If you're in Saudi, you might have this link blocked. 

Yes, according to US Intelligence in an extensive investigation, MBS is responsible for the Murder and dessicration of the corpse of Jamal Khashoggi. Will anything happen because of this ?

 Asked why the US had failed to punish the crown prince personally, Blinken told reporters at the State Department Friday that "what we've done by the actions that we've taken is really not to rupture the relationship, but to recalibrate it, to be more in line with our interests and our values. And I think that we have to understand as well that this is bigger than any one person."

In other words nothing. Showing that if you buy enough weapons from the US, things like 'laws' don't apply to you. Thoughts.

Also noteworthy that the US government does not intend to enact sanctions or in any way react.

The U.S. cannot go too hard on MBS or else they'll hand him on a plate to the Israelis and lose whatever influence they have left. That to my mind is the reality of the what is happening - a struggle between the U.S. and Israel as to whose vision for the ME wins.

Under Trump the U.S. had ceded policy to Jerusalem and Biden is tentatively trying to win some back. Had Trump still been in power, I think they may well have exonerated MBS completely.

Salam Brother!

It was very obvious that MBS ordered it. Yet America and the UN will stay quiet. Its really sad.

Salam Biden & his party are supporting other prince Ahmed Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud which Khashogi has been his supporter  & lobbyist  because  according  will of founder of Saudi kingship only Sudairi wing of royal family can became kings which MBS has broken  his  will so MBS has used Iron fist policy to stay in power but murder of Khashoggi & his failure in war with Yemen highly has weakend his power of Iron fist & his popularity  between royal family so U.S has started project of replacing him with using traditional policy of Saud family which is a more loyal person to U.S & also has not a negative  background  but at end all of it relates to final destiny of war with Yemen which non of three of KSa & U.S & Israel don't  want a shia government  in sought of Arabian peninsula  as potential  ally of Iran & a great treat  for Israel but in other hand although  of tremendous  amount of selling weapons  to KSA by U.S , it's cons has became more than it's profit for U.S so U.S is seeking for a more loyal replacement  instead of MBS but in other hand It's possible that MBS will become  more loyal ally of U.S & Israel due fear of replacement  with Ahmed Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud which at the end final destiny of war with Yemen is most crucial factor in this political  game but at end both of MBS & Abdulaziz are two sides of same coin.

This past week on conservative talk-radio, a commentator said this nearly the same way. The way the guest said it was, KSA buys so much weaponry from the US so-as-to keep the US engaged in the Mid-East on KSA's side.

I think someone already mentioned it on SC, but keep in mind that the same Khashoggi praised the regime for executing shaheed al Nimr. 

Not saying that this justifies what MBS did (for completely different purposes), but it's ironic how things turned out. 

 

It's verified:

Quote

 

Khashoggi went on to say that the execution of Sheikh Nimr was justified.

"It is a clear message to anybody who wants to overthrow the government," he stated. "Nimr openly called for overthrow of the system and allegiance to Wilayit al-Faqih, [Iran's Supreme Leader].
