Ventura wrestles with what really happened on 9/11

Ventura wrestles with what really happened on 9/11. Read more on’s Political Agenda.

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.
