The New Twist on the Benghazi Scandal and Coverup
The White House claims they did were not informed of the investigation until last Tueday night, the evening of the Presidential Elections.
General Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, nominally Petraeus' boss, talked with Petraeus and discussed the right course of action, which was Petraeus' resignation.
Unbelievably Petraeus is on record, well after the State Department correctly called the Benghazi attacks a Terrorist Attack, as suporting the Obama Adminstration's party line about a video causing a riot which in turn became attacks on the consulate and lead to the deaths of four Americans.
General Petraeus was scheduled to teafity to the Congressional Comittee investigating the Benghazi attacks and hopefully the woefully executed Obama coverup of lies and failures.
Nobdoy can really believe that Obama and the White House first found out of the FBI investigation leading to the discvoery of Petraeus' affair on the night of the election. Obama and his minions knew, at least weeks before and held onto that information so it would not negatively reflect on Obama's foreign policy competence and call further attention to the lies and deceit to the American people over Benghazi.
Another reason for holding on to the information is that an early Petraeus exit may have lead to Petraeus coming clean on why he upheld the pitiful Obama "the video caused the riot and deaths of Americans" excuse for not only his Adminstration's failure to provide adequate security for the consulate but his failure to respond when Americans were under attack.
The American people will probably not know anytime soon when the White House knew about Petraeus, but Petraeus needs to testify about what he knew and when he knew it. This is the largest and most corrupt event in American history since the JFK assassination.
