One Jamal Khashoggi, Saudi Arabian subject, Islamist, either current or past member of Muslim Brotherhood, and least an employee of the Washington Post; has apparently been murdered in the Saudi Arabian embassy in Pakistan.  No man should be murdered.  That said, I see no reason to view the late Khashoggi any different than any other dead Muslim.  Khashoggi was not an American, not killed in our jurisdiction, and aside from being employed by an erstwhile US entity, the WaPo, had no connection to this country.  In short, Khashoggi’s death, while regrettable, is simply not our problem.  So why all the tears, from Emily Rauhala, Anton Troianovski, WaPo, via Chicago Tribune:

For nearly three weeks, the world has watched President Donald Trump downplay the disappearance and apparent slaying of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and waited for the most powerful man in the world to act. They are waiting still.

Trump’s inconsistent and cautious remarks about the case have renewed questions about U.S. credibility and complicated the global response, emboldening adversaries such as Russia and China and discouraging a robust response from traditional allies, according to analysts and former U.S. officials.

Sadly for the WaPo, Hell is a rather large place and there is no special place for those who kill their employees.
