World Advanced, KSA Withdrew

Finally international pressures left no choice for Saudi Arabia but to confess that Jamal Khashoggi had been murdered inside Saudi consulate in Istanbul. We say “confession” because Saudi officials used to insist Jamal had left the consulate on Oct. 2 safely, the day of his murder. But they showed no evidence, neither his waiting fiancé saw him outside of the consulate.
Turkey gradually and wisely leaked out some information about the Saudi death squad. It compelled Saudi officials to confess the murder has taken place inside the consulate in Istanbul. However the confession was not clear and the responsibility was put on the shoulders of some wayward officials.
After denying media reports about the murder of Khashoggi, the KSA withdrew from its official account. Some officials were either dismissed or arrested to calm down international anger. Despite it, the incident is not lesser than a scandal.
Surprisingly some people expected the US would decrease its bilateral ties level with the KSA on Khashoggi scandal “punishing” Saudi Arabia in a human rights case. While George W. Bush, relating to the party Donald Trump, targeted Al-Jazeera headquarter in Kabul and Baghdad after the US invasions on Afghanistan and Iraq. Even according to a report Bush was speculating about a U.S. bombing raid on Al Jazeera’s world headquarters in the Qatari capital Doha and other locations.
It is clear “human rights” and “freedom of speech” are only a lever in the hands of the West to extend its hegemony.
So the countries which hate freedom of speech should remove their opponents more wisely and show more veracity. At least they should not make diplomatic places “altars”.
