Skip to comments.Petraeus to Try to ‘Put Life Back Together’ Before Any Benghazi Testimony
Posted on 11/11/2012 12:16:36 PM PST by ColdOne
The ranking Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee said hes spoken to former CIA Director David Petraeus about still testifying on the Benghazi attack and the answer is not now.
Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) said on ABCs This Week this morning that his committee wasnt told about the Petraeus investigation reportedly centering around his mistress and emails until Friday, when the generals resignation was announced.
He and I have already had a conversation. You know, hes trying to put his life back together right now and thats what he needs to focus on, Chambliss said in regard to Thursdays closed-door Benghazi hearing, at which Petraeus was supposed to testify.

Sorry, General, but I do not think you deserve that luxury.
Sorry old boy but our nation comes first.
If his wife has any pride at all she’ll clean his clock and then move along with her life, solo. He doesn’t deserve another chance. when i think of all the times she probably spent christmas’s, birthdays, anniversaries, etc...without him...keeping the homefires burning and raising the kids alone only to be paid back with this crap!
I've got the families of four dead americans "trying to put their lives back together". F*** General Infidelity. Drag his sorry butt in front of the committee NOW.
he perjurd himself at his confirmation hearing...the person that appointed him suborned that perjury..as well as others. What did the president know..and when did he know it.
A SIXTY YEAR OLD MAN SHOULD HAVE PUT HIS WIFE AND KIDS BEFORE HE STARTED MESSING AROUND...
You don’t lead a military and play around with chicks 20 years younger than your self...I say he should suffer the result of his actions...
TELL THE TRUTH TO THIS NATION...THEN PUT YOUR WASTED LIFE BACK TOGETHER...
Oh, he deserves it but so what. The General has completely melted down.
Any bets on him living long enough to testify?
“You know, hes trying to put his life back together right now and thats what he needs to focus on”
The investigator now becomes part of the coverup.
Why do you think he **deserves** it?
Sorry I can’t come to your event. You see, I ripped up some newspapers and threw them all over my apartment and then I poured paint all around. So the reason I can’t be there for you is because I have to clean up this mess I just made.
Did his life not unravel when he decided to start fornicating with Paramour Broadwell? That was over a year and a half ago. How many times has he come before a Congressonal committee? So it is only after you get caught that you need to regroup. As long as it was all done in the shadows, did that make it ‘livable’ in his mind? So, lets keep America waiting...no problem.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
“Boo hoo” is a bridge too far for a four star. Get your netherregion in the chair, grow up and answer the questions. You have conglomerated the nefarious plotting and bidding of the Manchurian long enough. Now that you have aided and abetted him into reelection, so now cough something up for your country and get over yourself and your legendary brain.
How much time does it take to pick up his clothes from his soon to be ex-wife’s front lawn and rent a one bedroom apartment? Whatever, that’s the scenerio that would be playing out at this house.
As for the hearing, if they’re letting him and Hillary dictate to them then the fix is already in. Not that we didn’t know that.
Right. He’ll never testify. Jeremy Bourda alert
No jogging in Ft. Marcy Park.
No canoe trips on the Potomac.
No late-night strolls after a glass of wine in a bar.
No Sushi in London.
No plane trips to former Yugoslav republics.
No hanging around in his car while the garage is on fire.
Other than that, he’s free to do what he pleases until his next Congressional testimony.
Dirt nap. Fort Marcy Park.
SERIOUSLY!!!! Put your d$?! Back in your pants, tell your wife you owe her the farm AND a big fat diamond, then get your arse in front of the investigating committee. You worked for US and now we want answers yo arrogant piece of crap!
Something really stinks. There seems to be great pressure to continue a cover up. Same stonewalling pattern as fast & furious
Petraeus already knows if his wife is staying with him or leaving him, so testify you coward!
Doesn’t seem like the GOP has much interest finding the truth.
Cantor passes the buck to FBI, but doesn’t pass it on to his committees?
I agree, he wrecked the life he claims to need time to put back together. The 4 murdered in Benghazi did nothing to ask for their fate. We need answers now.
Not now??? Let’s try this the next time we get a ticket. “Hey judge, not now”
Subpoena his ass.
An outrageous thing for him to say on Veterans Day.
Three of those dead Americans were Veterans.
If his wife has any pride at all shell clean his clock and then move along with her life, solo. He doesnt deserve another chance.
ITA. This guy doesn’t deserve a second chance...cause I gotta feeling, this was not the first/only misstep the General has made.
Re: trip in front of Congressional hearings, what does his personal life have to do with appearing before Congress? Can’t think of any legitimate reason he should not be able to get his backside into these hearings. We deserve to know what went wrong.
"I understand, soldier. Take you time."
My thoughts exactly.....
Practically what I was going to say - at least the WTF part.
He damn life doesn’t matter. What a selfish lying cowardly bastard.
Can’t the House subpoena his ***?
General make big mistake. Officers need to prepare for all contingencies...
Sure seems like it. Petraeus doesn't deserve any time for anything. He should be subpoenaed immediately and picked up if he is a flight risk. Just what is going on here and how big is the cover up and what is being covered up?
Keep away from men in trench-coats with sharp-tipped umbrellas.
The investigator now becomes part of the coverup.
Yes, he does. Now Chambliss and Cantor both have some serious explaining to do. But it won't happen.
Screw that. This man has an obligation to put this world back into some type of order after helping Obama try to destroy it. You scumbags sent Islamic terrorist into a sovereign nation to destabilize a government that was in control of perhaps the world largest active stockpile of chemical WMD’s. No rest for you. No comfort for you.
“world largest active stockpile of chemical WMDs”
...which location, according to Panetta, is no longer known.
My guess is Syria, Gaza and Iran. A few in Mali and Niger.
Another new episode of fantasy “Democrat Valley”. Wow, they are running these faster than any other tv soap opera. Trying to bury Lybiagate.
Might not be such a bad thing. Right now the focus is on the affair. Let that calm down a bit and then have him testify. There’s time now. Obama was re-elected. See what comes out in the hearings. Let that be the news.
His wife is the daughter of a West Point Commandant. Do we think so little of her own fortitude and smarts in this? She has lived in that world her entire life.
What’s happening isn’t about some dame/hot tamale on two legs. It never was.
This is about 0bama. Only 0bama.
That, or he'll head to the Mayo Clinic, where he and Jesse Jr. can commiserate.
Forget that! You took an OATH...... Of course it only matters so that the Obama Regime can cover up. No one seems to care about Sec. State Hillary’s (er..) Relationship with Huma....
Why did Cantor not pass this information to his committees to find the
Truth and determine if Betrayus, the CIA Director had been blackmailed
Or compromised?. Isn’t that w hat Cogressional Oversight is all about?
