Roy Moore Interviewed By Hannity: Didn't Date Girls In Late Teens, Accusations - Moore has denied the allegation made by the woman who said he behaved inappropriately towards her when she was 14, and said that he had never met her. MOORE: Well I think they should see it as it really is, and that's 40 years I've been in the the public eye.

  85. Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate and former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, was born in Gadsden, a small city flanked by Interstate 59 and the Coosa River, an hour northeast of Birmingham. Gadsden is hilly, woodsy, blue-collar, and religious. I saw it as I drove around, crisscrossing George Wallace Drive. I also saw Trump posters, Confederate flags, and dozens of signs for Doug Jones, the Democrat. Gadsden is the seat of Etowah County, which is a conservative place; received three times as many votes in the county as Hillary Clinton did. Statewide, he received twice as many. The Gadsden Mall opened in 1974. It has two department stores, Belk and Sears, one on each end. Between them, on Sunday night, I walked past Books-A-Million, Cellular Solutions, a Japanese steak house, Great American Cookies, Blacklight Mini-Golf, KnockerBall Gadsden, an eyebrow-styling kiosk, and a clothing store for young girls, called Justice. A diverse assortment of families wandered around the place, which felt trapped in time. Two young security guards made their rounds. On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that, when Moore was a thirty-two-year-old assistant district attorney in Etowah County, he brought Leigh Corfman, who was fourteen years old at the time, to his home and. Three additional women told the Post that Moore had pursued them when they were in their teens and he was in his early thirties. On Monday, another woman, Beverly Young Nelson, said that when she was sixteen years old. At a press conference, she held up a high-school yearbook that she said Moore signed before the alleged assault. Some say that they heard this at the time, others in the years since. These people include five members of the local legal community, two cops who worked in the town, several people who hung out at the mall in the early eighties, and a number of former mall employees. A request for comment from the Moore campaign was not answered. Several of them asked that I leave their names out of this piece. Wilson declined to divulge his sources. There were no empty stores. And lots of kids came around. You went there to see and be seen. She worked at a restaurant called Orange Bowl. Legat remembers that parents dropped their kids off at the mall, typically unchaperoned. Teens filled the place. Legat says that he saw Moore there a few times, even though his understanding then was that he had already been banned. Thomas, now retired, who worked security at the mall. He was a good guy. Reached by phone on Saturday, Thomas, who lives in the nearby town of Southside, declined to discuss the existence of a ban on Moore at the Gadsden Mall. Barnes Boyle, who is eighty-six, also managed the mall, from 1981 to 1998. His wife, Brenda, told me that Moore was a longtime acquaintance of his—they went to the Y. Anyway, when asked why they had to keep an eye outside, they said that some older guy had been trying to pick up younger girls. But two officers I spoke to this weekend, both of whom asked to remain unnamed, told me that they have long heard stories about Moore and the mall. The legal age of consent in Alabama is sixteen, so it would not be illegal there for a man in his early thirties to date a girl who was, say, a senior in high school. I liked him at one time. That made me want to throw up. The Fox News host pressed for specifics. Allegations of sexual misconduct with her are completely false. I believe they are politically motivated.

King Faisal, who orchestrated the coup against Saud and succeeded him, was assassinated eleven years later, by a nephew. He also already appears to be gaming his political rehabilitation, both at home and in the eyes of the outside world. With his red-checkered kaffiyeh draped over the front of his pristine white robe, M. That same Salman is now king; M. Opposition often played out over human rights or on sectarian grounds, fuelled by the isolation and repression of the minority Shiite population. Judging public sentiment in Saudi Arabia is difficult, however, as it is one of the most impenetrable societies on earth and has no independent public polling. There is precedent for this. Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, the former Minister of the Interior and a close U. Nayef is still under virtual house arrest. It would take a decision by the king to turn against his favorite son. That is one reason that M. Gregory Gause, a Saudi expert at the Bush School of Government, at Texas A. Ibn Saud, the founder, had more than forty sons and even more daughters. Saud, his son, had more than a hundred children. The family now has thousands of members. Partly because of its size—and the imminent transition from the first generation of brothers to some of their sons—the late King Abdullah announced, in 2006, the creation of an Allegiance Council. It currently includes only thirty-five senior princes. The king alone used to name his crown prince. Now the council is empowered to vote on his candidate. Few on the Allegiance Council opted to vote against M. Royals have grumbled to me in the past over M. Few Saudis dare to publicly challenge the powerful crown prince for fear of retribution. But things are very fluid. For months, there has been speculation in the region and in Washington that M. It seems, by far, the least likely. Whatever happens to M. It could shape the future of the desert kingdom for many decades; he is only thirty-three. Each was a brainchild of the crown prince. Dozens of countries depend on it for energy and fuel. Whatever happens to him will have long-lasting repercussions for the kingdom. He has been identified by Turkish officials as Mustafa al-Madani, reportedly a Saudi intelligence agent who flew to Turkey that day as part of a fifteen-man hit squad. He was still in his sneakers. The two men were of roughly the same height, weight, and age—in their late fifties. But they apparently did not have the same shoe size. When they came out, Madani was back in his blue-and-white shirt, which presumably had been in the white plastic bag, and was still wearing his tennis shoes. With that, the last trace of the Saudi dissident disappeared. In another surveillance photograph leaked by the Turks, Madani and his companion—no longer wearing a hoodie—are shown smiling together in front of an elevator. The evidence in the Khashoggi murder increasingly points to premeditation by the Saudi government. Like the bone saw that the team allegedly carried, a fake beard is a prop that they would presumably have needed to bring with them, especially given how fast the switch played out. That is unacceptable in any government. And we are determined to punish those who are responsible for this murder. Saddam Hussein, the former President of Iraq, had multiple look-alikes and used them regularly for public appearances. One of the statues of Saddam that was torn down after his ouster, in 2003, turned out to be based on one of his approved impersonators. In the Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin had at least four body doubles. Felix Dadaev, a dancer and a juggler, claimed that he and others impersonated the former Soviet leader during rallies, motorcades, and media appearances—including once for a decoy flight to the famous summit in Yalta with President Franklin Roosevelt and the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill—when Stalin believed that he was in danger. But the scope of evidence suggesting premeditation or an official coverup is widening. It, too, was believed to have links to the Khashoggi saga. On a previous stop in Jerusalem, Mnuchin told reporters that the U. Sixteen days later, the Saudis said that they need another month to investigate his death, which would conveniently time the release of their findings to the aftermath of a pivotal midterm election in the United States.

The Khashoggi affair may be the one issue on which there is sweeping bipartisan agreement in Washington and among foreign-policy analysts.

The idea that he would have gotten into a fight so vicious that it would end his life is beyond improbable. The stupidity of the Saudi explanation is mind boggling. For several days, reports have suggested that the fall guy in the Khashoggi affair may be General Ahmed al-Asiri, one of the main architects of the Saudi war in Yemen.

The horrific details of his murder and dismemberment have had an effect he would never have imagined—putting into serious question the fate of a Saudi leader, the state of U. The repercussions are only beginning. Saudi Arabia may be the most cruel and ruthless government in the region, but it uses tactics embraced by dictators, sheikhs, and Presidents across twenty-two countries. On Thursday, the U. But no foreign government is addressing the broader political practices in any other country, or any other case, in the region. And, in some cases, notably Egypt, conditions have deteriorated. In 2014, he was sentenced to ten years in prison, a thousand lashes, and a fine that exceeded a quarter million dollars. When the Canadian Foreign Minister, Chrystia Freeland, tweeted her concern about the Badawi siblings, in August, the kingdom responded by expelling the Canadian Ambassador, recalling its envoy, freezing all new trade and investment, suspending flights by the state airline to Toronto, and ordering thousands of Saudi students to leave Canada. In the United Arab Emirates, Ahmed Mansoor, who ran a Web site focussed on reforms, was sentenced to ten years for social-media comments calling for reform.

Katherine Zoepf discusses a collection of clips from the October 26th campaign, which was launched as a protest. She is currently leading at least four investigations into the activities of Secretary Zinke himself, including one concerning his ties to a real-estate deal, in Whitefish, Montana, that is backed by the chairman of Halliburton. As far as Kendall knew, she still had the job. Zinke ultimately reimbursed the department for the taxpayer dollars her rides had cost. Park Police had provided a twenty-five-thousand-dollar unarmed security detail to accompany Zinke and his wife on their holiday in Turkey and Greece last summer. He apparently was concerned about his safety in Istanbul. He did not notify D. Her office is still looking at several possible abuses, including the potential conflict of interest between Zinke and the chairman of Halliburton over a Montana real-estate deal. Any suggestion to the contrary is absurd. Whether Kendall will have enough time to see her investigations to the end is another question. She took the reins in 2009, as the acting I. On Friday, she resigned from the federal government. Previously, she was a Web editor and a deputy head of fact checking for the magazine. The front of each card features the B. Amber Cargile, a B. House of Representatives, this sort of ideological conformity has been a top priority. One Interior Department official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing fear of reprisal, said that the agency had discontinued its program of making conservation posters publicly available. The vision cards, it appears, were meant to remind B. What is clear, though, is why he did it. In January, the agency issued new guidelines scrapping many of the reforms that the Obama Administration had enacted. The Interior Department official said that the B. Bush was no friend of the environment, but he could justify his policies, to some extent, on economic grounds. In the early years of his Presidency, the domestic natural-gas supply was sinking and the country was reliant on imported fuel. Bush sought to boost production by auctioning off leases on millions of acres of public land. Since then, the energy sector has changed. Fracking on mostly private lands in the Permian Basin, in Texas, and the Bakken Formation, in North Dakota, has led to an energy surplus. Last December, the B. Less than one per cent of the land received bids. In March, the agency tried again, this time with fifteen thousand parcels in the Gulf of Mexico. In late March, the B. Some of the parcels are located within a few miles of the original boundaries of Bears Ears; others are adjacent to Hovenweep, a national monument containing the ruins of six prehistoric Native American villages. In 2015, under Obama, the B. Under the new Administration, the agency changed course, arguing that the analysis could take place once the bidders put forth their drilling proposals. In a statement, the B. Right now, the Interior Department source told me, the land sold in March shows little potential for lucrative development. So why did the industry bid on it? Bloch suggested two possible reasons. First, he said, companies sometimes stockpile leases because it looks good to their investors: in theory, more assets mean more reserves, which mean more profit down the road. Never mind that the reserves may not actually exist. Second, some buyers purchase undesirable leases with the hope of unloading them when better extraction technologies or a needier market increase their value. Once the land is leased, they noted, the B. In addition, the agency most often sells its leases without any stipulation preventing surface occupancy, meaning that some development—clearing brush, building roads, drilling wells—may occur. Once that happens, any possibility of using the land for conservation or recreation, or preserving it because it is sacred to local tribal groups, goes out the window. Previously, she was a Web editor and a deputy head of fact checking for the magazine. The name of the project referred to a campaign to limit the rise in average global temperature to 1. Since the 2009 United Nations climate talks, in Copenhagen, the consensus among scientists and policymakers has been that two degrees Celsius should be the limit; any further temperature increase would be catastrophic. Their communities would be inundated, and eventually destroyed. This could happen by the time the children in the film reached middle age. The summary tells a nightmarish tale—one much worse than any of those in the I. Security and economic growth will be that much more imperilled. Its importance is hard to overstate. The thirty-three-page summary for policymakers—which is based on more than six thousand cited studies, and written by ninety-one authors from forty different countries—is a collective scream sieved through the stern, strained language of bureaucratese. Unique ecosystems will vanish and species will go extinct by the thousands. Nearly all the coral reefs more than ninety-nine per cent will be dead, including the Great Barrier Reef, an ecosystem some twenty-five million years old, which is visible from space and is already in severe decline. The global annual catch from marine fisheries will decrease by three million tons. The likelihood of a sea-ice-free Arctic summer will increase from once per century to once per decade. Working Group II, said. There are three working groups: one focussed on the physical science of climate change; the second on impacts, adaptation, and vulnerabilities; and the third on mitigation. Within the next decade, human-caused carbon-dioxide emissions need to fall forty-five per cent below 2010 levels. By 2050, net carbon-dioxide emissions must equal zero. Warming has already led to weather extremes such as heat waves and precipitation of increased intensity and frequency. If warming continues at its current rate, it could reach 1. It is very hard to grow an ice sheet, but very easy to melt. If the world continues burning fossil fuels and emitting greenhouse gases at the current rate, it could rise by four degrees—a fact that the Trump Administration, which withdrew the United States from the Paris Agreement, in June, 2017, acknowledged with language buried deep in an August draft report issued in support of eliminating Obama-era fuel-economy rules. Representatives from the Trump Administration were in Incheon and had to approve the conclusions of the report. Whether President Trump will respond to its findings remains to be seen. Rich nations have not followed through on that promise; this year, both the United States and Australia declared that they would no longer be contributing any money at all. They have been given a map of the scale and urgency of the risks that island nations, and the rest of the world, now face, and also specific, feasible pathways to reduced emissions. The science is settled. The only question now is whether the world can find the political—or moral—will to do anything about it.

Department of the Interior, by Ryan Zinke, whose alleged ethics violations Kendall was investigating. When he was sixteen, after gangsters in Honduras threatened to kill him, he made the trip with two other boys, but they were attacked by extortionists at the Mexican border, robbed, and eventually apprehended by Mexican authorities. Two years later, he undertook the journey again, this time with a slightly larger group. In Mexico, he fell from a moving freight train—part of a network that spans the country known as the Beast—and lost an arm, half of one leg, and part of his left hand. Once more he was deported to Honduras. When he finally left the hospital, after a two-year recovery, Hernández began planning another trip. These are people fleeing for their lives. On Tuesday, Guatemalan police arrested a Honduran journalist named Bartolo Fuentes, the host of a popular radio program on migration, who was accused by the Honduran government of having organized the caravan. Fuentes was released on Friday; by most accounts, he was covering the caravan in its early stages as a journalist. According to Fuentes and his wife, U. Embassy officials were present for his arrest, which would be highly irregular, not least because the penalty for failing to present oneself to immigration authorities in Guatemala is a thirty-dollar fine but no jail time. A spokesperson for the State Department told me that no U. Embassy personnel were present. The disagreement did not, by any account, involve how the Administration could do more to address the underlying causes of regional migration. Eventually, after national protests and the intervention of a federal judge, the Trump Administration announced an end to the practice of separating families. What I can say is this: there are consequences from coming into a country, namely our country, illegally. The migrants had, at that point, broken no laws and were exercising internationally protected rights to seek refuge. Like others in the past, this caravan will likely disperse as the migrants reach Mexico, which, since 2015, has deported more people back to Central America than the U. Under pressure from the U.

By Wednesday, as they headed north, to the U. By Wednesday, as they headed north, to the U. On the other end of the line, the speaker identified himself, in Spanish, as a U. Jorge said no, but then a thought occurred to him: earlier in the summer, his sister in Guatemala had mentioned that her seventeen-year-old son, Pedro, might travel north to live with his grandparents in the United States. The call between Jorge and the government official lasted less than five minutes. Nationwide, there are currently 13,200 children in O. Shelters have become overcrowded not because more children are fleeing north than in years past but mainly because the Trump Administration has made it more difficult to release them. In April, the O. Those who come forward to claim family members can now be arrested and deported if they are here illegally. As a result, immigrant families have had to make a choice: sponsor children and risk deportation, or keep their distance while children languish in government custody. As families weigh the stakes, children have been spending longer periods of time in detention. After receiving the phone call in August, he told me that he spent a day thinking through his options. It was just a question of how to do it. He and his wife also have a sixteen-year-old daughter in Guatemala who was born just after Jorge arrived in the United States. Without legal papers, Jorge has never been able to travel home to see her. Each of them wore name tags with pseudonyms written in black marker. She left a small town in southern Guatemala ten years ago to follow her husband, who came to the U. Ana, who is trim, with dark hair and big, watchful eyes, cleans office buildings at night. At first, the family had been wary of dealing directly with the federal government, and Ana asked a friend with legal status to sponsor Pedro on their behalf. When the friend declined, Ana realized the family had to take the risk themselves. Ana is illiterate, and the prospect of a protracted bureaucratic process intimidated her; Jorge would help her with the details. Because the government had asked for two contacts, Ana offered to serve as the primary sponsor, with Jorge as the secondary one. He and Ana decided to look for a lawyer, which took about two weeks. After an initial meeting, they decided that Victor should be the secondary sponsor instead. In 2016, after tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors from Central America arrived at the border and overwhelmed federal authorities, the Senate issued a report detailing more than a dozen cases of children who were released to abusive sponsors, because background checks had been relaxed in response to the influx. Vetting sponsors has always been predicated on protecting children, not policing sponsors; in the past, officials from the Department of Health and Human Services made a point of stressing their independence from the Department of Homeland Security. Early last month, she attended a mandatory information session for sponsors, held at a nearby immigration court. After a federal judge ordered the government to reunite the families, releasing the separated children from the O. The Trump Administration is said to be holding some older teen-agers in O. He was close to his eighteenth birthday, and the judge said he was not dangerous and did not need to be held. When he turned eighteen, they just transferred him to adult detention. During our conversation, Victor sat with his arms folded across his chest, his gaze drifting. We want him here. He has twice been a finalist for a Livingston Award, and he received the 2018 Immigration Journalism Prize from the French-American Foundation. On the ninth day of every month, she would receive a hundred and ninety dollars from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, informally known as food stamps. The benefits belonged to her eleven-year-old daughter, who is a U. The following weekend, Arelii would go to the supermarket. They are both undocumented and ineligible for food stamps, as is their son, who was nine when he came to the United States and is now twenty and in the process of applying for his green card. She had heard rumors, on television and on Facebook, that the President had a new plan to punish immigrants who were receiving public benefits. If a family accepted them in any form, Arelii was told, no one in the household could qualify for a green card. Although these rumors were inaccurate, they were based on a widely reported development: the Trump Administration was considering ways to revamp the access that immigrants have to public benefits. To give my son a chance, I had to take something away from my daughter. Non-cash benefits, such as food stamps and Medicaid, will now count, too. The threshold for how much public assistance the government can flag as excessive is also being lowered considerably. At the same time, a broad new array of personal factors, including financial status, education, and family size, will count against immigration petitions in unprecedented ways. By then, she and her family had gone more than a month without their food stamps. They can only see each other on the weekends. Of the nearly eighteen million immigrant families who received public benefits between 2014 and 2016, some seven million—about forty-one per cent—live in California and New York. This is still only a proposal! Arelii understood the advice, but she was reluctant to take any chances. No one knows anything for sure. By 1998, the use of food stamps by noncitizen families had fallen by forty per cent, with particularly steep drop-offs about sixty per cent among refugees, even though they remained eligible for the assistance. The effect was especially pronounced on children who were U. Barbara Strack, who recently retired from her role as an official at D. Maria was the third person that day to come to the office to try to cancel her benefits. She and her husband are currently applying for their green cards, and they receive food stamps and emergency Medicaid coverage for their eight-year-old daughter, who is a U. S citizen and has special needs. An immigration lawyer had told them, inaccurately, that they needed to end their benefits in order to stay qualified for legal permanent residency. He has twice been a finalist for a Livingston Award, and he received the 2018 Immigration Journalism Prize from the French-American Foundation. On July 6th, we drove to the home of a family friend in Port Salut, a beautiful coastal town about thirty miles from where we were staying, to watch Brazil face Belgium in the quarter-finals. Now the items would be practically worthless, and she was deep in debt. Her anguish was a reminder that the fate of some of the poorest people in Haiti is linked to factors far beyond their control. Even the price of kerosene, which was used to light most homes in the Haitian countryside, was going up by fifty-one per cent. We encountered nearly a dozen on the way, most of them made from piles of rocks and flaming tires and being guarded by anxious young men. At a back-road riverbed—a last-resort detour—a young moto-taxi-driver, explaining why he and his friends would not let us through, detailed how the sudden gas hike would chip away at the life they were struggling to build for themselves and their families. Days of nationwide protests followed nonetheless. His Prime Minister resigned. But a lingering flame of anger remained. Or, at least, rekindled. The Petrocaribe agreement, which Haiti signed in 2006, allowed the Haitian government to buy oil from Venezuela, pay sixty per cent of the purchase price within ninety days, and then defer the rest of the debt, at a one-per-cent interest rate, over twenty-five years. This debt has grown to almost two billion dollars over the past decade. That date will mark the two hundred and fifteenth anniversary of the Battle of Vertières, the last major conflict fought before Haiti won its independence from France, under the leadership of, among others, the Haitian founding father Jean-Jacques Dessalines, whose death was also being remembered on Wednesday. But it seems highly unlikely that his government will perform a satisfactory investigation into the missing Petrocaribe funds—a probe that could implicate himself, his predecessor, and their friends and colleagues.

Anti-corruption street protests have become larger and more frequent since the summer, when grievances spread widely online. My mother was entrusting my younger brother and me to the care of my uncle and his wife, who would look after us until our parents could establish permanent residency—they had both travelled on tourist visas—in the United States. She leaned down and tearfully unballed my fists so that my uncle could peel me off her. As my brother dropped to the floor, bawling, my mother hurried away, her tear-soaked face buried in her hands. We would not see her again for three years. When I was a teen-ager, I asked my parents about their immigration choices. Whenever they were eating, my mother used to say, they wondered whether my brother and I were eating, too. When they went to bed at night, they wondered if my brother and I were sleeping. Even though we spoke to them on a scheduled call once a week, they never stopped worrying and longing for us. After travelling to Haiti and speaking to Jean-Claude Baby Doc Duvalier, the dictator whom these migrants had fled, Giuliani concluded that the Haitians had nothing to fear and should be deported. It is not easy to enter such places. At many facilities, one can get only a curated view, either alongside a group of journalists or by attaching oneself to a congressional delegation. Many of these young people had experienced such horrible trauma during their long journey from Central America to the U. Up to six women spent twenty-four hours a day in one room, often with crying babies and toddlers, while armed guards patrolled the halls. Customs and Border Protection officers verbally, physically, and sexually abusing migrant children. The cases cited include accounts of children being Tased, punched, kicked in the head and ribs. Young migrants complained of being denied food and water and medical care, of being strip-searched and threatened with rape and murder while confined to freezing and unsanitary rooms. His House has also been accused, by some of the U. His House staff has denied that children are mistreated there. My friend works in the state foster system, and said that places like His House are a last resort for the children in her care. Her team is now representing some of the children who have been taken from their parents at the border. One of their clients, Ana, a three-year-old girl from Guatemala, was separated from her father in July, 2017. They were held together in a crowded facility for two days. Nobody told him where she was being taken. He was told that they would return her to him when he was released. Before he was deported, in early December, 2017, he asked if he could take her with him. He has not seen her since. If not for Valdes and her team, and other immigration lawyers like them, many migrant children, like Ana, would have to find their ways through the immigration system alone. Valdes uses a coloring book, designed by her organization and illustrated by a local artist, to help small children like Ana make sense of the immigration process. Another page shows a map of the United States, to help the children identify where they are. S citizens and others from being reunited with their spouses and children from five Muslim-majority countries. At the moment, everyone seems to be paying attention. We couldn't give blood for our own father. It was, in seven hundred words, poignant and personal and epically appropriate, considering his fate. The horrific details of his murder and dismemberment have had an effect he would never have imagined—putting into serious question the fate of a Saudi leader, the state of U. The repercussions are only beginning. Saudi Arabia may be the most cruel and ruthless government in the region, but it uses tactics embraced by dictators, sheikhs, and Presidents across twenty-two countries. On Thursday, the U. But no foreign government is addressing the broader political practices in any other country, or any other case, in the region. And, in some cases, notably Egypt, conditions have deteriorated. In 2014, he was sentenced to ten years in prison, a thousand lashes, and a fine that exceeded a quarter million dollars. When the Canadian Foreign Minister, Chrystia Freeland, tweeted her concern about the Badawi siblings, in August, the kingdom responded by expelling the Canadian Ambassador, recalling its envoy, freezing all new trade and investment, suspending flights by the state airline to Toronto, and ordering thousands of Saudi students to leave Canada. In the United Arab Emirates, Ahmed Mansoor, who ran a Web site focussed on reforms, was sentenced to ten years for social-media comments calling for reform. The meetings seemed jovial. He condemned criticism of the monarchy. We just went through that with Justice Kavanaugh and he was innocent all the way as far as I'm concerned. So we have to find out what happened. The notion that this is a rogue operation is preposterous. One of the men, Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, was photographed with M. This guy is a wrecking ball. He can never be a world leader on the world stage. The Saudis are also now central to his foreign policy. They buy apartments from me. They spend forty million dollars, fifty million dollars. Am I supposed to dislike them? I like them very much. Morgan Chase, Ford, Mastercard, and Blackrock. On the Hill, Democrats chastised the President for broadcasting the Saudi version of events, which he first mentioned out of the blue to reporters, on Monday. The Saudi press posted photos of Bezos in an open-necked shirt and the prince, having shed his Saudi robes, in a Western suit and dark-red tie. Both men beamed as they talked business and investment opportunities. Along the way, the crown prince also schmoozed with Oprah Winfrey, Bill Gates, both former Presidents Bush, former President Bill Clinton, Kobe Bryant, Michael Bloomberg, Morgan Freeman, Henry Kissinger, Dwayne the Rock Johnson, and Richard Branson, among others. He wooed Google, Apple, Disney, Lockheed, Snapchat, and AMC. The Khashoggi affair has solidified the negative narrative in wide cross-sections of U. And we would be very upset and angry if that were the case. As of this moment, they deny it, and they deny it vehemently. Could it be them? When his real-estate business was in trouble, he sold his yacht and a stake in the Plaza Hotel to a Saudi royal. He also sold Manhattan real estate to Saudi investors and, before becoming President, explored opening a hotel in the port city of Jeddah. Since Trump took office, Saudi Arabia has been the central player in his foreign policy. His first stop on his first foreign tour as President was in its capital city, Riyadh, where he was fêted with pomp and ceremony. His son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, has developed particularly close ties with M. The kingdom also initially denied that Saudi citizens had anything to do with the September 11th attacks, blaming an Israeli intelligence plot. The law, passed in 2016 and named for a Russian whistle-blower who died in detention, calls for the United States to impose sanctions on human-rights violators in any country. It stipulates that action should be taken within four months. On Sunday, it issued another one—with no name or office attached to it—threatening countermeasures if any government acts against it. In November, the kingdom summoned the Lebanese Prime Minister, Saad Hariri, and ordered him to resign on Saudi state television. He remained under virtual house arrest for two weeks. He was freed to return home—and resume office—only after the U. And the Saudi war on Yemen, launched shortly after M. It may have been rattled partly by the big names in U. Uber and Viacom dropped out of the conference, as did the tech investor Steve Case. And, in 1973, Saudi Arabia was a key part of the oil boycott on the United States, after Washington supported Israel during the fourth Middle East war. He took up residency in Washington after he opted for exile in mid-2017. But the rippling impact during the past two weeks has been sweeping—with more to come. The latest evidence pointing to M. His refusal to compromise his values prompted the Saudi government, in 2016, to silence him, and it led him to conclude, the following year, that he needed to flee to America. I saw Jamal whenever I visited Washington. Jamal and I spoke for the last time six days before he vanished. He was writing to tell me about the latest crackdown on the Saudi press, which had led to several reporters being imprisoned. He sent me clips from Saudi newspapers documenting their detention. When the crown prince visited the United States earlier this year, he was fêted in Hollywood and Silicon Valley, on Wall Street, and, of course, by the Trump White House, as a messiah—in the mold of Gorbachev or Gandhi. It was ugly, but no one seemed to mind. First came the tale, told to me by a confidant of the crown prince, of a young M. When the official balked, M. On the Saudi streets, M. A spokesperson for Hariri denied that he had been beaten. That same year, M. The scheme fell apart when American officials forcibly intervened. Since 2016, the campaign has consisted mainly of indiscriminate bombing with American weapons. The toll so far: at least sixteen thousand civilians killed, widespread famine, and a plague of cholera. Imprisoned in a five-star hotel, princes and other royals were held captive until they signed over substantial shares of their fortunes. Among those detained was Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, whose holding company owns large shares of many American companies, including Twenty-First Century Fox. No doubt some of those fortunes were obtained unethically, but M. I heard credible reports that at least some of the men held in the Ritz-Carlton were tortured. But there was no luxury that he denied himself. In 2015, while vacationing in the South of France, he bought a yacht, the Serene, from a Russian vodka tycoon, for five hundred and fifty million dollars. He bought a château west of Paris, with a cinema and a moat with a submerged glass chamber for viewing carp. When I asked to interview M. So far, he has been spectacularly wrong, and the slow drip of information during the past two weeks—from the Turkish government and American officials—has rendered the denials of M. At a glance, it seems unlikely that King Salman would part with M. The humiliation for the House of Saud might be too much to endure. Even if Salman were inclined to remove M. Nearly all of M. He has written about the murder of a journalist in Pakistan, the uprisings in Yemen, the war in Afghanistan, the crises in Syria and Lebanon, the Prime Minister of Turkey, and a troubled Iraq war veteran who tracked down the surviving members of a family his unit had opened fire on. He has received numerous prizes, including two George Polk Awards and three Overseas Press Club Awards.

On the Hill, Democrats chastised the President for broadcasting the Saudi version of events, which he first mentioned out of the blue to reporters, on Monday. His fiancée, who waited outside for eleven hours, said he never emerged. Erdoğan told reporters that his government is investigating the event. State Department also said it is closely following the case. Another report claimed that his body had been taken back to Saudi Arabia. But he became increasingly critical of the government and, in June, 2017, decided to leave. Three Saudi princes have been abducted since King Salman, M. You are not safe. There is no law that can protect you. The premises are sovereign territory, but we will allow them to enter and search and do whatever they want to do. We have nothing to hide. He did not reply. Since his father became king, in 2015, M. We have been enormously proud to publish his writing. Such an assassination within the grounds of the consulate, which is territory under Saudi Arabian jurisdiction, would amount to an extrajudicial execution. This case sends a shockwave among Saudi Arabian human rights defenders and dissidents everywhere, eroding any notion of seeking safe haven abroad. I have left my home, my family and my job, and I am raising my voice. To do otherwise would betray those who languish in prison. I can speak when so many cannot. I want you to know that Saudi Arabia has not always been as it is now. We Saudis deserve better. He has not been seen since. Turkish intelligence believes that he was abducted or assassinated on the orders of the Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman. Forecasters had been tracking the storm for nearly a week, and it was growing rapidly. But the Florida Department of Corrections, which oversees the incarceration of almost a hundred thousand people, chose not to evacuate several state prisons, even those that fell within the evacuation zone. On Tuesday, the F. Yet some of those prisons were themselves in the path of the storm. One prisoner told his wife, Heather, that he was moved from a low-security facility with only a pillow and a blanket. He described strong winds and power outages, and said the staff had not boarded the windows. He e-mailed again an hour later. He said that correctional officers had warned everyone that the roof might give way. Minutes later, the roof had collapsed. Over the phone, she heard men yelling out the names and phone numbers of their loved ones, hoping that she could let them know that they were alive. Tanner Harden, a college student in Alabama, said his father, who works in maintenance at Gulf C. All inmates have access to food and water. Facility by facility damage assessments are being conducted. Some facilities have sustained damage. In thousands of comments, they shared official updates, posted links to news stories, and relayed accounts from loved ones. Growing desperate, she tried e-mailing a state prison official. Do they have food to feed them? Please, I beg you to send people to help them. Governor Rick Scott, who had argued for F. Then Michelle Glady, the F. One woman, whose husband spent the storm in Gulf C. Jessica got a call from her husband, at Gulf C. But there was a hole in the roof, and they had no power. And the water was not drinkable. Glady said the prison system had enough working buses, and blamed the slow pace on road conditions. For security reasons, their destinations were not shared in public databases until after the evacuations had occurred. When families finally spoke to their loved ones, they heard harrowing stories. They also learned that incarcerated people had been forced to abandon what little property they had, including Bibles and legal paperwork. Brian and Cathy, who asked me not to use their last names for fear of retaliation, said that their relatives were not allowed to bring photographs or documents when they left Gulf C. Get on the bus. Ensuring the inmates have all their property and legal documents is a current priority. She was at a birthday party, trying not to feel anxious, when he called; she scribbled on a pack of batteries so that she would remember the details. Then she shared an update in the Facebook group. Her son had been driven past Panama City, where the damage was catastrophic. He had not been able to take a shower or change his clothes since before the storm, he said. Aronson, who is sixty-two and previously worked as a mental-health case manager, worried that prisoners would suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. Hurricane Michael, she said, exposed a nationwide problem. He had made it through, sleeping on his mattress atop a set of lockers. Melissa Haymon, who had e-mailed with her son on Wednesday, just as the storm reached land, next heard news from him on Sunday. He called his father to say that he had not been injured, and that, despite structural damage and flooding, the F. Haymon also belatedly received an e-mail that her son had tried to send on Wednesday, in the midst of the storm. Gross is a writer and radio producer in New York. Their loved ones feared for their safety for days. He called it Just the Cook, a reference to his pre-restaurant-owning days, when people would come to his house for dinner, and ask him if he was a professional chef. Last week, Hall finished what had been a months-long process of moving his restaurant—a two-story, red-and-white houseboat full of kitchen equipment—to a new location, off the western tip of Panama City, in Saint Andrew Bay. The location included a large pavilion just onshore, where patrons could sit. On Tuesday, with Hurricane Michael heading for the city, Hall moved his restaurant again, anchoring it beside Hathaway Bridge, which connects Panama City to Panama City Beach, in an attempt to give it a better chance of surviving the storm. Later that day, he and his wife and daughter drove four hours north to Wetumpka, Alabama, near Montgomery, where friends of friends had offered them a place to stay. This account has been edited and condensed. The fuselage protrudes lower than the foam, and had become lodged in the sand. This just became a huge ordeal, because the boat would not move. But she will not move. I have friends coming out. I had probably ten very large, grown men out there helping me. We had two or three boats at a time pulling on her. Christopher shows up in a twenty-foot Mako with a hundred-and-fifty-horsepower engine on the back. And it was like Captain America to the rescue. The boat would barely move. We threw two incredibly heavy chain anchors—we throw those off the bow, we throw the remaining anchors off the stern. A friend of ours, his entire bar is a concrete block, and it lasted throughout the storm, he was inviting us to stay there. She was the smart one on this. I ended up with two pairs of shorts and two T-shirts, and they ended up with bags of clothes. So we did that. So it was a very exhausting day. So we started receiving information through our phones, and watching TV on our phones, the Weather Channel. It peeled the entire roof off. But that was our whole lives. More than a million people—including many who would not normally evacuate, such as hospitalized patients and the staff of military bases—fled the region. Bryan Stirling, the director of the South Carolina Department of Corrections, or S. North Carolina and Virginia evacuated numerous prisons and jails along the coast. On Monday, the official S. Twitter account posted a photograph of incarcerated men shovelling sand into bags. Correctional officers are refusing to let prisoners store extra water, he said. He confirmed that prisoners were not allowed to store water in bottles and said that even if prisons had been evacuated earlier this week, the storm might have changed course. South Carolina prisons are known to be understaffed and overcrowded; earlier this year, state correctional officers took hours to intervene in a riot that killed seven men. Over the phone, Mike described the terror he felt, unable to see outside as the water rose. As of Friday, no information about the hurricane had been posted to the S. Stephens, a Myrtle Beach resident whose husband is incarcerated, said she had to call S. On Tuesday, after numerous calls and e-mailed questions, Dexter Lee sent me a short statement. All institutions have generators with the ability to operate for 10 days without refueling. She said that a prison staff member later told her that her building had flooded up to the third floor. The storm is expected to move southwest slowly, weakening as it dumps many inches of rain across the region. Parts of South Carolina currently face tropical-storm conditions, with winds around fifty miles per hour and a forecast of several consecutive days of rain. On Thursday night, Albert said the mood in his prison was sombre. At any given moment, it could be any of us. Gross is a writer and radio producer in New York. His account has been edited and condensed. No lights, no electricity. Now you placed him on a maximum-security unit. That really saved us. I stayed in the cell and prayed. That could have been us.

In Washington, the Department of Justice indicted seven Russian military-intelligence agents for multiple hacking schemes. And the Dutch government disclosed that it had deported four Russian intelligence agents who were caught red-handed, in April, trying to hack the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, an international monitoring agency based in The Hague. Russia is on a clear course of more aggressive behavior toward the West. Administration—these expectations of sanctions against Iran, the political problems in Venezuela. The state is destroyed. Only nineteen per cent now have a positive image of the U. The majority no longer believes that the President will fulfill his campaign promise to better relations with Moscow. President does look weak in their eyes. The President earned his lowest score in Mexico—a country he wants to wall off—with only six per cent. The poll found that people in the twenty-five nations surveyed had more confidence in both Putin thirty per cent over all and Chinese President Xi Jinping thirty-four per cent to do the right thing than they did in Trump twenty-seven per cent. Border Patrol agents apprehended them and moved them through a series of detention centers. A month earlier, the Trump Administration had announced, amid public outcry over its systemic separation of migrant families at the border, that it would halt the practice. But, at a packed processing hub, Christian was taken from Noehmi and placed in a cage with toddlers. Noehmi remained in a cold holding cell, clutching Helen. Soon, she recalled, a plainclothes official arrived and informed her that she and Helen would be separated. The adults in the family were fitted with electronic ankle bracelets and all were released, pending court dates. Noehmi and Jeny panicked. Unable to breathe amid her distress, Noehmi checked herself into a local hospital, where doctors gave her medication to calm her down. Helen was given a pack of crayons and spent the summer coloring patriotic images: busts of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, the torch on the Statue of Liberty. Tania Chavez, a strategy leader for the organization, met with the family to hear their story. As the number of separations soared past two thousand, and their wrenching details surfaced, hundreds of thousands of Americans protested in the streets. Laura Bush said that the practice broke her heart. On June 20th, the President issued an executive order purporting to end the practice. According to recent Department of Justice numbers—released because of an ongoing A. Chavez believes that, through misclassification, many kids have largely disappeared from public view, and from official statistics, with the federal government showing little urgency to hasten reunifications. Customs and Border Protection did not respond to requests for comment. Delgado had grown up in the Rio Grande Valley, a child of migrant workers. He left the region for a life in corporate law, practicing in New York and in the United Arab Emirates. There, a judge granted Noehmi and her relatives more time to apply for asylum. Toward the end of the hearing, Delgado brought up Helen. Both he and the government prosecutor had no idea that Helen existed, let alone where she was being held. Delgado managed to arrange a supervised visit between Noehmi and her granddaughter. After an hour, the two were separated again; again, they both cried. A case worker offered Noehmi a chance to ride the elevator downstairs with Helen before the girl was taken away. But she raced down to meet Helen outside and hugged her one more time before Helen was loaded into a minivan and carted back to foster care. She ate only a few spoonfuls of beef stew each day. Again, she sought hospitalization, for anxiety. Tania Chavez asked if the family wanted to escalate their tactics for getting Helen back. Chavez reached out to Alida Garcia, the vice-president of advocacy for the group FWD. On August 31st, they began to circulate a petition addressing the O. Right away, they began receiving calls from O. Paola Mendoza, an artist and prominent voice for immigrant rights, tweeted about the petition, as did the actress Alyssa Milano. The whole family held one another, and then went home. We have learned we cannot take this Administration at their word. While in custody, she was also given crayons and asked to color patriotic images, including one of the Statue of Liberty. Her reporting on the high-risk use of young people as confidential informants in the war on drugs received a George Polk Award and the Molly National Journalism Prize. It was clear from the start that the policy was cruel, heartless, and unnecessary. Although there has been a spike in the number of asylum seekers in recent months, the over-all number of undocumented immigrants coming into the United States from Mexico and other Latin American countries is significantly lower than it was a decade ago. He reversed course because he had no choice politically. And in the face of mass outrage, bipartisan opposition, and condemnation from church groups and other civil-society institutions, the child-separation policy was no longer sustainable. That is precisely the outcome that the U. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit deemed illegal in a 2016 ruling about the Flores settlement. Trump only went this far because he was facing a public-relations disaster and a rebellion from Republicans fearful of losing control of Congress in the midterms. Only a majority of Republicans supported the policy. And this poll was taken before the latest reports and pictures from inside the child-detention centers. Less than twenty-four hours later, he finally dropped this pretense. The political crisis is by no means over, nor is the migrant crisis. Until the children in the detention camps are reunited with their parents, and a reasonable system is reinstituted for dealing with families detained at the border, there is no cause for celebration. And for that we have to thank the media, some civic and religious institutions, and the conscience of the American public. After Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the zero-tolerance policy, in May, the number of children who were separated from their parents quickly grew. Civil-rights groups monitored the situation, and the news media began to focus on it. Before long, some religious leaders expressed concerns, and so did some elected politicians, including Senator Jeff Merkley, Democrat of Oregon, who tried to visit a detention center in Brownsville, Texas, but got turned away. This was real news, not fake news, and, ultimately, it forced Trump to back down. Now the father was in an immigration-detention facility in Arizona, awaiting deportation. He had no idea where his child was. They were looking at the record of someone whose first name was spelled differently, and whose date of birth was a month off. Under the zero-tolerance policy, border crossers are arrested and charged with a crime before being placed in immigration detention. If they came with their children, the children are turned over to O. No protocols have been put in place for keeping track of parents and children concurrently, for keeping parents and children in contact with each other while they are separated, or for eventually reuniting them. Immigration lawyers, public defenders, and advocates along the border have been trying to fill the void. The number had come from a neighbor who had also been separated from a child in the U. Eventually, Kephart tracked down a case manager at the second facility. Several months ago, as cases of family separation started surfacing across the country, immigrant-rights groups began calling for the Department of Homeland Security D. At the time, D. Erik Hanshew, a federal public defender in El Paso, told me that the problems begin at the moment of arrest. The kids get moved around to different facilities. Immigration and Customs Enforcement—the agency at the D. It is a call, often with a very young child. A call is a Band-Aid. For now, just knowing the whereabouts of a child is a start. He has twice been a finalist for a Livingston Award, and he received the 2018 Immigration Journalism Prize from the French-American Foundation.

The fact is, even if Judge Moore did not engage in any extramarital sexual relations with any of these women there are many in our culture, including Christians, who would condemn him solo for dating teenage girls while he was in his early thirties and this is the question we will tackle in the article.
