Former Governor Jesse Ventura went further in his 9/11 skepticism than ever before today when he told the Howard Stern Show of his fear that elements of the U.S. government carried out the attack, stating, "I hate to fear....that we possibly did it to ourselves."
"There's a lot of very difficult questions that have not been answered and no one seems to want to provide any answers," Ventura told Stern, adding that the most prescient was, "That a third building could fall into its own footprint five hours later having not been struck by much of anything....the 9/11 Commission didn't even address the issue.
Pressed by Stern as to what he thought had happened, Ventura stated, "I hate to fear what could have happened that possibly we did it to ourselves," to which Stern responded "you're kidding me".
Ventura explained that he worked in demolitions when he was in the Navy and questioned how the buildings could fall at the rate of gravity.

Prepare for the MSM to start the propaganda train rolling by calling ventura a crackpot - when in reality, he's a patriot who wants answers from those in charge.

He's also a former mayor, governor and member of the armed forces - of course there remains the possibility that he is fame hungry, but if he was, why would he run for governor of minnesota, instead of heading straight for hollywood?
"These two buildings were white elephants, they were losing money, they had asbestos in them, and they were being required by law to do over a billion dollars worth of asbestos removal," said Ventura, pointing out that WTC leaseholder Larry Silverstein made $7 billion dollars from his insurance claim after the attacks.
Ventura first went public with his questions about 9/11 during an on camera interview with Alex Jones in June 2006. He expanded on his thoughts during two subsequent radio interviews in April and May of this year.

How/why does the fact Jesse Ventura used to be a wrestler qualify him as a nutjob? So all wrestlers are nutjobs? The Rock is a nutjob? If wrestlers are nutjobs, then surely actors are too, because wrestlers are acting, it's just a form or entertainment. To call him a nutjob for being a wrestler is so bigoted it's unreal, is this what America has come to?

I can almost believe there really is a conspiracy to cover up 9/11 when the only 'celebrities' coming forward are those that are easily ridiculed. Much like the campaign to discredit UFOs.

I guess I'm in the crowd that will chalk him up as a nutjob.
