Secretary Pompeo’s trip to Egypt comes on the 100th day of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi’s death, after he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 2 and never emerged. Pompeo and the Trump administration have defended Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman even though the Senate voted unanimously to find him responsible for Khashoggi’s murder. In another recent development, Turkish officials have released footage purporting to show members of a Saudi hit squad carrying Khashoggi’s body parts out of the consulate in large black bags.
