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

"Of the planet where new botanist is ever been Nolan's been two studies the plants and it does seem really incredible here in the twenty th century reads. They're all he drained forest canopy trees which completely unknown some of these trees can weigh tons. It's it's quite shocking that we know so little who about won't plant and funky species. We have on the planet Martin Cheek there. A senior botanist at the Royal Botanic Gardens Q.. Just outside London. The world's environment correspondent Carolyn dealer spent a lot of time this year reporting on another place. That's not well understood. Antarctica specifically the melting ice sheets. There that are pushing up sea levels all around the globe. Caroline joined a group of scientists on a two month journey south to Antarctica earlier in the year that team was trying to discover just how much melting in that region could impact global cosigns. All Week we'll be revisiting caroline trip because well it's a sharp reminder of what's at stake for us all with climate change first of all Carolyn. We wanted an update on just what we've learned about Antarctica and sea level rise over the past year like what stands out to you is the biggest headlines of two thousand nineteen mark was not one particular study data point. It's how scientists are talking about the oceans sea level rise and what we call the krause feral the frozen stuff on our earth so the UN has the science panel the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. They release these gold standard scientific reports about climate change but they're consensus driven body. Consider pretty conservative. This year they released a report on the oceans. And let me just read to you a couple of things they said. The Blue Planet is in serious danger right now now and it's our fault causing unprecedented changes to earth and that a rapid transformation is necessary. So you can hear that. Scientists no longer see their role just as doing the science but really issuing a clarion call and urging policymakers to do something about it Roy so the language is more dire beyond how scientists that is a framing the message about melting ice changes to the ocean. What else was new this year? So that same report that was released in September revised the upper estimate for sea level rise by the end of the century up of it so in a previous report released just a couple of years ago it was that one meter a little over three feet. This report a bump that add up to one point one meters now. It doesn't sound like a lot but it's mostly coming from melting in Antarctica. And it just shows you how fast things are changing down there. But it's going to be another couple of years before the scientists working on the project that I was reporting on are able to put their findings into computer models to get better projections of the weather. The West Antarctic ice sheet might collapse. And if so when you had that extraordinary trip earlier twenty nineteen with scientists on this icebreaker to thwaites glacier sure in west Antarctica. Do We know how glacier has fared in the past ten twelve months right so thwaites glacier in west Antarctica. It's melting fast. And if it becomes de stabilized it could trigger eventually something like eleven feet of sea level rise. So that's why we were going there and since I sailed across the front of it since I left waits it's mostly mostly been frozen in so it's weights glacier runs into the sea and the sea around it freezes up. Their winter is our summer exactly so it's mostly been frozen in one long Antarctic. Ignite things don't really start moving until more like January February so this upcoming year is when scientists will be able to see some of the changes that we saw are more systemic make longer-term changes or might just be year year variation but there is one new data point on the health of West Antarctica that was published this year and the rate if melting has about tripled since just two thousand seven so another piece of evidence that melting there is only increasing. Uso some kind of grim news Your reporting meeting last winter caroline showed just hard to even get to Antarctica. Let alone do research Aaron. You sent back these great dispatches for the whole two months you were on the icebreaker really getting into the science yeah and also just day to day life boy. It was like on this ship. So let's go back and listen to your first dispatch now. You filed this at the end of January and it begins on the ship you boarded but still will import in Punta Arenas Chile arena sits at the southern tip of South America on the straight of Magellan. It's a jumping off point for for kind of hikes in Patagonia. But I'm not here for the scenery I'm here to ship out my first a warehouse where US scientists and journalists pick-up cold weather gear inside. There's a room stacked floor to ceiling with red windbreakers insulated overalls and steel toed. Rubber boots Bieler. We grab her gear at the counter. Thank you can I get a car hearts and dry bag as well and head to group dressing rooms. I tried everything on coat. Okay hey the code is gigantic.

"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. That's the first one including Brian Butler. Karen, wall tuck, Vanessa ruble, and Maryland folder fashion designer turned on the side. Line and activists politics who assumed the nom-de-guerre Bob bland these four renew acquaintances with connected in the days since Donald Trump's election through political networking on social media.

Michael Skolnik, the subject of a New York Times profile the previous year as an influence at the nexus of social activism and celebrity Skolnick held a powerful though, not easily defined role in the world of high profile activist politics. 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. There isn't anyone? But Michael Skolnik? When ruble, relayed her concern that the nascent women's movement had substantively include women of color Skolnick, poultry at just the women.

"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. Very bad shut this specialist, but this show the broader thing that these people who are clamoring for us to do something about the Saudis. They are not really interested in the broader interests of this country. They just want to see our alliances department because they do not want..

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

"Last week said Mr. Khashoggi's death followed a brawl inside the building an explanation. That drew skepticism from some on Capitol Hill. Mr. Trump said he had talked on the phone with both Saudi and Turkish leaders and add more details about what happened inside the Saudi consulate in Turkey would be known within a day or two. The power of the sophisticated Saudi influence machine that has shaped policy and perceptions in Washington for decades. Batting back critiques of the oil-rich kingdom by doling out millions to lobbyists blue chip law, firms prominent think tanks and large defense contractors is under the microscope now in two thousand seventeen Saudi payments to lobbyists consultants in Washington. More than tripled over the previous year. The strength of Saudi operation is now being tested him in the killing of Mr. cashew earlier this month in Saudi consulate in Istanbul, death the kingdom belatedly acknowledged last week more from Washington Post investigative reporter Beth Reinhard. Beth what have you found the players in DC for a while? I mean, obviously after nine eleven they had a lot of damage control to do, but their influence has considerably ramped up under Trump in the last couple of years impart because they've seen an opening and the Trump administration Trump has a relationship with the Saudis. The business relationship with the Saudis law, Jared Kushner has bonded with the crown prince, but also because the Saudis had a big setback at the end of the Obama administration somewhere though in the law passed got allowed the families of nine eleven. Do the Saudi government alleging that they had tied to the terrorists and Saudi government has obviously been fighting a law that would allow family. To do that and say that they had nothing to do with nine eleven. But anyway after that law passed, I think society. Wow, we we don't have the influence we need in DC. And they have tripled their spending on lobbying in the last couple of years boy is actual dollar amount. That's been floated out there as to what they spent. Right. It was twenty seven million my colleagues. In two thousand seventeen. You know, paid lobbyists. I mean, there's a lot of money that is not reported. There was money spent courting the media there. There's a lot of ways that they are ingredient themselves into the media and political sabotage here in Washington, and some of it is is one dollars, and some of it is with we sat in the headline there charm offensive, how do they court the media? So one example, we found was a Super Bowl tickets. They offered all tickets and flights to the game chartered flights to Jake tapper and bear were among the journalists that they ported that way.

"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..
"khashoggi" Discussed on The Michael Knowles Show
"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.

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.

This story is just getting more and more bizarre. Let me bring you up to speed in case, you don't know. This story started a couple of weeks ago with this idea that this Washington Post reporter is suddenly missing. Well, he's not a Washington Post. Reporter only his name is Jamal Khashoggi, and he is a Saudi Arabian citizen. He is also a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. He's beef with Saudi Arabia in his own what he called self imposed exile is all about the Saudis, not befriending and not not excusing the behavior of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Saudis are very clear that the Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organization and not a friend to Saudi Arabia or really anyone in the world. So he went into self imposed exile, and he came here to the United States. There are claims that he is he was still a Muslim Brotherhood operative. There are also claims that he was feeding us information. A against the Muslim Brotherhood. I'm not sure which to believe that this point. So he's overseas. He's in Turkey, and he's going to get married, but he's been divorced to his wife in Saudi Arabia for him to be able to get remarried. He has to have a divorce certificate from Saudi Arabia the Saudi Arabian say, well, you're going to have to come in to the embassy to get it. Now, he is not a friend to the Saudi Arabian prince, the one who has been this big reformer, and he's going to take Saudi Arabia into the future. And he's good for women, and he's good for human rights and everything else. Khashoggi is not popular with that prince, and that prince has not been popular with Khashoggi. The he had been trying to get Chicago Khashoggi to come back to Saudi Arabia, but Khashoggi new would probably be a death sentence to me. He takes his fiancee, they get into a car, and they drive up to the embassy the Saudi embassy in Istanbul. He says I'm going to go in. I'm going to get the paperwork. They're expecting me. I'll be right back out. Wait for me. So she did hours pass. She starts to call the embassy. She calls his phone. No answer. Nothing. Is it turns out Saudi Arabia? I denied that any of this happened. But we now know that they are about to admit, we don't know to what extent. But it looks as though he was interrogated tortured and killed. He was then hacked into pieces and thrown onto a Saudi plane in suitcases, and what happened from there. We don't know. Now, there's an additional update today. We have our secretary of state over in Saudi Arabia meeting with the king and the crown prince who are now saying privately that. Yes. This was just somebody who went rogue. But it's kind of hard to believe. The new information today. Now is this coming from Turkey. So we don't know if this is true or not. There are two stories one the United States came out pretty quickly. Last week when this story broke and said, we have evidence that this was ordered by Saudi Arabia, and he is dead. But they never released where that came from. They just release that this was US intelligence sources say. That was the first Nick, then the Turks came out and said that they had audio and video tape of this man's interrogation. Torture and killing. I don't know if they do there is a possibility that they have microwave technology that could listen if the Saudi embassy was not prepared to deal with that kind of surveillance. You can get that kind of audio from inside of a building. But there's also another story. This actually audio arrived first with his fiance because he had an apple watch. And when he went in he turned it on and it recorded, and when it finished recording, it just uploaded to the cloud and downloaded to her phone. I hope to God that's not true for her sake. I can't imagine..
"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.
