Skip to comments.CNN: PETRAEUS TO TESTIFY HE KNEW LIBYA WAS TERRORISM 'ALMOST IMMEDIATELY'
Posted on 11/15/2012 4:29:22 PM PST by hole_n_one
Just a few minutes ago on CNN, Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr reported that a high-placed source informed her that former CIA Chief David Petraeus will use his upcoming testimony to amend his previous testimony. According to this source, Petraeus will tell the closed door congressional hearing that he knew "almost immediately" that the September 11 anniversary attack on our Libyan consulate was a terrorist attack committed by the al-Qaeda-linked militia Ansar Al Sharia.

wowsers - things gonna get mighty hot at the WH now.
If the word ‘BLACKMAIL’ comes up, it’s a whole new ballgame...
Does he even make it to the hearing?
Not if the White House press corp gets to ask the questions.
Benghazi won’t even come up...
Amend? Weasel wording.
I didnt think this would happen.I thought he would be worried about his wife’s job and his pension.
high-placed source = Petraeus?
He has been sending mixed messages in a varieties of ways from what I understand. I don’t know what is going on, but I wondered on another thread if he has been playing head games with the admin.
If you had two brain cells, and only one of them functioned properly, you knew it was terrorism from the begining. RPG’s were the dead giveaway,
Knock me over with a feather.
“Yes Senator, when I said it was sparked by a massive protest because of a Youtube video, I really meant that there was no protest and it was an obvious terrorist attack that had nothing to do with a video...”
Senator: “Thank you for clarifying, I want to congratulate you on a job well done..”
Nonsense. Why, they'll probably even send out a crew to interview him...
You pretty much nailed it.
Maybe Patreaus has borrowed Sarah Palin’s b@lls and is going to fight fire with fire. Could get interesting.
My guess is Petraeus isn’t so damaged that he can’t get a major executive job or write a book or two. He’ll do just fine even if the government cuts of his cash flow. He’ll also feel better knowing he told the truth.
He should have told the truth before the election.
But hopefully, he comes clean tomorrow.
Well, now Petraeus knows what our own little Hugo Mugabe will do if you cross him.
Yep. My immediate comment the first time I heard "Youtube" was "horse manure". It's not that nutcases in certain regions wouldn't riot over a video if they were ordered to do so. It's just that the nutcases who riot would not bring their own mortars and RPGs. I did watch the video after that, but it was to see what excuse the terrorists who wanted to attack our ambassador had used, not because I believed the claim even might be true.
