8:50 am
a tour of a number of brotherly arab countries he's also expected to participate in the g. twenty meeting and when azeris at the end of the month with other wild leads. the u.s. president meanwhile is once again contradicting the reported findings of his own intelligence agency that the crown prince authorized she's killing donald trump insists nothing has been concluded attackers media websites however says that the cia has a phone recording and which bin. apparently orders that can be silenced as soon as possible so you have a ten zero ports from washington d.c. you're celebrating it wherever you are at the u.s. president had just completed a call to troops to wish them a happy thanksgiving and have broken with protocol by asking a service members to comment on political and logistical matters in front of the gathered press then he eagerly fielded questions on a range of topics from reporters the cia's assessment of the crown prince of saudi arabia ordered the killing of jamal khashoggi soon cropped up. for him yet.
8:51 am
i don't want to talk about it you have to destroy the president insisted that the cia had not reached any conclusion about the crown prince's responsibility for the murder and once again repeated what had been judged to be vastly inflated figures out of the saudi contribution to the us economy whether he did or whether he did and he denies it vehemently his father denies it taking vehemently the cia doesn't say they did it they do point out certain things and pointing out those things you can conclude that maybe he did or maybe he didn't but there's no there was another part of the false reporting because a lot of you said yesterday that they said he did it well they didn't say that they said he might have done it that's a big difference but they're vehemently denying that. according to media reports the cia has high confidence that the crown prince gave the order to kill khashoggi however it did so based on circumstantial evidence such as communications
8:52 am
intercepts and the saudi power structure and that's all the leeway the president needs to deny any definitive conclusion the president also said this didn't have saudi arabia we wouldn't have a big base with a puzzling statement given the u.s. withdrew most of its troops from saudi arabia in two thousand and three that presence in a country that held two of islams holiest sites have become a source of regional tension over the last several years there have been reports of a secret u.s. drone base in the kingdom however it's not clear to what the president was referring thank you very much but she overturned. victoria gazing day takes a closer look at the evidence surrounding the matter and there is involved the u.s. has imposed sanctions on seventeen saudi officials for their suspected involvement in the killing of jamal khashoggi they include a fifteen man hit squad that traveled to turkey to carry out the operation so who made up this team and who did they report to let's start with abdul aziz mitra who
8:53 am
is believed to have been the coordinator of the operation he's a general in crown prince mohammed bin soundman security team next we have saddam hamit al to begun an expert in autopsies and a colonel in saudi arabia's interior ministry it's headed by prince abdulaziz bin sowed else out he reports directly to king solomon old the crown prince six members of the team that killed were part of the crown prince's security detail three others were members of the national guard an internal security force which protects the royal family it's led by prince khalid bin abdel aziz al muqrin and one was a member of the rules saudi af or its part of the ministry of defense which falls under the control of the crown prince the us is also impose sanctions on saudi tani he's a senior advisor to crown prince mohammed bin salomon and on mohammed al table the
8:54 am
saudi consul general it is stamboul where he shows he was murdered he reports to the saudi foreign ministry which is led by addle. his department issued the passports used by the hit team to and to turkey the private jets they flew in from riyadh to istanbul and back which charted from a company owned by the saudi government. the money is a professor at the university of waterloo in canada she says the crown prince will try to use the g twenty summit later this month to restore his reputation on the wild stage. i'm afraid that many other countries are going to also fall in line particularly some of the countries that have these large arms trade deals with the saudis i'm thinking of the u.k. for example france i just don't see how either of those two leaders are willing to sort of i think shake the shake the boat there or try to sort of press and haven't been summoned but we might see some like merkel who you know knows that she is basically in a lame duck position she's got eighteen months left doesn't have
8:55 am
a very strong trade deal with the saudis may indeed be some do something bold i mean really who i'm looking for in terms of of shaking things up i think you're going to see him haven't been so man to really try to reach out he wants a photo opportunity he wants the normalization of legitimacy that one gets at these forums and being seen by world leaders as part of the club and so we're going to look and see i think many opportunities that haven't been someone trying to seem very jolly smiles and any leader who would afford him the opportunity to shake his hand and smile in that photo camera is going to be a win from haven't been so many others i suspect like our prime minister here in canada justin trudeau will avoid him at all costs it is damaging i think for many countries and many leaders reputation we have an election coming up next year that's on our minds and so every country i think will look at their national interest will look at their public sort of receptivity to this and determine
