CNN: PETRAEUS TO TESTIFY HE KNEW LIBYA WAS TERRORISM 'ALMOST IMMEDIATELY'
Breitbart ^

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.

I'm left to guess that this “high ranking source” is Petraeus himself?

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,

Petraeus also told this source he believed the CIA talking points given to Susan Rice came from within the White House or Administration.

amend?

“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..”

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.

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.

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.

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.”

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.

I agree...everyone keeps going on about his wife's "big" job and his pension. If he spills the beans on Barry & Co., he would become a national hero.

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.

You pretty much nailed it.

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.

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).
