(November 12, 2012) The fallout from former CIA head David Petraeus' resignation might be more significant than first thought.
As all eyes turn to the ex-intelligence chief's mistress, it's apparent that she may have been privy to what really happened in Benghazi.
Two months after the storming of an US consulate in Benghazi, questions remain largely unanswered about both how and why insurgents entered the facility on September 11 and executed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
The discussion became a heated issue on the campaign trail leading up to Election Day, and conflicting accounts from the White House, State Department and Congress all led to a mess of confusion that has only further spun out of control following the unexpected stepping down of Petraeus on Friday.
In the immediate aftermath of the CIA chief's resignation, skeptics quickly suggested that there was more to the story, especially given Petraeus' role as head of the country's intelligence agency and the relatively unscathing extramarital affair that he rightfully admitted to in citing his departure from office.
