Biden Admits He Won’t Sanction MbS Simply Because Saudis Remain “Our Allies”

Support SouthFront

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

The White House has issued a belated response – or ultimately a weak attempt at damage control – amid growing bipartisan outrage that despite his prior “tough” talk on the campaign trail to “hold the Saudis to account”, crown prince Mohammed bin Salman is getting off scot-free.

“The Biden administration defended its decision not to sanction Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman personally for his role in the death of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, as the White House confirmed no more actions against the kingdom are imminent,” Stars & Stripes reports Sunday. This means that not so much as suspension of weapons sales are on the table, apparently.

Biden Admits He Won't Sanction MbS Simply Because Saudis Remain "Our Allies"

This despite the newly declassified intelligence assessment identifying MbS as “approving” the operation to kill or capture the Washington Post journalist.

Biden’s answer as to why the US is stopping short at sanctioning dozens of lower-level Saudi officials (and not MbS) that the newly declassified intelligence assessment identified as orchestrating Jamal Khashoggi’s Oct.2018 murder appears to simply be that the Saudis are “our allies”:

“The United States has not historically sanctioned the leaders of countries where we have diplomatic relations or even some where we don’t have diplomatic relations,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on “Fox News Sunday.” “Behind the scenes there are a range of diplomatic conversations.”

A White House statement indicated that no further actions will be taken against Riyadh (other than slapping up to 76 officials with ‘travel restrictions’):

“The recalibration of relations with Saudi Arabia began on January 20th and it’s ongoing,” the White House said in a statement. “The Administration took a wide range of new actions on Friday. The President is referring to the fact that on Monday, the State Department will provide more details and elaborate on those announcements, not new announcements.”

Certainly the Saudis now have little to worry about given the White House is meekly talking “recalibration of relations” in the wake of US intelligence identifying MbS as having ordered the brutal killing and dismemberment.

So it took no time at all for things to return to “business of usual” in terms of Washington relations with the Saudi regime. The Saudi prince literally got away with murder… and now has a perpetual “get out of jail free card” simply because he’s a White House “ally”. Ultimately this of course comes as no surprise at all.

Of course, so damn predictable. Saudi Arabia means money to the US, and money always gets first priority. Protectors of the global ‘rules based order’ my ass….

Let’s talk about the extrajudicial killing of . . . Muammar Gaddafi . . . for example . . . in comparison… Saudi Arabia is a monarchy, and these types of killings are perfectly legal in a monarchy where the king is the ultimate judge, just ask the British monarchy, they did it for centuries.

However, most of NATO are not monarchies, yet they are graced with privilege to carry out such operations, while those lowly barbaric Saudis are held to a more stringent standard? Khashoggi committed treason against his king, he was a Saudi subject.

Just because Khashoggi worked for the Washington Post, it gives him no special privilege on Saudi Arabian soil.

Just Me

US deep state is on Saudi payroll. Demented Biden and his son has made millions of the Saudis, so do you think they will sanction the corrupt hand that feeds them?

You’re a pathetic idiot. Khashoggi deserved what he got.

Khashoggi committed treason against his king, he was a Saudi subject, allegedly killed on Saudi soil at their consulate . . . in Turkey . . . who is also a member of the North Atlantic Terrorist Organization. (The Turkish caliphate before it was no stranger to sex slaves and mass executions.)

mohammed bin salman is implicated in the murder of kashoggi and the disunited states of insufferable fools doesn’t strike him with a plethora of sanctions under the pretext that there is diplomatic relations between the two countries. a bit weak and more than likely that the saudis buy a lot of expensive weapons and most important of all, the jared kushner detente between the jews in palestine and the goat-shaggers in riyadh, which the jews in the disunited states of insufferable fools would be most displeased with if it was allowed to fall and thus the detente a la jewry is too important and a scheming murdering clown prince is allowed to remain just that, a smiling clown prince.

Clarence Spangle

Khashoggi deserved what he got.

He was an a$$hole and used to be a spokesman for the al-saud pimps. Then they fell apart and rest is a headchopping history.

Why on earth would Joe Zombie give up his 10%, wouldn’t that be him?

Lost Empire

Senile Joe won’t sanction criminal saudi prince because SA is an America’s ally. As usual fascist America don’t punish criminals that are her ally, especially if they spend miliard of dollars buying US weapons
