avid Petraeus, the disgraced former CIA director who resigned last week amid revelations of a bizarre and tawdry extramarital affair, will testify before House and Senate intelligence committees about the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The attack — which killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens — has become the focus of controversy, with the Obama administration's approach to and explanation of the attack shifting over time. Petraeus had originally been scheduled to testify this week, though that appearance was scrapped when he resigned. It's not yet clear when the rescheduled testimony will take place.
