The president was once again given the opportunity to condemn the man implicated in the murder of a Washington Post journalist. Once again, he refused. On Tuesday, Reuters interviewed President Donald Trump. And when the subject came around to Saudi Arabia, the president was sickeningly unwilling to disavow the Saudi crown prince's involvement in the killing of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. In fact, he voiced his full-throated support for both the prince and the nation:Trump refused to comment on whether Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was complicit in the murder, but he provided perhaps his most explicit show of support for the prince since Khashoggi’s death more than two months ago."He's the leader of Saudi Arabia. They’ve been a very good ally," Trump said in an interview in the Oval Office.Asked by Reuters if standing by the kingdom meant standing by the prince, known as MbS, Trump responded: "Well, at this moment, it certainly does."Some members of Saudi A...

Congolese President Joseph Kabila's regime is a nightmare for human rights. Rudy Giuliani met with lobbyists seeking to head off sanctions against him. On Tuesday, The Independent reported that President Donald Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, met with lobbyists from the Democratic Republic of the Congo for a reception at a D.C. hotel in July:An invitation for the reception billed it as an opportunity to learn about "the role Africa plays in gaining access to critical minerals, such as cobalt" and to discuss "the strategic relationship" between the United States and the nations of Africa.In fact, the reception was part of an aggressive $8 million lobbying and public relations campaign that used lobbyists with ties to the Trump administration to try to ease concerns about Congolese President Joseph Kabila, whose government was facing threats of additional sanctions from the Trump administration for human rights abuses and corruption.Joseph Kabila became leader of the Democrat...

The British press treat their Royal Family like a soap opera, complete with catfighting sisters-in-law, feuding brothers separating their lives, and an impatient heir to the throne, so it’s hard to fault the American tabloids for running with the soap opera theme – and doing it better. “William Seizes Throne – from murderer Charles!” screams the Globe cover. No, the Queen hasn’t died, and Prince William hasn’t launched a Palace coup to kill his father (Charles is branded a “murderer” by the tabloids for allegedly masterminding the death of Princess Diana.) William reportedly presented the Queen with "a damning new dossier of evidence” proving that Charles had ordered Diana killed. Considering all the trouble Diana was causing for the Royal Family after her split from Charles, you’d imagine the Queen might have welcomed such initiative on the part of her son. But no. The Globe claims that Her Majesty, believing the first piece of paper set in front of her, “order...

The New York Times obituary praised him for the “global coalition” he assembled to “eject Iraqi invaders from Kuwait, sending hundreds of thousands of troops in a triumphant military campaign.”  A Washington Post article on Bush 41’s legacy in the Middle East explains that the World War II fighter pilot “came to view Saddam as similar to Adolf Hitler, a madman who seized neighboring Kuwait and could plunge the world into conflict if he continu...

The CIA's findings reportedly contradict Trump's favored line. CIA Director Gina Haspel held a closed-door briefing today in Washington, DC, addressing several senators on the killing of Saudi journalist and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. And comments from Sen. Lindsey Graham, who attended the briefing, underscore the divide between some GOP senators and the Trump Administration on the murder of Khashoggi—who was killed inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey on October 2.The Saudi government has maintained that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, a.k.a. MBS, was killed during a kidnapping attempt and a rogue operation gone wrong—and that MBS himself did not order the killing. But according to reports, CIA intelligence implicates MBS and indicates that Khashoggi’s killers were likely acting on direct orders from the Saudi crown prince.Speaking to reporters after the briefing, Graham explained, “I went into the brief believing that it was v...

The Duchess of Sussex has held private talks with Michelle Obama after watching her speak on female empowerment, royal protocol and the challenges facing black women in the public eye. The Duchess, whose public work is expected to focus heavily on advocacy for women, watched Mrs Obama speak at the South Bank Centre in London on Monday night, joining an audience of 2,700 people to hear the former First Lady’s advice about life. Afterwards, the pair met privately backstage for a convivial conversation: the first time they have spoken directly despite their shared professional interests. The Duchess, who attended the event with staff rather than her husband the Duke, was spotted by members of the public during the evening, and is understood to have enjoyed a warm personal discussion with Mrs Obama afterwards.

The CIA believes Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman sent at least 11 messages to an advisor it alleges oversaw the team that killed Jamal Khashoggi in the hours surrounding the journalist’s death, according to a highly-classified assessment seen by The Wall Street Journal. Mr Khashoggi – a critic of the Saudi royal family – was killed in October shortly after entering Riyadh’s consulate in Istanbul. Saudi Arabia has faced an international outcry over the killing, which the country has blamed on a kidnap operation by a group of “rogue” operatives.

Kushner has been urging the State Department and the Defense Department to promote the $110 billion figure. With the CIA alleging that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, a.k.a. MBS, ordered the killing of Saudi journalist and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi—an accusation the Saudi royal family flatly denies—President Donald Trump issued an official statement last week in support of the U.S.’ alliance with Saudi Arabia. Trump, in his statement, adamantly rejected any type of sanctions against the Saudi government, asserting that it is unclear exactly what happened with Khashoggi and that the U.S.’ alliance with Saudi Arabia is too important economically and militarily to jeopardize. But according to ABC News, the $110 billion figure Trump has cited in relation to potential profits from arms sales to Saudi Arabia is seriously exaggerated—a figure that Jared Kusher, Trump’s son-in-law and a White House senior advisor, has been pushing aggressively.Kushner...

Asked in an interview by CNBC about a Reuters report that members of the royal family are discussing the possibility of changing the line of succession, but not while King Salman is alive, Adel al-Jubeir said: "These are outrageous comments that are being made and are totally unacceptable." In a statement Reuters said: “We stand by our story.” Reuters had quoted three sources close to the royal court as saying that amid international uproar over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, some members of Saudi Arabia's ruling family are agitating to prevent Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman from becoming king.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, let’s be grateful for the short memories of the tabloids, which gleefully forget what they’ve previously written the moment it’s inconvenient for them.

Yes, this is the same love child who was murdered by Prince Charles on the Greek isle of Crete in May 2016, according to a report the following month in -- where else? -- the Globe. Fortunately the demise of Diana’s mystery child has not curtailed her globe-trotting, and she turned up in the antipodes to warn Meghan: “Beware! Charles is a killer!” Though clearly not a very good one, if Diana’s daughter Sarah is still alive two years after Charles definitively killed her. The...

We fought two world wars in the 20th century to be sure the nations we are most closely aligned with wouldn't be overrun by dictatorships and by people who were hostile to America's values and interests and beliefs.

Trump still yearns to “lock up” Hillary Clinton, but turns a blind eye to Jamal Khashoggi killing. Last week, the Federalist Society grand poobah Leonard Leo, widely credited as the mastermind behind Trump's extremist court-packing scheme, got into a bit of spat with another high powered conservative legal luminary. That would be George Conway, the prominent Trump critic who is also the husband of Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway. Leo was upset because Conway had started a legal organization called Checks and Balances, which is dedicated to opposing Trump's abuse of presidential power and degradation of the rule of law.Leo said he found the whole concept outrageous. Just because the president spouts off day and night wondering why the Department of Justice isn't jailing his political rivals and demanding that its top officials pledge fealty to him as he imagines Joe McCarthy's lawyer (and Trump mentor) Roy Cohn would have done -- well, isn't an abuse of power unles...

The growing cycle of violence in Tripura, India, is a lesson to us all. These stories are hard to write about. There are too many of them, and there is too much to say about them.Tripura is a state in the northeast of India. It is a small state, with a population of 3 million (that’s 0.3 percent of India’s population). Ruled by a ruthless royal family in the past, the state became part of India in 1949 thanks in large part to a communist rebellion that continues to define the state’s culture. The Left Front—a communist alliance—governed the state from 1978 to 1988 and then again from 1993 to 2018. This year, thanks to an aggressive push from India’s prime minister Narendra Modi, the right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its local allies defeated the Left Front.Then, the tremor began.

But the Saudi royal family has vehemently denied any involvement in Khashoggi’s killing, and President Donald Trump reaffirmed his alliance with the Saudi government in an official statement released on November 20.In his statement, the president said, “We may never know all the facts surround the murder of Mr. Jamal Khashoggi.

The CIA has concluded Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to US media. Khashoggi, who was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last month, was reportedly given assurances that it was safe for him to attend the consulate in a phone call with the Saudi ambassador to the US, Khalid bin Salman, who is the brother of the Crown Prince. The Washington Post reported on Friday night that the US intelligence agency intercepted a call from the Crown Prince to his brother Khalid in which he instructed him to telephone Khashoggi. It is not clear if Khalid bin Salman knew that Khashoggi would be killed, but it is the clearest evidence yet that the order to murder the journalist came from the very highest levels of the Saudi government.  Saudi Arabia has repeatedly denied that the Crown Prince had any involvement in the death of Khashoggi, who had been a fierce critic of Mohammed bin Salman.  Saudi Crown Prince...

Despite mounting evidence to the contrary, Donald Trump's administration appears poised to accept the Saudi claim that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman did not have a hand in Jamal Khashoggi's murder. In Saudi Arabia, prosecutors have announced that they are seeking the death penalty for five men allegedly involved in the October 2 murder of Saudi journalist and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi—who was killed inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. But Turkish government officials are deeply suspicious of the prosecution, and the New York Times is reporting that an audio recording has surfaced that may link Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, a.k.a.

A complex man of contradictions, journalist Jamal Khashoggi went from being a Saudi royal family insider to an outspoken critic of the ultra-conservative kingdom's government, and was ultimately killed inside its consulate in Istanbul. In his final column for The Washington Post, Khashoggi perhaps presciently pleaded for greater freedom of expression in the Middle East. "The Arab world is facing its own version of an Iron Curtain, imposed not by external actors but through domestic forces vying for power," he wrote.

Sabah, a daily newspaper headquartered in Istanbul, published images on Tuesday purported to be airport X-ray scans of the team's bags as they left Istanbul for Riyadh on October 2, the day of Mr Khashoggi’s murder.  A number of tools and pieces of equipment can be seen, including walkie-talkies, a signal jammer and a pair of scissors.  The bags were loaded onto two private jets but police were not able to open them due to diplomatic immunity, according to the report. The paper, which is close to Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), is one of a number of outlets that has published a steady stream of leaks providing lurid details of Khashoggi’s death, a tactic seemingly designed to keep pressure on Riyadh and its allies.
