A year after its creation, the White House civil liberties board has yet to do a single day of work.
By Richard B. Schmitt
Times Staff Writer

February 20, 2006

WASHINGTON For Americans troubled by the prospect of federal agents eavesdropping on their phone conversations or combing through their Internet records, there is good news: A little-known board exists in the White House whose purpose is to ensure that privacy and civil liberties are protected in the fight against terrorism.

Someday, it might actually meet."

If you needed any further proof of the current Administration's disdain and disregard for your "privacy" - indeed, for your "rights", period - there you have it.

God forbid they should actually let an effective Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board with teeth actually function as it was designed to.

No, they have to stack it with sycophants and "buddies" - and make sure that whoever's in charge of it certainly doesn't have subpoena power over any of the organizations it's supposed to be providing oversight on.

The Bush Administration is laughing out loud at you with this one. Pete
A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government."
--George Washington
