Re: BREAKING Petraus will NOT Testify at Benghazi Hearing
They could still subpoena him to have him testify!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1313288


I'm not sure about this, but I think, if he were still in his role as CIA director, he would have to testify, but as a civilian, he can plead the 5th.
 Quoting: ReVbo™


Only if there are criminal charges pending against him.

I think he resigned because his testimony would reveal what Obama did and has been doing all across the Middle East with his backing al Qaeda and gun-running.

Hope Petraeus doesn't disappear. Chicagostyle.
 Quoting: Bluebird


So, if he's just being questioned, with no criminal charges against him, he can still be compelled to testify? Well, that blows my theory as to why he quit. How does his resignation help Obama if he can still be forced to cooperate?

I, too, hope he doesn't just disappear.

I agree with the fact that he knew what Obama did and what has been happening with the Middle East.

Having an affair may not be the whole story, it is just an acceptable may for him to be dismissed without speaking what he may know.

I agree with a subpoena being issued for him to testify.

Re: BREAKING Petraus will NOT Testify at Benghazi Hearing
NEIL CAVUTO HAS JUST REPORTED (4:15 PM EST) THAT PETRAEUS WILL NOW NOT BE TESTIFYING AT NEXT WEEK’S BENGHAZI HEARING….CBS BACKS CAVUTO REPORT, PER NATIONAL REVIEW: CBS’ Mark Knoller tweets that “Senate Intelligence Committee says Petraeus will not testify at next week’s closed hearing on the events in Benghazi.”

Perhaps there is some protocol I’m unaware of, but I don’t see why resigning should affect whether Petraeus testifies or not. He was in charge of the CIA when the Benghazi attack occurred, and the CIA has been under plenty of fire for how the attack was handled.

[link to patdollard.com]
 Quoting: DoorBert


The way it looks to me is that it was not Petraeus (the man) who was to testify, it was the head of the CIA. This week's hearings still hear from the "head" of the CIA as planned. It just won't be "the man" who recently held that job. Technicality, but still the way it is.

Petraeus, the private man, can testify later. His input would still be extremely important, but he would not be testifying as the current head of the CIA, that's all.

Personally, I don't trust him or any of these major players.

That's easy. The CIA carried out the Bhengazi attacks, so it would be awkward to have Petraeus testify. You gotta keep up, Deebs (Doorbs?)!

Your willful naïveté is so cute! Here's a primer, in case you really don't know:

1. Romney and Obama play for the same team.
2. That team does not like you. You are a useless eater who's taking up valuable space and air.
3. They are plotting your demise as we speak.
4. Look up "illuminati" and "luciferians."

Why would someone who is in the limelight and under the microscope as the director of the CIA jeopardize his career in this fashion? This affair and the timing with which it was released smells rotten to the top.

Petraeus, like any other soldier has given an oath to preserve, protect and defend the US and its constitution. If there is infidely (true or not), then why would that be a deterrent or roadblock in telling the truth concerning the execution of his sworn duty to defend this country and its principles?

There was the intent to testify, and now due to personal reasons he decides not to? Isn't that selfish, and somewhat treasonous?

Jeopardize his career??? He's at the pinnacle of that career and would probably do well to retire and draw his pension without having some "untimely" death.....

Ok, if you look at it from that perspective, then the objectives are treasonous in nature. So, he fell on the sword and took one for the team to protect a dark agenda?

The fact that nobody has connected Valerie Jarrett's remarks about what they were going to do after Obama won, and this situation is remarkable.

It's like nobody remembers. This is complete and total character assassination, and removal of a political enemy/witness to their crimes. A lot of this sort of thing is going to happen. Valerie Jarrett said it would. It's going to be so blatant that it will just become known that Obama is a defacto dictator of old, with a brutal hand.
