Fox News has confirmed that scoop with a report of their own. And according to the Senate Intelligence Committee's release from October 25, tomorrow's hearing is a closed hearing on the 9/11 Benghazi murders:
The committee will hold a closed oversight hearing on Thursday, November 15, with additional hearings to follow.
