Will the U.S. punish Mohammed Bin Salman? | Inside Story


It’s what many have suspected ever since Jamal Khashoggi disappeared in Istanbul six weeks ago.
The Washington Post says the CIA has concluded that the Saudi Crown Prince DID give the order to kill the Saudi journalist who’d criticised Mohammed bin Salman.
The American spy agency isn’t commenting on the reports.
And the Saudi embassy in Washington says the CIA assessment is false.
If not, the CIA finding is the first direct confirmation of the crown prince’s involvement after Turkey said the order to kill came from the highest level in the kingdom.
Where does the finding leave Saudi US relations?
Where does it leave the fate of Mohamed Bin Salman?
