    Is that disturbing to any dems on here. Or, as usual, does the truth not matter to you?

    Hey idiot. Congress can call for anyone to testify. You think the General has some sort of immunity because he committed adultrey? You Sir are a moron.

    I'm not a democrat, but this certainly causes concern for me. As far as I'm concerned, the General has been forced into a situation where he is effectively "unable" to testify at any hearing.....which effectively covers Obama's ass. Until he gets out of office we'll never get the truth of what happened in Benghazi.

    it was the CIA under Mr Petraus that was responsible for the security laps that allowed for the overrun of the compound - Petraus is being allowed to avoid the public ridicule by his resignation.

    Nope. Good for him for getting some strange. Stupid for getting caught.

    I'm concerned about the prospect of having to wade through about 6 dozen rightwing nut Petraeus conspiracy theory threads in 'politics' every time I'm trying to find something sane to argue about.

    Stupid but not worthy of resignation if precedent were in order.

    Sure they can subpoena him but not sure if he can testify fully after losing his security clearance. Not sure what that would do. Shouldn't do anything but you know how stupid laws can be sometime.

    I fully support congress issuing the subpoena. If they don't, we'll know they're just playing politics.
