Saudi Foreign Minister Claims Murder Was A “Rogue Operation” Done Without Prince’s Knowledge [VIDEO]

USA Today reports:

Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister said Sunday that a “tremendous mistake” was made when Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was killed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and pushed back against the idea that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was linked to the journalist’s death.

Adel al-Jubeir told Fox News host Brett Baier that Khashoggi was killed in a “criminal” act committed by individuals operating “outside the scope of their authority.”

“There obviously was a tremendous mistake made and what compounded the mistake was the attempt to try to cover up. That is unacceptable in any government,” he said. He characterized the killing as an “aberration” that did not fit with the behavior of the Saudi regime.
