Safe Mode: On
Ventura’s 9/11 Questions Break Through Mainstream Media Dam

Wednesday, April 9, 2008 Jesse ‘The Mind’ Defends Questions About Towers’ Telling Collapse on Hannity & Colmes and National Talk Radio Programs: "How can two planes bring down three buildings?"

Former Governor Jesse Ventura broke through enemy lines yesterday, exposing major inconsistencies with the official 9/11 story and holding his own against some of mainstream media’s most disingenuous hosts, including Fox News’ Sean Hannity and Opie & Anthony from XM Satellite radio.

Ventura’s notoriety as a fiercely independent upstart may have kept Hannity, for one, from playing his usual dirty tricks.

As former Governor, Ventura may be the highest level official in the United States to take 9/11 truth questions seriously, yet his enduring popularity and success as a celebrity, wrestler, Hollywood star, Navy SEAL and even Harvard professor make him more difficult to diffuse and ignore than celebrities who have previously come forward or Congressmen who have flirted with raising questions.

The Associated Press ran a story last week about Ventura’s 9/11 comments following an appearance on the Alex Jones Show that has now exploded into a frenzy of coverage as he makes the rounds to promote his book Don’t Start the Revolution Without Me, a title that may prove to be more than just rhetoric.

On Hannity & Colmes, Ventura touts his knowledge of (mere elementary) physics and his experience with explosives in the Navy Seals– if only to establish that the questions about the collapses of the Twin Towers and Building 7 are entirely credible and indeed deserve an explanation– rather than the usual ridicule.

Indeed, it may have been the first episode of Hannity & Colmes– or any Fox News program, for that matter– where 9/11 truth is treated with dignity and respect. Perhaps with Ventura in-studio towering over him, Hannity realized that his own persona was nothing more than playing a tough guy on TV.

You can see in the transcript how ‘The Body’ crippled the weak defenses of his challenger:

HANNITY: The one thing that I read in the book that I totally found– just alien to me is this idea that you believe in 9/11 conspiracies.

VENTURA: "Well, let me tell it to you this way: Why is it that when you ask any question about 9/11, you’re immediately attacked?"

HANNITY: "I’m not attacking you"

VENTURA: "You’re not. I’m speaking in general. I’m not saying you guys. But I’ve watched– people get attacked, people have their credibility attacked. My problem is, I look at it, and I go: how can two planes knock down three buildings?"

HANNITY: Pretty easy. It’s 757s– 747s.

VENTURA: But there were three buildings that went down.

HANNITY: There was a lot of fire and there was a lot of damage–

VENTURA: Well, first of all, jet fuel blew up at the start. Jet fuel is four-fifths– and I don’t want to stay on this, I’d rather talk other things– but jet fuel is four-fifths kerosene. It doesn’t burn hot. So, using the analogy that it could melt the metal, then propane burns hotter. So if you turn on your camp stove for three hours, shouldn’t it melt the grates? But it doesn’t, does it?– it doesn’t.

Hannity, unsure where to gouge at Ventura’s credibility, drew upon the perceived vulnerabilities of previous celebrities instead: "He’s going Rosie O’Donnell here– that’s Rosie O’Donnell."

Colmes’ brief attempt to trap Ventura into placing the blame on specific government officials resulted in an defiant explanation that the governor simply doesn’t know, but seeks to answer:

"I can’t place blame, but I have a hard time accepting the fact that never before in history has a steel structure fallen to the ground at the rate of gravity (and the core beams, how did they go down?)…I’m simply questioning that it doesn’t add up to me."

Ventura covered similar ground with Opie, Anthony and Jim, who have little to argue about, yet talk over the governor and try to confuse the issue.

Listen to parts 1-3 here

"I just have questions," Ventura blurted over their chatter amidst a detailed discussion about the many inconsistencies of the government’s official story with the truth, the laws of physics and etc.

Ventura brought up molten steel at the bottom of the wreckage and other relevant issues while the hosts tried to explain away the situation with vague descriptions of wreckage and debris.

The governor critiqued one host when he tried to argue that fires in the basement were spread from the top floors through the elevator shaft. “The only one problem was– the elevator shafts were sealed. They always are,” Ventura corrected.

When the host theorized that burning plane parts had been the source, Ventura chastised, “You’re getting like Hollywood– you never run out of bullets.” He pointed out that, in reality, most of the fuel burned in the initial explosion, diminishing its ability to bring down the skyscrapers.

Ventura also argued that the fact that NORAD failures and other intelligence breaches did not result in the firings of ‘inept’ officials because firings would lead to unwanted investigations.

By the end, he resigned in silence– pushing his mike away, according to Opie & Anthony– unable to reach his hosts who were ready to explain away the ‘ineptitude’ and ‘futility’ of the government’s details and yet incapable of facing the big lie staring them in the face.

Reports have also come in of Jesse Ventura stumping for 9/11 truth on a number of other combative radio shows, including Bo and Jim of KZPS in Dallas.

Richard Greene of Air America– a station that normally won’t touch 9/11 truth issues– played extended clips of Jesse Ventura’s comments from the Alex Jones Show.

May many more reports pour in…

    The 9/11 commision report doesn't mention the 47 center columns, and doesn't have any reason for WT7...
    I saw the NIST webpage for WT7 and that was a joke as the investigation was a year after the collapse and they pulled the investigating team off the case.. and I have not listened to the NORAD tapes... the 911 coms report was a total joke... did you think it was good????????????
