US Trump administration supports Saudi regime, murder or no murder

This 4 November 2018 video from the USA says about itself:

🇺🇸🇸🇦 Khashoggi murder will not change US-Saudi relations says Pompeo | Breaking News

Mike Pompeo said the core relationship of cooperation between the United States and Saudi Arabia, which dates back to the 1940s, would remain unchanged, when he was questioned by reporters about US Saudi relations in light of the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.

However, the message was mixed as Pompeo also demanded justice for the journalist’s murder and that his killers be punished.

In his comments, Pompeo mentioned Saudi Arabia was a counterbalance to Iranian influence in the Middle East, even as US sanctions are set to be reimposed on Iran on Monday after the US unilaterally abandoned the 2015 nuclear agreement last May.

Just a few hours later, Khashoggi’s sons addressed the media, saying they wanted the return of their father’s body and to bury him in Saudi Arabia. Al Jazeera’s Rob Reynolds reports from Washington, DC.

A Republican lawmaker in Washington state distributed a document describing how a “Holy Army” should kill people who flout biblical law.
