What a coinky dink!

A suspect in the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and member of the Saudi Royal Air Force has died in a car accident in Riyadh, the Turkish pro-government Yeni Şafak newspaper said on Thursday.
It did not say what role Mashal Saad al-Bostani may have played in the alleged killing of Khashoggi, nor did it report any details about the traffic crash. Bostani was one of the 15 suspects Turkey identified who landed in Istanbul on Oct. 2, the day that Khashoggi disappeared, and left the same day after visiting the Saudi consulate.
Turkish police this week searched the consulate and consul for many hours. Officials leaking to the press have said recordings confirm the suspects killed Khashoggi and dismembered his body.
Yeni Şafak said Mohammad al-Otaibi, Saudi Arabia’s Istanbul consul, was recorded as telling members of the 15-man team “do it somewhere else outside or I will be in trouble”.
“Shut up if you want to live when you are back in Saudi Arabia,” one of the men replied.
Otaibi’s house was searched by police on Wednesday and Thursday. He returned to Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.
You know I always wondered when I watched programs like the Sopranos if the people helping with the crimes realized that they probably knew too much to be allowed to live?
I mean how could it not have occurred to this guy while they were bagging Khashoggi’s body parts that the people he was working with would probably have no problem doing the same to him?
If I were in any way connected to this murder I would be running to the American authorities and start spilling my guts, before one of Mohammad Bin Salman’s thugs did it for me.
That is of course if people can still trust the American justice department to protect them anymore.
Which is becoming more and more of a concern every day.
