[Representative Peter] King: Petraeus Said CIA's Talking Points Were Edited to Play Down Terrorism

Bottom line …
We now know that the Obama Administration, ostensibly for political purposes prior to an election, deliberately and repeatedly lied to the American people. And then tried to cover-up their actions.
Was it because they were protecting a CIA operation involving giving heavy weapons confiscated from Gaddafi’s warehouses or purchased from local arms dealers to Turkey for transshipment to Islamic terrorists to use to destabilize Syria and Egypt? To avoid the politically-sensitive comparison to the Mexican gun-walking affair that led to the deaths of at least two Americans and a large number of Mexican nationals?
Was it because it ran counter to the Obama talking points that “We killed Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda is on the run?”
And was the Petraeus sex scandal used to coerce his testimony before Congress? Did he do it voluntarily seeking to save his job? Or was it held over his head?
So many questions about who knew what and when did they know it.
It is time for a House Select Committee Investigation.
