White House Announces Nominees to Fill Civil Liberties Board

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 15, 2011 CONTACT: (202) 675-2312; media@dcaclu.org WASHINGTON – The White House today announced it will present a full slate of nominees for the long-dormant Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB). The board has been vacant since it was reconstituted in 2007 by the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act. The ACLU has repeatedly called for nominations to the board and issued a report on the need for increased powers for the PCLOB in a 2009 report. “The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board has been obstructed for far too long. Today’s announcement is a promising first step toward improving the oversight of our government’s counterterrorism activities,” said Laura W. Murphy, director of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office.
