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?
"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

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.

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.

"Twenty six twenty twenty one from slaves. The gist i might ask. The senate today voted to proceed with an impeachment trial of former president. Donald trump however senator rand paul of kentucky issued an objection on the grounds that it was unconstitutional to do so forty. Four of his fellow. republicans agreed. This is not a majority position among scholars let alone and ninety percent consensus among experts. Not even consensus among 'em reasonably informed people for instance. Take nixon judge walter nixon. He was literally disqualified after conviction. In the senate. There's presidents it happened before. But also think about the other. Nixon richard mille house. What if the day. Before an impending vote of conviction heat have just said now. I resign then. The senate couldn't say well fine but we're also going to disqualify you from holding office. Their hand would be stayed. I just wanted to say hand would be stayed. It seems a pretty large flaw. If the only way to impose disqualification is for those two pigheaded to resign or maybe some who really think they'll win the conviction vote. What if they resigned the second after the conviction vote took place. They could run again by the logic of well. Every republican senator except mitt romney. Lisa murkowski susan collins. Ben sasse pat toomey good on them. Also at issue supposedly was the constitutionality of having senator pat lay. He preside over conviction trial and not the chief. Justice of the united states is not specified. Who would preside if the removal of the president isn't on the table and chief justice roberts really wants no part of this of course. Let's say roberts said fine. I'll do it. And he was the guy who they tabbed to run the trial. I'm sure forty four. Republican senators say no. It should be something like pat lahey. Or i don't know maybe it's their anti italian american bias shining through. Oh you saw pat. Lay all irish. No half italian. As italian is any senator including joe manchin who is course johm genie. This has been italian. American senators moment. No it hasn't. This has been mike talks about where we are in the upcoming trial of donald trump. There seems to be no real appetite for conviction among the majority of the republican senators but maybe if they heard the sentiment expressed here might change their mind. Video put together by the legal insecurity issues website. Just security what they've done is they've paired. Trump's words with protesters storming the capital gleefully echoing the very sentiment they heard from trump. Just repeating it back to the camera because you gotta get the word out on social. It's been reported that this video or one like it or maybe literally. This video will be played for the senators and this will put them in a tough position. It will make it hard for them to deny that there really was a connection between presidential words and writer action. The anti mike pence sentiment. You were hearing came right after. Trump tweeted out to twenty four. Mike pence didn't have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our country and our constitution and then people started calling for his lynching people started calling for his head. Maybe some of those forty five. Senator actually friends with mike pence lot of them said they were. Maybe some of them aren't really friends but don't like him being called a hold on. Let me check the transcript a bitch. They don't like that. Maybe they need a little show intel between the president's words and the protesters actions here they're outside the capitol telling whoever will listen who sent them plus was outside and this next clip is inside inside a congressional office. The far-right media personality. Who calls himself. Baked alaska picks up a phone and says he's going to call its hero donald trump. Let's tell trump no say we love. We love you bro. he'll be acne. What do you mean. We're fighting trump. Who knows if this will sway senators. Should it be presented in two weeks. Maybe some senators will be disturbed. Maybe some will be scared.

"And then try to blame it on us and all the evidence seems to point to crown prince mohammed bin salman as the person at the top who approved the murder but he continues to claim that he had no prior knowledge of this plot and it was just a case of some rogue actors who took things a little too far. Now that you've delve so deeply into this case. Is there any doubt in your mind that nbs had prior knowledge of the plot end in fact gave the order. Look i don't know that for a fact. But what i do know and i think what anybody knows. That has common sense. Right as you go k. Mrs mrs king deng right. This isn't even like a a president where you could have culpable ability right.

That we're gonna talk about an important film the dissident but also on your oscar win for your last film nicholas about doping in the russian sportsworld. I think people have a general sense of what the dissident is about. And so i guess my first question is how how's it doing in saudi arabia crushing at the box office there. I think it's It's in saudi arabia. The only way the film will make it into saudi arabia and light of not having a a global streamer is Through thumb drives Or some other illicit mean. Hopefully they'll be a lot of saudis on. Vpn finding ways to get the film. That was my poor attempt at an opening joke. Because we're gonna we're gonna be quite serious. We're gonna be quite serious here.

But it's the accurate one of washington post journalist. Jamal khashoggi and i. I was not prepared. For how overwhelmed. I would be I had multiple emotions by the time. The film was over including anger and sadness and confusion and i was very moved by when you when you finished it and put together do was a filmmaker. Are you so close to it that you don't have that feeling or when you finally put it together at least the full version of a draft. The whole two hours of it did you. And your team have a reaction to what you had produced The answer is yes In really the year and a half of making the film. I i grew so close to teasha ganga's jamal's fiance and to omar abdel the young saudi dissident living in montreal that Omar became like brother and sister And and not a became like a sister to me and am when you're telling their stories and essentially embedding with them In spending days weeks with them in their lives he becomes so emotionally invested in what they're going through.

"Welcome. This is the Ben Shapiro show. Got a lot to get to today. We'll talk about Brexit, which has hit a massive snag in France has government parlay with protesters. But we begin today with time magazine, which now has given itself an award and predictably enough time when the media really loves them some media persons of the year are all journalists because there's nothing really attracts Americans to journalists as much as journalists patting themselves on the back. Journalists actually run out of enough hands to Pat themselves the so who exactly is being honored. They call them 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 there are a bunch of different folks were 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 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. In fact, most of them had never met. But they were brought together by what feld like the shared vision of an emerging mission. There were effectively two different cohorts.

It's very rare to have one person who everyone respects in entertainment or in politics or among the grassroots had van Jones in two thousand fifteen but to have one person was respected by all three.

"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.

The crown prince's Saudi Arabia is guilty, and we can't do business with this country until he's removed. And and I just find that to be an alarming reaction to the story yet at the same time. I have no. No doubt that Saudi Arabia is a horrible murderous regime because that's how they've been since the beginning. And that's why I'm a little confused. I mean, are we pretending that Saudi Arabia is not what they've always been. And and the end at the same time on one hand of this story, you've got people who are lionising Jamal kashogi is this a freedom fighter. Who's like right up there with Thomas Paine, and I'm sorry. He's an Islamist to aligned himself with the Muslim Brotherhood. I mean, it's very clear that's not a slam against him. It's just the facts. So you tell me. What are we supposed to do here?

"One of the things you might want to reflect on feel the Washington Post and you'll his publisher is what would Jamal Khashoggi himself have wanted to happen? And I think it's fairly clear from what he wrote that he probably would've wanted these. You know, his Cullens demonized his is named put on them and and his lost one published. His lost one was in fact a column about the lack of. Freedom of expression in the Middle East, it would have been, I think, rather an irony I felt if I was Washington Post, it would have been other an irony if they hadn't published a column about free expression Nevis Kashoggi's no longer with us. I mean, obviously the primary consideration all this as the safety of his family, they will have had kind of an uneasy existence within Saturday Arabia before his death and goodness knows how they feel now when can only imagine is safe to assume given the climate that we're dealing with given the propensity that the current regime sandy Arabia's has already demonstrations, is it really safe to assume that their that their safety could be is unlikely to be impinged upon even in the medium to long rather than the short term. I don't think that anybody can be one hundred percent certain about any such things as that, as I said, people at the Washington Post on the times in which do the same thing have to take a judgment on the best available information. They've got what the safety of people who are politically at variance with the regime in one way or another. Even the describing them as kashogi himself never wanted to describe to the dissident whether the safe in the medium will depend on political developments in the kingdom. If the crown prince Mohammad bin Salman, who is suspected of being the person possibly behind cushal death, if he loses power in the system than probably distance, he didn't like, are you know, fairly safe for some time to come if or indefinitely if he recovers and consolidates his power than than possibly some. Our risk. I'm not saying that they don't take measures against people. The was a Saudi dissident who lived in Canada for about ten years. He was visited by Sidey agents who said, come back to the kingdom. We've been sent by the crown prince on they brew along one of his brothers to try and persuade him. He refused and two of his brothers and eight of his friends inside the kingdom were arrested. So I'm not saying that they don't use pressures of that kind. I'm arguing that I think what went through the mind, the Washington Post and the times was the spotlight that has been shown on the case.

"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..
"jamal khashoggi" Discussed on The Nicole Sandler Show
"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..
"jamal khashoggi" Discussed on Stay Tuned with Preet
"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..
"jamal khashoggi" Discussed on The Jason Stapleton Program
"And. Well, there are some truly truly evil people in the one I've told you this before I've mentioned to you on previous episodes and talked a little bit about when I was down range and some of the stories I had heard some of the things I'd seen and the truth is that there are truly truly evil people in this world who will do absolutely heinous things.

"jamal khashoggi" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"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.
