STATEMENT BY AMBASSADOR L. PAUL BREMER III
Administrator, Coalition Provisional Authority
May 2, 2004


Ambassador Bremer's Statement on February 2001 comments at the McCormick Foundation regarding the recommendations of the National Commission on Terrorism:

"My statement in February 2001 reflected my frustration that in the nine months following the recommendations of the National Commission on Terrorism, none had been implemented by the Clinton Administration nor by the newly elected Bush Administration. Criticism of the new Administration, however, was unfair. President Bush had just been sworn into office and could not reasonably be held responsible for the Federal Government's inaction over the preceding 7 months. I regret any suggestion to the contrary. In fact, I have since learned that President Bush had shared some of these frustrations, and had initiated a more direct and comprehensive approach to confronting terrorism consistent with the threats outlined in the National Commission report. I am strongly supportive and grateful for the President's leadership and strategy in combating terrorism and protecting American national security throughout his first term in office."

Hi, Del.

Of COURSE Bremer tries to minimize his criticism now -- he's just being a "team player," much as Clarke was when he first testified about 9/11 as part of the Administration.

... you add this to the accounts by O'Neill, Clarke and his deputy, Woodward, and Rice's planned 9/11 speech that didn't even mention Al Qaeda, and it's clear terrorism wa not high on Bush's agenda. Bremer saying so was gravy, and his recantation won't be believed by any but die-hard Bush fans, who wouldn't vote for Kerry if he were the only name on the ballot.

Wake up DK, and face reality.........

No one, except those with sadistic hatred for GWB,
care in the least to affix blame for 9/11. Reasonable
people are interested only in plugging the holes so as
to prevent a recurrance. Guess the DNC playbook hasn't
been updated.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
