A scare this morning on Capitol Hill — Gen. David Petraeus passed out briefly while testifying at a Senate committee hearing. He reportedly had not had anything to drink or eat before taking the mic.
The Hill reports that he was able to walk out of the hearing room on his own accord.
WaPo: “Sen. Carl Levin, chairman of the committee, said Petraeus ‘appears to be doing very well.’”
Video via Weekly Standard:
The committee is in recess.
