You Know Who Still Hasn’t Called
Benghazi a Terrorist Attack?

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 10/11/2012 3:50:01 PM

Gen. David Petraeus. He’s currently the head of the CIA, widely credited with winning the war in Iraq. On Sept 13, as a commenter on the Infinite Spin post pointed out, Petraeus told members of Congress that he believed that the Benghazi sacking happened because of the YouTube video. [A]n official said, “No one … believed that the mortars, indirect and direct fire, and the RPGs were just the work of a mob — no one.” Yet a congressional source told Fox News that CIA Director David Petraeus, during a briefing with members of the House Intelligence Committee three days

Petraeus's conclusion that it was caused by the YouTube video was at "shocking" to members of the intelligence committee who already believed the evidence showed it was a terrorist attack.

I'll believe this when the good General stands before the press and admits he said this. Not until. Actually there is NOTHING coming out of this Administration I would believe unless I was there and saw what happened with my own two eyes...

Peter King verified this morning that Petraeus said this.

Diana West has a lot to say about this:

Meanwhile, we know from past debate how assiduously David Petraeus pays attention to and, indeed, is guided by what he has called in Senate testimony "Arab anger." We also know that Petraeus as CENTCOM commander was no stranger to politicking, engaging in what was described as an "unprecedented" political push in early 2010 on behalf of Islam's Israel-centered demonology in order to enhance Americas's military standing in Iraq and Afghanistan.

After the hearing he was ushered out by staff and the capitol police, keeping the press away. I thought that was odd. In the last two weeks he's been hinting he'd like to be President of Princeton. Could that be his payoff.

Oh for Pete's sake.... even...even Stephanie Cutter has tweeted that the President;s priorities are getting the facts and "bringing terrorists to justice."

She said this today...as reported in The Washington Free Beacon.

Petraeus is as bad as that goofy liar Lamb was yesterday at the House hearings.

Both refuse to say the word "terrorist" for fear of Obama.

al-Qaeda and the radical Ismalists groups who are affiliated with them know who carried out the attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi. People who hold jobs like David Patraeus also know which groups attacked that consulate. If the heads of the intelligence agencies know, so does Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

The only stakeholders who do not know at this juncture are the American people. The reason for this is that the Obama Administration, as political animals, wants to make it past the election, to a time when they know that they will have a lot more flexibility before they show their cards.

A lot of people like to beat the Petraeus drum, but I always failed to see why. He went along with the ridiculous ROE's, and seems to be turning out to be just another political appeaser hack like Powell. He's certainly no MacArthur.

As a retired career military officer of 25 years, I always had a feeling this guy was a typical toady who danced when his masters pulled the strings. Unfortunately, too many flag officers are like this, especially the ones who move on to high non-DoD government positions following retirement. Think Shinseki.

I don't believe this aburd claim. The General and head of the CIA should publicly clear the air here since it could well be that the Obama gang is using him...with both disinformation and misinformation of this kind...right out of Chicago nerve center.

Re #22, Petraeus gave the misinformation to the House Intelligence Committee about three days after the Benghazi attack.

Either he was dead wrong or he was following White House orders. Either way he is weak and does not deserve our admiration.

Petraeus should be testifying before the House Oversight Committee investigating Benghazi security.

Reply 26 - Posted by: ocjim, 10/11/2012 7:10:44 PM     (No. 8926774)

Immediately after the Benghazi attack I think the administration went into the intelligence community and ''opinion shopped''. With differing assessments available, they couldn't believe their luck when one David Petraeus was of the ''spontaneous attack'' opinion. Susan Rice was told to take this intelligence fig leaf and go sell it as ''our best current assessment'', a tricky phrase to be sure. Built in was the ability to reassess later. The main purpose remained to tamp down any talk of a deadly ''9/11 terrorist attack''. Later the truth would all come out and they knew it would. But immediately, they wanted no ''9/11 terror'' headlines.
Once it all comes out look for the administration to be indignant that the Republicans ever doubted a Patraeus backed initial assessment peddled by Rice, I.E. They did have cover for their little scheme.

For Petraeus, I think he cares very much about American troops and he is the victim of his experience where radical Muslims often do kill our military based on cartoons and nutty Florida pastor statements and flushed down Korans. He thought he was seeing ''that film'' everywhere in the radical Muslim reaction last month. In one case he appears to have been very, very wrong.
All of this, of course, IMO.

Wasn't Petraeus behind the sacking of General David McKiernan?

It's all politics, all the time. Unfortunately for the general, he chose poorly when he went to work for Obama. May he fade away quickly.

On another note, the craven strategy of shushing up free speech only emboldens the enemies of the west.

Florida is the New Selma, and not for the first time. On a visit to Tallahassee Tuesday, Jesse Jackson "used the phrase ´Selma of our time´--a reference to civil rights marches in Alabama that helped prompt change in the 1960s," the Miami Herald reports. By way of explanation, the paper quotes an earlier, ungrammatical comment the septuagenarian would-be provocateur made last month on CNN, where he "talked about an economic boycott to ´isolate Florida as a kind of apartheid state given this whole stand your ground laws.´ "

I have to admit, I’m stumped. Either something fairly important happened yesterday in Washington, or as readers of The Dallas Morning News might say, “I have no idea what you mean.” News reports, mostly from the right-of-center media, would indicate a 50-year IRS employee, recently retired as a tax specialist, testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Carter Hull, we’re told, said the inappropriate screening of tea party-related applications reached at least the office of the IRS chief counsel, one of two political appointees in the building.

In 2005 the Florida legislator enacted statute 776.032. “Immunity from criminal prosecution and civil action for justifiable use of force.” This immunity statute is often erroneously referred to as Florida’s Stand-Your-Ground (SYG) law, even by lawyers, judges, and law professors who ought to know better.(Snip)In fact, SYG is a different statute entirely, 776.013(3). Although many states have adopted some form of self-defense immunity law, Florida’s is remarkably broad in many respects. It provides not only immunity from both civil liability and criminal prosecution, but even from arrest in instances that lack probable cause

A photograph obtained by the Daily Caller shows Malik smiling with Gadhafi.

Obama was a vocal supporter of the Libyan dictator and once interceded with his brother on Gadhafi’s behalf during the Libyan civil war,

American scientists claim the planet is undergoing one of the largest changes in climate in the past 65 million years. Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.

The administration has popped the bubble of hope some small business had that switching to part-time staff would let them escape the high costs of Obamacare. The Small Business Administration on Thursday created a website to explain to businesses that the government will simply tally up the number of part-time employees firms have to determine if enough hours have been worked to essentially create a "full-time equivalent." Some smaller businesses had thought that if they could get under the 50 full-time employee cap that activates Obamacare by cutting full-time workers and hiring more part-time workers they would escape
