As we go to press, the Saudi launched/American-backed war against Yemen, which has caused the worst humanitarian disaster in the world today, with some 14 million people starving, a devastating cholera outbreak, deepening economic depression, over 100,000 dead and millions wounded… is absent from western media coverage.
Despite the tragedy of war, what most has been covered by the Presstitutes was the killing of Saudi Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi dissident and journalist for the Washington Post.
If fact, last year, in protest of the Khashoggi murder tied to the Saudi Prince, Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud, prominent American business leaders and government officials boycotted the Saudi’s Future Investment Initiative.
Now, one year later, despite the ongoing devastation in Yemen and failure to make the Saudi government accountable for the Khashoggi murder, Americans are back in town.
Continuing its long-term involvement in the Middle East, the U.S. Treasury Department confirmed last Tuesday that Steven Mnuchin, Treasury Secretary, and Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law, along with an elite group from Wall Street and Washington insiders will attend an investment conference in Saudi Arabia next week.
Others attending from the U.S. are Stephen A. Schwarzman, CEO of the Blackstone Group; Dina Powell McCormick from Goldman Sachs; and Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock.
