If failed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney decides to run again, he needs to focus more on issues like the administration's response to the Benghazi attack, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) said Thursday. "He's going to have to convince them that he's going to run a different kind of campaign this time," Giuliani said on "Fox and Friends." The former mayor said Romney needs to show that "he's not going to back away from topics like Benghazi."
Fox News revived the baseless conspiracy theory that the nearly three-year old federal investigation into former CIA director David Petraeus is an attempt by the Obama administration to silence Petraeus on the 2012 Benghazi attacks. The New York Times reported on January 9 that the FBI and Justice Department prosecutors recommended federal charges against former CIA director David H. Petraeus for providing "classified information to a lover while he was director of the C.I.A." Petraeus subsequently resigned as director of the CIA after his affair was made public. But on the January 12 edition of Fox News' Special Report, chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge lent credibility to GOP concerns that the federal investigation into David Petraeus is an attempt by the Obama administration to silence Petraeus' testimony on the 2012 Benghazi, Libya terrorist attacks.
