I never heard that Petraeus ever corroborated the Obama lie. What Petraeus said was that no one in the CIA ever gave the order to stand down on the request for help.
I think that the request for Petraeus to resign was meant as punishment and the resulting media circus as a distraction as well as being intended to discredit anything in Petraeus’ report on Benghazi.
Frankly, I don’t want to hear anymore about the sexual swing set that was going on. I want to hear about what happened in Benghazi.
Fox News is told that the Petraeus briefing on Sept. 14 conflicted with that of the FBI and NCTC.
On Capitol Hill, Petraeus characterized the attack as more consistent with a flash mob, where the militants showed up spontaneously with RPGs. Petraeus downplayed to lawmakers the skill needed to fire mortars, which also were used in the attack and to some were seen as evidence of significant pre-planning. As Fox News previously reported, four mortars were fired -- two missed the annex, but the mortar team re-calibrated and the next two mortars were direct hits.
Fox News is told that Petraeus seemed wedded to the narrative that the attack was linked to a demonstration and was spontaneous as opposed to pre-meditated.
Newt Gingrich said today (2012-11-13) Tuesday that “people in the meeting” told him that the General said the attack was NOT ABOUT THE VIDEO during the closed-door hearing ... that is was a terrorist attack .....
