No justice in sight as Jamal Khashoggi's murder trial resumes

"In turkey today the trial is resuming of twenty. Six people accused of involvement in the murder of jamalco shoji in london. One of mr khashoggi's friends. He's been in touch with his fiance. Says they're trying to stay positive in spite of the grim. It's more than two years. Since the veteran saudi journalist was suffocated in his country's consulate in istanbul his body sawn into pieces by a squad of assassins flown in on private jets after four nine denials. Saudi arabia has admitted that the missing journalists jamila shoji died during his visits to the country's constitution is the trial will be of little consequence. None of the suspects is in turkish custody and it poses little threat to mohammed bin salman saudi arabia's crown prince and facto ruler who many believe to be ultimately responsible. America's reaction to the grisly murder is a window into how the country thinks about dealing with its historical and the power dynamics in a region riven by religious divides and proxy wars. The trump administration held back a report on metric a shoji's murder a report that the biden administration published last week concluding the crown prince approved the operation despite imposing sanctions on some saudis. Mr biden didn't impose any on prince mohammed. America's president now out how to navigate the country's relationship with saudi arabia and with the region as a whole

Why Has the US Sanctioned Russian Officials but Not the Saudis?

Why Has the US Sanctioned Russian Officials but Not the Saudis?

"The. Us treasury department sanctioning russian officials in response to the poisoning the attempted assassination of a russian political leader and dissident alexi navalny ni With novacek. Do you think this is a good idea. I do i do i. It was just unacceptable for the united states to be silent in the wake of russia's most important opposition leader being intentionally poisoned now in prison by putin's government. I mean if we don't lead the global fight to protect democracy and stand up for pro democratic movements in places like russia no one will and what we see is that the forces of despotism are on the march democrat democracies that we took for granted just ten years ago are now slowly sliding away from self determination even in and on the edges of europe and so by standing up to one of the world's most brutal bullies vladimir putin We are also. I think sending a signal to nascent democracy movements and fragile democracies that america is back on the democracy promotion stage so speaking of that. There's a there. Of course. Also the release of the previously classified report about the intelligence communities findings about bin hamad bin salman that he had greenlighted at the very least the operation to capture or kill but those are the words. They're a jamal khashoggi. Newspaper columnist the washington post. The biden administration not doing anything personally. Mohammed bin salman not revoking visa. Travel rights were personal sanctions. Saying the emas recalibration not a rupture. We've been very clear with a saudi. This is an historic partnership. It's lasted for seventy five years. What do you think of that. I mean i think you can sort of connect these two conversations. There's no question that vladimir putin ordered the poisoning of alexei navalny but we didn't announce sanctions on putin today largely because We tend to not levy sanctions on the leaders of countries And i think that is probably part of the rationale for why m b. s. was spared sanctions but i would make this argument on saudi arabia. I frankly think that Nbs weapons matter much more to him than his visa. And so what i would argue is that we should recalibrate. Our security partnership with the saudis. I if they're going to be in the business of chopping up dissidents or targeting them all around the world and we shouldn't be selling them weapons and so. I think the administration is right now. Having debate about what our security partnership looks like and if we make changes to that well. It looked like a personal sanction on. Mvs you'll have a big impact on him and his priorities. Senator chris murphy. Thanks for making time tonight.

U.S. imposes sanctions, visa bans on Saudis for journalist Khashoggi's killing

"This report on the killing of jamal khashoggi Joe biden. i think it's given quite an incipient response to it saying we're going to withdraw visas from some saudi leaders. I will only deal with the king not dealing with His name it's bin salman anymore. I'm thinking how pathetic given you. Saudi arabia state in the campaign. And this really is the best that you can do if you were prime minister. Now what would you do. Hasn't he also said that they're going to restrict arm sales though on the basis of the yemen conflict which is quite a big thing about listening to the if i was a few weeks here. That's got nothing to do with this. No but it does signal a change in the us leadership's approach to saudi in fact the the the publication of the report which was in existence when trump was the president is also a sign of a change and a sort of strengthening of the position with respect to saudi i. It's so difficult because saudi is an important. You know everybody goes or just want a relationship with saudi so that you can sell them. Lots of weapons. Well yes is part of the answer to that but actually they are quite important security partner particularly in relation to counter-terror not quite often why people have perhaps not taken the very robust approach to them that you might have expected when they get inside this apparatus and begin to understand that relationship

U.S. says Saudi crown prince approved Khashoggi killing, imposes visa restrictions on 76 Saudis

"It was just about two pages long but those pages carried the weight of the. Us government will not proven a summary of findings issued by us intelligence agency state that saudi arabia's crown prince approved two thousand eighteen killing of jamal. Khashoggi it's been long suspected that prince mohammed bin salman defacto leader ordered the murder but the release of the summary finding sends a clear signal. That president biden's taking tougher stand against the kingdom than his predecessor. Npr's jackie northam has been following developments and joins us. Jackie thanks so much for being with us morning. Scott hi please give us an overview of the main findings right well just to be clear. There's no smoking gun but you know. There's a lot of circumstantial evidence in this two page report. And let me just read you a line from it. If i could quote the crown prince has had absolute control of the kingdom security and intelligence organizations making it highly unlikely that saudi officials would have carried out an operation of this nature without the crown prince's authorization unquote and scott. It goes on to say that members of his close inner circle were involved. In the killing and dismemberment of kashogi and the crown prince has supported the use of violent methods to silence dissidents abroad. And you compare what's in this report to what president trump said when asked about whether the crown prince had any knowledge of the killing and he downplayed it saying maybe he did. Maybe he didn't and One of the things to keep in mind. You know this report is a summary and there's a lot more evidence that the cia has about khashoggi's death that remains classified this report summary note but Does seem to say pretty bluntly that. The saudi crown prince has blood on his hands What kind of potential impact Could this happen relations between the us and saudi arabia. Which after all has been a very close ally for decades right. yeah well. it's it's definitely bound to have an impact you know. The crown prince is likely to become king of saudi arabia. And we'll be around for a very long time and it'll be interesting to see how the us will deal with him both in the short term after this report and certainly in the long term once he becomes king. We don't know how that's gonna shake out yet but as you say. Saudi arabia is a longtime ally in a really strategically important area of the world. You know in an interview with npr. Yesterday admiral hanes the director of national intelligence. Said it was just too soon to tell if the relationship has been damaged by this. Let's have a listen. It is not surprising. I suppose to see a shift in the relationship in some ways with the new administration and a new position and the number of challenging issues that we face together. But i think there will be what he's to whether the various storms that we have in front of us and one other thing. The saudi foreign ministry said on friday that the kingdom has already jailed. Those responsible for kashoggi's killing and that while it completely rejects the reports findings it called. Us saudi relationships robust and enduring. Jackie calls from From many quarters Clothing members of congress Human rights organizations calling on president biden to to punish sanction of the crown prince For his role in khashoggi's death. How likely does that seem to be. Biden's stop short of severely punishing the crown prince. But he said on. Friday evening that from now on the kingdom is going to be held responsible for human rights abuses and he said that there would be more significant changes announced on monday. He didn't indicate what those might be. But you know the administration did take some other steps yesterday. It announced something called the kashogi ban which allows the state department to impose visa restrictions on anyone acting on behalf of a foreign government Who's threatening dissidents overseas and it's already imposes kashogi ban on seventy six saudis and their families. And you know secretary of state. Anthony blinken talked about these moves by the us yesterday. Here he is. So what we've done by the actions that we've taken Is really not to rupture the relationship. But to recalibrate to be more in line with our interests and our values but apparently this travel ban doesn't include the crown prince himself and administration officials said on background yesterday that as a matter of practice. The us doesn't apply sanctions on the highest leadership of countries with which it has diplomatic relations and already there are increasing calls for tougher action against the saudi crown print

US implicates Saudi crown prince in journalist's killing

"I'm anthony davis saudi arabia's crown prince likely approved the killing of journalist jamal khashoggi inside the saudi consulate in istanbul. According to a newly declassified us intelligence report released friday that instantly ratcheted up pressure on the biden administration to hold the kingdom accountable for a murder that drew worldwide outrage. The intelligence findings were long known to many us officials and even as they remain classified have been reported with varying degrees of precision but the public rebuke of crown prince. Mohammed bin. Salman is still a touchstone in us saudi relations. It leaves no doubt that as the prints continues in his powerful role and likely ascends to the throne. Americans will forever associated with the brutal killing of a journalist who promoted democracy and human rights yet even as the biden administration released the findings it appeared determined to preserve the saudi relationship by avoiding direct punishment of the prince himself despite demands from some congressional democrats and kashogi allies for significant and targeted sanctions. Saudi arabia's foreign ministry responded by saying the kingdom categorically rejects the offensive and incorrect assessment in the report pertaining to the kingdom's leadership democrats in congress praised the administration for releasing the report the trump administration had refused to do so but urge to take more aggressive actions including against the prince representative adam schiff champion of the house.

"The us president. Joe biden has spoken by phone with king salman of saudi arabia as the white house resets. The relationship between washington and riyadh ties between the two countries have become significantly closer during donald trump's time in office but this has been further complicated by matters following the murder of the journalist. Jamal khashoggi a us report due to be released shortly is expected to implicate the king's son crown prince mohammed bin salman offer more. I'm joined by bill. Law a middle east analyst and editor of arab digest and a regular voice on twenty. Good morning bill your morning. Let's examine straight away. What do we know that was in this. Coal between the us president the saudi king issues that perhaps saudi doesn't really want to talk about. What actually what's interesting about. The call is that the president touched on three issues. One was human rights. Any specifically single Jane elliott loon. The women's rights activist. Who has been released from prison but still has a severe restrictions on her The second is warned. Yemeni americans have made clear that they want this war to end and the third was security reassuring king solomon that america has saudi arabia's back. And of course that is important particularly given the situation with iran and mr biden's desire to return to the jcp away and interestingly as well his secretary of state tony blinken conversation with his counterpart flies. Open fought hand the saudi foreign secretary. He said pretty much the same thing. He didn't mention the. Jane elliott little but he talked about human rights. He talked about yemen and he talked about security. So the question is is these attempts to reassure as well as depress on the fronts. That biden wants action on or is this basically setting things up for this report that will be released and appears to be naming. The king's son magas oman instrumental in the killing of dramatic hollywood v. a everyone waits and most of all i think the saudis holding that brett i think that The in of the relationship between the united states in saudi arabia look. Saudi arabia is a key ally in the middle east for america. I don't know that biden wants to push very very hard in terms of doing down. How hotline as as some have suggested. I do think he wants to see some serious behavioral changes and he's using the issue of human rights as a way of achieving net.

I think for buying if if he wants to have a fundamentally different relationship with Saudi Arabia, I think it's a reflection that he thinks he can have a fundamentally different relationship with Iran. And I think That part of the premises. Incorrect. As long as the Ayatollahs are in tower. Nobody could don's the murder show. Nobody has any doubt that the Saudi government was involved in it. This is a this is a matter of realpolitik. In in that region way need the Saudis and they need us When I was in Moscow, once meeting with President Putin, he just he thought of his real humorous.

"And African studies at Chinese Academy of social sciences JAL high research fellow with Chinese Academy of social sciences. Well, people say that sometimes a particular event or the fate or the fate of particular individual could become the symbol of a historical trend and the murder of Jamal Khashoggi the Saudi journalists as believed by many as one of those moments on October the second twenty eight dramatic shaggy went into these Saudi consulate in east timbale and disappeared after more than two weeks of Niles. Saudi Arabia eventually admitted that he had been killed within the consulate in what officials. Called a rogue operation and as out to punish those responsible. The journalist who lived in the US and wrote for the Washington Post having critical of these Saudi regime US intelligence officials determined that Saudi security officials were most likely acting orders from crown prince Mohammad bin Salman when it killed and dismembered the journalist don't own form who've used to crown prince as an I why has been reluctant to accept the findings. So don't hurt start. With many are saying that the case is like a test of some of the key values upheld by the western world. What do you make of the responses from the western countries? Yes. This case, I think can be regarded as one of the big international news in the year two thousand eighteen it has generated several impacts while as that U S image now has been a great damaged especially to the present Tump because he has been insisting like. Elias Assadi, even though the CIA has released a report saying the Saudi prince Krung now has been the the person giving the older to to kill the journalist Kazuki. So this moral the moral like for the United States is no longer there. So called democracy, like human rights like transparency or of that. Now, it seems like a very clear now that national interests now economic interests and also those minitary, you know, the weapons sale the buying things. Those things are becoming the the number one priority for the US and the secondary. I think also had impact on, you know, the international relations, particularly in the Middle East area. We all know like Turkey used to be I lied waster rusher and also the wrong, especially in the case of the Syria crisis. But now because they're some maybe those. Deals has been on the taken using this Casseus case as a backing cheap. Now, we have seen that the United States made the decision. Tom made the decision Wishaw those troops US troops from Syria. So this wish shores seem supplies Butto. Will you look the Turkish relations with the United States? Now, it's getting better than before. So and also the turkeys longer like a pushing that heart like a it's beginning about this case. So I think always readers some deals has been reached between Turkey in the US from the case of these journalists the killing and the we also see even US are now would like to sell those missile though, so anti anti those missile weapons. They used to be haunted by the congress. But Senator, but now he's saying alright continue. So those are three point five beating your Stoller are the. Peek sale to weapons to the to the Turkey. So this is another sign and the trying to even to really to send back the student grin has been regarded as the some long behind those military recoup years ago. So all of these things coming from this generous the king. So they has been using a the bagging cheese now getting the Turkey now closer now is the US. This is you know, the camp Nala longer closer with Russia. We'll Dr Joe do you feel the case could be a turning point for the relations between Saudi Arabia and the west or do you feel that the leverage the Saudi Arabia has on his in terms of oil in terms of arms as one of is position in the virgin will make less vulnerable to those outside pressure.

"We'll begin today with time magazine, which is now announced its person of the year and predictably enough in a time when the media really loves them some media the persons of the year all journalists because there's nothing that really attracts Americans to journalists as much as journalists, Pat. Themselves on the back the journalists. I've actually run out of enough hands to Pat themselves on the back. So who exactly is being honored? They call them the gua- the guardians and the war on truth. Obviously, President Trump being the war on truth, and these people being the guardians of the truth. Because if there's one group of people you can trust to tell you the truth without partisan, rancor or fear. It's those journalists all those journalists who agree on everything. Those are the people who we should certainly trust with all of your fact-based needs. So their bunch of different folks who are photographed for the cover of time magazine, Jamal Khashoggi was made the person of the year on the cover of time magazine now Jamal Khashoggi. You'll recall was the Saudi citizen who was here on a visa, and then he wants Turkey and went to the Saudi consulate for a marriage documents and was promptly murdered by the members of the Saudi consulate and then chopped up and Senator bag back to Saudi Arabia. This all went wrong. It was very bad for the Trump administration, which of course, has been very close with the Saudi Arabian. Government particularly the new leader of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad bin Salman. That's the reason that time magazine selected Jamal Khashoggi who in reality was in fact, pretty radical on politics had a longtime history of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood. He's very much in favor of more radical Islam in the Middle East, not less radical Islam in the Middle East. You certainly no moderate. But since he was word for being a journalist. He is the time magazine person of the year because people are trying to basically draw a parallel between President Trump's dislike for the media and violence against journalists so much so that there honoring the folks over at the capitol gazettes, which was a newspaper. You'll remember those attacked in Virginia. Now, it turns out that the capital is that was not in fact attacked by Trump supporter. It was not attacked by somebody who hated the media because President Trump was not fond the media, it was tacked by somebody who had a personal vendetta with the paper. So why exactly are they on the cover of time magazine because time has to draw a false line suggesting the journalists all over the world are under assault specifically because of President Trump it's not as though we've had you know, evil, murderous governments had been cracking down on journalists for the. All of human history. It's that now we have President Trump in the White House and things have changed. I do appreciate how there are. No journalists who are actually from Turkey or interviewed for these time magazine articles Turkey, of course, is the country behind all of the revelations about Jamal Khashoggi Turkey has arrested literally hundreds of thousands of dissidents over the past several years as it moves from democracy into dictatorship. Time magazine has nothing to say about that Jamal Khashoggi. However is obviously worry number one. Now that doesn't mean we shouldn't worry about the Jamal Khashoggi case. But again, this is the media trying to play itself up who else was was honored while Maria Rosa who was an editor..

"Now, secretary of state. Mike Pompeo says the US is revoking visas for number of Saudi officials who may have been involved in the killing of Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi. We have identified at least some of the individuals responsible, including those in the intelligence services, the Royal court, the foreign ministry and other side ministries who we suspect to have been involved in Mr. Khashoggi's death. Pompeo says, the treasury department is also considering targeted sanctions and President Trump is promising quote, some kind of retribution. Meanwhile in Turkey where Khashoggi disappeared, president rate of type air to won- says the journalists was killed any pre meditated political murder. He's rejected the Saudi claim that kashogi died in a botched interrogations carried out by rogue operative. Gives the information and the evidence Duffy has so far collected indicate that Jamaica Shoghi was slain in a vicious, violent emerge. Whitewashing such vitality will, of course injured and Boone's the conscience of all humanity. And we are, of course, looking forward to the same sensitivity being demonstrated by the initiation of Saudi Arabia and all other parties to this effect. Now for more on this story and how it's playing out in Turkey and Saudi Arabia is NPR's Peter Kenyon. He's an Istanbul and Deborah Amos, she's covered the region for many years. Welcome back is thank you. So Peter, I want to start with you. What can you tell us more about what to one had to say today? Well, he laid out some of what we know and edited new details, including the fact that members of this fifteen men, Saudi team that showed up the day kashogi disappeared were tracked scouting out remote sites, including a forest. The idea being they might have been looking for place to dump a body. All the details. One added seemed. Aimed at knocking down the Saudis version of events, their latest version that showed you died accidentally after a fight broke out in the consulate. Everyone didn't talk about alleged audio recordings investigators are said to have, but if his evidence holds up, the Saudi explanation does not. He said, who in a leadership gave the order. That's what he wants to know. So Peter, what else happened today? Well, the investigators searched a diplomatic vehicle. Saudi consular vehicle found in a parking garage had been left there for two weeks. They found suitcases inside with some clothes that may belong to Saudi consular employees. We're still waiting confirmation also CIA director. Gina Aspel flew to on Kare to review evidence and aired on spoke with kashogi family members and offered condolences dead. The Saudis also reached out to Kashoggi's family. There were pictures released of his son meeting with the Saudi King and the crown prince. What more? Can you tell us about this? You know the picture was striking there. You have the son of a slain journalist standing. In front of the crown prince who some say is linked to his death in Istanbul. This event overshadows a economic conference that opened today. This was supposed to be the capstone for the crown prince who wants to transform the Saudi economy, but many global executives pulled out and they actually had to take the list of participants off the website. Here's the opening speech. It was given by a Saudi businesswoman Lubna only on and she had to address the concerns in the room. I want to tell all or foreign guests for whose presence with us this morning. We are very grateful that the terrible acts reported in recent weeks are alien to our culture and our DNA, and I'm confident that the support of the government concerned of our teens and leadership, the truth will emerge. Now, despite the cloud there was somewhere around thirty billion. Dollars of investment on the first day with Saudi, Aramco the crown prince made a surprise appearance and he got a standing ovation. Also, the Saudis met a very big deal out of US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin visit. He pulled out of the conference, but he had a one on one meeting with the crown prince that picture played in the Saudi media with headlines that said, this relationship is crucial. One striking aspect of this story has been the way that Turkey has handled it and Peter. I want to ask you about this because ever since Kashoggi's disappearance Turkish authorities have been revealing details about what they think happened kind of bit by bit each day..

"It's not just as simple as journalist, it's a guy who worked with the Saudi Royal family. For a long time and we know that he was working on their behalf in the nineteen eighties when he was palling around with some bin Laden by all reports when he was hanging out with Osama bin Laden, he was trying to end the feud between the Saudi Royal family and Osama bin Laden, but he was hanging out with him for a long time. There was a photo that was uncovered. I believe by Haaretz, which shows Jamal Khashoggi holding an RPG a rocket-propelled grenade with terrorists in Afghanistan. In the nineteen eighties, we know that Jamal Khashoggi defended supporters of suicide bombings that he vigorously defended HAMAs the brutal terrorist group in the Middle East. We know that that according to Al Arabiya, he tried to get some bin Laden to be a little less violent, but went Osama bin Laden died Jamal. Khashoggi, apparently cried and talked about how he wept when Osama bin Laden died. Now, he after September eleventh, he turned away from Osama bin Laden. He said, that's no good. Okay, fine. But he, he wept when bin Laden died. So again, a Turkey says that it has the audio recording of Jamal Khashoggi being killed by the Saudis. Maybe it does. Maybe it doesn't. I have very little reason to believe. But in this case, I very little reason to disbelieve Turkey because the Saudis commit heinous crimes all the time. There are now also reports that Saudi Arabia is looking for a replacement for the crown prince Mohammad bin Salman. He's the, he's the new guy in town. He's been hailed in the west as a reformer. He actually has instituted certain reforms pretty major reforms in so much as doing a little bit of business with Israel. You know, obviously the kind of headline grabbing ones letting women drive, but he does seem to have an eye toward the future. It would be very, very bad idea for Saudi Arabia to replace this guy right now. I really think it's a bad idea. The arguments against the crown prince of Saudi Arabia or that he's not in favor of democracy in the kingdom. Great. Why on earth would we be in favor of democracy in Saudi Arabia, how his have our experiments in democracy panned out in other repressive Islam countries? Not very well. Why? Why are we supposed to conclude now that a democratic Saudi Arabia would be any more peaceful for the kingdom for the region and for the United States than a democratic Saudi Arabia. I don't really buy that and you know, some of the so-called pro-democracy agitators in Saudi Arabia have pretty radical Islamist ties even more radical than the Saudi Royal family. Okay. What else? The other thing is be dinged for is that he's developed a pretty good relationship with Donald Trump. Again, this is nothing new. This Saudi Royal family has had a relationship with the US for a long time, but because everyone hates Trump on the left, they're trying to ding him for that as well. I highly recommend you read a piece today co written by Michael Duran, Michael arenas, an excellent foreign policy analyst. It's in the New York Post. I think presents a fair take on who Khashoggi is who Mohammed bin Salman is and what the relationship is between those families. You know, to call him a dissident journalist who fled to America that that presents one picture, but it's not like he fled to America ten or fifteen or twenty years ago. It's not like he fled to America after he was palling around with bin Laden. And he suddenly had an awakening. He fled to America after the political tides turned in Saudi Arabia, and there's a new crown prince in town. Okay. Here are some other things by the way that Jamaica shaggy wrote about the painted. Different victory said, quote, Saudi Arabia now believes its interests lie in facing Islam, assists who were supposed to be. It's a Stoorikhel allies. I often hear Saudi Arabian intellectuals on television attacking political Islam. And my answer to them is that Saudi Arabia is the mother and father of political Islam. So you've got this guy Khashoggi who was killed. Extolling the virtues of Islamism of political Islam. The vicious ideology that we've been fighting now explicitly for fifteen years, and yet the left in America is expecting us to render garments in Nash our teeth because defender of political Islam has been killed by his government. I'm not saying that I'm happy about the killing..

"Thank you for listening. You know, you have to be inhuman unfeeling have no empathy or sympathy or care for other people in the world. If you haven't been disgusted by the story of Jamal Khashoggi who was murdered by the Saudi Arabian government, I don't know that there's any other way you can look at it and you know, and I sit here and it's the show is beginning and the intro to the show talks about the need for free press in order for democracy to thrive. I'm paraphrasing, obviously, and that is really, that's been weighing heavily on me as specially after reading Khashoggi's final op Ed piece. That was. Published by the Washington Post online last night in today's newspaper, and what I wanna do is share that with you because it's so important. But before we get there, we need to lighten things up a little bit. It's Thursday that means Sambi was on TV last night. Smudges Republicans love to veer black people. There's another scary group that shooting up the charts. Women, you have women who are getting in in their faces in these senators faces and saying how dare you. One of the woman who screaming in them, it turns out is a professional activist on the payroll of billionaire. George Soros the very rude elevator screamers are paid for baffles me looking to make senators, look bad, don't fall for screaming women, my ears are burning. I haven't felt this hated for being a woman since much really every day that I'm a woman. Making it sound like sexual assault survivors are this vastly powerful cabal they are not. You know how I know that because one of these people became a supreme court Justice and the other can't go back to her fuck in home. But the right is really painting a picture of liberal women as a deadly bitch tornado, do you want mob rule or law and order? We must teach the mob a lesson. Those who tried to overturn the rule of law and replace it with mob rule, no to mob rule. We stood up to the mob mob like tactics, left-wing mobs, an actual mom. They read a good democrat mob. If anyone would know about the mob, it's Donald Trump. Just because people are protesting something doesn't make them a mob, but they're just protesters at this rate, they're going to rebrand Mahatma Gandhi as Mahatma the kill, and it's a little hard to take Republicans seriously on this.

"Aircraft that, you know one American aircraft one French aircraft in one Russian aircraft. It doesn't work that way where they do have some leverage is they are the central banker oil. I mean, even though we are now in energy independent and we produce a lot of oil cybio oil is the easiest oil to extract. And so that makes it very easy for them to switch on and switch off production in a way that's very hard to do with fracking or Russian oil because these are very expensive projects. And once you put the money and you can't take it out. So the Saudis had that capacity to go on and off. Which makes them very powerful because they can. They can essentially control the price by just turning on the taps are turning off the tops. The issue I think is not so much all that pre. It's just that. I mean, if you're looking for something that's going to end this recovery sanctions on Saudi Arabia, oil spiking one hundred and fifty even in the short term that do it. Yeah. So there are other considerations and we've kind of tied our hands. Can I want to go back to the Trump administration's unfolding response? Is it sometimes the case based on your experience that obviously your hands are tied a little bit and you haven't ally and your ally does something terrible, and there's a lot of pressure from political forces in your own country, even from your own party. Like the Republican senators mentioned to do something about it, but you want to in your comments. Trump has been very careful to say, well, there's been a strong denial. It was very, very strong denial. He believes strong denials, apparently. But then privately, you say to your ally who has done something bad, you send them angry words. And you yell at them. For example, secretary of state Pompeo apparently had a very short meeting. He was dispatched immediately by the president to go meet with NBS. What happens in that meeting somebody say, you know what? You put us in a terrible spot. You do this terrible thing. Knock it off, you know, we're gonna. Knock your block off next time. Don't do it again or do they hold hands and say, look, this will blow over. I'll take care of our opposition in the states of what happens there. My gut is that it's more the former. In this case, my God is that bump probably went into those meetings and he said, look, you guys need to understand. This is a big deal. This guy was an American resident. He's four, Washington Post columnist. This is snowballed. We need a fully transparent account of what happened, you know. And I think that particularly the Trump wouldn't meetings unusual. Usually, there are no takers at these meetings. There are other people involved. It's very rarely, literally one on one. And so there would be very unlikely to say something. That could get back which suggested that he had in some way, given a green light. So both for reasons of propriety which wouldn't be the right thing to say, but also just politically, he would be making sure that he didn't say something that would leave him vulnerable to being seen as having given a green light. So I think that's probably what they said in that, my guess is the Saudis are absolutely stonewalling in the sense that they are absolutely denying any knowledge involvement because if they show any crack on that from that point of view, I'm sure they think would be a disaster.

"I think chief Justice Roberts represents the best hope for the court that maybe he's a conservative, don't confuse him with a moderate that Justice Kennedy sometimes was, and Justice Roberts has been in the vanguard. Of of campaign finance decisions holding it the first amendment preventive campaign, finance, regulation, citizens United, and he's also try to eliminate racial preferences in any number areas of a law. But I think more important than those rulings eighties possible that much as he did in Bush in the ObamaCare ruling. He might place the institutional needs of the court above particular decisions likely, no. I wanted to ask you actually a bit because I thought your portrait of of Justice Roberts was interesting and nuanced on the one hand and 'institutionalised. But there are also questions about how much of it is about his own personal reputation as opposed to the courts reputation and how he wants to be viewed historically. But also I thought, well, first of all you, you report on the extraordinary tensions between Justice. Roberts in in and Neil Gorsuch was the last Justice to be put on the court by Donald Trump really seems like no love lost there. And. Although he's not several several several rags at the court, I'm not telling you clerk, Justice, whomever, but a lot of folks will say that Justice worse, it just performed the impossible that he's unified the courthouse. So they all can't stand him. It's a bit exaggerated, but it's more than rookie hazing, you would not expect Justice scores edge to be the one who they'll go out, you know, for a beer with a way to beers of wrong that I should mention beer. Sorry, what? What is it? About course, it's that that inspires that animosity bullet, a China shot at some the court, the court functions by seniority. He is important and he's the rookie and he came in there. Guns blazing at argument at conference. He just the the chief of the very first conference, the private meeting of the justices that only they attend, not even author. And shortly after Gorsuch was confirmed, the chief invited into the verse conference and. Of course, it said, I'm not up to speed on cases. We haven't done ethics reviews on them, and I have to take I ever prior engagement taking one of my daughters on a college tour and that annoyed the chief u. justifiably. So because he figured the press would get wind of it. And we write about the sort of nonsense the court and we did. I think you're quite right in in describing Roberts his own con concerns about his place in history and about the courts institutional prestige. But the two aren't at odds with each other, but make no mistake. I report in the book that a few years ago Roberts was going to lunch with some clerks at one of them ask quite innocuously how you like the job and and to the clerk surprise. The chief said something more than you know, it's great honor being the seventeenth. Just she seventeen chief Justice in history. He said, you know, they'll. Only be one, John Marshall, the chief who served at the beginning of the nineteenth century for more than three decades and is considered the most important Justice in the history of the court. He says, you know, only Marshall had the chance at greatness. I was born in the wrong ura and I thought that was a telling example this chief wants to be great. And I think he may ironically had the opportunity in many ways. Cavenaugh is the anti Gorsuch. He's a guy who's affable seems to get along with everybody. And I was struck by first of all his swearing in where you had Ruth Bader Ginsburg and and just as briar sitting there, Justice, Thomas, all attending his swearing in and the initial reports of his first his first case Elaine, a Justice Kagan, and he were getting along famously and yukking it up after the oral arguments. Canelo is a creature of Washington. He pretty much left town only to go to college and law school, and he has relationships with most of the members of the court, and he and Roberts briefly served together five recall the dates correctly. Elena Kagan when she was dean and Harvard Law School hired Brett to teach there. Brady's popular guy in Washington, even among journalists, have heaven forbid Gorsuch was a out of town or and just doesn't do as well with people. So it doesn't surprise me at all that cavenaugh showed what he showed. What did what? What shocked me was his performance of that press conference. That's at that some oneal swearing in..

"But you know, your mom was always a guy with independent mind. Shimon was of two newspapers, and so that was fine twice for taking an off the ducks lines when he was a 'cause he called for the the government to Mudgene allies, religious hobby, stubborn. And he said that there's too much problem destroying the comfy and we are the twenty first century. He was fired. He had similar article and another people news fired and about two years ago, he spent a year establishing a new TV station in Bahrain called out of TV, and that TV station aimed for twenty four hours was shut down within twenty four hours because one of the shows they had they brought about rainy opposition guy from London on the show, and they. Shutdown that paper that TV station, Jamal was banned from writing by the Saudi government in little published by the ministerial of information was sick later than publishing only speakers banning him. And another gentleman who resides now in exile in London, banning them from writing and any paper on even tweeting. And he found that very insulting and I think he starts planning to leave Saudi Arabia after that college as a the theory that the original plan was to lure kashogi to Saudi Arabia and detain him there, but perhaps not kill him and that in the end that was not successful. So they manage. They had this opportunity at the consulate and his estan bowl and that, but it went awry somehow. Do you give credence to that or do you think this was always intended as an assassination? It's possible. No, I would. That's probably that's what they wanted. But the big. Question Mark, what would they have runs the doctor with them? Yeah, that's chilling. That was a chillier. Retail, let's write. This is part of the team that flew in from from Saudi Arabia into Istanbul. They included a forensic doctor if so, that's a big question Mark, but I don't know. It's a, it's a possible feeli-. I think the Saudis probably leaked to the press because it was published yesterday by two British newspapers, and there's all this probably threat to leak it that way. And let me ask you about what you think the the reaction will be and what kind of diplomatic repercussions the Saudi government may may pay. I mean the the initial reaction from the US government was a little muted and it's taken a few days before President Trump made some strong statements. Do you think that that ultimately because of the import. Sense of Saudi Arabia in the region as a bulwark, against Iran, as the wealth of the Saudi government. The important position it plays in our geopolitics that at the end of the day, we'll go back to business as usual, or do you think that this is some kind of a turning point that will really have important implications for the relationship going forward in normal circumstances, but this will be a turning point, but under this White House, I'm not sure you know, this is the most unorthodox administration ever and Trump doesn't. It's difficult to predict his reaction. He has lots of hopes and I think he said that yesterday on TV somebody portrait of that, we don't want to lose business and the and stuff like that. So it looks as Saudi Arabia as a piggy Bank, but he can get the money and create jobs in the US. You probably would not care much about one more journalists to being killed. His rhetoric against journalists, probably encouraged us all. Just to do it because probably thought the journalists from hits journalists and they would not to act if we kill one drums. Well, that's a, that's a fascinating point. Just final question, call it when you met with him and we're smoking cigars at your house. If you weeks ago was, did he express any anxiety or concern about his welfare? He was about to fly as Sam bowl to pick up these documents so he can marry his fiancee. Was there any? Did he have any hint that he might endanger? Okay. No, I think many people who run away from exile, Middle East stumble, a London are becoming refuge for many of them not only as lamas. I mean, there's some Egyptian security and left wing activists are take your in stumbled. So I think that's why fought he felt safe and Turkey. Because many political, if you were residing stumbling, whether they're from u. e. or from Egypt on from Saudi Arabia and other countries in the region. So no, I don't think he was prohibitive or was cares of going to cattle..

"On elsewhere this week, we're going to be talking about Romania where an attempt to ban same sex marriage seems to have backfired pretty spectacularly, Alex. What's up here? Yes. So the Romanian constitution describes marriage between two spouses and that's led members of the conservative actions and Romanian the orthodox church to try to make the constitution say that between a man and a woman, the leaders that be over there in Romania decided to hold a referendum last weekend to make that a thing and it did not go as planned note. I thought it was gonna pass. They were confident and then moso the orthodox church spent a ton of money. The government spent a ton of money holding this referendum. It was this huge thing. They're advertising it as a big, get out the vote thing, fifty million dollars and not enough people even showed up for the referendum to be counted as legitimate. Like pass. It didn't even have enough to count to even register, and let's be clear. They tried to do everything to make this count. So they made the extended the voting period from one to two days, they dropped the threshold to make it binding from fifty to thirty percent, and literally one guy show up and we'll pass this right, and it was like twenty to twenty. One percent of people showed up to vote, which meant matal. And so after that, it seems that the government was like, fuck it, and the introduced legislation to allow explicitly same-sex partnerships dot marriages, but civil union. So the ruling party basically like steak their political claim legitimacy on this ban referendum and it went down spectacularly horribly. Why maters wet? Well, shit. So now they're literally trying to push through the exact opposite legislation and trying to get legalize same-sex unions in Romania is a country that's been very anti-lgbt q. rights for time, and. A lot of these proposals to allow same sex unions have failed in the past. So I'm not too confident this will, but still what a one eighty. I mean, this is a massive turnaround, and frankly, a pretty big win for LGBTQ community remained. It also speaks to something important about how we understand Europe, right? There's a a stylized divide in Europe analysis between former Soviet bloc states non-self you'd block stats, right, right. And typically and this is generally accurate. Former Soviet bloc states are are more conservative on social issues on the whole Russia's of Yesler. The leading example on the leading propagator because the orthodox church had a lot of that has to do with inflow and not only yeah, and a lack of internals ation of modern liberal norms right when you're only been a liberal democracy for short period of time, comparatively speaking, you don't have this deep commitment to quality as a moral value, liberal quality, not whatever the Soviets thought equality. We've had liberal democracy here for a while. We only pretty recently same. Sex marriage as you know constitutional, but we'll let to see change in attitudes, right? And I think that's what this vote. This referendum vote really showed is that the government and the orthodox church really thought that they had a finger on the pulse of public sentiment and they were clearly wrong. Nobody showed up for this vote and they seem to have suddenly realized people are actually supportive of LGBTQ rights. We should maybe pay attention to that. And so again, like you said, Alex, even though this may not actually pass because of all kinds of issues with pushing through legislation in the Romanian government, cultural norms are changing. And so that alone is a really, really powerful and big win for the humidity draws. The good news story. Yes, actually, we did good news and so that's it for us this week. I wanna thank our producer bird Pinkerton and I want to encourage all of you to rate subscribe and review worldly on apple, Stitcher soundcloud or anywhere else..

"So one of the things that adds to the mystery of all this as we know that there was a fifteen man team coming in from Saudi Arabia to Turkey that morning, they came on two separate planes. They didn't hotels nearby the consulate and looks like they went into the consulate that day before arrive and possibly left than those fans agendas talking about. We don't know exactly what they did while they were there, but we do know that they left for I in separate planes one to Cairo wanted to buy before. They both went to Riyadh Saudi's capital, but all of the same day, right on the same day. She had this fifteen men team and we say team like the Turkish officials, and I think the New York Times has actually verified their identities. These are just like random guys office. These are these are Saudi security, right in senior intelligence like operatives and one's an autopsy expert. So there's your mystery. You had this to plane team fifteen men who fly in for one day all happen to go to the Saudi consulate on the same day that show g goes missing. And then fly out. The same day. Right. And so Turkish investigators essentially believed that he was killed there in the consulate. We don't know. He could still technically be alive, but it looks pretty grim right now. It seems highly likely that he was killed in the consulate and that they smuggled his body out somehow. Again, it's also possible they could have just smoked him out alive and taking them back on these plans. We don't know. But as of now, the Saudis have provided zero proof of life. There's no video of him no statement, anything like that to prove that he's still alive and all they provided are these blanket denials. We had nothing to do with this and no explanation whatsoever. The actual consulate security footage has suddenly gone missing enter officials. Bloom thing. Back on one of those planes bacteria. And to me, the evidentiary cherry on top is a US intelligence intercept. The we learned about last night that when public that suggests that this was an order from the top NBS himself to take the sky and I believe exfiltrated him and US intelligence. Again, according to the report that we are last night believes that something went wrong in the exfiltration of duck shin process, and they killed him, right? So here's the big deal. This sounds really wild, right? Like it sounds like something out of a spy film. Absolutely. But it's actually part of a larger pattern of of Saudi government behavior, particularly under s. since he took over power, he's really been cracking down on all forms of dissent. He's been ruthlessly like disappearing and imprisoning activists. He remember we did an episode a while back about im- rounding up like a bunch of prominent. Saudi businessmen and really influential figures. Luckily because they are prominent and rich and famous, they were imprisoned in the Ritz Carlton, and you may have heard about this reform that he did to allow women to drive while the women who led the movement demanding the right to drive. Many of them have been arrested and jailed by MB s like this is what the reform push looks like. It's a power consolidation mast by this kind of thing. And I believe they've also objected people from other countries, right? This is not the first time this has happened. This is actually as far as we know at least the third time they have gone to in one instance Jordan, and in one instance, the United Arab Emirates UAE and basically call it rendered right. Remember used to be extraordinary rendition back during the Bush administration basically means illegally kidnapping someone from one country and taking them to another country to be interrogated or imprisoned. And so they've done this rendition where they've stolen people who are Saudi citizens, but who were living abroad, usually an exile because they know they're being targeted and smuggled them on planes very specifically back to Riyadh and they've never been heard from again or they show up in prison. Were they also lured to the seas or consulates and picked up? No, it wasn't explicitly like that..

"Network, Zach beach, I'm here with out sward of gen Williams. Hello, everybody. Today. We're gonna talk about a mysterious disappearance that has people around the world really troubled. That's the disappearance of Jamal Kaci a prominent Saudi dissident and columnist for the Washington Post. We're talking about what we know about his case and what it means in the broader scope of global politics and for how we understand Saudi Arabia. But first gen, let's talk a little bit more about who she is. He's this Saudi journalist who is a dissident. He's been really critical of the regime. He wrote for this newspaper called El Watan in Saudi Arabia and in recent months and in the last like you're so he seen his fellow journalists. Bloggers have other dissidents and activists be jailed and disappeared by the regime. So he fled to the United States is moving in. Genu-, and he's also been writing a column for the Washington Post uses platform in the post to be quite critical of the Saudi regime. And this was coming at a time late last year, especially when people were quite excited about Mohammed bin Salman, the prince who leads country and the reform that he was putting forward about helping women drive or opening up movie theaters. And so he's asked on a BBC show November twenty seventeen. And he's asked about these reforms. You have been calling for a long time. Now for reform in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, we now see a man at the top who appears determined to deliver on reform. You delighted with what you're seeing in the Saudi capital, a mice Holland throughout the show would conflicting messages. Yes, I am fully them, but I'm also what it fund motor oil. So his argument there is that while reform in theory is good in practice, what Mohammed bin Salman or MVS's called is doing is really more of an authoritarian power consolidation, a move towards one man rule as such g calls. And we've said this on the show before we think this is the view that smarter Middle East analysts have taken, but plenty of people, especially in the popular press, have been willing to buy 'em Bs ornament that he's fixing and reforming south. Saudi Arabia and rooting out corruption and empowering women. But Petrosky was the kind of guy who was not willing to let that propaganda line go publicly. Right? And so then his public life kinda got wrapped up in his private life. So she is engaged to be married to a Turkish woman. He went to the Saudi consulate Instanbul to paperwork for that marriage. He was putting his time between Turkey and the United States. Right, exactly. And so he goes and they say, basically come back in a couple of days to process forms, and then he goes back on October. Second with John, say outside, and after he goes in, that's the last time that we've seen him. This is the part of the story that hits me personally really hard because she waited outside for ten hours for him. Just hoping you shop. I'm getting married and a few weeks now and it's just like, I can imagine really cute -ly what that must have been like for her. And so the Turkish officials have footage that shows. 'cause show Jay walking in to the front door of the Saudi consulate. And there's no footage that anyone can find him ever walking out. He is just completely vanished. Nobody's hurt for him. His fiancee hasn't heard from him. The Washington Post hasn't heard from him. And so all this other can flurry of activity started to happen really quickly. You have the Saudi consul general there in stumble suddenly in the middle of all of this calls all the Turkish staff who work at the Saudi consulate and tells them to take the rest of the day off. Everybody go home to clear out. You have big black vans driving away from the consulate. And then in the past few days, oh, these more really disturbing details of come out that really points to that. There's really no other possible option at this point. Besides that Saudi Arabia was involved in either disappearing him meeting kidnapping him and smuggling him on planes back to Saudi Arabia or killing him there in the consulate..
