  Defense Policy Board Advisory Committee - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Defense Policy Board Advisory Committee (DPBAC or DPB) is a federal advisory committee to the United States Department of Defense.

 Advisors of Influence: Nine Members of the Defense Policy Board Have Ties to Defense Contractors   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Defense companies are awarded contracts for numerous reasons; there is nothing to indicate that serving on the Defense Policy Board confers a decisive advantage to firms with which a member is associated.
According to its charter, the board was set up in 1985 to provide the Secretary of Defense "with independent, informed advice and opinion concerning major matters of defense policy." The members are selected by and report to the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy--currently Douglas Feith, a former Reagan administration official.
The board, whose list of members reads like a who's who of former high-level government and military officials, focuses on long-term policy issues such as the strategic implications of defense policies and tactical considerations, including what types of weapons the military should develop.

 The Enterprising Hawk
Perle quit the board because he was hired to help bankrupt telecommunications firm Global Crossing win approval from the Department of Defense to sell the company to a Hong Kong billionaire and lawmakers questioned whether Perleā€™s dual roles was a conflict-of-interest.
Perle denied Thursday that his unpaid advisory role on the policy board would have interfered with his lobbying on behalf of Global Crossing, which is mired in shareholder lawsuits as a result of its questionable accounting practices.
Moreover, Perle was also a director of Memorex Corp., a defense contractor, in the 1990s while he was advising then-Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney as a member of the Defense Policy Board Advisory Committee during the first Bush administration.

Fowler, who was already a member of the board, assumes the leadership position formerly held by Richard Perle, an outspoken hawk on military matters who has been one of the leading exponents of the war in Iraq.
Perle, a former assistant secretary of defense in the Reagan administration, sent a letter of resignation to Rumsfeld in late March, in which he denied any wrongdoing but said he was stepping down as chairman of the Defense Policy Board in order to defuse controversy surrounding some of his business dealings.
The board meets regularly to advise the secretary of defense on policy issues.

 Rumsfeld's 'Feith and Bum' Corps: What Is Defense Policy Board?
And that propaganda is in the hands of a notorious troika of Likudnik agents and followers of the pro-fascist Vladimir Jabotinsky within the Defense Department: Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Douglas J. Feith, Defense Policy Board Chairman Richard Perle, and Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz.
Defense Department sources have told EIR that the troika runs rings around Rumsfeld, as they fight to make U.S. policy identical to the aims of Israeli war criminal Ariel Sharon: ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians, preemptive war against Iran and Iraq; and the breakup of Saudi Arabia and seizure of its oil fields.
By charter, the Defense Policy Board must announce its meetings 15 days in advance in the Federal register, and "all procedures for closed meetings will be followed scrupulously." After the July 10-11 debacle, officials in the Pentagon and the State Dept. will be be watching more carefully what the Perle gang is up to.

Perle informed Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld that he was quitting the board in a letter dated Feb. 18, although a week later a Pentagon list of board members still included him.
In his letter, Perle said he was resigning after 17 years on the board so that the Bush administration and the Department of Defense would no longer be associated with his outspoken views on Iraq and other matters.
Perle served as the board's unpaid chairman from July 2001 until March 2003, when he quit the post while the Pentagon inspector general looked into whether he had violated ethics rules by representing companies that had dealings with the Defense Department.

 James S. Robbins on Saudi Arabia & Tom Ricks & the Defense Policy Board Advisory Committee on National Review ...
The Defense Policy Board Advisory Committee (its full name, abbreviated DBPAC) is a mechanism that allows the secretary of defense to draw on the expertise of people in the private sector with distinguished national-security backgrounds.
Since the Ricks' article, the members of the DPBAC will have to view each other with some suspicion, unless they have an idea who the leaker is. After all, they can't all count on coming out looking heroic, like board member Henry Kissinger.
Invariably the Defense Department was described as "distancing" itself from the briefing — hardly an appropriate noun-verb, since the Pentagon had not associated itself with the views to begin with.

According to its charter, the board was set up in 1985 to provide the Secretary of Defense "with independent, informed advice and opinion concerning major matters of defense policy."

All of this talk of the Defense Policy Board Advisory Committee (DPBAC or DPB) and you'd probably like to know who the heck they are.
But since they are an independent committee who advise the Secretary of Defense, they are under no obligations to US citizens to reveal who they are.
The Defense Policy Board should not be confused with a number of other groups with similar sounding names or functions.

Perle is chairman of the Defense Policy Board, an advisory panel to the Pentagon, which is often in the headlines.
The confusion between Perle’s Defense Policy Board and the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, headed by retired Gen. Brent Scowcroft, apparently serves a purpose.
For those who may be confused between the two boards, Richard Perle has long been referred to by his enemies as “The Prince of Darkness.” Once again Perle has lived up to his sobriquet in his advice to the Pentagon.
