Biden and justice for Khashoggi- What else did we expect?

So much happened during the chaos of the Trump years, it’s almost

forgivable to have forgotten the brutal murder of Jamal Khashoggi

at the direction of the Saudi government. For “Saudi government”,

make that the whim of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS).

Of course, Trump was a despot-loving democracy-hating admirer of

strong-men such as MBS. Add to that how Saudi Arabia has an

insatiable appetite for American arms, and the Pentagon has an

insatiable appetite for Saudi Arabian money, and the chances of

Khashoggi’s murderers being named, shamed and brought to justice,

including MBS by proxy, were slim to non-existent.

Along comes the forty-sixth president and wasn’t everything

supposed to get a whole lot better? Like milk and honey better?
