Petraeus on hold

Live blogging on Congressional testimony…. Blaming photographers for disconnecting Petraeus’ microphone accidentally, the General is on hold as the A/V guy gets around… at the same time, some body is complaining to the Chairman about only getting charts and not a written statement from the Petraeus… humorous, but not for Petraeus and Crocker.

Update: w/ the delay, the Chairman gets upset at a Congressman asking to preemptively remove rabblerousers (“their strategy is to sacrifice one every five minutes…”), the Chairman’s candid cursing and complaining adds to the fun…
