Saudi Arabia: Khashoggi Murder Was “Premeditated”, Arms Sales Questioned

Anya Parampil reports on Saudi Arabia’s announcement that writer Jamal Khashoggi’s murder was in fact premeditated. She then breaks down how Saudi’s main arms dealers are reacting to news of the killing, finding that while Germany says sales “can’t take place” under current conditions, leaders from Canada, France, Spain and the United States have dodged questions about freezing arms sales or refused to halt them altogether. Medea Benjamin, co-founder of Code Pink: Women for Peace and author of the book Kingdom of the Unjust: Behind the US-Saudi Connection, joins Anya to discuss what this saga has revealed about western leaders.
