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 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.

“target painted”

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.

Give The General a break ...


"None of Us" at Free republic have been in "half" the tempting or dangerous situations he's seen over the last 40 years ...

and that includes his original testimony before Congress.



Perhaps The General smelled a rat ... and was buying time to conduct his own "face-to-face" investigation ...

and now that he knows the WHOLE truth ...

including supplements from British Intelligence ...

he's now prepared to kick Obama's stinkin' hide back to Kenya ...

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.

“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.”

and those "rates" might include Panetta-Obama moles inside the CIA ...

which is why The General KNEW he could trust "no one", and proceeded with his own personal investigation ...

Obama told him what to say...and he did as "ordered" by the CIC. Rice did the same thing. Hillary did the same.

But only Petreaus would know when Obama gave the "STAND DOWN" order. That's what we want to know.

Now we're going to find out that PETRAEUS' CELEBRITY-IN-CHIEF ORDERED HIM TO LIE ABOUT BENGHAZI, JUST AS HE TOLD SUSAN RICE TO LIE ABOUT BENGHAZI.

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) 0bama’s 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!!!

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.

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??

The quote comes from a Rat Democrat Congressman from Maryland who claims to know what Petraeus said at a closed hearing.

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.

Maybe this man has some honor after all. We will have to wait and see.

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.

Maybe.

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.

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).
