Murder in the first degree.
I’m not sure the world paid enough attention to this outrageous act by the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman.
We definitely did not in America, partly because Trump and his family were/are close to MBS. The Crown Prince “invested” 2 BILLION dollars in a new investment fund run by Jared Kushner, over-ruling his own nation’s Public Investment Fund’s financial experts advice.
Jared Kushner will be paid at least $25 million every year in management fees. Nice work if you can get it.
Now, of course, Biden will meet MBS in Saudi Arabia later this week, because of the price of oil and how that might affect his bid for re-election in 2024.
America has always coddled the Saudis because of our thirst for oil (think 9/11) and our demands that it be cheap, even as the world slips further into climate crisis every day: floods, drought, stronger storms, melting ice caps and rising seas.
This was cold blooded murder in the first degree, planned and executed at the orders of the Crown Prince.
Just like Putin, MBS feels he’s above the law and can kill anyone who disagrees with him, even one of the world’s most famous journalists.
