    I don't think that's true. I think people can testify even if they're not the CIA director. Pretty sure.
    I think he can claim under questioning, unless it's closed doors "no response due to National Security". Meaning we may never know what really happened and who's responsible for Benghazi, if anyone. The gov (dems & repubs) wouldn't like this to leak that a Director was blowing his clearance or being unavailable for consult anyway, makes them look incompetent. But they would bounce him out for good reason by asking for a timely resignation to cover the situation.

    You'll notice I said SOME people do this, not EVERYONE. You're just getting ridiculous now.

    I was arguing with rolfpublican who said it can't happen, seeing as how that you don't seem to hold the same belief as him, I don't know why you're trying to argue with me.

    To late Petraeus was the one that Ordered the CIA timeline be released even though Team Obama wanted him to Wait until after Clinton 's so called Independent Investigation. So anything that was put with the Time line can be answered. Also CNN has stated Petraeus could be summoned to Congress under subpenoa. Not that he will but that he could.

    Oh, so more pointless conspiracies?

    Conspiracies are never pointless. If they were pointless, no one would conspire. Did you mean conspiracy theory?

    It's pretty simple. Either you believe and/or acknowledge you're being lied to, or you believe everything the media reports on behalf of our government. Thanks for answering.

    How can the 'admin' stop him from testifying about Benghazi if he is subpoeaned by the Republican witch hunters in Congress? I'd love to hear the answer to that one.

    Do you guys all get together and come up with conspiracy theories in which Obama is the bad guy, or do you arrive at these theories all on your own?

    There are countless possible explanations for why one of the most powerful people in the world resigned from his position as Director of the CIA. Do you believe the only one that could be true is the one the media shared with us?

    No. I am a big fan of the ET's threatening his family version of why he resigned.
    I may be wrong.

    the 'media' didn't share it with us. That's what he stated in his letter of resignation. Since, aside from this apparent indiscretion, he has a long history of honorable service to his country, I choose to take him at his word until something else is proven. I choose not to engage in conspiracy theories.
