After a furious push to establish and appoint members to the House select committee on Benghazi, the panel's official proceedings have hit slow gear, and committee members say they don't expect to begin talking with witnesses until the fall.
Current and former U.S. officials, congressional sources and outside analysts briefed on the attack told The Washington Times on Monday that the U.S. intelligence community's assessment about al Qaeda's links to the Benghazi tragedy has not changed.
"I think it's going to take that long to get everybody staffed up and briefed as to where we're at, making everybody familiar," Rep. Lynn A. Westmoreland, Georgia Republican and one of seven GOP members on the panel, said of the tentative post-August schedule. "You're probably going to have to go through security clearance kind of stuff, and that just takes a while."
Mr. Westmoreland said he didn't anticipate that development would affect the committee's work much because any information from Khatallah is likely to be contained to the anticipated court case.
