    LT. COL. RALPH PETERS: The timing is just too perfect for the Obama administration. Just as the administration claimed it was purely coincidence that our Benghazi consulate was attacked on the anniversary of September 11th. Now it’s purely coincidence that this affair -- extra-marital affair -- surfaces right after the election, not before, but right after, but before the intelligence chiefs go to Capitol Hill to get grilled. As an old intelligence analyst, Neil, the way I read this -- I could be totally wrong, this is my interpretation -- is that the administration was unhappy with Petraeus not playing ball 100% on their party-line story. I think it's getting cold feet about testifying under oath on their party-line story. And I suspect that these tough Chicago guys knew about this affair for a while, held it in their back pocket until they needed to play the card.

    What I don't get is why him Stepping down, means he can't testify. He was the Director at the time the questions will be about, he is a central player in the Investigation. The fact they felt the need to announce he wont be testifying at the same time he steps down, just makes them look even more like they are hiding stuff.

    Both Congressional and Senate investigational committees have the power to subpoena someone to testify before them. Petraeus would be obligated under the law to appear and testify. That's a fact Jack.
