Secretary of State Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonPerez and Ellison agree on DNC playing neutral role in primary John Legend not ruling out talking politics at Oscars Clinton taunts GOP lawmakers for dodging town halls MORE will testify next Wednesday on the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, incoming chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.) announced late Monday.
Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans died in the attack on a U.S. mission in the restive Libyan city. Republicans have assailed the administration for failing to provide adequate protection to its diplomats and for initially saying the attack was linked to a peaceful protest.
“It is important to learn all we can about what happened in Benghazi because at the end of the day, it could happen again. After all, al-Qaeda plans attacks over and over again.”
The committee has already convened two hearings on the attack. Clinton missed last month's hearing after suffering a concussion.
Clinton is also expected to testify next week before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee before turning over the State Department reins to Sen.
