The White House dismissed the bulk of President Barack Obama’s premier panel of outside intelligence advisers earlier this year, leaving the blue-ribbon commission largely vacant as the public furor built over the National Security Agency’s widespread tracking of Americans’ telephone calls.

The President’s Intelligence Advisory Board stood 14 members strong through 2012, but the White House website was recently updated to show the panel’s roster shrinking to just four people.

In the past four years, the high-powered group has waded into the implications of WikiLeaks for intelligence sharing, and urged retooling of America’s spy agencies as the United States withdraws from big wars abroad.

The real question is:

Hmm ...

“After passing over Central Intelligence Agency Deputy Director Michael Morell for the top CIA job earlier this year, Obama announced in June that he planned to name Morell to the PIAB once he left government. Morell’s last day at Langley came last week and, according to the White House, he’s expected to join the board this fall.”

Pete Rouse planning to leave the White House

Pete Rouse, a former White House chief of staff and arguably President Barack Obama’s most-trusted West Wing adviser, has told friends he will be leaving the administration this fall, people with knowledge of the situation tell POLITICO.

“The White House dismissed the bulk of President Barack Obama’s premier panel of outside intelligence advisers earlier this year.....”

Strange wording..(Limbaugh Theorum)? As if now even the WH is separate and apart from the president...lol. The man is never responsible for anything..even his own WH.

Why did no one defend it?

What can we as private individuals do? Or what could we have done?

I think we need to do what the Egyptians have done to overthrow their Mozlem Brotherhood dictator; we need to get rid of ours. And the entire team that put him there, writes what's put on his teleprompter and the bills he signs.

Then we need to throw out every R that hasn't fought this crap with all their strength.

How large a committee do you need to tell lies and rubber-stamp patently unconstitutional practices?
