Here is video of Charles Krauthammer commenting on the outstanding career of Gen. David Petraeus, pointing out the outstanding job he did in turning the War in Iraq around with the successful Surge. Krauthammer also said he believes the scandal surrounding Petraeus’ resignation because of an affair will actually generate more media interest in the Benghazi Scandal:

“The other thing I would add is what John Bolton said, and I think he’s absolutely right. There is no way that this is going to get in way of the Benghazi story coming out. In an odd way and sort of discouraging way, now that the story is attached to a sex scandal it will become a story that will be pursued by the media. . . They were holding off to protect Obama before and also perhaps out of lack of interest. But just given the nature of our journalism, it will now become the hottest story around. And you can be sure that even the mainstream papers, which did not show any interest whatsoever in this story up until the election, are going to get on it and now it will become — it will unravel.”
