Is this why the CIA Chief Really Resigned?

The speculation surrounding the sudden resignation of CIA Chief General David Petraeus is focusing in large part on his role in an alleged cover-up of the attacks against the U.S. mission in Benghazi this past September.

Perhaps overlooked is the CIA’s role in purportedly using the Benghazi mission to coordinate U.S. aid to Syrian opposition groups and information those same insurgents include jihadists openly acting under the al-Qaida umbrella.

One week before he was slated to testify before Congress on the Benghazi debacle, Petraeus on Friday night announced his resignation, citing an extramarital affair, and it was reported he will no longer testify.

Petraeus Resignation is About Putting Arms and Men in Syria

The resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus is not about an extramarital affair with his biographer, reserve Army officer Paula Broadwell. It’s about U.S. policy in the Middle East, the ongoing “color revolutions,” and specifically the operation underway to arm al-Qaeda, the FSA in Syria, and overthrow the al-Assad regime.


LOL! And some are thinking maybe this thing from a July 2012 thing in the New York Times means something...go down to the second story titled "My Wife's Lover"


General Petraeus.... Afghanistan [Faint] - John McCain, Sen AZ

John McCain, Senator Arizona: ... Afghanistan...
[Mr P passes out. Slumps on table.]

We are going to call a short recess.

General Petraeus at US Senate Arms Services Hearing. 2 minute newsreel. Date: 2010 it seems. General faints during Senator John McCain's questioning at Senate Arms Services hearing related to f military action in Afghanistan. Petraeus slumped over in his seat. He was helped by aides and walked out of the Senate hearing. Afterwards he told reporters that he felt better after a couple of bananas. The hearing was adjourned and will resume later. He probably didn't have enough water to drink coming in here this morning. But he appears again minutes later. The hearing was then recessed.

Subpoena vs Summons

What Is the Difference Between a Summons and a Subpoena? A subpoena and a summons are similar. Both give notice to someone about a court proceeding.

What is a summons? A summons is an official notice of a lawsuit. It is given to the person getting being sued, the defendant. If you sue someone, they need to be told about it so they can come to court and prepare to defend themselves. When you serve the defendant with a summons, you officially tell that you are suing them.

What is a subpoena? A subpoena is a court order. It requires someone to come to court, go to a deposition, or give documents or evidence to you. In a deposition, someone answers questions about a legal case, under oath. If you need a witness to come to court or give a deposition, you can serve them with a subpoena. You can also use a subpoena to get evidence from a person not involved in the lawsuit. You can also use a subpoena to get documents from a company.
