Very different, symbolic hajj in Saudi Arabia amid virus
"News. The Corona virus strikes again. The huh, JJ, which starts tomorrow will not allow the normal gathering of more than two million Muslims. The annual pilgrimage to Mecca is known for teeming masses of people who walk closely together, sit shoulder to shoulder to pray. And often campout and crowded tents. But this year, only an estimated 1000 people are expected to attend. Physical distancing will be enforced and masks will be required. Bloomberg's Saudi Arabia correspondent. Vivian Knee Rhyme has been covering How, huh, JJ will be different this year. She joins us Now. Welcome. Hi. Thank you so much for having me. Can you just start out by reminding us what the religious significance of the Hodges for Muslims all around the world, So the Hodja is one of the most important act that any Muslim might perform in their life. It is considered to be one of the five pillars of Islam. It is actually obligatory for every Muslim to perform the hajj once in their life, if they're able to financially and physically, so it's something that people save up for and apply for again year after year. Well, because the Saudi government is determined to make sure people are physically distanced. This year. You estimate that only about 1000 people will be in attendance tomorrow. So how are these 1000 people selected like where they from? Yeah, So one thing that had been a little bit strange that the government has been a little bit secretive about what the actual number is this year, the hedge minister has said it's between around 1000 and 10,000. We do think it's going to be probably closer to around 1000 and that includes about 30% Saudi nationals, and the other 70% are foreign citizens who reside already in Saudi Arabia, so nobody will be performing. The hajj is here coming from outside of the kingdom. They were selected through an online betting system. Most of it was about health criteria. You had to be between the ages of 20 and 50. You had to not have any chronic diseases. So everybody who was selected among the pilgrims did get a PCR test for Corona virus, and then they were isolated during a home quarantine for about a week. After which they travel to Mecca, and they've been in a hotel quarantine sort of isolated individual hotel rooms for about four days now, so they haven't even really met each other. For the most part, they communicate over WhatsApp, you know, they get their meals, the room service. It's a very different experience than it would be in a normal year when you're kind of a human sea of people from all over the world, gathering and eating and praying together. Besides, they're being dramatically fewer people this year. How do you think the high judge will feel different compared to years past? Well, I think it's just a completely different animal in a lot of ways. I mean, normally a huge part of going to Mecca and performing the pilgrimage is just that rubbing shoulders with people from all different social classes and all different nationalities. Obviously, that physical closeness has completely gone, so there's going to be social distancing markers around the Grand Mosque to ensure that people are actually you know, 1.5 meters apart, so that's a very big deal. There's also a point in the pilgrimage win. Welcome to be gathering pebbles, small stones along the route that they throw at thes three stone pillars that symbolize kind of repelling of evil, and these pebbles this year will be distributed to them in pre sealed packets, and they're sterilized, So it's a very different kind of feel there. They're also wearing these tracking bracelets insure that they complied with the quarantine, and if they stray more than a certain distance from their phone kind of urges them to reconnect to their Bluetooth, a lot of technology that's infusing this year's hajj in order to Kind of enforced that social distancing and make sure that the House doesn't become a super spreader event because Saudi Arabia, like a lot of other countries, has had a couple of different peaks of Corona virus cases, which are now on the decline and Mecca at one point was really the epicenter of Saudi

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
Americans find oil in Saudi Arabia - Mar. 3, 1938
"Today is March. Third Twenty twenty. The Day was March third. Nineteen thirty eight. A group of oil prospectors working for an American company discovered a commercially viable source of Petroleum Mayor Demaim in Saudi Arabia since then Saudi Arabia has consistently been one of the world's top oil producers. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was established in one thousand nine hundred eighty two when even so combined four regions into one st through conquest even so called for searches for oil a resource that had demand and would be big source of income for a country that needed a boost in its economy in nineteen thirty three. Saudi Arabia signed a contract with the Standard Oil Company of California. Also known as so cow. So cal was granted the right to prospect for oil in Saudi Arabia's eastern provinces side note. So cal is now. Chevron in September of that year American geologist arrived in Saudi Arabia to begin surveys of the land by car airplane. A couple of months later the California Arabian Standard. Oil Company was formed. Cassocks name was later changed to Arabian American Oil Company or Aramco. Geologists began surveying an area around ideological formation near the city of Demaim on the east coast of the country drilling. The first began in April of nineteen thirty. Five in terms of the second whale started in February of Nineteen thirty six soon. More wells were authorized in the area. Those wells did produce some oil but most of them eventually produced more water than oil. Demaim Oilwell number seven at first seemed like it would also be fruitless. The well reached more than three thousand feet beneath the earth. And no water or oil had been found but chief geologist Max. Steiner key thought that they would find oil in the will and he told the company to keep drilling they did and on March third nineteen thirty eight. They struck a significant amount of oil within three weeks. The well had produced over one hundred thousand barrels of oil. In the beginning the oil was sent to. Bahrain barred for export but in nineteen thirty nine. The first tanker load of oil was shipped overseas now. That castle had found oil. It continued mapping and exploring Saudi Arabia looking for more by nineteen forty nine Kazakh. Now Aramco had reached a production of five hundred thousand barrels per day by nineteen fifty. The Trans Arabian pipeline. Had Begun Operations Aramco already paid Saudi Arabia a fee and other benefits but that year. Aramco began to split its profits but the Saudi government nineteen seventy-three the Saudi government purchased twenty five percent of Aramco by the next year it increased. Its stake to sixty percent and in one thousand nine hundred eighty all of course oil rights production apparatus and facilities came under government control by this time demaim oilwell number seven alone have produced more than twenty seven million barrels. Eight years later the company became Saudi Aramco over the next few decades. The company continued to expand its operations and production fuelling Saudi Arabia's economy of course oil production in Saudi Arabia has been an issue closely tied to economics politics and the environment today. Saudi Arabia is the world's second largest crude oil

Just spaces were delivery drivers lineup to pick up their latest stash of Burgers and onion rings. Some like cloud kitchen owned by Uber's ousted. Ceo Travis Kalanick's go to great lengths to hide their kitchens. Locations calendar clearly takes the ghost named seriously. Here's what else they have in common. They are suddenly everywhere.

Dissecting Trump's Twitter 'Diplomacy'
"Their Israeli for better unusually for worse no more enthusiastic proponent of twitter diplomacy in US President Donald Trump joining us now to dissect a representative few of trump's interestingly punctuated blurts. Is Brian Close political scientist. I author and Washington Post columnist by way of imbuing trump's tweets with a finesse. The ill deserve. They are read by foreign desk producer. You'll engulf on any and all grammatical infelicitous of the fault of the author not the narrator September fifteenth two thousand nineteen mystery missiles target. Saudi oilfields Saudi Arabia. Oil Supply was attacked. There's reason to believe that we know the culprit are locked and loaded depending on verification but are waiting to hear from the kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack and under what terms we would proceed. This is amazing tweet because this is the second time that Donald Trump has issues locked and loaded. The first was when he was saying that he was about to attack North Korea. And it just shows you know the twitter diplomacy made on the fly where nobody believes what trump obsess anymore. You know that He. He is a saying who's behind the attack. People are questioning that and then you have. This claim that he's about to attack them which people again are questioning with good reason that his twitter threats are increasingly erratic and also unfounded and never backed up October. First two thousand seventeen reaching out to Kim Kim Jong UN being nasty Rotman hasn't worked in twenty five years. Why would it work now? Clinton failed. Bush failed and Obama failed. I won't fail. I love this tweet. For several reasons I is that he's has been nice to rocket man hasn't worked in twenty five years. Kim Jung took office in two thousand eleven. So penalized him when he was a child probably wasn't going to be a very fruitful way of conducting diplomacy anyway Clinton and Bush of course did not even deal with Kim Jong into any point and then the second layer of this of course is saying that being nice to him hasn't worked it won't work now. Well trump said that he was in love with Kim Jong Hoon after this tweet so I would classify that as being nice and then finally. I won't fail well. I mean what's happened. Since trump's multiple summits with Kim Jong is that Kim has gotten a massive boost international national profile and legitimacy by meeting with President without any preconditions and has simaltaneously ramped up the missile program and the nuclear capability which is the only point of involving involving Kim Jong UN and diplomacy so there are many many problems that tweets but my favorite one is the idea that trying to have diplomatic relations with a three year. Old Somehow didn't work. July thirtieth two thousand nineteen trade wars are good apparently and easy to win. China is doing very badly worst year in twenty seven was supposed supposed to start buying our agricultural product now no signs that they are doing so that is the problem with China they just don't come through. Our economy has become much much larger than the Chinese economy is last three years. Where do you start with the stuff of it? The idea that the US economy has eclipsed the Chinese economy in the last three years because because of trump is an amazing claim. And then the other thing. That's sort of unspoken this tweet but if you know trump's tweets really jumps out to you is the number of times that he contradicts himself so he constantly says things on twitter like China has just announced that they are going to be buying massive amounts of soybean from a great Patriot farmers and then a week or two who later. He has this tweet where he says. Effectively they're not actually doing it and then he'll come back and make the same claim again and so it's this sort of whiplash that twitter allows him to get away with because his base. Here's this they think okay China's now going to buy some soybeans well. The people in his twitter base are not the people who are actually selling soybeans. So they don't know if it's happened and they believe him and he can get away with it and this is where I think. Twitter diplomacy also bleeds into domestic politics. Where you end up having a lack lack of accountability because you can just shoot off a claim everybody moves on and then it's like it never happened when it's false? I think that the trade war stuff though is also indicative of how miscalculation can be very dangerous because China is actually reading these tweets trying to make not just sense of them but make policy based on them and they have no idea what it means. I mean it's riddled with Typos and grammatical errors. And then you know. They're they're scratching their their chins sort of saying will two weeks ago. He seemed to be happy with President. Then she now he's not and this causes again. Miscalculation which is I think the name of the game for twitter diplomacy July eighth two thousand nineteen some thoughts on Brexit and on the. UK's outgoing going. I'm blessed to the. US have been very critical about the way the UK and Prime Minister Theresa May Handle Brexit. What a mess? She and her representatives have created. I told her how it should be done but she decided to go another way. I didn't know the ambassador but he's not liked or well within the US we will no longer deal with him. The good news for the wonderful United Kingdom is that they will soon have a new prime minister. While I thoroughly enjoyed the magnificent state visit last month it was the queen who I was most impressed with so this tweet I think unveil some of the other problems with twitter when it comes to diplomacy and that is that statements of national importance is can be made without vetting. You know if there was actually communicate from the White House in the past this would have gone through a series of different advisors it would have been checked and the first instance in which trump trump tweeted about theresa. May He misspelled her name and accidentally tagged somebody with I believe one hundred sixty twitter followers. So you know. It's not exactly a crack team at the White House when it comes comes to twitter but then beyond this when he says she didn't go the way that I said what he's actually talking about according to the UK government is his suggestions that she sued the the European European Union as a way to solve brexit which his maybe it's ludicrous it's idiocy it's not going to work and then you have sort of the basic ignorance that comes out of these types of tweets. Were win actually. Trump arrives in the UK and gets pressed on various tweets though ask him questions and the followup about say is the NHS on the table the National Health Service on table in trade negotiations and he doesn't know what it is and this is again. You know this is the problem when you can make a statement you interfere in the affairs or politics of an allied country country and have no idea what. You're talking about October sixteenth two thousand eighteen taking Saudi Arabia's word for it just spoke with the Grand Prince of Saudi Arabia who totally denied any knowledge of what took place in their Turkish consulate. He was with Secretary of State. Mike Pompeo during the call and told me that he has already started and will rapidly. Expand fanned a full and complete investigation into this matter. Answers will be forthcoming shortly. This is of course about Jamal Kashogi who's a fellow columnists the Washington Post just before he was murdered and dismembered by the Saudi government which then led to a series of attempted cover ups by the Saudi government's with trump's help where he tried to sweep it under the rug. And and say you know they don't know anything about it and provide political cover to the Saudis and I think you know. This is the dark side of twitter where you can very quickly spread. What is clearly misinformation in pursuit of diplomatic relationship where trump clearly values for a variety of reasons whether it's strategic reasons or his financial conflicts of interest with the Saudi Kingdom? And you know a different president a pre twitter era first off would not have made the statement and secondly would have waited till the facts came out before staking the credibility of the White House on something something that was going to be very quickly debunked. I mean one of the famous examples during the Kashogi investigation was the idea that he had left the consulate. When the Saudis put a body double in clothes it was similar to Shoji's but forgot to change his shoes I mean it was amateur hour and for the US president in the White House to be affiliated with it because of such sporadic in a quick quick tweets was just embarrassing for the credibility of the United States August? Twenty of two thousand nine hundred an attempt at humor accompanied by a mockup of a trump trump casino on the Tundra. I promise not to do this degree land so this is a a photo shopped photo of trump property a trump hotel in greenland amongst a sort of sparse looking fishing village. And I think this is well is one of those moments where you have trump make a comment in the sort of real oh world right off off of cyberspace where he says. Maybe we'll buy greenland and then it sparks. This whole controversy of how Silva's claim is this proposal etc and and then he tries to make light of it as though it was a joke to begin with on twitter. But I think that this is also important in highlighting the risks of twitter in terms of photoshop or doctored images and trump did this with greenland as joke and there was obviously a joke. But there's other times where he's done and hasn't been a joke so he has sent tweets where they have basically doctored video video of Jim Acosta the CNN reporter who was temporarily banned from the White House looking more aggressive than he was because they speed it up his arm movement yeah right and this went throughout the conservative twitter sphere. Very very quickly. You can imagine something like that happening in diplomacy to. That's the big risk is that as deep technology for example fake videos that look very convincing or photo shopped images or any sort of disinformation campaign actually gets promoted by governments and by presidents presidents. That's where we answered very very dangerous territory and this type of stuff. I mean again when you think about the combination of Dr Video doctored images all being promoted by trump trump with no regard for the facts and the lack of credibility that he already has how much more dangerous it gets when you try to make sense of as a foreign diplomat Brian.

"This is part of the reason why I hate the. I mean, I hate the idea of UB I for a lot of reasons. But one of the things that almost like bothers me the most is when they'll be like, well, this is just a way to government welfare the welfare state is so inefficient. And so we could make it more efficient with the UB. I and you're like, yeah. The last thing I want to do is make the state more efficient. It's like are only are only fucking hope is that they're inefficiencies end up killing him at some point. Right. Like, why would you wanna make an evil institution? That's a founded and funded by theft, more efficient. I have no interest in that. And one of our only hopes is that as the state, you know, grows, bigger and bigger it's unable to kind of contain itself, and it gets exposed. But that's what's happening with the deep state. I mean at this point I saw the figure the other day. And I can't remember exactly I think it was three or four million people. There's three or four million people who have top level security clearances. There's so many it's so big at this point. There's so many people involved in all this shit that they're just trusting these vital. Secrets to people that they have. No, no. No, no, certainty aren't going to be stealing them and handing them over to some goofy. Fucking Australian who's ready to fucking shown to the world. Now, it's not exactly a new shocker to tell everyone that government isn't exactly consistent with its logic. But I it is kind of interesting to me than when it comes to Google and Facebook, they're trying to treat them like they're journalists. And then he got the Julian Assange guy, and they're trying treat him like the internet is a different way of publishing news. Yeah. Yeah. No magin. Well, just imagine for another ju just another way to look at it. Imagine if. Some other country. So let's say imagine if Saudi Arabia had some secrets about how they killed Khashoggi or something like that. Hallway that's more of a Japanese twist on it? But imagine they end some secrets about how they were killing people in Yemen or they killed that journalists Casale g saying that wrong now now hoagie man now, I don't trust myself. Kobe. And some American. Published? You know, he got his hands on the classified information that he got his hands on the Saudi secrets, and he published and said, hey, this is what the Saudi government's doing. And then the Saudi government demanded that we turn over this American to Qatar who's going to send them over to Saudi Arabia Q. Imagine the outrage that Americans would feel over that. Like fuck you. That's his fuck and right? He he has every right to publish information. And the idea that you wouldn't the idea that you wouldn't publish state secrets that the state can now say to a news organization now that's off limits is just I mean, there's something really terrifying about that level of authoritarian power. So I don't know. I don't know what else to say about it. Best of luck to Julian Assange. I hope he can I hope he's got some dirt. I he's got some fucking video. Show of Hillary Clinton in Nancy Pelosi spit, you know, suck and feed us blood into their face in the morning or something. I don't know. I know the videos out there somewhere, but maybe maybe he's got something up his sleeve, and and he can find a way to to keep his freedom. But I don't know that's a big f a big big f so Julian Assange hero, and the government is a criminal organization, and I guess that's where I will wrap on that one. All right, another another big story data that came out over the course of this week that I thought was interesting and worth talking about and kind of touches on a theme of somewhat similar to what we were talking about with Julian Assange case, and and and ties right into stuff..

"Wyden is the senior democratic Senator from the state. He doesn't live far from where Saudi national AbdulRahman, Nora allegedly struck and killed Fallon smart. And he says it was Shane Dixon. Kavanagh's reporting on this pattern of behavior by the Saudi government that God is attention. What I think really galvanized new focus on. This was the effort by the Oregonian newspaper at the end of the year, which essentially reported that credible. Government officials said that they believe that the Saudi government with involved in with giving away these criminal suspects. In response Senator Wyden alongside fellow Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley introduced two pieces of legislation. Late last month the escape of Saudi nationals act and the preserving American Justice Act aimed to stop foreign consulates from helping their citizens escape the US judicial system. But when I sat down with Senator Wyden, he says the response from federal agencies has been slow year. We are six weeks later and administration officials like the secretary of state won't answer. A thing goal question or say a single word about this troubling pattern six weeks in and you've followed up with the the State Department and the Justice department on on this that that that's correct? We have been after the Justice department, the FBI the State Department customs and border patrol because what we want to know a really to matters. What evidence do the key government departments have with respect to the thought he government helping its citizens? Flee American Justice. And then second what are they doing about it, for example, in the second letter to the secretary of state, I made the point that I believe the secretary of state ought to bring in the thought he ambassador and demand to know what the government knows about this. And what the Saudi government is doing to bring these criminal suspects back to Oregon could face Justice. What do you think it says about the American judicial system that there's this apparent loophole in which a powerful ally can can help someone skirt Justice like this, it raises very substantial questions in my mind about whether the Trump administration simply believe that the rule of law does not apply to Saudi Arabia. And particularly coming after the bar barbaric murder of Jamal kashogi. You have to ask yourself. Whether the thought he government understands that it is unacceptable to whisk criminal suspects out of Oregon or anywhere else in the United States Secretary of state Pompeo, who who you mentioned earlier, he's been a key figure in the aftermath of the the death of journalist Jamal kashogi and in terms of interacting with the Saudi government. Do you think Pompeo is just in general being too soft on Saudi Arabia? Well, let's put it this way. I also serve on Senate select committee on intelligence, and I'm not going to get into anything classified. But I think when you look at the public statements mean I asked a question with respect to the inanimate finding of the Senate as to Mr. kashogi and Gina house ball. Wouldn't answer it in an open session of the intelligence committee. My concern is the distant ministration has sent a whole host of signals that they are willing. And I'm not gonna speculate on motive they're willing to basically say that the rule of law doesn't apply to the Saudis. We have to take a quick break. But we'll have more with Senator Wyden in just a moment. The takeaway is supported by Staples with organization solutions for business, including calendars file, folders banker's, boxes and storage bins. More at Staples stores or Staples dot com. Staples. We return now with Senator Ron Wyden. Democratic Senator from Oregon talking about the help the Saudi government is believed to be providing to Saudi nationals who've committed crimes in the United States. And we picked up by talking about the legislation that he and Senator Merkley introduced in the Senate at the end of January, the focus of Senator Merkley legislation is try to collect the data about how widespread the practice is what governments are involved what I've tried to focus on is to try to up the ante in terms of tough consequences for the government and their leaders. I'm the ranking democrat on the Senate finance committee. What we have proposed for example, are very substantial tax penalties because we have jurisdiction over a tax law, which could affect sovereign wealth funds and could certainly. Allow for tough penalties against other high ranking authority officials is part of the issue that there's no extradition treaty with Saudi Arabia. Is that something you're you're looking at to? Yes. I mean, clearly that is one of the limits in that's why I'm going to be looking at a variety of approaches to ensure there's some consequences. Here's what it comes down to you. And I'm gonna head and home in a few days. And I'm sure it's gonna come up. We're feel that we're basically dealing with the needy evil. Government is very interested in flouting modern diplomatic norms of why introduce legislation to bar Saudi Arabia's leaders from the United States until the government returned suspects who fled and we send a very strong. Message through the tax law with major tax penalties on governments and sovereign wealth fund from a country that helps it citizens escape American Justice before we let you go Senator as you mentioned, you're a member of the Senate intelligence committee. Can you tell us where the committee might be in its investigation into Russian interference in the election. I don't wanna be obstreperous. But that that is exactly the kind of subject that we are barred from. But let me just give you might suspect that I can talk about publicly. I still believe there is much work to do on. What I believe is the central question, which are the issues surrounding followed the money issues, and I have said this since the very first day, we banged the gavel on this. And the reason I said that is that following the money, essentially, counterintelligence one on one if you wanna compromise somebody, you compromise them with money, and there's a lot of work that should be done, for example. And it ought to be done in a public hearing on the Moscow tower because Michael Cohen has already essentially admitted that he lied that the efforts with respect to the Moscow tower and Allred the news stories penthouses and went on well into that kind of run up to the two thousand sixteen election. So. I will tell you from my standpoint, there's lots of having lifting to do in the Senate intelligence committee on follow the money issues. And I believe that significant portion of that ought to be done in an open air. And lastly, the we might know more about all of this stuff through them more report. I imagine you believe that that report needs to be made public. I would pull out all the stops to make sure that report they're sensitive intelligence matters in you cannot ensure that those are not divulged that I'd go the floor of the United States Senate and push very hard to make sure that the truth gets the American people on the judiciary committee. There's bipartisan effort to promote that.

This is a very unprofessional move to involve people who are not alone your own forces in these kind of sensitive peration, the ask them with the day, a willing to take the time for all of money, some of the kingdom's enemies. Ronin Berbau wanted to ask you terms of this. This this attempt by the Saudi government to get involved in these kinds of nations. Is it your sense? I mean, Israel as you documented in your book has been practicing targeted assassinations. Now for decades of I recall back in the sixties or even going back further to the fifties. This was a rare situation. Remember, for instance, in the story of of professor from Columbia University Galindo's who the dictator to he you had kidnapped off the streets of New York City a Columbia University. Professor, and he was put on a plane to the medical Republican thrown out of the plane subsequent relief that to assassins who had kidnapped him where themselves killed by through. He'll but this was considered a rare situation back in the fifties. And the sixties can you talk about how your senses that governments are now increasingly resorting to this kind of a fascinating to settle their their political aims of thinking. Now, for instance, of several assassinations we've seen linked to Russian. Dissidents by the Putin government is this becoming an increasing trend across the world. Well, I think we need to differentiate Israel has been using targeted killing more than any other country in the whist post the second World War, but Israel has defined enemies and defined targets targeted killings of either proliferators of weapons of mass destructions all terrorists of we know not you about something very different. This is killing political opponents of I think maybe someone in Saudi Arabia's. So what putting has been doing allegedly at least doing in the last few years, which is killing. Poisoning. Shooting in good, maybe jealous of the of what the Russians have been doing intimidate in intimidating other rivals dissidents and try to do the same. But in that case the operation was done such a mature sweet in such a unprofessional. So to speak way, it was very easy to discover that it's either the south train very hubris thing that they can get away from with with with everything what we see that knowledge. Be ability of the Turkish intelligence to intercept Kohl's in phone conversations and conviction inside the consulate the defect that everything is being monitored. By cameras the way that made a data is being achieved makes operations for terrorist. But also to states for that assessment much much harder.

That's right. Jim Acosta who because of a court order has had his press pass given back to him. He asked President Trump. He's letting Saudi Arabia get away with murder. No, no, no. This is about America. First. They're paying us four hundred billion dollars plus the purchase and investor country. That's probably the biggest amount ever paid to the United States. This is over a long period of time. It means hundreds of thousands of jobs, billions of dollars of investment and brought up at if you think I'm gonna let Russia have that money or more those for those things if you think I'm gonna let China make the military equipment. Hey, China and Russia would love to make one hundred billion dollars worth of ilitary quipping from Saudi Arabia. We have the contracts they wanted those contracts that would be a big fat beautiful gift to Russia and to China. They're not gonna get that gift. Just so you understand about make America.

The Saudi government has finally admitted that Washington Post columnist gay Shoji is dead and that they killed him. Here's their story via the official Saudi Press Agency. The primary investigation indicated that the discussions which occurred between him that would be kashogi and the persons who met him while he was present at the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul, led to a quarrel and fighting by hand with the citizen Jamal kashogi, which led to his death there saying it was an accident. The results of quarrel that got out of hand that is what the Saudis wants you to believe. Never mind. The Turkish officials have said they have evidence much of it confirmed by other journalists. The fifteen Saudi agents flew into is tumble on October second assassinated. Mr. kashogi dismembered his body with a bone saw they had brought for the purpose and flew out the same day. One of those age. Agents was a forensic doctor who specializes in autopsies. Now, the statement from the Saudis does not explain any of that, nor does it say what has happened to the body of Jamal Shoji? And tonight as we mourn the death of a Washington Post journalist at the hands of government that wanted to silence him, Donald Trump is currently in Arizona, preparing for another maga- rally, like the one he held last night in Montana in which he cheered, the criminal physical assaults of journalists from the guardian by a Republican congressman who didn't like the question. He was being asked Representative, Greg, Gianforte pleaded guilty to that assault Trump in the crowd, loved it. Any guys that could do a body slam. He's Mike..

"Top story this week and we'll it's all been happening in the worlds of extrajudicial slayings by the Saudi government's. It's been it's ridic- week for that. No, no, probably the first time, so fought touch with this recording has not yet been interrupted by the Saudi secret services, sneak into studios and disappearing, either me or Hauri as it. Hari Hari. Are you still there? Yeah. Just like all rocket cost might be just sold them to jet to get trouble. This is an extraordinary story. Hari actual our listeners know the details. But the the allegations that the Saudi government have just murdered one of their own citizens in the embassy in Turkey and the international community has well not shower them with compliments for this. I think that's that's fair to say. Yeah, yeah. Especially the Turkish government has also frustrated that happened on their turf, and also they've accused the Saudi government or whoever was sent by the Saudi government of cutting kashogi into pieces with the bone saw or as Fox News put making more of him to love. The, I mean, there's a hell of the hell. The spin on this. Well, that's good. It's it's very English of them to if they cut him into pieces if I remember from several weeks. So you told me that is a British tradition. Well, yeah, that's how we Mike things palatable without having any any national culinary skills. The Saudi Arabian reaction has understandably confused to receive this criticism from their international allies. Because when you look at it in Yemenite bombing, school buses and refugee camps, all the classic targets that bring thousands and thousands of civilian casualties. Fifty thousand children stall to death since his result of Saudi action in Yemen over that western allies. Bell even twitching eyebrow in reproach. We in Britain and America. Our, we've turtled off thumbs. We whistled and ninety nine hundred cups. I'm gonna look out the window pretending to be really interested by Paulson cloud to bit look, splurge mashed potato as Saudi Arabia have collaterally damaged thousands and thousands of people to death, even as all friends and business partners have executed numerous political dissidents and conducted a regime moved. I fact gender Paul. We have talked the Saudi billions demurely into undefended lasting an undone couple more buttons for them, but they disappear just one journalist, one weather, thin journey. List's an all of a sudden we're up in arms is not one of that so confused. I think that's a very fair point. And I also think that we're not looking at the positives that came out of this ROY. Okay. It's really hard to look at that, but if you, you know, I deal reading the person who drove the getaway car with the body was a woman who, well, what about that? Nobody nobody talks about that. You don't think that's progress is this is one of the first filly feminist extrajudicial slayings in in global political history? Correct? Yeah. Say Trotsky Ving bumps off, but by lady with an ice pick. Oy at Donald Trump's reactionist being as a wise curious, a sort of say, well, I shouldn't have done it. And then he said, well, maybe they didn't do it. And then he said, even if I did do it is gonna make much difference because there were a of money to America and it's, I think you have to admire trum for this because there is no world leader that is as prepared to where the fool's gold lawmaker schlitz panties, economic prostitution, quotas brazenly as Donald Trump. I mean, yes, it is wrong to kill, hack up and vanish journalist, but it's not wrong enough to lose sleep over. Sorry, lose jobs over lose jobs, all all sleep over. I guess, in in Trump's moral universe, that's really all the counts. I mean, it's obviously there's a lot of conflict of interests from both the Saudi government and the US government in terms of their investigations, the US end there an administration that hates critical journalists that's investigating another administration who. Who hates critical journalists and also the Saudi government's, you know, investigations clearly going to be a little compromise since they're claiming they're making a concerted effort to prove they killed this man. Cure what I mean, like we are going to prove whether or not we did it. So that's Specht. And Finally, I also questioned Trump because it's Trump and he, he made a claim because he makes claims and he makes lots of claims..
"saudi government" Discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
"Now it's time for the last word Ali bell. She is in for Lawrence to make an evening alley, Rachel, the entire country should be up in arms about your description of what's going on in North Dakota and the voting laws. Thank you for all the detail. You went into to explain how many people in North Dakota very legitimately do not have street addresses and maybe disenfranchised because of that. You have a great evening, rich much. Appreciate it. All right. I've alley Belsey in for Lawrence O'Donnell a lot to get to tonight, including congressman Adam Schiff ranking member in the house intelligence committee who will join me in studio to discuss the United States relationship with Saudi Arabia and what Donald Trump said last night about possibly firing, Robert Muller after the midterms that's coming up. But first tonight, NBC news is reporting that Saudi Arabia's discussing a plan to admit that missing Washington Post columnist. Jamal kashogi was killed after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, thirteen days ago. But the story reportedly being prepared by the Saudi government is raising even more questions including why it seems to line up with a new theory floated. President Trump today. NBC news spoke with three people who have knowledge of the situation quote according to two of the individuals, the Saudis are putting together an explanation that would absolve crown prince Mohammad bin some on the putative leader of Saudi Arabia responsibility by giving him plausible deniability to say he didn't order the killing and didn't know about it such an off ramp could provide a way for Saudi leadership to save face and explain away their previous insistence that kashogi she wasn't killed in the consulate. NBC news also reporting tonight. One of those two individuals said he was told by those close to the Saudi leadership that the kingdom will claim that rogue operatives killed kashogi during an interrogation or rendition attempt that went horribly awry. The third individual said that the US government still doesn't know precisely what the explanation the Saudis planned to give, but the Saudis intend to admit culpability. The explanation of an interrogation gone wrong seems to be contradicted by some of what the Turkish government has revealed about the incident which the New York Times reported quote include signs of deliberate assassination among other things Turkish officials have said, an autopsy specialist carrying a bone saw was among fifteen Saudi operatives who flew to Istanbul on October second the day that Mr. kashogi disappeared. President said this tonight about the possibility that Saudi Arabia may be about to admit the kashogi she was killed in an interrogation gone wrong. I just don't know. I'm going to have to see what they said. I heard, but nobody knows it said official reports so far to the rule of the rumor of report coming in. Speaking to reporters earlier today, the president seemed indicate he was at least open to if not outright supportive of the denials of any involvement issued by Saudi Arabia. At the White House this morning, he even seemed to invent a new explanation for the killing rogue killers. With the king of Saudi Arabia, who denies any knowledge of what plays with regard to as he said his Saudi Arabian citizen. He didn't really know. Maybe I, I don't want to get into his mind, but it sounded to me like maybe these have been rogue killers Bruno's gates. Okay. So it sounded like the president interpreted that to mean rope killers, and I'm going to get back to what the president just said about the Saudi Arabian citizen that's going to be important. The president didn't say what evidence he might have to support the theory that it sounded like quote, rogue killers. It's also not clear why it seems to so closely match the new story being floated by the Saudis tonight. This is not the first time Donald Trump blamed rogue operatives for something. Despite the evidence Donald Trump's statements today look a lot like his response when Russia's Vladimir Putin was accused of interfering in the two thousand sixteen election today. It was rogue killers in two thousand sixteen. It was rogue hackers. Russia, but it could also be China could also be lots of other people. It also could be somebody's sitting on the bed that weighs four hundred pounds. Okay. And that wasn't the only thing President Trump said today that sounded similar to what he said about Putin. King firmly denies any knowledge of it to the Nile was very strong..

"In extra territorial, extrajudicial killing a gentlest in techie. And then the next day expects all of global civil society from the presidents of the well Bank and Christine Lagarde from the IMF and all the way down to the end of the CEO's of Goldman Sachs and BlackRock and all the rest of it took common sort of pay their respects to this great founders of cash. Should you sort of rewind and explain a little bit more about what you're talking? I'm really, what am I talking about here? So so last week, a Washington Post journalist named help me out her mouth showy walked into the. Saudi embassy in Turkey and never came out again and as reporting surface in the past week or two. It's looking increasingly like he was essentially murdered by the Saudi government. And the backdrop now becomes the Saudi government is putting on this essentially as Felix at Davos in the desert this big innovation conference, but even worse in the Ritz Carlton Riyadh the same Ritz Carlton that the leader of Saudi Arabia used to imprison, his political enemies is going to house. The CEO of is going to house Jamie diamond. And until recently, the CEO of Uber and all these like fancy DAV the Davos set that a non writes so well about in his book. And as a new surface of of this man's killing an apparently Abon saw was used to dismember his body, and then it was removed from the embassy according to reporting from the Washington Post. Mainly this has been embarrassing for the global elite. I mean, they don't want to be associated with this and they've been pulling out yet on Thursday and Friday this week. They've been a lot of amendments. Saying, oh, we won't go were so shocked by this. But of course it shouldn't be shocking because this isn't the first time. The leader of Saudi Arabia has been caught doing some nasty stuff. Saudi Arabia has never exactly been a paragon of human rights abuses, and. Yeah, so so the question I have you and this is like, did it really require the assassination of a member of the global elite of like a high profile, Washington Post columnist to bring home to the world? Just how sort of. You know, bad brutal. The Saudi regime is, I mean, well, first of all, it's not clear to me that it has brought home brought home to most of them. I mean, the people minority, yes of the people who as of this morning, the guy's been gone more than a week as a this morning. We're still listed on the website. These are all powerful people who have the ability to get their name off a website. I would imagine. And many of them would not even made their own Twitter announcements of whatever. So to be clear, even everything we know bone saw and all has not been sufficient for most people to to to disavow this I, I have been in conversation, for example, with with DARA spokesman at Uber since I ran into him on Wednesday in Los Angeles, and it took until late last night to get, you know, just to pull off in the conference. I also then follow it up and saying, are you willing to. Also return the massive Saudi stake in Uber. I have not gotten a response to that and tell what Uber's slogan is its new slogan under darn one is do the right thing. We do the right thing area. Yes. Come up here. Yeah, I mean, it just exposes I think what a non wrote about which is that these companies want to have it both ways. They want to say, we do the right thing period, and then they go out and they kind of do the wrong thing unless they're publicly called out and essentially harassed by a lot of journalists in which is what happened to, which is why they pulled out. And I think Mohammed bin Salman is an interesting example of almost him. He seems to be kind of modeling himself on this. I, you know, being global elite and on the one hand trying to say, oh, well, you know, I'm allowing women to drive when on the other hand, arresting all of the female activists who were pushing to get driving. And then when the Canadian foreign minister points out, as we mentioned in previous episodes of this show, he goes batch it and like pools, old, Saudi students, out of Canada and like ends diplomatic relations. Just I the saying, hey, you shouldn't jail these people..
