Former Governor Jesse Ventura Says WTC Collapse a Controlled Demolition

Published: Thu, 03 Apr 2008, 15:06:03 GMT Edited by Carly Zander Email this article Print this news article Share Content

AUSTIN, Texas, April 3 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- According to an appearance on the Alex Jones Show, former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura blasted the official 9/11 story - citing that evidence disproves the government's claims that jet fuel melted the Twin Towers' steel girders.

"How could those buildings fall at the speed of gravity - if you put a stopwatch on them both of those World Trade Center buildings were on the ground in ten seconds - how can that be?" asked Ventura. "Never before in the annals of history has a fire caused a steel structure building to fall to the ground like these two did."

Ventura said he was convinced the collapses of the towers and WTC Building 7 were too similar to the controlled demolition of Las Vegas hotels. Ventura has experience with explosives from Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL training and believes unequivocally the buildings were deliberately imploded.

"I was on the site within two weeks after it happened and I saw none of these pancakes - wouldn't they all be piled up in a huge mass on the ground and yet everything was blown into dust - when you look at it from that aspect none of it makes any sense," Ventura told the Alex Jones Show.

Ventura expressed regret that he had initially believed the official story because he could have used his power as governor to raise pointed questions in the media.

"I kicked myself when it initially happened that the light didn't go off but I was so shocked that this thing had even taken place that I apologize for not being more aware," said Ventura, adding that watching Loose Change at the insistence of his son was part of the catalyst for his wake up call.

The Governor's bold comments about 9/11 come on the heels of similar views expressed by American icon Willie Nelson during an interview on the same radio show in February.

I suggest Jesse get treatment from the damage of steroids during his wrestling career and also get a back issues of Popular mechanics.

I was there the next day. The “pancakes” were there. They were significantly submerged into the 7 story basement structure, only the top 30 floors or so were above ground...

What a fool.

"said Ventura, adding that watching Loose Change at the insistence of his son was part of the catalyst for his wake up call. ""

I wonder if Loose Change addressed the fact that the beams in the first 60 floors or so were wrapped in asbestos while all the floors above were not?

Besides, the pancake pile looked pretty tall to me.

It’s a shame so many people cannot seem to be postured and confident with the life they have lived . He strikes me as someone who needs some kind of attention to wake up in the morning .

Oh well ..

Jesse! That constant ringing in your ears should have been your first indication that you’ve been dropped on your head too many times. Give your fat@$$ girlfriend Rosie a big kiss for all the loony rug munchers you clueless maroon!

“””””How could those buildings fall at the speed of gravity - if you put a stopwatch on them both of those World Trade Center buildings were on the ground in ten seconds - how can that be?” asked Ventura. “Never before in the annals of history has a fire caused a steel structure building to fall to the ground like these two did.” “””

And he expected what? The building to fall at faster than gravity??? And if steel cannot be be melted by fire, how on earth does a black smith do his job??

Pity that Jesse spent his service time trying to blow things up, instead of understanding how things work (so he could blow things up better).

Uh, the ever-increasing weight, breaking each successive floor, as the thousands of tons of falling debris increased every second?

Just because pro wrestling is staged and just because Rosie as the Queen of Nice was a facade does not mean 911 was a government plot. People whose shoe size exceeds their I.Q. should sit down and shut up.

Saw him briefly on Larry King last week. I guess the steroids and head bangs have finally taken its toll. He comes off really angry and unstable. He was always dumb.

"How could those buildings fall at the speed of gravity - if you put a stopwatch on them both of those World Trade Center buildings were on the ground in ten seconds - how can that be?"

9.8 (32') meters per second squared. A body will fall 1138' from a dead stop after 10 seconds.

Well, “The Body” does specifically exclude the head.

This man is obviously qualified to offer an opinion on the WTC collapse. He once owned an NYC shirt with the Towers on the front. IMHO, he is grounds for revoking Minnesoooooootahhs statehood.

Anybody who knows anything about demolition on that large a scale knows it wasn’t possible without blatantly obvious prep work on a massive scale.

So massive it would have been impossible not to have seen the explosives, cutting back on support beams and structures, wiring, etcetera.

People going to work in the morning would have tripped over all of it.
