Who’s Watching the Spies?, by Michael Isikoff and Mark Hosenball, Newsweek, Jul 9, 2008

The White House has rejected House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s pick for a newly created U.S. government civil liberties board–a move that may doom efforts to get the panel up and running while President Bush remains in office.
