The Khashoggi Murder: Reasons and Repercussions

The murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi exceeds other political assassinations not only through its brazenness, but also in the wealth of collected evidence.  Despite receiving mainstream media attention, the reasons for the Khashoggi killing are often poorly described and the repercussion are rarely discussed.

WindRock interviews Eric Margolis, award-winning syndicated columnist and war correspondent.  Mr. Margolis discusses:

  • Why the Turks are slowly releasing evidence;
  • How this may affect the viability of Saudi Arabia’s current de facto ruler, the crown prince;
  • Why Saudi Arabia’s regime appears to receive unconditional support from the U.S.;
  • What is the likelihood of a future U.S.-Saudi war with Iran.
