Sheldon Richman talks about his latest TGIF article, “The Insidious Wiles of Foreign Influence: Trump, Bin Salman, and Netanyahu”. Scott and Sheldon bemoan the fact that the killing of Khashoggi has received far more outrage from journalists, politicians, and the public than the outrageous war in Yemen has. Although not exactly surprising, it’s still disturbing. Sheldon maintains that Saudi Arabia is probably the worst possible regime for the United States to count among its allies.
