Petraeus expected to testify on Benghazi attacks


WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- Former CIA Director David Petraeus is expected to testify to Congress about the September 11 attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California), the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, says Petraeus, who resigned from the CIA post on Friday because of an extra-marital affair, indicated his willingness to testify. No date for his testimony has been set.

Petraeus was CIA director at the time of the attack.

Sen. Feinstein says his testimony to her committee will be limited to the Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others.
