Hi Killtown,

This is interesting, especially the huge discrepancy between the estimate and actual cost of clean-up. Wonder who were those four, who clearned the mess up apart from the CD who worked at the OKC as well.

Also, were you actually a CIA spy or any of them tapping our conversation? Somebody did a good job and now my account there has been cancelled!

Did you write me back?

Indeed-- that 60 people died making the towers is rather striking.

I don't believe 60 workers died during construction. Every thing I have read mentioned no deaths at all during construction of the towers. What source do you have for this info?

Nick da 1da was very creative in the production of "Loose Change 2" .
I enjoyed the detail and creativity that went into making it.
The teams who are researching the 911 info are very professional and have quality video repro equipment.
Very convincing with no doubt that the info presented is quality and the repro thought out.
Thanks agian for all you have done and are continuing to do to presnt this mess in such a great view.
