Benghazi: Petraeus to testify

As one of the most wonderfully front-loaded distraction campaigns in recent memory keeps on rolling along and we get to hear all about the “social liaisons” (where is Pierre Choderlos de Laclos when we need him?), the real news is that David Petraeus has agreed to testify about the Libya terror attack before the House and Senate intelligence committees.

On his part, Obama Offered Rehearesed Tough-Guy Message on Benghazi, But Avoided Actual Answers, and the media fawned over O (imagine that!), who deigned to give his first press conference in five eight (!) months and was asked 10 questions

No one asked him if he really did not know about the Petraeus affair.

But fret not.

The Washington Post assures its readers that “Obama [is] relatively unscathed by [the] Petraeus investigation.” In the online version, the Post goes further, describing Obama as “untouched” by the affair.

In other (unrelated) news, the Dow’s down 185.23 today, down 674,73 since before election day.

At this rate, the only way we’ll have to to make ends meet is to become “social liaisons”.

    So now we only have to ask, will the remaining leverage–e.g., possible court martial for adultery if the affair is proven to be of that vintage–be sufficient to extort lying testimony in defense of his former bosses?

    And is Broadwell going to be prosecuted, or does she know too much about what happened in Libya? What is the best Chicago solution? Do like Blagoyevich and take your punishment or worse will follow?

    And will Hillary ever come back to testify, or is Australian lamb too good? Of course, we know that she would not lie!
