(iWIDK by Danny Fisher) - CIA Director David Petraeus resigned today, purportedly over an “extramarital affair.”
President Obama accepted his resignation, and Petraeus will NOT be testifying in Congress about Benghazi next week as had been scheduled.
According to CBS News:
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.
It’s now three days after President Obama’s reelection. Attorney General Eric Holder announced that he may step down (remember “Fast and Furious”?).
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced that she will leave within “days” of the inauguration.
The maker of the anti-Islam YouTube video that was initially claimed to be the cause of the murder of our ambassador and three others has just been revealed to be serving a one year prison term.
And we also just learned that Iranian warplanes had fired shots at an American drone last week.
Seems to me that we are learning a lot of inconvenient facts a few days after the election, and that those who know the most about Benghazi and Fast and Furious are making quick exits.
