    Gee...who changed the memo???



    Washington (CNN) -- Former CIA Director David Petraeus testified on Capitol Hill on Friday that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was an act of terrorism committed by al Qaeda-linked militants.

    That's according to U.S. Rep. Peter King of New York, who spoke to reporters after the closed hearing, which lasted an hour and 20 minutes.

    The account Petraeus gave was different from the description the Obama administration gave on September 14, King said.

    Then, the attack was described as "spontaneous," the result of a protest against an anti-Muslim film that got out of control outside the compound.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    It's a inter-dimensional thing, we are caught between two realities, possibly more.

    That should just about do it for Rice then. I would think, anyway. Too bad too, I was really looking forward to more "come at me bro" moments from Barry.

    Obama said Rice made the appearance "at the request of the White House" and "gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her."
    Of course no one cares that Barry threw another female in his administration under the bus with this remark so I'll rhetorically ask...Why is she giving her understanding of the intelligence? Why didn't she simply repeat what the White House told her?

    It's comical how the "I, me" talk suddenly disappears when things are going bad for him.
    Be Not Afraid.

    I don't see anything in the whole testimony that was reported today that comes even remotely close to bringing down Obama, if anyone is holding out hope, this is not it.
    The public is far more interested in the sex scandal and way to shallow to devote any serious thought whatsoever into what really happened in Benghazi.

    The GOP wanted a Watergate type investigation to be opened and to the surprise of no one, Dingy Harry squashed it.

    I just don't understand. What, for God's sake, does the Administration gain from hiding that it was a terrorist attack?

    Isn't there a way around Dingy Harry? Can't the house hold hearings on their own and if compelling enough, force Reid's hand?
