Skip to comments.Petraeus to Try to ‘Put Life Back Together’ Before Any Benghazi Testimony
Posted on 11/11/2012 12:16:36 PM PST by ColdOne
The ranking Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee said hes spoken to former CIA Director David Petraeus about still testifying on the Benghazi attack and the answer is not now.
Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) said on ABCs This Week this morning that his committee wasnt told about the Petraeus investigation reportedly centering around his mistress and emails until Friday, when the generals resignation was announced.
He and I have already had a conversation. You know, hes trying to put his life back together right now and thats what he needs to focus on, Chambliss said in regard to Thursdays closed-door Benghazi hearing, at which Petraeus was supposed to testify.

I’m sure that is comforting to the families of the four terrorist victims. /sarcasm
Cantor had an obligation to pass that information along to his committees
at the time he knew it. He failed by simply passing the buck to the FBI,
which was the source to begin with.
So let me get this straight. An employee of the FBI blows the whistle
And Cantor turns around and notifys the same agency without notifying
His own committees?
Both Cantor and Bonehead MUST be removed from leadership.
What has happened to the US of A??? Is someone putting LSD in all of the drinking water?
Married to the commandant’s daughter: I’m guessing he was one of the biggest suck ups that passed through West Point.
Subpoena him immediately! This is B.S.
It is wholly infuriating to even think that a general who reeks with intellegence training and knowledge of the most obvious dangers of most commom infiltration methods could engage in a shakedown with a climbing broad.
Grant it, his own wife looks oddly disinterested in retaining any semblance of feminine appearance, and loveliness, to a point of shocking rejection actually, but that aside they were living separate lives by thousands of miles. This is still quite too much.
I just wonder when and who authorized the FBI to monitor correspondence from and to the head knocker at the CIA?
Remember when the two agency’s were not allowed to even share intelligence?
Someone some place had to know there was information to be mined and then had to grant permission for it to happen. The head of the FBI doesn’t have that power, had to be further up the chain of command.
What’s the over under split on if/when the General is “found” to have “mysteriously” committed “suicide”?
Odds of being “found” in Fort Marcy Park increase with time by the way.
I feel truly sorry for Holly Petraeus.
She didn’t deserve this.
I predicted this last night in a FR thread. Petraeus is on Team Kenya. Proceed accordingly.
Petraeus can suck it....he got in bed with the devil, now he can reap the whirlwind.
It’s like I said, this might turn out to the good. I don’t know if Cantor meant it to, but it might be OK.
This whole gets stranger everyday.
I concluded the same, and perhaps for the WP commandant’s daughter. It is extraordinary that this woman married the achiever and let her own appearance spiral to a point of shocking careLESSness.
Does anyone remember a hot book from back in the late 70s, called “Dress for Success” there were two versions, if I remember right. One for women, one for men.
In that book, they described the kind of “look” and apparel preferred by military officers.
Definitely not Holly’s - the opposite, in fact. But, Holly is not a young woman, and she doesn’t dye her hair. She may be hypothyroid, have other health issues, like me, and can’t lose weight no matter how hard
Not every 60 year old woman looks “fantastic” - particularly if they are working, and do not have time for gyms, spas, plastic surgery, etc.
Please, don’t start picking on post-menopausal women for how they look. Most of us do the best we can, and it isn’t always easy to compete with the 30-something crowd, who eventually will have to struggle with similar problems.
What the F!!!!! Sure putting his life back together is way more important than 4 murdered Americans. Do I need the sarc tag????????
What about the lives of the four murdered American families?
When do they get to put their lives back together, by getting to the truth.
The Senate is controlled by the Rats.
We’ll have to await Issa’s move.
When he finally does testify will
Thy let him sit at a desk?
I rather doubt he’ll see Christmas.
That's the truth. There is a lot more to this than we know yet. I find it hard to believe that a sixty year old man with everything to lose would suddenly start messing with other women. If he has been a skirt chaser all of his life, I can't see how he got such rank and esteem. He seems to have been really careless with his choice of women. I'm military and the higher the rank, the more they frown upon extramarital affairs.
I’ve seen the future, I can’t afford it
Tell me the truth sir, someone just bought it
Say Mr. Whispers, here come the click of dice
Roulette and blackjacks, build us a paradise
Larger than life and twice as ugly
If we have to live there, you’ll have to drug me
His wife if a leftard Obamaphile.
I don’t care what she’s going through.
Call me a dreamer...........but Benghazi needs to keep open and investigated until Obama is Impeached. This an enormously important story and the dimwitted Dims are not going to be able to hide this.
Oh, I don’t know. Maybe it was an ‘arranged’ marriage. I don’t think her father would have wanted her to marry an auto mechanic.
Read this thread if you want some interesting information:
Petraeus’ sweetie said that the AQ gang was trying to get back two Libyan AQ members being held in a CIA “secret prison” in Benghazi. This is very probably true, although another Freeper said there were four, they were actually held by the US until the very end, and then three of them were turned over to the “Libyan forces” and their whereabouts is now unknown.
So either (a) Obama was clueless and, since he attacked Bush on secret prisons and renditions, was embarrassed by this and doesn’t want to admit to the Muslims that this was happening under him; or (b) he was aware of it and had been at least indirectly involved in the AQ plans to break them out.
There was absolutely no intention of allowing any substantive testimony. Hillary is out of the country, and Petraeus is refusing, and of course his majesty will never be subpeoned. If either were to testify, they would most likely have an unfortunate fatal accident.
He has the rest of his life to do that. He didn’t complete the job he left, he knew they wanted to talk to them and he left!
He turned his back on what his country wants and has a right to know as do the families of those slain Americans.
So bogus on what we hear about he trying to get his life in order.
The GEN won’t testify any time soon without a subpoena. The FBI has his emails apparently. Now we have a second bimbo eruption and related pillow talk. It seems this is just the tip of the sordid iceberg.
He’ll be the next one we’ll hear about being distraught and in the ‘Mayo clinic’.
the car in the garage fire was the real stretch for me! Wait Vince Foster topped that...so never mind!!!
Better cool your jets.
Sounds to me like Chambliss just gave him a pass, so HE must not put too high a priority on it, either. IMHO, the Pubs don’t want to make any waves, so having Petraeus appear would merely be for PR value, anyhow./Sarc
This is an effing joke, right?
Get his ass in there and put him under oath. We the American people are not accepting this BS.
He may deserve it, but I for one am not in favor of cutting him any special deal that will do more damage of the country.
Let me be clear, Petraeus is an asswipe. Head of the CIA. In a love triangle affair. Again, not to insult toilet paper, but an - asswipe.
I think it’s more than sordid. This is the tip of a Clancy/Baldacci iceberg.
“I want to know if the CIC is legitimate”. Court martial the b*stard and strip him of his pension so we can damn Colin’s reputation and career.
I’m need to have Penelope Cruz write my biography.
Absolutely it’s about Obama. Maybe he’s not sure which way he will go and sweating it out. But so is medals.
I never heard anything about an affair, the rumour was that he was fired because he was to testify on Benghazigate.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Some women don’t have a clue how they appear as they age. Others have friends or family who manage ‘suggestions.’
And of course, others could care less.
Funny thing about not caring about appearances - it’s we who have to look upon each other everyday - the ‘offender’ can’t see themselves, except when looking in a mirror.
I know of a woman whose husband touched her brownish hair one day and said something like, ‘why don’t you lighten your hair?’ Well, instead of smacking him, she ‘heard’ the ‘request’ and did, and hasn’t looked back.
There wasn’t a divorce looming, but doing this gave both pleasure.
Well, attack if you must, but there’s simple messages husbands and wives can exchange, and most times it pays to take heed.
At this point, I can't imagine anything they won't do to protect Obama. If he has information that would damage Obama, they will not let him testify.
If you go over to the politico or the DUmp you can see a preview of what the dim fairy tale talking point will be: Petraeus is a REPUBLICAN!!!
What a bunch of children liberals are.
If he isn’t drinking right now, he’s thinking which way to go - ‘the way I was raised and followed’ or ‘what I have become’ and consequences of each.
Well ole Saxby baby thinks he .... needs more time. Drip Drip and then bang bang.
Chambliss has to be one of the dumbest aholes— in that billionaire’s club. Here he just nearly lost his Senate seat, and he’s playing nice, instead of demanding.... after what is apparently more than 5 months of this internal blackmailing/owning of Petraeus....that the said disgraced general come in and tesify to the American people on JUST how we had an ambassador killed. The first in 33 years.
OH, and also, why are we arming alqaeda in Syria, and allowing the Quadaffi opposition which was Libyan al Qaeda to go to Syria and fight. How idiotic is this entire policy? Fast and Furious, Middle East division. And more Americans are going to be killed. Thanks obamao.
Quadaffi and Mubarak were both real old and would have died. This is the Muslim president helping his masters.
