406 Days Post-Inauguration, Barack Obama Still Hasn’t Appointed His Civil Liberties Board

It’s 406 days after Barack Obama’s inauguration as the 44th President of the United States. Under federal law, President Obama is required to appoint a Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board tasked with maintaining standards for training surveillance officers in civil liberties protections, with conducting inquiries into violations of Americans’ rights by the U.S. government, and with reporting to Congress with its findings for further action.

406 days after his gala inauguration, Barack Obama still hasn’t appointed the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board. He’s apparently been too busy violating your civil liberties to get around to it.
