Skip to comments.David Petraeus Could Nail Obama To The White House Wall On Benghazi
Posted on 11/16/2012 4:49:49 AM PST by LD Jackson
The greatly anticipated testimony by former CIA Director David Petraeus is almost upon us. In less than half an hour, General Petraeus will be going behind closed doors to testify to before members of the House and Senate intelligence committees. Specifically, he will be asked about what he knew about the attack in Benghazi and when he knew it. According to CNN, Petraeus will also testify that the CIA was not responsible for the talking points used by Susan Rice when she famously went on five different Sunday talk shows and spread the false rumor that a video was responsible for the attacks.
For security purposes, much of the content of Petraeus' testimony will be classified. I am hopeful, however, that enough information will be released to allow us to gain some knowledge about what really happened, before, during, and after the attack in Benghazi. There is no doubt in my mind that the American people were fed a load of lies. There is also no doubt in my mind that it was done for two specific purposes.
First, President Obama was embroiled in a very tight reelection bid against Mitt Romney. A scandal of these proportions could have very well derailed that bid. As such, there was a concerted effort by his campaign, the White House, and the media to keep the truth about what happened in Benghazi out of the news as much as possible.
Secondly, I believe it goes against Obama's ingrained prejudice to allow any such event, attack or protest, to make Muslims appear in a bad light. He doesn't want them to appear to be the terrorists many of them are, therefore the video excuse was concocted. For days and weeks afterward, the media fed the American people the lie that the attack was the direct result of a video maligning the precious Muslim prophet, Muhammad. Even the casual observer could tell that wasn't the truth, but they continued the lie until after the election.
We could discuss much more about the cover up that continues to surround Benghazi. President Obama had his first press conference in a very long time and used it to attack Senators McCain, Graham, and Ayotte for going after Susan Rice. He famously said they should come after him instead. I am looking for the Senators to take him at his word. If David Petraeus testifies, as is being reported, that the talking points used by Susan Rice on the Sunday talk shows were provided by the White House, then go after Obama they should. Obama is fond of saying the buck stops with him and he likes to go it alone a lot of the time, albeit without the inherent responsibility of the job description. This is one time when he should be held completely and totally responsible for what has transpired.
Forget Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice. Forget David Petraeus and the rest of the intelligence community. Never mind about the staff in the White House who may or may not have told President Obama about the attack in Benghazi and how it was transpiring. Any investigation that proceeds from this day forward should go straight to the man who likes to claim he is responsible. I am not a vindictive man, but I hope David Petraeus nails President Obama to the White House wall for his role of responsibility about what happened in Benghazi and the cover up he has perpetrated.
He could, but he won’t!!
Obama will never take a hit on this or anything else!
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Won’t happen. Zero just created a new position in his admin, for the generals wife that pays 100K a year.
Congress should call Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the (useful idiot) director of the “anti-islam” movie. Find out who put him up to it and then keep working backwards until you get to the WH.
Or he could just lie his ass off some more.
He’ll say that a day after the attacks he had word that it was a terrorist attack, but also say he has conflicting reports that the video was also being blamed. He’ll say he relayed his report to the White House, saying exactly that.
Who watered it down from the White House and took out the wording about terrorism he’ll say he knows nothing about.
I personally want the committee to rack him over the coals.
Patraeus did exactly what obamy wanted with the most stupid AntiAmerican rules of engagement you could ever imagine.
He kissed the magic negros ass and still got thrown away, WHY?
And if you think he has the balls to throw obammy under any bus you gots to be dreaming. All the while obammy should be treated exactly as was Benito Amilcare Andrea Mussolini
Sorry, but the wife got her job on Jan. 12, 2011.
I think you are correct.
I'll be happy to eat my words, if the time comes.
The official rumor from CNN is that he will say that he knew it was a terrorist attack from the beginning, and that he had separate talking points from Rice, i.e., her talking points came from somewhere else.
Islamist terrorists are taken out with drones. Sl*ts and lust take out our military leaders....
It is actually closer to $200,00/year. A paltry sum compared to the value of saving your country from the evil clutches that ensnare it. The general is in a rare and powerful position. Pray that he uses his power for good.
Don’t look for anything except more mumbo-jumbo to come from these congressional hearings.
Those in charge of our government and military have no moral foundation. Our nation cannot survive men who are their own god.
