Yup! He's not testifying. fatman.gif

Quote:Petraeus was scheduled to testify next week at a closed hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee on the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, as well as intelligence and security in the region. The Senate Intelligence Committee says Morrell will testify in Patraeus' place.

Why wouldn't he want to testify? Why would he quit over it? Is it because he was ashamed of counselling caution, or because he won't lie about being told to stand down? Or was he forced out to save him the dilemma?

Seems to me someone wanted him out and they finally found dirt on him.

From the article:
Quote:CBS News has learned that for the last few months the FBI has been investigating the communications of Petraeus.

Because the embassy had asked four times for help and it was denied and it's documented they were refused. Why? dunno.gif

I've read they were given a top level order to stand down, you know like Cheney gave on 9-11?

Something like that, now he won't be on trial and will step into some lucrative corporate job.
