Saudi Arabia’s Khashoggi Announcement Met With Serious Skepticism: ‘We Weren’t Born Yesterday’


Saudi Arabia has confirmed that Jamal Khashoggi was killed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, but the official story is that he was killed after an altercation of some kind, and that they will be conducting an investigation. But there are still serious lingering questions, and pretty much all of media Twitter is extremely skeptical of this announcement.

On CNN, analysts were similarly skeptical. Obama administration national security official Samantha Vinograd said the only logical response is “we weren’t born yesterday,” while former director of communication for U.S. national intelligence Shawn Turner called it “laughable.” You can watch above, via CNN.
