Subpoena Generals Ham and Petraeus!
The C.I.A.'s Counterterrorism Chief, who is described as "not at all a team player," and who is a convert to Islam, was not happy with C.I.A. Director Petraeus, because Petraeus wanted the drones to be more "diplomacy-sensitive." Hillary Clinton, signer of the "General BetrayUs" full page ad in The New York Times, and Barack Obama were not happy that Petraeus stated after 9-11-12 that the C.I.A. did not tell anyone to "stand down" in Benghazi. So, now Petraeus is gone, and so is General Carter Ham, who was "relieved of his duties" as head of U.S. Africa Command one week after September 11. The F.B.I. had Petraeus dead-to-the-water over the fact that he had been engaging in an affair with his biographer. What did they have on General Ham? Both Generals have distinguished military careers, and leaving Americans to die would be anathema to them. General Ham, a few years short of mandatory retirement age, is "retiring from the force." Former United States Ambassador to the U.N. John R, Bolton says, "somebody ought to find out what General Ham was saying on September eleventh." Indeed. Both Generals should be subpoened to testify before Congress.
