Ventura wrestles with what really happened on 9/11

Minnesota's most colorful former governor, Jesse Ventura, says he's been doing some research into the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, and it's looking to him like the truth about what brought buildings down has yet to come out, in part because of a media coverup.

Appearing Wednesday on "The Alex Jones Show," a syndicated radio program, Ventura said based on his demolition training as a Navy SEAL, a visit to Ground Zero a few weeks after 9/11 and watching "super-slow motion" video of the falling buildings, he's concluded the structures look like they fell because of a controlled demolition.

He goes on to describe a third building that was not hit by a plane but collapsed later in the day. "Two planes struck two buildings," he said "But how is it that a third building fell five hours later?

"How could this building just implode into its own footprint five hours later? That's my first question. … The 9/11 Commission didn't even devote one page to that in their big volume of investigation."

But no can tell this story better than Ventura himself.  To hear the radio interview, go here.

It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

No, the lone comment to your article is daft. Ventura is right, and video tape shows the collapse was pure detonation. And WTC 7: it’s a pure take-down, no doubt. Mr. Commentator needs to pull his head out of his ass. When he does, he will see that this crap does not happen in America without help from the war machine (i.e. a stand down on that day which prevented accurate detection of planes headed toward New York).

He needs to get a grip on real life. Don’t tell him that James Files has a story about JFK that he should hear. The poor lackey would come apart at the seams if he heard that one.

America is full of dupes. That’s why we are losing so quickly that which our hard-working parents and Constitutional forefathers set up for this nation.

Danny Wilson

I'm honored that Mr. Ventura "aka Danny Wilson" would take the time to respond to my comment. Who else would immediately turn the comment into a personal attack?
