CIA Declares Mastermind in Khashoggi Case, Priming Powderkeg for Middle East

The CIA knows whodunnit, but it’s not going to be an easy path to justice.

Jamal Khashoggi

The death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi weeks ago will likely affect world news for months to come, thanks to the intense scrutiny that the case is under.

Khashoggi, by all accounts, was ambushed at the Saudi consulate in Turkey by 15 men sent to kill him.  They came equipped with a bone saw – a gruesome indication of what was expected to occur upon the reporter’s visit.  Being an incredibly staunch opponent of the corrupt regime in Saudi Arabia, Khashoggi had undoubtedly made plenty of enemies during his time as a journalist.  This would have likely complicated any attempt to secure a motive or a suspect in the murder, but the CIA believes that they have cracked the case anyhow.

The CIA has concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul last month, contradicting the Saudi government’s claims that he was not involved.

The CIA’s assessment, in which officials have said they have high confidence, is the most definitive to date linking Mohammed to the operation and complicates the Trump administration’s efforts to preserve its relationship with a close ally.

In reaching its conclusions, the CIA examined multiple sources of intelligence, including a phone call that the prince’s brother Khalid bin Salman, the Saudi ambassador to the United States, had with Khashoggi, according to the people familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The United States has a complicated relationship with Saudi Arabia, due to the nation’s incredible berth of power in the oil industry.

While the US continues to exude the utmost principles of liberty and freedom to the global community, Saudi Arabia has been a worldwide leader in human rights abuses, including the unfathomable treatment of women as second class citizens.

Federal Judge Halts Biden’s 100-Day No Deportation Promise After Texas Lawsuit (Details)

A bit of good news, for now.

Something that cannot go overlooked about President Trump’s time in office is how he reshaped the federal judiciary. Everybody and their mother knows about Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Coney Barrett. Three Supreme Court seats in one term – even in two terms – is gigantic. The hundreds if not thousands of principled judges confirmed by the Senate under Trump’s watch, though, means America is ultimately going to be okay. From Fox News: A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked President Biden’s attempt to put a moratorium on deportations for 100 days. After Texas sued over the policy, the judge blocked Biden, via a temporary restraining order, from moving forward for 14 days. Texas’ lawsuit claims that the administration would be violating an agreement it has with the Department of Homeland Security – and would require at least 180 days’ notice, as well as consultation, prior to implementing changes in immigration policy. It is unclear whether those terms are enforceable, but similar agreements were struck with several other states under the former administration. Biden has also said he will not build another foot of border wall. You know, because nothing says “I want to keep Americans safe” like allowing anyone and everyone to walk into the country, freely. Shame on this “president.”
