<< Can you take your thrift acct funds (tax deferred)and put them into a Roth IRA (after tax funds) upon retirement? Where does the tax come in? >>

Yes, you can roll your TSP account into an IRA after you retire. You've already been given the answer about how you do this and the tax treatment. The AGI limit for converting from traditional to Roth IRA is $100,000 unless you file married, filing separately, in which case you cannot convert.
