"There is not a smoking gun, there’s a smoking saw."

Said Lindsey Graham, quoted in "Saudi Prince ‘Complicit’ in Khashoggi’s Murder, Senators Say After C.I.A. Briefing" (NYT).

Also: "Somebody should be punished, but the question is: 'How do you separate the Saudi crown prince from the nation itself?'" — Senator Richard C. Shelby.

As I have said before, the argument for downgrading the US-Saudi relationship existed long before l'affaire Khashoggi. It is merely the latest example of MBS' impetuousness and incompetence.

I imagine Alabama is begging for qatari cash, this is what that's about.

Hagar said...

I accept that Khashoggi died somewhat as described, but how that came to happen is another thing. Perhaps I am going all John LeCarre on this thing, but this story is all too improbably neat and convenient for the powers peddling it.

narciso said...

Yes they wanted him back like galindez, (see trujillo) but it got out of hand.

That's why they had the Tyrion sized general heading the team.

How do you separate the Saudi crown prince from the nation itself?

I’m usually good at these riddles, but...’with a saw’ is the trick answer, but the correct one isn’t obvious to me.

tim in vermont said...

Drag Obama before the dock for ordering drone murders first. Let the nation without sin cast the first stone, which is another way of saying that we should mind our own business. This guy was a pal of bin Laden. The Saudis know shit about their own that we will never learn. None of our business.

J. Farmer said...

Somebody should be punished, but the question is: 'How do you separate the Saudi crown prince from the nation itself?

Ending all support and assistance for the war on Yemen and cancelling arms sales would be good first steps.

We are not the World Police and the CIA has no business holding press conferences and disclosing covertly-gathered information. We never arrested the Brits that ordered the Archduke Ferdinand assassination, either.

The "pal of bin Laden" talking point is stale and meaningless. Ad for the "none of our business" line, that would be true if Saudi Arabia was not a deeply enmeshed client state of the US.

Browndog said...

This is so interesting-

The media would have you believe this was an American journalist murdered by a regime friendly to Trump....like something Putin would do.

He was not a journalist, and he didn't even have a work permit (green card). Real American journalists are murdered overseas all the time, and our media doesn't bat an eye.

So what gives?

You have a Saudi muslim brotherhood operative conspiring against the Crown Prince, and was summarily neutralized in Turkey. I can't believe this story had legs in the first place, let alone still.

narciso said...

This iteration of the Yemen war, is not new as I pointed out from effendi obaid, khashoggis colleague family tree.

Now the parallel is more like Fabian ver and aquino.

I agree, Farmer. Wasn't it amazing how deftly the Saudis' complicity in 9/11 was swept under the rug? This current position is one of the few instances where I've had to disagree with Trump. But the murder of a 'journalist' should not be the main reason for dissolving ties with SA and we should not be providing military support for their involvement in Yemen.

SIS (MI6) agents were sent to stoke up Bosnian Serb resentment to the annexation of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1908, with the specific goal of killing the archduke during his visit to Sarajevo. Gavrilo Princip talked about the British men in the bar (in the week prior to the visit) firing the crowd up and buying drinks and even supplying pistols and bomb-making instructions. The CIA would have held a press conference, if they had existed at the time.

@narciso:

I agree that support for the war on Yemen was a sop to Saudi Arabia over the JCPOA, but why would Obama feel compelled to do this? Why did he believe he needed to reassure the Saudis? Also, Obama promptly supported and provided arms to the Egyptian military dictator. And by "clusterfuck," do you mean a very effective non-proliferation agreement that blocked Iran's access to a nuclear weapon?

J. Farmer said...

MBS was defense minister at the time and deputy crown prince. Salman of course has been King over the course of both administrations.

So you're argument is that the Deep State supported Saudi Arabia so long as bin Nayef was Crown Prince but not MBS? Why?

tim in vermont said...

The "pal of bin Laden" talking point is stale and meaningless.

Why? Because after 9-11 he claimed that he had tried to talk sense to bin Laden? After 9-11, not before. You don’t know what transpired and neither do I. There is no doubt that he traveled to meet bin Laden, and all we have on the meeting is what was reported to us by him after 9-11...

We can’t get involved as the world cop every time some government does a “drone strike” on one of their citizens on their soil. And we can’t take either the CIA’s or the Turks’ word on anything. Best policy? None of our business. Caring about shit like this is what got us into the Iraq war, we made a democratic decision, which Obama ignored in Syria, that we were no longer going to care about shit like this that happens in other countries, and Trump is respecting that mandate, so clearly expressed by the American people in 2006.

tim in vermont said...

Even the legitimate president of the United States, Donald J Trump can’t trust the CIA since they have become openly partisan political operatives.

The Washington Post hates Donald Trump with a passion, so we need to sever our ties to the Saudis. Got it.

I certainly agree that we should not "get involved as the world cop." Trump took the decision to maintain US troops in Syria indefinitely and has continued to double down in Afghanistan and in US support for Yemen. How is this "respecting that mandate?"

J. Farmer,

I initially heard the story of the Brits being behind the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand from a Brit WWII Vet who was a substitute teacher at my high school in the 1960s. [He came to the US after his father died.] His father, a WWI Vet who was disabled in combat was supposedly in a position to know. Both felt that the million British deaths in WWI (twice their WWII losses) was the greatest betrayal by a government in history. The plan was to force Germany to start a short war that would result in a large number of German casualties that would cause a regime change and get Germany to abandon their African colonies that stood in the way of a transcontinental railway between Egypt and South Africa--among other things. Britain and France would deliver the damage because the Maginot Line would never be breached. I accepted this as common knowledge since then, and saw similar charges in print over the years. Of course, the British Gov't has not and never will confirm the story. I'm sure a Google search will yield something on the internet--something along the lines of "Brits behind the assassination of." You can do that on your own.

Saudi Arabia has cooperated strategically with Israel for a number of years. There remains no official diplomatic relations between the countries. Saudi Arabia's relationship with Israel is out of shared anti-Iran orientation. It has little to nothing to do with being "pro-Israel."

A distinction without a difference. SA can't formally have diplomatic relations with Israel without provoking the crazies there or in the vicinity. But in practical terms it's the same thing, like our alliance with the USSR vs the Axis Powers.

Chuck said...

All that I want, is to drill down on the undisputed statements of Trump, Pompeo, Mattis, Graham, and especially the CIA as represented by the Director in front of the Senate (to which we were not privy, but which is being represented to us by a bipartisan group Senators).

In this regard, Graham counts a lot. And what he alluded to was noteworthy; that no sensible observer would look at all of the intel and fail to conclude that the Crown Prince orchestrated the assassination.

So why then would Pompeo, Mattis and Bolton stake their own credibility on ridiculous word games about there being no definite proof of orders from the crown prince? Senator Graham alluded to their being “good soldiers.” I think that description is too simplistic. And expect that when history is completed and all the biographies are written, we may well find out that it was not mere job preservation or loyalty to a President at whose pleasure the served, but instead that it was the Secretaries’ deep concern that if they did not adequately parrot Trump’s ridiculous (per the world intel, via Graham and others), that Trump would fire them, leaving the nation and the world yet more exposed to the personal danger of Trump.


Big Mike said...

I have spent my entire adult life being harangued about the need to “respect cultural differences.” Saudi Arabia is a monarchy of a sort that we here in the West have not seen since the 18th century or earlier. People here in the US tolerate their culture when women are flogged for the crime of having been raped, or are publicly beaten for a part of their ankle showing as they walk along the road (women have only recently been allowed to drive). Killing someone who wants to kill the king is merely another aspect of their culture.

Trump is 100% right on this. Why give up $Billions, because some goofs want to all moralistic. And people like Lindsey can't even explain why he's upset at Saudi Arabia and NOT upset a Cuba or China (who are worse on Human Rights).

That is precisely my point. The Saudi-Israel relationship is a result of Saudi self-interested security concerns. It is not a result of or concession to US support. And so it makes no sense in raising it as justification for US support. If the US halted arms sales and withdrew all support for the Yemen war tomorrow, it would not have significant ramifications in the Saudi-Israel relationship, because both countries would continue to have divergent self-interested security needs. Similar, as you say, to the USSR alliance against the Germans.

The second does not follow from the first. Even if the Khashoggi murder is meaningless, it does not mean that Trump's Saudi Arabia policy is correct. What his policy amounts to us is the US bending over backwards for a client state in order to obtain behavior from that state that hurts our security interests. Trump is not alone in this. He has merely doubled down on the Obama policy (e.g. arms sales and support for the war on Yemen).

Also, by pretty much any objective measure, Cuba and China are freer and more open societies than Saudi Arabia.

journalist per OED: "A person who writes for newspapers, magazines, or news websites or prepares news to be broadcast."

Most of Khashoggi's career was in print and broadcast news. What relationship that news had to state organs is a separate question. The fact is that by any objective understanding of the word, Khashoggi was a journalist.

Also, American journalists are not "murdered overseas all the time." It's a relatively rare occurrence.

As for "playing the ball where it lies," that is a complete cop out. Nothing is stopping him from removing troops from Afghanistan or Syria. Based on that notion, no president ever could. As for "not starting new wars," that is arguable. He has changed the justification for US presence in Syria and for US support for Saudi Arabia. Both are "new wars" in terms of expressed US aims and military goals. As for Hillary, I didn't vote for her.

But it seems that miss lindsey just has emotional reactions. He doesn't like the Saudi's and likes the Cubans and Chinese. Or maybe he just has Random reactions to things and says crap off the top of his head.

Iraq was never "abandoned." Troops were withdrawn on a timetable that had been negotiated between the Bush administration and the Iraqi government. The US sought to keep US troops in Iraq longer, but the Iraqis would not agree to immunize US troops against Iraqi prosecution. There had been several high-profile cases of individual US troops committing crimes against Iraqi citizens, and this had become a potent political issue inside of Iraq.

Also, I think the notion that a few thousand residual troops could hold Iraq together is fanciful. A civil war and ethnic cleansing were occurring in Iraq when he had tens of thousands of troops in the country. Also, given that the rise of ISIS began with the Syrian Civil War, a contingent of troops in Iraq would not have had much impact on that. The problem with Iraq is that the Sunni-majority west is essentially cut out of government due to their minority status. Promises to fold members of the Anbar Awakening into the security services were not kept, etc.

Afghanistan would remain what it has been for a decades. A failed state with little central control amid various tribal factions.
