U.S. Takes Diplomatic Action Against Saudi Fall Guys
The U.S. has taken diplomatic action against 21 Saudi officials believed connected with the killing of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The 21 were identified by the Saudi government as the "investigation" by Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman, who actually ordered the killing of Khashoggi, continues.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the Saudi officials singled out for U.S. action included “those in the intelligence services, the royal court, the foreign ministry, and other Saudi ministries,” though he didn’t identify any by name. They will be subject to visa revocations and special screening procedures meant to keep them out of the U.S., reports The Wall Street Journal.
