Skip to comments.Fox: Petraeus will not testify on Benghazi
Posted on 11/09/2012 1:22:57 PM PST by pabianice
Upon the heels of Petraeus' resignation as CIA director comes the news that he will not testify about the Benghazi outrage or any Libyan matters.
I am so shocked! (not)
So if Hillary resigns, she will not testify either??
This has to be stopped. This administration is covering up a terrorist attack. How - HOW do we get the truth out? HOW?
send them all to prison
does “will not testify” mean that
he doesn’t want to, or
he won’t be asked to?
Can’t they subpoena him?
Who’s surprised ?
Yes, it does relieve Davy of saying anything that might smack of perjury.
They were going to have an investigation, but nobody showed up.
“I am so shocked! (not)”
Yep, me too (not shocked).
They must have him between Barack and a hard place.
Sleazy and sleazier....
I don’t quite understand this, hasn’t he been subpoenaed to testify?
How can resigning give them the right to be excused from testifying? This country really is dead when common thugs are elevated above hard working Americans. I would truly love to see our next presidential candidate come from outside politics.
Who could that person be. I will have to do some research.
The putsch begins!
Can’t the Senate SUBPOENA him???
? How can he refuse if he’s subpoenaed?
Any citizen can be called to testify. Roger Clemens comes to mind. Will the Republicans have the guts.
I heard on Fox radio a short while ago that Petraeus said he will be happy to testify to Congress.
Couldn't congress subpoena him and force him to testify?
Surprise, surprise, surprise. Who woulda thunk?
“I dont quite understand this, hasnt he been subpoenaed to testify?”
He could be called to testify but without the documentation etc that he now no longer has access to. So, he can sit in front of the panel and answer questions from memory or just act like mickey the dunce.
Need a link.
Where did you hear this news??

I doubt that he will. petraeus has a very shady past...or he would never have been invited into the inner sanctum of infinite evil in the first place. Of his many sins, infidelity is the most respectable.
Does anyone here at FR really believe anything will come out of the Benghazi incident? This will disappear in the coming weeks when the “Fiscal Cliff” BS will be front and center for the remainder of the year ... (along with stories about the evil Repubs don’t want the middle class to keep their tax breaks).
Count on it.
Its over folks.
Same goes for Fast and Furious ... no more will be said of it.
Send them all to HELL
So lets get this straight...
1. Hillary assembles a group of lawyers to advise her regarding her association to the Benghazi attack.
2. She goes to SA and says that “the buck stops with her” and she was responsible.
3. Bill Clinton campaigns hard for Obama in closing days.
4. Petreaus resigns.
5. Hillary resigns.
6. Holder to resign.
One gets the idea that Petreaus was told to resign or else, but I don’t understand in the case of Holder why he cannot be compelled to testify on Fast & Furious.
Petreaus, who probably knows the full story, is returning to civilian life, but what leverage does Obama have on him?
Hillary too, will not have to testify, but would she leave office with the Libya thing over her?
Until Obungler claims Executive Privilege.
Sorry General - play ball with us, or that affair you thought was secret will be made known to the world....
Obviously blackmailed by Obama so he could not testify under oath. Another notch in the gun belt of the Chicago mafia.
I doubt that Obama will last another 6 months. Something is really really off with this guy.
Speaking of off. Anyone see Boehner’s little speech today? I watched him and he is extremely unlikable. He needs to go and go now. The man is not a leader and uninspiring. To me he is what is wrong with the Republican party. Not only was he short on form he was garbage on substance. We need people that can communicate, not pontificate. The guy is an orange golfing tool!
“Will the Republicans have the guts.”
Is the pope Buddist?
Why should he testify?
Congress is full of greedy, self-interested traitors
who hate America and want $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
and freedom from ObamaCARE .... for themselves.
They support illegal immigrants killing Americans
and they support CHEATING in national elections.
Does MoveOn.org still have the original “General Betray-us” ad that we can borrow?
I’m inclined to your view.
I doubt Congress will want to Subpoena him.
That might spoil the Whitewash that is coming.
You are right! He can and most likely will be compelled to testify via subpoena at some point.
this is good news.. now that he is no longer attached to the Obama administration he can spill the truth beans
He is going to sing like a bird and drop the bomb on Obama.
I doubt the GOP has the guts. After all Bonehead wants to move own to
working out a grand bargain with Obama.
Great plan ...
Sure but that can be challenged in court. To invoke executive privilege draws a lot of attention to the issue. Eric Holder always appeared when he was summoned by the House even though he perjured himself every time. Obama used executive privilege to withhold documents that might relate to political maneuvering (cover up) in Fast and Furious.
