JERUSALEM The speculation surrounding the sudden resignation of CIA Chief General David Petraeus is focusing in large part on his role in an alleged cover-up of the attacks against the U.S. mission in Benghazi this past September.
Perhaps overlooked is the CIAs role in purportedly using the Benghazi mission to coordinate U.S. aid to Syrian opposition groups and information those same insurgents include jihadists openly acting under the al-Qaida umbrella.
One week before he was slated to testify before Congress on the Benghazi debacle, Petraeus on Friday night announced his resignation, citing an extramarital affair, and it was reported he will no longer testify.
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., the House Homeland Security Committee chairman, charged in an interview with CNN that Petraeus is at the center of this, and there are answers that only he has. King was referring to the Benghazi attacks.
Asked if he will still call for Petraeus testify despite his resignation, Rep. King replied, Absolutely, to me, hes an absolutely necessary witness.
Patraeus resigned at a time when the U.S. intelligence community is facing criticism over both its response to the assault in Benghazi and whether it had early warnings of al-Qaida plans to attack the U.S. mission in that country.
The White House and multiple State Department officials had immediately blamed a crude film about the Islamic figure Mohammad for what they claimed were popular protests that preceded the attacks on the U.S. mission.
According to new, vivid accounts provided by the State Department and intelligence officials, no such popular demonstration took place the night of the attack. Instead, video footage from Benghazi reportedly shows an organized group of armed men attacking the compound, the officials said.
That Benghazi compound is repeatedly referred by the news media to as a consulate.

Oh, lookie here ...
There are known knowns; there are things we know that we know.
There are known unknowns; that is to say there are things that, we now know we don't know.
But there are also unknown unknowns there are things we do not know we don't know.
But there are also unknown unknowns there are things we do not know we don’t know.
Inquiring minds have to know. You know?
What did the president know and when did he know it?
Gotta question. What happened to all that classified stuff that was in the Benghazi “consulate”. Can we assume that all those documents and equipment is in Iran by now?
This Obama Administration is running guns to America’s enemies: Drug Cartels associated with Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez; and Al Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood in North Africa and the Middle East.
Definitely high treason. The President must be impeached.
If so, he's a dead man walking. He's a walking, but still not talking "assisted suicide" just waiting for the right moment and cover story.
I hope he has a deadman's switch and that he and those close to him have God's divine help and mercy.
I guess he and we will find out...one way or the other.
What about unknown knowns? Things we know but think that
we don’t know.
Is Petreaus involved in any of this?
This whole thing smells like He!!. I do not trust anything from this King Obama lying communists empire. They are corrupt. To many things just do not add up.
The attack happened because Stevens stiffed the Turkish government. 0bama didn’t send in troops because he was trying to protect those retaliating against Stevens on behalf of 0bama’s BEST Friend, The President of Turkey (Erdogan)!!!.
The only question is the way they will try to do it. Fosterize, Ronbrownize, or Richardhelmsize him? Decisions, decisions.
Immediately after the attack, 0bama probably told Petraeus to cover for him on Benghazi or he’d (Obama) would OUT him over his affair. Petraeus decided he’d testify on Benghazi truthfully, so he outed himself because he wanted OUT anyway. If Petraeus doesn’t drop a bomb shell bad for 0bama during his testimony, I’ve lost all hope.
well I hope we do get the answers on why no one lifted a voice to save the lives of those 4 brave men. My husband does not think any answers will come though.
I suspect he was not, and did not become aware of the full picture until recently.
When it became apparent what was really happening, that Obama was aiding Muslim terrorists, Petraeus bailed from the CIA.
The ‘affair’ was public knowledge last July. It has been over for a few months. It is now a convenient means to run from the Obama Administration and the treason that is occurring.
The gun running to drug cartels in the American southwest is, I believe, a cover for Obama and company to supply guns to Marxist activists and terrorists infiltrating our nation. These activities along the southern border are backed by Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez.
How much do the Israelis know about this?If they have the facts they could burn Obama and his cabal of bonesmokers to the ground.
Anything dwarfs Fast & Furious.
Nothing was done there.
Nothing will be done here.
