CBS News Benghazi Reporter Sharyl Attkisson discusses the departure of General David Petraeus shortly after opposing the cover-up talking points memo as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Recently, the administration has attempted to use the CIA as a CYA by falsely claiming that the White House made only minor changes to talking points that originally identified the attack as terrorism. The Obama administration attempted to focus the American people on a false narrative accusing a youtube video for the Benghazi, Libya attack. An innocent video producer was arrested, he remains in jail and mothers of dead American patriots were lied to face to face while standing over the caskets of their fallen sons.
Sharyl Attkisson discusses the fact that emails now show that Gen. Petraeus, as the Director of CIA, was unhappy with the final, misleading talking points memo used to deceive the American public. She also reminds us that Petraeus promised the release of declassified drone video footage of the Benghazi attack. Since the departure of the former General from the CIA, the drone footage has been withheld.
You may recall that we had high hopes in November 2012, post election, that David Petraeus would offer the truth on the Benghazi story. He did not give a full account, which was disappointing, but he did lay some breadcrumbs toward the truth. Now it seems that he may have been in position to be blackmailed which affected his ability to be forthright.
More revelations on Benghazi will be forth coming either today during the President's press conference or when the Accountability Review Board is heard by the House of Representatives.
