Crappy Ed Sheeran remake of "We Didn't Start The Fire?" Sure. Historical turning point? Not a chance. 15 of 19 September 11 hijackers were Saudi and it didn't alter US foreign policy towards Saudi Arabia in the slightest. Jamal Khashoggi was a Saudi princeling whose entire career was in Saudi Arabia, other than a handful of columns for the Washington Post. Everyone involved knew he could be murdered with impunity, which is why the Turks have audio of it. Otherwise he'd be just another disappeared journalist.
