US Releases Report on Jamal Khashoggi Killing

Summary from the AllSides News Team

The Biden administration released a declassified intelligence report Friday concluding that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman approved the 2018 operation to capture or kill Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. President Joe Biden told reporters on Wednesday that he had read the report. Biden called Saudi Arabia’s King Salman prior to the release in their first conversation since Biden took office. Additionally, CNN reported Thursday that the private jets used by Khashoggi’s killers were owned by a company previously seized by the crown prince. Coverage and original reporting were more common in left- and center-rated outlets than in right-rated outlets. Outlets on all sides tended to cover at least one aspect of the story, with some center-rated outlets publishing separate articles on each development.
