Paul came to international prominence in early June, 2006, as a result of his central involvement as an investigator the month prior into the suspicious activities of members of the faculty of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. These investigations, paired with investigations being conducted by Ontario police eventually led to the arrests of 17 terrorist suspects by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).
He is the author of such best-selling books as Dunces of Doomsday: 10 Blunders That Gave Rise to Radical Islam, Terrorist Regimes, And the Threat of an American Hiroshima (2006), The Al Qaeda Connection: International Terrorism, Organized Crime, And the Coming Apocalypse (2005), Osama’s Revenge: THE NEXT 9/11 : What the Media and the Government Haven’t Told You (2004), The Vatican Exposed: Money, Murder, and the Mafia (2003), Everything You Always Wanted to Know about the Catholic Church But Were Afraid to Ask for Fear of Excommunication (1990).

He has been the subject of a PBS documentary and the subject of programs on the Discovery and History channels. He is a frequent guest on such national news networks as Fox News, MSNBC, and NPR.
As a journalist, Paul served as the editor/publisher of The Metro, the largest weekly newspaper in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The Metro, under his leadership/ownership, was named one of the best newspapers in the state for editorial content by the Pennsylvania Newspaper Publishers’ Association, and, in 1993, he became the only journalist to capture three first-place Keystone Press Awards in three distinct categories in the same year. In addition, he has penned feature articles for National Review (one of which sparked the longest running print debate in the history of a major periodical) and has served as a regular correspondent on world affairs for World Net Daily.
