ACLU Skeptical About New Intel Overhaul

Thursday, July 31, 2008 at 12:40 pm

A press release just out from the ACLU on Bush’s intelligence overhaul:

The American Civil Liberties Union today expressed concern regarding significant new changes made to a previously existing executive order governing the intelligence activities of a multitude of US government agencies, including the FBI, CIA, Defense Department and National Security Agency (NSA). President Bush signed amendments to Executive Order 12333 last night before informing Congress of the changes. The ACLU applauded members of the House Intelligence Committee who walked out of a briefing today in protest of their lack of involvement in drafting the language.
