He did, and Biden released the CIA report accusing him of such.
What action should he take?
One of today’s biggest stories is that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence today released its assessment of the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in October 2018 at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. Khashoggi was a Saudi Arabian journalist whose criticism of his country’s government had driven him into exile in the U.S., where he worked for the Washington Post. The DNI placed blame for the murder on Saudi Arabia’s current crown prince, Muhammad bin Salman, whose name is often abbreviated as MBS.
By law, the Trump administration was supposed to release the intelligence community’s assessment of the killing, but it refused. In her confirmation hearings, Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines promised she would do so. The report was delayed until President Biden could speak to King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, the king of Saudi Arabia. MBS is the king’s son and is the third crown prince Salman has named since becoming king in 2015. Biden has made it a point to refuse to communicate with MBS, despite the Trump administration’s willingness to treat him as the country’s de facto ruler. Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner apparently considered MBS a friend. Biden will speak only with the king.
The readout of the conversation said Biden spoke with the king “to address the longstanding partnership between the United States and Saudi Arabia.” They discussed ending the war in Yemen, “and affirmed the importance the United States places on universal human rights and the rule of law.” Earlier this month, Biden ended U.S. support for Saudi Arabia’s military engagement in Yemen, a fight launched by MBS, which has led to a humanitarian crisis there. The Trump administration’s huge arms sales to Saudi Arabia, including top-line F-35 fighters, were widely seen as a way to support the Saudi war effort; Biden has frozen the sales for review.
Now he has added sanctions to the former deputy Saudi intelligence chief and to the Saudi Royal Guard’s rapid intervention force, whose members have been identified as those behind the murder. Their assets in the U.S. are frozen, and they cannot deal with Americans. The U.S. also restricted the visas of 76 Saudi citizens and some of their family members.
You’ve said you’re disappointed with the action Biden has taken yet can’t say what action he should take.
Pointing that out somehow makes me an ass.
What you need to realise is that the ME is totally different to what you’re used to. They still talk about the crusades as if it were recent history.
There are limits on what action Biden can take that would yield positive results.
I think his approach is the right one, anything else would be counterproductive.
The reason I said you're an ass is because you automatically take a condescending, sneering tone in every discussion, and it's offensive.
nuke is a real fossil fuel like coal, its dirty,
over regulation is required to keep it safe,
siting criteria are all fucked up and politically driven (Over reg (Dem) to NO reg-(GOP).
Its a stupid fuel option for more than an interim "Bridge"
We are bathed with over 50000 X our projected energy use (Per Acre) jut solar alone.
Let the market decide.
Seems you do the same thing with nuke that you blame "progressives" over fosil
