I was going to post this myself, but you beat me to it. It doesn't get more hardcore than this. You couldn't ask for more definitive proof. How the mainstream media and academic world are going to ignore this is beyond my imagination. I mean, actual un-ignited nano thermite has now been found and identified in WTC dust samples! Mind blowing.

Danish Scientist on TV: Nano-thermite Behind Collapse of WTC Buildings on 9/11, Not Planes

http://uncensored.co.nz/2009/04/12/danish-scientist-talks-for-10-minutes-on-tv-about-nano-thermite-found-in-the-dust-at-the-wtc/

On Monday morning on April the 6th, Professor Niels Harrit of Copenhagen University in Denmark, who is an expert in nano-chemistry, was interviewed for an entire 10 minutes during a news program on the topic of the nano-thermite found in the dust from the World Trade Centre.  This explosive interview is at YouTube, with English subtitles here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_tf25lx_3o

In this interview, Harrit, who is one of the nine scientists responsible for the pivotal paper entitled: Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe,  talks about how their research, which was conducted over 18 months, led to the conclusion that planes did not cause the collapse of the three buildings at the WTC on 9/11.

He says that they found such large quantities of nano-thermite in the WTC dust, that he believes that this explosive compound, which also has the ability to melt metal,  must have been brought into the WTC site in tonnes, on pallets.   Consequently, he suggests that we need to address this matter with those who were in charge of the security at the World Trade Centre on 9/11.

Harrit, like Dr Steven Jones who played a major role in this ground-breaking research, refers to their findings as “the loaded gun” and indicated that people with the military might be able to enlighten us more on the little-known topic of nano-thermite.

The Discussion section of the Harrit et al. paper Active Thermatic Material Found in WTC Dust http://www.bentham-open.org/pages/content.php?TOCPJ/2009/00000002/00000001/7TOCPJ.SGM mentions that they are going to continue to pursue related lines of research, and try and establish where the nano-thermite was derived from. So hopefully this is not the last from these scientists.

Here are a few interesting points from the paper that relate to the TV interview:

They were able to determine that there must have been a huge amount of nano-thermite moved into the WTC site - Niels Harrit mentioned tonnes and pallets  (in Danish),  by weighing the samples of the red/gray chips in comparison with the weight of the other dust, minus chunks of concrete and glass.

A 1.6g sample that was taken not far away from the WTC plaza and collected by Ms MacKinley, yielded 1.74 mg of chips. Thus, the fraction of red/gray chips was 0.1% by weight. Another sample yielded 69 red/gray chips in a 4.9 g sample of dust that had had the chunks of glass and concrete removed from it. They are going to do more studies in this area and try and refine an estimate of how much nano-thermite was used, I understand, (refer p 23 ).

In the paper they asked the question: "Did the Technology to Make Highly Exothermic Nano-thermite exist prior to 9/11?" They cite a report by Gash et al. dated April 2000 - 17 months before 9/11 which showed that it did - it was cutting edge technology by the looks of it - but who knows.
 This site relates to the said Gash: https://www-pls.llnl.gov/?url=about_pls-scientific_staff-gash_a

They also mentioned that a report on an April 2001 conference discloses who was known to be working on such explosives at that time. The 221st National Meeting of the American Chemical Society held in San Diego featured a symposium on Defense Applications of Nanomaterials. The session provided a video on the work going on, which was 10 years old approx. "At this point in time, all of the military services and some DOE and academic laboratories have active R & D programs aimed at exploiting the unique properties of nanomaterials that have potential to be used in energetic formulations for advanced explosives.." ( p 26 ).

Plus they mention on p 29 that "No red/gray chips having the characteristics delineated here were found in dust generated by controlled demolition using conventional explosives and methods, for the Stardust Resort & Casino in Las Vegas (demolished 13 March 2007) and the Key Bank in Salk Lake City (demolished 18 August 2007).

This and other reasons are presumably why Neils Harrit suggested we should ask the military about nanothermite during the April the 6th TV interview.

How are these researchers certain that the dust samples they were given were really from the WTC rubble?

What is to stop a hoaxer from giving them dust from elsewhere containing nanothermite and iron nanospheres?

I am not saying that this is the case in Jones' experiments, but the method of collection and source of materials is as important as the results themselves.



Quote
The earliest-collected sample came from Mr. Frank Delessio
who, according to his videotaped testimony [17], was
on the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge about the time
the second tower, the North Tower, fell to the ground. He
saw the tower fall and was enveloped by the resulting thick
dust which settled throughout the area. He swept a handful
of the dust from a rail on the pedestrian walkway near the
end of the bridge, about ten minutes after the fall of the
North Tower. He then went to visit his friend, Mr. Tom
Breidenbach, carrying the dust in his hand, and the two of
them discussed the dust and decided to save it in a plastic
bag. On 11/15/2007, Breidenbach sent a portion of this dust
to Dr. Jones for analysis. Breidenbach has also recorded his
testimony about the collection of this dust sample on videotape
[17]. Thus, the Delessio/Breidenbach sample was collected
about ten minutes after the second tower collapsed. It
was, therefore, definitely not contaminated by the steelcutting
or clean-up operations at Ground Zero, which began
later. Furthermore, it is not mixed with dust from WTC 7,
which fell hours later.

On the morning of 9/12/2001, Mr. Stephen White of New
York City entered a room in his apartment on the 8th floor of
1 Hudson Street, about five blocks from the WTC. He found
a layer of dust about an inch thick on a stack of folded laundry
near a window which was open about 4 inches (10 cm).
Evidently the open window had allowed a significant amount
of dust from the WTC destruction the day before to enter the
room and cover the laundry. He saved some of the dust and,
on 2/02/2008, sent a sample directly to Dr. Jones for analysis.
Another sample was collected from the apartment building
at 16 Hudson Street by Mr. Jody Intermont at about 2 pm
on 9/12/2001. Two small samples of this dust were simultaneously
sent to Dr. Jones and to Kevin Ryan on 2/02/2008
for analysis. Intermont sent a signed affidavit with each
sample verifying that he had personally collected the (nowsplit)
sample; he wrote:

“This dust, which came from the ‘collapsed’
World Trade Center Towers, was collected from
my loft at the corner of Reade Street and Hudson
Street on September 12, 2001. I give permission
to use my name in connection to this
evidence”.
[Signed 31 January 2008 in the presence
of a witness who also signed his name].

On the morning of 9/11/2001, Ms. Janette MacKinlay
was in her fourth-floor apartment at 113 Cedar St./110 Liberty
St. in New York City, across the street from the WTC
plaza. As the South Tower collapsed, the flowing cloud of
dust and debris caused windows of her apartment to break
inward and dust filled her apartment. She escaped by quickly
wrapping a wet towel around her head and exiting the building.
The building was closed for entry for about a week. As
soon as Ms. MacKinlay was allowed to re-enter her apartment,
she did so and began cleaning up. There was a thick
layer of dust on the floor. She collected some of it into a
large sealable plastic bag for possible later use in an art
piece. Ms. MacKinlay responded to the request in the 2006
paper by Dr. Jones by sending him a dust sample. In November
2006, Dr. Jones traveled to California to visit Ms.
MacKinlay at her new location, and in the company of several
witnesses collected a second sample of the WTC dust
directly from her large plastic bag where the dust was stored.
She has also sent samples directly to Dr. Jeffrey Farrer and
Kevin Ryan. Results from their studies form part of this report.
Another dust sample was collected by an individual from
a window sill of a building on Potter Street in NYC. He has
not given permission for his name to be disclosed, therefore
his material is not included in this study. That sample, however,
contained red/gray chips of the same general composition
as the samples described here.

Note that the scientists themselves did not collect the samples.

Also note that the samples were not given to the scientists until 5+ years after 9/11.

For myself, a trained research scientist, this is an extreme point of contention to the validity of the claims made by Jones et al.

Those are great points. Unless the chain of possession can be verified, the oppositon will just raise the charge that the chips were planted in the dust samples. Not that I doubt for one moment the authenticity of their findings, (the video of pouring, orange, molten metal taken two minutes before the south tower collapse is hard evidence backing up the themite claims) but the debunkers will just try and impeach it with the claim that the chain of possession cannot be verified, and the argument will just go on and on and on. I just hope they can provide verification of the chain of possession.

My understanding is that the collectors are willing to testify under oath concerning the collection of the samples.  Seeing as entire countries can be wiped off the map by NWO mandated genocides and insanely incessant desires to control history, I am not sure these people are to public at the moment. Not sure though. In addition, the three months of molten lava could hardly be explained without this material.  I believe the ball is in NIST's court to disprove this 18 month peer reviewed study.  Stephen Jones does not seem like the kind of guy to base 18 months of work on something so easily debunkable.

http://www.opednews.com/articles/Was-it-Nanotech-Thermite--by-John-R-Moffett-090415-784.html

OpEd News managing editor claims that nano-thermite found in the WTC dust is shoddy research and that the Open Chemical Physics Journal isn't really a peer reviewed journal.

Quote from:
The researchers used supposed samples of the dust that spread over lower Manhattan after the WTC buildings collapsed. Several samples that had been kept by residents for years as “souvenirs” of the disaster were given to the researchers between 2006 and 2008, many years after the disaster. This raises serious “chain of custody” issues for the evidence which would almost certainly preclude the samples from being used in a court of law. But assuming the samples were valid, there are many more serious issues with the work of this research group.

First, with regard to the idea that this work was published in a “peer reviewed scientific journal”, it should be noted that the Open Chemical Physics Journal is a pay-to-publish online-only journal that has published a total of 12 articles in its history. They have no track record, and no impact factor in the field. In essence, they are a vanity publisher for scientists who can’t get their work published anywhere else. To call them a peer-reviewed science journal is a real stretch.

Before I get into details about why this work is so poorly done, and why the interpretations of the researchers are so suspect, it is important to state that the thermite argument was put forward by these same researchers years ago, and the idea was fully debunked years ago. See for example here: http://www.911myths.com/WTCTHERM.pdf.

It is also important to note that thermite is not explosive, and it is difficult to ignite. It also often burns relatively slowly, and not uniformly, making it a very poor choice for building demolition.

Nano thermite has an energy release rate comparable with high explosives YOU ARE THEREFORE WRONG!.

The red grey chips ignited with a bare flame so was easy to ignite,YOU ARE WRONG!

Nano thermite burns rapidly and is an excellent choice for cutting and weakening steel beams.YOU ARE WRONG!.

Quote
Putting a thin coat of thermite onto a structural element, as suggested by the fact that all of the red/grey chips found in the dust samples were very thin flakes, would not result in the reliable cutting of support structures that would be required to bring the WTC down.

Just because the chips are thin does not mean it was applied in this way,it is after all the remnants of the unreacted nano thermite,STRAW MAN!

Quote
How could there have been tens of thousands of tons of "nanotechnology enhanced super-thermite" in these buildings?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citigroup_Center

Quote
He convinced Citicorp to hire a crew of welders to repair the fragile building without informing the public, a task made easier by the press strike at that time.

For the next three months, a construction crew welded two-inch-thick steel plates over each of the skyscraper's 200 bolted joints during the night, after each work day, almost unknown to the general public.

It is possible! STRAW MAN!

Quote
The researchers also showed that the chips could be ignited, and that they burned at a lower temperature than normal thermite. This is of course not surprising since metals such as aluminum do burn if they are complexed with oxidizing agents, and are heated enough. Rust is an oxidizing agent if heated high enough, and is the oxidizing constituent of many types of thermite.

So just throwing a whole bunch of building materials together will produce this highly explosive material.The problem with this theory is the mixture must be in the exact amounts.How is this possible in a totally uncontrolled event.

NONSENSICAL!

Quote
Still others, like Dr. Judy Wood, believe that the US used directed energy weapons to destabilize the molecular structure of the buildings, thus causing them to collapse into atomic dust.

The inevitable Dr Judy coup de gras prove your motivations for printing this article.

CONCLUSION!.

A mixture of pseudo scientific hogwash,straw man arguments and ridicule of 9/11 truth.We have seen it all before.YEAH! sure Niels Harrit works at the university of Copenhagen but does not understand his own work.Yet you confuse thermite and nano thermite and disregard the latest developments in nano technology.Pull your head out of your arse Dr Moffatt!.

Thanks for the post rio.  This work must be very good as it evidently appears to be a threat to the criminals in government, given all the disinformation agents who are coming out of the woodwork and trying to mislead the public about it.  
This OpEd news managing editor must think that those who read his dispatches can't think for themselves.  The research was naturally very comprehensive, as Harrit et al knew what they were up against, given the political implications of their findings.

OpEd's Moffatt can try and mislead his readers into thinking that thermite was not used when there were clear signs that it was even before the nano-thermite chips were found.  One of the clear signs are in the videos that show the yellow-hot molten metal pouring out from the side of the South Tower, (WTC 2) and the solid structures disintegrating. Refer these two clips:

2. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8564772103237441151

What can account for this?   For more on this refer the below paper by Steven E. Jones 'Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings Completely Collapse?' by Dr. Steven E.

In addition, I am pretty sure you will hear Kevin Ryan mention in the interview posted above, that even official FEMA scientists - (Jonathan Barnett, Ronald R. Biederman, and R. D. Sisson, Jr.) substantiated the evidence that thermate was used to bring down the WTC towers.  Refer Appendix C: Limited Metallurgical Examination in World Trade Center Building Performance Study: Data Collection, Preliminary Observations, and Recommendations, Federal  Emergency Management Agency, FEMA 403, May 2002 http://www.fema.gov/pdf/library/fema403_apc.pdf

  Thermite is very very efficent. I don't think they expected it would be found.


If tonnes of the nano-thermite were used at the WTC, as the evidence shows it was [1], how could the criminals in government not have expected it to have been found?

They knew people would be looking for explosives, given the way WTC 1, 2 and 7 had collapsed and disintegrated.  Plus, in the aftermath there were signs of an explosive material having been used also, as explosions were occurring in the rubble and there were fires that could not be put out with water.  Kevin Ryan, co-editor of the Journal For 911 Studies, http://www.journalof911studies.com/ , states that there was an enormous amount of evidence from 9/11 that pointed to a thermetic material having being used, [2].

Because they knew it would be found, NIST employed diversionary tactics and never considered explosives or pyrotechnic materials in any of its hypotheses. States Kevin Ryan in his paper 'The Top Ten Connections Between NIST and Nanothermites' "This omission is at odds with several other striking facts; first, the requirement of the national standard for fire investigation (NFPA 921), which calls for testing related to thermite and other pyrotechnics, and second, the extensive experience NIST investigators have with explosive and thermite materials." [3].

Indeed, NIST personnel were experts in nanothermites.  Also, explosive, sol-gel nano-thermites were developed by US government scientists, at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories.  Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories were involved with NIST.

Thermite
By John S. Hatch
http://informationclearinghouse.info/article22408.htm

April 14, 2009 “Information Clearing House” — -A recent article published in the respected peer-reviewed Open Chemical Physics Journal by nine noted scientists offers incontrovertible proof that the dust from the Twin Towers and Building Seven of the World Trade Center contains small intact samples of Thermite.

Thermite is a highly explosive agent consisting mostly of aluminum and iron oxide, and is used to cut steel in building controlled demolitions, and is also used in welding and in military applications.

Using optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy, and differential scanning calorimetry, the scientists were able to determine that the Thermite present is of a specialized type called Nano-thermite or Superthermite. It burns hotter and has a lower ignition temperature than normal Thermite, and is produced at laboratories such as Lawrence Livermore, incidentally thought to be the same lab that produced the anthrax sent out shortly after 9/11.

Nano-thermite could not be accidentally present in dust samples collected at four different sites, nor could it be the result of clean-up operations at ground zero, as one of the samples was retrieved a mere ten minutes or so after the collapse of the second tower. All samples show the same consistency.

This would explain the streams of molten steel (not aluminum) falling from one of the towers, and the fact that steel remained molten in the rubble for more than a month after the event. There is no scientific explanation for this other than the use of Thermite, which can achieve temperatures of 3500 C, while under ideal conditions jet fuel can achieve just approximately 285 C. It would also explain the otherwise physically impossible near freefall speed of the three buildings, and how they were able to fall so homogeneously.

So what does it mean? It means that there is proof (which so far no one has attempted to refute) that the WTC buildings (and more than three thousand lives, counting the ongoing deaths of first responders and ordinary NYC citizens caused by the dust) were brought down by controlled demolition in a planned and purposeful manner by elements of the Bush Administration, most likely as a ‘catalyzing event’ , the new Pearl Harbor’ fondly mentioned by neo-con PNAC (Plan for the New American Century) and designed to galvanize American citizens in support of attacking other nations and restricting human rights at home. ‘Full Specter Domination’.patriotact12dees

This was the excuse or invading Afghanistan and Iraq (there were plans for Syria and Iran as well, and perhaps others), for justifying domestic spying, disappearances, torture, and murder. Murder based on lies and deception, and the killing of American citizens.

Knowing, as he must by now, that 9/11 was conceived and executed not from some dark cave in Afghanistan, but much more likely from some deep bunker in dank Cheneystan, will President Obama still insist on ‘looking ahead’? Just how deep is America’s reserve of dismissal and denial?

I feel for all the victims of 9/11, past, present and future, but was especially haunted by those poor souls who chose to jump to their deaths, or who fell. Surely the people who did this need to be brought to justice. Otherwise America is not ‘looking ahead’. She has her eyes shut tight while she babbles inanities.

Debunking the Debunkers.
 This YouTube clip includes excerpts from Dr Steven Jones, Richard Gage of http://www.ae911truth.org/ and Jeanette MacKinley, who lived in New York City at the time of the tragedy and provided one of the dust samples referred to in the Harrit et al paper.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLu3VBGF5As (5.44 mins)

Hear Richard Gage say: “…This is high-tech stuff. Nano-sized particles of iron and aluminum. This is not a product that’s found in any office…whatsoever. We have again potassium, manganese, iron, aluminum. And this is extremely explosive stuff…only recently been produced in papers by Lawrence Livermore Labs, Los Alamos. This stuff is not made in a cave in Afghanistan.”


This following excerpt is from Kevin Ryan about Lawrence Livermore Labs, from his paper: 'Manuel Garcia Sees Physics That Don't Exist'  http://911review.com/articles/ryan/garcia.html

"Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Garcia's employer, appears to be where explosive thermite was invented, and it continues to be a focus of research there. (1) At LLNL, government scientists have learned how to combine the exothermic power of the thermite reaction with organic moieties to produce a thermite reaction that can do pressure/volume work (i.e. turn massive quantities of concrete and other building materials into dust). From the research of Steven Jones, we know that the thermite reaction likely played a role in bringing the towers down, and it would not be surprising if technology developed by LLNL was involved.

HIT NEWS/PRIME TIME
VIDEO: 9/11 No Longer Taboo Topic in Denmark


Amalija Šašek


http://www.javno.com/en-world/video--911-no-longer-taboo-topic-in-denmark_250703

Every day, thousands of people become aware that the WTC was destroyed with explosives, says dr. Niels Harrit.

Scientists found high quality super-explosives in the dust gathered after the fall of the WTC towers on September 11, 2001. Their findings go against all of the investigation results that were financed by the George W. Bush administration.

They discovered “nanostructured super-thermite”, which is a combination of aluminium and iron oxide. Thermite is known for its effectiveness in “cutting” metal, and when the reaction is started, it cuts through steel with ease, like a hot knife cuts though butter. Its use is common in the steel industry, the production of hand grenades and the controlled demolition of buildings. The chemical reaction, created by using thermite, is characterized by extremely high temperatures which are usually focused on a small space in a short period of time.
Investigators found red-grey plates in the dust found after the destruction of the “twins”, which scientists identified as the remains of an active high quality substance created via nanotechnology, whose characteristics reveal that a high energy pyrotechnic or explosive material is in question, which falls into the thermite category.

The international sale and distribution of super-thermite is strictly supervised and limited. Dr. Niels Harrit participated in the investigation of the fall of the WTC towers. He is a professor of chemistry at the Copenhagen University. After a study by international scientists was published, their discovery about the fall of the towers was broadcast by Danish national television, at prime time, in a show where dr. Niels Harrit was a guest.

“Scientific research showed that the two airplanes were not the cause of the fall of the WTC towers in 2001. Nano-thermite explosives were found in the rubble, which could not have been in the planes. Scientists believe that a number of tonnes of explosives were placed in the buildings” said the show host on Danish national television before his guest came on, who was the scientist dr. Niels Harrit.

Thermite can heat steel to 2,500 degrees Celsius

Harrit says that they cannot claim that only thermite was in question, which dates back to 1893. He described the behaviour of the reactive substance and said that it creates iron heated to 2,500 degrees Celsius.

“Nano-thermite is reduced to tiny particles, perfectly mixed. When they react, the heating occurs much faster. Thermite can serve as the perfect explosive, and it contains much more energy than ordinary dynamite” explains the scientist.

When asked why he thinks that nano-thermite caused the twin towers to fall, Harrit said that probably because that substance was there.

-.-www.wtc7.net-.-WTC 7“There were only two planes, and three towers fell. We know how much dust there was after the fall. We also know how much inactivated thermite we found. That is like a loaded pistol, the material did not react for a reason. We are talking about tonnes, probably 100 tonnes of the material” explains Harrit.

Hundreds of thousands of people around the world know how the “twins” were demolished

When asked how nobody noticed when palettes of material were moved into the WTC buildings, the scientist said that this is a good question for those who were maintaining the building.

He said that his research is not a revolutionary discovery for the hundreds of thousands of people around the world who are aware how the buildings were destroyed. “That is crystal clear” said Harrit.

“Our investigation is only the last nail in the coffin. Every day thousands of people become aware that the WTC was demolished. That process cannot be stopped.

“Why did nobody notice the nano thermite earlier” asked the television show host.

“All that was needed is to look at the dust with a microscope. The largest particles are only 1mm in size, and cannot be seen with the naked eye. A full 18 months was needed to prepare the scientific article” answered Harrit.

He says he has been working on the investigation for a number of years, and was prompted to do so by the fall of WTC 7, which fell like a deck of cards in a few seconds, a few hours after the fall of the other two towers.

Super-Thermite Demolished Twin Towers on 9-11: Game Over for Criminals and Cover Up

To counter the primer paint argument.

In the document NCSTAR 1-3C appendix D,firstly in figure D-1 there is a list of the makeup of the primer paint used on the steel.The contents of that paint included 23% ZINC.So the logical first step is to check out the Zinc content in the red/grey chips in Figure 7 in the Nano thermite paper which shows 4 samples had zero Zinc.Therefore the samples are not primer paint!.

Point 2.The red grey chips were separated using magnets yet the primer paint used is not magnetic,the Fe2O3 iron oxide is anti ferromagnetic.Therefore the samples are not primer paint!.

Point 3!.back to NCSTAR1-3C appendix D figure D 2,which shows the mud cracking of the paint at 650 degrees C.The red/grey chips had their first exothermic spike at 450 degrees c yet the primer paint had no such exothermic spike and merely cracked at 200 degrees c higher and for over 1 hour.Therefore the samples are not primer paint!.

Point 4,photograph D-4,shows black scale between the paint and steel at 650 degrees c.Notice the paint has merely curled up at the edges and has not gone POOF!.What is the black scale? it is probably magnetite Fe3O4 which is magnetic but was not found in any of the red grey chip samples.This is the final nail in the "The red/grey chips are iron oxide primer paint" MYTH!.

Going from a paint cracked photograph at 650 degrees c for over 1 hour to instantly and rapidly igniting chips at 450 degrees c is such a leap in logic that the suggestion is patently absurd.

That will come in handy for posting in comment sections, as the matter of the paint being mistaken for thermite chips has been a talking point for the trolls.  The fact that, as you mention, the chips can be easily separated from dust and paint using a magnet, amongst other obvious ways to differentiate them, should make it apparent to anyone that there is no mistaking the red/gray chips for paint.  ::)

The trolls have also been bringing up the "Pull it" of Larry Silverstein and suggesting that it didn't mean demolish as a means of distracting people from the news of the nano-thermite. John Kerry more-or-less verified that Silverstein meant pull it, when he said it was brought down in a "controlled" fashion. Refer:
List of Morons Who Slipped Up And Practically Admitted 9/11 Was An Inside Job
http://100777.com/911/slip-ups

Also, there has been a RonMossad debunking troll who has been posting links to his disinformation website underneath this story, in which he tries to mislead people into thinking that the thermite found by Harrit et al does not differ from conventional thermite.  He is counting on people not having bothered to have read the paper.  Everyone needs to make sure they do read it and familiarize themselves with the facts, so you can take the info to other folks.

Wonder if the NOVAVAX and the crew were pissed off that NIST and NAS are being completely exposed as NWO accessories to the events of 9/11 after the fact.
