WASHINGTON - Ex-CIA Director David Petraeus told federal lawmakers Friday that classified intelligence showed that the deadly raid on the U.S. consulate in Libya was a terrorist attack but that the administration withheld the suspected role of specific al Qaeda affiliates to avoid tipping off the terrorist groups. Petraeus, who quit as spy chief on Nov. 9, explained that references to terrorist groups suspected of carrying out the violence were removed from the public explanation of what caused the attack so as not to tip off the groups that the U.S. intelligence community was on their trail, according to lawmakers who attended the private briefings.
