"I Know How To Cut Well" - Erdogan Reveals More Audio Of Khashoggi Killing

•, By Tyler Durden

"The Saudi intelligence chief is heard saying in the recording that it is a disaster because this man [Khashoggi] has been drugged. 'I know how to cut well,' the other man responds. Why? Because he is a forensic expert. He is a senior military guy. Everything is there in the recordings," Erdogan said at the Jerusalem Platform event on Dec. 14, according to a translation by Turkey's Hurriyet Daily News.

Erdogan's commentary provides further context to an earlier CNN report released Monday, which quoted Khashoggi's final words as revealed in audio Turkish intelligence had captured by bugging the Saudi consulate. CNN's source relayed that the transcript of the recording reveals that the Saudi journalist and Washington Post columnist said "I can't breathe" followed by screams and "saw" and "cutting" sounds.

According to CNN

During the course of the gruesome scene, the source describes Khashoggi struggling against a group of people determined to kill him.

"I can't breathe," Khashoggi says.

"I can't breathe."

"I can't breathe."

The transcript notes the sounds of Khashoggi's body being dismembered by a saw, as the alleged perpetrators are advised to listen to music to block out the sound.
