Khashoggi’s Editor Slams Warmth Shown to MBS at G20: ‘Bros Before Murdered Journos’

‘The idea that that was the only image of warmth that came for Mohammad bin Salman after the G20, it puts him squarely in the club of global thugs, to be honest’

EXCERPT:

ATTIAH: "I mean, I think I tweeted, you know, again for me sometimes I try to laugh to keep from crying. It just sends a message of, look, bros before murdered journos. The idea that that was the only image of warmth that came from Mohammed bin Salman after the G20, it just puts him squarely in the club of global thugs, to be honest. At the end of the day, it’s chilling. It’s chilling. These are regimes that get away with trying to silence journalists with brutality. It’s a chilling message that all of a sudden they’re happy to be in the club with one another. I can’t imagine that Jamal would have ever thought — he wrote last year that Mohammed bin Salman actually in fact is acting like Putin. He compared him to Putin at the same time last year. So to see this play out is chilling for me on so many levels."
