President Bush has failed to nominate candidates for privacy board

Abracadabra! Bush Makes Privacy Board Vanish, By Ryan Singel, WIRED, Feb 4, 2008

The Bush administration has failed to nominate any candidates to a newly empowered privacy and civil-liberties commission [the Privacy and Civil Liberty Oversight Board]. This leaves the board without any members, even as Congress prepares to give the Bush administration extraordinary powers to wiretap without warrants inside the United States… Terms for the board’s original members expired on Jan. 30.
