Senate Introduces Bipartisan Resolution Condemning Saudi Crown Prince

Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Todd Young (R-Ind.) and Chris Coons (D-Del.) introduced a resolution Wednesday to hold Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) responsible for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The big picture: In addition to assessing with "a high level of confidence" that MBS was complicit in Khashoggi's killing, the bipartisan resolution condemns the crown prince's destabilizing behavior in the region, including his contributions to the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, the blockade of Qatar and his crackdown on political dissidents. It comes as the Senate weighs passing a resolution that would end U.S. support for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.

1. If you want to condemn the murder, great.

Backing out of supporting Saudi in Yemen will bite us in the ass.

3. Have you noticed who the POTUS is?

(I know it's hard to believe, but it's been a couple of years now.)

8. If they voiced any condemnations, you'd just tell them to fuck off.

5. If it is soo bipartisan and they are soo determined, why don't they declare war?

It is within their Constitutional powers, you know.

Resolutions are BS gestures. Either do something or shut the Hell up! Do something more productive and stop sticking your noses into other affairs. It's not like they solved all other issues and have nothing else to do.

7. Absolutely!

There is far more going on behind the scenes with this Khashoggi tempest in a teaspoon. I would like to know what is compelling such visible outrage over the killing of a Muslim brotherhood promoter.
