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.

I’m all for giving him a second chance. Yes, we are disappointed but he’s a flawed human like all of us.
Hope he lives up to our expectations tomorrow.
Looks like the Senators WILL BE gunning for you Obozo...better get your impeachment defense team together.
Impeach. Impeach. Impeach.
Where are all those “investigative” reporters when you need one?
He better go into hiding until tomorrow and have around the clock security there after.........God’s BLESSING and forgiveness General.........this may be what is meant by “ satan meant it for evil but GOD meant it for GOOD.....”
The man who crawled to the roof? That image haunts me. A lone man, in the dark, painting a target and calling it in over and over, knowing drones were overhead and aircraft was only 1/2 hour away.
There are tapes of their maydays. There has to be video.
And yes, these things have happened before. I just don’t recall a sitting President refusing, and, then, denying/lying about the cause.
Exception: the Bay of Pigs.
So a US General let a man be questioned by the police in the middle of the night, who allowed his name and address all over TV, his life threatened, then perp walked and arrested (on parole violation).....all for a LIE?
That to me, is unforgivable.
Not to mention the Free Speech issues involved.
Paula is no dumb broad. Well, we knew that.
Amend? Weasel wording.
No. The committee should follow on with “WHY” he has decided to amend his statement.
Get the popcorn ready!!!
Being first out works too, when leaking.
Uh, you're looking for H0lder, the attorney GENERAL.
The CIA has nothing to do domestically ;-). Wink, nod, wink, nod, nod, nod....you're getting VERY sleepy..tick, tick tick....
I have no choice but to be hopeful. There is no way to bring the terrorist in the White House down unless he can be proved a traitor or worse. Godspeed to the General and may he fear the Lord more than he fears the President.
wow...! OMG...would not have guessed this in 100 years.
Will he spill the beans about the Obama Bengazi WATERBOARDING...?
Benghazi = Gitmo East.
Contradicts Obama claim that Gitmo is a recruiting tool for terrorists, now doesn’t it. Also, Obama engaged in torture on foreign soil? All against his Exectuive Order.
Anybody consider the possibility that he resigned so he could tell the truth?
“Paula is no dumb broad. Well, we knew that.”
She was sending a message, IMO. This was after her FBI interview when she voluntarily gave up her computer, and before her joint appearance at the OSS Society dinner where she attended the VIP reception with Petreaus ...”as a couple.”
isnt his insurance from impeachment biden as 2nd in command?
As dumb as Bite-me Biden is, I would go for him in a split second over the pathological demonic, satanic, evil 0dumb0!
I’m beginning to not trust the President.
Yes. Multiple times.
I heard he went shirtless in the hearing and pulled a Ric Flair, “woooooooooooo”.
Had to prove he was in fact “quite the physical specimen”.
Ha ha, there’s Schumer looking longingly at the microphone !!
Gen P could drum up his own security if he promised to tell the truth.
Sure that’s the microphone he’s longingly looking at? ;)
But only Petreaus would know when Obama gave the "STAND DOWN" order. That's what we want to know.
Yep, your exception had consequences too.
very very bad stuff.
Petraeus was following orders from his CIC, just as Susan Rice was..
It's on 0bama now.. With some nudging by AWOL HILLARY.
IMPEACH OBAMA FOR COVER-UP:
1) 0bamas failure to attend security briefings.
2) The draw-down of security at the Embassy PRIOR TO 9/11.
3) Ignoring pleas from Stevens for more security THE DAY OF THE ATTACK.
4) DENYING troops to rescue Americans in distress DURING THE ATTACK.
5) Exposing the fact there was a covert CIA operation (Annex) near the Embassy with approximately 39 government employees working there (Besides Stevens and Smith).
6) That Stevens or CIA was doing nefarious things; supplying weapons to terrorists, etc.
The COVER-UP started in the Rose Garden with 0bama's vague words, but became official when Susan Rice did a PROPAGANDA TOUR FOR THE PURPOSE OF DOWNPLAYING THE INCIDENT IN AN ATTEMPT TO COVER-UP FAILURES AND MINIMIZE DAMAGE TO OBAMA'S RE-ELECTION BID.
A COVER-UP TO SAVE HIS RE-ELECTION!!!
'Politics FIRST, America LAST'
Maybe that insurance works for some, but not for me. I’d prefer the idiot over the muslim communist foreigner any day. Besides, I’m sure that once the story starts unraveling, Biden will be up to his hair plugs in it and liable for impeachment, too.
Servicing Maddow, Matthews, Maher & Sullivan.
Hey, that sounds like one of those law firms that advertize on TV !
who got questioned in the middle of the night
I think Petraeus and Broadwell should board a plane to Brazzaville.
You may be right. But I can’t help but think that having seen the devotion and dedication of the military men coming back from Afghanistan/Iraq having given so much, that men like Petreaus must have memories of having led these men to give up limbs and life and feel an obligation to them and to those who came before him, that he owes them and the nation the truth....and whatever befalls anyone, duty, honor, country is the soldiers highest calling. I hope it is so.
So, a lying, fired, disgruntled soon to be prosecuted for adultery, adulterer, disgraced former government employee will be testifying that he lied and is just now telling the truth.
Well, I was talking about GP supposedly being so honorable...all the while letting a man who made a video be blamed and put in danger, for a lie.
I expect this kind of corruption from Holder, Hillary and the Kenyan.
I do not understand why GP covered for him all these months.
All to protect his sex life??
Uh, sleepy head, the closed hearing is scheduled for tomorrow.
IOW, it has yet to happen.
I have no idea what you're mumbling about...........
and I'm pretty certain you don't either.
Oh, I think that is absolutely why he resigned.
It’s true that we haven’t heard from Paula Broadwell for awhile. When and under what circumstances was her driver’s license found?
Admiral Boorda was an honorable man. Petraeus ought to be concerned that someone will decide for him that he is just too ashamed of himself to live.
But there is another way to look at it. If I managed to get appointed CIA director by 0bama, I’d definitely take the job and do my best to use that position to protect the country. At the same time, I’d keep an eye on 0bama. (Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.) The only way I’d resign is if I thought that would benefit my country more than staying on the job.
Not saying Petraeus thinks the way I do, but I wouldn’t rule that out.
It would be nice, but I’m not holding my breath. It seems that every time we get Obama on the ropes, somebody comes in at the last minutes to stab us in the back. Roberts, Christie, etc.
Maybe Rahm’s office in Chicago?
She had been out jogging that morning and surprised news people when she came back to the house.
I can’t believe that all those potential bus accidents think it can’t happen to them and they are going to be safe on the bus. I don’t even think Moochelle is safe from being thrown under the bus if Zippy thought it would benefit him.
Well put. It’s easy for us to bluster, but few if any of us have ever been in that position or anything even remotely like it.
He was a general, and therefore had to be pretty PC to get to the rank he attained, although he also obviously had skills and was a thoughtful person. I think it’s very possible that he wants to do the right thing now, even if he blew it the first time around for whatever reason (possibly not to protect himself, but somebody else).
