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.
