  The Committees are this week investigating Benghazi and General Petraeus has information.  Period.  End of story.  Call him as a witness.  

This is not a time to be “nice” and give someone a pass because he has gotten himself into his own personal problems (which may or may not be intertwined with the Benghazi story.)   This is very important and it is Congress’ job and duty to get to the bottom of this.

REMEMBER:   4 Americans were murdered.  


September 11: the attack

September 12: and within 24 hours of September 11 attack at Benghazi, the CIA station chief on the ground in Benghazi, per the AP,  reports to the CIA that it is a terrorist group.  

On September 13:  Thursday, Capitol Hill was briefed by FBI and the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC.)  The said in the briefing that it was terrorism.

On September 14:   Friday, General Petraeus briefed Capitol Hill and tells them the video story.  

At a minimum, General Petraeus needs to explain this discrepancy and why he reported something different from what even his station chief on the ground said within 24 hours of the attack.
