**Obama to Highlight Human Rights on Southeast Asian Trip**
White House officials are assuring critics that President Barack Obama will not ignore human rights concerns during his upcoming visit to Southeast Asia.
President Obama leaves Saturday for a three-day tour of Cambodia, Thailand and Burma. It is his first foreign trip since being re-elected, underscoring the importance of the administration's new focus on the region.
A highlight of the trip will be Mr. Obama's brief stop in Burma, the first ever visit by a U.S. president to the former military-ruled state.
Some rights groups object to the visit and Mr. Obama should wait until more reforms are made.
**Petraeus Testifies on Capitol Hill about Libya Attack **
Former CIA director David Petraeus testifies Friday before the House Intelligence Committee about the deadly September attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
Both the House and Senate Intelligence Committees began closed-door hearings Thursday on the attack in which U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed. U.S. intelligence and counterterrorism officials testified Thursday.
Many lawmakers are concerned over whether there was adequate security at the consulate, and if the Obama administration later attempted to hide information to avoid any embarrassment before the November 6 presidential election.
Petraeus resigned his post as the leader of the Central Intelligence Agency last week following an FBI investigation that uncovered his extramarital affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell. The incident raised concerns about a possible breach of national security.
Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that he felt "very secure" that there was no national security breach in the Petraeus scandal.
