(CNSNews.com) – The State Department Thursday reined in expectations that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will share with lawmakers the findings of an inquiry into the Sept. 11 terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland could not confirm that Clinton would give testimony on Capitol Hill next Thursday – even though the chairmen of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and House Foreign Affairs Committee have both issued advisories to that effect.
Nuland told a press briefing that to her knowledge the Accountability Review Board (ARB) has yet to complete its work.
“I don’t have any dates – any schedule of the secretary’s to announce here,” she said. “It’s dependent upon events between now and then.”
Moreover, when asked whether Clinton in fact intends to share the ARB’s report with Congress, Nuland replied, “I don’t have anything to announce one way or the other on that.”
