US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was in Saudi Arabia today for talks with officials about a wide range of topics, from the war in Syria to the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. And Canada granted asylum to the 18-year-old Saudi woman, Rahaf al-Qunun, over the weekend. Host Marco Werman speaks with Bessma Momani, a political science professor at the University of Waterloo and Balsillie School of International Affairs, about what message this sends to Saudi Arabia and how this move could influence other countries.
