What is it to be a free writer in Saudi Arabia: Jamal Khashoggi explains

He said in an interview with Al-Hurra TV that he is a free writer and then added (verbatim): "We as Saudis listen (to orders) and obey.  The state ordered and directed and we follow the directives of the stare and we stand always in loyalty and support for the government."  Kid you not.  Khashoggi is often identified in the Western media as "a Saudi journalist" or as a "liberal Saudi".
