     By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution
     and statutes of the United States of America, and in order to
     enhance the security of the United States by assuring the
     legality of activities of the Intelligence Community, it is
     hereby ordered as follows:

     Section 1. There is hereby established within the White House
     Office, Executive Office of the President, the President's
     Intelligence Oversight Board, which shall be composed of three
     members. One member, appointed from among the membership of the
     President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, shall be
     designated by the President as Chairman. Members of the Board
     shall serve at the pleasure of the President and shall be
     appointed by the President from among trustworthy and
     distinguished citizens outside the Government who are qualified
     on the basis of achievement, experience and independence. The
     Board shall utilize such full-time staff and consultants as
     authorized by the President.

     Sec. 2. The Board shall:
     (a) Inform the President of intelligence activities that any
     member of the Board believes are in violation of the Constitution
     or laws of the United States, Executive orders, or Presidential
     directives;
     (b) Forward to the Attorney General reports received concerning
     intelligence activities that the Board believes may be unlawful;
     (c) Review the internal guidelines of each agency within the
     Intelligence Community concerning the lawfulness of intelligence
     activities;
     (d) Review the practices and procedures of the Inspectors General
     and General Counsel of the Intelligence Community for discovering
     and reporting intelligence activities that may be unlawful or
     contrary to Executive order or Presidential directive; and
     (e) Conduct such investigations as the Board deems necessary to
     carry out its functions under this Order.

     Sec. 3. The Board shall, when required by this Order, report
     directly to the President. The Board shall consider and take
     appropriate action with respect to matters identified by the
     Director of Central Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency
     or other agencies of the Intelligence Community. With respect to
     matters deemed appropriate by the President, the Board shall
     advise and make appropriate recommendations to the Director of
     Central Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency, and other
     agencies of the Intelligence Community.

     Sec. 4. The heads of departments and agencies of the Intelligence
     Community shall, to the extent permitted by law, provide the
     Board with all information necessary to carry out its
     responsibilities. Inspectors General and General Counsel of the
     Intelligence Community shall, to the extent permitted by law,
     report to the Board concerning intelligence activities that they
     have reason to believe may be unlawful or contrary to Executive
     order or Presidential directive.

     Sec. 5. Information made available to the Board shall be given
     all necessary security protection in accordance with applicable
     laws and regulations. Each member of the Board, each member of
     the Board's staff, and each of the Board's consultants shall
     execute an agreement never to reveal any classified information
     obtained by virtue of his or her service with the Board except to
     the President or to such persons as the President may designate.

     Sec. 6. Members of the Board shall serve without compensation,
     but may receive transportation, expense, and per diem allowances
     as authorized by law. Staff and consultants to the Board shall
     receive pay and allowances as authorized by the President.
