Brennan: ‘No Doubt in My Mind’ the Saudi Crown Prince Authorized Khashoggi Killing
KOTB: "You know more about Saudi Arabia than almost anyone. Is there any doubt in your mind that Saudi operatives carried this out? And is there any doubt in your mind that the crown prince knew about this and maybe even authorized this?"
BRENNAN: "No and no, there’s no doubt in my mind. Mohammad bin Salman is an extraordinarily powerful individual, who wields full power in Saudi Arabia. And something like this, going after a U.S. resident, a journalist for the 'Washington Post', in a Saudi diplomatic mission abroad, would require his personal authorization in my estimation."
