Introduction

The President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (PFIAB) provides advice to the President concerning the quality and adequacy of intelligence collection, of analysis and estimates, of counterintelligence, and of other intelligence activities. The PFIAB, through its Intelligence Oversight Board, also advises the President on the legality of foreign intelligence activities.

The PFIAB currently has 16 members selected from among distinguished citizens outside the government who are qualified on the basis of achievement, experience, independence, and integrity.

The Role of The Board

Unique within the government, the PFIAB traditionally has been tasked with providing the President with an independent source of advice on the effectiveness with which the intelligence community is meeting the nation's intelligence needs and the vigor and insight with which the community plans for the future.

Redirection and boston.com article[edit]

According to an article on boston.com it says that president Ford: "[...] created an independent Intelligence Oversight Board made up of private citizens with top-level clearances to ferret out illegal spying activities [...]". Intelligence Oversight Board redirects to this article. This needs to be clarified. --85.220.100.54 (talk) 12:04, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Redirection[edit]

The agency was renamed to the President's Intelligence Advisory Board in 2008 by president Bush (Executive Order 13462). I've redirected the page and added some additional historical info. --Poshzombie (talk) 00:13, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
