While Saudi authorities have admitted that the journalist's murder was premeditated, the body has yet to be found.

The squad leader, Salah Muhammad al-Tubaigy, the head of forensic evidence in the Saudi general security department, started cutting Khashoggi's body while he was alive.

Provided with the facts that Haspel has reported, which are now in the hands of President Donald Trump, and with the Congress' demand to know the dubious details of the consulate's crime, further pressure is placed on the US president to stop keeping up with the Saudi prince, the liar who confesses to his crime in a piecemeal manner. Who gave the order to kill this kind soul?

Turkey is trying to have 18 suspects detained in Saudi Arabia extradited so they can be tried in a Turkish court. We also know that those individuals came to carry out their orders: "Kill Khashoggi and leave".

"Then, of course, the question comes when you go to something like this - are you helping by going or by not going are you pushing them away and making society poorer and weaker and less open by shutting them out?"

Answering these questions, one month after Khashoggi's death, is "crucial" to the subsequent investigation and to the well-being of the journalist's family, the president argued. But now we see that they didn't just cut it up, they dissolved the body.

"At the very least, he deserves a proper burial in line with Islamic customs".

"We value our strategic relationship with the United States and hope to sustain it".

Netanyahu said at a news conference that Iran is a bigger threat than Saudi Arabia and those who want to punish the Middle East kingdom need to bear that in mind. Therefore, I have no reason to believe that his murder reflected Saudi Arabia's official policy.
