BS is so narcissistic he orders the kidnapping, torture, and murder of people who aren’t even serious dissidents, much less an actionable threat. He’s digging his own grave. -KB
American officials who have read the classified intelligence reports related to Saudi crown prince say Mohammed bin Salman authorized a secret campaign to silence dissidents. The officials say the campaign started more than a year before the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and it included kidnapping and torture of Saudi citizens. According to the officials, at least a dozen clandestine missions were carried out by members of the same team that killed Khashoggi in Istanbul in last year. The details come from classified intelligence assessments about the Saudi campaign and from Saudis with direct knowledge of some of the operations. Last November, the US Central Intelligence Agency concluded that bin Salman had ordered Khashoggi’s killing. Riyadh denies the prince’s involvement.
