Breaking: PETRAEUS AGREES TO TESTIFY
Reaganite Republican ^ | 14 November 2012 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 11/14/2012 7:23:24 AM PST by Reaganite Republican


So right after we start hearing rumors that Obama blackmailed General Petraeus in an effort to obtain favorable -and untrue- testimony on Benghazi (and thus was taken-down) now the good general's going to tell his side of the story under oath...

Former CIA Director David Petraeus has agreed to testify before Congressional committees. A source close Petraeus said the former director has contacted the CIA and committees telling them he would testify voluntarily.

Now you know what Paula Broadwell's father was talking about when he said that the affair bit was an Obama smokescreen, one hiding something BIG...
Benghazigate getting REAL ugly for Dear Leader right about now:

Video/more at Reaganite Republican...

He has his mind right, after having had a failure to communicate. A real cool hand, that guy.

My wife pointed out that he needs to quickly make a video where he tells ALL the facts, because his “health could take a very sudden turn for the worse”.

Do you think Petraeus will say something during testimony that will be harmful to 0dumbo?

How soon before the White House starts leaking rumors about things worse than an affair? Does he have an Elmo costume hidden in his closet? (yes, I know yesterday's Elmo story has been retracted.)

Yep- GREAT movie, too!

But it’s not Petraeus that will be sucking eggs...

Not a chance.

We are less than a week into this mess, and get our information from a variety of (un)reliable interwebs sources.

The prudent course will be to wait and see how events unfold. I have no idea what he’s going to say and neither does anyone else.

I think Petraeus will be opaque and vague. He will leave more questions lingering than he will answer and is going to take one for the team. His team is Obama.

agreed... Dream on people. Do you really think that is how this is going to play out ? He will not testify against this administration.

The only folks that can corner Obama are the press, and that will NEVER happen, he’s a democrat.

This is all socialist theatrics. Expect no “truth” from Petraeus...

The shamelessly invigorated Democrat regime will probably be conducting show trials by 2016.

At this time, there is no light visible at the end of the tunnel; actually, we can’t be sure that it’s a tunnel.

I agree with the others.
petraeus will now say anything that will hurt 0dumbo
but NOT I think because it will help 0dumbo
but because it could damage the CIA

He lied the first time. He cheated on his wife.

And now people expect him to tell the truth?

What's stopping him from holding a press conference now, and spilling the beans?

Even worse, once he testifies before Congress and covers for Obama, the media will have the excuse it needs to abandon the story.

Guaran-damn-tee it.

If he’s going to tell all he knows, he should not only make a video, but he should put it on You Tube.

I think they've been blackmailing him, and he made the move to defuse their threats by resigning and telling all, clearning the way for him to return the "favor" at the Benghazi hearings.

Using your opponents own weight against them is a popular form of self-defense, and I think he has rope-a-doped them in a classic fashion.

Now, if he can just escape "Arkancide" before the hearings, we might hear some interesting stuff about "der furor".

Testifying and telling the truth are two different things.

Did anybody take a hit for 9/11? Nobody will here either. The question now is when is the next 9/11 and how many die?

Where did you get that he lied the first time? I have only seen it reported that a RAT politician said that Petraeus said it was the video. No one else who heard him speak said that Petraeus blamed the video. But I could have missed it in all the stories floating around. Yesterday, Newt Gingrich said that people he knows who were in that briefing/meeting said that Petraeus said it was terror related and that he did not blame the video.

Hard to know. He would need to be given a conditional immunity that guarantees there will be no downstream repercussions. Even then, he might be an ideological Democrat and take advantage of his immunity by saying "Yeah, it was all because of that video".

That’s right...one thing we know for sure about this man, he is a practiced liar and deceiver.

He needs to be questioned as such, without regard or respect of his prior service and position.

I guarantee prior to questioning, he will be lathered with accolades by each individual prior to questions.

I am convinced this affair business is not all the regime has on him, I fully expect him to participate in the continued cover up.

agreed.. yes he will “testify”..

but he will obfuscate and dance around what really happened. We will learn nothing.

just my take on it.

My wife and l have a thought on Benghazi. We think thati s why a kidnapping was planned of the ambassador. The U S found out about it and asked the CIA to stand down. The kidnappers wanted to swap the ambassador for the prisoners. When the CIA went Rambo everything went bad. Petraeus was blackmailed to keep quiet during his testimony. Now the Whitehouse has fired Petraeus and has threatened him with criminal charges to inforce his silence.

You just know that they are going to go into private session during his testimony.

Hope someone is there that will leak the information to us folks.

“saying “Yeah, it was all because of that video”.

of course he could say that which would be such a lie and everyone knows it is a lie and would contradict what he said a couple of weeks after Benghazi 9/11
that would damage 0dumbo

I don’t see him as an ideological Dem. He ain’t no Weasel Clark.
I hope he just tells the truth

And upload it to Youtube, Drudge, WND, Infowars, etc, immediately. It needs to go viral, beyond the reach of Whitehouse scrubbers. Petraeus has nothing to lose at this point. His life is in danger, his families' lives are in danger, our lives are in danger. National security? Classified info? Those are meaningless concepts when juxtaposed against the prospect of four more years of this lawless president.

I do fear for him.

I thought he should walk into a news station....and do a live video....with copies to several people....It's called insurance.
