"saudi consulate" Discussed on WRIR.org 97.3FM

"And joining us now is Greg goes, his chair chaired professor of international facet, Texas AM university, and the author of three books international relations of the Persian Gulf oil monarchies, domestic insecurity challenges in the Arab Gulf countries and Saudi relations, domestic structures and foreign influence and previously. He was a fellow for Arab studies at the council on foreign relations. Welcome to background briefing. Gregory goals? Thank you. And what do you make the return of prince Ahmed bin Abdul Aziz the youngest brother of the current king Salman, he is the last I guess of this sedaris seven named after the favorite wife of King Abdel Aziz, and it seems as a couple of things happening here, we know about of course, that paralysis caused by the scandal in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. The murderer kashogi and the extent to which one is sort of. I don't know what he's angling for. But he's drawing that out and a couple of important things have happened. One is the return of this prince who didn't want to go back. He was afraid to go back apparently. But also the announcement today by secretary of defense, Madison secretary of state bump that they urging the Saudis to stop bombing in Yemen. Clearly, these seem related at least in my mind. So let's begin. There is something going on. Do you think Gregory something's up? There's no question about it. The affairs of the Saudi ruling family are. So that the best we can do is speculate. But I think that the one concrete fact, we have is that a senior prints. Who was passed over not not so much by King Solomon in in Hamadan on the crown prince, but he lost his position earlier under king up dolla. She's returning. He's one of the few members of the king's generation with significant political experience who's left alive. And so he has become something of a focus for people who are looking for an alternative to the crown prince now, I don't think that he has the policy chops. To actually be a serious alternative to the crown prince, but he could become right? A factor in in family politics in Riyadh in an effort to. To kind of clip the wings of the crown prince, maybe bring some more senior princes who have been sidelined by the king of the crown prince into the decision making process. That's a possibility. The other thing that one hears bandied about and rumored is that he's being called back as part of an effort to show solidarity. I put less stock in that he wouldn't have to come back to do that. And he's not he's not so central to the politics of the family that that he would be necessary for a show of solidarity. I think but it it is opaque. So we're going to have to see what develops. I mean. There's some reports that he's come back under kind of implicit or explicit protection from Britain and the United States guarantees that is safety will be protected and that would indicate if that's true. When again, that's just rumor. If that's true. That would indicate a an international effort to try to affect the deliberations within the ruling family right now. So the only thing we know is that something is up. I think the Yemen thing was in one sense long overdue, but I do think that this is a response on the US side to what is a mounting sense in congress that there has to be some reassessment of maybe not the the the entire range of the US Saudi relationship, but at a minimum of of some elements of it that are associated with mommy been some on. And and the Yemen war is what even before the murder of Jamal Shoji had mobilized a fair amount of opposition in the US congress. Well, the fact that if in data's true that UK and US have asked for guarantees or or want to guarantee the safety of appearance on the younger brother of King Solomon said that he could return. From Exxon in London where apparently he's he was afraid of PS. The very fact that such guarantees unnecessary is hard to reconcile with the idea that this is how ally and and this is the person took him that MBBS was hailed as the great reformer. I mean, the scales are off on day after the kashogi murder, and in general, how can anybody see 'em Bs at the very least being reckless if not quite murderous. Well, I mean, I think you'd have to say his murderous. I think that. Anyone who believes that? My mom was a political reformer was naive. He gave absolutely no indication of that. And and was pretty straightforward about the fact that there wasn't going to be political reform in Saudi Arabia. I think a lot of people both in the west and frankly in Saudi Arabia were quite supportive of the social reforms on gender issues on public entertainments on rolling back. Some of the power of the religious establishment to define what's acceptable public behavior in Saudi Arabia. There was quite a bit of support for that. And in many ways, I think that even with the killing of Jamal Shoji, the long term in the long term what people will remember. Mohammed bin Salman, four is it's going to be the Shoji murder. But will also be that he was the one who finally cut the Gordian knot of of Saudi politics and gave women the right to drive the recklessness issue. I think is is absolutely clear both in domestic politics and foreign policy on the domestic politics side. He was the crown prince is the one who who arrested and in interred almost you know, over three hundred members of the elite of the business and political elite of the kingdom in the Ritz Carlton hotel back in November. Partially to shake him down for money and partially as an assertion of political political power. But I think it's on the foreign policy side that the recklessness is even more apparent whether it was the big facto kidnapping of the of the of the Lebanese Prime Minister and forcing him to resign in a address from Riyadh that didn't lead to any political change in Lebanon. The overreaction to the to the criticism from Canada this summer of Saudi human rights. Issues that led to affect practically a break of relations with Canada, the the the boycott of color, which has an achieved any of its goals. And and of course, the Yemen war would be indications that. That the crown prince isn't properly calculating the second and third order consequences of his foreign policy actions. And then the murder of Jamal Shoji in Turkey. In the Saudi consulate and it's done bowl is just another indication of that. And again, I'm speaking with Gregory goals is chair and professor international affairs at Texas A and M university, and the author of three books international relations of the Persian Gulf oil monarchies domestic and security challenges in the Arab Gulf states and Saudi Yemeni relations, domestic structures and foreign influence. Previously was a fellow for Arab and Islamic studies at the council on foreign relations. So you've given us an absolute list of you know, what would be dealbreakers in terms of leadership. And yet he's in power still or he's about to become the king. At least. That's the assumption that NBS will ascend to the throne because his father apparently has some form of dementia. So what offsets that I mean, the fact that he's popular again, I'm sure it's pretty opaque kind of measure these things in Saudi Arabia since this absolute, it's an absolute monarchy, and there's no freedom to do. Anything? But that's what you hear anecdotally that the young people like him. So how do you reconcile us to an outrageous foreign policy record, which would indicate to everybody in the neighborhood that you know, you're going to be in for a rocky road with this guy in charge for the next several decades that should be enough to get people's attention. But on the other hand, it seems that he has not just the brute power of having jailed. Everybody take another all the military's and the intelligence services and jailed all of his rivals shook them down for money, etc. So what's your explanation? Greg goal is for that disconnect between reckless foreign policy and domestic popularity. I think that the foreign policy consequences haven't hit home for the average person in Saudi Arabia. The Saudis are conducting an air war in Yemen. They're having committed a whole lot of troops in while. They've had some casualties. It's not that many. So the the Yemen war doesn't really doesn't hit home for the average Saudi and these other foreign policy issues as important as they are again, they they don't affect people's daily lives. And so I think that that there's a an the news management, of course in Saudi Arabia. All of this stuff is presented in the most favorable light the war as as a necessary fight against Iran expansionism, the investigation of the show G murder as some kind of bias thing against Saudi Arabia. So I mean, there's information management as well. As the fact that the foreign policy miscues, and and missteps. Haven't really. Haven't really affected the daily life of Saudis, but I think it it. It has raised the number of questions about the crown prince's judgment, not only in the United States. But also, you know, other capitals around the world at among elites in Saudi Arabia. Shoji? Murder is the occasion for those doubts to kind of come to the surface. And we're seeing I think pressure both internal and external four some curbing of the crown prince's unilateral powers for decades Saudi Saudi policy hypotheses was made by consensus among senior Francis. And what the king Saul monitor? The crown prince have done is basically cut out that system, and and and solidified power in the hands of these two people the king on on more general issues and big ticket items and Mohammed bin Simone on day to day. And I think this is speculation on my part. But my guess is that there is pressure both from within the family and from external players to see some. Senior people in the ruling family reinstalled in positions of authority to put some guardrails around the crown prince. I think it it. It's I think it would be impossible. To to get the crown prince removed from his office. I think a given the fact that he does control the military and indirectly the national guard and the intelligence services, I think it would it would be extremely risky for anyone in Saudi Arabia to try to make that push. But the idea that you might have senior members of the family take important positions, like foreign minister and act as the restraints on on the crown prince is something that might that. We might see happen. Well, what about pressure from President Trump? We know that recently he made the most extraordinary statements about Saudi Arabia where he said the killing of Shoji was a bad concept. You almost implied that he would have done a better. He said, you know, it was terrible cover up in say was a terrible thing say it was a terrible cover up. He's criticizing there. Methodology as opposed to the human rights abuse.

"And it will essentially before the midterm elections and it will essentially leave the Saudi relationship with the crown prince Mohammad bin Salman intact, and the news cycle will move on and nothing more fundamentally have changed is one of the key questions. His few capitals you countries around the world, believe the Saudi line that he got into a fight and blah, blah, blah. But the issue isn't whether they believe it or not it the issue as other, they pretend to do so they accept it or not. Now, of course, we're in a really interesting period today ahead of tomorrow because Erdogan has promised that he will reveal the naked truth or we don't know what he's going to say, but it could completely blow the Saudi story out of the water. It's an interesting story insofar as story since changed since. Patrick winter wrote that article. The Saudi foreign minister has now said that Jamal has showed she has was murdered inside the Saudi consulate, and it was the act of rogue operatives and this idea of rogue opposite something that that Donald Trump mentioned as well. It seems to be a narrative in which both Saudi in America out are complicit. Now when you have the Saudis and the Americans saying, one thing is extremely hard for anyone else in the world trying to next any change, isn't it? Yeah. So they're trying to keep this distance between Mohammed bin Salman on what happened. There is no one who believes that. What happened really inside that conflict could not have been ordered at a high level. The actual latest twist is actually people saying coming out and saying what it has to have been an accident because no one will could have planned such an obscene plan. So you kind of tying yourself in knots, whichever way you look at it. I'm really looking forward to what to say. Tomorrow. Very interesting story given the fact that all the evidence of whatever may have happened in the in the consulate seems to be coming directly from the tugs and it's coming from what they are assuming is a bug consulate. That's going to cause all manner of interesting, diplomatic repercussions. If the brutal murder of journalist doesn't seem to do the trick, right? Let's move to the financial times. Page six. What's happening there? So voters I- Bolsonaro the tropical Trump as an agent of change.

The key point is if Brazil absolutely needs to change, everyone knows that everyone agrees with that. He could nominally and politically and unfortunately for many in the country who want to reject this right wing agenda. He is the change candidate, and that's what looks like is set to happen in just a matter of days time. In this in financial times is a financial need to change as much as a political need. Although the two obviously are very clearly in interconnected, but it says Brazil collected around twenty percents of GDP taxes. It now collects thirty four percent of its economic output in taxes. So in taxes people. Well, as this this article points out about the same that the average European country does. However, what you don't get in return is any section of selection of public services.

"Is on number women Palm Beach Florida today. I want to go to this issue of this this reporter this guy with the Washington Post, you you're not an American citizen lived for a long time in Saudi Arabia, and it looks like he walked into the Saudi county council in council it in in estan bull. And it looks like he was murdered. Now, Mike Pompeo is asking the president to give the Saudis couple of days. They say they're going to get to the bottom of it. But I don't really have any doubt that this guy was murdered and murdered by the Saudis, and I doubt it happened without the crown prince and other top people in Saudi Arabia, knowing if that's the case. You know, I know Democrats want to pressure Donald Trump into doing whatever they wanna do and making this the biggest litmus test, but let me remind people that Hillary Clinton and the Clinton foundation took millions from the Saudis. She never brought up their horrific treatment of women killing gays and lesbians. She never brought up one time the persecution of Christians and Jews in Saudi Arabia and the same would go for look at how they treated Benghazi. But with that said, we already know that double standard exists. What are you? What do you think? Think first of all that the president is right? Be cautious do indicate clearly that we don't necessarily know all the things that are going on. I think it would be very foolish for us to. Great relationship with Saudi Arabia, which is the key to containing around. But I think we have to get to the bottom of it. Let me also point out to folks, I'm just now working on a novel for next year called collusion in which the Russians decide they wanna poison the US Senate. If I were writing a novel about a Saudi journalist being killed and. The circumstances are just strange. They're gonna kill him in the Saudi consulate. Knowing that the Turkish intelligence services, monitor them all the time. They're gonna do it with a team of fifteen people. It's almost like they did do it. And I'm not saying they didn't. I mean, clearly something terrible happen and clearly. This sloppy and stupid. And you know, I it's unbelievable the position they put any of their allies. And you're right. We have this unprecedent alliance against Iranian hegemony with the Saudis Israelis Emirates Jordanians and Egyptians, and you know, now that creates massive complications. Well, but if you look at it, you know, we've said pretty clearly we're not going to tolerate the Russians poisoning people in Great Britain into the very specific sanctions. I could imagine a circumstance where if we do. In fact, decide that the evidence is overwhelming, and there's the Saudis have at least promise secretary of state compel that they're going to give him the full report. Now, again, they may well be lying, but. Yep. In the end, we discovered that there are people in Saudi Arabia involve high suspect there will be sanctions. But that's different says one thing they have sanctions. It's another thing, you know, to go wild and break up the alliance and the relationship and the Israelis have been very clear that they regard Saudi Arabia is searching important defense against Iran, urged us to be very careful in this process. We've got to go. But this is speaker it does complicate things. But people do remember that are arch enemy. Aligned with us Russia, the former Soviet Union to beat Nazism. That's right. And I think sometimes as I said, you know, we have taken steps against Russia in concert with the British over killing trying to poison several people, but we didn't we didn't go preserve. I think we may have to take significant steps here and sanctions some people and blocks some people from coming to the US. And I think frankly, the crown prince had better clean this up or he will not be allowed back in the US long-time, Mr Speaker. Thank you for being with us. We gotta take a break. Right.

"He be fired in the court of appeals pulled the trigger in Albany yesterday. The state's highest court agreeing with the recommendation officially firing him President Trump says he believes the Saudi monarchy's denials that it had anything to do with the disappearance of Washington Post journalist who was last seen walking into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago. More from correspondent Jonathan Karl. President Trump is warned of severe punishment for Saudi Arabia if it murdered Jamal kashogi. But today, he added this, and it depends whether or not the king or the crown prince knew about it, in my opinion. Number one. What happened, but whether or not they knew about it. If they knew about it that will be bad later. He tweeted, quote, just spoke with the crown prince of Saudi Arabia who totally denied any knowledge of what took place in their Turkish consulate Rupert Colville spokesman for the U N High Commissioner for high for human rights. He says a quick and thorough investigation is needed that that may be difficult because of the time that has passed two weeks is a very long time for the probable scene of a crime not to subject to a full forensic investigation.

"It may look good, you know, in copy in the press and so on. But in in actual fact, I mean, that's not what's going to affect change in the in in places like Saudi Arabia or other Middle Eastern countries where you have an authoritarian system. The US has many other tools at its disposal, and it should think of those rather than you know, symbolic gestures. Well, speaking of those tools, I'm seeing here now that US Senator Lindsey, Graham is saying that he believes Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman had US based journalist, Jamal Khashoggi murdered in the Saudi consulate, and that that soman has quote tainted his country. As a result. This is from the Associated Press Lindsey. Graham is saying that the crown prince has got to go and that he will not return to Saudi Arabia. While the prince is in power, Graham. Has also saying that he's been the biggest defender of the kingdom. But now he plans to quote sanction the hell out of Saudi Arabia that's from the Associated Press Steven, cook. What do you think. We'll Senator Graham is has been a interesting commentator on the Middle East over many years because he has been forthright in speaking out on human rights and democracy and democracy promotion, especially in places like Egypt, though he's been relatively more quiet when it comes to Saudi Arabia. Again, the kind of very difficult issue in position that American policymakers are in when it comes to the importance of Saudi Arabia and having a foreign policy that is more consistent with American values. It's clear that the apparent killing of Jamal shocked. She has moved him to be more critical and to include Saudi Arabia more forthrightly in his demonstrations of authoritarianism and human rights violations in in the region. The the real question is though whether the kind of things that Senator Graham is talking about a really going to have an impact. On the behavior of Saudi Arabia. Certainly, congress has a variety of tools. As you heard, Jeff flake talking about suspending arm sales to Saudi Arabia. There's the global Magnitsky act, which would make certain Saudis if they're sanctioned with it, unable to conduct business in the international financial system. But as we've seen from other cases of from Russia, in particular, this has not altered the behavior of of other countries. Well, we have a minute to go before the break and Bernard Haykal. I want to get your thought on this because as Stephen cook was saying, would Saudi Arabia's behavior change specifically the behavior from the crown prince or or or the king for as long as the president of the United States has shown that he does not necessarily have a bad word to say for authority and leaders in other countries, Russia, North Korea, Turkey. Well, look, I mean, the Saudis have in the past extradited or kidnapped if you like dissidents and brought them back to Saudi Arabia where they put them in prison, they, they're not in the habit of killing dissidents overseas. They've never done it as far as I know. And so this is completely out of character. And I think that certainly this will never happen again and and they should account for for it and they should. They should punish whoever's responsible for. But I don't think that the the congress has that kind of influence on in an ability to change Saudi behavior. Certainly not domestic politics and changing who's the leader in the kingdom? Well, we're speaking with Bernard Haykal. He's professor of near eastern studies at Princeton.

Well, I expressed that I did not feel the kashogi who's well known columnist for the Washington Post disappeared because of anything he said about the United States or some politician. I felt as though that he was about to go public about deep state players on the world stage. And this is why he disappeared. This is why he's believed to be murdered Jamal. Kashogi had actually had an appointment at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. To collection documents he needed so that he can marry his Turkish fiance. And so we went into the consulate you want to get a certificate showing that he was divorced from his first wife he entered the consulate on October second at one fourteen pm. He asked his fiancee, wait for me. I'll be back. She waited for him until two AM. So you went into the consulate one fourteen pm, she waited for him until two AM. He never came back. Now number of news outlets citing Turkish sources reporting that Jamal kashogi who was the former editor for Saudi newspaper. He was a regime critic in Washington Post contributor was murdered and dismembered. Story made headlines around the world murder possible dismemberment in a diplomatic facility. Well, bad bad gets a lot of headlines. Have they do that to you in a diplomatic facility? President Donald Trump. Who has obviously had very close ties with crown prince Mohammad bin Salman Salman has described the situation is very sad. He says very sad situation. Then Trump says it's a very bad situation. We cannot let this happen to reporters to anybody. However inside knowledge. Inside knowledge indicates that kashogi was about to blow the lid off of deep state players and their interaction with Saudi Arabia. And this bombshell would have collapsed Saudi influence around the world. However, if the Turks are, correct. Thank you Shoghi was murdered by the Saudis. President Trump said there would be major consequences and one can only speculate that he could very well decide to stop backing the Saudis entirely. There's also report the kashogi may have gleaned highly sensitive inside information on what actually happened on September. Eleventh two thousand one of the attacks on New York and the Pentagon. Even more intriguing are US media reports. Now emerging that American intelligence had spied on and we're aware of Saudi officials making plans to capture kashogi prior to his appearance disappearance the Saudi columnist on bul last week. So if the Americans do the journalists life was in danger. Why didn't they tip him off to the actually to avoid is debt ever wonder about that? See the Saudi royals new. The kashogi was criticizing the so-called reforms the crown prince Mohammad bin Salman butt. Of more concern was that kashogi knew about darker dirtier matters, not just the Saudis, but he knew about deep state actors on a worldwide level. Kashogi went from interviewing Osama bin Laden in one thousand nine hundred eighty s becoming one of the most prominent journalists in his country. And then he went to self-imposed exile writing for the Washington Post. But he probably didn't know a lot about what happened on nine eleven and I'll tell you why coming up.

"Arabia of murdering the journalist in an alleged attack. That was planned. Joining us now is Bobby gauche by we go. She's editor of Bloomberg opinion based in London, Bobby. Thank you so much for being with us. I can you explain what we know at this point about this situation. And why it's so important. Well, we know that Jamal Khashoggi about a week ago went into the Saudi consulate in his to collect some papers. And that was the last anybody saw or heard from him. We know that the Turkish authorities have been leaking tutor media, both local international media that they believe that they have evidence that Jamal Sochi was tortured, and then murdered. And then that his body was removed from the. They also have cracked the movement. A private aircraft with fifteen passengers arrived at very day. They believed that these passengers included people who were responsible for the culture. But this is the extent of the facts that we know this is important because it is it comes while Saudi Arabia is trying to change its image in the world. The crown prince the relatively new crown prince. On his better known as m b s he has been trying to change the way the country. He's been trying to reform economy trying to change many of the social regulation of the country and playing to improve image in the works with this comes at a time. This is this could have been worse time this incident, if it is cruel that Jamal was killed in the Saudi consulate by Saudi officials on the orders senior Saudi figures in government, then this is not new and improved Saudi Arabia. This is very much an old one in fact in some ways because worse than the Saudi Arabia. Bobby ghosh? This also has implications for the relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia. Correct. Yes. It does because Jamal was a resident of the United States Washington. He was a columnist of Washington Post well known in Washington political and diplomatic circles. Well, liked in those circles, this is important because Saudi Arabia is very important to the Trump administration. President Trump his first international trip was to Saudi Arabia, his son-in-law, Jared Kushner has a close personal relationship with the crown prince purple station has made a big deal of the fact that they're very close to Saudi Arabia. So anything that reflects poorly Saudi Arabia, especially since it involves a American resident is going to going to be a splash by calling the Trump administration. Bobby is really interesting in light of the news that we have this morning with Turkey freeing that detained pastor that President Trump and his administration have argued for and is interesting to contrast, the rhetoric out of the Trump administration around that versus the rhetoric around this particular incident, and that basically President Trump seems to be taking a pretty hands off approach to they're saying, well, you know, who knows why? Argument is that tomorrow. Okay is not an American citizen. Whereas the pastor, of course, is an American citizen. Unfortunately that argument won't wash because it does have a responsibility for somebody who is legally resident in Washington, it has a responsibility because Saudi Arabia is a major ally has a responsibility as a as a beacon for for free speech, and free expression. Jamarcus hoagie was. Actually exercising. His free speech was not. I I think we should point out. He was not quite into Ponant off the Saudi regime. He was very much a part of the Saudi elite could assume had been quite mild. He supported the conference on the constant was appointed. He disagreed with the policies at the conference then implemented and wrote about it. That's the extent this is not some left wing radical who is hiding out in the United States and taking potshots receive. Is it possible that the United States will conduct an investigation? And if it does and find something on toward that there will be sanctions. Well, number of senior senators in the US have pressed the president to do exactly that rand Paul. The Senator from Kentucky is threatening to call a vote in the Senate to block all American arms sales to Saudi Arabia. These run into tens hundreds of billions of dollars, very senior American political figures in the seriously. Ministration Mike cry a lot of it. But if the if the senators keep pressing and keep reminding on then I think it'd be hard for the White House. Bobby just real quick here. There are a number of company leaders who've already that they're not going to attend the so called DeVos in the desert event that is upcoming because of this incident have significantly will that gained the attention of Saudi Arabia in leadership. Very very important. In fact, arguably even more than than NGOs or human rights organizations complaining about what happened to them all this is going to make a much greater impact because of the park off to conferences reform agenda is to bring more foreign and private investment into the country. Major business leaders are backing out and don't want to be associated with this event, which is a sort of crown jewel of the program. That's a big deal. Wanna thank you very much for joining us.

"Rob, welcome to the program. Hello, Robert. Let's start with this matter of Djamil Khashoggi. Can you take us through what we know has happened and what's been alleged to have happened? Well, what we know has happened is that he left London and went to ball to get paperwork from the Saudi consulate to show that he had been divorced so that he could marry his Turkish fiance, he walked to the consulate with her. She waited outside. He gave her his cell phone because you can't take cell phones into diplomatic missions. And she waited eleven hours and he never came out. The whole area is surrounded with security cameras, and there's no footage of him ever leaving the concert. That's what we know what we have since heard is Turkish officials on the record saying that they believe that he was murdered, although the Turkish. Government has not said that officially, but there's a huge mystery around what exactly has happened to him inside that diplomatic mission on what do Turkish officials base their accusation? Well, I don't know. They have access to security footage of people coming in and out of the country at airports and all around his ball. So we're waiting on them to tell us exactly what they know. But if someone walks into a diplomatic mission and doesn't come out, but there are caused diplomatic license plate. 'cause going in and out. It leads to all kinds of speculation. Here we are six days later. There is no proof of life and a very prominent Saudi journalist and critic of the government has gone missing with no explanation. You tell us more about this guy Jamila Shug she we said, he's a prominent journalist, but what kind of journalism is he prominent? Four? Well, he worked as an editor. He edited a paper called l. Watan in Saudi Arabia for a long time. He was very close. To the government at that point. In fact, at one time, he was even an advisor to the interior minister in the previous government. So he's part of the old Saudi establishment. But when the new crown prince took over the reins of power from his father king Salman, there'd be the came a crackdown on independent journalism unplug and Jamaica Shoji was told to get off Twitter where he was criticizing some of the policies and he was affected silenced. At that point. He decided he could no longer work under those conditions. And so he exiled himself to the United States where here he became a columnist for the Washington Post and continue to write another publications and in the Arab world, both in the English speaking and era speaking, scholars of the of the region, he was very well known and very well followed the current ruler of Saudi Arabia. Mohammed bin Salman has gone to some pains. To present Saudi Arabia as a country that is modernizing its allowed women to drive. For example, it's trying to make all manner of new business deals and so forth with the US and other countries has the Saudi government responded to this. No, they they have said only that they denied that say, he's inside the consulate in this stem bull, they organized some kind of a sham tool for journalists where they took them in and say, look, there's no one in here. Listen, Saudi Arabia is a very, very repressive place for independent journalism. It's probably on the committee to protect journalists list of the most sense countries in the world. Saudi ranks number three behind North Korea. It's always been difficult for independent journalists. We have seven journalists that we know what behind bars for their work lost you and we believe that the government has continued to crack down this year and jailed probably or is holding at least another seven. So there is a atmosphere repression. And when journalists step over son line that the crown prince doesn't like they are either detained or and other other. Ways, knocked down as a warning to other journalists and bloggers not to do the same. So there's a cut a chilling effect that's created by cracking down on individual journalists. Yeah, I'm looking at the list at least the twenty fifteen version of the ten most censored countries. Saudi Arabia is third, North Korea is second, and in first place is era trae. We're speaking to rob Mahoney the deputy director of the committee to protect journalists. This is a story that's been on some of your minds as well to coma twenty two d tweeted. I'm absolutely horrified by the atrocity that may have been perpetrated on Mr..
