[coikqgwo] Osama bin Laden on the assassination of Jamal Khashoggi

if Osama bin Laden (assassinated 2011) had hypothetically still been alive, what would have been his reaction to the 2018 assassination of Jamal Khashoggi by the Saudi royal family?

bin Laden had long decried the Saudi royal family as evil, so his reaction might have been, "I told you so."

or maybe not: bin Laden's quarrel with the Saudi royal family was over them collaborating with the West, being too liberal, whereas Khashoggi's complaint was over them not being liberal enough on issues such as women's rights.

did al Qaeda or its sympathizers (if any still alive) issue any statements about Khashoggi's death?

Khashoggi, as a journalist, had interviewed bin Laden a long time ago.
