But Before Khashoggi

Closing Thought–28Dec18

By now the whole world knows the name Khashoggi…the Saudi journalist that was assassinated and dismembered by the Saudi prince…the notorious MbS…..but before that incident the Saudis struck this time on American soil, Oregon…..

It’s another controversial case involving Saudi Arabia and the US. This time, as the Oregonian reports, federal authorities think the kingdom helped a 21-year-old man awaiting trial in a fatal hit-and-run flee the United States and return home. In August 2016, police in Portland say Abdulrahman Sameer Noorah illegally swerved around traffic that had stopped to allow 15-year-old Fallon Smart to cross a boulevard. Noorah, who had been in the US studying at a local community college, hit the teen while going at least 55mph, then fled the scene before returning later, authorities say. The Saudi consulate put up $100,000 so Noorah could be released on bail in his first-degree manslaughter case. And two weeks before his trial, Noorah disappeared with help from a mysterious black SUV.

The vehicle picked up Noorah at his home and drove him to the parking lot of a nearby business, where he cut off the tracking monitor on his ankle and discarded it. He hasn’t been seen since, though the Saudi government informed the US last year that he is back in Saudi Arabia. The best guess by federal authorities is that the Saudis arranged the SUV, got Noorah a fake passport, and got him out of the country on a private carrier. “We’re doing everything we can to get him back,” a US marshal official tells the newspaper. A lawyer for victim Fallon’s family asks, “Why isn’t the Saudi government respecting our justice system?” Click for the full story, which notes that this isn’t the first time that Saudi Arabia bailed Noorah out of legal trouble in the US.

Apparently the Saudis do not have to play by the same rules as the rest of the world.

These bastards are like the Israelis…they think they can get away with murder (pun intended)….and the rest of the world owes them something…..

Look under the international rocks….there you will find the slime and slugs of the world…..the Saudis are NOT our friends or ally.

  1. Playing by the ‘rules’ has never achieved anything. The US played by the rules in 1941, and got Pearl Harbour. I suggest they demand the extradition of the man responsible for the driving death, and withdraw ‘cooperation’ until he is returned to face justice.
    Yeah, like that’s ever going to happen. I know. Oil. Profits. Arms Sales. (It’s a long list…)
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I was surprised that I didn’t see anything on your site about Richard Overton, at 112 years old he was our oldest surviving WWII veteran.

    1. I regret that I have not been doing much reading lately….this one was a draft that I was holding….he will get a place tomorrow…..thanx for the heads up….chuq
