    House panel to hold hearing on Libya attack with top Obama intelligence advisers

    House panel to hold hearing on Libya attack with top Obama intelligence advisers | Fox News

    A House committee is planning to hold a hearing next week on the Libya consulate attack, following up on an issue that Republicans had emphasized before the presidential election in questioning President Obama's foreign policy record.
    Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the consulate in Benghazi. A local Libyan extremist group is suspected of carrying out the attack, but the Obama administration has been criticized for its confusing explanation for the strike and for security warnings that apparently weren't heeded.
    The House Intelligence Committee will hold its hearing on the attack on Nov. 15, Fox News has learned. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA Director David Petraeus and Matt Olsen, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, are expected to testify.
    The Senate Intelligence Committee plans to meet the same day to discuss the Libya attack, but that hearing will be closed to the public.
    Time to answer up. Not surprised the Democratic controlled chamber will hold closed sessions.

    It should be closed considering the intentional leaks by the Republican's in the hearings that have been held.... seems the GOP cant keep a freaking secret anymore.

    But good they have to answer some questions... shows accountability... something ironically enough the GOP seem to lack.

    You don't know that they leaked anything.

    Lets see now.... lose the election on Tuesday -announce the witch hunt on Wednesday.

    Sounds about par for the course.

    I know you have a hard on for hating on the GOP but closed doesnt mean closed to the GOP, they'll have members on the committee. I think you'll find closed to the public means it wont be on PBS or anything & tbh thats kind of understable because it will deal with security issues.

    I mean you wouldnt want a bunch of terrorists watching that sort of information.

    Yes - you did how up in post #1 as scheduled with an attack the President thread. Since you like the word HACK , you seem to want to elevate its use to another level entirely. Nice to see some things can be depended on besides the rising of the sun.

    It's a front page news article, deal with it. Want to add anything else?

    Of course they did lol, they showed a map of the area with the CIA compound.... one of their members had to shout up to cover the map and pictures because the CIA compound was a secret. That was your buddy Issa who did leaked secret information and put the lives of American's and their backers in danger.

    Then whoever provided that map is at fault. Do you really think they would intentionally show a classified map during a hearing? Do you have any idea about securiing classified documents, bet you don't.
