Khashoggi’s Editor: Trump Made U.S. Look Like ‘Servants’ to Regime That Butchers Washington Post Journalists

‘It gives people like Mohammad bin Salman a green light to erase and silence anybody that they want’

RUSH EXCERPT:

ATTIAH: “We all deserve better. Jamal deserved better. I think it was just — for all of the statements about the U.S.-Saudi relationship being some sort of special relationship, so special that we need to sacrifice human life in order to save it. There is no mention of concessions or pushing Saudi Arabia to change its ways. It made us, Trump look like we’re servants to this regime that would butcher Washington Post journalists. Chris, it puts all of us, journalists, Saudi critics, anybody who dares to have an opinion against an authoritarian government around the world, it puts us in more danger. It gives people like Mohammad bin Salman a green light to erase and silence anybody that they want, wherever they might be, for whatever reason.”
