The world braces for a ground attack in Israel as rockets rain on Jerusalem and Israel showers air assaults on the Gaza Strip.

In Congress, former CIA Director David Petraeus testifies that the White House knew the incident at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was a terror attack by an al Qaida-linked group.

President Obama and congressional leaders begin discussing how to avoid the looming fiscal cliff. GOP governors meet and distance themselves from former Gov. Mitt Romney. China’s Communist Party completes its second orderly hand over of power in more than six decades of rule.

Washington Post columnist Matt Miller, Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and Washington Free Beacon editor Matthew Continetti take up these matters and more on this week’s “Left, Right & Center.”
