Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance could complicate the financial links between the US and the Saudis who have already invested hundreds of billions of dollars in the US.  Rand Paul has used this event to try to stop the US sale of $110 billion in weapons to the Saudis, but Trump has defended the sale.  US officials, top international banks and European finance ministers have canceled plans to attend an economic conference in Saudi Arabia next week.

The media has a sudden interest in Saudi Arabia and the alleged murder, although it has ignored the country for many years, including its involvement in 9/11, Saudi funding of ISIS in Syria, and the  disastrous war against Yemen initiated by Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), who received an award from the CIA.  The media frenzy over journalist Khashoggi points to an underlying agenda as it has ignored the steady stream of murdered journalists in Mexico.
