Thursday, October 25, 2018

On the next Charlotte Talks, the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi leaves many questions unanswered including those surrounding the US relationship with Saudi Arabia. We hear from a panel of experts on this issue. 

Journalist Jamal Khashoggi was openly critical of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.  Earlier this month he may have paid the price for that when he was allegedly murdered in the Saudi consulate in Turkey. 

The explanations offered by Saudi Arabia for what happened continuously changed  to the point where President Trump called it “the worst cover-up in history.”  We talk about the implications of the murder and our ties to Saudi Arabia.
