Just watched the Axios interview with the Uber CEO and laughed out loud in the newsroom when he compared the murder and dismemberment of Jamal Khashoggi to self-driving car mistakes because the alternative would've been a depressive spiral
A lawsuit implicating NSO Group, an Israeli spyware company, in the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi is one of many cases targeting firms that sell spyware to states with poor human rights records. @MORGANMEAKER reports:
Trump took Vladimir Putin at his word on Russian election interference.
He took MBS at his word over the brutal murder of Jamal Khashoggi.
And today in Hanoi he took Kim Jong Un at his word over the death of Otto Warmbier.
The President’s praise for MBS, the man who US intel says ordered or authorized the heinous murder of a WaPo columnist & Saudi dissident, sends the wrong message to the world. It’s past time for Congress & the administration to impose sanctions for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.
Our GREAT MILITARY has delivered justice for the heroes lost and wounded in the cowardly attack on the USS Cole. We have just killed the leader of that attack, Jamal al-Badawi. Our work against al Qaeda continues. We will never stop in our fight against Radical Islamic Terrorism!
Seven months ago, Jamal Khashoggi walked into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul for marriage papers while his fiancee waited outside. He was brutally murdered & dismembered by Saudi agents & never seen again. Today is #WorldPressFreedomDay We will continue to cover this story.
INTERESTING TIMING: A member of the Saudi Royal Air Force who was one of the 15 Saudis allegedly involved in the killing of JAMAL KHASHOGGI has died in a car accident in Riyadh, according to a Turkish media report.
