This collection consists of records related to the Intelligence Oversight Board (IOB). The IOB’s mission was to prepare reports to the President of intelligence activities which the IOB believed to be unlawful, or contrary to Executive Order or Presidential directive and forward reports concerning such intelligence activities to the Attorney General. The IOB also had authority to conduct not just reviews but investigations as it deemed necessary to carry out its functions. The files contain copies of news articles, press releases, press guidance, draft guidance, correspondence, memoranda, e-mails, memos and talking points. They also contain letters from Members of Congress, non-governmental organizations and private citizens requesting information related to issues the IOB was publicly known to be reviewing.
