Turkish police have searched the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul amid the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, who went missing after entering the consulate. Riyadh insists the journalist left the consulate the same day. Washington has threatened consequences if a Saudi link is proven, but isn't willing to risk the consequences, some observers say.
Speaking to Sputnik Persian, Mojtaba Jalalzadeh, an Iranian US watcher and international relations expert at the Islamic Azad University in Tehran, suggested that it was pretty obvious how Washington's bluster over the Khashoggi case would end.
