Official statement by the Saudis about how they're doing everything they can to get to the truth.

Looks like it.

It will be a bit harder to be so openly chummy with a murderous regime, but business will go on as usual, a bit more discreetly I suppose.

^ Yep! The way this saga is unfurling is as predictable as it is depressing. With Trump's inevitable acceptance of the implausable Saudi story we now have the unedifying spectacle of liar agreeing with liar so that the mutually beneficial relationship between the Saud family and the Trump family can continue.

Remember when Trump said we kill people, too? He was right, you know.

My question is, are there alternative political options that offer a different stance for the situation? I haven't read anything from the US democrats about this, since it seems they were and would want to continue to be quite friendly with the Saudis, I think some elements of the British left want a re-evaluation, but would it really happen? Would the people actually support the cutting of ties with SA if it meant loss of jobs or higher oil prices/cost of living? Not so convinced. :/
