Butchered columnist Khashoggi gave a last interview to Newsweek’s Rula Jebreal, published in Newsweek reporting his thinking on the reforms carried out by Crown prince Mohammad Bin Salman, and his belief that the only American political leader to put pressure on Saudi Arabia was Bernie Sanders.
“I have long been troubled by the nature of the relationship between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia,” Sanders said in a video posted on Twitter. "It is time for us to thoroughly re-evaluate that relationship. Saudi Arabia has always been a despotic dictatorship in which dissent is not tolerated, in which women are considered third-class citizens and which has spent the last several decades exporting an extreme form of Islam."
The New York Times reported that Khashoggi had been dismembered at the consulate, with one of Saudi Arabia’s best-known forensic experts leading the task to get rid of the body.
