The brutal killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi produced a public opinion backlash against all things Saudi and left US – Saudi relations at their weakest in recent memory. In a tumultuous region where non-state actors, rogue regimes, and global powers pose a direct challenge to American interests, what is the path forward for the longstanding US-Saudi alliance? How will this tragic event reshape this otherwise vital relationship and impact developments in the broader Middle East?
