He'll Testify

Military leaders don’t normally testify “against” their Commander in Chief, regardless of party. He’ll fall on his sword.

I disagree, Patraeus has nothing to lose and a reputation to salvage by telling the truth.

He will only tell the truth if he is granted immunity for his previous perjury. Otherwise he will stand there and take the 5th.

I think Petraeus is more honorable that that, but nobody knows until this all goes down.

That actually makes sense.

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.
