Are the gold bars in Fort Knox really made of the precious metal?  Or has the government secretly sold off the stockpile and replaced it with tungsten bars that are painted gold?

Ron Paul wants to find out.

Giving legitimacy to aconspiracy theory that the gold in Fort Knox is fake, the iconoclast Republican congressman from Texas has asked adminstration officials to audit the purity of the nation's 700,000 gold bars held in Fort Knox, according to an internal Treasury document obtained by CNBC. Paul, a presidential candidate who chairs the House subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy, had previously called for the U.S. gold reserve to be counted and for a return to the gold standard. He now appears to be going a step further in his request that representatives from the U.S. Treasury Department and the U.S. Mint testify at a subcommittee hearing on June 23 about the authenticity of the nation's gold.

As a postscript to the story, CNBC asked for a tour of Fort Knox to film the gold, since our only footage of Fort Knox is from 1974. An official at the Mint told us that not he was not aware that any member of Congress had toured the facility since that year. Fort Knox is "a closed facility," the official said.

The audit of The Fed would be nice.
The audit of the U.S. Treasury would be outstanding.

Question: Reported slush fund accounts at the Vatican Bank with most of the Congress, Obama's kids, Hillary's family, a billion dollars in the name of the Chief Judge of the Supreme Court Roberts, was funded by the U.S. Treasury. An audit of the Treasury would reveal if this is true or not.

I know the government is rogue top down, bottom up, and inside out. An audit of the U.S. Treasury would expose the traitors. Let's audit The U.S. Treasury.

The US Fed is the biggest counterfeiter in the world--wouldn't surprise me at all if the US Treasury had gold plated tungsten bars in the vault. The only thing that would surprise me is the fact that even bothered with the pretense (vs empty vaults).

Unless of course they tried to pawn off the Tungsten bars to the Saudies for oil, and had them returned some time before 9/11/01.

The Americans I know don't deserve this government. As for the people in this country I DON'T know, I guess we're all going to get what THEY deserve.

Ron Paul has to know their is no gold in Ft. Knox. If their were we are bound by law to sell it to the federal reserve for 40.00 per ounce. I believe the year was 1933 this law was enacted.
