Petraeus Testimony at Odds with White House


Rep. Peter King: Petraeus Testified That He Always Pointed to Terrorist Involvement in the Benghazi Attack

Fox News Insider – Gen. David Petraeus, who resigned as CIA Director a week ago, testified before the House and Senate Intelligence Committees this morning on the Sept. 11 terror attack in Benghazi, Libya.

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) was present in the closed-door hearing and summed up what the general told the lawmakers.

Notably, he said Petraeus recalled stating even in the days after the attack that there was a significant terrorist element to the attack. Lawmakers have said that Petraeus cited the anti-Islam video in the days after the attack and did not call it a planned attack.

King said he had a “very different recollection” of what Petraeus initially said, recalling that he interpreted Petraeus’ early assessment as minimizing terrorists’ involvement in the attack and emphasizing that it arose out of anger over the video.
