(CNSNews.com) - When asked at Tuesday's White House briefing about the scandals involving Gen. David Petraeus, who resigned Friday as CIA director, and Gen. John Allen, the U.S. commander in Afghanistan, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney referred reporters to other federal offices ten times in ten minutes.

He told reporters to ask the Department of Justice, the FBI, the Pentagon, the Department of Defense, and “investigative bodies” for answers.

As CIA director, Petraeus was responsible for informing members of Congress and others in the government about what had happened and why in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. At that time, he was under investigation by the FBI, but, according to Carney, President Obama was not told until Wednesday--the day after the presidential election--about that investigation.
