To explain its version of events, that Khashoggi's killers were Saudi officials gone rogue, the kingdom brought out its suave, American-educated foreign minister, Adel Al-Jubeir. The larger the scale the better you can do in some of those scenarios. So Prakash is hoping that the licensing of Arc is just the beginning.
