The Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a confirmation hearing for retired General John Abizaid and Matthew Tueller, President Trump’s choices to be the respective ambassadors to Saudi Arabia and Iraq. The two nominees faced a series of questions from lawmakers on a variety of topics regarding Middle East security and politics, many focused on Saudi Arabia’s interests and actions in Yemen’s civil conflict and Iran’s efforts to influence Iraqi politics. Senators also questioned the Trump administration’s response to the killing of Jamal Khashoggi, the U.S. resident and Saudi journalist and critic who was killed by Saudi agents at an embassy in Istanbul. close
