For maximum impact, add direct links. That lends credibility and makes it easier for the reader to get all of the information for themselves. If they own the research it will be more profound.

As for links...

As for links...I supplied a link at the bottom that links to each and every one of the points that were made.

Mod did it again! Jon Just moved this post to "off topic"

WTF? JON?

Maybe you weren't around

about a year or so ago, when 9/11 topics were permanently banned at the Daily Paul.
ALL 9/11 topics are put into Off-Topic, and have been for a long time.

What's the reason 9/11 was banned?

I worked as a network admin for 10 years (until 2010, with a top secret clearance) on Eglin AFB in Ft walton Beach Fla. I'm college educated, and I don't put forward things that are not verifiable. There is nothing that has happened in my 48 years that is more important to what has happened to this country than 9/11. Banning discussion of it or moving it to off topic which censors it is beyond bizarre for a site that is all about truth and outing the corruption of government. As for links...I supplied a link at the bottom that links to each and every one of the points that were made.

I think Jon is still in China. No?

The 'shadow government' -as

The 'shadow government' -as mentioned here,

Sept 11, 2001: Hours after the attacks, a "shadow government" is formed. Key congressional leaders say they didn't know this government-in-waiting had been established. [CBS, 3/2/02, Washington Post, 3/2/02]

is known as the Continuity Of Government(COG); it was first created by Dwight D. Eisenhower, and has been expanded ever since.

Great Synopsis

I've never heard or seen of a lot of the points you made so this was great to read. Very succinct and all in one place. Gonna bookmark this.

One important thing missed on this list..

and that is Donald Rumsfeld going on national television on September 10th and telling the American People that the pentagon had somehow "lost" over 2 TRILLION dollars, and that it was a matter of life and death for some. Of course he laughed after saying it too. I believe that is why building 7 was "pulled". It just happened to house the offices that would have held evidence of wrongdoings from what I understand. And if it was "pulled", how and why were there already explosives in it that enabled such a thing to happen? Are all buildings in NY just pre loaded with explosives just in case or what?

video to Rumsfeld admission... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rRqeJcuK-A

On another note...IT absolutely kills me that some 89 percent of Americans don't trust their government and/or think very badly about CONgress...yet they still swallow and regurgitate any damn thing they tell them. All the while chanting USA! USA! USA! It is terrible that the study of history doesn't mean more to Americans. We are the very worst of repeaters when it comes to ignorant things throughout history.

This is

awesome work here and thank you. I will spread this info around along with the videos of WTC buildings collapsing because of thermite bombs that were placed on the center beams of WTC 1 and 2. You should have also mentioned that no one was allowed to examine the steal from the buildings. This video.

To Greorith

Because everything is "Top Secret" due to "National Security" it's impossible for us to figure out what exactly brought down the towers, however just the other day I read on veteranstoday.com that Army Intel thinks 4 mini nuclear bombs were places in the buildings. 1 in each of the basements and 1 near the top of each tower. This makes sense as the fire kept burning for almost 2 MONTHS as they cleared the rubble...and of course the buildings were completely pulverized.

I still think that 9/11 is the key to getting the masses to wake up but some here at the DP (Jon) must still think 9/11 is counter productive to the RP campaign because most of the verifiable posts I have made regarding 9/11 always end up being moved into the "Off Topic" subject catagory where of course posts go to die a quick death.
