"Michael Saltzman is also the managing director of the employment policies is too about the war on Dr Seuss. There is one and it's happening right in our area or Dr Seuss. He's not even alive to fight back on Vince colonies along, said Beverly Harbor from the District Media group and the Independent Women's Forum. Great to have you with us all day today, Beverly. Thank you very much. Thank you So much for Mary who's got the week off. She'll be back. Um, there is a strange story going on right now. Well, that's French. You know, One of the things about the Biden administration is, um, although they claim to have some sort of focus on governing. It seems that they're really just obsessed with trying to destroy any last Pulling vestige of Donald Trump's presence in the federal government. Like they're just they're just bent on the destruction of anything ever associated with Donald Trump and something that became super popular on the left. One of the things that became popular left is that sound how Trump was facilitating a cover up for the Saudi government in the death of The columnist Jamal Kashiwagi. In 2018 Remember the Kashiwagi story where? You know, this guy walks into this diplomatic facility and he doesn't walk out. They you know a bunch of Saudi killers go in and Killed and again kill him and then dismember him and the bones saw. Remember all the horrific details about what happened to cause Shoki. And, uh, s so it's become a big thing that what we need to do is we need to hold the crown prince accountable. They that Mohammed bin Salman, the Crown prince of Saudi Arabia needs to be held accountable for this action. Okay, So how are you going to do that? So the left has been banging the drum on. You've gotta hold. MBS accountable. So this past week, the Biden administration decided to release a description of the intelligence that the United States government has a back a showbiz death and when they released it. They put the blame squarely. On Muhammed bin Salman the crown prince, okay? So if you're going to release something like that, you would presume that there would be like some sort of follow on punishment that you would then therefore released. I mean, if you're going to if you're gonna rip the scab off of that wound again. You may as well go the distance. But the weird thing is the bite. Administration didn't do that. They didn't impose any sanctions on the Crown Prince. They impose sanctions on other people within the government, but not on the crown Prince himself. Okay, So you're going to bring attention to this again? You're gonna definitely embarrass the Saudis, Which is what you did through this. You'll jeopardize whatever sort of progress we've made in that relationship. Okay, fine. But presumptive. Presumably, you would then follow it up with an actual punishment because you are that angry. At the Crown Prince. They didn't They didn't do that. So This has produced some really interesting conversations inside the State Department. Press briefing room. Beverly listen to this one. This is an Associated Press reporter Matt Lee. Taking on State Department spokesman Ned Price yesterday and not holding back. Take a listen. Just inside. You do acknowledge, though, that the fact that you did not impose any specific sanctions on the Crown Prince on Friday or today has raised some concerns among among people. You you accept that yes. I've heard reactions since since writing. Okay. So over the weekend, I guess yesterday specifically your White House colleague said that the reason or one of the reasons is that you traditionally historically don't compose sanctions in the leadership of countries with which you have diplomatic relations. Is that also your Take on this. I stand by what my colleagues said Okay, but because the reason I ask is that's just simply not true. I can give you a number of examples of written of Nicaragua, Zimbabwe, Belarus. Myanmar Even yesterday, the National Security Advisor threatened new sanctions on me and Mars leadership. We can go to Sudan. Um all of these are countries with which the United States has had developed has diplomatic relations waken look at Syria and Venezuela places where the US has suspended operations and its embassy but has not severed diplomatic ties Prices leaders have had Sanctions imposed on them. So I understand how this is an argument. What is also true is that there are countries around the world and I need not name them. I'm sure they're familiar to you with whom we have profound disagreements. These countries in many cases are Competitors. In some cases, some of our staunchest competitors in some cases they are adversaries on and in most of those cases, we do not have sanctions on their leadership. I think what I would say to your question and this gets back to what I was referring to at the top, Okay? We have talked about this in terms of our partnership with Saudi Arabia as a recalibration. It's not a Russia on. I would contextualized that by making the point that it is undeniable that Saudi Arabia is a hugely influential country in the Arab world and and Beyonce. Okay, This is totally schizophrenic. It is. There's no consistency to what they're setting up and that leave like rightly calls them out. At least wait a second. We constantly have sanctions against world leaders with which with whom we have diplomatic relations. So why decide why open up this one? Why go after it again? If you're not going to follow through with an actual punishment for the Crown Prince.

That were not you know the same as his Uncles and father and grandfather you know traditional saudi royalty but saddled kettani was also a someone who was seen as quite ruthless and using all sorts of different measures to shape the crown prince's imaging including An online campaign to silence critics on social media particularly like jamal khashoggi. He ran with a called bought farms where he would create avatars and bots to You know using fake. I persona up to do claim that they were real and they were advocating for a mohammed bin salman bin in fact they were they were phoney and they would send this army to critics and try to stifle their voices He was described as the lord of the flies because these bought arby's were described.

That sato kettani was kind of overseeing it for the crown prince. Okay give me a little more of a sense of how this group has operated and worked in a number of different ways including repatriating saudi dissident. That's right so there have been a number of cases overseas saudis. Who were ear. Attempted to be taken back to saudi arabia in the united states and in canada in europe around the middle east We believe that. The rapid intervention force was involved in some of the operations Particularly in the middle east going outside the kingdom Basically taking people Sometimes forcibly but possibly not forcibly. You're there. They are basically threatening harm to the families of people family members inside saudi arabia as a way to get people back to the kingdom and by getting back to the kingdom they're basically in effect silencing their voice right. We don't know a whole lot about specific operations that this group did but we do know that there have been all these allegations of efforts a by mohammed bin salman to do these kind of repatriation efforts around the world right and speaking of of these allegations. There are a couple of canadian cases. That have raised concerns here. Dissidents who say they have been targeted. So there's the case of ahmed abdulah. Al harbi that some of our listeners might be familiar with us. Granted asylum in canada in two thousand nineteen and then he recently reappeared in. Saudi arabia switz- stoked fears from fellow activists that he may have been forced to go back. Like you mentioned and now forced to provide intelligence to saudi officials and people also might remember the case of saudi dissident omar abdulaziz. Who's now a canadian resident. And he also said that in two thousand eighteen. Saudi agents traveled to canada to try and bring him back to the kingdom. He said his family and saudi arabia has been jailed.

"I can think of few more disastrous things for US Saudi relations than MBS of becoming King Mohammed. So you're arguing. This is not just in the moral interest of the us that this is actually in the long term strategic interest of the U. S. Yeah, Remember, NBS has been poisoned Everything he touches he's been enormously destabilizing throughout the Middle East, he created the world's worst humanitarian crisis in Yemen. And some people think that it is a shoo in for MBS to become the next king. That may be, but we really don't know, and there have been six crown princes in the last 10 years. It seems possible that if we make it very clear to Saudi Arabia that the relationship would be a profoundly troubled one. If NBS takes over that there could be 1/7. What about the argument made by White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki that it's not that they don't want to hold Mohammed bin Salman or the Saudis accountable, but that there are more effective ways to do it, she said. We need to be able to leave room to work with the Saudis on areas where there's mutual agreement. What we've effectively done is throw a rock at a Hornets nest. We've antagonized MBS in Saudi Arabia. But we haven't done enough to make King Salman think that he needs a new crown prince. And if we're willing to stand up to some degree, then I think it makes sense, too. Try to push a little bit harder in hopes that there will be a new crown Prince and you know the stakes are enormous, and it's certainly worth doing more than just tossing Iraq. Do you think this is actually realistic? King Salman is 85 years old. He's in poor health. Mohammed Bin Salman. Pretty much controls everything in the kingdom. Is it realistic to think that the U. S could exert enough influence to change the course of events there? I just don't know. And you know, I've talked to a lot of Saudis. Some say it is. Some say it isn't one reason to think that it might be is that MBS himself continues to hold hostage some of his rivals that suggests that he doesn't feel that he's entirely secure in the position. We do have leverage over Saudi Arabia. There is this perception. I think in Washington that Saudi Arabia holds all the cards. I mean, they depend on us for everything, and I think we should use that leverage. Nicholas Kristof. He writes column for The New York Times. Thank you very much great to be with you, Mary Louise.

"Okay, so, speaking of incoherent policy The Biden administration has now released a report.

Released this report. They basically said it was Mohammed bin Salman, which we already knew. You know, obviously in agree, just act to have a journalist murdered. Also worth noting that Jamal Kashiwagi, who is being treated as a champion of human rights. It was pretty inconsistent in that particular championing right. He was a big fan of the Muslim Brotherhood, hey was a radical anti Semite, but nobody deserves to get chopped up in an embassy because of all those things. Obviously, it's an act of evil by the by the Saudi administration. It also happens to be In reality of the world that we deal with administration's all the time that engage in tremendous act of evil. The Saudi administration is not unique. Nobody Was really under the There's our assumption that the Saudi administration is somehow a Western liberal regime. They are absolutely not. And let's just say this. The Biden administration is very little ground to stand on and going after the Saudis for human rights abuses while simultaneously attempting to reach out to the greatest terror sponsors on Planet Earth in the Iranians. Remember it was the Biden administration that immediately upon entering office. Do you listen to the hooches in Yemen as a terrorist group? Issued 33 separate statements in the last several weeks condemning Houthi terrorism in Yemen. Who these are not a terrorist group. All the Jews terrorism. Which is weird. Simultaneously the Biden administration is trying to claim That the Saudis are evil and terroristic and doing awful terrible things and the Iranians are good, but also They're starting to recognize that the Iranians actually are evil in terroristic, and they're operating from a false set of principles that make no sense at all. And so what This means is that Joe Biden is now stuck with his own hypocritical point of view. Puts out a report on Jamal Cash Augie's death at the hands of Saudi operatives. And he says this is outrageous and terrible. It'll be like, okay, So what you gonna do about it? And his answer is Nothing. Nothing. There was there was Joe Biden trying to explain things, which is always an adventure. We're going to hold them accountable for.

I will only deal with the king not dealing with His name it's bin salman anymore. I'm thinking how pathetic given you. Saudi arabia state in the campaign. And this really is the best that you can do if you were prime minister. Now what would you do. Hasn't he also said that they're going to restrict arm sales though on the basis of the yemen conflict which is quite a big thing about listening to the if i was a few weeks here. That's got nothing to do with this. No but it does signal a change in the us leadership's approach to saudi in fact the the the publication of the report which was in existence when trump was the president is also a sign of a change and a sort of strengthening of the position with respect to saudi i. It's so difficult because saudi is an important. You know everybody goes or just want a relationship with saudi so that you can sell them. Lots of weapons. Well yes is part of the answer to that but actually they are quite important security partner particularly in relation to counter-terror not quite often why people have perhaps not taken the very robust approach to them that you might have expected when they get inside this apparatus and begin to understand that relationship
U.S. says Saudi crown prince approved Khashoggi killing, imposes visa restrictions on 76 Saudis
"It was just about two pages long but those pages carried the weight of the. Us government will not proven a summary of findings issued by us intelligence agency state that saudi arabia's crown prince approved two thousand eighteen killing of jamal. Khashoggi it's been long suspected that prince mohammed bin salman defacto leader ordered the murder but the release of the summary finding sends a clear signal. That president biden's taking tougher stand against the kingdom than his predecessor. Npr's jackie northam has been following developments and joins us. Jackie thanks so much for being with us morning. Scott hi please give us an overview of the main findings right well just to be clear. There's no smoking gun but you know. There's a lot of circumstantial evidence in this two page report. And let me just read you a line from it. If i could quote the crown prince has had absolute control of the kingdom security and intelligence organizations making it highly unlikely that saudi officials would have carried out an operation of this nature without the crown prince's authorization unquote and scott. It goes on to say that members of his close inner circle were involved. In the killing and dismemberment of kashogi and the crown prince has supported the use of violent methods to silence dissidents abroad. And you compare what's in this report to what president trump said when asked about whether the crown prince had any knowledge of the killing and he downplayed it saying maybe he did. Maybe he didn't and One of the things to keep in mind. You know this report is a summary and there's a lot more evidence that the cia has about khashoggi's death that remains classified this report summary note but Does seem to say pretty bluntly that. The saudi crown prince has blood on his hands What kind of potential impact Could this happen relations between the us and saudi arabia. Which after all has been a very close ally for decades right. yeah well. it's it's definitely bound to have an impact you know. The crown prince is likely to become king of saudi arabia. And we'll be around for a very long time and it'll be interesting to see how the us will deal with him both in the short term after this report and certainly in the long term once he becomes king. We don't know how that's gonna shake out yet but as you say. Saudi arabia is a longtime ally in a really strategically important area of the world. You know in an interview with npr. Yesterday admiral hanes the director of national intelligence. Said it was just too soon to tell if the relationship has been damaged by this. Let's have a listen. It is not surprising. I suppose to see a shift in the relationship in some ways with the new administration and a new position and the number of challenging issues that we face together. But i think there will be what he's to whether the various storms that we have in front of us and one other thing. The saudi foreign ministry said on friday that the kingdom has already jailed. Those responsible for kashoggi's killing and that while it completely rejects the reports findings it called. Us saudi relationships robust and enduring. Jackie calls from From many quarters Clothing members of congress Human rights organizations calling on president biden to to punish sanction of the crown prince For his role in khashoggi's death. How likely does that seem to be. Biden's stop short of severely punishing the crown prince. But he said on. Friday evening that from now on the kingdom is going to be held responsible for human rights abuses and he said that there would be more significant changes announced on monday. He didn't indicate what those might be. But you know the administration did take some other steps yesterday. It announced something called the kashogi ban which allows the state department to impose visa restrictions on anyone acting on behalf of a foreign government Who's threatening dissidents overseas and it's already imposes kashogi ban on seventy six saudis and their families. And you know secretary of state. Anthony blinken talked about these moves by the us yesterday. Here he is. So what we've done by the actions that we've taken Is really not to rupture the relationship. But to recalibrate to be more in line with our interests and our values but apparently this travel ban doesn't include the crown prince himself and administration officials said on background yesterday that as a matter of practice. The us doesn't apply sanctions on the highest leadership of countries with which it has diplomatic relations and already there are increasing calls for tougher action against the saudi crown print

Who has been released from prison but still has a severe restrictions on her The second is warned. Yemeni americans have made clear that they want this war to end and the third was security reassuring king solomon that america has saudi arabia's back. And of course that is important particularly given the situation with iran and mr biden's desire to return to the jcp away and interestingly as well his secretary of state tony blinken conversation with his counterpart flies. Open fought hand the saudi foreign secretary. He said pretty much the same thing. He didn't mention the. Jane elliott little but he talked about human rights.

They're being attacked in the region, and that is certainly an area where we continue to work with them on former President Trump's policy had avoided commitment about the Saudi state's role in the journalist's murder.
Report to blame Saudi Crown Prince for death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi
"A new report blames the Saudi Crown prince for the assassination of journalist Jamal Kashiwagi. K Y. W is. Carol Mackenzie spoke with CBS News correspondent Stephen Portnoy this morning about that report. CBS News has confirmed that a classified version of it that was actually written a couple of years ago. Essentially names. Mohammed Bin Salman, the Crown prince of Saudi Arabia is having some thing to do with the death of the Virginia based journalist to Marcus Yogi, now the declassified version of something that the director of national Intelligence is apparently on the cusp of releasing. We asked the president yesterday. Whether he has read this report, he said that he had and so now it's just a matter of time before the rest of us have an opportunity to dig into it Hanging over. All of this is the bilateral relationship between the U. S and Saudi Arabia. Press secretary said yesterday as she said last week that the U. S. Intends to recalibrate its relationship with Saudi Arabia. I asked what that meant, and Jen Psaki said, Essentially, that it means that the president of the United States will be dealing with his counterpart, King Salman. Not directly with the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is said to be named in this report is being implicated in the murder of this journalist. I asked how it is that the Biden administration can engage your deal with Mohammed bin Salman. And the fact is that Mohammed bin Salman is the defense minister of Saudi Arabia. So the Biden administration sort of doing a counterpart to counterpart. Relationship s so the president will speak with King Salman. And the Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, will speak with Mohammed Bin Salman. He already has. And one thing that Jen Psaki mentioned in the briefing yesterday, which is the fact that the look the U. S and Saudi Arabia are our longstanding allies and we have a lot of mutual interests, and so that's a relationship that has to be preserved. But in this conversation that we expect to happen soon between the president and the king, I expect and we all expect that some mention of this incident will be raised and going forward. How it is that the U. S. Condell with the Saudis. If it is that Mohammed bin Salman takes power from his father in a certain point how that relationship will play out. It's gonna be for something everyone in the whole world is gonna is gonna watch CBS news White House

Not do it a different way. I think different way so so anyway it was there. They're very very good at making they were very very good at making me feel comfortable and relaxed and so on and so it was just the most enjoyable the two days so i wanna make you a little uncomfortable because i have no doubt that you're going to get the nobel prize one day and i know that did you probably don't wanna talk about it. Which is why. I want to talk about it okay. Does it occurred you. Do you think about it. I mean you know i would be lying. If i said never oh catch me but i don't think about it very much because you know the world is full of wonderful and deserving writers and only one per year gets that thing and so there's many many more candidates sure worthy candidates than we'll ever actually receive it. Of course you know and and i've been i remember years ago. Starting out newspaper asked me to write an article about all the great writers who did not win the nobel prize and in the end. I didn't never wrote the article but i did do the research and it is an amazing win. The nobel prize started tolstoy was alive and the first russian to win the nobel prize was yvonne benin <hes> who but they so the people who didn't get it stopped but tolstoy tolstoy ibsen strindberg checkoff joyce post kafka nabokov baucus is not fair kafka's welfare because posthumous writing right yeah but all the rest of it's fair of rare and then of course an enormous thomas shortage of women winners of course <hes> so. I thought well if that's if those are the people who didn't win in. I'm happy to be in that club of course suit so rich you that he loved to be well. It's a million dollars. That's alright. That'd that'd be nice yeah but boris used to say that that you say you say the nobel academy makes a habit of not giving me the nobel prize every october so the you have to treat it like it's like all prizes you know. They're very nice when you win and they kind of don't matter when you right so had you know my my i used to go to <hes> read to my son's class in school and i thought when they got to the fourth grade raid i would read this little boy he story and they would get it and they would find it fun and they seem to hang on my every word and and they finished <hes> this girl razor that was great.

That's not my character. It's not my personality the very very cerebral philosophical playful texts which i love but i started out trying to write like borges was absolute garbage. Yeah just had to revise. That's not the kind of writer i am you know. Sometimes you love writers and realize that that's absolutely not optus direction.

I said so much of jazz is improvisational. <hes> i said so. Is that a technique that you use a she said well. I want to make it look like that but at another time she said that she did think of her writing as being formerly like jazz you know and and in the sense that there is a there is a kind of architecture but there's a lot of looseness in the architecture which you find in the act of playing my own the process as a writer has become more and more and more like that <hes> when i heard her say that i remember thinking at that point in my life i needed a lot of architecture catastro- i needed to really have worked it out before i could start writing it and then listening to her.

It is and well maybe you now. You're karadzic. Maybe maybe there's another spy novel toronto's. You know the world is constantly telling you that you are a great writer. You're one of the best of all time middle is sort of stuff. I wonder what that voice does to you. When you actually sit at the head you don't hear it because the world tells me other stuff through which is less flattering. You don't hear it surely much with his writing is so difficult to do well that when you're sitting there facing that challenge you're not thinking about anybody else says you're just thinking about how to make this thing work doc and i mean this book for example. Was i mean it's a very it's a very ambitious book tries to incorporate many different kinds of literature sure and it has a very large panoramic sweep at it. It's trying. It's trying for a lot and the trouble about trying for a lot. Is it if you could put it off. That's great and if you can't you fall flat on your face. You know it's like a it's like high wire with no net so so you're too absorbed by trying to not fall off the high wire to worry about what people say about you know at times in writing novel you kind of i kind of try to see the entire thing once which intellectually is very difficult very difficult the do you get that moment of trying to hold it. All your mind wants to make sure all it's it works and that just it's really hard. It gives you a headache. It's true but it is also true. I think that in order to do the thing you do have to hold a very large about it doesn't matter how many notes you make right you have to hold a lot of it in your head because because it's like it's like the matrix is incredibly complicated located connections between characters events and places and and and <hes> you know themes that cetera and you've and you've somehow got got to balance all that in your head and and see exactly what needs to come next you know and and actually when you so. I thought i'd found sound like when i finish a book.

He is yes suddenly. He's not in your head anymore. <hes> but you think i don't have anything to think about. It's it's it feels. It feels stupid listening to sit back and be a little more granular. How do you write a sentence well. My favorite answer to that is when ernest hemingway was asked this by the paris review and he said the most most important thing a writer needs is a really good shit detector. You have to know you will hand. You have to know when it's bad yes because if you don't know when it's bad you don't know when it's good so so that's the first thing is you have to. It's strange. It's like it's schizophrenic because the actor active writing the sentence comes out of one thing in your head. Which is the creative thing you know.

I began by thinking that he was more of an effect than because that's i began my thinking that the the rift is is there any way yes the rift in the country was there anyway and he was he was a product of that yes that of course he's become. He's extremely skillful. Oh at exploiting that and twisting the knife in that wound and making an making it the the rifts deeper and and and more difficult to who he'll so. I do think that even if he were to evaporate tomorrow we'd still have a problem. Yes i mean he he has has definitely made it comfortable to be overtly racist and to challenge the existence of racism and that's not going to just sort of go away off doc the democratic fresno and the strange thing. Is you see that it's although this novel for the most part takes place in in america some bits of it takes place in in in london linden. Some backstory stuff is in india but mostly in america but this problem is in all those three countries now that's to say the the current indian administration which is just won a landslide election victory it is very popular is very divisive of setting catching hindus against muslims with very wide acceptance of that happening because he's popular you know the whole brexit nonsense in in in britain is also about disliking farmers and thinking how much nice age would be if they could return some fantasy england in which there weren't any unfortunate brown people around and when the when the country ruled the world and of course ignoring the fact that one of the consequences of the country ruling the world's that they were looting the countries where the brown people came from you know and that the wealth of england was based on on on that so these are not exactly the same phenomenon but they're they're linked that link to your of globalism zone fear of immigrants yeah exactly and i mean i've been an immigrant more or less. All my life sure so. I'm biased. I mean i feel like in some ways. I don't recognize america and in some ways. I'm like no no you do it was always just right there under the surface and now it's just come out we do you feel like i don't really recognize this place right now. It's the same it's exactly what you said i mean i do you must have been reading as i was this sixty nineteen project we the weekend times yeah and one of the things that writer after writer in that project says is that the floor in the idea of america was was there from the beginning because it was not an equal society <hes> you know it was it was a society based on crime and and in a way black people fighting for freedom way which was fighting to make the country the thing it was supposed to be great you know which which it wasn't right and so yeah i think in a way you know countries have original sins that i mean the original say of of britain is colonialism. Eh the original sin of america is slavery and to what extent do we deal with those things as culture you know <hes> i mean interestingly getting the after world war two the germans went to through a very serious process of self examination in order to deal with the fact of of nazism and i think the british have never done that about colonialism and i think this country still has a long way to go definitely has not done sunday at all what south africa did in terms of their truth and reconciliation.

I don't know whether it gives you more power because i think that's fashion in literature as there is in everything else and that great wave that went from the sixties seventies eighties with in which cut magic realist stuff was very hot. I think is not really like that now now. It's it's in a way more little see conservative time yeah right now <hes> but this book i don't really think of as quite being in the category of magic realism i think of it as actually coming from in some ways a much older classical tradition i mean the one of the things about don quixote which was a starting point is how incredibly strange and modern it feels you know don. Quixote and sancho panza are characters who know they're in a novel right. I do have opinions about the novel that they're in right very rhetoric and i thought you know he thought of this four hundred years ago right <hes> and and so my book is it pays it's all managed to don quixote but it goes on its own on a kind of different journey a so but it's inspired by this this old old literature which is the tradition of the picturesque novel in which you have the you know the word pecoraro originally means a kind of rogle scam or rascal osco and the pickerel goes on adventures but in this book you take this four hundred year old texts and you play with that story but you're commenting being on today yeah right i mean it starts with the sort of meditation on television an obsession with television taking you into a surreal world. Anna's part of your is part of your assessment of the modern world that we are being blinded to reality by television well by the junk culture of our our time of which television apart in particular reality television television that i like advocate addy like i'm an addict of loyd order as we watch much much much too much of it. There's a lot of it. There's a lot of it to watch. Thank your favorite show probably okay. I could give you other examples. Surely you love black mirror. Actually i haven't watched as much of it. I should say you're kind of show. It's what i've seen. It was terrific yeah yeah and i like. I like curb your enthusiasm but i really really. I really really like loader s._v. But so i mean i'm not immune to television. I'm talking about junk television you know and and and all the other stuff that is ancillary to that like some of the problematic areas of the internet the enormous untruthful -ness of of the internet and i'm the kind of bad madness of social media what happened just taking all that because i was thinking you know four hundred years ago the elder services was taking on what he thought was the junk culture of his time <hes> and say how these these awful novels about knights in shining mama rescuing damsels in distress were corroding the minds of people in his time so then i thought well if i wanted to take something on in that way what would be my target and and and the book started dotted from that i mean you talk about this. World of of anything can happen. Is that what you feel like. We're in because you talk about like the criminal who could become a king jack king who could be massive criminal. We've seen that over and over in recent years yeah. It's it's such a strange moment where it's as if all the things that we fought over like the rules of how things were are they just gone and and nobody nobody really knows what the new rules are all might turn into you know and so we just anything can happen.

The story that digs into how t._v. is ruining modern america and how crazy the country is now rusty says we're living in the age of anything can happen where criminals criminals can become king or even president amen to that. I've known salman for years and it's always a joy to talk to him. So let's go it salman on rushdie on tori show and my work i use magic realism as a way of getting ed the dynamism and the colorful of black culture and also to try to stand apart from from the european tradition. What is it in in your life that you have seen that makes you say okay. Magical realism is a way of expressing yeah well. I think you know what it is this that the realist novel came to fruition in and became influential at a time when writers and readers kind of essentially had the same picture of the world okay get that's to say the right. The writer could assume that his readers would see the world broadly speaking in the same way that he did and there was an agreement about the nature of the real. You know an hour of that agreement comes. The real is not but we don't live in that time anymore. There is no agreement about what the world is like. The world is a a very contested space. It's it's contested politically nationally racially in in all sorts of ways you know and and so you there isn't that agreement anymore between the writer and the reader or there isn't necessarily in agreement about what the world is like and so that undermines ends the foundation of realism you know and and you have to find other ways of telling a story ways of telling a story which which assume that there may be many truths you know they may be more than one truth and that some of those truths might be in conflict other truths <hes> and <hes> it's. It's so comes out of that somehow. Does it give you more power as a writer or does it. I don't think there was a moment when it when the in the modern manifestation which really away started in latin america brain that moment the so-called l. boom as it was called <hes> <hes> those writers gained enormous attention by the use of these techniques because they seem to readers to be reflecting the world to feel like the world that they lived in. I mean before i ever went to latin america. Latin american friends of mine would say the thing about garcia. Marquez is not fantasy then when i went to latin america i discovered that they were they were right that actually it's it's like that and and i thought the same about roy started out writing mostly about india south asia but india-pakistan and and i felt about that part of the world that the reality was so extreme and extraordinary that in fact my books felt to me he likes understatements rather than exaggerations and again what happened with those early volkswagen midnight's children when they were published they were read in the west as magic realist they were read in india as history book and it's not what i'm saying that people people read the world differently and and i've always sort brought with me that knowledge of how the world is read differently..

"I'm Marco werman and this is the world good to have you with us as Monday the disappearance of Saudi journalists, Jamal kashogi so many different angles from Turkey's investigation of what it says was kashogi brutal murder to the way Saudi Arabia's rulers treat reporters at the heart of the story, though is arguably the most powerful man in the kingdom crown prince Mohammad bin Salman, and that's where we start with a closer look at the prince or m b s some column before the kashogi affair. He was getting rave reviews in the western media as a young leader bent on reforming his old kingdom, a country wants a frayed of change. Now it seems changing all at one reform in Saudi Arabia country offering playing Hamad bin Salman is air to the Saudi throne, and he is architect of some of the major social, economic and political thirty. Two year old explained his progressive agenda in the altar, conservative kingdom, especially when it comes to France's making unpreced. And changes within Saudi Arabia? No, but crown prince's image as reformer is being questioned. Shoddy Hammeed is with the Brookings Institution. He says he never bought into the idea of the crown prince as a reformer. No, I didn't. And I think a lot of us who work on the Middle East were skeptical. We've seen the whole narrative of the young enlightened modernizer, and that hasn't worked out well in the past, and we westerners, we love this kind of idea, and we wanna find the good era of who can give women their rights and open up society. And I just wonder, how long will it take before we get past these allusions? So what is the background of Mohammed bin Salman the Saudi story specifically, and what suggested to you that NBS was not the reformer, some in the west hoped he would be the Yemen war has been going on since the Obama administration. So we've seen this disastrous war which has led to. One of the worst humanitarian catastrophes of our time and NBS in particular is associated with that war. He seen as the architect of the Yemen intervention, so that should have been a warning, but also the Saudis basically kidnapped the Lebanese Prime Minister last year and tried to force him to resign. And that's not even me being hyperbolic. So these are signs of recklessness. These are signs of a young leader who doesn't feel constrained and who doesn't know when to stop. It took the disappearance of Jamaica Shelby for a lot of people to take step back and look at this reality in Saudi Arabia, I'm curious to know shoddy what other events in recent months or the last year do you feel we should mention of this other side of MB s? So important side of MB NBS is the crackdown on dissent. What we saw in the pre m b s era was Puckett's of dissent. What's different about m b. ES is that even those small pockets have been rooted out in a very aggressive way, and that's what's led to this fairly recent phenomenon of some Saudi intellectuals either going into exile or thinking about exile, and kashogi was part of this because he feared for his safety and quite rightfully so. And we've seen, why is this kind of the DNA of Mohammed bin Salman is this who were getting to know. And we should mention also the rights of women to drive car in Saudi Arabia. But at the same time, a lot of women's activists in jail. So he hints at the arrival of social reform, but on political dissent. That's just not going to be tolerated. So he has opened up society in some ways. But as you mentioned, I are ni is that he's also cracked down on the very women rights activists who were calling for the changes that he himself made when it comes to the right of women to drive. There's a way to look at his reform side along. With his very strong authoritarian tendencies because he sees himself as the great modernizer of Saudi Arabian and because this is has personal stamp, he doesn't want anyone to come in the way of that, and he feels that he can only do that by pushing things through very aggressively..
