Stephen Lendman - Did the Saudis Kidnap and Murder Journalist Jamal Khashoggi?

But US/  Saudi relations won't change, says Stephen Lendman. 
On October 2, prominent Saudi journalist/critic Khashoggi disappeared after entering the kingdom’s Instanbul, Turkey consulate, needing documents for his upcoming wedding, scheduled for this week.
He hasn’t been seen or heard from since, likely victimized by foul play. Turkish officials believe he was murdered by a Saudi hit squad sent from the kingdom to eliminate him.
Last year, Khashoggi fled Saudi Arabia over harsh crackdowns on regime critics. Friction between him and its despotic ruling family surfaced after saying the kingdom should be “nervous about a Trump presidency.”
He opposed Saudi aggression in Yemen, its unacceptable policies toward Qatar, and harshness against critics.
