Bush intelligence oversight board silent for 5 1/2 yrs

"The President's Intelligence Oversight Board -- the principal civilian watchdog of the intelligence community -- is obligated under a 26-year-old executive order to tell the attorney general and the president about any intelligence activities it believes "may be unlawful." The board was vacant for the first two years of the Bush administration."

This administration loves working in the dark. That is not what democracy is about. It is about protecting the privacy of individuals and opening up the workings of government. The opposite is fascism.
