President Obama will meet with a federal privacy and civil liberties board for the first time Friday in the wake of disclosures about secret government surveillance programs.

The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board is a little-known federal oversight organization. The meeting was arranged as part of the president's pledge to engage a range of stakeholders on privacy issues, according to a senior administration official.

Obama has said the board will play a key role in addressing the public's concerns about the government's sweeping collection of phone and Internet records.

Obama is also considering declassifying more details about the data-mining. He has tasked the director of national intelligence with reviewing a secret federal intelligence court's opinions and filings relevant to the programs to determine whether additional information can be made public.

I'm sure he'll be sober.   :whistle:

I'd prefer him to have a little weed and mellow out before the meeting. Get back to his (supposed) student days, when "The Man" watching you was a huge fear.
