Focus of probe into Benghazi, Petraeus resignation shifts to Capitol Hill
Posted by Staff
The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Senior intelligence officials and the FBI’s deputy director will face tough questioning Thursday from House and Senate intelligence committee members upset over the Obama administration’s mishandling of the Sept. 11 terror attack in Benghazi.

The intelligence and law enforcement leaders also will be grilled about the FBI cyber probe into email messages that led to the resignation Friday of CIA director David Petraeus and this week ensnared the top U.S. military commander in Afghanistan in an unfolding scandal.

The scandal that led to the downfall of Petraeus one week before he was to testify on the Benghazi terror attack implicated Gen. John Allen, the commander in Afghanistan whose nomination to be U.S. European Command commander was put on hold after the discovery of up to 30,000 “potentially inappropriate” pages of emails the four-star general sent to a central figure in the affair.
