Biden fails to expand Sanctions against Saudi death squad while allowing them to continue operating inside the United States
This week's political theater seemed very dramatic to it's participants. Biden pretended to read the report on the well known and recorded dismemberment murder of Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi ex-patriot journalist and regime critic inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on 2 October 2018. The released report was compiled by the CIA in 2018 for then-President Trump who and named 17 individuals as having participated in the murder. 13 of these were sanctioned by the US Treasury Department last week in what is widely seen as a token human rights gesture by the Biden Administration.
