Petraeus testifies

General Petreaus gave testimony this morning on Capitol Hill.

The main thing seen by Congressman Peter King of New York is that the CIA's talking point were watered down to play down terrorism in the Benghazi attacks

The general said they knew immediately it was terror. Terror done by al Qaeda.

Fox News reports "The original talking points were much more specific about al Qaeda involvement. And yet the final ones just said indications of extremists," King said, adding that the final version was the product of a vague "inter-agency process."

Further, King said a CIA analyst specifically told lawmakers that the al Qaeda affiliates line "was taken out."

Lawmakers are focusing on the talking points issue because of concern over the account U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice gave on five Sunday shows on Sept. 16, when she repeatedly claimed the attack was spontaneous. Rice's defenders have since insisted she was merely basing her statements on the intelligence at the time.

The suggestion that the intelligence was altered raised questions about who altered it, with King asking if "the White House changed the talking points."

This is just heating up. But now a new tact taken.

Some Democratic women in the House of Representatives are charging if you disagreed with Ambassador Susan Rice and thought she was not being truthful.

If you think the YouTube excuse was poppycock, you my friend are "sexist."

That's my point of view, what's yours?

Washington is becoming a Vaudeville act. Never seen so much tap dancing in my life.

Katie, you are certifiable!! You are not privy to national security issues...you listen to liars...you post outrageous accusations...and you are the BEST example of someone NOT to follow to church! Susan Rice got her information from the CIA, not the White House...if only stupid and uninformed people such as yourself would investigate before regurgitating lies, you might be able to discern truth from lies on your own, though I doubt you'd be capable...shut up until you know the truth!

They are all covering for POTUS.
We know.
They know>
O.will keep twisting/squirming/ lying until it goes away.
This has to do w/ character, morals & ethics
not the NFL.
Shows what we got in power.

Oh, sparrowgut...we know you can write, but if you can read anyone else's post, please refer to mine above...you're listening to liars on faux news, rush, hannity, and beck are filling your head with junk, and you aren't taking the time to find out what's really true...on any issue! It must be hard for you conspiracy folks to sleep at night...couple that with hatred and racism, and you haven't slept in 3 years? (CIA info, nothing from President Obama)...yep...he's YOUR president, too!

"In GOD We Trust"......I TRUST that GOD made his choice in the Re-Election of PRESIDENT OBAMA.
The party of "NO" that has bowed down to one man, Grover Norquist....their GOD and not the true GOD of all people. Pray for our Nation that the party of "NO" will open their eyes and understand that by holding the majority in this Nation hostage for the top 2% to continue to stuff their pockets with money is a sin.

I did NOT hear you idiots call for secession or impeachment because of the GOP lies about the WMDs in Iraq. No you idiots supported those clowns and their lies and GOD will judge you and your support just the same and will hand down his punishment on you. Could be the same punishment you think homosexuals will receive or those who have abortions.....OH thats right all sins carry the same punishment. TEXAS HYPOCRITS AT THEIR FINEST.

You are talking about 4 U S citizens but what about the WMD lie by Bush, Chaney, old Rummy and the GOP that is responsible for, As of May 18, 2011, 4770 American servicemen that were KIA in Iraq?

ARE YOU A HYPOCRITE OR WHAT?

Susan Rice parotted what the president told her. That makes her an accessory to the crimes committed against the Ambassador and the three Navy Seals. The president lied, Susan lied, Hillary lied ad infinitum. I know they lied because they keep dodging questions, changing the subject all for the good of the American people (wink, wink). To our own peril. This is what happens when good people sit down and drop out of church for the NFL.

what is the criteria for impeachment???
Not lying.
How is it stated?
Syndergal, I do read & think about all of your positions. But they seem to be your OPINION.NOT backed up with facts.
Give me a link to anything that you say, will you?
I have links to mine.

I am an Independent so I make up my own mind.I agree with neither party but I am not a Libertarian.
Guess what??Politicians are not prosecuted for their lies unless they are under oath; then perjury is applicable.
But dems don't file.
Hmm
