Biden Admits He Won't Sanction MbS Simply Because Saudis Remain "Our Allies"

The White House has issued a belated response - or ultimately a weak attempt at damage control - amid growing bipartisan outrage that despite his prior "tough" talk on the campaign trail to "hold the Saudis to account", crown prince Mohammed bin Salman is getting off scot-free.

"The Biden administration defended its decision not to sanction Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman personally for his role in the death of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, as the White House confirmed no more actions against the kingdom are imminent," Stars & Stripes reports Sunday. This means that not so much as suspension of weapons sales are on the table, apparently.
