Don’t Let the Saudis Off the Hook for the Migrant Massacres

“The Biden administration knew about the killing of hundreds and possibly thousands of Ethiopian migrants by Saudi border guards months before the Human Rights Watch report raised the alarm last week, but did nothing about it …. The Washington Post reports today that the administration is now pressing the Saudis to identify the units responsible for massacring the migrants. … If it weren’t for the external pressure and publicity created by the report, the administration almost certainly would have continued to stay silent and look the other way while Saudi forces continued to slaughter these people.” (08/31/23)
