A Glimpse of a Final Saudi Resolution

The Saudi explanation that the death of Kashogi was premeditated, explanation #17, gets closer to the truth. The Saudi government has detained 18 of their own operatives, and Trump, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, signaled the final explanation.

The final explanation will be that the Crown Prince will take responsibility for the murder as the Chief Operations Officer, but deny any personal knowledge of the murder.

It is a fig leaf, of course, but a fig leaf that works in diplomatic circles. If the King decides to punish the Crown Prince it will allow him to resign for health reasons in a few months.
