Civil Liberties Watchdog

As part of restructuring American Intelligence the 9/11 commission recommended creating an independent oversight board to help protect our Civil Liberties. We’ve already seen how they can be so easily eroded.

The Bush Administration thinks that this oversight board should not be created. The House version has agreed. However, the bipartisan Senate seems to want the oversight board.

I think it is very important we have an oversight board to help monitor and protect our freedoms. Otherwise, why fight to keep them?

If you like, the ACLU has a site where you can send your representatives a message saying you support the creation of this oversight board. I just thought I’d pass it along:
