Martin Chulov of the Guardian discusses the broader impact of Jamal Khashoggi’s murder.
Under the leadership of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi Arabia has pursued policies that have undermined both U.S. interests and values.

By mediating conflicts and combining their assets in the Horn of Africa, Saudi Arabia and the UAE are slowly cementing an arc of political influence across the region.
The outrageous murder of the Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi in the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul has brought into sharp relief the deepening conflict between Riyadh and Ankara.
Jamal Khashoggi’s murder demands a meaningful response from the United States. Washington has a responsibility to stand up for U.S. residents and for the free press.
