Just have your contacts go to the SOS website at http://www.specialoperationsspeaks.com/ and look under the tab “Petitions and Actions- Investigate Benghazigate.”

Everyone in SOS should sign this petition if they have not already done so. Then begin networking to get everyone (friends, neighbors, professional like-minded patriots, etc) you can to do the same. It will only take a few a few minutes of your time.

With the breaking news on General Petraeus (http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/cia-chief-petraeus-resigns-reportedly-over-affair-201305343–politics.html) you might be interested in taking a look at the Mondoweiss.net link (at the following New Statesman article) which broke the story about email exchanges with David Petraeus which US mainstream media ignored as well (as also mentioned on Press TV via http://tinyurl.com/proisraelbiasedmedia & http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEtASJOjDU8).
