(Yeah, he looked just like the kind of guy who would duke it out with 15 
members of Saudi military intelligence. Can't wait for the monarchy to 
provide the corpse. They'll need someone to sew it together first.)

Jamal Khashoggi Is Dead, Saudi Arabia Says
By Ben Hubbard

BEIRUT, Lebanon — Saudi Arabia has announced that Jamal Khashoggi, the 
dissident Saudi journalist who disappeared in Istanbul more than two 
weeks ago, is dead.

Eighteen Saudis have been arrested and are being investigated in 
connection with the case, according to a statement released through 
state-run media early Saturday. None were identified.

In the statement, the kingdom’s public prosecutor said that an 
investigation had found that an argument broke out between Mr. Khashoggi 
and men who met him inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2, 
leading to “a fistfight that led to his death.”

Turkish officials have said that Mr. Khashoggi was killed and 
dismembered inside the consulate by a team of 15 Saudi agents who had 
flown in to meet him. His body has yet to be found.
