Blood on Biden’s hands – Khashoggi’s death costs $500M to Saudis

Subscribe to Google News

WASHINGTON – The US State Department announced that on September 17, 2021, it negotiated a $ 500 million defense agreement with Saudi Arabia, learned BulgarianMilitary.com. This is the first defense agreement signed between the White House and Riyadh since Joseph Biden became president of the United States.

Under the terms of the agreement, the United States must provide regular maintenance over the next two years to the entire US helicopter fleet from Saudi Arabia, namely about 50 AH-64 Apache D and E helicopters and up to 45 UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters.

In theory, this contract also covers the maintenance of all 48 CH-47D Chinook propellers that will be delivered to Riyadh soon. The United States will send up to 350 technicians to Saudi Arabia to fulfill its commitments.

Biden’s hypocritical year

Joe Biden took office in January this year as the 46th president of the United States. His great desire was to deal with the covid epidemic and the mortality caused by this virus. Maybe he should have focused on this internal problem, and foreign policy should have postponed it for at least a year.

But the recent actions of the American president show that he is no different from Donald Trump. Money in front of life. See Afghanistan. The United States had to withdraw from the Asian country after 20 years of fruitless war. But the way they did it cost the lives of many civilians. Who will be responsible for them? Will Joe Biden ever have the courage to stand up to his fellow Americans and take responsibility for the lies he tells? Because he said a lot of lies. Let’s not go into details, but a US intelligence report is on my desk. It clearly states what will happen to Kabul in six months. Who withheld this information from the Americans? Not us.

Defense cooperation between the United States and Saudi Arabia was “frozen” in 2019 after the massacre of journalist Jamal Khashoggi 2019. BulgarianMilitary.com reminds you that Joe Biden seriously criticized his predecessor Donald Trump for trying to sell weapons to Saudis. It was Joe Biden who kept reminding him that Jamal Khashoggi should not be forgotten that the United States does not do that.

US President-elect Joseph Biden said at the beginning of his term that he would not “unfreeze” defense supplies to Riyadh. But the current White House leader has given up on his previous intention.

We move forward – life is wonderful, innocent people die, lies are the new truth, hypocrisy is the new advantage. I can’t understand you – what do you dislike about this world? What did we need these journalists for? They die so well. Oh, wait – they are a conductor of great successful arms deals and belief in people who, instead of governing us, mock us.

The assassination of Jamal Khashoggi

The murder of Jamal Khashoggi took place on October 2, 2018, in the building of the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul, where Khashoggi came for documents.

Khashoggi was last seen when he entered the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul. On the street, a bride was waiting for him for several hours, who was not allowed in with him and who later announced the disappearance of her fiancé to the Turkish authorities. Saudi Arabian authorities said that Khashoggi left the consulate building through a different exit. At the same time, the Turkish authorities said that, after studying the recordings from CCTV cameras, there was no reason to believe that Khashoggi had left the consulate building.

On October 11, it became known that the Turkish authorities are studying the possibility of receiving audio recordings made by Khashoggi using his own Apple Watch, and which could be uploaded to the Apple iCloud cloud storage service or to his phone, which he gave to his bride.

On October 20, the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced preliminary results of an investigation, according to which Khashoggi was accidentally killed during a fight that broke out inside the Saudi consulate building, which was the first confirmation of Khashoggi’s death by the Saudi Arabian authorities.

On October 23, the media disseminated information that Khashoggi’s body was found in a well in the garden of the Saudi Arabian consul’s residence, 500 meters from the consulate itself, where the murder took place. Media sources reported that Khashoggi’s body was dismembered and his face disfigured.
