Biden Will Need to Rebuild International Leaders' Trust After Trump's Wrecking Ball Approach to Foreign Policy

"I think one can't overstate what has happened. In the last couple of weeks with respect to joe biden engaging on the world stage but in particular ways it's not. It's not pink cloud to pink cloud with everybody in fact. He had a tough conversation with israel's prime minister. Benjamin netanyahu and the lack of conversation with the saudi crown prince mohammad bin salman sort of sending a message to both of them to that america will have a clearer role even in the middle east. Do you think about it. You're you're trumps favorite leaders. In hamad bin. Salman was perhaps at the top of that list. The first trip down trump took as president overseas. He broke precedent. Instead of going to one of our neighbors he went to saudi arabia. And of course the leader that donald trump would never criticize was vladimir putin asking what you see is joe biden very deliberately picking venues this munich security conference where he gave that speech today. Virtually that's the venue in the heart of europe. Signalling you are friends. You are allies. Not these other guys. the agenda is different. He's talking about democracy sending up for russia. Climate change diplomacy to get back into the iran nuclear agreement so both the tone the settings and the substance is entirely different than what we've seen the last four years so ben what. This is the moment to determine whether some of those alliances have been damaged obviously g. seven is a is a key alliance. Nato is one that was undermined by by donald trump. Is everybody happy to take america back again. Are they okay to say. Let's just forget about the last four years where it's back to business. Well yes no on the one hand it just shows you how extreme the trump policy is or was that joe biden's had to go out of his way to reaffirm we are a member of nato. We honor our commitments to nato. Were back in the paris agreement. From which the us lead in negotiating. We're prepared to have diplomacy to go back into the iran agreement that we took the lead in negotiating a so. This is a sea change. I think the rest of the world particularly allies have thought on the one hand. We very much want america back back at the table back. Defending a set of values back working to solve problems like climate change or dealing with pandemics where trump had been totally absent on the other hand. They just lived the glass for years. And they're looking over don't biden shoulder and thinking who are those crazy people behind you who stormed the capital january six. Can we trust that. The americans won't do that again in four years. Can we trust though. Keep their word. If we want to negotiate a complex agreement like the paris agreement was or the iran nuclear deal. Can we trust. The americans won't just tear it up so his cask is is much harder than just making a speech in setting the right tone. He's going to have to build back. Bill ity month-by-month year-by-year initiative by initiative. Because of the wrecking ball coach. Down trump took to our alliances in our room the world.

Saudis sporting soft-power attempt

"November twenty eighth the green lights over the greed in jeddah will go out and the first saudi arabian grand prix will into life and though twenty formula one qasr raise a mightily impressive in the start of a race. They will need to rev extra to have any hope of drowning out throughout about the propriety of this event occurring at all a row to which this very explainer is about to make a modest contribution. Let's look at the undeniable upsides. I which one take too long in and of itself. The saudi arabian grand prix will doubtless be a splendid spectacle. It is to be held on a street circuit in jeddah the precise layout remains to be confirmed but it seems certain one part of the track will conduct formula one's spelt machines down the konishi the boulevard which hugs the red sea coast. And the saudis will certainly dredge deeply from the bottomless pit of money to rent the proceedings as sumptuous extravagant as possible. It might even be of crucial importance in the context of next season. The saudi arabian grand prix will be the second lost race of the year. So if two thousand and twenty one turns out not to be yet. Another procession led by lewis hamilton. The wheel of his mercedes come at the calendar man lewis. Hamilton starts an incredible qualifying. They could still be much to play playful when the teams arrive in jeddah. So that's the good news. Then there are the reasons why this edition to the formula. One calendar is the stuff of foreign desk explainers. It is hopefully not necessary to reemphasize the variety and severity of the ways in which the saudi regime is one of the world's most repressive. We do not have all day still less all month. It is suffice to say a regime which ethically inclined businesses would tend to regard from the foreign bargepole formula one does not appear overly troubled on this front in recent years alone. Races have been held in russia as a fan bahrain and china. None of whom would be within sight of the podium at any sort of grand prix of human rights. it is probably not outrageous to suggest that formula one's principal objections to holding a race meeting in north korea. Iran equatorial guinea or turkmenistan would be logistical rather than an ethical. So we know what formula one wants from this. What's more interesting is what saudi arabia is off to. Saudi arabia has some history of recognizing the immense soft power possibilities of formula one in the late nineteen seventies and early nineteen eighty s saudi state airline saudia sponsored the uk based williams team australian driver. Alan jones carried their logo to the one thousand nine hundred world championship. Tell checkered flag often goes allen jones. what a wonderful way to pay is nineteen eighteen world championship. Riyadh's re engagement with the sport is being pitched as part of the modernizing reformist agenda of ambitious saudi crown prince mohammad bin salman though it does not feel untoward lee churlish to note that nba if to whole saudi arabia into the mid nineteenth century have made some distinctly old school d to via for example conducting a ruinous rampage in neighboring yemen and dispatching hitmen to murder a vexatious journalist the un's extrajudicial executions investigator. Agnes calamar has just released a report at pains a- damning picture of saudi arabia's role in the murder of journalists jamal has all of which is tricky to square with formula one's commitment to respect for human rights which f. one has typed out on their website and everything it promises to it says he engage in meaningful consultation with relevant stakeholders in relation to any issues raised as a result of out due diligence. A sentence which could have been designed to lull readers to sleep inside four syllables. Human rights groups are already speaking of their hope that lewis hamilton who barring mishap will be defending his seventh world championship. Next season might get out in front of this. How has grown more politically outspoken. This year in particular among the slogans on the black lives matter t shirt he wore at this year's emilia romagna grand prix was women's rights are human rights. A repeat performance would give saudi broadcasters amusing connections. Saudi arabia is clearly keen on what has become known as sports washing the tactic beloved unpleasant regimes of staging sporting circuses. In the hope that they may distract from your moral infirmities and impressed with your economic progress in recent years. Saudi arabia has hosted international gulf tennis equestrian and other tournaments formula one one of the planet's most popular television spectacles. He's a massive step up.

Those questions about what a possible succession might look like the World Sharon Jafari reports the modern day kingdom of Saudi.

Since, then it's been ruled by the same royal family succession has mostly gone from father to son or brother to brother eighty four year old King Solomon took over from his brother into fifteen.

It says the king loves to read to his grandchildren so whenever he went back to New York while says he would buy books as gifts for some on. In the old culture of Saudi culture books never had pictures. That's because the ultra conservatives in the kingdom considered images to be un-islamic, so made sure I brought books a lot pictures. One time was false, as he brought by another bound copy of one thousand and One Nights, a collection of middle. Eastern folktales, and the king loved it. At the opportunity to work with online, I grew very fond of him, but while Kingston Mon- might be the most powerful official in Saudi Arabia. It's his son.

Nowadays, the process of succession is overseen by a special group of authorities yes-men. Faruk is with Carnegie in. For International, peace in Washington, the previous king had established what they call the allegiance council, which is basically a counseled from the surviving sons of the funder for NPS to become kings. She says this council would initiate a process for members of the royal family to pledge allegiance to the new king, but right now there's a problem. The Allegiance Council doesn't have had the last one died, and I think the position has been vacant for over two years now and one member at least of the allegiance council is under arrest Prince Amit faulk says NBA has been controversial figure since they want his made it his mission to consolidate power and supply line any potential competitor.

He was to show that he is the guy for the position, and he wants to make sure that there are no challenges in his way to the throne occupied. Was it all after. that. The king went to the hospital state TV showed him holding a cabinet meeting from there. That's to show that the king is alive and well, and still in charge, but nobody says it's an open secret that MBA's is actively pushing to become king while his father is still around. Why well a number of things one of them is related to the US actually Hamad bin. Salman wants to make sure that he ascends the throne while president. Trump is personally that states trump has been supportive of the crown. Prince says it's not clear if joe. Biden would do the same besides the American election does also the G. Twenty summit in November. It could be a critical moment for MBA's to show that he is in charge. And some people from the Royal Family might not be happy with Hamad bin Salman, being king, so hammered. This might ascend the throne while his father is still alive to make sure that everything goes smoothly. So where does all this leave the US?

Did the kidding of Washington Post columnist Jamal and unfortunately like many things inside Washington there is polarization and the debate is very much politicized, but let me tell you that the concern, the uncertainty about the rule of Mohammad Bin, Salman is certainly bipartisan.

2019: The year business went 'woke'

"Twenty. Nine hundred was the year when Saudi Arabia launched changed long-awaited share offering in state oil company. Aramco D- when Softbank lost its gloss when accounting giant tighten belts and when capitalism went woke. I'm I'm joined to discuss the corporate year with our companies editor. Tom Breath weight and Brooke. Masters are comment and Analysis Edison. Tom Can start with you. Can you tell L. is what happened with the Saudi Aramco IPO. Well it happened. Finally which is serve some progress because it took months and months of delay and eventually This massive oil company floated in Riyadh and now does have the two trillion dollar valuation that was so coveted by Prince. Mohammad bin Salman. Why did it take so long investor skepticism in short? I think one problem was that the Saudis would have liked to have listed this in New York which is the the biggest steepest capital market in the world but the main problem there was that they could have been sued for their alleged role in the nine eleven terrorist attack ax which Saudi Arabia has always denied it opens the window to litigation in the US which they desperately wanted to avoid so. That was one problem that the other problem was that most international investors did not think this oil company which is still fairly. Oh pay can still very much. Under the control of the Kingdom could justify the valuation valuation particularly at a time when oil prices have fallen. And when there is great concern about global companies in a world where carbon one is considered toxic change. They Saudis raise the money. Yeah well it got its public oil company to the local market in Riyadh. What it couldn't do was securer hefty amount of international investors so there was a lot of pressure on local Saudi investors? Some of whom were the same people. Who'll who were held against their will at a hotel the Ritz Carlton Reminders? What happened then? Back in two thousand seventeen. Several of Saudi Arabia's richest families were held old at the Ritz Carlton Hotel People like Prince. Alwaleed who is quite knows. International investor ended up with an enforced stay whilst their assets assets were probed by the state and ultimately some of those assets were confiscated by the state so these same people Saudi Arabia and knocked on their door and and said we'd really like you to buy into the Saudi Aramco. IPO and these people generally said yes. Yes we would very much like everyone else. We would like to buy the shares and so they did and it is floated and this little sliver of equity has been sold. And that is what justifies the two-trillion-dollar evaluation. Now it's not really like apple apple of a massive mega capps who's stock as freely traded. So if and when that ever happens we might get a more realistic assessment of what it's worth. Burke Saudis been a big investor in South Bank and the Vision Fund which. We've had corsage about this year. How Will Scaling Down with the IPO effect Saudi Arabia's ability ability to continue money into what I think we now call the troubled Japanese fund presumably? It might make it more difficult. I mean Saudis already having having to raise more money to diversify the economy and so presumably. They're not going to want to be quite to free with their cash. And of course Softbank is probably not the place that they I would like to put their money anymore. Anyway because Softbank itself by Maceo she son has taken some really big bets on companies that have not so far come good specifically specifically. I think we work would be the most obvious one. which is the shared office? Space Company tried to list and failed to at which point not only did it not sell equity but but it's lenders decided not to lend any money and Softbank had to go rescue it and its valuation has been cut significantly. I'm sure Tom knows exactly by how much he's about. Tell us I think I think from forty seven billion dollars. They tried various levels down but ultimately ends up with a sub ten billion dollar evaluation as you say failed to go public. Can they continue each trade. Yeah I mean as long as Softbank and others are willing to continue to pour cash into it because it is still heavily loss-making but the other thing they've done is scaled back their a growth strategy. So they are not spending as much money on new builds so they think they can get to somewhere near break even in the coming months. They've also filed a lot of people which helps so frank's image of takes quite a battering its credibility. How does that affect its ability to keep them investing well they have been trying to raise a second fund and it has not worked worked as well as one would hope? It's particularly problematic because as you may remember. Their first fund has an extremely unusual structure where it's not just people putting in cash. It's people putting in cash and then also they had to put in loans basically so they don't have as much cash as your classic Private Equity Fund. What have they actually have to pay interest on the money? They've got so I think if they don't have success relatively soon the way it's structured means that the lack of success will be magnified and make it that much harder for them. Son has apologized already. Instead he was to credible and he has also started putting a new governance requirements on the companies that the fund invests in food for them. I've always always been skeptical about some of the companies have invested in some of the valuations. They've invested at. They seem to have got quite late into the private tech game and got into in a massive way EH. One of the most ridiculous investments was wag this company that walks you dock for you which they've just finally pulled out of we. Work is the big characteristic Batson if that went well then or would be fine. But it hasn't so I mean Masan has this ability really proven alibaba to pick one winner that has generated a massive amounts of return. So if there's just one company within this portfolio then it could be judged a success but if you look at companies like Uber which I showed this year and his now full and a third in value if you look obviously we work and the marginal bets like y than as little really to say that this thing is going to be success for the big four. They've had quite the twelve months with so many scandals. What would you say? What did they end up this year? What's interesting is it hasn't been as bad? That is you think I mean. They have been criticized and find record fines record discipline for dreadful audits of companies that leader went bust but in an actual practical level. Their revenues are up and their dominance of the auditing business of the footsie. One hundred is up. They have taken taking a lot of terrible press. And they're probably. I'm guessing having a harder. Time recruiting best in the brightest. But I would not cry for them. The thing to remember is this time last year. The kingman kingman review was suggesting that they ought to be separating audit from other other businesses. Maybe broken up do all this stuff and then the CMA. The competition and Markets Authority authority in April said the same thing and they're going to move forward but nothing has actually happened so in fact life continues for them they still make a lot of money. KPMG I'M G. which is the one that has struggled more than the others has been involved in more of the scandals and also it has had prophets problems and so it has had to do meaningful cutbacks? Axum TRIMs They had famous where they stopped paying for people's phone calls and they took a lot of bad press. But I think it's worth remembering that. If you go back maybe a dozen years. You could've made exactly the same argument. Lots of concern about their dominance of the auditing market. Lots of concern. That audits weren't going well. This is remember post Enron and all that sort of thing and there were four them and there are four now so could they to relax a bit and feel that they've survived the structure phone calls over. This will come back. It's not clear. Their regulator has a new person. WHO's in charge of WHO is actually a serious guy and it is possible? He will try to do more at the moment. There's no legislation giving power to him to do more. It will really depend on how much Boris Johnson government cares about this stuff. I mean it was on the agenda of the previous government. Is it now. We don't

Saudi Oil Field Attacked

Saudi Oil Field Attacked

"The Middle East and global oil markets are reeling after Saudi Arabia's oil infrastructure was severely damaged a huge attack this weekend and on Saturday missiles hit an oilfield at a processing plant in the east of the country residents hosted video on social media showing explosions interrupting the Don Call to prayer and huge fires raging iranian-backed rebels in neighbouring Yemen known as the WHO claimed responsibility but it's uncertain they carried out the attack in any case the bombing seems to be the latest salvo simmering proxy battle between Iran and its allies on one side and America alongside Saudi Arabia on the other who the rebels in Yemen who plays this attack have attacked Saudi Arabia many times in the past few years and those tax have been getting bigger but what we saw on Saturday was more serious and unusual than anything before to Sean Joshi is our defense editor. It was eight hundred kilometers into Saudi Arabia so that that very far in from over the Yemeni border if indeed the attack did come from Yemen and and more importantly it struck what was one of the most important components of Saudi Arabia's oil production capability both oilfield and a processing plant and on top of all of that it risks dramatically escalating tensions between Iran which supports the youth rebels and America Saudi Arabia's ally which is currently strangling around economy with sanctions so the scope escalation is now a much greater than it was so America backs Saudi Arabia and has has been working on its policy towards Iran maximum pressure and and what have you how has the trump administration responded to the attacks well. It was over twitter of course Donald Trump hinted at military action. He said America was locked and loaded and Mike Pompeo the secretary of state suggested the strikes didn't come from Yemen. They probably came from Iran particularly around Revolution regards or its proxy forces in Iraq which which are composed of lots of a mostly Shia militia groups some of the reporting that has come out in the past twenty four hours suggests that Iraq might have been the base for the attacks particularly with Iraqi militia groups eager to retaliate for Israeli strikes on their bases there a few weeks ago although the Iraqi prime minister has denied it America also said the strikes were very big they involve both cruise missiles and drones and lots of them which may suggest it could have been a little beyond the abilities of the WHO `this which again would probably point to Iranian culpability. That's correct. Iran's foreign minister has of course denied it he said Mike Pompeo American Secretary of State had failed at maximum Axum imprescia which is the official. US policy on Iran and had moved now to maximum deceit so of course we see we as usual complete denial from Iran and loss of finger pointing from America so with all of that finger pointing going on and all over the potential for escalation. What what do you think happens next well. If it wasn't ron it would be the the latest in a series of provocations that we've seen in the region going back to May when we had alleged attacks on international shipping with mines we had hostage taking of International Tanka spot by Romanian forces and we had the shoot down of an American drone which nearly took us to the brink of airstrikes in late June which were cancelled by trump on hours notice the had been some hopes in recent weeks that we will potentially seeing a little bit of de-escalation. Mike pompeo suggested that Donald Trump might meet his Iranian counterpart Hasaan John Ronnie at the sidelines of the General Assembly that would have been obviously a historic meeting between an American President and an Iranian leader that looks very unlikely now trump has tweeted angrily denying any such thing and this attack of course might represent Iranian hardliners specifically trying to frustrate that sort of diplomacy by Aronie and others so I think diplomacy is now is much less likely it's very hard to conduct any kind of meaningful talks in this in this environment and there's a risk of escalation either by Saudi Arabia whom this is really bad blow all by America and I wouldn't rule out military escalation if we find that more evidence comes is to light showing Iran's hand in this so not notwithstanding the risks of of greater escalation as things stand right now. What does all this mean for Saudi Arabia and for oil production under markets it eats a big blow to Saudi Arabia. The attack cools the suspension of production equivalent to about sixty percent of the kingdom's output which is about six percent of the world's oil production as soon as markets open today in Asia oil prices soared by about twenty percent and reports seemed to suggest the repairs are going to take take weeks which means there's going to be quite a long effect on prices and all of this comes at a time when the the the Saudi state oil giant Aramco was was looking to list to do its initial public offering. How do you think this will reflect on that not terribly well. It is a particularly delicate time for Saudi Arabia who state oil company. Aramco is by far all the world's largest oil company it was preparing to launch a portion of its shares in what was expected to be the largest initial public offering ever as part of VAT. The Chairman of Aramco had just been replaced. The Energy Minister of Saudi Arabia was shunted aside so investors already a little concerned about some of the uncertainty not and security of supply is a big concern to potential investors it lies at the heart of what Saudi Aramco's able to do it make Saudi Arabia not not just a very big oil producer but also a critical player in world oil markets very important geopolitical plan so attacks like this one call into question security is supply and a very bad news for the Saudi leadership and so what are Saudi Arabia's options here well in some ways. Donald Trump has put the ball all into Saudi Arabia's Court with his latest tweet he said the US was waiting to hear from the kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack and under what terms we we would proceed in other words. He's challenging Saudi Arabia to publicly blame her on in the way that America has and essentially to put its cards on the table. If it wants wants to see a robust American reaction now Saudi Arabia usually would fall in line behind America. They are very close allies. There's a very strong relationship. Between the Saudi Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman Donald Trump in the face of an attack like this. They have a very complicated calculation. They absolutely want to push America to throw the gauntlet down to to Iran to put Iran leadership in place to deter Iran from attacks like this but I think they're also concerned about the prospect of escalation about the prospect of moral facilities ability being struck missiles falling Saudi cities a bigger war that would have a huge impact on their economy perhaps on their regime and so this is a crunch point for them. I think they have to decide side. How much do they want to proud donald trump onto action and how much they want to proceed cautiously aware of the enormous stakes for the kingdom itself.

Hatice Cengiz's mission: Don't forget Jamal Khashoggi

"I'm with ruler Caliph the deputy editor of the F. T. and she's had recently rather astonishing interview. She met recently Hattie's challenges who of course found herself at the center of an international drama indeed something of a horror story last October. This is when the young Turkish academic were seen waiting outside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul for her fiance who never appeared that man of course was the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi details of whose murder at the hands of Saudi the thugs would leak out over the coming days and weeks so so really just start by telling us. What is the state of the investigation into Khashoggi's death? Well depends what you mean by investigation and which investigation in Saudi Arabia Arabia a group of people are being put on trial but we know very little about this trial elsewhere. There has been a U._N.. report by a U._N.. Expert on the murder however that report does not or have any legal basis it only makes recommendations and it has recommended an impartial international investigation for that to happen however you would need you on Security Council approval and I don't expect that exactly exactly 'cause you're touching on the really important point of the sort of full out of this whole saga namely. It doesn't look as if we're going to be many repercussions for the Saudi regime does it and why is that. I think that there were initially some repercussions for the. The Saudi regime mainly reputational a lot of business. People and political figures stayed away from Saudi Arabia. There was a bit conference. That was a flop but I think over time things of return to normal. I don't think the reputation of the Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman the man we know as and BS will ever really fully recover but I think that once Western governments and especially the U._S. government can't say that doing business with Saudi Arabia's fine he was for example at the g twenty in fact Saudi Arabia is going to be hosting the g twenty next year that is kind of rehabilitation Saudi Arabia hosting the g twenty year stunning given all that happened and imagine particularly appalling news for your lunch companion. The other day had tease Chang who is campaigning passionately for Kashoggi's motorists to be brought to justice. is is Here a clip now so I want to know who gave the order to kill them out and who else knew I want to know. Where is his body? I implore you to take action darkness essay. It is time for sanctions so that was her tease. Chang is speaking at the U._N.. Human Rights Council in Geneva last month. The Agnes was referring to as Agnes Calamar the special reporter on extrajudicial killings who had in fact just revealed called the results of this investigation you talking about ruler which found quote credible evidence clothes quotes that senior Saudis implicated in Mr Kashoggi's murder but let's turn to at t's challenges this was a powerful and really poignant. Poignant interview you had to do rule tell us what impression did you make. It was obviously a painful interview. It's painful for her to speak about Sharma but I think she's also now very driven. She is so frustrated by the silence she so frustrated by the fact that there has been no action that she's now turned this into her mission. Jomo Hachioji was essentially fighting for human rights. It's this is what he was writing about and she now feels that she has to take up that fight as I write in my lunch with the F. T. she now knows that she is part of the story. She's been studying the Middle East for a long time and now she feels that she's become one of its victims and there are so many of them so she was fighting back tears the whole lunch at one point when she tells me about the nights when she knew for sure that Jamal was dead. That's when her tears came rushing down one of the many things that struck me about her accounting hug conversation with you was relatively brief had in her relationship with Jamalco. Gee I mean they don't known each other for a few months. I wonder if you could just say a little bit about how they met in the nature of their relationship yes they only met in May of last year they met at a conference about the Gulf in Istanbul. Jamaa was speaking at that conference and she had only known him as someone who should seen on T._v.. She'd read him. She was very interested in Saudi Arabia and she was very keen to interview him about what. What was going on in Saudi Arabia what he was writing about and so she just goes up to him and introduces herself and says can we talk? Can you give me a few minutes and she speaks to him in Arabic because she speaks pretty fluent Arabic and I think that impresses impresses Jamal and so they meet up he asks her by Turkish awesome about Saudi and then she contact him again to tell him when the story is going to be published and two. I think check some quotes that's next time he goes to Turkey. They meet up again but this was a very quick romance in many ways but from what she told me this also has to do with the fact that Jemaah was in a very uncomfortable place ace at the time he was sort of looking for a new life. He'd been exiled in the U._S.. He was on his own so he was looking for a companion and he was very depressed and I think that they found in each other. You know the person she understood him. He understood her and so yes. This was a marathon romance. When he was murdered? He was writing columns for the Washington Post but as his then fiancee points out in this interview he actually in previous part of his life. He'd been an advisor to some members of the Saudi Royal Family Herself says in this interview one of the many powerful lines she says Jamal was from the palace not from outside it. He was not their enemy. Can you tell us why were they so frightened of him. Why did they have to kill him well? It's a very good question Alec. I don't think that anyone really knows why they were so frightened of him but it is also possible that they weren't that frightened of him. They had a strategy. Ah of silencing anyone who was critical of the Crown Prince Jamal wasn't the only one many of journals friends who stayed in Saudi Arabia are in jail and this new regime demint Saudi Arabia requires not only that you don't criticize they require that you approve the reason Jamal had left was because he did not want to engage and to support award a very hostile strategy towards cutter he was required to write in support of the strategy and that's where he drew the line and so there is such an intolerance that even someone who is only a writer actually not a writer who schooling for revolution a writer who wants Saudi Arabia to correct and to move on a better path. I mean you can even argue that much of what he was. Writing was advice to the crown prince but there is zero tolerance. It's not going to be easy for her. T snow is it nearly a year has passed as you said earlier for some parts of the sort of Western business in foreign policy establishment is not quite business as usual but they are going to re apply some of those ties to Saudi. What do you see happens to her now to? She pursue this cause at U._N.. How does she make any headway? I found and her to be very determined. I think that she wants to use the Kalama a report to try to put pressure on Western governments but may be more broadly she. Will become a voice that is just fighting for human rights at some point. I imagine she would even have to address that in Turkey. Because of course there are a lot of journalists who are jailed elden Turkey for hottest today. Her cause is Jamal but I think that she may also in the future want to broaden her course that it's not Jamaa and the Truth About Jamaa which I'm sure she will continue to fight for but YEP. She may very well be campaigner for human rights all is thrust upon her shoulders after just knowing him for a few months extraordinary I think we should end with a clip from Matisse which is also something of a call to arms from in her and she said this at the U._N.. Session in Geneva last month echoing what she said to you in this remarkable interview it's not only my below Jamal who was more that they but also democracy human rights and freedoms the failure to punish murderers F._X.. Also Mr Chair the truth always wins. He's story. We'll take note of those who stood with through and those who did not police take action.

That's created the Twitter storm that really is what has allowed her to stay where she is and possibly get to Australia, which is where she was planning to go, and which she currently had a visa for in the passport that was confiscated. So this all that going on? But I think as you say the the wider aspect of this is that Saudi Arabia is not enjoying a good global image of the moment.

Sched the image of the crown prince when he first came to where when he first came to power when it was he was thought of being maybe bit more enlightened going to bring Saudi into the molten age, and really it's been almost backwards since then, and I think in the international context that's been a huge help to the goal. Who is now. I mean, I it looks as though she certainly at the moment protected, and as though she'll be allowed to go to a stranger.

I think this stage after we've had the initial bought up by the Thai authorities everybody is playing it safe. So today, I saw that the sherline government is saying that this case is no different than any other. It'll be processed by UNHCR. And that once they do their report, then the Australian government will process the case normally there is a slight question of diplomacy here. I think Australia is very keen not to necessarily put pressure on the government about this case. The Thai government is keen not to make any moves. That would interrupt the UNHCR's moves here to make sure that they don't invite any further criticism. And then the Saudi it will be very interesting to see what happens the Saudi tie relations after. Both of these cases are process because obviously this won't disrupt the relationship, but certainly in the region the region it self is Southeast Asia's kind of recalibrating its relations with Saudi Arabia and again this bad publicity. And the fact that Thailand seems to be the conduit for a number of these I was about say distance. But in this case is not a disadvantage just individuals who want to get out of the region. This could become a bigger issue. If tile and more more individuals go through Thailand to do this. I should ask you on. That point. Does does Thailand feel any pressure in the region to to to sort about Saudi Arabia or what they want or are they do they have their own? You mentioned earlier the military government that can do what they want. But are they feeling any pressure on this at all from Saudi Arabia? I don't think that there's I'm not sure there's much leverage that Saudi Arabia has on Thailand. In certainly the the bigger relationships with for Saudi Arabia in the region or in Malaysia and Indonesia for maybe for obvious reasons. But this is something that, you know, this is a headache that the government does not need right now. And and actually to be honest Thailand itself has already been put under huge amounts of scrutiny over the last four years since the government's come to power in terms of human trafficking records. So it wants to appear like it's doing things above board in this case, I mean to defer quickly the I think the one of the issues with her is that the Thai authorities contacted the Saudi.

"Netflix has pulled an episode of a comedy show that criticized Saudi Arabia's role in the murder of journalist Jamal ca Xiaojie in comedian Hassam Monagas show the Patriot Act he calls out crown prince Mohammad bin Salman for allegedly ordering the death of Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. A warning this clip from that episode uses offensive language blows my mind that it's the killing of a Washington Post journalist for everyone to go. Oh, I guess he's really not a reformer. Meanwhile, every Muslim person, you know, was like, yeah. No, he's the crown prince of Saudi Arabia now, it was the the concluded that bin Salman ordered a group of Saudis to fly to Turkey in October and kill algae. And then cover up his death. Saudi officials deny the crown prince ordered the killing and threatened legal action against net flicks under a Saudi anti-cyber crime law. So let's bring in WBRC Kalemba. Shire's who's been following this story? I call him. It's so fascinating. You know what? How what control the Saudi Arabia have over Netflix? So they pulled the episode in Saudi Arabia. It is available in other places around the world. So talk about this legal threat that convinced net flicks to cave there. And what what does this mean? Well, Saudi Arabia's sent a letter to Netflix citing a law that prohibits quote, material impinging on public order religious values and public morals now, that's very broad, Robin. It basically means the government can can censor anything that they don't like. And what's striking to me is that the whole episode reinforces the point that assignment, I was making in that clip that you just played you know, it puts the lie to the idea that Mohammed bin Salman was going to be a reformer. And meanwhile, you have Menasheh who raised his profile here in the US by criticizing our government at the White House correspondents dinner just a couple of years ago. And when he takes similar jab at the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, he gets yanked from that country. Let's talk about the reaction Jamaica, Xiao, she's. Former editor at the Washington Post. Karen Attiyah tweeted, it's quite outrageous that net flicks. Pull the episode. Social media is calling out Netflix for bowing to censorship. So what is net flicks? I'm what does Manati about that? Well Near Net enough is suggested as well that it really had no choice. It said that it received a valid legal requests from Saudi Arabia. I say the counter to that is, you know, the guardian newspaper has pointed out that the punishment for violating this law. In question is a fine of about eight hundred thousand dollars or up to five years in prison. So I mean that paid hundred thousand dollars chump change for Netflix. And as far as the imprisonment. There is no way Saudi Arabia was going to be able to extradite and imprison Hassan montage in this scenario. So I think it's reasonable to wonder whether perhaps they could have stood up to Saudi Arabia and called their well, they've been a hidden Saudi Arabia. So maybe a business decision air shows like Marvel's iron fist house cards, very popular there just. Very if you got a minute other tech companies that have Saudi investments Uber. Lifts slack. Have any of them broken ties yet not completely, you know, some of the companies did pull out of that big Saudi investment conference back in October? But the longer term business calculation of really everyone has been that the business ties to Saudi Arabia are just too valuable to cut and the irony is that was actually part of Mirages comedy routine too. So here's Netflix producing a show where assignment I slams companies for not standing up to Saudi Arabia, and the Netflix doesn't really stand up to Saudi Arabia's Columba's senior innovation reporter at WBZ our mothership Collin. Thanks so much to be with you. On twelve of the government shutdown. America's national parks are feeling the impact many of them have stayed open. But they don't have the staff there to enforce rules collect entrance fees and even.

We're not going to be selling anymore weapons to the Saudis till the the prince fess up and this could get ugly between us and mimic. It get very very ugly. Number six, Christine Blasi Ford. I would have to put her on that list too. But I also would put cavenaugh that list, but it's much as I hated her. I would put her on the list and time magazine looks at her as the college psychology. Professor fifty three years old who became a symbol for survivors of sexual assault as she testified against well in front of senators in September about the allegations against the supreme court nominee at the time. And now judge Brett Cavanaugh. Now, here's the one hour. I said I enjoy his work. He comes in at number five. I'm not sure why he's there on this list. He's a very young. I think he's only about thirty one thirty two. So film director Ryan cooler, he created this year's phenomenally successful film called the Black Panther. I loved it. And it was a superhero movie set in the fictional f- African country of what Kanda and it featured a largely black cast. That's probably why it was there. It had the it was the third highest grossing film in America of all time. He also did the movie creed which I saw for the first time this weekend kind of a late comer to that. I loved the movie, and I I watched because I was bored. And I thought I was going to hate it because I'm just done with all rocky thing. But. I gotta tell you. I thought it was great. And I can't wait for creed. Too. I can't wait. I thought it was really really good surprise surprise for me. Anyway, I dug it I really really dug it. So Ryan Kugler comes in at number five number four. I have to agree with this one to Robert Muller for very obvious reason. You know? Time magazine calls it one of their very featured runners up special counsel continue to investigate this whole Russian hoax. Key figure of two thousand eighteen. And that's all I really need to say about the guy. You know, you absolutely though coming in at number three Vladimir Putin. I don't know why he's so high on this list, but you know, he secured another landslide victory in the country's March elections. I'm sure he had plenty to do with that himself, you know, extending his term another six years against a I'd have to say a major backdrop of scrutiny over Russia's involvement in the two thousand sixteen election, which I'm getting sick of you're getting sick of, you know, the poisoning of the ex Russian spy in the UK that really was a big deal and also as of late here, we go again, the increasing tensions with Ukraine. The last time I was in Ukraine that was going on. They were at the border in the eastern part of the country. And that was a very big deal. Very unnerving. To the Ukrainians number two separated families. Very very politically. Correct. I think that's the only reason why they're on their, you know, according to time magazine more than two thousand families were separated at the US border this year under the Trump administration a policy aimed at deterring illegal immigration, prompting a lot of backlash zero tolerance policy was announced in April formally ended in June resulting in thousands of children being held in federal government facilities while their parents were sent to jail. Why didn't time magazine or anybody else in the media acknowledge President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama for doing exactly the same thing? In fact, President Obama's tactics were so bad. The federal judge told him to cool it right here in the state of California. Yeah. Very true. Very very true. But of course, that doesn't count when the president happens to be somebody like President Trump who is number one on this list. And I don't even have to go into the reasons why do I who's missing? Who is missing I will tell you who's missing on my list when we get back from Cam J news update, you think about who's missing on your list and get ready to call me and tell me who that is.

"I'm we ought to give them a few more days to complete that. So that we do have a complete understanding of the facts surrounding that which point we can make decisions about how the United States should respond to. The incidents surrounding Mr. Shoghi. So do you have a problem with the president's pace in this investigation? And do you agree. The secretary of state's advice to the president to give the Saudi some time. I think asking Saudi Arabia to do a transparent and complete investigation of what happened to Jamal kashogi is like asking OJ Simpson to do an investigation of who killed the coal Brown. Clearly, the Saudis were involved in this clearly it was a Saudi hit squad that killed. This guy did were their direct orders from the crown prince, Mohammad bin Salman and Bs. I don't know. But I think that whoever did it knew that he would he would like it and wasn't a upset with it. And my guess is he wouldn't do it without his approval. And I, you know, we do have a real dilemma here because it was a horrible attack. It was a barbaric action on their part how they ever thought they were gonna get away with it. I don't know. But having said that we do have a relationship with Saudi Arabia that you can't just blow up we depend on them for cheap oil. We depend on them as a as a counterweight to Iran and a source of stability in the Middle East. But. You can't let this go unpunished. And even if he wanted to there are a lot of top members of congress, including a lot of top Republicans, like Lindsey Graham like Bob corker, like our guest on Sunday. Rand Paul who were saying I don't care what our relationship is was with Saudi Arabia. You can't just let this pass and act as if nothing happened here Chris book, what is enough what is enough? So you said you you admit that you can't blow up the relationship the president thinks out loud. You don't have to get a source within the White House. That says the president's mindset is he actually tells you he said, this is bad. If this is true if he knew about it. It's real bad. All right. Let's we don't know. But if there is a tape if they show, it's real bad. What is enough? I don't know that. I mean, I I'll be honest. I don't know. But I think you have to do something that hurts that says to the world that we don't countenance that that that is not the way the US and US allies act. And you know, I don't, you know, people are saying, well, we need to get NBS out of their last time. I checked I don't think we have control over the Royal family. But but I will say does somebody said that that the NBS mama bin on the crown prince really running country betrayed us because we've put a lot of effort. I mean, this was the first trip. President Trump took in two thousand seventeen first foreign trip was to Saudi Arabia. We put a lot of eggs in that basket and for him to act in such a wanton, reckless fashion. Really undercuts us in the in the Middle East and around the world. So, you know, he's he's not a very dependable ally. There's no question about it. And keep this in mind, if you have a pen handy, you might want to jot this down rand Paul doesn't want us in the Middle East at all. It sounds like he's saying I was supporting Saudi Arabia until this killing he wants out of Afghanistan. He wants his out of Iraq wants his ad. Not so long about Lindsey Graham, Lindsey Graham doesn't feel that way. I know. I'm just saying the guests that you have is already. He felt that way. Because I trust your appearance tonight. You're now going to trash my guess nice. Well, I I'm not saying, they're unrelated. I'm not saying they're running late, but Lindsey Graham did say on our show. He's calling for that crown prince, Stephen even a new cramp prince to come in. He likes. Do we get a vote and who the crown prince of Saudi Arabia's? I punched my balance. You didn't you do you have a hanging Jack an absentee ballot. Oh, you do. Okay. So now so now on the folks in Tampa, they die still loving this header what the heck did we got ourselves into? Listen, I think we did the impossible we woven. We revealed the relationship that we have with each other will reveal support me and my time of relationship. And then when I when I talked substance, I think we gave the audience something. So I think that this is this is something that broadcasting students in universities around the country will be studying. Okay. Which is and this actually affects Florida our power player of the week. You could see where a little light on gas. We're still we're still working on this. But our power player of the week Jose Andres who is one of the world famous chefs has Michelin starred restaurants, it, you know, you have to spend a fortune to go to one of his restaurants. But he has started something called the world's central kitchen. Whenever there's a natural disaster. He goes there to do it. And he's right now in the panhandle in Panama, and Mexico beach. And he is feeding tens of thousands of Floridians every day and instead of doing this perfect little appetizers. He is cooking vats of Stu, and and making thousands of sandwiches is cooked already more than fifty thousand meals since last Sunday, and we're going to talk to him about food relief and about helping helping people see he is in the business. It's not all about him. He's in the business helping other people, and I think actually. You could learn from him. Thank you. It all comes back to a lesson for me house. Could you jot that down help other people I keep forgetting that Chris Wallace? When the see you Sunday. Okay. Well, thank you. And and folks, I I would advise you to watch because who knows this could be the first and only appearance. It ever in this in this show by Brian Kilmeade.

Shannon is in London with the chargers. Gary is flying one of the Thunderbirds this morning, and he'll join the show, right? After his flight talk about his experience also real quickly. I was looking Fox News. You know, I have FOX and CNN up on the wall, the screens and the Fox News at the bottom of the crawl said Rosie O'Donnell is asking the US military to throw out the president. Why is that news because some crazy ass actress says something just stupid, and somehow becomes a news item? What am I missing here? That's that's news. Who decided that? Oh, Rosie O'Donnell says this and says something stupid. Okay. Fine. Huge news because she's such a. Major major a player, isn't she? Wow. Okay. Go figure how does that work, by the way, our news person? Jen who comes up with say. Oh, yeah. That's important. Rosie O'Donnell said this who makes that decision. Well, I mean, it kind of depends usually it's somebody with good news judgment. Who goes this needs to make it onto the air. I'd like to know who's working this morning. Yeah. For sure. All right news. Why is kashogi disappearance? It is big news. But is captured the outrage and media attention all over the world, and it's been going on since October two two and a half weeks. And it still headline news now think of this moment, and that is the coalition that is headed by Saudi Arabia in Yemen has killed thousands civilians in August, forty children who school bus. This was wrongly bombed inadvertently bombed forty kids were killed. That was huge news which disappeared after two days. Saudi officials have jailed dissidents and business people and clerics and journalists. Royal rivals to crown prince, Mohammad bin Salman. None of these atrocities have reached the same outrage as this one. And why is you try to figure this out? Well, first of all people in the news and those of us in the world of talk. You never know what's going to have legs. I mean, there's obviously certain things major catastrophes. Major floods earthquakes that's to be big news. The president declaring war on North Korea. That's big news. But other stories in the news, for example, let's say there's a little girl who's been kidnapped. And all sudden that becomes the story. In the meantime, four other little girls been kidnapped in about the same time area, a time timeline that is not news. So that's one thing. You never know when a story actually gets lakes. The other thing is the closer the person is to us the more. We can relate. A little boy trapped in a well is bigger news than a bus full of people two hundred people on a bus in India because you know, how they cram people into buses goes over a bridge, and you've got thirty nine deaths. But that little boy we can relate to. And why is that because it's closer to us. Also, it's an individual kashogi is one person. Thousands of civilians are thousands of civilians. That's a statistic. I think it was Joseph Stalin who said one death is a tragedy. Millions of deaths are is. Artistic? And I think that says it all and also the closer when I say closer to us. I'm talking about culture, we're talking about ethnicity. I'm talking about geography, so kashogi, basically, an American journalist. I mean, he Saudi but he lived in the United States. Worked for the Washington Post. So he's to a great extent. He's one of us. And he is captured and tortured and dismembered by a foreign government where governments don't do this western governments of which Saudi Arabia sort of quasi western government. I mean, we look at it in terms of having much the same values granted they chop people's heads off, which in many cases is not a bad idea. And they don't treat women all that. Well, and there's whole argument about women for God's sake. There is in understand that part of it. But they're close enough to us. It's an individual story. It's someone we can relate to it. Someone who lived here that is a massive story. Also, it's a geopolitical story having to do with a a fairly new head of state Mohammed bin Salman who is connected to the United States who came over here and he did his victory lap. I think it was earlier this year. Where Hollywood, and you have all the celebrities, and you had politicians and you head heads of industry that we're all kowtowing there. Jennifer genuflecting to him as he came over. Because he is the reformer. Well in reality is you may not be such a reformer. This guy may be an autocrat, and he probably is. And in fact, one of the guys that he showed up with when he came here to the US is the guy who went into the consulate Jessica forecast show is. So the story is Agatha Christie to this. There is which by the way, Sunday, I'm going to see murder on the Orient Express. Oh, just to let you know and very excited about that just a quick aside. And in any case, I it's it makes all it has all the markings of a story that shouldn't be as big as it is. It's one guy. Right. One person. How many people died on October two in an atrocity was tortured somewhere in the world that where would have been big news or at least moderate news. And look at this this exploded, I mean, try to figure this out. But in the end, January news person, I can you ever figure out? What story goes, and what story doesn't go? No. I mean in some ways you can. I mean like you were saying right obvious ones. But it just depends. It depends on who. It's connected to it depends on the legs. How many legs just went have one? Like one story can have two major legs to it. And it's going to be the headline days. But if it doesn't have a lot of far-reaching tentacles it's gonna go away after two days. This one has so many far reaching tentacles. And you never know, for example, the same same thing happens on the internet. How what do we know? That's going to go viral. Right. The cat eating and in and out burger. Oh my God. That's that's viral. But the cat eating a bird. Burger King burger off for some reason. I didn't go any good reason. No, all right. Coming up tuition is way up the student debt crisis is way worse. And that's a big problem in a booming economy when it shouldn't be happening. I'll share that with you. When we come back.

Really undercuts us in the in the Middle East and around the world. So, you know, he's he's not a very dependable ally. There's no question about it. And keep this in mind, if you have a pen handy, you might want to jot this down rand Paul doesn't want us in the Middle East at all. It's not like he's saying I was supporting Saudi Arabia until this killing he wants out of Afghanistan. He wants his out of Iraq. Wants this ad. About Lindsey Graham, Lindsey Graham doesn't feel that way. I know. I'm just saying the guests that you have is already. He felt that way. Because I trust your appearance tonight. You're now going to trash my guess nice. Well, I I'm not saying, they're unrelated. I'm not saying anyway, but Lindsey Graham did say our show. He's calling for that crown prince to leave at a new cramp prince to come in. He likes. Do we get a vote and who the crown prince of Saudi Arabia's I punched my ballot. You didn't you you have a hanging back on an absentee ballot. Oh, you do. Okay. Now on the folks in Tampa, are they are they still loving does header they themselves. What the heck did we got ourselves into? Let's see I think we did the impossible we woven. We revealed the relationship that we have with each other will reveal that you don't support me. And my. Apec a relationship. And then when I when I talked substance, I think we gave the audience something. So I think that this is this is something that broadcasting students in universities around the country will be studying. Okay. Something else. We've got which is and this actually affects Florida our power player of the week. You can see we're a little light on gas. We're still we're still working on this. But our power player of the week Jose Andres who is one of the world famous chef says Michelin starred restaurants, it, you know, you have to spend a fortune to go to one of his restaurants. But he has started something called the world central kitchen, and whenever there's a natural disaster. He goes there to do it. And he's right now in the panhandle in Panama City, and Mexico beach. And he is feeding tens of thousands of Floridians every day and instead of doing this perfect little appetizers. He is cooking vats of stew and pie and making thousands of sandwiches is cooked already more than fifty thousand meals since last Sunday, and we're going to talk to him about food relief and about helping helping people see he is in the business. It's not all about him. He's in the business helping other people, and I think actually. If you could learn from him, thank you. It all comes back to a lesson for make could you jot that down help other people I keep forgetting that Chris Wallace. When the you Sunday. Okay. Well, thank you. And and folks, I would advise you to watch because who knows this could be the first and only appearance it ever in this in this show by Brian Kilmeade.

"There. The body of missing journalists Jamal kashogi was cut into pieces apparently after he was killed two weeks ago at the Saudi consulate in his stab will Turkey's the claim which was I made to the New York Times earlier in the investigation into kashogi Sfeir comes after Turkish officials searched the council it for nine hours on Monday night. Turkish officials. I've said privately that kashogi was killed in the consulate on October second after he arrived to obtain papers that would've allowed him to marry his Turkish fiance. Saudi Arabia has previously insisted that he left the building alive. I thought we check in with Howard bloom our expert on the global brain Howard. What's your take on this bizarre story hazing when it comes to the murder of dramatic kashogi all may not be as it seems far from it? We're told it on the orders of a high level Saudi intelligence officer fifteen Saudi hitman boarded a plane in Saudi Arabia, flew to stumbled Turkey and laid in wait at the Saudi embassy to ambush kashogi when he came in to do the paperwork necessary, Mary his living girlfriend who as you said is Turkish her show. He is a journalist who was once close to get this the New York ruler Saudi Arabia crown prince, Mohammad bin Salman who went to high school with Osama bin Laden was so trusted by. Saudi Royal family that he was allowed to add a two major Saudi newspapers. I'll what town in Europe times kashogi made a mistake in two thousand and sixteen just after Trump was elected president. He criticized Donald Trump. He said the Trump's attempt to closer relations with Russia would also bring Trump closer to Saudi Arabia's arch enemy, Iran. I country that the Russian ally Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner, we're tight with the Saudi royals show. He's criticism displeased. The crown prince though in Saudi Arabia kashogi was banned from print and media totally couldn't print a word. He took refuge in the United States and became a regular contributor to the Washington Post is showbiz. Connection with the Washington Post may have made him a useful tool for the church. Great disadvantage. We're told the ca- show. He walked into the Saudi embassy as you said and never walked out supposedly was tortured interrogated killed and cut off the pieces were they bone saw all in the Saudi embassy building in Instanbul for the killers. We were told we're close to prince Mohammad bin Salman, the weird is all of this information, come from George. It doesn't come from American intelligence sources. It comes from the Turkish government the government of Turkey's dictator and cheap retro type aired one and where air once loyalties lie not with the United States and the western alliance. I look on paper Turkey is a notamment NATO member that air to one has turned his back on the NATO nations. Instead, he has formed a tripartite alliance with guests who Russia and Iran. The head of the tripartite alliance is Vladimir Putin, and what is lottery Putin's primary goal to divide and conquer the western alliance to isolate the United States. Dates to strip America of its allies Saudi Arabia's gonna close US ally since nineteen thirty three. So how'd you manage the separate Saudi Arabia from the United States, you kidnap and kill a Washington Post writer, then blame it on the savage, and you encourage Americans to react with outrageous this crime against reading the breath could Turkey ever pull off at the central like this. You bet. One has a history of deception two thousand sixteen the aim to get a Pearl elementary majority. That would approve a new constitution making him dictator for life, but he fell short of the majority. So what did he do he pretended that the Kurds had attacked and he attacked her religious viciously Lateran toss all the Kurds out of the parliament and do increase the proportion of his followers in the legislative body. But that was not enough to give him the power that he craved in July two thousand sixteen. There was in one seat him. He took advantage of the emergency powers to toss over one hundred thousand people who didn't support him out of their jobs and to jail tens of thousands of them. But who actually perpetrated that coup? I suspect it was aired one himself how could air to one's jar ops. Forces have created the impression of a murder that would separate the Saudis and the Americans focus on a Saudi writer for the Washington Post. That's an interesting theory. Howard bloom, we'll have to keep. Watching this one. Thank you. So have you ever taken an Uber? Listen to this story. Uber technologies recently received proposals from Wall Street banks valuing the ride hailing company as much as a hundred and twenty billion dollars in an initial public offering that could take place earlier next year. That's an amazing story. Archaeologists in Italy have uncovered and inscription that they say may show that the history books have been wrong for centuries about Pompeii historians have long believed that mount Vesuvius erupted on August twenty fourth seventy nine AD destroying the nearby Roman city of pay. But now an inscription has been uncovered dated mid October almost two months later.

Affects children of those thirty states said that they had cases that were confirmed suspected or being investigated, including fifteen states that said they had confirmed cases in two thousand eighteen in total forty seven confirmed cases and forty nine more were suspected or being investigated for a total of ninety six. It's a bizarre story. Dr Gary Ridenour with us scary. What's going on here? Well, George this is a real mystery tonight, this flaccid paralysis is been around for three or four years in the United States, and it hits the voluntary nerves in your spinal cord not.

"And he said that Jamal said that he said he is im- jailing their own people. He said that in a column he wrote in the Washington Post a year ago. Yeah. And I think. College. You indicated that that was the column and I've got here in front of me now Tober thirty first, two thousand seventeen Saudi Arabia's crown prince wants to crush extremists, but he's punishing the wrong people that that was the column that really put him on the wrong track with the Saudi Royal family with NBS himself and did was Jamal aware of that that that column really had ruffled feathers back in Riyadh. He probably did, especially that article came in the middle of this charm campaign that the Saudis and prince Mohammad bin Salman was having they spend hundreds of millions of dollars in the US and the west to selling the idea that he's reformer that he's going to change Saudi Arabia into the twenty first century that he's going to build these huge projects and transform the economy into non oil economy. All these big promises. So for someone to come on right, something like this that saying the guy's not really what he is telling the world. He is for the anger Hamad a law, and you indicated, I believe that in one of your conversations with him a few months back that he had told you that the Saudis had. We're trying to lure him back to Riyadh, offering him a job. Tell us what he told you about that and what his reaction to that was. Oh, he told me that. So funny. So I'm caught. Funny is. A close advisor to prince Mohammad bin Salman. He has the title of ministers. That's a cabinet. He called your mom, and he asked him through term and he told him to come prince would love him back. And he would like to give him a position as an adviser close adviser. He said, we know you're loyal Saudi, you love your country and we love you and the call came early in the morning. He didn't tell me what Tuohy said it's early. He would discuss this at nine fifteen the morning few hours before I saw him. He had called. So I said, so what do you think? Would you go? He said, no way I could me said, I don't trust them on bit. And why didn't he trust them? He knew you knows your mind was part of the Saudis Schmidt. He worked with the king of the line. His close, he worked with confides and close circle was very close to family. He was. Adviser to Prince Turki who was the head of the Saudi intelligence before he worked for him..
