Alex: "Correct."

At least we know why WaPO led the moral panic over his murder.

He was a media writer who was a deep state shill.

In other words, one of their own.

He was accused of killing a Portland teen. Feds believe the Saudis helped him escape

Update:
Gone: More cases emerge of Saudi students vanishing while facing Oregon charges

The Oregonian/OregonLive has found criminal cases involving at least five Saudi nationals who vanished before they faced trial or completed their jail sentence in Oregon. They include two accused rapists, a pair of suspected hit-and-run drivers and one man with child porn on his computer.

The five cases share many similarities:
  • - All were young men studying at a public college or university in Oregon with assistance from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia at the time of their arrest.
  • - In four of the cases, the Saudi government stepped in to help, posting large sums of money for bail and possibly underwriting legal fees.
  • - Three surrendered their passports.
  • - All disappeared while facing charges or jail time.
  • - The same Oregon defense attorney, Ginger Mooney, was hired to represent the four most recent suspects.
  • - Little is known of the whereabouts of the five, though some have been traced back to Saudi Arabia.
The new details add to mounting scrutiny of Saudi Arabia’s conduct abroad after the kingdom’s role in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey last fall.
