WASHINGTON » The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee says former CIA Director David Petraeus has agreed to testify to Congress about the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said today that Petraeus, who resigned from the CIA post on Friday because of an extra-marital affair, indicated his willingness to testify. No date for his testimony has been set.

She said his testimony to her committee will be limited to the Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others. No date for his testimony has been set. Petraeus was CIA director at the time.

I smell a rat here! The Libs will give General Betrayus as they called him when he was serving under Bush a pass on his "scandal" if he backs-up this Administration's "made all the right decisions" concerning the Benghazi massacre of American lives.

My take on this is that General Petraeus was caught up in a situation very damaging to his career and reputation and which could result in disciplinary action including possible demotion from four to three stars. To avoid this, Petraeus and Obama reached a secret deal that requires Petraeus to have memory lapses or plead the 5th and for Obama to give Petraeus a presidential pardon if the case ends up in federal court and Petraeus is found guilty of lying or some other offense.

Gen. Petraeus was subject to blackmail and extortion prior to the 9/11/12 attack and now his bimbo eruption still makes him subject to further blackmail and extortion to limit his demotion and criminal charges. By whom? The White House!
