The 24/7 hullaballoo over Khashoggi being most likely assassinated by Saudi Arabian security forces is symptomatic of everything that’s wrong with the current political situation, and it’s not just Donald Trump, not just the Republicans. 6500+ civilians have been killed in Yemen, mostly from U.S. weapons sold to the Saudis. Our own Green Berets are clocking up a death toll on the ground there. 8.4 million people are starving. But the media is obsessed with the fate of one guy. Sure, maybe he was a good guy. A journalist. A bit of a celebrity. It might not have been the smartest thing for him to show up at the Saudi consulate in Turkey. Perhaps he underestimated his enemy. Don’t get me wrong. We should find out what happened and hold the Saudi’s accountable. But then we should cut off all military aid to Saudi Arabia in order to stop its vicious intervention in the Yemeni war. I think it’s fair to say our outrage is misplaced.
