Everything's About the Saudis These Days
Is there something else we're not supposed to be noticing?
I recently wrote about "Weasel words" and now I have to do it again! When you see them, you need to know you're being conned.
CBC: A Quebecer spoke out against the Saudis - then learned he had spyware on his iPhone
About the only things said in definite terms were these:
The report goes on to say that "Public Safety has yet to respond to a request for comment", but it doesn't actually say that Public Safety was ever contacted. We're supposed to assume that.
The Director of the research unit, Ron Diebert, is an absolute expert at weasel words:
You can read the detailed report of the research here.
Okay, note that all that took place back in June, yet nothing was said about it until October 1. And then it isn't until October 14 that we are told that Omar had been in phone contact with the missing-and-presumed-dead "journalist" Jamal Khashoggi.
What if Khashoggi was a Saudi plant and not just an innocent dissident (like Omar) writing for the fake news experts at the Washington Post. (Read all about him at PennyforyourThoughts)
What would that make Omar Abdulaziz?
What this latest report does is boost the story that Khashoggi was abducted by the Saudis. And it certainly tweaks Omar's own importance. (Oh, gawd, is he going to become another Mubin Sheikh?)
CBC: Quebec dissident believes Saudis used spyware to eavesdrop on his chats with Jamal Khashoggi
Well, the RCMP are investigating, so that's okay then. They can't find over a thousand missing Native women, but maybe there are some things they're good at. Especially if they themselves are the ones who infected Omar's phone. It's their job to be watching out for potential terrorists, isn't it?
Keep in mind that an Israeli firm was said by the researchers to be the innovator of the spyware they say may have infected Omar's phone. It's said to be very expensive, and therefore only accessible to the well-funded, but the RCMP and CSIS have proved in the past to have lots of money to throw at infiltrators.
Omar Abdulaziz is terribly brave about the problems he says he's caused his mother and brothers, as well as what he believes is Khashoggi's predicament, all due to Omar's own activities.
As he says, they wouldn't harm him on Canadian soil and they couldn't get Khashoggi until he went to Turkey. It's like the old saying, "I'm allright Jack; pull in the ladder"
It's not easy to keep all of the current international intrigues straight, but the biggest mystery seems to me to be why Omar ordered all that protein powder. And we haven't been told if he ever received it. That's going to keep me awake tonight, for sure.
I've read that protein powder is not good for you, but I never knew until now just how dangerous it could be.
