The CIA believes the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul would have been done a lot better had they carried out the hit.

“What is this? Amateur hour?” asks one CIA agent who wishes to remain anonymous.

The CIA’s finding, first reported by the Washington Post, was the most definitive US assessment to date outlining how they are more efficient at assassinations.

“They should have just given us a call,” says the CIA agent.

“We’ve had success over many decades including JFK, RFK, Martin Luther King, Saddam Hussein, and the lesser known Salvador Allende, to name a few.”

The CIA is confident they can add Julian Assange to their list of achievements.
