Khashoggi's importance? Mossad lessons, Arab honor, Bolton Kelly

Sorry, but Jamal Khashoggi doesn’t matter that much. US interests, the nature of the Saudi regime, and Middle Eastern politics explain why.
What the Israeli Mossad and the Jordanian GID would teach Saudi intelligence officers. Namely, to be more calculating, cautious, and a little bit more moral.
Mike Pompeo embraces Sunni-Arab honor to pressure the Saudis to come clean about Khashoggi. The secretary of state has upped the ante for Riyadh.
Why you should welcome John Bolton’s showdown with John Kelly. The two top White House officials are helping maximize the chance of the best US policy.
