Petraeus Believed Terrorists Behind Libya Attack
The former CIA chief is testifying behind closed-doors before the congressional intelligence committees. It’s his first Capitol Hill appearance since resigning last Friday over an extramarital affair.
Republican Rep. Peter King tells reporters after the House hearing that Petraeus focused his remarks on Libya.
Lawmakers say Petraeus told them that CIA talking points written after the attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans referred to it as a terrorist attack. But Petraeus says that reference was removed by other federal agencies that made changes to the CIA’s draft.
