It is nearly 2,000 years older than the Poverty Point site. The budget negotiations dragged on, and by June -- in spite of his campaign promise -- President Bush told congressional leaders that changing circumstances in the national economy meant that tax increases would have to be part of any overall budget package. CNN's Peter Arn ett in Baghdad did things that made him hated by the USA's government: he made reports that the Pentagon could not censor.� He visited the bomb shelter and witnessed the fact that there was no evidence of a military installation.� Arnett did a similar thing when he witnessed a milk factory that we bombed while claiming that it was a chemical-weapon facility.� Arnett toured the bombed ruins and found that it was indeed a milk factory.� He toured the factory the summer before, as it produced milk. [291] Those inc idents were similar to America’s 1986 bombing of Libya, as Ronald Reagan told the world that he had "irrefutable" proof that Libya was behind the bombing of a nightclub in Germany that killed some American soldiers.� That nightclub bombing was Reagan's rationale for bombing Libya, which killed up to 100 people, including children.� It turned out that Reagan was lying when he said that, for he had no "irrefutable" proof.� The "proof" was allegedly NSA-intercepted communications between Libya and its embassy in East Berlin.� Not even the Germans, who helped decode the messages, believed the "proof." [292] � The complete "intercepted" communications have never been made public, and the USA promised the "irrefutable" proof to the UK and France because we wanted them to assist the bombing raid (it was launched from the UK, but France refused to let us use their air space, and we “accidentally” bombed their embassy during the raid on Libya).� Our allies let us bomb first and provide proof later.� When it came time to provide the proof, the USA admitted that it did not have any, which was a betrayal reported throughout the world…except in the USA's mainstream media.
