Fox News reports:

The State Department-sponsored report examining the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi is complete and in Secretary Hillary Clinton's hands.

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland on Monday confirmed that the report went to Clinton earlier in the day.

Though Clinton is no longer expected to testify before Congress this Thursday on the Benghazi attack, due to a purported concussion sustained last week, the leaders of the investigating panel are expected to brief lawmakers on Wednesday.

Senior State Department officials William Burns and Thomas Nides are also expected to take Clinton's place at the hearings on Thursday.

The review into the Libya attack was led by Adm. Mike Mullen, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Thomas Pickering, a former U.S. diplomat who has held several positions. Facebook Fark Furl
