Former CIA Director David Petraeus has agreed to testify at a closed-door session of Congress to answer questions about September's terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya, but he will likely also be asked about new revelations that his alleged mistress Paula Broadwell is suspected of storing classified military material, at her home.

    The Obama regime betrayed the American People AGAIN, and lied about it and covered it up.
    This is FAR WORSE than Watergate, as Americans DIED, just like Americans DIED as a result of Fast and Furious.
    The criminal acts of the Obama regime NEED to be exposed.
    They outed Petraeus' girlfriend, which was an open non-secret, to distract from their crimes, and keep him from talking.

    Four people died because the Republicans privatized guarding American embassies (one of the many things that should never be privatized) & then they cut the funding do I think that they knew this would someone killed so they could blame it on Obama? No look this is four people dead since Bush was President Republican missteps have killed thousands of Americans & others (all the deaths in Iraq were unnecessary) so four more deaths the Republicans are responsible for hell most of America knows that these people are a disaster in government, now the money they should have spent on protection they want to spend trying to pin this on Obama! I thought we sent a clear message to these A$$holes that we want Democratic policy's not Republican time to move on! It's sad that there is nothing the justice department can charge these Republicans with so now we have wait two years to get rid of these A$$clowns! Every American needs to call these clowns & tell them to move on! I hope we are not going to spend the next two years having to watch this Republican circus I for one can only take so much crazy!

    If making him testify brings to light the criminal and treasonous activity of this President then by all means force his testimony! Of course as he was attached to the CIA he is forbidden to reveal those actions still listed as classified so don't expect much in the way of truth or justice from this exercise in professional misdirection! I have yet to see ANY television or newspaper address the White Houses betrayal of our Ambassador and our Embassy staff let alone the horrible torture and murder of a fellow American, perhaps we are too far gone to care?

    He knows what happened. I hope he has the decency to say that the plan was to hand over the Ambassador so the libyans Could "trade" him for the sheik...But it went wrong when those TWO HEROIC Operatives who were DOING THEIR JOBS tried to stop it. They had held out calling for support and were denied support That would be me telling you to Get in a hole cause it's your job, Now I'm going to nail your coffin." As for Petraeus, The man is a HERO. Show him some respect for the Great accomplishments he has made and Don't put him up for the world to see his errors! Clinton didn't get this bad!

    the American people were fooled by Obama on Libya and by and with the FBI. We should demand a new election on the grounds of no competence of Obama. He stated for 60 minutes American lives in Libya were not a political issue.I wonder if he thinks it is now. None of this adultery stuff is about that, it is the old switch and bait (don't look over there, look over here), yes we should demand a new election and an impeachment. Anyone who voted for him should realize by now, with all that he has failed to do, all the promises he broke and now this, that he is not suited to lead this country and that they were made fools of. Have some back bone people. Open your eyes, get pissed, but get pissed where it belongs!



    By the way, I want to inform a lot of people who are unaware, Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya was horribly tortured before he died, something many do not know, as the press as tried very hard to cover it up, prob, at least I hope, out of respect for his family, since it involved rape. So belittling me and each other on here does not solve anything, and there are a lot of Americans that face real threats, we need to unite around the fallen, think about what Mr. Stevens went through and the other men who were there. Care about your fellow Americans. Its the patriotic thing to do.

    Yes Petraeus owes the American citizens his testimony . Just because you resign, quit , get fired or walk off from a criminal corporation does not exempt you from being called as a witness before the law. So, his employment status has nothing to do with his ability to testify in my opinion.

    Hey-Petraeus, HOW ABOUT HONOR YOUR OATH AND TELL THE TRUTH FOR A FRICKING CHANGE rather than towing the obamlie.


    And I, for one, hope his wife has wrapped a rubber band around his nuts so that the pain is a constant reminder that his junk should stay in his drawers.

    She would be responsible for defending our Embassy compound in Benghazi and reporting THAT to Obama. Obama probably told her to "handle it" and went back to sleep. If the RINOs had any nads, both of their heads would roll.

    It seems to me that with the number of exec orders they have let this clown sign, the LARGE number of constitutional violations and the lies, lies, lies and excess spending on himself and his family, they have had plenty of room to get rid of him, and have ignored all of it.

    They are once again going to run a dog and pony show for congress, do what they want and ignore little obies complicity in all of it.

    With Feinstein and other DEMS suddenly wanting to pull back on the whole thing, I think they are being forced to give obie another pass.

    I don't know who has all of the dirt on all of them that keeps them towing that line, but I wish a few of them would just get a presser going and SPILL THE BEANS on this corrupt, vile bit of rubbish.

    I think he should testify and hopefully let's get the facts straight. But no matter what he says, good or bad, the righties will still attack him. They want to blame all of this on the president so it really won't matter what he says. What they are forgetting is this man is a Republican, so they are eating their own.
