Washington Post publisher: ‘Shameful’ of Pompeo to spread ‘vile falsehoods’ about Khashoggi



The publisher of The Washington Post on Tuesday slammed former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for his comments on U.S.-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a columnist at the paper who was killed by Saudi Arabia in 2018. Pompeo, who is considering a run for the Republican nomination for president in 2024, in a new book dismissed the idea that Khashoggi was “a Saudi Arabian Bob Woodward” and downplayed the worldwide outcry that followed his slaying as “faux outrage … fueled by the media.”
