Former Governor Jesse Ventura Says WTC Collapse a Controlled Demolition

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.

Send treats to the troops...
Great because you did it!
I suggest Jesse get treatment from the damage of steroids during his wrestling career and also get a back issues of Popular mechanics.
God. We’ve become a nation of loony toones. It is like everyone who has a chance at a microphone is living in the 5th dimension.
It’s So Good to be an Idiot....
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.
Someone needs to ask Obama and Hillary if they agree with Willie and Jesse
We should rename him from Jesse “The Body” Ventura, to Jesse “the Fruitcake” Ventura
Another prime example of a former elected moron. DC is full of them.
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 ..
One too many chairs broken over his head.
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!
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).
Help me out here. What are the “pancakes” you are talking about?
Yep, you got it.
The snow falls up Charlie Brown.
I suggest he should have stayed in the ring and avoided politics altogether. The man is obviously damaged.
And his take on all the other terror attacks in the last 40 years or so?
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.
Pro wrestling is staged??!!!
You just ruined Monday night RAW for our home!
I know that I should feel bad that dementia has claimed another victim, but this stuff is just too funny!
Why hould we be surprised? The guy’s a rassler.
The Moonbats are at it again. He should stick to wrestling.
Sorry, Minnesota, I don’t mean to unsult you, but it seems that you elect so many nuts- and now Al Franken.
You deserve better representation.
What party was he a member of?
I’d like him to define what speed of gravity is in the first place.
9.8 (32') meters per second squared. A body will fall 1138' from a dead stop after 10 seconds.
Especially since it is actually an acceleration (I believe 32ft/sec/sec???)
“We should rename him from Jesse The Body Ventura, to Jesse the Fruitcake Ventura”
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.
Jess proves once again why a certain radio talk show host used to refer to him as Jesse “The Mind (Is A Terrible Thing To Waste)” Ventura.
Yep thats what I remember...but then again I ain’t no wrestler/former governor. :)
Is that jessie Ventura? Oh my God!!! and I am supposed to take the man seriously?
He should try reading Debunking the 911 Myth by the boys and girls of popular mechanics.
James, “I was a Navy Seal”, Janos ping.
Just plain nuts.
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.
What a kook.
