I'd bet he looks better than you. Nothing wrong with how Petraeus looks. Didn't anyone teach you that it's not polite to make derogatory comments on the physical attributes of others?

This man accomplished much in his life,which is more than most of us can say. It's very sad he blew it because he couldn't practice self-control.

Obama would probably not had fired him for this affair if he weren't desperate to save his own skin. It'll be interesting to see what Petraeus has to say about Benghazi.

Did you ever notice that McCain's job is to start a fake fight and then never carry through? It's happening again with Benghazi.

Iíve been expecting you and your sleazy pal to show up. You do know there's a law against internet stalking, right? Your following me to every site I go to and attacking me so viciously amounts to stalking, which is a crime; so why risk your freedom for the pleasure of harassing me? I could get nasty and report you. Donít you have anything better to do with your life?

If I did weigh that much, I figure Iíd still look better than you since I donít wallow in pigstys as you do. Anyone whoíd choose piggy for a user name must have low self esteem. Why donít you try being congenial for a rare change? Since youíve never done that, you would probably experience a high like you get with a street drug. You might like the thrill!

I think you're right. Since both he and Clinton are both going to testify and Obama has offended both, perhaps they will tell the truth finally.

You said. "Your following me to every site I go to and attacking me so viciously". I guess you mean DC Topix? Where I live. Do you live in the DC area? Why are you stalking me?

Get nasty please and report me. Pretty please. Get back to us on the results of that call. You really are losing it. So Sad, but in a humorous kinda way.

Who's my sleazy pal?

Yes, it was, but liberals, not wanting their leader to be exposed, refused to accept it as truth. Perhaps the testimony of both Petreaus and Clinton will enforce the evidence, causing the investigative committee to see the truth, which hopefully will lead to impeachment.

You should have read thhe link. the testimony showed there was no cover-up at all. as any sane person already knew.

Sorry your wishes were not founded in any reality.

Seems I should have.
However, all the factual evidence proves that Obama lied about not watching the attack unfold; that Obama refused to give orders to assist the besieged Americans; that the Libyan guards hired to protect the Americans werenít armed; and that the CIA personnel in the nearby compound were armed only with small handguns, not adequate to defend anyone against the heavily armed attackers; and that the US Government, beginning with the President and including the Pentagon and the CIA, refused to help, instead watching the attack live, knowing that their fellow countrymen were being slaughtered. The further fact is that Obama deliberately had an innocent filmmaker arrested and falsely charged in his deceitful attempt to cover up his own traitorous behaviour.

My wish may still come true.

ow can you be so poorly informed on this important issue? The real time video didn''t start until over an hour after the attack, and that was pretty much at the end of the attack on the consulate. Obama never lied about tis at all. never.

Obama of course gave ordrs to assist them, and they did so as soon as they had the intel to know what they were getting into, as is their protocol in such a situation.

The Libyan guards weren't hired. the host country always provides protection outside the compounds. they were, in fact, armed.

No help was ever denied. Ever. As pointed out earlier.

Obama did not have the film maker arrested, he was a felon out on parole. part of his parole was thhat he could not use the internet unsupervised. he put the video on the internet unsupervised, and was arrested for it.

Where in the world do you get your info, jerry springer?

all the facts i gave you are true and easily verifiable.(they can be proved true)

i hope this clears things up for you. Whoever you get your news from now, you need to dump them and start listening to someone else. anyone else. they could not be worse...

Sorry but no wet bloomers for Logan...
The CIA asked Congress & the White House not to refer to the Benghazi attacks as terrorism "to avoid revealing to insurgents that American intelligence agencies were eavesdropping on their electronic communications." Republicans in congress knew this, even as they attacked Obama for it.
