    Petraeus speaks

    WASHINGTON (AP) Ex-CIA Director David Petraeus told lawmakers Friday that classified intelligence showed the deadly raid on the U.S. Consulate in Libya was a terrorist attack, but that the administration withheld the suspected role of specific al-Qaida affiliates.

    The recently resigned spy chief explained that references to terrorist groups suspected of carrying out the violence were removed from the public explanation of what caused the attack so as not to tip off the groups that the U.S. intelligence community was on their trail.

    Petraeus also said it initially was unclear whether militants infiltrated a demonstration to cover their attack.
    The retired four-star general addressed the House and Senate intelligence committees in back-to-back, closed-door hearings as questions persist over what the Obama administration knew in the immediate aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks and why their public description did not match intelligence agencies' assessments.

    Another conspiracy goes down in flames.

    (Reuters) - Former CIA Director David Petraeus told Congress on Friday that he and the spy agency had sought to make clear from the outset that September's deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, involved an al Qaeda affiliate, lawmakers said.

    That was in the first paragraph I put up there. Obviously fundamental reading skills are beyond what some people here are capable of. Is English your third language perhaps?

    From the article you posted:

    Petraeus told lawmakers that security at the consulate was so lax that protesters literally walked in and set fire to the facility, according to a congressional official who attended the briefing, leading to Ambassador Chris Stevens' death from smoke inhalation. Petraeus said security at the CIA annex was much better, but the attackers had armaments to get in.

    You think this is funny?

    I think you are hilarious, but not in a way you'd appreciate. Your conspiracy theory is busted and now you all hide behind the dead in mock outrage as if you folks ever cared.

    Every American should want answers for why this happened and why the admin was inept afterward. The fact that so many here want to put their head in the sand or think its funny shows a lot about your character.

    The list is long. Please reference the term "you all". It's Southern meaning more than just you.

    that article has changed over the course of today. Reads differently than it did earlier.
