Does the United States have a reliable partner in Riyadh? This concern is my heightened by recent the recent attention, and Saudi Arabia, a former senior Saudi officials with whom the United States had forged a close counterintelligence and counterterrorism rather Partnership individuals who understood the importance of professionalizing and reforming the Saudi intelligence services. That question came to a horrific head last year with the brutal murder of U.

No, he says that he didn't do it, He says very strongly he didn't unlike the president, this committee is not in the practice of taking self interested in plausible denial. What's the face value and I'm confident neither Democrats nor Republicans in Congress are going to stop insisting on accounting and accountability for his murder were stopped demanding that the director of national intelligence make public. Its assessment of Saudi officials. Culpability for the killing justice as well as the law require no less. Congress also will not stop scrutinizing whether the U.

"Two friends. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of is you and Crown Prince Mohammed bin of United Arab Emirates, where they agreed to finalize a historical peace agreement. Everybody said this would be you know Mohammed is one of the great leaders of the Middle East. After 49 years, Israel in the United Arab Emirates will fully normalized diplomatic relations. They will exchange embassies and ambassadors and begin cooperation. Across the board and on a broad range of areas, including curs of education, healthcare, trade and security. Joining us right now is Katie MacFarland, former Trump, deputy national security advisor and author of Revolution Trump Washington and we, the people, Katie, It really is a really big deal, isn't it? It is impossible really overestimate how big a deal. This is mean In my book. I wrote just sort of a preview of it, and I wrote it to two or three years ago, saying that Jared Kushner In the Middle East. He took a completely different approach than the historic one that's always been taken that he was thinking outside the box was taking the approach of a businessman, and so instead of, you know, pushing the Arabs and the Palestinians together. And having nothing Come of it. He went around it and about going to the United Arab Emirates. That was the place to start. Now, the other two things that made this possible when President Trump walked away from a nuclear deal. Around. Put him distract number two. The energy We didn't need to be fighting of their sites. And as president, Trump said, a couple of times you need to be there. And so it was a I really put it all on. Jared Kushner shall never get the credit he deserves, but he has been working tirelessly. Quietly behind the scenes to bring these two together and understanding that the economic boom that's about to happen between those two countries. Nobody realizes that Israelis can't sell stuff to the Arab world and vice versa because of their prejudices in their laws. But now all of a sudden, Israel has a window on economic window, a trade window into the entire Arab world, and vice versa. So you a taking the lead and they're the money guys in the middle of the year of the world, and then they will be followed by other countries in short order. And not only does this put Iran into a really, you know, lonely position and an economic distress position, but it also puts the Palestinians into position of you guys want peace. You know, we're not going to keep paying for you to to destroy a lot of the options in the Middle East, So I think it just changes everything. It changes US Security Malaysian. It changes Arab Israeli security millage changes the diplomacy and I never thought Larry. I would say this President Trump underestimated me under soul that we think this is 40 years. Something 1000 years. This is a really big deal, Katie. We got most of that. But you did break up. Lose your signal. Little bits. If you could just, you know, firm that up a bit, if possible, And I just want to repeat what I think I heard a couple of the important things here. First of all. Huge credit in moving this along to Donald Trump and Jared Kushner for pulling out of the Iran deal, delve into that a little bit more. But by pulling out of the Iran deal and isolating Iran. They made it very, very certain in terms of our influence in the Middle East, that you're either on the side of us and peace or you're on the side of Iran and the terrorists, and there is no middle ground there right that. That's why that was so important. Well, it was important for a couple of reasons, one because President Obama had turned around American foreign policy to support Iran. He had abandoned our Sunni Arab allies, and he didn't push for Iran. So what it did was really kind of push the Arabs into the arms of Israel to a certain And they don't have the money to pay for terrorists, and they certainly don't have a lot of other Muslims in the Middle East wanting to support that. And also Kate Human. For Owen. It's not like Joe Biden can step up and say, Oh, you know, we laid the groundwork for this right with when you guys took over in the White House. There was It's not like there was already something going down this path. This is completely organic to the Trump presidency. Oh, completely because you needed to have energy independence to do it. He needed to have the Arab world of oil. Richer countries say Okay, G. You know, we're not gonna be able to put People start thinking of another way to survive. So maybe we should look at it Thrill and the really the personal diplomacy May the President Trump's first foreign trip. You never was in was to Saudi Arabia. You die here. You know, he went there them. He put his flag down to say we're going to try to do something and we're going to try to do something different, and we're going to do it away from the cameras away from the spotlight and God bless them. They pulled it on one last thing on this Katie MacFarland that we were told that when the president Stayed true to his promise to move the United States Embassy to Jerusalem that that would halt any kind of progress with regard to Middle East peace. In fact, it would isolate Israel. It would isolate the United States of America and it would prohibit any kind of day like we see today with you, eh, actually acknowledging Israel's right to exist. Everyone who warned against moving the embassy look like complete and total fools today, don't they? Yeah, with bozos. I mean, look out by Bobby the embassy Attention gristle in President Trump's showed he can take bold moves. He'll take a calculated risk, And he also demonstrated to Israel. Look, I got your back, no matter you know if you come to a deal with down the road If you come to a deal with the Arabs don't worry. I'll catch her back. So I mean, the whole thing was brilliantly choreographed. Between energy independence between wanting to get out of the Middle East between the working with the Sunni Arabs, Teo de radicalized theory in the whole thing working with Israel to guarantee the sturdy mean it's just brilliantly done so bravo to them, and nobody saw it coming. One final thing on this Katie MacFarland appreciate you joining us. Do you believe that? This is not the end of this story? I've heard people speculated today. Bahrain will be close behind here and there will be some other countries in this region following suit. You bet. I mean, this is a united Arab amorous. It is economic. You know, they're they're the bankers of the region. And so bye, then making this move. Others will follow suit. Not only just give others of the political cover, but it gives him a financial instead of nobody that you know, this is like a gold rush. Nobody wants to be left out. What a great day because we're looking at a point right now. Katie McCone, where the outliers in the Middle East will be not not those few nations who acknowledge Israel and have diplomatic relations. The outliers will See those stubborn, bigoted anti Semitic nations that refused to acknowledge Israel. That's I mean beyond the game changer. This is this is so historic. It's really again. It's hard to underestimate how extraordinary this is, and it's hard to even force the home Anyways, this is going to improve everybody's security, peace, prosperity. Throughout the region, and it puts the United States in a great position. We broke the deal joyful, absolutely joyful. Katie make fun. Always going to talk with you. Thanks for joining us today. Thanks, Larry. Again. Her book is Author Revolution. Trump Washington And we, the people Former Trump Deputy National Security Visor Katie MacFarland. Big Big Day. Hope you help you absorbed all of that. It's 5 15 Traffic and weather first on the five. Rodriguez is in the carpet cleaning traffic.

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, backed by the king, moves for absolute power
"It is easy to forget that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz. Al Sowed is not actually technically ruler of Saudi Arabia. That title belongs formerly to his elderly Father King Salman however since his appointment as crown prince in two thousand seventeen. It has been widely understood that. Nbs often known is the heir designate. Power behind the throne and at the age of thirty four very much the future of Saudi Arabia in this unofficial role mb has furnished considerable cause for concern he has overseen a terrible onslaught against Yemen and a blockade of Qatar. Neither of which appear to have accomplished much. He has interred dozens of his fellow royalty. For a time in a Ritz hotel and more or less kidnapped the prime minister of Lebanon perhaps most infamously. Nbs is widely supposed responsible for the murder of Washington. Post columnist. Jamal Khashoggi even by those standards. This week's palace intrigue in Riyadh is remarkable. Several members of the court appear to have been arrested at MBA's instruction including one of his uncles and one of his cousins dozens more army officers and civil servants are also reported to have been rounded up east this NBA swatting a coup. D'etat conducting one of his own. If he does manage to reach the throne when King Solomon's time comes. What does he want to do with it and is in BS? Perhaps not quite the Mariah Carey loving modernizer. He would have us believe. This is the foreign desk when you bring in Mariah Carey and all these singers and pay them views amount of money but you do not have an any universities anyplace to learn music. There is no department in any Saudi university to learn. Play ride to a drama making this these other forms that you should look for. And whether this massive youth constituency what she has to some extent manage to bring behind him is still behind him in five years time because young people need to get jobs. They need to be able to get married. They can't subsistence promises forever. So I think Basch is going to be the key determinant his credibility rather than some of the things that I looked with more interested in the book. We must remember that. Donald Trump has given unequivocal support. D'amato Vince on who is heavily implicated in the killing of the journalist. Jamal Hasha he. Trump has had his back on that one and I think as as long as trump remains in power that this relationship will continue quite strongly. You're listening to the foreign desk. I'm Andrew Miller on today show. I'm joined by Ali Al Ahmed and Laura James Ali. Ahmed is a Saudi Scala. The Institute for Gulf Affairs joins us from Washington DC. Laura James is senior Middle East analyst at the Global Advisory Firm Oxford Analytica Ali. Al Start with you and I'll start with well it's not always an easy question to answer with Saudi Arabia's concerned which is the the pretty basic one of as far as we know what has been going on this week Mohammed bin Salman the heir apparent of King. Solomon who has a lot of political ambitions obviously has members of the ruling family who are his rivals and they do not want to see him become king if they would like to see him ousted some just by talking and some by plotting so what has happened is Hamad discernment is extremely insecure about that and he took measures to stop any attempt to remove him. We have two groups here those who are talking and then the sort of speaking ill of Like his uncle Ahmad but Abdelaziz who who thinks that he has better in terms of becoming king and you have his cousin especially the younger ones who rallied around the his main rival. Hamad bin naive to try to dislodge him for power by by force even and that is why we have seen these steps of arrest and monitoring hundreds of members on family who are eyeing the throne Laura to bring you in his they one fundamental thing looking behind this extraordinary shakespeare in intrigue. Is it a reasonable assumption that MBBS is trying to nail down his future in anticipation that King Mohammed who is eighty four years old and not in good health? Con- last forever. I think he's done really since he became Crown Princeton before has been based on that assumption. It's been about shoring up his position within the family and I think if when his father succeeded nobody would have predicted that he could have done it. This effectively. He is essentially unchallenged. Do we understand. If the differences between the rival factions are actually political or is this basically a more atavistic. Instinctual family feud. I'm not sure that you can draw the distinction very clearly in Saudi Arabia between family in politics the two very much Banda with each other. I would say one difference between Mohammed bin Salman. His rivals is that he thinks that the anyway food. Saudi Arabia is essentially for one person to be in clear charging for that person to him whereas some of the people who oppose him wants to get back to a more consensual style family managed rule and Schering of resources and consensus in enslave change whereas if a political as well family reasons bin Salman says no that model work for Saudi Arabia. Dunga all these possible to be clear on rich factions of the house of sowed supporting. Nbs this point. Does he actually have the numbers? I think? So the most important in Saudi government and the ruling. Saudi Arabia is not even the ruling family anymore. It was about power previously. The model like Laura speaking about the there were centers of power at King. Abdullah had the national guard was his own militia guns so he can force his His agenda and his position and so on the delayed crown prince was also minister of defense so he had the army under his control so he can push his agenda and most importantly then the ministry of the interior with late conference knife had the interior ministry. Which has the largest number of security personnel and across the country and so he can use that to push himself to the throne in all of these people reach the throne. Some some did some died before they they got to to become king now all of these powers the Army National Guard and the Interior Ministry has been gutted and removed. Everything that's powerful about. It has been moved to something called the State Security Agency and the control of bin Salman so our bin Salman controls all the military and security apparatus in the country. So who is his real challenge? No one they can speak. They can talk about. They cannot do very much. There are members of the family who want to see him out. This is not strange to the Saudi ruling family King Faysal was shot and killed by his own nephew. King Salad was overthrown by his brothers. And also there was an assassination attempt on his life after he was deposed and expelled. This is nothing new in the history of the family so I expect to see some harsh measures against some of those younger princess like Nawaf bin Ni- F- Who was arrested and Mohammed bin? Naif who is basically the boss the boss of this of this of these people because he has the best chance in rivaling Ahmed bin Salman let us remember. It was the Obama Administration C. i. a. A and Obama who brought Hamad Knife as the future king and gave him a lot of accolades And supported him and tell trump came and push 'em B. S. INSTEAD AND MR. I'm mad but was pushed out and he still. Mr Benign has a lot of support in Washington in day democratic side. So that was the fear that MBBS had Laura how much might MB S.'s? Stature in court or credibility in the court of being damaged by his own somewhat petulant impulsive behavior over the years whether that's launching this war in Yemen his involvement? In the murder of Jamal Khashoggi would there be a concern in the rest of the court that he might be quite the loose cannon concerns among some parts of the ruling family and very strong concerns internationally. I think there are two distinct issues. One is about foreign policy mistakes. And as you've said in terms of Yemen in terms of Qatar in terms of the confrontation with Iran and particularly in Lebanon. It seemed that. His foreign policy initiatives haven't worked very well. I think within the country that's less important like the Ritz Carlton and this latest. Crackdown are actually less important than the nuts and bolts of vision twenty thirty which is his transformation plan so Mohammed bin Salman has stepped forward and said we know we need to change. The oil is going to run out. We've got to move into a new era. Diversify the economy. Be ready for this. Get Jokes Young People Change Society? I need a huge amounts woods that intensive transforming the way in which Saudi Arabia

S. doesn't believe this it's placed both those men on on sanctions for involvement in the killing well then you have the question of the crown prince I mean Saudi Arabia maintains that he had nothing to do with this I mean have we learned more about this killing in in the time since so many questions we still don't know what exactly happened but what seems clear is that the the Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin someone who initially said that he knew nothing about it probably did know what we know about this very grisly killing is mostly from the Turkish government he was killed in the consulate last October after he went there to get papers for his marriage and during that time he was confronted by Saudi agents who had flown in on a private plane one of them the head of the autopsy department carrying a bone saw the Turks released what they say are recordings of part of the process in which she was killed the body disappeared his remains still haven't been found can you just step back for a minute I mean you mentioned the US sanctions on some of these people believed to be involved here how much has the US Saudi relationship been impacted by a bucket so Jeez death in an investigation since then well shop was a columnist who wrote for publications including The Washington Post he was a U.

S. arms deals arm sold to Saudi Arabia and that doesn't really wash with a lot of other officials and in fact the Senate has asked for the head of the US intelligence to come and brief them on what they know because the CIA has concluded according to a lot of reports of that in fact the Saudi crown prince ones involved in ordering the killing as Jane arrive in Amman Jordan thanks Jane thank you for almost seventy years US troops have been barred from bringing medical malpractice claims against the government but now a soldier who has cancer is going to get his day in court that's because he and his lawyer took his case to Congress J. price of member station W.

But there are a bunch of people in Capitol Hill who say the radio to do that if they have to and there is a law on their side for that, by the way. Yeah. Was this guy in American citizen? No, no, no. It's important to point out on he'd only left to Saudi Arabia about a year or so ago from what we understand that then he settled in Virginia, and he's written some critical pieces in the Washington Post. He was a journalist who had fallen afoul. Let's say of the Royal family the road, some critical pieces in the Washington Post of crown crown prince Mohammed and others. About their, you know, crackdown in Yemen. The war in Yemen that was going on and other things, and there is speculation that the crown prince and the government wanted him. Kidnapped or taken back to Saudi Arabia in some form to be punished. However, the image or whatever the idea is coming out that he went to the consulate in Houston bowl. And the Turkish government is saying he was killed there. What I don't understand. That's what they're saying. If you're a journalist, and you're a Saudi Arabian citizen, and you're living in some other country. And you're writing things that are critical of that government because they don't respect human rights, and they don't respect, you know, you're not ready to move about. Or do whatever you're not allowed to say anything bad about them. I'll tell you. Why would you go into one of their offices in a foreign country where you know, protect you love makes you do stupid stuff. John. I said this guy wanted to marry her so severely like, but he had already gone there once and things went fine. And they said we need you to come back in. They got him in because he's in love, and and he probably thought he was fine. The first time he'll be fine the second, Bob. So the bottom line is if the Turkish. Good. I think the the issue may be that he thought in Turkey at least he was saying he would be safe from kind of persecution. He might face going back directly to sell any Arabia. Yeah. However, this also hits at the very strange relations are going on right now between Turkey until the Arabia. Let alone what President Trump, of course, his talked about in terms of military sales Saudi Arabia. He doesn't want to eliminate that. And the fact that the president is also trying to get Saudi Arabia to produce more oil for the time being there's a big pack. Yeah, they're the big counterbalance to Iran too. I mean, that's also a huge factor in their decision oil. If it's taken off the market is the contributing to what we've seen as far as gasoline prices going up right now. Right. Bob Costantini, KABC news. Correspondent thanks so much for the report. We appreciate it. Thank you. Bob. John take care what a story and the bottom line is Turkish government officials say we think he's dead. Saudi Arabia said we have nothing to do with it. What will happen? Are we ever going to find see him again or they were going? There must be footage from inside the consulate mean come on. There's gotta be something. What a crazy story. It's four forty six on the drive home. Gillians tweet of the day up deck seven ninety KABC..
