Washington Post More or Less Confirms That Jamal Khashoggi Was a Paid Qatari Intelligence/Propaganda Asset

I can see how American "journalists" would regard this as the normal state of affairs and not really that different from a plain ol' "journalist."

Many journalists in the US are paid by Fusion GPS to plant Fusion stories, which in turn were funded by interested parties including foreign governments.

Quotes from the Washington Post below, with commentary added by streiff from RedState.

Perhaps most problematic for Khashoggi were his connections to an organization funded by Saudi Arabiaís regional nemesis, Qatar. Text messages between Khashoggi and an executive at Qatar Foundation International show that the executive, Maggie Mitchell Salem, at times shaped the columns he submitted to The Washington Post, proposing topics, drafting material and prodding him to take a harder line against the Saudi government. Khashoggi also appears to have relied on a researcher and translator affiliated with the organization, which promotes Arabic-language education in the United States.

...

Khashoggi was never a staff employee of the Post, and he was paid about $500 per piece for the 20 columns he wrote over the course of the year. He lived in an apartment near Tysons Corner in Fairfax County that he had purchased while working at the Saudi Embassy a decade earlier. [Note: how did he live in the DC Metro area for about $10K/year?]


Khashoggi also appears to have accepted significant help with his columns. Salem, the executive at the Qatar foundation, reviewed his work in advance and in some instances appears to have proposed language, according to a voluminous collection of messages obtained by The Post. [Journalists accepting "significant help" from government operatives in writing stories is a fact of how journalism is conducted in the Middle East, the Post eliding over this speaks volumes.]

In early August, Salem prodded Khashoggi to write about Saudi Arabia's alliances "from DC to Jerusalem to rising right wing parties across Europe...bringing an end to the liberal world order that challenges their abuses at home."

Khashoggi expressed misgivings about such a strident tone, then asked, "So do you have time to write it?"

So in other words, Khashoggi was largely just a frontman for anti-Saudi propaganda written by an operative of the Saudi's chief Arab rival, Qatar.

"I'll try," she replied, although she went on to urge him to "try a draft" himself incorporating sentences that she had sent him by text. A column reflecting their discussion appeared in The Post on Aug. 7. Khashoggi appears to have used some of Salem's suggestions, though it largely tracks ideas that he expressed in their exchange over the encrypted app WhatsApp.

Other texts in the 200-page trove indicate that Salemís organization paid a researcher who did work for Khashoggi. The foundation is an offshoot of a larger Qatar-based organization. Khashoggi also relied on a translator who worked at times for the Qatari embassy and the foundation.

...

On Oct. 3, one day after Khashoggi's death, while his fate remained uncertain, his researcher contacted The Post to say that he had a draft of a column that Khashoggi had begun writing before his disappearance. It was published two weeks later. [The likelihood that Khashoggi's last column was ghostwritten to take advantage of his disappearance by making him appear to be an Arabian Thomas Jefferson approaches certainty.]

streiff quotes Dave Reaboi of the Strategic Studies Group noting that it doesn't make sense for the Washington Post to reveal that the man they've been painting as a patriotic martyr for two months was in fact a shabby operative working for a government hostile to his native country except if the Washington Post knew that there were rumors about these texts and possible payments to Khashoggi and they sought to get ahead of a story they knew could no longer be suppressed.

I have to disagree. Natalie Holloway was an American murdered in a little shitstain Carribean island that lived on tourism and was covered up by the locals. Frankly, no AMerican should have ever gone vacationing at that place again.

Casey ANthony was a case of a psychopath mother and bungled investigation, which is a story that always interests people.

Kashoggi is totally different. No comparison, at all. Being that he was an AL Quaeda butt-boy made it all the more ridiculous. Being that the douchebags in Turkey were making it a story made it all even more pathetic and ridiculous.

104 I never use the term "journalist." It implies a higher function than they fulfill. They're "reporters," which evokes an image of down-at-heel gumshoes pounding away on typewriters.

It's also the reason why I refer to "escorts" as "whores."

In fact, "whores" fits for "journalists" as well.
Posted by: Deplorable Jay Guevara at December 26, 2018 03:36 PM (HOIfB)

Eh, back in the day, "reporter" was a trade, and a fairly honest one, even. They weren't college indoctrinated; they apprenticed on the job, and it was a trade, not a "profession". And they actually reported the facts as best as they could learn them, and did not offer their own opinions. That was reserved to the editors and columnists (many of whom belonged to the Fifth Column).

I have to say that I like the term "journalists" more than "reporters". "Reporters" makes them sound like objective conveyers of factual events. "Journalists" gives more the impression that they should start every story (and I say "story" instead of "article") with "Dear Diary ...".

Of course, "Propagandists" is still the most accurate term of all.

Yeah, but that's assuming the entire track is resting on conformable ground, that can give a little to meet the track.

Run that track up on a cement block in a pile of rubble on hard dry ground, and the entire weight of one side of the dozer will be impressed upon a few square inches of cement block, most likely crushing it.

Was wondering when he would do one of these trips. Timing on this was excellent (I mean from security standpoint, which is the main one). After Dubya pioneered the practice, there has been some focus by interested parties (including bad ones) on gaming out/predicting such visits. This was a twist, going just after the "peak" of the holiday.

It's about 6200 miles from DC to Baghdad, and if Air Force One flies the standard cruise speed of 555 mph, then it would take the a little over 11 hours to arrive. Round up to 13 to account for required security measures for the trip, refueling, etc.

According to Fox News, they left last night.

265 I stipulated/granted that K. was a malign actor operating for furrin'/hostile interests in 8 nanoseconds of it being alleged by Reaboi and Co. Happily.


But only reaction to the entire kerfuffle remains as it was at the outset: dumb, sloppy way for the Kingdom to handle a problem. That's all. Plus, hard to imagine K. was that big a deal. They've had much stronger and more interesting enemies for decades. Never any need seen for action like this against them.


Maybe it was underlings doing the effing up. Dunno. Have not been able to force myself to follow the whole thing in that detail. Meh.

If I'm doing this right, and we assume he just magically transports from the White House, into AF1, sitting on the end of the runway waiting for take off, and he pulled the same shit when he landed and beamed out of AF1 and right into the place he took the photos, AND he wasn't a bastard that made people get out of their racks for the photo op.

Plus Iraq is 8 hours ahead of EST. So we are talking effectively 21 hours.

So in order for Trump to be in Iraq late on Christmas night Iraq time, they would need to leave at like 3 a.m. EST.

Thus all the people saying Trump was shamed into going are basing that on what, exactly?

Well, as you know, she had the most perfect unenhanced breasts imaginable: a firmness and softness that are rarely combined in adult women. Taut, sleek skin without visible blemishes and a well-trimmed but not shaved pubic mound crowning an truly elegant and proportional labia. Her mouth had an adorable overbite, giving her pert lips a kissable quality, though her mouth was rarely allowed to partake in something as soft and romantic as a kiss, even in her frequent, passionate lesbian scenes.

There are no good guys, just bad and less bad.

Countries like Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Egypt are in the less bad category because they're either moderate or moderating, and slowly entering the 20th Century.

Iran, Pakistan, Turkey, and their pawns (like Qatar) are worse because they're going further into Jihadi flavored insanity and each wants to be the next Caliphate.

325 Some twenty years ago, my brother in law, who worked for a DC PR firm, went on a weekend trip to the beach with several other men in the PR firm to draft a letter/op ed they were going to submit to TIME Magazine, purporting to be from (and signed by) an Arab-American businessman with business interests in the Magic Kingdom (KSA). He was tickled with this, and told me that the public figures who allegedly are putting articles and op eds into major "news" outlets never write their own stuff, it's all done by the PR agencies working for behind the scenes interests.
So this has been going on for decades.
Bottom line: Almost all the "public news and information" we see is BULLSHIT.
