        Aljaz tv did an Inside Story half hour discussion on this even when it first happened. They had a Saudi supporter commenter on. He was bloody hilarious. Among his gems were: “He didn’t disappear inside the Embassy.” “He was kidnapped from outside the Embassy”. “It was the Muslim Brotherhood”. “It was the Iranians.” He just had this whole rotating list of who did it – everyone was gobsmacked & eventually they just accepted he was going to interrupt with this sort of absurd nonsense all through the programme.

        Claiming it was rogue elements or an “interview that went wrong” or “he pulled a gun” or something have always been on the cards as the kind of thing that will eventually be accepted. MBS obviously ordered this, but it’s very unlikely MBS will have to step down or be held accountable. Even if he does, he’ll either be reinstated after a respectable period of time, or effectively control a puppet replacement, in all likelihood.

          ‘Gaddafi has kept a cadre of about 30 women, known as his Amazonian guard, close by his side since the early 1970s. At times, the women took bullets for Gaddafi — one woman died and two were injured when the Libyan leader was attacked in 1998.

          The strongman asked his female bodyguards not only for their protection but also for oaths of virginity, and that they be dressed in camouflage, rouge,nail polish, coiffed hair, and heavy mascara.’

    Avenatti delivers…again!

    “No amount of spin or commentary by Stormy Daniels or her lawyer, Mr. Avenatti, can truthfully characterize today’s ruling in any way other than total victory for President Trump and total defeat for Stormy Daniels,” Trump’s lawyer, Charles Harder, said in a statement.

      “Ms Nassef’s severe lack of memory and abrasive responses led to the lawyer for Pitcher Partners, Ben Gibson, to ask if she had a medical condition or had been influenced by other witnesses to not give full evidence.

      “Do you have any medical reason why your recollection of recent events is poor,” Mr Gibson asked.”

      Reminiscent of another lawyer’s memory – currently sitting in parliament over here.
