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

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

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

"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.

"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

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

You know of course is history was as a saudi journalists but in the last year of his life he was writing for the washington post so as murder happened. Of course the news stories around the world was he was the washington post journalist. I think that the certainly attributed to the visibility. But i think even more importantly than that was the brazenness of describes some somebody walking into their own consulate seeking wedding papers while they're fiance is waiting outside for them only to never come out again and then for us to find out that he had in fact been murdered dismembered just a horrific situation so i think there were a lot of elements that really catapulted this story to the top of news feeds and then of course you know the kingdom itself and the repression going on within saudi arabia. That at the same time was being heavily marketed and promoted that mohammed bin salman was this great reformer changing saudi arabia opening up saudi arabia allowing human rights

"Readers publisher of stamped racism anti racism in you from Jason Reynolds and eva Max candy a book that asks readers of all ages what can you do to be anti racist available now this is fresh AIR and we're speaking with Ben Harper he's the Beirut bureau chief for The New York Times he spent more than a dozen years reporting on the Middle East he has a new book about the young crown prince of Saudi Arabia who is effectively ruling the country the book is M. B. S. the rise to power of Mohammed bin Salman Mohammed bin Salman didn't have great relations with the Obama administration's things were much warmer with the trump administration and he had a particularly close relationship with Europe cluster units tell us a little about that yeah it was very interesting and I think to to put in a bigger context nobody again if you had gotten together experts and ask them you know before trump became president how do you think his relationship is going to be with the Saudis trump had a very long history of some very nasty things about Muslims and very nasty things about the Saudis and so I think very people would have predicted that you would have had this very close relationship between the trump administration of Mohammed bin some land but in the end that's what happened there you know I think it's it's to me I think it's actually one of the smarter things that MBS's managed to do is that P. as soon as trump won the election they basically went courted and they sent a whole delegation to the east coast they talked to some of trump's business associates some of his political associates and that with Jared Kushner they came back and they wrote a whole report saying this is who these guys are these people are deal makers they're interested in the bottom line they're interested in business they don't know a lot about the Middle East and what they really care about is Israel and so they basically use that to cross their approach the administration and it turned out to be a wild success I mean trump you know frequently talks taking sometime he frequently talks to Mohammed bin Salman Jared Kushner has become a close personal friend to Mohammed bin Salman so much so that you know people in other parts of the U. S. government complain that they don't know what they talk about I mean jury question will fly to Saudi Arabia home it was so help me with mom and then some man at some desert ranch and then fly home and you know if someone from the state department does that they write up a cable and they send it back and that's circulated within the government because there doesn't need to do that and so you have entire branches of the U. S. government who don't know what's happening inside of this incredibly important bilateral relationship yeah one of the things trump has talked about is how valuable Saudi arms purchases have been for the United States and you start with one pretty remarkable example of Kushner can I personally brokering it seems at a deal for Arjuna tells about that trump has always talked about the importance of Saudi Arabia spending lots and lots of money on U. S. arms and there's this big sort of somewhat bizarre case of when Jered Kushner was meeting with some Saudi officials and representatives from a you know talking about a new arms package that was supposed to go through for the Saudis and someone in the room recommended a piece of kit that was not included in the original packaging Jared Kushner said I'm gonna see if I can get you a discount on this basically and he calls up you know a high ranking official from Lockheed Martin and says I think we should give them a discount the person says well let me look into it and get back to you and some of the other people in the room were just baffled because usually American officials are trying to look out for the interests of American companies and American arms manufacturers and not look out for the interests of you know representatives of foreign governments no the the one thing that probably most people know about Mohammed bin Salman is his association with the murder of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi this is pretty well known but you want to just described this incident for us and he went to to get I guess was was it a marriage license at the Saudi consulate in in Turkey right okay so he was an incredibly well known Saudi journalist for for many decades he had been seen as part of the establishment he was close to the Royals he was close to the government when I started covering Saudi Arabia he was incredibly valuable because he was a Saudi that unlike many others would always answer his phone when you would call and he would do his best to tell you what was going on and he would say this is what I think the government is thinking this is what they're doing this is what you know I think the king wants to do and you know for journalists trying to make sense of Saudi Arabia he was someone who was incredibly valuable by two thousand eighteen he had broken the Saudi Arabia he had become a critical moment in some man there were lots of things sort of on the more therapy for Terri inside of what MBS was doing that he didn't like he had fled the kingdom he was living in your house and Washington DC and you want to get married he had met a young younger Turkish woman that he wanted to marry in order to do so he needed a document proving that he would have been divorced from his previous marriage so we went to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to pick up the document and never came out which started you know yet again an incredibly bizarre and somewhat terrifying episode and the rise of MBS when we can all sort of the Turks revealed over time that he had been held inside he had been murdered and he had been chopped into pieces by a team of Saudi agents who had flown in specifically for that task in the days and weeks after the murder when people are trying to figure out what happened what kinds of communications did president trump or Jared Kushner has with his friend you know Mohammed bin Salman and other Saudis well they they had a surprising number of phone calls I mean trump was trump was on the phone with him all the time there were a number of calls that took place I mean I had you know someone who could someone who had knowledge of these calls describe them to me and what was remarkable was that in public trump was very bullish on the Saudis he stood up for them and he said you know these guys are important for us I don't know if he did it but these people are very important for us and you know from the from the calls that I was able to get some information on trump was quite hard on I called them up and said listen what happened did you guys know about this you know to be asking did you know about the C. S. N. B. S. did you know about this and they just denied everything you know at one point he told them you know there's this whole story about the bone saw that this team had showed up with a bone saw that they had used to dismember could show yeah trump asked them you know what's the deal with this bone saw you know I've been in some tough negotiations in my life but I never needed a bone saw and from what I was told they never acknowledged anything they never told them yeah we know about it they just kept denying it and denying it yeah and in the end trump when it was clear that this should come from the top of Saudi Arabia he his bottom line was we need that right yeah the the you know basically the Central Intelligence Agency did an assessment that they you know I would say released to parts of the U. S. government in a way that made it sure that it would be leaked to the news media which was which said that you know there was no smoking gun that MBS had ordered the killing but the all the circumstantial evidence pointed to that basically the way that the kingdom works this kind of an operation that was this big of a deal and that this is that was this complex there was no way that it was going to go forward without sign off from the top guy you know this was release we reported on it other newspapers reported on it it was you know sort of you know became part of public record of our understanding of what happened and trump just kind of ignored it and said yeah it doesn't really matter either way you know maybe he did it and maybe he didn't but at the end of the day is important for us and that's that's what matters you know what's kind of remarkable when you look at all of this together is that you have Mohammed bin Salman who is now I think thirty four right and yet most most politicians with some experience learn that there are limits to their power and influence they can't simply order things to be done and you know even after you know Muhammad bin Salman bin of mortars the kidnapping of the prime minister of Lebanon and other things which we should go very badly and end up being embarrassing he still thinks he can murder a leading dissident journalist and get away with it but you feel like you understand what goes on in this guy's head what what what gives him the sort of one of this ability to think you can do just anything well I don't I don't sort of want to do too much mind reading I would I mean I would assume that some of it is just has to do with you know being a top leader in an absolute monarchy I mean this is not this is not a country where you want to make a decision you need to run it through some big process to get it approved or you need to you know get sign off for you need to send it to Congress to debate and then vote on you know you just if you're thinking of the conference you just kind of do what you want and so I mean I think that that would be my best guess for why he's kind of felt that he could do some of these things and I think the big question going forward is the thing to remember about Mohammed bin Salman's he's still very young I mean he's thirty four if his father you know passes away soon he could very quickly become king and he could be king for fifty years you know he could be king if he lived to be as old as his father he'll be king sometime into the two thousand sixties so I think the big question about you know was watching Mohammed bin Salman going forward is is he learning from his mistakes like and and I I I just don't know does he look at sort of the Yemen war does he look at what he did to somehow really does he look at you know some of these other things and are just look at that the killing of democracy which is so wild we really messed that up that was not the right way to do this and you know I I can't answer that question and and but I think that's really that's really what what we should keep an eye on going forward is how much is he learning from these mistakes and is there a chance that you know he's going to grow into sort of a wiser more circumspect ruler who's going to think a little bit more before he does these kinds of rash activities you know whether things striking when you look at the picture you paint of him as a leader is the contrast between these really very significant reforms in terms of you know social mores and rules for you know religious restrictions and some economic change on the one hand and then this tendency towards autocracy on the other do you see any is there a framework that puts this together a model well I think it can be I think it can be hard for.

"<hes> before the United Nations Human Rights Council to I believe fully at male guardianship system so my reaction was that well this is great and this is better than nothing but we're certainly hoping for other measures to be taken with regards to women's rights and this is not enough so so if these new rules are in fact implemented what will be the new normal for women in Saudi Arabia in recent months and we've seen <hes> several young women men who has fled the country and made public pleas on social media for help in seeking asylum from there finally and the government so one wonders are are more women going to feed their country what's going to happen? I mean there has been an outpouring of. I don't know any other word but emotion in the wake of this rule change <hes> the announcement of what's been the reaction to those advocating for human rights and Saudi Arabia. Everybody remembers when the ban on women driving was lifted glasser but we the activists believe that these measures are just for show and that Mohammed bin Salman is actively shutting down any form of peaceful dissent and actually he has no intention of implementing real reforms. These was quite evident in in May of last year when there was a wave of arrests of women human rights defenders I and the irony is that this woman had long been advocating for such measures and for the male gardens she could be abolished so these women are basically deep seen as a threat because if they were free they would be challenging this modernist narrative that Saudis trying to present to the word today. So what do you think is next for the Kingdom I mean are you at least hopeful that these rule change proposals at least are the beginning of real change ultimately if Saudi Arabia is serious Chris about improving the situation of women and human rights in the country these woman numerous defenders should be released unconditionally and one something also last but not least is that we've been talking a lot about the woman but let's not forget that there are also men who are currency imprison because they had been advocating thanks for gender equality and equal rights and they haven't gotten any attention in as a small the director of the Middle East and North Africa Human Rights Association Meena.

There's another effort to stop the flow of weapons to Yemen. The world's. Steven Snyder has been taking a deep dive into this arms trade so the warn Yemen is now in its fifth year Steven. Tell us about this pipeline of weapons flowing into Yemen. It's not actually a pipeline. I found this out. It's actually boats. There are five cargo ships that are owned by Saudi Arabia one. It comes up the U._S.. East Coast every twenty five days then it goes up to New Brunswick where it picks up light armored vehicles made by the Canadians then taken across the ocean to ports of call in Europe and then back down to the Arabian peninsula and there is a fantastic map that you've put up on our website. The World Dot Org that shows does exactly this route so i WanNa talk to you about what's been going on in Europe with his attempt to stop the flow of arms from the United States to Yemen. I spoke with Brian Kastner who's at Amnesty International and he cited something called the U._n.. Arms Trade Treaty the standard in the arms trade treaty is that you should not be transferring the weapons or selling the weapons if there is a risk of them being used for human rights.

"Let's return to this Saudi Aramco story was it made me the was most profitable company. That's still might not be enough to persuade investors that the energy giant is worth the kingdom's. Aspirational figure of two trillion dollars. We got more with that Middle East finance reporter Matthew mountain and Mary sediment, director of competent markets at FFA private Bank into by what you can tell from looking through the accounts, and this gives us the first time ever, really detailed look some of around Cho's accounts. So we can see that painting around your nearly sixty billion dollars in dividends to the Saudi government. I'm looking at some of the other numbers in and applying a dividend yield of about five percent, which is the sort of industry. Standard for all the energy companies. You can work that back and give around evaluation of almost one point two trillion dollars. So this is still some way. Off the magic number of of two shoot dollars which Muhammad bin Salman has said that he thinks the company should be worth. We've seen a huge amount of work being put in trying to get the company to that valuation. And what we're seeing is that it's probably just not yet. Well, the dividends are incredibly important part of the play overall within the majors. To that end. It's not about benchmark through still pay pasty fifty eight billion dollars is the top line number, but only fifty two billion of that is actually intact. So again, what could the government do to increase the valuation in terms of is it less take for us a little bit more for you, the investor they're they're all a few levers that the government still has it could tweak. We've already seen them while ago. They changed the way the tax regime worked in the royalty payments, Troy and altuva equation. So you could see the government doing that. Again. The difficulty will be that as the government looks at tweaking that to try to increase the pay that investors will get of the government will remain the largest investor interim. But as it looks at tweaking those numbers, the government's take probably will be reduced. And in a situation where Saudi Arabia is in deficit and as going out and ball rolling in the bull markets, and it has massive investment schemes as well that he wants to go through whether the government will want to tweak the tax regime gay. Is going to be questioned that well, we'll ultimately be to have been on how much he really wants to push this two trillion. Magic number. It's been a very busy few weeks four Saudi Aramco and for SABIC as well investor on the sidelines looking at this is going to say well, clearly making a lot of progress. They're moving ahead. The train is headed in the right direction. Where does that leave the IPO go? Well, I think again it's going to be up to Mohammed bin Salman. And how much does he really committed to this two trillion number? We've seen haven interviews. I think at least two or three times he has come out and said that around here is going to be without that amount. The topic aquisition is going to be of the Russian I'll of trying to create a cove into a more diversified company. Push it downstream push it into other areas of the energy industry to try. It increases valuation acquisition alone, though is probably not going to be enough to push up to two trillion dollars. So we I think we're still seeing around at some years. All okay. Well, certainly they're going to get the dollars in after the Savak and antecedent accent that gives them the wind that they need Massey. Thank you so much that is on Middle East funds pulled up Matthew Monness bring into the conversation director of FFA Privatbank indivi-. She joins us if and so the valuation Matthew says trillion a still a long way away, but the profit numbers. There's no doubt about it. They they are really quite splendid at one hundred eleven million at one hundred eleven million bass invest the data that we got yesterday. What do you make of the reveal the big ravine now? On Assad earnings are very good earnings. Definite. Can everyone was expecting that? How many my politics? Sorry. Everyone was expecting good results from Adam Cornell these come bit surprising. They definitely very good news for everyone, and especially for the markets and the Saudi and Saudi specifically specifically sound like if we're going to look at this point. Because when we're looking at the company, which is Quiring and other. And in this case, it said acquiring Savak making such huge profits and Savak being the top company profitable, profitable wise. Profitability wise in the on the towel. It's something that those investor's attention. There are two big companies that are actually in their own sectors. Let's put it that way. Because we can't compare this topic but Fillon we see that kind of acquisition happening definitely figures some sort of positive sentiment confidence to investors to go and invest in the energy sector ended Saudi market at this point in time. The idea of a lot of capital flowing into the hands of the Saudi government, and that they might be deployed and other ways you consider that Saudi government entities quite a lot of stock onto Dowell me. Could this be perhaps a sign that some of the capital gets redirected back into Saudi equities. Now, the thing is when we look at cash or whatever liquidity available with government doesn't always have to be invested in the stock market in particular in Saudi we've heard a lot about infrastructure. Enhancements and stuff like that doesn't always have to be. To Pacific now, if we look at the public investment fund efforts, it's also something they're getting liquidity. And this gives them the long-term sort of investment whether to the government or to the investment funds in order to be able to go further with their infrastructure and their stability around economically. Now, we know you like a Bank. Let's xfinity back. We've done a couple of pieces of not we have we have Adleman Christie who's our banks research on the he's talking about profitability. And this is what I want to gauge your sensitivity to this. He reckons profitability is gonna slow down this year from around eleven percent, maybe five to seven percent who aware is the weakest link in the Bank chain. Who the weakest now we've definitely seen a lot of consolidation. So we're gonna just get away from those because when consolidation happens we see a lot of strength and the entities. I'm not gonna talk. I'm not gonna talk at the stage, not MSNB, although they have a lot of things going out at this point in time. But probably look at the smaller banks where we have seen a lot of some issues or some things that we actually have concerned investors. I'm not gonna name imports on anything. It's going to be a bit too at this point in time. But as a Yoda DiPoto analysts have mentioned, we have we have been extremely bullish on the banking sector. And we we we're not trying to withdraw dot at this point in time. But there's always a point in time where you need to slow down with your investments and try to look on profit-taking and the being bit conservative on how you look at certain things we've seen buying going extremely rallying and the pasta quarter or soul. And it's about time. I think we start. Booking profits and monitoring what's going to happen, especially with the new changes that are going to take place. Closing thoughts on crude oil and how that might play into some of your calls for some of the Gulf equities scraping backup. Argue this is this is good news now. Now, we have seen a bit of civility around that even with the changes in the oil prices were still a bit comfortable with how how the effect is going down on the Gulf equities in particular. And if we look at the oil and gas actors in particular and the region, whether it's in the or Saudi Arabia where we believe that investors and governments and companies have sort of absorbed dot sort of change in the coup and the production that we're seeing around. Veteran Jerry and President Abdelaziz beautifully. Finally stepped on this week leaving the role after the head of the army said he should go without delay. Eighty two year old had been in power for twenty years and had wanted a new five-year, Tom. I got more with our executive editor for the Middle East and Africa. The head of the MSCI sort of said that he should go. And and the military really is the main power in area. So I think it's very clear. It was very clear message to president that it's time for him to resign. And it also shows the level of concern that the military had with the continuation of the demonstrations that were going on. And there's a phrase in the story, which is just about beautifully. It would seem as the momentum for wholesale change the pouvoir, which is the whole tier of leadership within all JIRA. They want them to go. They I think that's the thing. Right. I mean, if has gone, and they replace him with somebody else from inside is that going to be enough for obviously it depends on who it is. And it depends what this new person will do. But I think that's really the big question right now is this real change will the system the political system and change or are they sort of removing the figurehead and replacing him with a new forget, I mean, one of the problems was that the power in in the people in charge apparently weren't really able to agree on a successor. So maybe they have now and that will damper things down woman, which I find fascinating story that we've written up this morning is about Europe's perspective of what's happening Algieria. I'm what? Pregnant consciousness the most is his heavy hand on his Llamas militancy. So this is security angle to this transition as well. I mean, I think every story you read about Putin has mentioned that in the nineteen ninety s Ajaria was in the grip of a vicious civil war, the military cancelled elections that is amiss want that led to a terrible civil ALgeria, and beautifully was the guy who ended it. He's at least been given credit for ending it for being too close and any new leadership Europe, especially here is very close. You know? It's a country. It's a big supplier forty million people. Europe will be very nervous about a return to those days. They will not want to see this. Next. Imagine mania continues in the UI as Abu Dhabi considers a move that would create the Middle East.

"But you can still be to John's point real politic and believe our intelligence services, and that is the other dimension of this that is similar to how he's talked about flat. Amir Putin that is similar to how he's talked about. Mohammed bin Salman, which is that our intelligence services believed that Otto warmbier was taken intentionally and strategically because if you look at the timing of it, it was three days before Kim Jong UN was about to test a missile for the first time in three years. This is a well known tactic of the Koreans which is North Koreans, which is strategic hostage taking so count this. As yet another time where this president is not just trying to butter up, dictators and strongmen but doing it in defiance of our own intelligence. You know, presidencies take on the personalities of of the president always agree. There's nothing nothing inherently wrong with walking away from negotiation. I don't think that's a problem. But in this is gonna sound harsh. This is a presidency entirely, without empathy. I think there's what you're getting only because he he seems to be for all appearances person who was entirely without empathy. Whatever his strong, suit's or or weeks. He does not have the ability to. To feel personally and deeply the suffering of others. He never exhibits that and and I think that's Cohen was getting it in his testimony. And it's what comes across in moments like this North Korea. David Brooks today. That's basically that theme of his column. Didn't love Donald Trump when he was a kid anyway, that's all for today.

"The United States is here. Like, no, no, that's not gonna happen Kim Jong in Mohammed bin Salman. Right. We are just hanging out like buddy movies, two of the cruelest leaders in the world this week get trying to tell as Walea that it's going to be liberated from oppression. I mean, I just again, I really don't want to discount. I have in me a strong lake neo-con streak where they're suffering in the world. I want us to go help. But everything that I am learning about history and our efforts to go help and how we get stuck for decades still trying to help and not seeming to be helpful in those efforts makes me very leery of sending our military anywhere near Venezuela. Even perhaps with humanitarian aid to be honest with you. I mean, it just it this situation really feels like a powder keg to me. This administration has made abundantly clear that the governing principle the north star of their foreign policy is transactional in nature. So the Venezuelan people are not wrong to say they're here because they're going to get something out of it. We'll they'll look past anything if they're going to get something out of it. And so they would have no problem with Madero. If that we were going to get something out of it just like we look past Muhammed been some on. And we look past Jong because we're getting something out of it. And so I think that their skepticism of our involvement is not wrong because we've made clear. That it's really not about protecting democracy. It's about what we get out of it. We'll continue to watch what happens here and let you know how Mike Pence's trip resolved on Friday before we move on. We need to take a second to follow up on our conversation with Noah Rothman, which inspired lots of additional conversation both positive in give it wasn't lots of people were upset by the conversation. Lots of people found it very difficult to listen to. But other people found it insightful, and helpful. So we we wanna make sure and point out that the feedback was not all negative will the first thing that I want to say is we got so many messages surprising volume of messages from people who felt that he was condescending to us, and I did not feel that at all. I appreciate the care about that. Thank you for carrying about that. I did not find him to talk to us differently than he talks to anyone else. And I think his style is very economic and a little bit more strident than either of our styles, which probably affected, the dynamics. But just in terms. Of the personal experience. Which a lot of y'all were asking us about I found it to be a perfectly pleasant conversation..

"Tonight's topic. Mohammed bin Salman is controversial leadership reassessing the US Saudi relationship guest tonight. Stephen cook, senior fellow for Middle East and Africa. Studies at the council on foreign relations, he joins world affairs. Co host Ray Suarez to discuss whether the US should reassess its ties to the kingdom's ruler at eight four world affairs. This is fresh air. I'm Terry gross. Let's get back to the interview Dave Davies recorded with filmmaker you ruby rich in her new documentary the green book guide to freedom tells the story of the travel guide. First published in the pre civil rights era listing places across the country where a safer African Americans to eat shop, stay overnight and find medical help while traveling on American highways the documentary will be shown tonight on the Smithsonian channel what role did the business owners that were in the green book play in the civil rights movement? There were some interesting stories are aren't there? Yeah. You know, I keep saying we we've seen the footage of civil rights footage of marches and hoses being gal put upon African-Americans African-Americans fighting back, but who pays for for the movement who move ins costs money and the green book lists one of the places the gas in motel in Birmingham, Alabama whose owner is a man named a g Gaston AG gas in was one of the most successful a black business people up until that time, multimillionaire, he had many different businesses. And one of those was the gas in motel and the gas in motel was one of the headquarters where Martin Luther King, Dr Martin Luther King fought the Birmingham campaign and with the very hand campaign was an effort to desegregate the businesses downtown and Birmingham was police by a notorious racist sheriff. Who had a lot of power in the town bull Connor? So the photo footage that we've you know that we found show Martin Luther King at the motel with Dr Reverend Abernathy a really orchestrating this campaign and AG Gasson was the owner let them stay for free and also gave money even though he disagreed. He was more conservative and he disagreed with a confrontational approach initially. So he and Dr king would kind of go at it about what's the right way forward to fight to fight for civil rights, but he's a really unsung hero of the movement. And so it was really wonderful to be able to talk to his niece. Carol Jenkins who is an esteemed reporter in her own right about that history. Right. After say one thing that made this part of the story really fascinating is when when movements for change occur years later, we know kind of the outcome, and it all seems. Termine but back then there were these real debates. I mean, how how hard can you push? How far do you go and potentially alienating other supporters and king was pushing harder. Gaston was an established businessman, and so I'll king was pushing action on the street guests headlines of communication to the department store owners and. Did they work together? Did they I mean how did that? Was it an alliance was it? What was the relationship? I think it was an alliance and also a given give and take. So there are things I know that king did that gas in did not support one of those was the children's March during that campaign. They had all the students come out and Martin gas thought that was a bad idea. And there was violence around that and gas and didn't want the children was worried about the the children being attacked, but also to gas in bailed king out of jail. He let them stay for free. And he does talk about how he realized that there needed to be a more confrontational approach when he saw the hoses on the people in the park, and you know, the the strength of the hoses literally making someone barrel down the sidewalk. Doc, and he knew that things had to change, and that confrontation was gonna you know, it was the only way to attack this problem. There's this amazing footage. I think it's in the parking lot may be of the AG Gaston motel in Birmingham in which Gaston himself is announcing an agreement to integrate some of the shopping areas. Right. Absolutely. Yes. So they did win in that they had an agreement with the business owners for to integrate the downtown now, of course, right after that riots and violence kind of blew up all over the country. So, you know, there was progress made in this particular moment, but it's certainly didn't solve the problem of what was happening nationally. We were in the midst of the the heat of the movement the green book was published over a thirty year span. But I'm curious whether the copy in the book addressed issues of racism in. Discrimination and discrimination. Or did it simply accepted as a fact of life and say this is how we're going to get around. It wasn't until the later additions where you had where you had the book addressing the conditions were in one of the later copies in the sixties. It says you open it up, and it says, no your rights, and it had, you know, the places the civil rights laws that were pass on a state level in every state, but it was not a political necessarily a political book. Remember how it was being distributed is being distributed by a white owned business? So it was wasn't going to be too political in in in its pages. But it did have that business being the standard oil company at its gas. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I would imagine that there are certain, you know, he knew what he had to do in order to get wide distribution. But later in the later in its pages at did have more acknowledgement of what was going on. And the fight for first civil rights that was happening in the country. Were there white owned businesses advertising in the book? Also. Yes, there were there were white owned businesses. I don't know if they advertise I didn't necessarily see any advertisements in terms of like pictures. I do remember seeing one one Chinese owned business that advertise in the buck. I I remember that. So there were there were some white owned businesses and other other races. Well, who owned businesses in the buck? So the green book ceased publication in nineteen sixty seven is that right? That's right. Nineteen sixty seven is the last year. It's published I guess that obviously has to do with advances in the civil rights movement and the end of legal segregation. That's her. What did that mean for all these businesses that were know the offer these services over the decades, it's kind of the unintended consequences of desegregation? I mean, when the when we had segregation, we also had many businesses that served the African American community, and that we went to as African Americans, obviously with the end of the passage of the Civil Rights Act that ended legal segregation, the businesses opened up, and that meant that African Americans could now go to the Holiday Inn, not just the gas in most health, for example. And it also meant that there was competition for those African American dollars and with that competition you also need money in. Order to to have your place, meet certain standards, or to have it be able to compete against the Holiday Inn, or what have you and that was a challenge for black businesses. You know, we had these businesses and we're entrepreneurs, but we didn't necessarily have the economic support from the banks, for example that could help us maintain these businesses. So what you find is that after the passage of the Civil Rights Act. Many of these businesses started to close, right? And there's plenty of footage in the film of parking lots that are overgrown and buildings in disarray about a third of him still standing, right? That's right about a third. Yeah. Is there an effort to preserve or revive these businesses? Yeah. There is in some cases. One of the most exciting cases is the gas in motel where the national historic trust made the Gaston designated the gas in a historical landmark and is in the. Process of renovating or we'll begin renovating the motel for re-use. So that's a really big effort. That was helped by the fact that it was that President Obama named a historical landmark and places like Idyllwild. There's definitely an effort to get African Americans and not just African-Americans, but people to buy land they're to renovate to hold on to that history. It's more of a, you know, an anonymous unofficial effort, but that those efforts Ciller going on your phone comes out the same year as the feature fell green book during Vigo Mortenson in Barcelona Ali based on the story of Tony Valla longer driving. Don, Shirley, the African American pianist around the south have you seen the green book movie, the yeah? And your thought before I saw it. I'd definitely had kept up with the the sort of criticism. It was getting. Around. Of course, it's winning a lot of awards, but the criticism it was getting from the family of Dr Shirley that this was a story told by the white driver's perspective. And that's certainly the case. It's not really I'm it's definitely through a certain lens. That's the white drivers leads. But in terms of the green book, the thing that I found frustrating is that it only shows places that they go to, you know, through the green book as being really as dumps as really not nice places. And that's not the case there were so many of you know, there are more than ninety five hundred listings in the book over the years and places like the gas in which was considered the finest negro motel in the country. So that was frustrating to see that portrayal of the green book, and the film, and the other thing is that they only used it only picked up the green book when they were in the south and that plays into the masala g that this was racism was something that was only in the. South. So those are my two they criticisms in terms of how the green book was portrayed. Richard spin. Great, thanks so much for speaking with us. It's been a pleasure. Thank you so much for having me, you ruby rich and directed the new documentary the green book guide to freedom. The film will be shown tonight on the Smithsonian channel.

"So that's as far as I know where the story is do you have anything to add to that? No, your description of very very accurate. The fact here is that as you mentioned before and these Ed who is the, you know, the the conference the de facto. Ruler of the United Arab Emirates has a very interesting relationship with someone who is the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, in fact, it's almost kind of a mentor ship relationship and might actually be deeper. Also, very strong alliance between the two countries. So if his almost certain that if the has cyber warfare kep abilities, it would share them with with the Saudis, it puts share capacity with the Saudis and vice versa. Now on this particular incident, we still don't know whether the I mean, we don't know how how they came to into possession of these private communications. We don't know whether it was actually the result of a hack or whether someone was paid off and leaked it. It's not clear yet. But you know, the political motivations are there. I mean, I I don't have as for me myself as an expert, but looks at these things I think it's very clear that the Saudi connection the Saudi angle is really a productive get here. And I think more people should be probing into it. Well, there is a possibility that the girlfriend of Jeff basis brother, he's close to Roger stone. And he may well have had access to her phone, but that's still wouldn't be sufficient. I don't think about a hack into it would certainly be the gateway to hack into Jeff Bezos this phone and one would seem that the head of the most the richest man in the world ahead of the promises, the world's most powerful company, which has massive contracts with the NSA in the CIA, you think that he would have pretty sophisticated electronic devices, but you know, one doesn't know, but there's another link here that's interesting by daddy. And that is that in two thousand seventeen the Israeli firm NSO group sold Mohammed bin Salman, a fifty five million dollars spy program called Pegasus, which hacks into smartphones to obtain the contents and apparently NBS. Use them to spy on Jamal Shoji. So that's another possibility is it not that the Saudis could have got sophisticated hacking tools from the Israelis we've been discussing the extent to which it may have come from the NSA people that work for the UA. Well, that's definitely a possibility as well. Of course, and note notes, of course, importantly, how they manage to snoop on facilities communications. They they didn't have access your mouse phone, but they had access to another activist who who who lives in Canada. They manage to have almost phone, and he was in frequent communication with them out. So this is how so the idea here is that it. Maybe that impact just phone. Maybe it's it's his girlfriend phone. That's what we don't know. And the thing is even with the Israeli store with Israeli the story. This happened in seventeen we mentioned that we came to know about because of you know, people are looking into it offers Mel brutal murder lost here. So we don't know what other capacities. They might have that. We simply don't know about. Well, it is pretty clear that there is a Saudi connection. I don't think Jeff basis would have mentioned that unless he had some evidence. And we know that am I printed this glossy Valentine to MB s when he was visiting the United States. It's one hundred page now advertising, so different somebody covered the costs. But it just comprised of pictures of Mohammad bin Salman and a cover and was basically just I can't remember the name when it was basically saying, you know, this is the the coming of the new kingdom of the liberal democracy, and all of this nonsense, which of course, was a part of the Massey public relations campaign that mode bin Salman engaged in which conned a lot of western journalists, including Thomas Friedman of the New York Times. Absolutely. But see I think it's also important to note that David Packers relationship with Saudi royalty go back to a year before. So there's a time Linda, we control from almost July believe plenty of seventeen all the way to March. Plenty plenty of eighteen March is when the mystery magazine that you mentioned, you know, appear on the news fans there wasn't ongoing relationship there. And I believe there was an Associated Press report in April twenty eight thousand which uncovered the fact that that Saudi officials were made aware of the publication almost a month before they were sent some copies of it. They went through with the even four took some of their contacts in DC. So there were definitely aware of the of this publication the point about the publication. Why it matters here is that? If m I received money or any kind of direction or any kind of compensation. Really if anything of value really as a result. If there was some kind of, you know, agreement between am I am the Saudis to create the publication, then AM I would have acted as a foreign agent as an agent of a foreign power. So it violates the laws when it comes to, you know, registering as a foreign agent with of course, they didn't. And they still maintain that. There was no connection the Saudi say, you know. The aim. I kind of present the same story, which has just happened to do it because wanted to somehow. Well, we know that Donald Trump doesn't have any friends except for his buddy gun Keith Schiller who no longer works at the White House is being paid handsomely by the Republican National Committee, and the other friend we've been told it's David Pekka. So we know that Donald Trump's celebrated the divorce of Jeff Bezos, and he announced his divorce just the day before the National Enquirer dumped, all of these incriminating embarrassing pictures. They've held back on the on the panel, the most salacious ones, and that's what that was essentially blackmailing basis with and he flipped the switch on them by going public. And now they're in legal trouble. So we know that Trump hates pays us hates the Washington Post. We also know that the Saudis NBS hates the Washington Post. They were the employees of Shimon Shoji and the Washington Post has been doing really serious investigations and keeping the story alive. Because the president is doing everything he can to sweep it under the rug. He's the only person on the planet is not to believe that NBS was behind the assassination of Jamal's Shoji. And to my mind. I'm absolutely convinced that there's a huge payoff here. Trump is totally transactional. And we know that and if he's sticking his neck out for 'em Bs in the way that he is don't you think he's getting something in return from NBS? I think the relationship really goes deeper than that. I believe I think what we get to know the entire collusion story. The collusion is not to the story is not going to be just Russia from and that's it. I mean, it's it's won't be just Trump the Trump campaign, or, you know, people in the Trump campaign and Russia, I think it's a five party collusion here. It's going to be very clear that Saudi Arabia the United Arab. Emerson Israel or parts of the whole ecosystem of collusion. And I think this is going to become very clear as more information becomes available to us in nineteen. Well, there's no question that the son-in-law Jared Kushner has shaken down the Qataris for half a billion dollars for the vanity project that he bought when he was courting. Trump's daughter, Ivanka I've paid for it. It's been underwater and mysteriously money has appeared to cover the one point two billion that they couldn't pony up with. So and a lot well leaders us in being complaining that Jared Kushner, basically runs around the world posing as the peacemaker, but in fact, he's just extorting governments for money. He started out with the Chinese. They turned him down. And then he went on December the tenth of twenty sixteen. He had a meeting with the Russian ambassador Kislyak and the head of the what's called Putin slush fund PNB Bank. Any ask them for half a billion along with a back channel between the Kremlin and the White House. So. The record's pretty clear that's not just Trump who's involved in perhaps receiving illicit funds from the Saudis, the campaign funds or even campaign funds for twenty twenty. That's not out of the question. Well, absolutely. I think there is there's a lot more than going to be uncovered on the relationship between Kushner, an NBA NBS. And I think there's going to be explosive. I think is going to be a big story. How ever I'm very cautious about mainly because the details are just so explosive that you kind of it's almost takes so breath away. It's almost like you want to slow down. And you're like, okay. I wanna make sure that what what I'm reading here. What I'm kind of what's the picture? That's coming to my mind right now that's forming in front of me is actually true. So absolutely not just Trump. It's really people around from like like you said he is transactional. And he thinks he looks at the world in you know, as he doesn't like institutions, obviously, he likes he prefers personal relationships. And that's what dictatorships are. I mean dictatorships are basically personal net worth disguised as as institutions and to be honest. I feel that people like NBS an NBC would be more comfortable dealing with someone like Trump and people who who are around from orbit. Probably I definitely believe that there a lot or they're going to be uncovered. There is definitely a payback angle here. However, when it comes to the biblical story specifically on disinclined to to think that Trump was directly involved, I think the impetus over here has been the Saudis Trump is definitely an enabler. But I don't think he was the impetus when it comes to this point for this for this most recent crisis, specifically, we'll just in closing Donald Trump has defied his own intelligence community who have said unequivocally that NBS was behind the murder and dismemberment of Jamaica Shoji. He's defied the Republican controlled Senate who pasta and overwhelming resolution saying that NBS was behind it. He's now defying the United Nations who've come up with the same conclusion that NBS was behind it. So there's no question that Donald Trump is sticking his neck way out for 'em. Bs and NBS is not Saudi Arabia NBS is just one horrible corrupt. Royal of the Royal family is called that has thousands of Princess. So he's he's not indispensable. So something is going on here. You don't Trump does not go to the mat for somebody unless you get something in return? I'm looking at the reverse as well Trump is not America. I mean, Trump is not going to be able to to defend until protect NBS from US institutions forever. And this is I think the matter which is more most entrusting for observers such as myself where is this relationship going to go after Trump, well L Baghdadi, let's leave on that note. And we'll stay in touch. Thank you so much. And again, I've been speaking with ESOL Baghdadi, here's a writer and human rights activists who became prominent for tweeting and commenting on the spring.
