‘Wonder what they have out in area 51?”

Not much anymore, area 51 is essentially shut down and the black projects moved to an Air Station in the rockies.

Oh. I did not know. I remember when they used the F-117 in Panama for the first time. I wonder if there are any Top Secret Drones.

No problem. After all, Obama got Congressional approval first, didn't he?

Because if he didn't, that would be unconstitutional, and the media would be all over him. /s

I really agree with that idea. We should pull all our guys home and start a 10 year effort to rebuild the USA. A new start is required without the huge Federal intervention everywhere.

Yes, the pentagon never misses a chance to mess up a good thing, the new ones will be ten times as big, have a 100 mile range, carry ten times as many weapons and have three pilots.

Since Obama’s new “bestest buddy” Bill Kristol is so intent on the U.S. fighting in Libya, let's chip in and buy Billy Boy an AK-47 a couple thousand rounds of ammo and parachute his sorry butt into the middle of Libya.

I have thought about the same thing... it is amazing that during Obamas war no women or children have been maimed or killed...

I think the Chinese dishwashers bought all that top secret neat stuff up a couple years ago.
