Obama Says He Doesn’t Know If FBI Should Have Informed Him of CIA Director’s Affair

President Barack Obama said he was “withholding judgment” on whether the FBI should have informed him earlier than Nov. 8, two days after the election, that an FBI investigation had determined earlier this year that CIA Director David Petraeus had engaged in an extramarital affair.

The FBI reportedly informed Attorney General Eric Holder about Petraeus’s affair in the late summer, more than two months before the White House says the president was informed.

In the intervening time, terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya and two former Navy Seals working as security personnel for the CIA there were killed.
