Obama Goes 569 Days Without Civil Liberties Board and His Spokesman Calls US Crazy

“I hear these people saying he’s like George Bush. Those people ought to be drug tested. I mean, it’s crazy.” — White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, August 10 2010

Barack Obama was required by law, upon assuming the presidency, to appoint a Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board. This board is supposed to have subpoena power to compel testimony and evidence, and it is supposed to make frequent reports to the Congress and the public

It is now 569 days since Barack Obama was inaugurated president and he hasn’t even nominated a single person to this board. The board does not exist.

This is a violation of federal law. It’s an abrogation of constitutional oversight.

Does it make me a drug-addled crazy man to point this out?

Ask Robert Gibbs.
