Ya think? So some think Petraeus might have lied do they? Of course he lied. He couldn't affored to tell the truth about holding prisoners in Libya which was a violation of Obama's Executive Order prohibiting it. He couldn't afford to tell the truth about not furnishing the necessary security as requested for months. He couldn't afford to tell the truth about watching it on live feed and doing nothing to help as 4 Americans were murdered. That's bad politics and after all there was the Re-Election of Barack Obama at stake.

It's important to note, in addition to your remarks, that the American media couldn't afford to cover any of this stuff either, for the same reason - Obama's credibility and re-election were at stake.

After resigning his position as the head of the CIA last week and postponing his congressional testimony originally scheduled for Thursday, General David Petraeus has agreed to testify about the 9/11 terrorist attack in Benghazi before the House and Senate Intelligence Committees. Acting CIA Director Michael Morell is still scheduled to testify publicly about the attack tomorrow.

After Petraeus' resignation, lawmakers complained that the scandal was no reason they shouldn't hear from the man at the helm of the CIA when CIA operatives came under attack alongside State Department employees in Benghazi last month.
