Fox News reports that General Petraeus appeared to pass out during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing today.
The head of Central Command was in the midst of a dialogue with Arizona Sen. John McCain when he slumped over the witness table. Several officials gathered around Petraeus, who was able to stand up and walk out on his own.

General Petraeus said that he was feeling "light-headed", and joked that it was due to dehydration, not Senator McCain's question.
