Senate to Hold Private Session on Intelligence

February 14, 2004|From Times Wire Reports

The Senate will hold its first closed session in five years to discuss the nation's intelligence-gathering operations.

Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) said he and Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) have agreed to the session, which would bar the public and news media, but have not set a date.

The last time the Senate held a closed session was in February 1999, during President Clinton's impeachment trial.
