Petraeus no longer on board with the YouTube video lie.
The obvious answer to why he peddled the lie in the first place is he thought he could keep his job if he covered for his boss, the Empty Suit Known as Barack Hussein Obama. Assigning the personal attribute of loyalty to the Saul Alinsky radical was a grossly foolish miscalculation on the part of the General. For a so-called CIA chief it is tantamount to incompetence. But now that he seems to have done the right thing, the republic should let him fade into obscurity.
The obvious next move for Congress is to subpoena Susan Rice and grill her on who was the cutout that doctored her talking points. We may very well find out her motivation was a quid pro quo deal for the State Department job. I don't think she'll be getting it now.

Well, if it wasn't Langley, wasn't the "White House", and wasn't the "State Department", who was it? Or maybe somebody is lying through his teeth. Yeah, that's probably it - I'm going with the Liar-In-Chief himself. Think carefully about who you want to throw under the bus this time, Barry. They will be questioned.
