Jamal Khashoggi’s murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul violated international norms, human rights, and international law. The Saudi government needs to be punished for this transgression — and ending U.S. military aid and arms sales will hit them where it hurts.
The Saudi government has already arrested multiple people in connection with Khashoggi’s death, and is prosecuting them to the fullest extent of the law. It doesn’t make sense to hold U.S. and Saudi national security interests hostage to a single incident, no matter how horrific.
