Following his surprise resignation last week, former CIA director David Petraeus will NOT testify in closed-door hearings of the Senate and House intelligence committees on Thursday.
While Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) told ABC's "This Week" that he wouldn't rule out the retired four-star general being called to testify "at some point in time," many conservatives are fuming that acting CIA director Michael Morrell will appear before Congressional leaders instead of his former boss. When, and if, Petraeus testifies, he could attempt to exercise his rights under the fifth amendment and refuse to answer questions about the deadly September 11 terrorist attack in Benghazi. The recent events swirling around the former CIA director has many grassroots Americans wondering if a deepening Libya cover-up is in the works. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, told CBS’“Face the Nation” yesterday,“I don’t see how in the world you can find out what happened in Benghazi before, during and after the attack if General Petraeus doesn’t testify.”
++ The November 15 hearings are NOT enough!
For more than two months now, grassroots Americans have been demanding a full and transparent investigation into the Benghazi terrorist attack. And while the November 15 hearings are a start, they are not enough!
In the wake of this continuing scandal, Grassfire is asking you to increase pressure on your Kentucky Senators and Representative by signing our citizen petition demanding a full and transparent investigation into the deadly and unprovoked terrorist attack in Benghazi. Go here now to take immediate action by signing our petition: Since the September 11 attack on our consulate by Muslim radicals who murdered U.S. ambassador Christopher Stevens, computer expert Sean Smith and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, Grassfire has hand-delivered more than 375,000 citizen petitions to key Congressional targets demanding accountability and a full investigation into the Libya cover-up. Grassfire representatives will be on Capitol Hill again this week hand-delivering petitions to House and Senate leaders demanding what grassroots Americans want -- the truth about Benghazi. Go here now so we can represent you in this week's important petition delivery calling for a complete investigation into the Libya cover-up:
As mentioned above, we are encouraged about Thursday's hearings. But they are NOT the full and transparent investigation that the families of the Benghazi victims need to get the answers they deserve. Thank you, in advance, for your efforts.
Grassfire Nation
P.S. Please sign our citizens petition and urge your family and friends to do the same. Demand Congress hold former CIA director David Petraeus and the Obama administration accountable for the Libya cover-up.

The world is looking at their piggy banks realizing that the US is NOT going to pay back the 16trillion owed and wants the worlds credit card to get another 6-8 trillion added over the next 4 years. with the first action after the election by the prez to increase the debt limit to 18trillion, there is no way any creditor nation can't know that the spending spree will just keep going with no way to pay back anything but the interest, and even that will soon start slowing as unemployment mounts and the tax base evaporates. They see the cliff clearer from the bottom looking up.
