ANKARA, Turkey (AP) ó In his final words, slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi urged his killers not to cover his mouth because he suffered from asthma and could suffocate, according to Turkey's Sabah newspaper.

Sabah newspaper, which is close to Turkey's government, published new details of a recording of Khashoggi's conversation with members of a Saudi hit squad sent to kill him. The paper says the recording of Khashoggi's grisly Oct. 2, 2018 killing and reported dismemberment at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul was obtained by Turkey's intelligence agency.

According to the transcript, Maher Mutreb, a member of the Saudi hit squad, tells Khashoggi that he has to be taken back to Riyadh because of an Interpol order against him. The journalist objects, saying there is no legal case against him and that his fiancee is waiting for him outside.

Mutreb and another man are also heard trying to force Khashoggi to send his son a message telling him not to worry if he doesn't hear from him, according to the paper. Khashoggi resists saying: "I will write nothing."

1. That the trumpian government did NOTHING when this murder

of an AMERICAN CITIZEN occurred is something that EVERY democratic candidate should bring up and talk about. The eventual nominee MUST reveal to the American people what they would do in a case like this.

To me, this is one of the ugliest stains on the US. And I believe that trumpie knew this was going to happen.

2. Khashoggi wasn't a US citizen.

Not that the crime was any less egregious for that, of course.

5. Then try this one on . . .

According to the U S Department of State, Jamal Khashoggi had applied for, was awaiting (He had been informed that his application had been approved.) permanent citizenship status when he was murdered.

I'll take my facts from the State Department.

6. I see no evidence for that statement.

Can you provide a State Department release backing that up?

7. The same event was covered in an article posted a couple of hours earlier.

I didn't see it, am deleting this one.

Please check the earlier story, which had a different headline, at this link:
