...Democratic senators who emerged from the hearing said Petraeus' testimony supported U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice.
Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Rice was speaking from talking points prepared by the CIA and approved by the intelligence committee.
"The key is that they were unclassified talking points at a very early stage. And I don't think she should be pilloried for this. She did what I would have done or anyone else would have done that was going on a weekend show," Feinstein said. "To say that she is unqualified to be Secretary of State I think is a mistake. And the way it keeps going it's almost as if the intent is to assassinate her character."
Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., said Petraeus' testimony "clarified some of the issues that were still a little cloudy" over the attacks.
Chambliss said Rice "went beyond" the talking points. "She even mentioned that under the leadership of Barack Obama we had decimated al Qaeda. Well, she knew at that time that al Qaeda was very likely responsible in part or in whole for the death of Ambassador Stevens," he said.

I agree, but how do we get Congress to prove it!! How do we get them to go after Obama???!! Because, I just don’t think anything is going to happen with any of this.
re: “Whos idea was it to alert the Pakistanis that there was a video?”
That’s an excellent question, but will Congress ASK IT?? Will they go after Obama to get the answer? Not likely.
re: “IOW, she’s perfect for Obama’s cabinet!”
You got that right!
It sounds like a menu; Petraeus Grilled over Rice.

Doesn't he own a big chunk of the responsibility for those deaths, too?
