Washington (AP)- Former CIA director David Petraeus will testify before the House Intelligence Committee Friday on events that led to the death of the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans in an attack on the United State's Consulate at Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11.
Spokesmen for the committee say the hearing will be closed to the public.
Ya nose, da last time he testified behind closed doors it was leaked that he had backed Obama's story that it was a protest about that stupid movie. Who leaked it then? Normally is is the lefties that leak!!! Like Senator Leaky Leahy (D) who was kicked out of several committees because he was stripped of his security clearance!!!<quoted text>
Yet you and your birther ilk will instantly have knowledge of what was said. Incredible, what sleuths.
Senator Pat Leahy was annoyed with the Reagan administration's war on terrorism in the 1980s. At the time he was vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
At a minimum Sen Leahy should have been impeached!!! Yes, I know that Senator Richard Shelby is currently a Republican but he was a Democrat from 1964 to 1994 and he is one of those Country Clubbers I disdain."Leaky Leahy," allegedly threatened to sabotage classified strategies he didn't like.
Leahy ‘inadvertently' disclosed a top-secret communications intercept during a 1985 television interview.
"The intercept … made possible the capture of the Arab terrorists who had hijacked the cruise ship Achille Lauro and murdered American citizens.…"
"The reports cost the life of at least one Egyptian operative involved in the operation."
In July 1987, it was reported that Leahy leaked secret information about a 1986 covert operation planned by the Reagan administration to topple Libya's Moammar Gaddhafi.
U.S. intelligence officials said Leahy, along with the Republican panel chairman, sent a written threat to expose the operation directly to then-CIA Director William Casey.
Weeks later, news of the secret plan turned up in the Washington Post, causing it to be aborted.
A year later, as the Senate was preparing to hold hearings on the Iran-Contra scandal, Leahy had to resign his Intelligence Committee post after he was caught leaking secret information to a reporter.
He should have been indicted, tried and sentenced.
Leahy's Iran-Contra leak was considered to be one of the most serious breaches of secrecy in the Intelligence Committee's 10-year history. But that was before Senator Richard Shelby leaked that we were tapping Osama bin Laden's satellite phone. Bin Laden immediately stopped using it, denying us the opportunity to find and kill the s.o.b.
