A Bad Deal  

By on October 21, 2018 in See It Here

A Virginia resident who is not an American citizen was killed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul as he was completing required paperwork for a marriage license.

This happened on October 2nd. Saudi Arabia released a statement more than a week later saying Jamal Khashoggi was killed in a fistfight with Saudi agents, but none were linked to the country’s top guy Crown Prince Salman.

President Trump says the acknowledgment is “a good first step.”

But President Trump won’t say potential arms sales are now off the table as a result of the murder. Yes, the US is the top seller of weapons to the country–last year 5.5 billion dollars was paid to the US. President Trump says this keeps people employed…and he’s working on a $110 billion deal, because he is master of the necessary “art” involved in deals that only he is capable of making.

Someone dies? No big deal.

That “first step” means Saudi Arabia can continue to investigate the death, until, of course, the next person is murdered. Then, we will have another phony investigation. And another stupid statement from the White House. Remember, this is all about jobs, which has nothing to do with ethics.

Made in America has lost its meaning.
