Media Praise for Saudi Crown Prince Turns to Fury After Jamal Khashoggi’s Disappearance

16 October 2018

Pundits are outraged over the disappearance and likely execution of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who has not been seen since entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

But where was the outrage over the last three years as the Saudis obliterated Yemen and created the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, according to the EU and U.N.

The atrocious human rights record of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, known by his initials MBS, has not been a secret. But over the last year, media pundits were heaping praise on MBS as he toured the globe to promote his so-called reform movement and to attract international investors.

The Saudis’ problematic record on human rights has been evident for a while. Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance is not an aberration. But MBS’s brutality has now impacted a person that D.C. insiders and journalists all know, so they’re finally admitting what critics of MBS have warned about for years.

Riyadh ‘preparing statement admitting Khashoggi killed in consulate’

PRESSURE was mounting on Saudi Arabia today after it was reported that Riyadh was preparing a statement admitting that dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed in its Istanbul consulate last week.

It would see the despotic Gulf state backtrack on previous claims that the Washington Post columnist had left the building alive after he went to obtain routine papers for his forthcoming marriage.

US President Donald Trump appeared to back claims made by the Saudi king that “rogue killers” were involved in a botched interrogation of Mr Khashoggi.

“It wasn’t like there was a question in [King Salman’s] mind. The denial was very strong”, he told reporters at the White House on Monday.

Yesterday Republican Senator Lindsey Graham appeared to shift the blame onto Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, branding him a “wrecking ball” and accusing him of ordering the murder.

“There is difference between a country and an individual. The MBS figure is, to me, is toxic. He can never be a world leader on the world stage”, he said, urging sanctions be imposed.

He insisted that Saudi Arabia was “a good ally” but accused the crown prince of “tainting” the country.
