We base this evaluation on the Crown Prince’s management of decision-making within the Kingdom since 2017, the direct involvement of a key adviser and members of Muhammad bin Salman’s protecting element within the operation, and the Crown Prince’s help for utilizing violent measures to silence dissidents overseas, together with Khashoggi. Since 2017, the Crown Prince has had absolute management of the Kingdom’safety and intelligence organizations, making it extremely unlikely that Saudi officers would have carried out an operation of this nature with out the Crown Prince’s authorization.”
