Not a ‘mistake,’ Greg

“Take ownership no matter what it is. Look, we’ve all made mistakes, and you just want to learn from those mistakes and how you can correct them going forward.”

So said Greg Norman, the one-time top-flight pro golfer from Australia. What was the “mistake” to which Norman refers?

Oh, just the gruesome murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who in October 2018 was sliced up and dismembered by Saudi killers in the Saudi consulate building in Istanbul.

I guess I should mention that Norman is now taking part in an international golf league run by — get ready for it — Saudi Arabia interests.

Thus, when Greg Norman calls a ghastly crime against a journalist a “mistake,” he only demonstrates his (a) ignorance of historical fact and (b) his own conflict of interest in even commenting on the dastardly act.
