Prior to spending the past 15 years running the University of Oklahoma, Democrat David Boren served in the U.S. Senate, where he had the distinction of being the longest-serving chairman of the Senate’s committee on intelligence matters. This fact, more than anything else, explains why he was selected by President Barack Obama to co-chair the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board.
Appointed co-chair of the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board, Charles Timothy “Chuck” Hagel is best known as a maverick Republican senator from Nebraska who did not shy away from publicly criticizing President George W. Bush’s handling of the Iraq war.
