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.
So will there be a big break on something else after 5 pm on Friday to bury the latest from Petraeus.
Unless Petraeus testifies that it was a spontaneous terrorist attack.
Someone’s searching Ft. Marcy Park right now.
In other words, Obama failed in his duties as chief executive and commander in chief to secure the facility as requested and people died. He then ordered his subordinates to lie to cover it up to save his reelection efforts. And no doubt tried to pressure or blackmail Petraeus to remain quiet about it. All impeachable offenses.
Duh, he’s not a liar nor retarded.
By the way, I hats his the release what is going to be said before it is said. Hearings are fake enough; I don’t need second-degree fake news.
I'll believe it when I read it.....
I might think the word "PERJURY" might be mentioned as well.
If it’s true it would be both hugh and series. But I’ve seen the media dangle these things before us in the past; when the opposite comes to pass it’s “see, there was nothing at all to the whole thing.”
Wag the Dog in the Persian Gulf, perhaps. Or, they’ll out Lindsay Graham.
No,for CIA Chiefs..it’s stay off out of canoes because you might drown.
looks like a picked a good day to stop sniffing glue
A couple of days ago I found myself thinking...
Fort Marcy Park
Bullet hole, side of head
No gun found
Yeah, read the whole article. it is all pretty weaslely. Nothing is clear. It says Petraeus knew almost immediately, but the numerous differing reports clouded the picture and the White House “fog of war” explanation began to break down pretty quickly. yada, yada, yada.
looks like I picked a good day to stop sniffing glue
No, that’s a euphemism. Weasel words are ones that have been deprived of all meaning though their outside appearance stays the same, like how weasels are said to suck out the inside of eggs while leaving the shell mostly intact. A classic example is “social,” which is routinely placed before other words (insurance, justice, conscience, etc.) to make people feel good or win arguments and influence people without adding meaning.
Maybe this man has some honor after all. We will have to wait and see.
That's what Obama wants you to think.
The quote comes from a Rat Democrat Congressman from Maryland who claims to know what Petraeus said at a closed hearing.
How on earth do you trust that Petraeus actually said those words?
It’s a different ballgame when you are put under oath. Petraeus was not under oath when he gave his “spontaneous eruption” story to Congress back in September. This time I’m sure Congress will swear him in and the consequences for him lying now will be different.
wow...! OMG...would not have guessed this in 100 years.
Will he spill the beans about the Obama Bengazi WATERBOARDING...?
What worry? He will probably get a 10M book offer.
In a sane country, maybe Petraeus could be a national hero. In the USSA? Not a chance. The media will cover it up, make distractions, do damage control, and inevitably assure that he’s remembered as a philandering, incompetent racist.
Maybe so, but Petraeus can’t be the only person in the world who knows the truth. Others will come forward if given immunity (if they don’t run into sharp-tipped umbrellas laced with polonium while canoeing in the creek in Ft. Marcy Park at night).
Uh, the date alone is significant evidence.
I do not trust anyone who works for Obama, first off. This guy did not resign after Benghazi, if he were very upset about happened he would have.
If Petraeus tells the truth - or is planning on telling the truth - we'll know because the press will start barbecuing him.
Yep, things always happen late on Fridays......so much so that it’s hard to follow events that in themselves are constantly changing.
