Rep. John Conyers, Jr. has written a letter to Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld:
Dear Mr. Secretary:

I am writing to request copies of the financial disclosure forms submitted by the members of the Defense Policy Board as well as the minutes of all past Board meetings.

As the Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, which has jurisdiction over conflict of interest rules, I have a strong interest in insuring that our laws are being complied with, particularly those which touch on the integrity of our ethical requirements at a time of war. I therefore believe it is critical that this material be provided to help us assess the degree to which members of the Defense Policy Board face real or perceived conflicts of interest which would impede their ability to advise the Defense Department

About time someone called Rumsfeld and Perle to the carpet. Where the heck has everyone been? Now if only someone would ask if the Cheney energy meetings were in prepartation for an invasion of Iraq...
