American intelligence community will have some shame for their culture of spreading lies in the form of report.
Cruel conspiracy against Saudi Arabia
According to media report, Paris-based Reporters Sans Frontiers have filed a criminal case in Germany against Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and four other high-ranking Saudi officials for “crime against humanity committed in their widespread and systematic persecution of journalists – including Jamal Khashoggi, and 34 other journalists who have been arbitrarily detained”.
The above-mentioned case lodged by RSF is also suspicious, since this is an unanticipated and sudden attack against Saudi Arabia committed at a moment, when journalists are being persecuted and jailed in Iran, and Turkey has already earned the title of “champion jailer of journalists”.
