Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman's Latest Ballsy Counter Attack Against the Charge That He Ordered the Killing of Jamal Khashoggi

The PR flunky who came up with this defense for MbS deserves a bonus from MbS.

From the Financial Times:
The Saudis have crafted a message that is now spreading, online and in interviews, through officials and loyalists.
The narrative holds up Saudi Arabia as a “beacon” of stability in the face of an expansionist Iran. It draws parallels between the Khashoggi case and the Abu Ghraib scandal, the abuse of Iraqi detainees in a prison by American officers. Soldiers were convicted but no senior government official was implicated.
