A special panel recently authorized by Congress to conduct an independent review of the FBI's efforts to reform itself in the aftermath of the 9/11 Commission report will examine the case of confidential human source that the FBI had placed in direct contact with Osama bin Laden during the early-1990s, a key congressman said Wednesday.
Reports released recently by both the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee and the House Armed Services Committee have mostly discredited the Dec. 28 article on Benghazi by David Kirkpatrick in The New York Times.

Government watchdogs and a veteran congressman are sharply criticizing a bipartisan consulting firm formed by a trio of former Obama administration insiders and the former staff director of the House Intelligence Committee, whose Republican chairman opposes a select committee in the deadly September 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi.
There has been little public testimony from the American personnel in Benghazi, Libya, on exactly what happened as extremists attacked them on Sept. 11, 2012. Did they make calls for help and, if so, what did the U.S. military tell them?
Members of Congress said this week they'll renew a push to designate the November 2009 Fort Hood shootings as part of the battle against terrorism, which would make the victims eligible for Purple Hearts and open up more benefits for those killed or wounded.
Earlier this summer, there were predictions that the outcry from conservatives would sink the chances for immigration reform. Instead, advocates have out-organized opponents, rallying in cities across the country as they try to convince House Republicans that the politics of the issue have changed.
