Tuesday on MSNBC, network host Ali Velshi said President Donald Trump’s statement standing by Saudi Arabia despite allegations Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was responsible for the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi sounded like it was “written by a 7-year-old.” Velshi said, “First of all, it’s written like it’s written by a 7-year-old.” He continued, “It starts with America first with an exclamation mark…and then it talks about Iran. So there’s this distraction going on. As long as I can tell you bad things about Iran, then Saudi Arabia, which is an enemy of our enemy, must by definition be a friend.” He added, “And Mike Pompeo and the president keep on talking about America’s interests. It’s just disingenuous. Saudi Arabia needs America much more than America needs Saudi Arabia. We’ve actually got a lot less going on with the Saudis than the president quotes. As you said, the Saudis can’t rush aro...

Trump's reaction could inspire more attacks on the free press. President Donald Trump is continuing to back the Saudi regime, despite overwhelming evidence that its most powerful leader, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, is directly implicated in the assassination of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.In a farcical statement about the killing — strewn with superfluous exclamation points — the president lashed out at Iran and repeated bogus Saudi talking points about Khashoggi being an "enemy of the state" and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood."Our intelligence agencies continue to assess all information, but it could very well be that the Crown Prince had knowledge of this tragic event – maybe he did and maybe he didn’t!" the statement said. On the contrary, reports suggest that the CIA is convinced that the crown prince ordered the killing himself. David Laufman, a former top counterintelligence official in the Justice Department, condemned Trump's cowardly...

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday it was "shameful" that U.S. President Donald Trump had pledged support for Saudi Arabia despite the murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi in its consulate. Trump had issued a statement that began: "The world is a very dangerous place! "The country of Iran, as an example, is responsible for a bloody proxy war against Saudi Arabia in Yemen, trying to destabilize Iraq’s fragile attempt at democracy, supporting the terror group Hezbollah in Lebanon, propping up dictator Bashar Assad in Syria (who has killed millions of his own citizens), and much more." Trump went on to vow to stay a "steadfast partner" of Riyadh despite saying that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman may have known about the plan to murder Khashoggi in Istanbul.

"The world is a very dangerous place!" Trump wrote. Members of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), based on intelligence, have alleged that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, a.k.a. MBS, directly ordered a hit squad to kill Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey on October 2. 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. In any case, our relationship is with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. They have been a great ally in our fight against Iran. The United States plans to remain a steadfast partner of Saudi Arabia to ensure the interests of our country, Israel and all other partners in the region.”Saudi Arabia’s position as an oil-producing nat...
