8:05 am
to the amount of casualties has been talking that's been in the driving seat releasing leaked off the leak whenever there was an attempt to maybe distorts what they say are the facts whenever there was an attempt to cover up what they say was a gruesome murder the turks have ensured that they always release certain information that would dispel or disprove that narrative however up until now so i mean they have not come up without conclusive evidence they haven't revealed exactly how they found out that jamal khashoggi was murdered they haven't found out exactly what haven't released these old your tapes or these video recordings that some people have a legit they have of what's happened in that building three weeks ago president much of tehran has always said and will he's officials in the foreign minister as well as other senior members of the governments here in turkey that they will not allow for a cover up but remember this is turkey this is the middle east this is geopolitics this is at a time when the suffering this is at a time when saudi expansionism in terms of its foreign policy has really been
8:06 am
influencing what happens in other countries in the region this is the era of donald trump and the deals that are made behind closed doors and the the the arms deals that seem to be dictating what the foreign policy of the of the united states and other countries should be and therefore there is that skepticism people are saying that maybe there won't be that full disclosure as it cites of promised however we only have that word to go by up until now what's true sister of deal what's you chooses to say and who he implicates is going to prove extremely decisive not only for this case and maybe finding some closure finally sami but could very well this side on the future leadership of the saudi of saudi arabia as well as the region to mount a shael that some. stumble well as we reported the head of the cia has been dispatched to turkey she joins a group of u.s. investigators already on the ground trying to determine the facts of the case. has been talking to the u.s. media outlets about the killing of the cal high and explains. u.s.
8:07 am
president donald trump hitting the campaign trail again he wants to talk about the upcoming election but. the questions keep coming back to this one what is the u.s. going to do after saudi arabia admitted to killing american resident and washington journalist jamal khashoggi the president making news announcing u.s. investigators are on the case over your. great. turkey right now at a great. party right there coming back to my car and i will not. i am not satisfied with what i but he continued to stress the most important thing to him investment from saudi arabia even though he has grossly inflated the actual amounts his son in law and senior adviser jared kushner is also talking he's staked much of his work in the middle east on his close relationship with the crown prince mohammed bin so man he says coup shows he's killing seems to be
8:08 am
a terrible situation but stressed other factors are important as well once we have all the facts that will make an assessment but again i think that our administration has made a lot of gains in our fight against terrorism we have to deal with the long term ideology. of extremism and saudi arabia is a critical partner in that at the same time the trying to administration sending messages of support with this meeting a picture tweeted out from the saudi foreign ministry of the u.s. treasury secretary steve minutia and meeting with the prince in the kingdom un day mixed messages and a sense of hesitation from the u.s. but the pressure is unrelenting this has stayed in the headlines. and a member of the royal prince's security team of saudi arabian officials changing their story about the fate of washington post journalist jamal khashoggi there are major developments also in the case i think is the longest the saudis continue to offer different explanations different stories as to what happened i think the
8:09 am
story will continue to have a legs because there there is no concrete answers that we're getting a relationship that will be put to the test in a short amount of time the president promising answers soon but action is less certain pedicle hane al jazeera washington let's go live now to my colleagues in washington d.c. so mike we know that the head of the cia has been sent you what exactly was kind of mission has she been given. well that we don't know the cia will not even confirm her travel arrangements but what we do know is that president trump was talking during on monday about the intelligence information he's waiting to receive he said he should receive a delay to choose day so he would expect to be hearing back from the cia director i would imagine when she returns now we also heard there steve minucci in the
8:10 am
treasury secretary is in saudi arabia to us we do hear from president trump that there are some other intelligence teams in place president himself come to news to prevaricate and his exact position he stated in the course of the day that this set of or could have been a plot gone arrive implying that this was not in his view a premeditated killing that it was in some way a mistake so president trump though he's expressing dissatisfaction still he appears to hold out belief in the prada stations of the saudi government that they had no knowledge of the act or in particular that the crown prince had no knowledge of the act by allowing his treasury secretary to meet with the prince it would appear to indicate that president trump intent on keeping the door to saudi arabian relations open so i mean all right mike hanna there from washington d.c.
8:11 am
they handled mohammed in some and social media now so the qahtani one of the most powerful men in the saudi crown prince is in the circle seems to be implicated in the killing of jamal and should be. reuters news agency says he was beamed into a room of the saudi consulate on skype where he hurled insults a sure and at one point ordered his killing danny was removed from his post as the advisor to the royal court to contain the fallout over who should g.'s death his ties to the crown prince are widely known he once tweeted he wouldn't do anything without his boss's approval this includes leading an interrogation of lebanon's prime minister sad how daily and the arrests of hundreds of saudi arabia's elite the forty year old has a reputation for cracking down on voices critical of the kingdom in the crown prince online now that hashmi is director of the center for middle east studies at the university of denver he says the video evidence of saudi crown prince's top
8:12 am
aide will implicate muhammad in sandman in the killing of damascus. well i think a lot of it has to revolve revolves around exactly how jamal khashoggi was murdered the saudi narrative is that it was a brawl he died in a stranglehold and they sort of gave the body to a local collaborator the leaks from the turkish intelligence services suggested that he was killed very early after entering the consulate and then his body was dismembered so any evidence that suggests that the turkish narrative is the one that holds up and can be proven specifically with respect to this forensic expert who is an expert in autopsy and came to stumble with a bone saw anything along those lines that speaks to exactly how jamal was killed i think well you know determine which side has the stronger claim and it will shape events moving forward well the timing is basically. and b s's the saudi crown
8:13 am
prince his right hand man and his enforcer he's widely known to be the equivalent of a steve benen type figure within the inner circle of the saudi crown prince so the reuters report suggests that the skype. call that was made from assad into the interrogation room was picked up by turkish intelligence services and that's now in the hands of the turkish president so if the turkish president tomorrow reveals that. audiotape then i think it will directly implicate the saudi crown prince. there's been a chorus of condemnation and demands for a transpire an inquiry into her show g.'s killing by leaders from around the world german chancellor angela merkel says her country will not export arms to saudi arabia until the facts behind what she called monstrosity are clear canada too says it's prepared to hold a thirteen billion dollars arms deal if the weapons were misused adding more
