Philip Zelikow Zelikow to join Bush's intelligence board

President George W. Bush has announced he will appoint U.Va. history professor Philip Zelikow, a leading international policy expert, to serve as a member of the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board.

Zelikow, director of U.Va.’s Miller Center of Public Affairs and White Burkett Miller Professor of History, will remain at the University during his two-year service term. The board reports directly to the president and advises him on the objectives, management and coordination of the various activities of the agencies of the intelligence community.

The 15-member board, to be chaired by former national security advisor Brent Scowcroft, has the mission of assessing the quality, quantity and adequacy of intelligence collection and analysis and has the authority to review the performance of all agencies of the federal government engaged in intelligence work. The board also advises the president on the legality of foreign intelligence activities through a subgroup, the Intelligence Oversight Board.
