Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who insisted last week that there was “no smoking gun” linking Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, appears to be backtracking.
In comments to reporters traveling with him to Canada, Mattis said the question of the crown prince’s complicity is still unresolved.
The article goes on to state the following:
“We are continuing to review. I am quite satisfied we will find more evidence of what happened,” Mattis said Wednesday.
“I just don’t know yet what it’s going to be or who’s going to be implicated, but we will follow it as far as we can,” he said according to a transcript released by the Pentagon Thursday.
SecDef Mattis defends his characterization of Khashoggi intelligence -“If I say something, I need the evidence…whether you call it smoking gun, smoking saw..I’ve already said where I stand on that, & even my adversaries have learned to count on my word”

Traveling with reporters to Canada Defense Secretary #Mattis said @LindseyGrahamSC “has a right to his own opinion,” as the Senator was critical of Mattis saying there is no smoking gun in the #Khashoggi murder. Instead Graham coined the “smoking saw.”

.@LindseyGrahamSC on Khashoggi: “0 chance that this happened in such an organized fashion without Crown Prince [being involved]…I have great respect for Pompeo & Mattis [but] If they were in a Dem administration, I would be all over them for being in the pocket of Saudi Arabia” pic.twitter.com/mFZagAnkMd
