“A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths are a statistic” – Joseph Stalin

The liberal mainstream media outrage at Biden visiting Saudi Arabia boldly underscores how much the liberal press opts out of American war statistics when it’s convenient for their narrative and self-preservation. 

I’m specifically addressing the news drama surrounding the lack of accountability the Saudi Crown Prince has had in the death of Washington Post contributor Khashoggi (59), who was brutally assassinated by his government, according to US intelligence reports. 

Khashoggi, an outspoken critic of the Saudi regime, was last seen entering the Saudi Arabian embassy in Istanbul on October 2, 2018 and is rumored to have been chopped to pieces and disposed of like in an episode of Ozark.

So why are American liberal news outlets so outraged when by the killing of a 59-year-old rogue Saudi citizen refugee in the US,  who primarily lived a life of privilege? And not so much when America has killed dozens, maybe hundreds, of small children in Afghanistan, Africa, and Iraq and written it off as acceptable collateral damage? 

Where was the full court press coverage when the Obama-Biden administration ordered the assassination of a teenage American boy visiting his family in Yemen? Who was only guilt was being born the son of a radical American Islamist named Anwar Al-Awlaki? 

With a straight face, how can Biden confront the Saudi Prince on Khashoggi when America has a long list of innocent people killed and more held without due process in Cuba and other CIA black sites?
