Despite the disclosure of an intelligence report which stated Saudi Prince Mohammad bin Salman’s involvement in journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murder, the Biden administration has not yet issued sanctions or taken any significant action against Saudi’s de facto ruler.

The White House is facing criticism for not taking any action against the ruler of the US’s ally in the Middle East.

Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi national and columnist for The Washington Post was killed in Istanbul in 2018.

The White House State Department issued 76 visa restrictions against Saudi nationals involved in the incident. However, no action has been taken against the Saudi Prince Himself.

People have questioned Biden's dedication to the protection of civil liberties and freedom of the press.
