Update: Was Petraeus Taken Out by a CIA Palace Coup? -- NRO
My Comment: The book's suggestion that the Benghazi consulate attack was actually an act of revenge that targeted U.S. special operations is news that I had posted before .... but there never was .... and still is .... no corroborative evidence for these accusations. As for the Petraeus "CIA palace coup" .... now that is an interesting theory .... but I need more proof.
