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

"jamal khashoggi" Discussed on Post Reports
"October the second that is the day win smoker show G. walked into a consulate in Istanbul and he didn't come out and what do we know about what happened to him. There eventually we came to learn that he was dismembered by a group of Saudi agents and his body was removed and to this day we do not know where that body is and it's important to point out that Tamaki was a columnist for the post and and that is widely believed that he was killed in that consulate because of his open criticism of the Saudi Arabian royal family the the CIA has determined with medium to high confidence that the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman ordered cookies killing that has been something that has has been a stain on the effective leader of Saudi government and his relationships all around the world. It has been a stain among the European leaders. The whole house will join me in condemning the killing of Jamal Khashoggi in the strongest possible terms has been harshly condemned and in the United States in leaders in Congress the murder of Kashogi is in atrocity and an affront to humanity and the days after his disappearance members of Congress both sides of the aisles besides the Congress demanded information and dedicated ourselves to holding perpetrators accountable and and Republicans as well. NBS The crown prince is a wrecking ball. I think he's complicit in the murder Mr Shoghi to the highest level level possible. I think the behavior before the Kashogi murder was beyond disturbing and I cannot see him being a reliable partner to the United Yard states for the past year Mohammed bin Salman has been quiet when it comes to Kashogi at least until this week when sixty minutes aired aired an interview in which he fully denied any involvement with the killing absolutely not this was a heinous crime. Mike and I take full responsibility as a leader in Saudi Arabia especially since it was committed by individuals working for the Saudi government. What does that mean. Can you take responsibility when a crime is committed against Saudi citizen by officials working for the Saudi government as a leader. I must take responsibility ability that this was a mistake and I must take all actions to avoid such a thing in the future. Eleven officials have been standing trial in Saudi Arabia since since January. The kingdom has not named any of the defendants and the trial is taking place behind closed doors. There's very little that we're allowed to learn about the names names and identities what we do know is a top adviser to NBS Kettani who the United States believes has awesome responsibility for the murder and has actually sanctioned is not one of the eleven and so there have already been a lot of criticisms about how it's being conducted the lack of transparency and whether or not it has the scope that the international community believes it should have given at least as the US intelligence community understanding that this went all the way to the top so what was the international response like after Khashoggi's death and after it became clear that Mohammed bin Salman was very likely involved in it. The the international response was widespread condemnation. This is not something that happens very often. You do not have someone who is a US resident who is a columnist for a permanent US newspaper being killed for the things that they have written it is it was widely condemned and even inside the trump administration instauration president trump made a number of remarks at the outset saying that this looked like a total cover up and it looked like a grisly salie murder and at the at the original outset it was not downplayed original concept it was carried out poorly and the cover up was one of the worst in the history of coverups. It's very simple bad. Deal should have never been thought of somebody really messed up and they had the worst cover ever and we're should've understaffed is at the deal stamp what they thought about it because whoever thought of that idea. I think he's in big trouble and they should be in big trouble. Shortly after the death and after the immediate outrage the trump administration made a calculated decision and that decision was that they were going to preserve IRV the US Saudi relationship look Saudi Arabia's that have really great ally. They've been one of the biggest investors maybe the biggest investor country that they are doing doing hundreds of billions of dollars worth of investments and so many jobs so many jobs thousands and thousands of jobs not only that they were also going to preserve the relationship the president trump his son-in-law jared Kushner and his secretary of state at cultivated with with the crown prince this young thirtysomething leader who was supposed to bring Saudi Arabia into a new fold even though Bambi s had been significantly damaged by this and by all of the accusations about his role in the murder they were going to hang by with him and president trump and secretary of state. Mike Pompeo took two different paths about how to rehabilitate that image for president trump he was probably in. May really the most honest actor in this whole situation he said from the get-go the Middle East is a messy place and Saudi Arabia buys a lot from the United States and that's something that shouldn't be easily squandered when you take a look into rough part of the world. It's a it's a nasty place. It's a nasty part of the world but if what happened happened and if the facts checkout it's something that's very bad at the same time. They have been a very very good ally of ours. They've been helping us a lot with respect to Israel. They've been funding a lot of things and he said I'm not one of those stupid. People who says I'm not just going to not do business with Saudi Arabia and so from that point on he set the tone which was the United States is going to continue its relationship relationship with Saudi Arabia Secretary of State. Mike Pompeo took a different route pompeo made these soaring promises that the United States was going to get to the bottom of this that would be held accountable. They're going to figure out what has gone on and there have already taken significant steps of capability. He frequently cited visa restrictions on twenty two people suspected of involvement in Jamal Kashoggi's murder and every time he's asked about a year out he says the same thing we are going to get to the bottom of we're not ruling out future steps but here we are a year out and no one has been charged charged with their involvement in the murder we still do not have Jamal Kashoggi's body and beyond that there have not been further author punishments other than saying that you can't travel to the United States and let's be real anybody who's involved in a high profile murder of this nature sure is not going to return to the United States. It's just it's just laughable and I think that the tack that President Trump and Mike Pompeo have taken has kind of given a cue to the rest of the world like you look at the international outcry that happened right after Caccia Staff and the I widespread criticisms of NBS and then you look at how he was greeted at the g twenty this summer where he was no longer this persona non grata that he he is beginning to be like back in the good graces of world leaders absolutely the G. Twenty seven it was a great example of the the key western powers powerful countries getting close to him taking photographs with him in the case of South Korea's signing memorandums of understanding with with him worth billions of dollars. it was an important moment is rehabilitation in the coming weeks. We might see a further moment of rehabilitation as the Saudi Arabia the plans it's Davos in the desert when like an annual conference and brings into world leader is and business leaders enrich people and influential people and absolutely take their annual investment conference and last year. A lot of companies were spooked a lot of CEOS pulled out according to a attendees list reviewed reviewed by the Washington Post. A number of blue chip firms are back in and so we've already seen it. It's not the first time but the re normalization formalization of MBBS is coming and what do you think is driving. This renomination is that that people just ultimately we don't think that they're going to be more answers on Kashogi staff or an ability to pin down and es more than he's already been pinned down that people don't really care about that death that political and business relationships with Saudi Arabia just so advantageous that they can't be sacrificed. Yeah I mean we are talking talking about Saudi Arabia. We're talking about one of the world's largest producers of oil. It's what drives the global economy and so to the extent that Saudi Arabia and its leadership is inconvenient that can become inconvenient for business leaders as well and so there was an incentive to go business as usual if NBS was not going to be removed and the US made clear from the beginning that it was not going to make an effort to recommend pressure or lobby the Saudi rulers to remove NBS with so with that with that settled it was going to return turned business as usual so even though M B S has come out pretty unscathed from this honestly a year later do you. I think they're a long term ramifications for him and for Saudi Arabia from the aftermath of Kashogi Sta. Yeah a number of analysts sir divided on this. I mean some say. NBS has come out unscathed the trump administration has successfully rehabilitated him on the international stage others say not so fast they look at the US Saudi relationship as something that has been tacitly or at least fully in some cases endorsed by both parties in the United States and now the U. S. Saudi relationship has become a source of partisan tension. There's a lot more questions about the US Saudi relationship. There's a lot more questions about the billions in dollars of arms sales the United States send over to Saudi Arabia the lot more questions about scrutiny of the US support for the Saudi coalition in Yemen. Those things have been tested in ways that they've never been tested before and so there is some analysts are looking at this and saying while NBS is temporarily okay. Hey the U. S. Saudi relationship might have been permanently damaged..

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 sent 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 the time magazine selected Jamal Khashoggi who in reality was in fact, pretty radical on politics had a longtime history of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood very much in favor of more radical Islam in the Middle East, not less radical Islamic militia, certainly no moderate. But since he was word for being 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 they're honoring the folks over at the capitol gazettes, which was a newspaper. You'll remember those attacked in Virginia. Now, it turns out the capital gazette was not in fact attacked by Trump supporter. It was not attacked by somebody who hated the media because President Trump was not fond of the media was attacked 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 that journalists all over the world are under assault specifically because of President Trump I do appreciate how there are. No journalists were 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 of 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 doesn't mean we shouldn't worry about the Jamal Khashoggi haste. But again, this is the media trying to play itself up who else was was honored. While Maria Rosa was editor I believe in Russia who is indicted and while loan Cal SU who reporters who were convicted. So the idea is that there's a war on truth, but won't be in the folks over at the capital gazette with pokes who've been targeted by foreign dictatorships seems like a very bizarre thing for time to accept that all of these journalists wanna see themselves as firefighters were running to put out the fire of the Trump administration. It's very silly. It doesn't make any sense. But that's okay. It's just another indicator that our journalist classes wildly disconnected from the needs. And the wants of the American people. Now, speaking of folks are completely disconnected from the needs. And wants of the American people yet continue to gain credibility every day with that left left-wing press the women's March has now been revealed for what it is which was an intersectional scam. That was at least one foot in anti-semitism at all time. So the women's March remember they were nearly made the person of the year last year by time magazine because this was the upswing of women ever new movement. A new movement of women everywhere that never materialized intending thing concrete except for an angry March led by deplorables, actual deplorables, like to make a Mallory and Linda Sarsour now, there's an article over a tablet magazine talking about how deeply rooted the anti semitism was in the women's March does on November twelfth two thousand sixteen a group of seven women held a meeting in New York they'd never worked together before.

"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.

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.

"Low thirty one chance for some flurries. Tomorrow butter coating of snow high near forty forty right now in Bethesda forty one at Reagan national relief fund, Washington, small L Liri O'Connor show. AM six thirty. I'm going to be honest. I really I'm trying to figure out about this story. Why? I hate to put it that way. Because you know, this brutal murder of Jamal Khashoggi is despicable horrible. It's obscene. It's obscene as all of the horrible brutal murders that have been carried out by regimes like Saudi Arabia's for decades and decades and decades. And we haven't had a United States senators standing up and demanding that the current administration completely changed our relationship with that regime, not to the level that they have over Jamal Khashoggi. Here's the here. This has got to be strongly condemned by the administration strongly condemned. And then there's got to be a price to pay for what has happened. I know that they have to have exactly the same intelligence that we have. And there's no way that anybody with a straight face say there's any question about what has happened. So listen, I have no doubt that Senator Graham is telling the truth. I think that it probably was incredibly compelling evidence. That suggested that the crown prince Saudi Arabia was involved in the murder of Jamal kashogi. And. Before him. The crown prince of Saudi Arabia was responsible for the murders of untold people for the crime of showing too much skin on the beach or being homosexual or being a woman who was raped, but there weren't enough witnesses to prove the rape. And so that woman was murdered and stoned to death for committing adultery. This is what happens in these countries. And that said sadly Saudi Arabia's probably are the best bet we've got over there with regard to an Arab ally in the Middle East. Obviously Israel is our number one ally. But is this new didn't Franklin Roosevelt called Joe Stalin? Uncle joe. Because we needed him in World War Two defeat. Hitler, didn't Richard Nixon. Get friendly with Mao Tse Tung, the dick Nixon didn't know that Mao had been responsible for the murder of untold millions of Chinese, and I am not trying to diminish that it's horrible. But I also recognize that we live in a world where it's complicated. Sometimes the international relationships that we form. And what's best for America needs to be brought into focus here, by the way. And again when I say, why don't I care about this? I'm not suggesting that I don't care about the Myrtle Jamal kashogi. But, but the fact of the matter is this universal praise of this man as some kind of martyr on behalf of of the first amendment and American journalism is a little overwrought. I mean, let's just be real here. First of all, yes, he was an American resident he he he was resident of this country for about a year. For about a year. Okay. And to call him, a journalist is not really telling the whole story. The man was an activist on behalf of Islamism. Political Islam, which I read many many many columns that he wrote for the Washington Post. His byline is up there. All right. It's pretty clear that he was in full support of political Islam. And to that end. He was a full throated supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood in organization that I believe and most Americans believe. Responsible indirectly connected to radical Islamic terrorism. I'm not trying to diminish his murder, which was brutal. But at the same time, let's tell the whole story and to just describe him as American journalist Jamal kashogi is at at. I'll be generous is not entirely truthful. And it's for a reason because the media their argument here is let's have the narrative be Trump doesn't care about the murder of an American journalist. That's what they're trying to do. When we stand up and say, okay, we're outraged by this. It's an abomination and America, the Trump administration must do something and say something as you just heard Senator Graham say there the question is what what are we supposed to do? We won't do business with Saudi Arabia, and we're going to cut off ties with them until this guy is removed. How does that happen? Exactly. How does one remove the crown prince of Saudi Arabia who executes that order literally? I mean, this is a brutal monarch his lasted decades by being brutal within Saudi Arabia and without. Yeah. Think the crown prince has Agra's going. Okay. Well, when you put it that way, Lindsey Graham, I'm outta here. No, it'll get bloody. And we don't know who replaces him, and let's not forget this is the guy who came to office or came to the throne. I should say by putting members of his own family in jail. Accusing them of corruption and he may have been right about that in some of the first things that he did once he took over the throne was to loosen up laws. Like, hey, we're going to let women drive cars now. I mean, how do we really know what's going on? In that very mysterious government. And what are we supposed to do? Do. We have a very good track record when we step up and say to Middle East countries. Hey, we don't like your leader. Get rid of him. It doesn't always work art in our favor Fe, and Woodbridge we're gonna start with you. You're on wwl. Oh. Oh, hi. I wanna say that. There is a limited. So how much we can interfere in other countries? You know, this this man, Mr.. He was. American citizens. Been a. Residents illegal. But nevertheless, he was a Saudi citizen and. And so he must from that country. I haven't seen such a big deal made about even Americans who've been brutally murdered abroad.

There's any direct evidence that links the Saudi Crown prince to the murder of Jamaica Shoghi, can you confidently tell us for children that he was not involved in that order. Sitting in an unclassified setting. Here's what I can say. I have read every piece of intelligence that is in the possession of the United States government. And when it is done when you complete that analysis. There's no direct evidence linking him to the murder Jamal Khashoggi. That is a accurate statement is an important statement. And it is the statement that we are making publicly today, why isn't important statement of all signs point to it in the intelligence community widely believes that even though you don't have these smoking gun that he was responsible about he's got the oil because he's guy and he's a good high, fiber and Mike Pompeo. You remember, Mike Pompeo ran the CIA. So was like, well, but you ran the organization that is pretty sure he did it did the CIA conclude with high confidence that he was involved can't comment on intelligence matters conclusions. I didn't do when I was the director. I'm not gonna do it now because you've seen all the reports in the media about them. I've seen lots of reports in the media wolf, they often are untrue. Does this one tells you it's true? He did write the op-ed for the Wall Street Journal explaining is much of his thoughts as he could saying that the Saudi partnership in relationship is vital to US interests. Here's the promise transcripts are coming out of a conversation that was had between the twin one of the guys involved in the murder and the haven't been salmon. Crown prince. Yeah. And that's a problem. And the the evidence is coming out into the public sphere now. And as the evidence comes out, it just becomes more and more clear that he did with it. And the question is really a political one in the United States. They're obviously is one for DNA to deal with the grief of the family of Tshimanga show. But. The political question. The US is why are we doing this? And is it is it really that important to continue to say to the Saudis who are not going to park their money anywhere else. I mean, the the idea as well, we'll lose all this business and the price of oil will go up with. Well. I mean, they could do that for any reason. That's just because we just because we let them get away with murder. Literally, this time doesn't mean in another couple of weeks. He doesn't try to get away with something else. And then you can do whatever you want. I don't think that previous administrations would have done this and worried about the consequences because where are they going to go? They're not going to go. Do it a nuke military arms deal somewhere else? They can't do it. It's not they've already bought our systems they'd have to buy all brand new systems from the Russians that aren't as good. It wouldn't work. You can't you're gonna buy new jets. They don't work with the jets that they currently have they'd have to give all you have to start all over again. And in terms of of oil they have to sell their oil. Right. It's not like they're not going to sell their oil and they want to market, but their money, and they're not going to choose a market other than the United States to be safe and to make money in. They got it. They have to come clean, and you have to ask for further reform if they are going to be that close vanilla. And we're going to go Salam airplanes.

Former mayor of New York City and current attorney to the President Assad's Juliani a radio interview today, trashing, Robert Muller. Well, I think the special prosecutor stepped over the line out with the way he's intimidating people in order to tell what he believes is his version of the truth. You look at Mr. Manafort they've had them in solitary confinement for five to six months. I'd say and they have repeatedly questioned him, and they have told them they don't believe him. And they want him to give certain forms of evidence. That would implicate the president is Mr. metaphor says true. Mr. Manafort is accused of actually. Trying to get witnesses to change their story about him while he was actually already on when before they put him in jail awaiting sentencing now now he's been convicted before that they put them in jail before he went to trial because he was out there reaching out to witnesses and the trial trying to change your testimony. Really really going to really Paul Manafort is the hill you're going to die on Rudy Giuliani. Each one of those times he has told them I'm sorry. I can't tell you what you want to hear. So there's a point at which they're sending a terrible signal and ethical prosecutor would stop this pursue some line of of inquiry with other people affable. He's just saying what everybody else's said, there's no evidence that the president was involved in any kind of collusion about the election. Stories falling apart a little bit. What do you sit up? Oh, just because of everything Manafort. Just the idea that the the president and his the people around the president that story that all we there was nobody in the campaign that was involved with the Russians at all. Has changed completely here? Right. Every every every time they push back. The White House pushback or the or the, you know, the president's the Trump organization, whatever it is has pushed magazine, we were never involved. We were never involved. There's nothing. There's no shred of anything. You could say that all you want. But every day another ornament falls off at tree. They are not telling the truth about it.

Hi, I was wondering what you thought about Trump announcing to the department heads. He'd like them to cut five percent across the board. I wonder how much money that will say the US tax payer and why no one's talking about it. So you think Republicans should be touting that they should say look you keep us in power. We're going to help the president reduce the budget across the board. Oh, absolutely. And not only that is we should be eliminating multiple federal department. There's a lot of state departments. That are doing the same thing that these federal departments are doing every state has the department of education department of agriculture and the waste at the federal level isn't credible. And no one's talking about downsizing, the federal government, and reducing the cost to operate the federal government, and he announced that the other day and it's getting no play. And I'd just like to know why thanks Keith. Well is not getting a lot of play. Because of all the when in terms of the news coverage is because the news focuses on what they choose to focus about all of the great news in the economy with. Regard to jobs with regards a Wall Street with regard to prophets with regard to manufacturing. They're not paying any attention to that. Either key. Thank you for the call and the other beauty of what the president has done. Here is that he is bypassing congress. Congress can set the law. They can set their budget. They can appropriate funding, but the executive branch actually does do the spending. Right. They do the hiring. They do the actual operation of these federal agencies just because congress appropriates the money, it's not incumbent on the executive branch tax. We spend that money. Now. The problem is congress can't go back to their voters and say, hey, we've reduced the federal budget. We've reduced the federal deficit. We've reduced the size of the government because they haven't they haven't because they're terrified of a government shutdown. They're terrified that the handful of Democrats in the Senate that will halt the process and not let a budget or any appropriations go through unless they have their way. And they've decided in the leadership of the house and the Senate that it's better to keep things going. And it's been the president who has said I find find you say I'm going to spend that much guess what I'm not gonna and I want of my departments to figure out how to cut. However, we also need to see the president come through with those cuts. We need to see his departments actually deliver. That's yet to happen. How about Josh over in Meena, Wisconsin? Josh you're next up on the Mark Levin show. I'm Larry O'Connor. Larry. How are you? I'm good. I I'm concerned though. Because if the Democrats do get the majority in the house, this is going to be a rough two years, I have an idea as docking near St. caller. I said that a good idea that they should do is. They could show Detroit when it's rammed by businessman like Donald Trump say and Henry Ford in the strength that Detroit once had an what's democrat liberal takeover? And how it just falls into action in squalor and just show them side by side. Side, and then even better for my own state. I think they don't tell it enough. If you let politicians say you get Detroit if you let Republicans take over and have ideas, you get hawks Connie's dutiful jobs they were getting shots. And I wish they could tell that more and more more. And they don't. Yeah. And, you know, Josh, I'm glad you brought this up because I I love Wisconsin. And I think that your governor Scott Walker has done some great jobs, and it is incredible turnaround. What he's been able to achieve in that state. And of course, they all said that people would be fired and people would be starving in the streets. And no one will get an education, and it's been phenomenal. Yeah. We saw Wisconsin. I remember in Madison there will. Yes. Took on our capital, and we fought right Jordan and look at what we've been able to accomplish. That's right. Second half of the term of Donald Trump. If we fight the good fight and vote on November six it'll happen. Thank you. Josh. Thank you for the call. I appreciate it. Thanks for calling in to the Mark Levin show ya vividly remember those mobs taking over the capital occupying the capital of Madison during the early years of the Scott Walker governorship on that was back when I was working with Andrew Breitbart. Andrew Andrew got on a plane. The next day send us text message. I'm going to Madison in the winter in the southern California guy, the Andrew why are you going to Maddison look at what's going on there? Look at the mobs look at the riots look at the. Look Scott Walker needs US Republicans. Need us conservatives who are trying to bring sane rational governance to the state of Wisconsin need us. And he sure did go there, by the way, right next door to you there. Josh over in Michigan. This is a remarkable thing. You know, everywhere you go right now on cable news broadcast news all over the internet. Who do you hear about running for Senate this young upstart appealing good looking guy who's who's defying the odds and has a real chance to win? All you're hearing about is. This guy beta will Rourke bitter roof doesn't have a chance to win and Texas. Batur work is not going to win the Senate seat in Texas. And it's all made for television. We've seen this game before every two years every election. They tell us about the new rising star in Texas. Who's finally gonna take paint Texas blue, you know, when Hillary Clinton was deciding not to do any sort of pulling or appearances in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania, she did appearance in Wisconsin. Or michigan? She was actually at that time contemplating spending more money in Texas because she was so sure she was going to win, Texas and Georgia and Arizona, and she while she wanted to to this was going to be a transformative election with Hillary Clinton and the remaking of the map we hear this all the time. But it's not true. And meanwhile, in Michigan, there's this guy John James last poll there showed him in single digits now this guy running against Debbie stabber. Now. I mean, he he's a former military. Dick combat in Iraq. This guy is African American. This guy is conservative. This guy is right on all the issues here. I wanna play a little bit of of him. Because because this tells you exactly how the media is so corrupt because all they care about. With beta Rourke, it has to do with two things it has to do with forcing this fake narrative that the Democrats are really Texas is moving blue Texas is going to be a democrat state, Texas is not the same Texas because the democratic demographic changes because because of all of the radical conservative policies that have hurt that state, which they haven't I mean, people are flocking to Texas people are flocking to Texas because of the economy there, it's one of the only states that persevered through the eight dismal years of Barack Obama because they had Republicans in charge of that state. There's no way the people of Texas would reverse that trend, but also because they hate Ted Cruz. The media hates Ted Cruz because he's so good, so smart and so conservative so they're there. Puffins? This beta will work guy up. And meanwhile, listen, I got a little bit John James this really impressive guy in Michigan. Real leadership is.

"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..

"Rules and restrictions apply because they played everything in this life. Okay. Let's get to this. Saudi journalist, dissident type guy, Jamal Khashoggi what do we know? He's a Saudi guy. He worked for the Washington Post. He lives in the United States briefly, but he had worked previously with the Saudi Royal family, and he walks into the Saudi embassy in Turkey. He doesn't walk out. We also know that I think fifteen members of the Saudi government arrived in Turkey that day they, they left pretty quickly and there are claims that he was killed in the Saudi embassy and chopped up well, still alive. Doesn't sound great the way this is being spun by the mainstream media. First of all is that this is somehow Trump's fault. The Trump needs to do something about this Trump needs to get rid of our agreements with Turkey with regard to selling weapons hundred billion dollar arms deals, whatever as Saudi Arabia rather. So this is how it's being spun. He and the guy Jamal Khashoggi he's being spun as a lead. Left wing progressive liberal pro democracy, reformer guy against the Saudi Royal family, which is not willing to reform and is oppressive. The real truth is far more complicated than that. The first question that you have to ask yourself when you hear about this story is why am I supposed to care? Why am I supposed to care that the Saudi government took out this guy that took out this former. He formerly worked with them. I guess Jamal Khashoggi was aligned with other with another faction of the Saudi Royal family than the one that is currently in power under Mohammed bin Salman. So you know a guy whose political fortunes of changed has been killed by the Saudi government. Why am I supposed to care about that? I don't mean to sound callous or cold ordered or anything like that, but we know that the Saudi Royal family commits heinous acts all the time and has for decades and decades. We know that it's one of the most repressive regimes on earth. Why. Why am I supposed to care about this one? They do it all of the time. Mike question for those who would call us callous for asking that question is why don't you care about the the beheadings that are happening all the time, the clamping down on political dissidents. Why don't you care about that? Why is it this one in particular, I, I'm not. I don't really understand what new information is being conveyed by this killing of a dissident guy. Is there anything new if we had our arms deal with Saudi Arabia, two weeks ago, why would we change it now? It's not like the government has changed its stripes. If anything, the government is getting a little less repressive. They're liberalizing certain laws. They're letting women drive for the first time in a very long time. They're opening up certain movie theaters little little freedoms are being opened up even economic freedoms. They're now starting to do a little bit of business with Israel, and that is the biggest issue that's actually where this gets down to, and it shows that Jamal Khashoggi being put up by the left wing as this messianic figure. Or you know this, this progressive secular westerner is of was far from them. So what does this actually proved to me proves to me that if you pal around with jihadists, things aren't going to turn out very well, that's that's the only conclusion I can draw from this because we know that Jamal Kagi palled around with his Llamas for decades. And by the way, now the left now that we're pointing this out that this guy palled around with Islamist radicals even with some bin Laden. Now that people are pointing this out. The left is saying, this is a smear campaign by right wingers trying to defend President Trump's relationship with the Saudis. Vernon Trump didn't develop the US relationship with the Saudi Royal family. We've had it for a very long time, but to call a smear merchants, it's it's not the right wing, which is coming up with these connections between Khashoggi and terrorists in HAMAs terrorists in Asia terrorists like Osama bin Laden of this has been known for decades and actually it's left wing papers to horizon in Israel is reporting on all of this, so don't really buy any of that. What do we know? We know that Yamaoka shaggy was in his Llamas, he's he was a lifelong member of the Muslim Brotherhood. He favored radical aspects of the Muslim Brotherhood. We know that he was a regime insider as well. So not..

"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. The only time I've ever seen an unhinged mob of Democrats is when NPR runs out of totes. Thanks to Trump the GOP is pretty much the party of frenzied ram ops Trump supporters, pushing a woman out of yesterday's rally in Louisville..

"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. So they have to maintain the line. We knew nothing about this trying to figure out what happened. It's a terrible tragedy, whereas shocked as anybody else the whole. I mean, there's a bizarre element here, which is that holid- bin Salman Mohamed so months brother, who was the ambassador to the US. Many people have thought that when the crime prince becomes king, he collared will become the crown prince. They're that close. He was. Friend of Jamal Khashoggi. So the the, you know, that's as I said, the whole thing is there's a truly bizarre element to this where what the f..

"It may look good, you know, in copy in the press and so on. But in in actual fact, I mean, that's not what's going to affect change in the in in places like Saudi Arabia or other Middle Eastern countries where you have an authoritarian system. The US has many other tools at its disposal, and it should think of those rather than you know, symbolic gestures. Well, speaking of those tools, I'm seeing here now that US Senator Lindsey, Graham is saying that he believes Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman had US based journalist, Jamal Khashoggi murdered in the Saudi consulate, and that that soman has quote tainted his country. As a result. This is from the Associated Press Lindsey. Graham is saying that the crown prince has got to go and that he will not return to Saudi Arabia. While the prince is in power, Graham. Has also saying that he's been the biggest defender of the kingdom. But now he plans to quote sanction the hell out of Saudi Arabia that's from the Associated Press Steven, cook. What do you think. We'll Senator Graham is has been a interesting commentator on the Middle East over many years because he has been forthright in speaking out on human rights and democracy and democracy promotion, especially in places like Egypt, though he's been relatively more quiet when it comes to Saudi Arabia. Again, the kind of very difficult issue in position that American policymakers are in when it comes to the importance of Saudi Arabia and having a foreign policy that is more consistent with American values. It's clear that the apparent killing of Jamal shocked. She has moved him to be more critical and to include Saudi Arabia more forthrightly in his demonstrations of authoritarianism and human rights violations in in the region. The the real question is though whether the kind of things that Senator Graham is talking about a really going to have an impact. On the behavior of Saudi Arabia. Certainly, congress has a variety of tools. As you heard, Jeff flake talking about suspending arm sales to Saudi Arabia. There's the global Magnitsky act, which would make certain Saudis if they're sanctioned with it, unable to conduct business in the international financial system. But as we've seen from other cases of from Russia, in particular, this has not altered the behavior of of other countries. Well, we have a minute to go before the break and Bernard Haykal. I want to get your thought on this because as Stephen cook was saying, would Saudi Arabia's behavior change specifically the behavior from the crown prince or or or the king for as long as the president of the United States has shown that he does not necessarily have a bad word to say for authority and leaders in other countries, Russia, North Korea, Turkey. Well, look, I mean, the Saudis have in the past extradited or kidnapped if you like dissidents and brought them back to Saudi Arabia where they put them in prison, they, they're not in the habit of killing dissidents overseas. They've never done it as far as I know. And so this is completely out of character. And I think that certainly this will never happen again and and they should account for for it and they should. They should punish whoever's responsible for. But I don't think that the the congress has that kind of influence on in an ability to change Saudi behavior. Certainly not domestic politics and changing who's the leader in the kingdom? Well, we're speaking with Bernard Haykal. He's professor of near eastern studies at Princeton.

"The radio program, you find out what the world thinks about you in the issues that are important to you. We hopscotch around the globe talk to regular people just like you and me in the hot zones we hear their stories, and then hopefully, we can connect the dots. Very busy today as we broadcast from WLS radio studios in the great city of Chicago will be with you for the next couple of hours and for our podcast listeners. This is where we will be originating for the next couple of hours in a minute. We're gonna hear from one of our voices. And then later on this hour, we go into Istanbul Turkey. We have a story of either a hit job kidnapping or fake news, depending not only on which source. You're listening or reading or viewing. But also truly where you live for new listeners to the voice to America program. You will know what we do here on. On the shows we talked to a syndicate of voices around the globe. And we do this to offer an American audience, which is turned into a global audience. But this show was born out of nine eleven when nobody knew who Osama bin Laden was they couldn't pronounce al-qaeda, and we decided that we would say, well what information we've got is. Maybe they're based in Afghanistan were in Pakistan. So we started talking to people from Afghanistan and Pakistan just to hear what they had to say if that was ground zero. If that was where the story was originating. Let's hear what they have to say because it might be a little bit different than getting one hundred percent of our information from Washington DC or New York City and lo and behold have we learned an awful lot over almost the last fifteen to twenty years, we will continue to do that today on the curious state of Jamal Khashoggi is a Saudi national, but he was was or may still be a resident of the United States working for the Washington Post. He's a journalist, but more importantly to this story, of course, as he was a critic of the. Saudi governments and more curious. Of course is the story of the the new crown prince and who this man Mohammed bin Salman NBS who he is. And what he really stands for. Nobody knows a whole lot about it. But he's come to the United States, and they were lined up from an Silicon Valley and they loved them in Hollywood. And they loved him in Washington DC, and they loved him in New York City, and he's done this all over the world where you've got celebrities that are cozying up to him. You've got the celebrity entrepreneurs that are lining up with him. All the tech guys all the cool guys. Even the grandfatherly guys, you know, like Richard Branson out of the United Kingdom, for instance. I mean, they're all trying to get a piece of the action because we do know that Saudi Arabia's a nation, of course, that is closely aligned with the United States, and if you're closely aligned with the United States gives you tremendous clout there also an oil-rich nation, which gives you tremendous clout, they are also politically influential throughout that region with their relationship with the countries say like Egypt or Iran and they're involved in. Lots of wars, and there's the oil and OPEC, and because all of this what we are seeing is is very curious. And now, we have a case that is rocking. The world is is like the Brett Cavanaugh US supreme court deal. Everybody is focused in on the story. What happened to this, man? Who is this man Jamal kashogi? Nobody knew who he was five days ago. Now, everybody knows who he is most people didn't even know who the prince was a lot of people did. But no a lot of people don't listen to this program. You certainly know. And of course, we will try to offer perspectives not only from the region, but we will go into Turkey, and we will find out from one of our voices in Istanbul where allegedly this murder this kidnapping this dismember. It all happened over the last few days, and we'll also find out what the world thinks about Donald Trump's response in America's Congress's response to Saudi Arabia. A lot of tentacles story. It will not fade quickly. We.
