Former CIA director and army general David Petraeus is seemingly endorsing Hillary Clinton for president, according to a new book.
‘She’d make a tremendous President,’ Petraeus reportedly says in the new book ‘HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton,’ written by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes.
‘Like a lot of great leaders, her most impressive qualities were most visible during tough times,’ he says in the book, according to The New York Daily News. ‘In the wake of the Benghazi attacks, for example, she was extraordinarily resolute, determined, and controlled.’
Petraeus was CIA director during the Benghazi attacks, which killed four Americans, including two who worked for the CIA, as well as Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, ABC News reports.
