Saudis Stick With Trump Despite Sellout of Syrian Kurds

Far From Accountability a Year After the Murder of Jamal Khashoggi

“Sadly, one year later we are far from accountability for the grisly murder of Jamal inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman says he takes “full responsibility” for the “heinous crime” but insists he neither ordered it nor was aware of it beforehand.
