    OPEC exit frees Qatar from US legal concerns

    DUBAI/DOHA (Reuters) - Even before taking over Qatar’s energy policy in a government reshuffle last month, Qatar Petroleum (QP) CEO Saad al-Kaabi had long wanted the Gulf state to leave OPEC.

Proposed US legislation known as NOPEC (No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act) could expose members of the oil exporters club to antitrust lawsuits, a risk for QP at a time it is planning to invest billions more in the United States.

    "We have the tape," US President Donald Trump finally admitted that there is a tape-recording of the murder of Jamal Khashoggi - but then he immediately added: "I don't want to hear the tape, no reason for me to hear the tape." When he was asked why, he said: "Because it's a suffering tape, it's a terrible tape. I've been fully briefed on it. There's no reason for me to hear it."  He elaborated further: "I know everything that went on in the tape without having to hear it ... It was very violent, very vicious and terrible." It was good to see the man who had no qualms about dropping "the mother of all bombs" (MOAB) on Afghanistan or arming Saudi Arabia to the teeth to slaughter Yemenis had suddenly
