Two and a half years later, the United States has released its official report on the killing of Saudi dissident and Washington Post columnist, Jamal Khashoggi. The report states that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman approved the operation that led to his killing. But in the days since the report, the Biden administration has resisted sanctioning the Saudi leader. We hear from the author of a 2019 United Nations investigation on Khashoggi’s killing on what she found in the US report, and what she thinks is missing in order to serve justice for Khashoggi.
