Speaking of Khashoggi...

...since Utah is rather isolated, it may have lost track of him after he made such hash of the Triad Center and it tanked in the bankruptcy court. Of course his arms dealing and his ties to Jim Critchfield, Kermit Roosevelt, and Bebe Rebozo are old news, and everyone ought to know that he was one of the major money shovelers for the Iran-Contra scam, but he was also arrested for fraud but aquitted in 1992 (Wonder if that result had anything to do with his long-standing status as a CIA asset. Think I need a foil beanie? Look up Barrick Gold some time.). It also appears his financial institutions provided cash for 9/11, mainly through Armenian connections. Other than that, he's kept a low profile lately. Oh, and his nephew Dodi Al-Fayed was the boyfriend who was killed with Princess Di.

Funny thing about real estate investment. You never know whom you'll run into, especially as the air becomes more rarefied.
