John Bachelor just reporting on Larry Kudlow’s show that Petraus didn’t want to testify under oath & used affair as an excuse to avoid it. He want’s under oath when he first said the youtube video was the source of the embassy riot.
He wasn’t under oath when he first said the youtube video was the source of the embassy riot.
They’ll subpoena him anyway.
Whoa..Check out #6...
He had an affair. Because those things can lead to blackmail, he had to resign. He did the right thing.
He was widely known as a man of integrity, prior to this. I still think he was. If he resigned to avoid testifying under oath, that is more behavior I would expect of a political coward, not a military hero. I think it more likely that someone threatened to out him about his affair if he didn’t slant his testimony to benefit Obama. So he resigned and outed himself. If so, he can now testify and rebuild his integrity.
