The Senate Intelligence Committee announced plans Thursday to hold a series of hearings on the attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Libya. But the panel scheduled its first session on the politically charged issue for Nov. 15, a week after the presidential election.
The committee said its inquiry, starting with a session closed to the public, will focus on “the intelligence and security situation surrounding” the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.
