    Is this why CIA chief really resigned? Gun running to jihadists could dwarf 'Fast and Furious'...​

    JERUSALEM – The speculation surrounding the sudden resignation of CIA Chief General David Petraeus is focusing in large part on his role in an alleged cover-up of the attacks against the U.S. mission in Benghazi this past September.

    Perhaps overlooked is the CIA’s role in purportedly using the Benghazi mission to coordinate U.S. aid to Syrian opposition groups and information those same insurgents include jihadists openly acting under the al-Qaida umbrella.

    One week before he was slated to testify before Congress on the Benghazi debacle, Petraeus on Friday night announced his resignation, citing an extramarital affair, and it was reported he will no longer testify.

    Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., the House Homeland Security Committee chairman, charged in an interview with CNN that Petraeus is “at the center of this, and there are answers that only he has.” King was referring to the Benghazi attacks.

    Asked if he will still call for Petraeus testify despite his resignation, Rep. King replied, “Absolutely, to me, he’s an absolutely necessary witness.”

    Patraeus resigned at a time when the U.S. intelligence community is facing criticism over both its response to the assault in Benghazi and whether it had early warnings of al-Qaida plans to attack the U.S. mission in that country.

    The White House and multiple State Department officials had immediately blamed a crude film about the Islamic figure Mohammad for what they claimed were popular protests that preceded the attacks on the U.S. mission.

    According to new, vivid accounts provided by the State Department and intelligence officials, no such popular demonstration took place the night of the attack. Instead, video footage from Benghazi reportedly shows an organized group of armed men attacking the compound, the officials said.

    That Benghazi compound is repeatedly referred by the news media to as a “consulate.”

    I've heard this as well, but so far unconfirmed. Thing is his replacement is said to be "the" guy who tracked down OBL for the phoney raid in Patsykan.

    This is fun.

    Because every administration in the last century or so has been involved in this sort of activity at one point or another.

    I'd love to see the practice stopped.

    Ain't gonna happen though.

    The jihadists think the US is on the run. They got us out of Iraq, they can kill Americans and Nato forces at will in Afghanistan, they can kill our personnel with no fear of retaliation, shoot at our drones, nothing will happen.

    Except they might have such a sense of infallibility they can attack us anywhere, any time and nothing will happen to them. How far will they push that envelope? After all, a jihadist already committed mass murder in the United States, on a military base and even that got shoved under the workplace violence rug.

    So that makes it ok? So that means it shouldn't be investigated?

    You give up too easily.
