Notice of Meeting of the Commission on the Intelligence 
Capabilities of the United States Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Commission on the Intelligence Capabilities of the United 
States Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction (``Commission'') will meet 
in closed session on Wednesday, June 23, 2004 and Thursday, June 24, 
2004 in its offices in Arlington, Virginia.
    Executive Order 13328 established the Commission for the purpose of 
assessing whether the Intelligence Community is sufficiently 
authorized, organized, equipped, trained, and resourced to identify and 
warn in a timely manner of, and to support the United States 
Government's efforts to respond to, the development of Weapons of Mass 
Destruction, related means of delivery, and other related threats of 
the 21st Century. This meeting will consist of briefings and 
discussions involving classified matters of national security, 
including classified briefings from representatives of agencies within 
the Intelligence Community; Commission discussions based upon the 
content of classified intelligence documents the Commission has 
received from agencies within the Intelligence Community; and 
presentations concerning the United States' intelligence capabilities 
that are based upon classified information. While the Commission does 
not concede that it is subject to the requirements of the Federal 
Advisory Committee Act (FACA), 5 United States Code Appendix 2, it has 
been determined that the June 23-24 meeting would fall within the scope 
of exceptions (c)(1) and (c)(9)(B) of the Sunshine Act, 5 United States 
Code, Sections 552b(c)(1) & (c)(9)(B), and thus could be closed to the 
public if FACA did apply to the Commission.

DATES: Wednesday, June 23, 2004 (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and Thursday, June 
24, 2004 (9 a.m. to 1 p.m.).
