Hi, Clay.

Congress isn't what's important in setting foreign policy. There's ample evidence from multiple sources as to the Clinton Administration telling the Bushies that Al Qaeda would be most important -- the oft-mentioned Time Magazine article is merely one example.

The report was not about foreign policy, it was about national security. There's ample evidence of Clarke's remark, "no higher priority" regarding Clinton's concern about terrorism and yet Al Qaeda wasn't enough of a priority to even mention.

That's four more times than Condoleeza rice mentioned him in a speech she was scheduled to deliver on national security issues on September 11, 2001.

Does 4 times in 45,000 words really sound like "no higher priority" to you? It does to Clarke...

It's still more than 0 times in however many words were in Rice's planned speech, which says something about the current Administration's claims about its pre-9/11 priorities.

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?
