"Years before the coup. Sod claims the young prince boasted tenaya that he could kill the sitting king, Abdullah, to clear the throne for his own father. And he told him I want to assassinate king Abdullah. I get a voice and drink from Russia. It's enough for me just to shake hand with him. And he will be done. He poison ring from Russia? That's what he said, whether he's just bragging or but he said that and we took it seriously. By we, sad means Saudi intelligence took it seriously. The alleged threat he says was handled within the royal family. So sad told us he watched the meeting. On a video recording. Does this video recording still exist? Yes. I know where it's now. I know there are two cups of that. I know where there are. Prince Muhammad is 36, and wields unlimited power on behalf of his ailing 85 year old father, king Salman. The prince is admired by some for allowing women to drive, permitting movie theaters, and disbanding the religious police who once assaulted couples for holding hands. There's two groups of people in Saudi Arabia. There are those who are very happy with Mohammed bin Salman, the 70% of the population that's under 30. He is not popular with The Old Guard with the royal family. Because he changed the system. But much of that change has been reckless. His war in Yemen has killed thousands of civilians in what the UN says may be war crimes. He invited Lebanon's leader to visit Saudi Arabia, took him hostage and forced him to resign. He detained hundreds of potential rivals until they signed over their wealth. Jailed women calling for human rights, and murdered Jamal Khashoggi. I expect to be killed one day because this guy will not rest until he sees me dead. But what does America owe sad Al jabr? We asked former CIA acting director and CBS News consultant Michael morel. Who worked closely with sod from 2010 to 2013. Is it too much to say that sod may have saved American lives? He absolutely. Doctor Saad absolutely saved American lives. He saved Saudi lives. Many of them, and he saved American lives. Can you name any of those cases? The one I can talk about is the so called printer cartridge plot. In 2010 Al-Qaeda hid bombs in two desktop printers. They were in the air as cargo headed to the U.S. on two planes. Perhaps intended to explode over American cities. But thanks to intelligence relayed by sod Al jabri, the bombs were intercepted during layovers. Are there any other examples of times that sod had saved American lives? There are? What are they? I can't talk about them because they're still classified..

Bottom line products that are returned don't follow the same path in which they were delivered. The reverse supply chain is much more complicated, depending on whether it's picked up from your home returned to a retail store. Or dropped off in a post office, FedEx or UPS location. Tony Shirota heads the Reverse Logistics association and says once picked up returned products usually can't go back to their original distribution centers. We're running out of warehouse space. In addition, Shirota says, processing returns takes many more hands than delivering products from the manufacturer. It's estimated that on the forward side Products or touch seven times before consumer owns it. On the reverse side products are touched 2 to 3 times that many times could be 14 to 21 touches if returned to a brick and mortar store. The product has to be examined to see if it could be re shelve door has to go elsewhere to be repaired or liquidated. If returned to a warehouse. There's a similar process there. There's so many touch points and that costs money, real money in the billions of dollars it is not sustainable time of 30%..

"Be human remains, but police have not confirmed any fatalities. Mayor John Cooper spoke at a press conference after surveying the damage. We're not going to rest until those responsible for this outrageous and cowardly attack are brought to justice. Jeremy shot says He and his wife were confused and terrified for awhile. But he is relatively glad that the explosion happened at 6 30 on Christmas morning if it were 10 P.m. on a Friday There would be hundreds of people dead. Authorities say there doesn't appear to be an additional threat. The FBI is now taking over the investigation. New genetic variant of the Corona virus is sweeping through England. At the same time, the country is seeing a huge surge in covert 19 cases and hospitalizations. A big question is whether the variant is causing this search is the new variant more dangerous As NPR's Michaleen Duke left reports, scientists are just starting to answer that question. Throughout the pandemic, Nick Davies has been watching the virus like a hawk. He's an epidemiologist at the London School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. He uses computer models to predict how covert 19 will spread. Last week, when health officials announced the rise of a new variant in the UK, Davies was skeptical that it was causing the surge because one possible explanation for the rise and hospitalizations could just be that we've just come out of lockdown in these regions, and maybe people have gone back toe, more normal movement and contact patterns. All viruses mutate. That's normal, the vast majority of time the mutations are harmless. You don't make the virus more dangerous. In a few days later, Devi saw a news presentation from South Africa. The virus is surging there to guess what scientists have also detected there, a new variant that looks similar to the one in England. May have been a little bit uncertain before whether this increase we've been seeing in the southeast of England was due to this new variant. But now I think it's a very strong possibility. And so Devi's went to work. He took the data of the New Varian and inserted it into computer models. He wanted to know why the variant was spreading so quickly. Models pointed in one direction. It's more contagious. That increased transmissibility is the easiest wave to explain what we're seeing. The model suggests the variant is about 50% more transmissible than previous versions of the Corona virus. Scientists don't yet know why it may infect cells more easily, and it may generate more copies of itself inside a person together. The research points to a sobering message, given all the biological and epidemiological evidence that has come together in the past few weeks. I think the picture is getting more and more consistent with something pretty serious. Davies and his colleagues published their findings Wednesday on the Web. It hasn't been peer reviewed yet. Bill him. Ege, an epidemiologist at Harvard University, says these models should be taken seriously by policymakers. It the variant is indeed 50% more transmissible. It will be difficult to stop its spread. It's really quite hard, at least given the assumptions and their models to avoid a situation very much like the spring in terms of hospital bed capacity and surges without a very high rate of extinction, that all said there's no reason to panic or be scared, Henrich says. It's not a magic virus. It zoo researching virus. It's you know, we have actually come across a large number of ways that we can use to stop her. However, we need to redouble our efforts in that direction. The new study suggests that people need to be even more vigilant about wearing mask, physical, distancing and avoiding large gatherings, and the vaccine needs to roll out quickly. It suggests that the vaccine needs to be getting out very, very high rates indeed, because he says the vaccine will still likely be effective against this new variant. My clean Do Cliff.

Not, so much time less but not so much time sensitive either so I told you I was GonNa talk to you about what cleaning up corruption means in Saudi Arabia and what it meant is that anybody who had been opposed to the kingdom? Regardless, of the righteousness or lack thereof of their 'cause I ended up detained and they put them in Nice hotels. But they were prisons remarkable times in Saudi Arabia. The hugely influential Sunni Muslim kingdom. There's been an unprecedented anti corruption perch with sweeping arrests of senior politicians and business leaders and members of the Royal Family and a Saudi Prince and seven other officials have been killed in a helicopter crash near the country's border with Yemen where Saudi Arabia is involved in a bitter civil war will tell us understand all of this our security correspondent. Frank Gardner joins US frank what a weekend for the Kingdom let's just talk about these coaches, I. Hamad. Bin Salman is seeing you know as as as a modernizer. So just tell us what all this means. These are incredible times in Saudi Arabia. There's never been anything quite like it, and in some ways, it's very exciting. His supporters are saying, this is the man who's going to lead us to the future who's setting the stage for a modern economy and modern society and jobs for all the millions of Saudis, who are pouring out of schools and universities others though especially, the older guard are extremely worried by these these changes that are happening very fast by Saudi standards this country unused to sudden change, and he is certainly amassing enemies amongst those older guard people. What happened to the weekend is that eleven senior princes including Prince Alwaleed bin Talal? Were detained. into some dark dungeon, they are reportedly staying in great comfort at the Ritz, Carlton Hotel or and other similar place. But the fact that they've been these very high profile establishment figures have been removed and very important. The head of the national. Guard Prince Matab bin Abdullah has been removed relieved of his command that removes at a stroke the final obstacle to the crown prince. Having total control over the country. Now, normally, it's his father King Salman, who's doing this the king, but he's eighty two and everybody inside ABC's this as the hand of the very ambitious dynamic and controversial crown prince whose only thirty two with very little experience. It's extraordinary. We're just getting in the last few minutes attorney general of Saudi. Arabia saying that this is just phase one. Indeed implying that there's more to come the idea that these people are really the spearhead of corruption inside Arabia. I. Think is a little bit hard to swallow because. The way businesses been done by them is the way business has been done by many people inside Arabia at all levels for a very long time. It was ever thus the arms deals inside the Arabia were always done in the past in the form of kickbacks in other words your the buyer I'm the seller and I pay Raum more than the inflated price. You take the difference that's what happened in the pulse. I can't say it's still happening today sudden. And the reality is that that that this idea that they had that? That this was purging corruption it was really just purging anybody who didn't want to do it. prince. Bin Salman. And Princeton Salman. Has Been the driver here in wanting Saudi Arabia to not be a how do I say this? Nicely. A. Medieval backwater. Okay Prince bin Salman. Came in and said. Okay women you can drive.

Western cat. Okay, he's you know. you know cargo shorts. And flip flops, Kinda Guy. is who he really is. He's western educated spent a lot of time in Europe. He doesn't walk around here in all all that you know Saudi stuff he walks around Europe in Polo shirt? and. This is kind of how he wants to have. Saudi Arabia be he understands that the West is not going to travel to. Saudi Arabia Because of how it is there you understand that that You know most Western women do not WanNa put on a he job to go on vacation. And do not want to be under threat of the religious police on the street for being unaccompanied without a male escort. And so. He doesn't want that for his country. He wants to change Saudi Arabia and changed the perception of it. Now unfortunately, he's also a brutal dictator like every dictator he abuses his power and he abused it in the case of Jamal Kashogi, who was the reporter for the Washington Post. Today's coincidence news just hours after trump floated. The idea that Washington Post journalist Jamal Shoghi was potentially murdered by rogue killers.

province of Saudi Arabia there's always an oil producing countries but you remember the old slowly moving all those years all those presidential campaigns all these candidates promising the M. dependence I'm sorry oil and nobody ever did we have the means to do so for a long time but we never did it because it would be expensive that that just cut to the chase fracking has done as much to destroy the soil of the Saudi exclusivity over oil in the world is anything in fracking is a distinct American procedure and it is it's a way of getting the oil out of the ground that heretofore was way too expensive to do it was not productive it was not profitable you can get it but it would cost you more than you could ever sell refined products for you couldn't sell gasoline or kerosene jet fuel for anywhere near enough of a profit to make fracking worthwhile but as American technology improved and as more and more people got involved in you know the north the codes of been revived bye bye shale oil production a number of states in this country have is the fact that we can now get oil from shale rock that has done one of the greatest bits of damage the Saudi Arabia now we're allies with them so we've not held in over their heads nearly as much as we could but we are now a net exporter of of fossil fuel energy net exporter of natural gas and oil brought about by fracking whatever you find natural gas refined oil whatever you find on your find natural gas natural gas is a clean fossil fuel it's not pollutant that's not that doesn't create a so called the greenhouse gases is clean is it conveyed and we own it we own it yet but we've always had an allied relationship with Saudi Arabia but the Russians have not and what's happening today with oil is that the new crown prince this thirty three year old kid who has he put his own mother under house arrest I want you to figure this follow me on this Mohammed bin Salman thirty one years old decided he's going to become the next king there are many of his brother is older than he is further in line closer in line to the ground and he is but somehow Mohammed bin Salman has launched himself above every other rival including his own brothers he's now the crown prince which means he's the facto ruler of the country his father king Salman still is the figure had but has allowed all of this to happen here in fact in order for Mohammed bin Salman you secure this position he had to put his mother in house arrest and two of her sisters for like three to four months just a question her way in one of the palaces she was a centrally in prison so that she could not run opposition to him in favor of some of her other sons stop and think her husband is Mohammed bin Salman's father where was he when they can put the mother under house arrest he didn't care this should tell you about women and Saudi Arabian live forms of Islam the mother can be sacked away now granted it's going to be a palatial house in which she is in house but she's under house or she can't believe she can't interact with the family she was essentially imprison her some points are there which your three of her sisters and and and her husband his dad either doesn't know or is perfectly fine with it are you and I cannot relate to this certainly could you imagine putting your mom in jail and your dad not caring that is that it and then can you imagine all of that happening so that you can take from your dad whatever he hasn't run the show well this is what's happening with the kids thirty one thirty three years old it's an amazing story there's a book coming out I think being released tomorrow about all of this I haven't read it with all of this fascinates me on a number of levels now Mohammed bin Salman Khan okay something else will happen fox before I got there what's roiling the markets here just I want you to have as much background as you can it was either last summer or two summers ago and I I forget which because time flies one of the riskiest luxurious hotels in Saudi Arabia is the Ritz Carlton in Riyadh Mohammed bin Salman Khan took it over and use it as a jail he put his nephews he put his brothers he put his own goals in this prison and charged them with corruption one of them one of the guys that he put in jail why is if you remember after nine eleven there was a Saudi admit yes Saudi Arabia Saudi prince Sinden waffle while Talal slip sometimes thing this guy offered to ten to fifteen million dollars or billion to help rebuild the World Trade Center if we would do something with the Jews and of course we told the guy to pound sand but he has is a heavy investor in a lot of American businesses and products as every investor in apple for a time Mohammed bin Salman put this guy in jail in the Ritz Carlton in Riyadh and said you have gotten what you have by virtue of corruption you need to give back to the government of Saudi Arabia X. numbers of billions of I think I was in jail for months before he finally said okay I'll give the money back thirty one thirty three year old kid was doing all that when I say kids everybody he's doing this to is twenty years older than he is and has been around a lot longer and supposedly would have rules of power that are much deeper than his but he's doing all of this with the permission of his father the king well Mohammed bin Salman Khan decided about three to four years ago that Saudi Arabia was too vulnerable as an oil only nation if the only export and product they had for people invest in was oil he said and he was right about this yeah we're we're too vulnerable because what happens with the supplier women if that day comes and it's at that hundreds of years or not by the way don't don't believe anybody's ever gonna run out of oil next year next month we've got so many hundreds of years of oil because oil continues to be made a lot of people think when they hear fossil fuels and oils resulted dinosaurs that died years ago on a pretty soon we're gonna run out all those but that's not what fossil fuels are it's a big miss mountain all morning and and something improperly named that fossil fuels are still being made and they're made inspect the particular places a low in the world Saudi Arabia happens to be where there aren't massive deposits at the time was the United States not by Mohammed bin hammam was correct about something he was correct that the Saudi royal family it moves Saudi Arabia needed to diversify sol you might remember he went on a world tour shortly after trump was elected Mohammed bin Salman comes the United States has massive meetings with Ivanka and Jared Kushner he had massive meetings with tech valley people Silicon Valley people he had massive meetings with Hollywood people he was pitching Saudi Arabia as an investment site for all kinds of things besides oil he wanted movie studios to be built there he wanted Silicon Valley you invest in in in structures factories think tanks you name it I installed here and and this royal Saudi Arabia because Saudi Arabia had never westernized like this they they they did not believe in westernizing like this and when Mohammed bin Salman went to meet these guys he dressed in a pair of jeans and a and a Ralph Lauren polo shirt and maybe where the headrests but but that was it I was kind of a short little chunky guy when you when you take the roads off of it but that doesn't matter he's got whatever hundreds of dozens of dollars is god.

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, backed by the king, moves for absolute power

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, backed by the king, moves for absolute power

"It is easy to forget that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz. Al Sowed is not actually technically ruler of Saudi Arabia. That title belongs formerly to his elderly Father King Salman however since his appointment as crown prince in two thousand seventeen. It has been widely understood that. Nbs often known is the heir designate. Power behind the throne and at the age of thirty four very much the future of Saudi Arabia in this unofficial role mb has furnished considerable cause for concern he has overseen a terrible onslaught against Yemen and a blockade of Qatar. Neither of which appear to have accomplished much. He has interred dozens of his fellow royalty. For a time in a Ritz hotel and more or less kidnapped the prime minister of Lebanon perhaps most infamously. Nbs is widely supposed responsible for the murder of Washington. Post columnist. Jamal Khashoggi even by those standards. This week's palace intrigue in Riyadh is remarkable. Several members of the court appear to have been arrested at MBA's instruction including one of his uncles and one of his cousins dozens more army officers and civil servants are also reported to have been rounded up east this NBA swatting a coup. D'etat conducting one of his own. If he does manage to reach the throne when King Solomon's time comes. What does he want to do with it and is in BS? Perhaps not quite the Mariah Carey loving modernizer. He would have us believe. This is the foreign desk when you bring in Mariah Carey and all these singers and pay them views amount of money but you do not have an any universities anyplace to learn music. There is no department in any Saudi university to learn. Play ride to a drama making this these other forms that you should look for. And whether this massive youth constituency what she has to some extent manage to bring behind him is still behind him in five years time because young people need to get jobs. They need to be able to get married. They can't subsistence promises forever. So I think Basch is going to be the key determinant his credibility rather than some of the things that I looked with more interested in the book. We must remember that. Donald Trump has given unequivocal support. D'amato Vince on who is heavily implicated in the killing of the journalist. Jamal Hasha he. Trump has had his back on that one and I think as as long as trump remains in power that this relationship will continue quite strongly. You're listening to the foreign desk. I'm Andrew Miller on today show. I'm joined by Ali Al Ahmed and Laura James Ali. Ahmed is a Saudi Scala. The Institute for Gulf Affairs joins us from Washington DC. Laura James is senior Middle East analyst at the Global Advisory Firm Oxford Analytica Ali. Al Start with you and I'll start with well it's not always an easy question to answer with Saudi Arabia's concerned which is the the pretty basic one of as far as we know what has been going on this week Mohammed bin Salman the heir apparent of King. Solomon who has a lot of political ambitions obviously has members of the ruling family who are his rivals and they do not want to see him become king if they would like to see him ousted some just by talking and some by plotting so what has happened is Hamad discernment is extremely insecure about that and he took measures to stop any attempt to remove him. We have two groups here those who are talking and then the sort of speaking ill of Like his uncle Ahmad but Abdelaziz who who thinks that he has better in terms of becoming king and you have his cousin especially the younger ones who rallied around the his main rival. Hamad bin naive to try to dislodge him for power by by force even and that is why we have seen these steps of arrest and monitoring hundreds of members on family who are eyeing the throne Laura to bring you in his they one fundamental thing looking behind this extraordinary shakespeare in intrigue. Is it a reasonable assumption that MBBS is trying to nail down his future in anticipation that King Mohammed who is eighty four years old and not in good health? Con- last forever. I think he's done really since he became Crown Princeton before has been based on that assumption. It's been about shoring up his position within the family and I think if when his father succeeded nobody would have predicted that he could have done it. This effectively. He is essentially unchallenged. Do we understand. If the differences between the rival factions are actually political or is this basically a more atavistic. Instinctual family feud. I'm not sure that you can draw the distinction very clearly in Saudi Arabia between family in politics the two very much Banda with each other. I would say one difference between Mohammed bin Salman. His rivals is that he thinks that the anyway food. Saudi Arabia is essentially for one person to be in clear charging for that person to him whereas some of the people who oppose him wants to get back to a more consensual style family managed rule and Schering of resources and consensus in enslave change whereas if a political as well family reasons bin Salman says no that model work for Saudi Arabia. Dunga all these possible to be clear on rich factions of the house of sowed supporting. Nbs this point. Does he actually have the numbers? I think? So the most important in Saudi government and the ruling. Saudi Arabia is not even the ruling family anymore. It was about power previously. The model like Laura speaking about the there were centers of power at King. Abdullah had the national guard was his own militia guns so he can force his His agenda and his position and so on the delayed crown prince was also minister of defense so he had the army under his control so he can push his agenda and most importantly then the ministry of the interior with late conference knife had the interior ministry. Which has the largest number of security personnel and across the country and so he can use that to push himself to the throne in all of these people reach the throne. Some some did some died before they they got to to become king now all of these powers the Army National Guard and the Interior Ministry has been gutted and removed. Everything that's powerful about. It has been moved to something called the State Security Agency and the control of bin Salman so our bin Salman controls all the military and security apparatus in the country. So who is his real challenge? No one they can speak. They can talk about. They cannot do very much. There are members of the family who want to see him out. This is not strange to the Saudi ruling family King Faysal was shot and killed by his own nephew. King Salad was overthrown by his brothers. And also there was an assassination attempt on his life after he was deposed and expelled. This is nothing new in the history of the family so I expect to see some harsh measures against some of those younger princess like Nawaf bin Ni- F- Who was arrested and Mohammed bin? Naif who is basically the boss the boss of this of this of these people because he has the best chance in rivaling Ahmed bin Salman let us remember. It was the Obama Administration C. i. a. A and Obama who brought Hamad Knife as the future king and gave him a lot of accolades And supported him and tell trump came and push 'em B. S. INSTEAD AND MR. I'm mad but was pushed out and he still. Mr Benign has a lot of support in Washington in day democratic side. So that was the fear that MBBS had Laura how much might MB S.'s? Stature in court or credibility in the court of being damaged by his own somewhat petulant impulsive behavior over the years whether that's launching this war in Yemen his involvement? In the murder of Jamal Khashoggi would there be a concern in the rest of the court that he might be quite the loose cannon concerns among some parts of the ruling family and very strong concerns internationally. I think there are two distinct issues. One is about foreign policy mistakes. And as you've said in terms of Yemen in terms of Qatar in terms of the confrontation with Iran and particularly in Lebanon. It seemed that. His foreign policy initiatives haven't worked very well. I think within the country that's less important like the Ritz Carlton and this latest. Crackdown are actually less important than the nuts and bolts of vision twenty thirty which is his transformation plan so Mohammed bin Salman has stepped forward and said we know we need to change. The oil is going to run out. We've got to move into a new era. Diversify the economy. Be ready for this. Get Jokes Young People Change Society? I need a huge amounts woods that intensive transforming the way in which Saudi Arabia

so called the greenhouse gases it's clean as it can be a and we own it we own it yet but we've always had an allied relationship with Saudi Arabia but the Russians have not and what's happening today with oil is that the new crown prince this thirty three year old kid who has he put his own mother under house arrest I want you to figure with the follow me on this Mohammed bin Salman thirty one years old decided he's going to become the next king there are many of his brothers older than he is further in line closer in line to the crown then he is but somehow Mohammed bin Salman has launched himself above every other rival including his own brothers he is now the crown prince which means he is the fact all ruler of the country his father king Salman still is the figure had but has allowed all of this to happen here in fact in order for Mohammed bin Salman just six short this position he had to put his mother in house arrest and two of her sisters for like three to four months just a question her away in one of the palaces she was a central unit prison so that she could not run opposition to him in favor of some of her other sons stop and think her husband is Mohammed bin Salman's father where was he when the kids put the mother under house arrest he didn't care this should tell you about women and Saudi Arabian live forms of Islam the mother can be sacked away now granted it's going to be a palatial house in which she is in house but she's under house or she can't believe she can't interact with the family she was essentially imprison her some points are there which your three of her sisters and and and her husband his dad either doesn't know or is perfectly fine with it I you and I cannot relate to this certainly can you imagine putting your mom in jail and your dad not caring that you did it and then can you imagine all of that happening so that you can take from your dad whatever he hasn't run the show well this is what's happening but the kids thirty one thirty three years old it's an amazing story there's a book coming out I think being released tomorrow about all of this I haven't read it but all of this fascinates me on a number of levels now Mohammed bin Salman Khan I think something else happened fox before I get there once roiling the markets here just I want you to have as much background as you can it was either last summer or two summers ago and I I forget which because time flies one of the riskiest luxurious hotels in Saudi Arabia is the Ritz Carlton in Riyadh Mohammed bin Salman Khan took it over and use it as a jail he put his nephews he put his brothers he put his own goals in this prison and charged them with corruption one of them one of the guys that he put in jail why is if you remember after nine eleven there was a Saudi admit me yes saw the number WWE Saudi prince Sinden waffle outsole also some such thing this guy offered to ten to fifteen million dollars or billion to help rebuild the World Trade Center if we would do something with the Jews and of course we told the guy to pound sand but he has is a heavy investor in a lot of American businesses and products is a heavy investor apple for a time Mohammed bin Salman put this guy in jail in the Ritz Carlton in Riyadh and said you have gotten what you have by virtue of corruption you need to give back to the government of Saudi Arabia X. numbers of millions of other guy was in jail for months before he finally said okay I'll give the money back thirty one thirty three year old kid was doing all that when I say kid everybody he's doing this to is twenty years older than he is and has been around a lot longer and supposedly would have roots of power that are much deeper than his but he's doing all of this with the permission of his father the king well Mohammed bin Salman Khan decided about three to four years ago that Saudi Arabia was too vulnerable as an oil the only nation if the only export and product they had for people invest in was oil he said and he was right about this yeah we're we're too vulnerable because what happens with the supply of women if that day comes and it's at that's hundreds of years of not by the way don't don't believe anybody's ever gonna run out of oil next year next month we've got so many hundreds of years of oil because oil continues to be made a lot of people think when they hear fossil fuels of the oils resulted dinosaurs that died years ago in a pretty soon we're going to run out all those thought that's not what fossil fuels are it's a big miss mountain Martin and and something improperly named that fossil fuels are still being made and they're made in sports in particular places in law in the world Saudi Arabia happens to be were there are massive deposits and but so is the United States not by Mohammed bin hammam was correct about something he was correct that the Saudi royal family it moves Saudi Arabia needed to diversify sol you might remember he went on a world tour shortly after trump was elected Mohammed bin someone comes the United States has massive meetings with Ivanka and Jared Kushner he had massive meetings with tech valley people Silicon Valley people get massive meetings with Hollywood people he was pitching Saudi Arabia as an investment site for all kinds of things besides oil he wanted movie studios to be built there he wanted Silicon Valley you invest in in in structures factories think tanks you name it in Saudi an.

S. shale drillers and other producers and so when when push came to shove and OPEC was deciding whether or not to cut output again longer for the rest of the year because of the drop in demand for the corona virus a Russian stuck fast in the they decided they didn't need to do that and they urge their producers to boost output as much as they can from the end of the month and Saudi Arabia follows suit and they said they would also be boosting output as well and the other OPEC members will also likely follow us now there's just a mad dash to try to grab as much market share as possible with the U. S. shale producers next up to see what they're going to be doing going forward yep city before it really starts to impact our own these countries budgets of course of Russia Saudi Arabia is still massively dependent on oil revenues will also going to be there looking to European oil stocks potentially amongst the biggest decline is when the market's actually open later this morning in Europe's even what you think oh absolutely I mean if you look at the producers at least in in Asia it's been a bit of a blood bath you've seen Japanese producers as well as Chinese and a few other companies across the board just all in the red today dropping significantly it's going to be the same when you open up in Europe in their arguably bigger producers you have shell and a number of other big players and you're gonna be looking at exactly how they're gonna be falling now with the US one thing that you could see if prices stay in this thirty dollar level for a number of weeks you could start to see actual bankruptcies in U. S. shale producers are number of some all companies that their break even costs are in about the forty five dollar level and if you see this going on longer they might either decide to just you know file for bankruptcy or they could be soaked up as part of an MNA deal by a bigger player or merge with other folks so this will have seismic effects and in the U. S. market going forward if the prices don't firm up in the next few days and weeks we'll see a very briefly on that I mean I guess with China gearing its economy back into a post virus phase potentially the Dimond could could come back couldn't there is a potential you know it China's enormous player of oil if they have the demand back and if there are people driving cars flying in airplanes that that could come back and you could see a bit of a balance but the fact of the matter is you know this coronavirus is fast spreading across the rest of the world and it was we look at the United States if there's some sort of of furthering of of the spread in the United States you see folks are driving not not consuming it could be worse than what what happened with China when they shut down so there is a bit more fear going forward I think but of course like you said the silver lining is China could be coming back and I could provide a lift as long as the rest of the world doesn't see much of a drop okay thank you so much Steven substance he that for joining us this morning but it begs energy report so they live in Singapore I read headline would be back terminal now Kuwait has halted his premium market trading for a second day in a row virtually so emerging markets get absolutely hammered yesterday the Kuwaiti index dropping at ten percent so we see Kuwait suspending trading at its prime yeah market this is the market that comprises Kuwait's biggest most liquid company so that for the second day in a row according to statements right let's get the latest in global news from the younger you start in fact in the Gulf yes it was a good morning reports from Riyadh say the Saudi authorities have begun releasing will family members and other officials he was detained in a security clampdown the arrests were ordered by crown prince Mohammed bin Salman and included a brother and a nephew of his father king Salman at least to the detainees have been accused of treason observers say the prince's move shows his concerns about potential challenges within his own family no pope Francis's joined Israelis efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus the pontiff delivered his blessing on line from the library inside the Vatican to prevent crowds gathering posted on it's a bit strange this Angelus prayer today with the pope caged in the library boss I see you and I am close to you the virtual blessing came off to a case of corona virus was confirmed inside the Vatican it's initially there are more than six thousand confirmed cases and two hundred and thirty three deaths now Greek prime minister Kiriakis Mr Tucker's travels to Berlin today where he'll meet the German chancellor Angela Merkel books pull Tugwell says the two leaders will join those at the Greek German economic forum the two leaders will meet on the sidelines of the event what are expected to focus on two issues that have arisen since the forum was organized namely the coronavirus and specifically its economic fallout which taxes will also brief medical on the latest developments at the Greek Turkish border when large numbers of migrants and refugees continue to attempt to cross from Turkey into the European Union in Athens Paul Tugwell Bloomberg daybreak Europe and Lebanon announced over the weekend that it would default on a one point two billion dollars euro bond that was G. to date but still in a crash has all those details the government wants to negotiate with bondholders to restructure its thirty billion dollar debt part of its effort to save an economy already facing its worst financial crisis remains to be seen whether Lebanon can reinvent itself without a bailout from the International Monetary Fund something bondholders might want to see the route Donna Creech Bloomberg daybreak Europe cable news twenty four hours a day on that and QuickTake by Bloomberg pallets by more than twenty seven hundred journalists some analysts symbol the one hundred and twenty countries I'm young parents this is Bloomberg Caroline thank you so much land the sports news now he's Joe Wilson.

All stability, crown prince, Mohammad bin Salman represents a break from that and his actions have some wondering whether Saudi Arabia may be destabilizing the Gulf region. Here's NPR national security correspondent Greg Mary. The old Saudi Arabia was a place. The United States often turn to in times of turbulence. When oil prices were spiking or political tensions were spiraling out of control. The new Saudi Arabia under crown prince. Mohammad bin Salman is now a key actor and sometimes an instigator in some of the region's most combustible events, Mohammed bin Salman as. Straighted recklessness and impulsiveness in decision making that has been very costly to the kingdom. That's Bruce ridell of the Brookings Institution who keeps a close watch on the kingdom. The crown prince is just thirty three. He rose to prominence three years ago when his father king Salman. Now AJ to became the most recent of seven brothers to take the Saudi throne since then the Saudis have embarked on a war in Yemen. They've blockaded their neighbor Qatar, and now they're under intense scrutiny for the disappearance and apparent death of journalist, Jamal kashogi. I think that the difference between Mohammed bin soman and and his uncles who ruled Saudi Arabia previously is that he might not have a sense of the limits of Saudi power. That's Gregory GAAS, a professor at Texas AM in an expert on Saudi Arabia. He says these episodes raise questions about the crown prince's judgment. He. Doesn't appreciate the the second and third order consequences and risks of some of these actions that he's taken the Warren Yemen where the US supports the Saudis. It's become a military stalemate and humanitarian. Catastrophe, the US Saudi relationship which dates to World War Two has often been bumpy you. Saudi relationship has always been about interested in non values. So says Jon Alterman of the center for strategic and international studies. Those interests include stability in world. Oil markets countering and expansive Iran, and keeping the Gulf comb. US presidents have come to understand by the end of their term that a lot of things in the Middle East and around the world are much easier to do with the Saudis on board and much more difficult if the Saudis are fighting you. This battle with Iran for preeminence in the region, Dr Saudi policy. But before Muhammad, the Saudis rely. Lied more on diplomacy and their financial clout. The crown prince has a more confrontational approach. Says Gregory gauze. He sees a Ron throwing its weight around in the region, and I think he, he says, why can't? Why can't Saudi Arabia do that? Well, I think that that Saudi Arabia hasn't been able to do it successfully. Donald Trump made his first foreign trip as president to Saudi Arabia, and he's a staunch supporter of the kingdom. This may have encouraged the Saudis to be more aggressive, but the international outcry over the disappearance of Jamal kashogi may change the equation says, Bruce ridell. The kashogi affair has now really raised a Pandora's box for the administration. The congress and the American media are not going to let the kashogi fair just go away as Mohammed bin Salman continues to disrupt the status quo. His critics are growing Greg, Mary NPR news, Washington support for NPR.
