The Saudis have repeatedly denied that MBS was involved, but their previous denials were quickly debunked.
There are reports that the CIA has made the determination that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman gave the order to kill journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
As noted by CNBC, “The Washington Post, which first reported the CIA findings, said the U.S. intelligence agency has high confidence in its findings. Khashoggi was a resident of the United States from Saudi Arabia, and he was a columnist for the Washington Post.”
Saudi Arabia has denied the reports, calling them “false.”
However, their previous denials were rapidly debunked.
They had originally said Khashoggi left the embassy, after dressing up someone in his clothes.
Then, they said he died in a fight.
Then, they said he was killed by ‘rogue’ Saudi agents.
However, considering how ruthlessly controlled the Saudi regime is, it is highly unlikely that a high-profile critic of the House of Saud would be just randomly killed.
The CIA has not yet officially commented on the reports of their supposed findings.
Saudi Arabia has said 5 perpetrators of the killing will be executed, most likely unlucky scapegoats taking the fall.
And while Canadian leaders have expressed ‘concern’ and criticism of Saudi Arabia, they aren’t taking any real steps to distance ourselves from the country. We’re still selling them weapons, and we’re still buying their oil.
