To address his point that since Osama hasn't been charged there must be something fishy going on,
I'm thinking just because Osama took credit for Al Qaeda planning the attacks does not mean that he himself planned them. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed admitted to masterminding the 9/11 attacks, along with 50 other terrorist attacks, so how could we charge Osama when we have someone telling us that THEY did it?
It doesn't mean that 9/11 was a coverup though. That's just bad reasoning.
Al-Qaida No. 3 says he planned 9/11

realshanti...check some of the History Channel shows, and get both sides.
Sorry, but a cleverly edited video with sound clips dedicated to the 'explosion' theory....just not credible, since as you know, anything can be edited to attempt to 'prove' a point of view.
I once saw a very clever video of Gov Bush debating himself, after he was 'appointed' President. Wish I knew where it is....funny as all get out

In my opinion people like Jessie are doing the same thing they claim to be against. Anyone who questions their theories is a neocon fascist. Which is basically the same thing as calling us unpatriotic. I find the whole thing pretty hypocritical.

But I don't believe the government would have gained anything by planning the 9/11 attacks.
A giant mess in the Middle East,
increased terror activity worldwide,
horrible approval ratings of the President, Vice President, Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, etc.,
a depressed US economy,
no positive legacy.
Okay, you'll say "more control over the people", but really if that was their concern I think there would have been many more terror attacks to terrify Americans into surrendering ourselves to our government. Which has never happened.
So for the most part I believe what I SAW that day and that was a terrorist attack. I don't call it the "official story" I call it the truth. Now whether the Bush Administration had a plan ready in case of such an event that would allow us to invade the Middle East, that's a whole other story.

Just because you don't believe that 9/11 was an "inside job", or that 9/11 wasn't a huge cover up doesn't mean that you don't have skepticism towards the "official" story. Quite frankly I think the 9/11 Truth movement has been very negative, blind, and has turned into a money making scheme.
People making up ridiculous claims like demolition from their mothers basement, a set of UNCLASSIFIED documents and a copy of final cut pro are anything but experts.
And when "experts" do have opinions on the matter, they usually don't have all of the data, and aren't experts in that particular area...
for instance an Army bomb maker said it was impossible for Oklahoma city to have only had one bomb, when it actually...was just one bomb.
The 9/11 Truth movement has become a joke by it's own doing, stop making up stupid theories shouting "inside job" and actually push for the release of videos in a professional manner that people can respect.
I like Jesse Ventura's politics, but when it comes to 9/11 Truth he's wacky.
Even people like Ron Paul who acknowledge the military industrial complex don't believe this garbage.
Of course I'm going to get slammed for even saying this, because people in the 9/11 Truth movement can't say anything remotely intelligent and instead spout: "you'll see!" or 'you're a neocon, fascist fool"..
.which is just an extension of why I don't take it seriously in the slightest along with all the scientific/forensic evidence.
Oh, and by the way I'm a Libertarian, that is disgusted by how a few people with vivid imaginations can make the Libertarian cause be labeled as crazy, when really it's what this nation was founded on.
