It has been nearly six months since Jamal Khashoggi was brutally murdered inside Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, but the aftershocks continue.Khashoggi was our colleague, and my friend for 15 years.r Some members of the Saudi strike team that was sent to Istanbul received training in the United States, according to U.S. and Saudi sources. The CIA has cautioned other government agencies that some of this special-operations training might have been conducted by Tier 1 Group, an Arkansas-based company, under a State Department license.A source said Morell withdrew within days of Khashoggi's murder because of his concern about the direction Saudi Arabia was heading.The company wouldn't confirm or deny whether any of the 17 perpetrators of the Khashoggi killing who were sanctioned by the Treasury Department had been trained under the Tier 1 contract.The transcript, as described by the Saudi source, is chilling.The Saudi source says there is a note in the transcript indicating that Khashoggi was given an injection.
