The White House

Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release October 28, 2009

Remarks by the President Before Meeting with the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board Co-Chairmen and Senior Leadership of the Intelligence Community

Cabinet Room

1:41 P.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you, everybody. Today I am proud to announce the newest members of my national security team. I just met with them in the Oval Office, and I’m very pleased to have two extraordinary Americans — Senators Chuck Hagel and David Boren have agreed to serve as co-chairmen of my Intelligence Advisory Board — Intelligence Advisory Board, otherwise known as PIAB.

Now, since Dwight Eisenhower, Presidents have relied on the advisory board for advice on intelligence matters, and under Chuck and Dave’s leadership, I will be looking for the board to provide me with objective, independent, and non-partisan counsel as we work to strengthen our intelligence community and our national security.

And that’s why we’re joined today by my DNI, Director of National Intelligence, Denny Blair, and leaders from all 16 of our agencies involved with intelligence gathering. They represent countless men and women, uniformed and civilian, who work, often in obscurity, to keep our country safe.

Now, in recent months we’ve seen some of their successes, in partnership with law enforcement and homeland security — real progress against al Qaeda and its extremist allies. And we thank those behind these successes, and we pledge to continue to provide the utmost support to them. Having Chuck Hagel and Dave Boren next to me I think is going to help us do an even better job.

Chuck understands that accurate and timely intelligence is essential for effective foreign policy. He served for many years as — on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and six years on the Senate Elect Committee on Intelligence. And I came to appreciate his sound judgments in our travels together overseas, including to Iraq and Afghanistan.

He also understands, from personal experience, the need to protect our troops and provide them with the best possible intelligence. During Vietnam, Sergeant Hagel served as an infantry squad leader, along with his brother, where they both were wounded twice. I thank Chuck for his lifetime of service and his willingness to serve once again.

David is a longtime champion of intelligence reform. He was the longest-serving chairman in the history of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. In that time, he authored the legislation that created an independent inspector general at the CIA and major reforms to our oversight of covert actions.

David was also the leading force behind legislation that has encouraged thousands of American college students to study abroad to deepen their knowledge of the world and cultures. I thank David for agreeing to serve in this capacity, even as he continues to lead the University of Oklahoma. And we are sorry about Bradford’s shoulder.

SENATOR BOREN: Thank you. (Laughter.)

THE PRESIDENT: I look forward to working with Chuck and David in their new roles. They will report to me, they will have my full support, and they will have the full cooperation of my National Security Council staff and the organizations represented here.

We are off to a good start with this meeting — by welcoming the press, which past advisory boards have rarely done. That’s a reflection of my administration’s commitment to transparency and open government — even, when appropriate, on matters of national security and intelligence.

In the near future, I’ll be naming additional members to the board. I look forward to Chuck, David, and these men and women around the table for their candid and unvarnished advice on the quality and accuracy of our intelligence and the effectiveness of our intelligence community.

Our work is clear. The organizations represented here have made real progress in recent years. But we all agree that more needs to be done — to improve the collection of intelligence, to ensure that analysis reaches senior decision-makers in a timely way, and to provide strong oversight to ensure that our intelligence activities are consistent with our democratic values and the rule of law.

The American people — and the men and women of our intelligence community as well — deserve nothing less. As I’ve said in my recent visits to the National Counterterrorism Center and the Joint Terrorism Task Force, we are extraordinarily grateful to them for the hard work, without any fanfare, that they do to keep the American people safe.

That’s what I’m committed to doing as President, and that’s why I want to again thank Senators Hagel and Boren for agreeing to serve in this capacity. I think they are going to be a invaluable resource to all of us sitting around the table.

Thank you very much, everybody.

END 1:46 P.M. EDT

In other words it’s an effort to hobble intelligence services with more litigation.

SNIPPET from the link in post no. 4:

“Also on Wednesday, Obama announced [transcript] the appointment of former senators Chuck Hagel (R-NB) and David Boren (D-OK) [professional profiles] to chair the Intelligence Advisory Board (PIAB), the IOB’s parent body charged with providing an independent source of advice to the president on the efficacy of intelligence operations.”

Please note that Obama has a tendency to put people in positions that will make he, Obama, look like the type of leader he isn’t.

Hagel and Boren are respected individuals who are now red herrings, you know, window dressing. It is the other faceless and nameless beings working behind PIAB who we should know about and be concerned about.

Actually I have no idea what it means yet and am just guessing since to figure this out I have to find the original EOs and substitute the “hope and changes” ... which I am doing now and one spot does indeed look particularly fishy.

Not a problem.

“Obama names Hagel co-chairman of intelligence board”

By CORY MATTESON / Lincoln Journal Star | Posted: Wednesday, October 28, 2009 7:45 pm

SNIPPET: “On Wednesday, President Barack Obama introduced former Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel and former Oklahoma Sen. David Boren as co-chairmen of the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board.

The goal of the board, Hagel said Wednesday, is to provide “thoughtful, informed and independent advice” to the president regarding America’s intelligence-gathering agencies and how they can best work effectively to collect and share information to make critical decisions.”

Hagel is bad news. Anyone connected to Shakir al Khafagi is not a good thing for this country; he is known for being Saddam Hussein's conduit to UNSCOM inspector Scott Ritter. And the trail leads, no suprise, to Mr. Joe Wilson of Niger and Plame leak fame again.

SEPTEMBER 2002 : (HAGEL GOES ON TRIP TO IRAQ SPONSORED BY OIL FOR FOOD BANDIT AL KHAFAGI {see DETROIT CELL}) Shakir Al-Khafaji (12 million barrels), a well-connected Detroit-area businessman who led a delegation of anti-war Congressional Democrats to Baghdad in September 2002 and who funded an anti-sanctions documentary produced by former weapons inspector Scott Ritter.

The Oil for Food scandal has obvious implications for the policy he's been advocating of subjecting U.S. interests to a Security Council veto. GOP Senator Chuck Hagel is another U.N. booster. If they mean what they say about enhancing the power of the U.N., in Iraq and elsewhere, then they in particular have an obligation to ensure that the world body is both effective and free of corruption. ----- "Oil for Scandal : Where's Jesse Helms when the U.N. really needs him?," WSJ Opinion journal, Thursday, March 18, 2004 12:01 a.m. EST

(ISRAEL CAPTURES THE KARINNA A --- SEE HAGEL) There's something very odd about Chuck Hagel. He's been among a very small minority of Senators to vote against resolutions in support of Israel; and when the Israelis captured that Iranian vessel, the Karinna A., with arms destined for the Palestinians, he said immediately that we shouldn't believe the Israelis, that they were just trying to stir things up against Iran.--------72 posted on 01/11/2007 5:54:11 PM PST by BusterBear | To 6

Every venture that Hagel is involved with has an Aburdene on the board or in some other position. Chuck Hagel is bought and paid for by the Islamists. Scary thought. Oh, I also read of a Miller/Plame/Ritter tie.84 posted on 07/14/2005 9:18:25 PM PDT by Eva | To 81 |

Elias Aburdene is one of Hagel's donors. From another source: 4) According to the Center for Contempory Arab Studies, a member of their Board is the President of Rock Creek Corporation --Mr Elias Aburdene . see http://www.ccasonline.org/events/Board.htm ...As of May 2003, Joseph Wilson's email address was joewilson@rockcreekcorp.com (See the May 2003 symposium on Africa at www.sahel-club.org/doc/conflict_sem0305_en.doc )-- And we know ol' Joe Wilson, former ambassador to oily, glow-in-the-dark Gabon already, for he is the dude who's been trying to take down Cheney and the god whom all libs fear, The Almighty Turdblossom- I mean Rove.. 41 posted on 11/10/2005 8:37:23 PM PST by piasa | To 24

.* Elias Aburdene : ...but also the Rock Creek Corporation, an investment company controlled by Al Amoudi and chaired since 1997 by a Lebanese businessman very connected into the power circles of Washington, Elias Aburdene. Former adviser of the Franklin Bank National in Washington DC, Aburdene at the start of his accession to the head (position) of Rock Creek Corporation hired the ex - adviser to Bill Clinton for African affairs, Joseph Wilson IV. The latter had already met Mohamed Al Amoudi in 1997 at the time of a reception organized for the World Bank by Westar Group (LAW n.794). --- via Shermy

* Elias Aburdene & Joe Wilson : While Wilson was pursuing his foreign investment ventures, he also served as a foreign policy advisor to the 2000 Presidential campaign of Al Gore. A company the Gore family had a long-term relationship with, Occidental Petroleum, shared business interests with Alamoudi-affiliated companies in Africa and the Middle East, and employed as Vice President for Middle East business Odeh Aburdene,24 who shared a complex network of relationships with Rock Creek’s Elias Aburdene and Joseph Wilson--notably, all three contributed to Arab-American Congressional Caucus leader Nick Rahall,25 who supported Muslim lobbying groups linked to terrorists and opposed military action in Iraq.26 Abdurahman Alamoudi also contributed to Rahall, and sat on the steering committee of Arab Americans for Clinton/Gore '96 along with his associate James Zogby, who later advised Gore’s 2000 Presidential campaign.27 Wilson had worked as an aide to Gore from 1985 to 1986 and had developed a friendly relationship with him. Wilson says Gore was the first person outside the State Department to contact him expressing support when he was caught in Iraq in the middle of the diplomatic crisis leading up to the Gulf War.------ "What Wilson Didn’t Say About Africa: Joseph Wilson's Silent Partners ," via 112 posted on 04/24/2006 2:25:40 PM PDT by Fedora | To 111

I'm no lawyer but instead of barring all leaking the changes seem to imply some restrictions on leaking of intelligence info may not be "appropriate" and perhaps can even be disregarded. A loophole.

****************************

These changes are significant in that it lowers the threshold for who can request or “determine” when it is “necessary” to have access to classified intelligence material.
It extends much more access to the AG to determine and receive materials he THINKS might have significance to HIS office.
It also extends powers to part time employees of the federal government.
It removes the precise definitions which I suggest you read, and gives wide latitude to persons who might NOT be American Citizens.
More in there, but I am nearly blind right now.
