CIA Four-Dimensional Chess?

By Robert Wenzel

The Trump-hating CIA has put out an accurate report for the first time since it was founded. It has reported that the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman was directly behind the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.

To what do we owe this leap into truth?

Notes the Washington Post:
The CIA’s assessment, in which officials have said they have high confidence, is the most definitive to date linking Mohammed to the operation and complicates the Trump administration’s efforts to preserve its relationship with a close ally.
What is curious is this point:

CIA analysts believe he has a firm grip on power and is not in danger of losing his status as heir to the throne despite the Khashoggi scandal. “The general agreement is that he is likely to survive,” the official said, adding that Mohammed’s role as the future Saudi king is “taken for granted.”
If this is true, the public outing of MbS does nothing but make it more difficult for the US to get along with a key oil producer.

Would the CIA throw havoc into the global oil price picture to make things more difficult for Trump?

To ask the question is to answer it. #CIAFourDimensionalChess
