Gaddafi’s Son, toured U.S. in weeks before Libya conflict

A son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi toured U.S. ports and military facilities just weeks before he helped lead deadly attacks on rebels protesting his father’s authoritarian regime.

Khamis Gaddafi, 27, spent four weeks in the U.S. as part of an internship with AECOM, a global infrastructure company with deep business interests in Libya, according to Paul Gennaro, AECOM’s Senior Vice President for Global Communications. The trip was to include visits to the Port of Houston, Air Force Academy, National War College and West Point, Gennaro said.

I’m VERY SURPRISED it was AECOM and not GE; I mean considering how well the Gaddafi family is at squirrelin’ money away.

General ‘imagination at work’ Electric; Paid NO FEDERAL TAXES in 2010′

GE’s success at avoiding taxes is nothing short of extraordinary.

– The company, led by Immelt, earned $14.2 billion in profits in 2010, but it paid not a penny in taxes because the bulk of those profits, some $9 billion, were offshore.

– In fact, GE got a $3.2 billion tax benefit.

IF you want to close the deficit, and who doesn’t; STOP the corporate tax loopholes!
