<quoted text>Actually, and I hate to point this out Bush opened the embassy in Libya -
5/15/2006 12:01:00 PM ET
WASHINGTON — The Bush administration said Monday it will restore normal diplomatic relations with Libya for the first time in over a quarter century after deciding to remove Moammar Gadhafi’s country from a list of state sponsors of terrorism.
“We are taking these actions in recognition of Libya's continued commitment to its renunciation of terrorism and the excellent cooperation Libya has provided to the United States and other members of the international community in response to common global threats faced by the civilized world since September 11, 2001,” Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said in a statement.
As part of the process, the United States will open an embassy in Libya, upgrading the current U.S. liaison office in Tripoli.

Yes he did Homer__thank you for pointing that out.

Libya has oil and a wonderful location in the strategical sense. Should mention that Libya's oil was discovered and then developed by, who else but Merica's Hunt family of oil, silver and football fame. Prozac fame of late.

Anyway__the official US Embassy with the Marines and all is located in Tripoli which is on the Western side of Libya over by Tunisia. Benghazi, where the consulate and annex were located is 400 miles to East of Tripoli, over by Egypt.

The consulate is on a large semi-rural piece of land. surrounded by what appears to be date palm groves. There are multiple buildings and two entrances, the main one to the South on Fourth Ring Road and a small exit on the North end of the complex The British consulate was the next property going East.

To the Southeast of the consulate about a half mile was the Benghazi Annex and it's identified that way on google Earth Hah.

The Benghazi Annex is/was a fortified CIA base from which 30 plus American operatives conducted a secret war for a unknown period of time. Ty Woods was one of those operatives.

NASA was formed under the defense department. Still is. Only defference is the top secret stuff, for the most part, is handled by the Air Force. NASA is the civilian arm of space defense.

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States?
I noticed you're doing everything in the world to not post that time line.
Post the goddam time line. Let's see it.
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?
And, again, just how much of an idiot are you...
The Treasury Department is not a source of money. It is a repository of money that has been collected from a source of money. To answer the question, you have to identify a source of money.
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
I had posted that time line at least six times in response to earlier posts of your asking the same stupid question.

If you were too stupid top read it then, you are likely too stupid to read it now.

The money comes from the US Treasury.

Apples and oranges, the counties that formed West Virgina were part of another state(Virginia), the Consitution is quite clear on that they should not have been allowed to form a state.

The U.S. never recognized Virginia as being a state not part of the U.S.

Ergo the state of West Virginia is Unconstitutional.

First of all, it's not the government's money. It's my/our money.
How about this.
That 10 dollars is 10 dollars the government didn't take from you.
You earned that 10 dollars. The government isn't "giving" you anything until you get more from the government than you gave to them.
No, it's not an "extra" 10 dollars because that 10 dollars always belonged to you to begin with.
It's an extra 10 dollars if you get an additional 10 dollars worth of food stamps or your welfare check is 10 dollars more.
Just how stupid are you?
But once you pay your tax bill, its the government's money.

So what's the difference if I spend ten bucks less or get a ten dollar instant rebate?

You right whiners evidently think these have difference effects on your wallet.

It is unclear from news reports whose SWAT team set the fire that toasted the chocolate marshmallow.
Throughout this incident, the LAPD has been operating outside their jurisdiction, as witnessed by their attempted murder of two newspaper delivery women in Torrance.
Question: Who gets the reward?
It's all on film Galt__I watched it in real time as did you__the small details will work their way to the surface.

The maids at the first cabin flushed him out__maybe they should get some of the reward loot, other civilians played some role in the final result.

I've no problem with the way it ended.

<quoted text> Wait! Wait! Wait! A flash of light. I see now where your twisted logic is coming from. You're talking about a refund check!!!
If my tax bill is a $100 dollars and the government lowers the tax rate I only pay $90. If I pay $100 in tax to the government the government is not going to send me anything back because I don't give no interest loans to the government. So my tax bill is $100.
I understand now but you are still wrong.
You don't understand sh*t. I don't think you pay any taxes & that's why you don't understand the process.

No one is talking about withholding.

All of this simply sails right over your head like it does for most blacks. Clueless racism.

Scenario: Ted Nugent, speaking before the NRA Annual Dinner says "White people are so damned talented in all areas of human endeavor. Just name the area of genius and you'll find a white person at its center"

What do you think the result would be in the Socialist Media?

Yeah. You know.

But Jamie Foxx says this BS and...and....silence......beca use Socialist media doesn't want to offend the racial sensitivities of racist Jamie or racist NAACP members. This is called social hypocrisy and it is a very dangerous element running loose today in the Boy Messiah era.

Yes, many races excel in different ares. Jews in finance, Asians in the Sciences, for example. But blacks grumble racist remarks about Jews constantly. Recall Brother Jesse's racist remarks about NY Hymies. In California, there is a "quiet" war going on in academia about universities selecting blacks over Asians because Asians always do better than blacks. Black racism is a constant boiling pot that we see overflow occasionally like we just did with brother Jamie and the NAACP KKK.

Of course, you see nothing because you are holding both hands over your eyes when you see it coming.

Well, unconstitutional it may be but nowhere else on the planet will you find two strip clubs next to every church! There are a TON of fine lookin' ho's in West Virginia cause they all dance there... should you mind stray to such matters.... counter-intuitive I know...
