    That U.S. Military officials and the intelligence community believe that one of the detainees may have attempted to return to military activity from his current location in Qatar, reported by CNN, has become a political problem for Hillary Clinton.

    Jobless Claims Hit 15 Year Low, Economists Cautious

    NEW YORK — Very few Americans filed for unemployment last week.
