Over the past week, rumors have been flying about a Washington Post reporter who traveled to Turkey and never returned.

Reporter, Jamal Khashoggi, age 60, disappeared after entering a Saudi diplomatic consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 2nd. Khashoggi’s fiance had told Turkish officials that Khashoggi had not come back as she was waiting for him outside.

King Salman of Saudi Arabia denied all knowledge regarding the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi when asked by President Trump. Because of this blunt denial, President Trump is sending his secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, “immediately” to see the king.

Jamal Khashoggi had a long history of criticizing the Saudi Arabian government on Twitter, which later he said he was “banned” by the Saudi Arabian government. He eventually left Saudi Arabia shortly afterwards, and came to America. He apparently went to the consulate being lured by the promise of paperwork he needed to get married.

Turkish officials say that the 15 men who arrived the same day and place as Khashoggi did, could be involved with this case. Especially since some of the men have ties with the government. The Turks further claim to have an audio recording of Khashoggi being either tortured or killed.

Tension has risen between Turkey and Saudi Arabia because of this incident. Turkish police men are saying that the Saudi Arabian side has not been too cooperative in this investigation ever since the approval for them to work together by both sides.

Whether or not Khashoggi was ordered to die by anyone in the Saudi royal family, but many speculate that this is a murder orchestrated by the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman.  As of press time, the the Saudis are now saying Khashoggi died in a “fist fight” inside the consulate, a story many international observers are finding hard to believe.

President Trump has been very blunt about the idea that the Saudis are buying billions of dollars of weapons from US suppliers, and he wants to keep that deal alive. Trump also said that this could be the doing of “Rogue Killers” but no evidence has surfaced regarding that.

Saudi Arabia also sits on some of the world’s largest oil reserves, control of which they can use to get their way in international problems.
