Jesse Ventura's 9/11 theory: Dick Cheney "allowed it to happen to further their agenda"

Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura was a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" this evening, and gave his theory on what happened on 9/11. "I believe Dick Cheney knew it," said Ventura. "It's not rational" countered Piers Morgan.

"They allowed it to happen to further their agenda in the Middle East," said Ventura – Piers described the theory as "madness."

    Piers, Jeese Ventura is correct about Obama, groomed for 30 years by trilateral commision, family members involved in CIA. It's easily found all there on google! Trilateral Commmision founded in early 70's lookup the extraordinary members ship of over 350 world leaders in government, business and wealth. Organizations mission to keep world from turmoil.

        your a lost cause... do you believe anything you read?? when you go to school and are taught by a teacher, what makes you confident that you are being taught the right thing? If there is a history of the same things being taught and passed down, why don't you feel compelled to challenge what your being told?? I bet your one of those people that when you watch the news and they say that you have to run out and get a new shot of some kind to prevent sickness and your first in line... Jokebook!!

        While it is true that there is false information on the Internet, it is generally easy to identify. Instead of questioning the authenticity of information found by using Google, you only need to look at the information to see that it is authentic. You will find that Obama does in fact have ties to the Trilateral Commission. This was exposed by Project Censored, an evidence-based media watchdog organization. Usually you only have to look at the source, for example, is it from some unknown guy in his basement, spouting off on Facebook, or is it from a published author, respected journalist, or otherwise authoritative source. Such reliable sources will cite references to support their positions. Another way to fact check is to ask the experts, such as the more than 1400 credential-checked architects and engineers who say that the official story of 911 is fiction, and are calling for a real investigation of how the towers fell. Your notion that "Engineer & scientists have debunked this" is incorrect. The official investigation that should have looked for explosives (by law), did not do so. And NIST lead engineer John Gross refused to acknowledge that there was molten metal at ground zero, denied that there was anyone claiming to have seen molten metal, and refused to receive the information that there was molten metal, despite the fact that firefighters are on the record describing it as running like lava or molten metal in a foundry. This video footage is easy to find on Youtube. You can actually see the firefighters speaking those words.

      first of all who is the idiot that thought it was a good idea to hire a jerk who is not even qualified to judge a talent contest(seeing he has none) to be a news person? 2nd his illogic and refusal to accept ventura's FACTS of years of study and his attempts to put words in venturas mouth may go well in england, but some sisse calling a REAL man's man a coward was going way too far. has piers morgan EVER in his entire live done ANYTHING brave to earn the right to judge anybodies bravery? his lack of integrity should be sent over to fox news where it belongs! GET RID OF PIERS MORGAN, NOBODY cares WHAT HE SAYS OR THINKS AND THIS INTERVIEW PROVES IT!!!!!

        I agree with you 100%. My satellite company dropped the CNN feed right when Piers said, "Let's talk about 9-11." I know from this site that Jesse directly said that Dick Cheney was responsible for 9-11. Is that why DirectTv pulled the plug tonight? It's still not receiving the signal, fifteen minutes later.

        Hello I agree COMPLETELY....Piers showed his true color tonite in the interview with Jessie. A person picked to judge a "talent" contest, and he is so ill informed says it all. BUT wait when he interviewed "THE DON" Trump....he did not disagree with him....maybe because he had his nose so far up his ___. Piers is part of the problem in the media world. He's not going to say anything to risk his reporter position with CNN. SOOOO sad. YEA PIERS....you are fired!!! I was so upset with you and CNN,I took the time to send you this email from SE Asia. GOOOOO JESSIE you right on!

        Piers said, "Don't BE a coward" to get him to put his money with his mouth is, Piers DID NOT SAY, YOU "ARE" A COWARD! That is name-calling and there is a big difference. Get it right people, it's an interviewers job to get someone with so many conspiracy theories to support his beliefs of which Jesse "Ace Ventura" could not by contradicting himself every 2 minutes while he rocked back and forth in his chair. He should also learn which country first went into Libya before he shoots his mouth off so he doesn't lose credibility claiming to have researched things before he wrote this book. Before you say anything, watch the interview again and count the number of inconsistent statements Jesse makes. Hope he doesn't take the stand at his trial or they'll eat him alive in his cross-examination. Stick to one story buddy.

      Piers is obnoxious and a poor interviewer as well. He is disrespectful and flippant, and Larry King was successful because he was not. An interviewer is supposed to get his guest to talk more, but that doesn't happen when guests are treated in an arrogant, bulling manner. Incidentally, that is just how Piers acted on American Idol. No wonder Piers show is failing. I watched the show twice, and I won't bother again. Even the most inane series would be better than this!

        Ventura said pools of molten metal at ground level were proof of demolition explosives. Incorrect:
        Oxidation of iron by air is not the only EXOTHERMIC reaction of iron (= structural steel which is about 98 % Fe, 1 % Mn, 0.2 % C, 0.2 % Si.....). There is at least one additional reaction of iron with the capability of keeping the rubble pile hot and cooking!

        The reaction between IRON AND STEAM is also very EXOTHERMIC and fast at temperatures above 400 deg C. This reaction produces Fe3O4 AND HYDROGEN. It is the classic example of a REVERSIBLE REACTION studied in Chemistry labs at high school. But believe it or not, back at the turn of the century, the reaction of iron and steam was used as an industrial process for the manufacture of hydrogen.

      It's a pity Piers Morgan is so closed minded about the interview with Jesse Ventura. Ventura speaks the truth, and Morgan is paid big bucks to mock the absurdity of Ventura's claims. As far as I am concerned, with evidences which Morgan refuses to check it out himself personally ... because he doesn't want to lose his big bucks and will keep his mouth shut. I've lost respect for Morgan entirely, and will never watch his show again. He'd rather look the other way than listen to all those people who've been through the tragedies themselves. Take a hike Morgan, you'd rather dream on than look at reality!

      II TEND TO AGREE WITH A LOT OF WHAT JESSES SAID. I'M PRIOR U.S. AIR FORCE (12 YRS) AND PEOPLE OFTEN ASK ME WHY DIDN'T STAY 8 MORE YEARS AND RETIRE. MY LAST DUTY ASSIGNMENT WAS IN D.C. IN AN AGENCY CALLED D.I.A. (DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE AGENCY) WHICH IS THE MILITARY VERSION OF C.I.A. AFTER 7 YEARS OF "KEEPING SECRETS" I HAD TO GET OUTTA THERE. TODAY, I DON'T WANNA EVEN KNOW YOUR SECRET RECIPE FOR FRIED CHICKEN!

      OUR GOVERNMENT OFTEN EMPLOY MILITARY STRATEGY TO "GET WHAT IT WANTS" AROUND THE GLOBE. JESSE WAS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT TO SAY THAT WE AS TAXPAYERS SHOULD KNOW "ALL" THAT OUR GOVERNMENT IS INVOLVED IN AND WHAT THE REAL OBJECTIVE OF INVOLVEMENT IS (?). AS AN EXAMPLE, HOW IS IT THAT WE HAVE TECHNOLOGY ENOUGH TO READ A CAR'S LICENSE PLATE FROM SPACE, LISTEN TO ALL THE WORLD'S PHONE CALLS, BUT WE CAN'T FIND OSAMA BIN LADEN??? (OR DOES HE REALLY EXIST?) BUT JESSE JUST TOLD AMERICANS ABOUT THE RARE NATURAL RESOURCES THAT DO EXIST IN AFGHANISTAN.

      THERE ARE A LOT OF DICTATORS AROUND THE WORLD IN COUNTRIES WHERE HUMAN RIGHTS ARE VIOLATED DAILY. FOR US TO SEEMINGLY ONLY BE CONCERNED ABOUT OIL RICH, OR SOME OTHER RICH RESOURCE BEARING NATION, IS JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT MAKE ME GO "HMMMMM!"

      LASTLY, THE ANSWER TO WHAT MADE ME, AFTER 12 YEARS IN THE WORLD'S MOST ELITE AIR FORCE, DECIDE TO QUIT IS, I GOT REALLY TIRED OF HEARING STUFF ON THE NEWS THAT I KNEW "DIDN'T HAPPEN LIKE THAT!" (THE MEDIA IS ALSO A HUGE PART OF MILITARY PROPAGANDA CAMPAIGNS} SORRY PIERS...YOU'RE REPORTING ONLY WHAT YOU'VE BEEN TOLD TO TELL!!!!

        Totally agree. Osama Bin Laden in much more useful to us at-large than captured; if, as you say, he even exists. Militarism is our biggest export industry and has been for a long while. Read Major General Smedley D. Butler's book "War Is A Racket." The 25 million bounty on OBL's head will never be paid until he's lost his usefulness because it is only peanuts compared to the money being made by American interests opposing him.

        DJ is absolutely right about Piers. He's obviously a puppet with a closed mind and should be on FOX news. Jesse may go over the top in some cases but it's well known that the CIA uncovered an Islamist plot to fly airplanes into US buildings and the Bush administration put a lid on it and cut funding for anti-terrorist intelligence operations. Bush could never have been re-elected without 9-11 and it was the answer to the neocons' dreams. And our reaction to it–the senseless invasion of Iraq–was the answer to Osama's dreams. It's almost as if Cheney and Osama cooked the whole thing up between them. –But now I'm starting to sound like Jesse.

        DJ, you just struck a chord that has been ringing in my ear non stop since about 15 minutes after the first plane hit the WTC on Sept 11, 2001. Before the second tower had fallen, all of the credit for the 'attacks' had been given to a goat herder from...you choose...Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Afghanistan or Pakistan. Supposedly this guy masterminded a plot involving 19 or so fanatical Islamic radicals (some of whom have been proven to still be alive, btw) beyond a shadow of a doubt. Now, I ask you: How is it that literally millions of people, since November 22, 1963, have poured the hearts, souls, and indeed personal fortunes into the investigation of the assassination of JFK...and to this day we STILL do not know who shot our President? Yet within a very short period of time it is said without hesitation that Osama bin Laden perpetrated these 'attacks'? Really?
        I'm sorry...I aint buyin it. And to your point, I have seen, as you no doubt have as well, numerous pictures of "bin Laden" that don't look anything alike! It seemed for a while there were as many as a half a dozen of em runnin around the Middle East.
        That leads to the final point here: If any part of the government's story of 9/11 is found to be a lie, then it is all a lie.

      Jesse may not fully understand the whys and wherefores of 9/11 but at least he's using his noggin to think about things and rationalize how some of the unexplained aspects of that event could have happened. Piers, on the other hand, displays an almost irrational fear of accepting anything other than the standard model fed to us by the media and government. Not very courageous thinking on your part Piers.

    I was deeply distressed by the opinions expressed by Mr. Ventura.He appears to be a bully who is also obnoxious and arrogant. I feel he needs to have an audience, loves playing games and feels he is an academic – which he is not. Mr. Morgan showed restraint and courtesy as well as a longing for the hour to pass quickly. The guest was rude, senseless, visceral and loud! Why would any sane person spend money on a book of insane theories. It appears to be a thoroughly irrelevant book from a similar man. His idealistic values and moronic delivery do not translate into a fact driven, reflective, unbiased read. Perhaps, being Canadian, I fear such ignorant people. Thanks.

        911 buildings collapesed like a perfect building demolation. I know a lot of structural engineers, experts, who said it was a controlled demolation.

        The last building was not even hit by an airplane and collapsed perfectly.

        This was not some lucky bedoiuns who did this. You would have to be an idoit to believe they accomplished 3 buildings imploding perfectly by hitting 2 with airplanes.

        And your source of information is...? Engineer & scientists have debunked this "Truther" BS years ago. I am certainly no government supporter but you can't pick & choose facts based on what you'd prefer to believe. Mr. Ventura did bring up good points: metal melts @ 1000 degrees, the building would be in large chunks; however, they've already been responded to with facts (due to the airplane fuel the fire @ impact were burning hotter @ 1000 degrees & it was so hellaciosu that 911 operators recount people stating their shoes were melting to the floor & so took their shoes off, then the skin on their feet began melting to the floor so they had to stand on desks & that didn't help much; there were plenty of large chunks of building, hence the cranes, diggers & other equipment used for months & months in the clean-up). Time would be better spent figuring out our enemies' next moves than selecting partial truths that back a fiction better discussed in a creative writing class.

HARP exists here and is no joke. Have you done any research or do you just sit and listen to your government and believe it as gospel? Until you can take everything this man has researched and say he's wrong, then you can call him ignorant. A lot he said on Piers Morgan the public needs to be aware of and stand up and look into. I am disappointed in Piers and how he handled this interview. I take my hat off to Jesse for trying to make the public aware and look instead of stick their head in the sand. I whole heartedly agree with his comment that the government should shut a lot of the bases down overseas that we have no business being there. Everywhere we go, we leave a piece of ourselves whether they need us or not. Wake up Katy and pay attention to what he's saying. Piers couldn't handle it because it's the ugly truth and couldn't keep up with it.

HARP in Alaska is very real. I live here. No I never supported Palin, what an embarrassment. Yes we should close quite a few bases outside of this country. He is absolutely correct. We seem to leave a bit of ourselves everywhere we set foot.

      Well Katy no one in America will make you purchase Jesse's book. And of course you can turn the TV machine off anytime you want to. I'm an American who lives in Point Roberts, WA which is located inside British Columbia, Canada and many of my Canadian neighbors believe many of the issues Jesse talked about. Jesse was a navy seal, a professional wrestler, an expert marksman, a demolition expert (part of this navy seal training) and the Governor of Minnesota and the host of the extremely popular TV show Conspiracy Theory. Just because you don't believe Jesse's theories doesn't make them untrue it just shows that you don't know anything about them. The truth is often stranger than fiction.

      So you are not fond of Jesse...that is OK but why don't you use him as a stepping stone to do your own research. I guarantee if you do, you will come out on the other side of the "truth". There was a time when I was asleep and it took one remark from someone like Jesse that has me wanting to discredit them. Much to my surprise and severa books later, I dont "think"...I "know" the truth.

      Katy, I had to wonder just what was taking place on the show last evening. Was it an interview or a debate? Mr. Morgan later clarified during the discussion of Wikileaks..."I started this debate by....", so it was a debate. Poor Mr. Ventura. I bet he came on thinking it was going to be an interview.

      And as a participant in this debate...Mr. Morgan reasons his own theories/opinions.... by a feeling in his gut. I've used that type of reasoning when I pick a slot machine at a casino.

        This is bull! An interview is where one is asked questions, in which the interviewer is somewhat non baised. A debate is where both parties are asked questions and BOTH answer. Morgan, if you are truly interviewing someone you shouldn't pick and choose which questions to awnser! This was clearly a debate, Ventura vs cnn's puppet, Morgan, who was failing as and interviewer. Morgan tried repeatedly to coax Venture into irrevelant and weak side arguments that made him look even more uneducated and pupeterish.

      Hear, hear! Well said, frank. I'm watching the replay right now and Piers has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt what a dimbulb her really is. He should have stayed away from arguing with Jesse, unless he was playing such a subtle game that it was the only way he would be allowed to let Jesse say what he wanted to say. Obviously he couldn't be seen as agreeing with Jesse, but the sincerity of his illiteracy on the most important subjects of all was too telling. The man has less than half the heft of Larry King in this arena. At least Larry would've had the 'Bill Maher-lite' touch if he were doing this interview.

        Or not. And those of you that believe this BS are idiots who would rather believe that our government did it-whether "it" is UFO's, bombs, jumpers-as-dummies, planes as optical illusions-that look at facts and admit you're wrong. Give it up. Your not going after truth, you're trying to hold on to something that's long ago been proved wrong. Why would you want to keep a falsehood alive? It's like arguing that the sky isn't blue, that it's orange-the facts are there, everything points in other directions, but you select enough parts of things to try and keep it going and have enough others agree that you feel justified to keep the lie going. If you don't know the "truth" it's only because you either haven't done enough research into independent facts-not just the ones on conspiracy and truther sites-or because you choose to ignore them. You're not enlightened, you're just a sheep, the same way that people in Jonestown & followers of Charles Manson were sheep. That is, as long as those people existed...maybe Jonestown was a staged media event in order to try and keep Americans away from religion so that we can be overthrown by England and be forced to observe and express religious values in the way they've been plotting! And maybe Charles Manson was a stooge to out the Beach Boys as satanists and the song "California Girls" as an homage to the Illuminati!

        @ Asha: Actually Jonestown was an odd thing. Listen to Jones Kool-Aide tape and you can hear him yelling "Get Dwyer out of here" Yep, demanding a person leave as he asked others to die. His followers had just killed Congressman Leo Ryan. The report of the mass suicide came from the only nearby radio, held by CIA man Dick Dwyer. (Other reports put Dwyer at the site of Ryans death, recently shot in the buttocks., heh, cold be Jones was mistaken, but Dwyer had helped arrange Ryan's visit). Now why was Dwyer involved? Anyone's guess.

        Also look up Bush Sr's well known association with the CIA and his company's role in the Bay of Pigs invasion, or his memo sent from phone, saying he was on his way to Dallas, and that JFK would have an assassination attempt. Another FBI memo to George Bush on the 'anti-Cuban reaction' to the JFK assassination. What, did you think Ford (of the Warren Commission) made him head of the CIA with no previous experience?

        Oh yeah, and Hinkley, who shot Reagan, was a family friend of the Bushes. If he'd have succeeded, guess who would be the most powerful man in the world. Jeb even had to cancel a dinner with Hinkley's brother a day later.

        The point is, these things are real, and you rarely hear about them. And I'm quite certain you DO approve of the 1000's of other conspiracies (people making plans together, like in the Pentagon every day) that help keep America #1 in the world. Plans that secure foreign business opportunities, our national security and natural resource interests throughout the world. But you rarely think 'what about those few plans that go a tad wrong." World dominance doesn't happen by handing out hugs.

      If you believe that middle eastern men hijacked 4 planes on 9/11/2001 and flew them into the twin towers and the pentagon and crashed one, then you are a conspiracy theorist, because that is, by definition, a conspiracy theory.

      If they conspired together to do it, then it's a conspiracy. Exactly what happened has never been proven so it's a theory.

      Bob, I learned this in the 7th grade. Yes, we funded the Afghans in their rebellion against the Soviet supported puppet state. We did so because of our belief in the Truman doctrine, the idea that we must contain communism. While I DONT support such an idea ( it is not our business to be thrusting our ideals on others), we did not fund the Taliban or other rebels because of anything else than our fear of communism.

    Jesse Ventura asks why there is molten metal underneath the world trade center. Im only in High School, but I still realize there are other possible reasons for this. For example, extremely high pressures (from the collapse of the towers) can cause phase change, any high school chemistry class will teach this. Has he looked into this possibility? His Lithium vein theory is interesting, but basing conspiracy theories on small scraps such as this one is questionable.

      Without commenting on whether 911 is an inside job or not, the pressure you speak of to cause a phase change to steel is insanely high. This amount of intense pressure only occurs miles under the earth's crust which towers comparison to the amount of pressure that would of been cause by these falling buildings. Again, not saying that the molten metal doesn't have an rational non conspirist explanation, but it definitely was not caused by the pressure of the falling towers.

Never have I been so embarrassed for a person as I was watching you tonight. For a grown man you acted like a child, it was humiliating.

    You are usually a stimulating host, but tonite you showed that you actually have a very closed minded, aggressive nature to hold fast to the simplest, safest conclusions possible, regarding any of the content you grilled Ventura on...
    Ventura may not have every fact 100% spot on, but I'd support that his facts are 80% more spot on, than yours and the narrow minded truths of you and the naysayers of Ventura...
    I'm disappointed in you. This could have been a very interesting show- you missed a great opportunity.

Mr Morgan is disrespectful because not only he dares to insult the guest, but constantly interrupts him and so, we end up hearing more about the not very likeable Morgan, when in truth most of us tunned in to hear the guest, not Morgan..

    I normally dont watch this show, but tuned in to see what Jesse had to say. I have to tell you I will never watch this show again. I was sickend by the way piers acted as if he was giving an interview and not trying to debunk Jesse. He has a very long way to go before he is barbra walters little finger. Its so sad that CNN has stooped this low.

    The OK City bombers weren't waterboarded because they were American citizens and protected under the 8th amendment. The terrorists at Gitmo are not US citizens and, I believe, are considered "illegal combatants" under the Geneva Convention.

    I like Piers and Jesse. This was a good interview, but you have to understand Piers works for one of 6 owners that own the media. He has to stick to the official govt line. I liked that, he agreed that torture is bad. A lot of people just want to live their lives out, get a check, and therefore want to bury their head in the sand, and not question what happened. Mostly main stream media guys are 911 denighers. However, I am glad Piers put Jesse on. I am thankfull for that.

    I am seriously thinking of boycotting the Piers Morgan show after tonight. Glad to see the marjority of comments seem to voice the same opinon. The comment earlier regarding Piers belonging on Fox News is right on the money.

    Piers totally fawned over the biggest loser, Charlie Sheen in an earlier interview but totally disrespected Jesse who is bringing up a lot of valid points regarding what's happening today in our country. Jesse could have pulled a "Meatloaf" and exploded on him for the way he was treated but he handled the interview with great composure.

    Basically what Piers was saying when he was defending our reasons for declaring and staying in our war(s) was that we should buy everything we are told from our government, line and sinker and just be a bunch of sheep. Piers certainly has no backbone. CNN, please replace this other loser! Couldn't you possibly find a more suitable replacement to such a class act, Larry King??? He was much more impartial.

    LIAR – BRIBER – PHONY NAVY SEAL

    Starring America’s biggest liar and conspirator
    Jesse “James Janos” Ventura
    (even his name is fake)
    ”Always Cheat – The Philosophy of Jesse Ventura”
    by Leslie Davis, Author and Activist
    Call or write for a complimentary book – 612/529-5253

    Most of the truTV conspiracy information is nothing new.
    We reported the World Trade Center Building 7 demolition
    for the insurance money on our TV show more than a year ago.

    Ventura intros his truTV show by lying about being a Navy SEAL.
    He wasn’t a SEAL and the photo of him on truTV is from the movie Predator.

    Facts you should know about Jesse Ventura

    – Ventura lied about being a Navy SEAL on active duty. He joined the SEAL Reserves after active duty. (Page 102).
    – He lied about being in Vietnam. He told Dennis Anderson of the Minneapolis Star Tribune that “you haven’t hunted until you’ve hunted man”. Ventura was never in combat and he never hunted man.
    – Bribed a candidate on July 17, 1998 so he could run unopposed in the Reform Party and keep his radio show. Call for free video of the actual bribe.
    – Bribed Ramsey County Attorney Susan Gaertner to fix the 1998 bribe by giving a job to her boyfriend, John Wodele, as his Communications Director.
    – Told single moms that they were on their own if they tried to get help.
    – Told University of Minnesota students to “win if you can, lose if you must, but Always Cheat”.
    – Insulted people who were religious or mentally ill.
    – Killed caged birds at a game farm with Maria Shriver and Charlie Weaver.
    – Endorsed “torture” of people at Highway 55 when 600-law enforcement (the largest police action in Minnesota history) arrested peaceful protesters trying to prevent demolition of homes for a road. Many protesters were handcuffed behind their backs and pepper sprayed in their eyes. (Page 4).
    – Ventura took government money to go to school in Hennepin County and later told students that if they were smart enough to go to college they should be able to figure out how to pay for it.

      Just FYI, Mr. Janos held office in the state of Minnesota. Minnesota law provides that a candidate may run for office using the name they are commonly known by, whether it is their legal name or not. There is nothing deceitful about using the moniker Jesse Ventura, it is merely a matter of personal preference – and a perfectly legal one at that.

    Piers has to go!! I've really tried to watch him and he's had SOME semi-good interviews, but this was it for us (a Brit-America married couple). He was completely Inappropriate with our very Brave Patriot, Jesse. Jesse is probably at risk all the time with his Truth Telling life. And we would vote for him, but he is probably right – the Corporations and Banks (don't forget the 3rd ruling class) who own the Politicians and all 3 Governing bodies – would Never allow him to make it to the Presidency. But Piers with his constant chop/change/bait & switch tactics was out of line and made it all about him and it was obvious his plan was to ridicule Jesse. The wonderful aspect of this was how GRACIOUS and educational Jesse was – and IS – to all the ignorant low intellectually challenged sheep who think they're so smart, of which Piers must be near the top. CNN needs to get someone who understands how to conduct a Decent and Kind interview (I mean Larry was this way with the middle eastern dictators). It's not that he's a Brit (remember I am married to one for 30 years now) -he's just RUDE AND A TERRIBLE host!! I think we must boycott after this!! Hope most agree and then they'll be forced to let him go.

    I agree with Jesse Ventura. It appears Pier Morgan does not want to hear his guest. He was interviewing Jesse and should have respected his opinion instead he was arguing everything Jesse said.

    Re Cheney Knew About it

    Noman Mineta, acting Secretary of Transportation on 09/11/2001 eyewitness testimony of conversation overheard between Vice President Dick Cheney and an aide:

    testimony admissible in a court of law:

    In his testimony, Mineta explained that “probably about five or six minutes” after he entered the
    PEOC, he observed a conversation between Dick Cheney and a young aide.

    “… during the time that the airplane coming into the Pentagon. There was
    a young man who had come in and said to the vice president, "The plane is
    50 miles out. The plane is 30 miles out." And when it got down to, "The
    plane is 10 miles out," the young man also said to the vice president, "Do
    the orders still stand?" And the vice president turned and whipped his neck
    around and said, "Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard
    anything to the contrary?"”

    Piers Morgan CAN'T be that naieve!!! Why was he goading Jesse Ventura? Ratings maybe?. Stirring the pot maybe? I don't know but he sure came off as totally out of the loop, rude, lacking in intelligence and silly. He critized Jesse who backed his opinions with years of study and did not give opinions about subjects he did not research, but Piers said he was basing his opinion on "just call it a gut feeling"! Such naievete is unsettling and speaks to Pier's lack of credibility as an interviewer. He went down several notches in my book. Keep speaking the truth, Jesse.

His rude, flippant interview style does not hold a candle to Larry King's introspective and restrained manner. He was insulting, and ultimately did nothing to expand the nature of the questions he posed to Jesse Ventura. In an ironic twist, he reprimands Jesse for giving a so-called "crackpot" airtime, yet when he interviewed Charlie Sheen, he purred demurely and allowed him to dig his own grave..all for the sake of "good" TV.

    Ok. I'm not one to comment, but I just had to on this one. I found Jesse to be a very hard interview for Piers. Jesse answered most of his questions with questions. I actually sympathize with Piers because I've had similar conversations with my father-in-law... Who is also a Vietnam vet. Jesse's points were great banter for bar room talk... But highly idealogically inconsistant and argumentive. I could feel Piers' frustration. The biting British sarcasim was halaraious and its the only thing that kept my interest:-)... Super funny "you sound like someone that used Lithium". I give much respect for people that serve but, honestly I think Jesse has some unresolved PTSD from his time in the military and hopefully he'll get the help he needs.

    TRUTH IS, JUST LIKE JESSE SAID, A LOT OF AMERICAN TAXPAYERS, WHO ACTUALLY PAY THE GOVERNMENT'S SALARY, DON'T KNOW A FRACTION OF THE INFORMATION THAT "WE" SHOULD. THAT FRACTION OF THE REAL GOVERNMENT'S SECRETS THAT ARE RELEASED ON THE NEWS IS WHAT "THEY" CHOSE TO RELEASE. (HOW BOUT THAT?)

      Jesse was right on. Go to each link I've posted above. They are eye openers if you want to watch the body language and listen to the credibility. Piers should have handled the interview differently. He actually acted like a typical citizen who cannot or will not that high places do very bad things. Piers did not do his homework ahead of the interview apparently and I thought was insulting to Jesse. I would have rather had Anderson Cooper do the interview in letting things be said ... but all Piers wanted to do is react in disbelief and argue. Thats my critique. Piers is a good movie star interviewer but not in serious wake up call societal issues. He needs to give Jesse another chance and definately do a bit more homework in checking things out. If I was Piers's boss...he would be chastised for abusing a credible whistle blower. This was botched.

    Well, along with some others I see here, and some that didn't bother to comment, I'm all done with CNN. After the insults promoted by Anderson Cooper and Sanjay Gupta on a physician without any decent research (are we too cheap?), and now the Piers Morgan insults to a guest and former state governor (Jesse Ventura), CNN can't be serious news, only pandering to what they guess is popular sentiment.

    If you had even the slightest interest in researching your stories and interviews, you would find that a majority of people think there was much more to 9/11 than being told by official sources. When you have a group of 1,450 architects and engineers along with thousands of other people signing up to be members of a group investigating EVIDENCE (not theories) in a scientific fashion, and coming to the conclusion that the WTC buildings came down by controlled demolition, then you have a serious gap between facts and the official story that it looks like CNN has signed up for. Were you even aware that there was a building 7 that came down later that day in the same controlled fashion? With no plane strike, and not by falling debris?

    If you have the nerve and strength of concern, go to http://www.ae911truth.org/ and learn facts instead of hearsay and theories.
    Either way, I'm done with CNN. My belief in the 'fair and balanced' reporting of CNN has been ruined. I might get better info from FOX News.

    Whether you believe Ventura or not, it is true that it is "an offense NOT to question government." I applaud Piers for having Ventura on the show, I think this was the best Piers Morgan Tonight to date. Americans should more often see both sides of the story and judge for themselves what is right. Also just saw Ventura on the CNN morning show promoting his book.

    As for the Christians who have vehemently refuted Ventura's claims, remember that your Bible also predicts a one-world dictatorship in the end times. If you believe that, then what Ventura said isnt far-fetched at all.

    Now of all people to replace Lary King... Piers Morgan? Good God.
    Never seen such an empty, clueless personality.

    Jesse Ventura dished out some straight facts. People like Piers Morgan never like the truth because it hurts like mad. But the truth is always there. It cannot be wished away.

      Piers, I haven't seen you much but for this interview you deserved 5 stars. I wish you have brought up Israel in your interview with Ventura because we would have heard another conspiracy theory about Jews and Zionists running the world.

    I had high expectations of Piers Morgan, but last night with Jesse Ventura – I'm rather disappointed. Rather than playing a devil's advocate and bombarding Jesse with an artillery of skepticism, which in all likelihood was coached by the show's director, Piers should have been receptive and done his homework regarding the insurmountable clues linked to the conspiracies throughout the world. If this is any indication of how the producers perceive Piers to be portrayed – how stupid and naive do you think the viewers are? An insipid impression to say the least. Perhaps Piers should be sipping wine and interviewing Lady Gaga in a hot tub.

    My fellow citizens of the world, we live in the matrix. A world that is being controlled by a certain class of people, where the citizens are made to think in a certain way while the true rulers push forward their agenda. It may be very hard to believe all that Jesse Ventura came out with on the show, but a good part of it is true. Piers is only trying to protect his job because the guys he works for – CNN – are part of that class of people who run the world. They run the media, they run the banks...yes they own the Federal Reserve (The Feds is not owned by the US) and whoever controls the supply of money in any economy runs that economy. So I say to you, in all that you hear and read, keep an open mind and try to make sense of every event that happens. Question every event that happens on this earth and try not to be controlled or manipulated by your own emotions – alexreid.forthetruth@gmail.com

    I watched as much of the interview of Jesse Ventura by Piers Morgan as I could stand. Mr. Morgan was rude, conniving, and needlessly argumentative. He would attempt to put words in the mouth of Mr. Ventura and then deny it. He would not listen to the responses of his guest – concentrating on trying to prove his preformed opinions.

    Truly has to be the most obnoxious interviewer I've ever seen. Larry King was remarkably better as an interviewer. He did not come across to me as a conceited pseudo-intellectual as Mr. Morgan did. I feel Mr. Morgan owes Mr. Ventura and the country an apology for his rude antics.

      Yeah Rich it sounds pretty appauling...but obviously you have not done any extensive research. There are witnesses that have been uncovered and who are credible when you watch the video. It's not hype...it's real stuff. I've spent a lot of time on this and am part of the military game and tied to law enforcement. Your claim here is of ignorance only because you haven't done your homework. Jesse was rocking because he's got crosshairs on him. He has to be careful or he will be killed. And it wouldn't surprise me that this could happen based on the inside job of the kennedy assasinations, Viet Nam, Watergate, Nixon, both Bushs, 911, and Bin Laden just to name a few. You'd better look deeper or YOU ARE THE WINGNUT. Just run the videos on some sites that are not manipulated mainstream stations. Actual witnesses along with deathbed confession is credible.

There are plenty that are piecing this together even to the threats from FBI. CIA in combo has done some very dirty work. The only one incident I'm still a bit unclear on is the King assasination .... but apparently Hoover was definately after him. Anyway....thank you for your loyal service. All of this is quite sad. Not HYPE. I have 4 of my 5 sons in service. 5 tours and counting between two of them. I lost a first cousin in 07 in Afghan. "Matthew Ferrara". Ambushed leading his patrol out near the Pakistan border at Aranus. Nephew to NZ's former defence minister Phil Goff. We haven't learned anything since Viet Nam...and in most of the gulf conflicts...it's been in our national security interest of OIL lobbyists bribing our politicians some of whom are dirty and deserve to be in prison if not on death row.

    Piers Morgan tells JV that HE is doing the interviewing and that Jesse is to answer the questions and not ask any, and then 30 seconds later Piers is talking about "my point of view". So Piers can ask questions and give his own point of view, but the guest is only to answer questions even though the host is arguing his own point of view at the same time. Unfair.

    And to call Jesse Ventura a coward and to tell him he needs to be on lithium is rude and low class.

    And really, how is it that Piers's brother serving in Afghanistan confers total knowledge of the truth upon Piers Morgan? That's not even rational.

    And to repeatedly tell Ventura how riled up he's getting when Morgan himself seems to be hysterical is ridiculous as well.

    I am a retired Navy Deep Sea Diver – spent over 10 of my 20 years in special forces, qualified and supervised closed circuit spec op dives, qualified SSN Spec Op Diving Supervisor, qualified expert rifle and pistol, qualified Combat Swimmer, qualified and trained in the use of most conventional explosives in and out of the water (and don't consider myself and expert by any stretch of the imagination). I was also stationed at Naval Special Warfare Unit One (same place as Jessie) during two deployments and was living there when Marcos got ousted during the Philippines "People Power" uprising. What does that have to do with Piers interview with Jessie Ventura's? Absolutely Nothing! But would these qualifications lend credence to my ability to make other people believe I know what I was talking about? Especially when it comes to how the twin towers came falling down on 9/11...Oh, and I was there a few of days after 9/11 and witnessed plenty of large pieces of twisted metal including one in the shape of a cross. Personally, I don't believe any of the training and experiences I've had in the Navy would qualify me to conclude that somehow the Twin Towers where all wired up to explode in conjunction with jets crashing into them...could anyone believe this Bull? There has been a lot of expert study about how the heat generated from the excess fuel (the planes where fuel loaded to fly a transcontinental fight and had a lot of fuel on board and the terrorists new it) on the planes weakened the structural steel to the point where it could no longer bear the weight of the structure. I've been an Airline Pilot for the last 11 years of my life and live and fly in the middle east. I watched Piers interview tonight with Jessie from my TV in Saudi Arabia and could not believe that such a patriot could actually believe such total and complete nonsense, and the mere idea that somehow the vice president of the United States somehow new about the 9/11 plot to bring down the towers is treasonous. Jessie, if anyone but you where on the stage tonight I would have just called the person a "Whack Job" and forgotten all about it. Instead I'm awake at 0200, having flown all day, wondering how someone with such similar history could have developed such bazaar views about the would in general. Well, it wasn't until you declared yourself an atheist that my understanding about your worldview became abundantly clear. Your suffering from an overinflated ego coupled with an extreme sense of inferiority. I understand these symptoms can only be cured by a huge helping of "Humble Pie". It's to bad you didn't stay in the Navy long enough to make "Chief" Jessie – we gave out a lots of "Humble Pie" during initiation! All in all, it was a sad night for the US Navy, a sad night for Jessie Ventura, and a sad night for me. I also have four son's all in the Navy and one awaiting orders to BUDS and glad your not his mentor (and brother you need to get your ass in the gym), with my eldest having completed two tours in Afghanistan. We are not truthers...end of story!

Just because *they* say it makes it so? What backing to you have to support your beliefs, other than "THEM" tellling you what is so.
      I find it blizarre that people just belive whatever they hear. What is even more bizarre is that (in my experience), every truther that I have read from or listened to, presents undisputable facts wheras, the patsies merely say " oh, you are crazy for thinking that" and walk away.

Yet we have wolves in our midst of mainstream sheep who don't take time to educate and be informed. My father is a retired Navy pilot. I have 4 of my 5 sons in military service. 5 tours. The gulf wars have been about money....OIL. Viet Nam was Johnson's brainchild for money in personal income. Which is how the Kennedy bros were murdered/assasinated. Iraq was a lie as was Afghan. Check your info more clearly ... I have posted authentic video links in this blog above and made other comments. It is a sad state and surreal to find out our country's self respect has been exposed as not up to decency or integrity. Ventura is right on in his research and interviewing others involved. Your service was of worth as was Venturas. He just has the courage to risk his life to reveal the truths. But before you come back and make any more accusations agains Ventura and how he has dicredited himself and the seals. DO THE HOMEWORK and watch those links. It adds up. I've also made other comments below. Take a bit of time to be TRULY informed.

This guy is a joke, constantly embarrassing himself. I feel sorry for his guests. They accept to be interviewed on CNN because of the big name of the media and are confronted with this moron. On Jesse Ventura: I am not familiar with American politics and I don't know much about Jesse Ventura. This is not about Jesse Ventura, this is about the complete lack of journalism in what Morgan is doing. CNN should fire Morgan.

Later on, a couple of crew workers found them along with some FEDS.

Simply discounting them as nutty is disingenuous and insulting to all. * Piers' feigned shock that the American government could do wrong is simply imbecilic. * Piers' defense of the status quo was uncreative, disgusting, revolting, and tiring. Congratulations! Piers now rates below the infobabes in my mind.

    First and last time I watch Piers Morgan Tonight. He was grossly over closed minded, stuck his opinions where they didnt belong, and didn't engage well with his guest at all. Worst interviewer ever solely based poor tactics to get Jesse to talk and go off tangent. Sloppy and rude because, why? he didnt AGREE?

    Oh and by the way, watch the video replay, Piers said, don't be a coward – not "you" are a coward!!! There's a difference, he didn't name-call.

      For someone to say, "Don't be a coward"....wouldnt they have to think the person was a coward in the first place? Listen carefully now.....DON'T BE A COWARD.....what do you hear? Let me try it again....DON'T BE A COWARD.....are you hearing it? How about this....DON'T BE A COWARD!!!!!!!!!!".....what is that implying? Hmmmmm.....you are a coward....don't be a coward...tomato.....tomata....

    You saw Piers use a denial tactic about why we went into afghanistan/iraq.
    how can anyone really argue that we only went into iraq after oil. where were the weapons?

    He just want live with the idea that his brother went into the army and risked his life for oil. So he just completely denies it.

    He seems really closed minded, this Piers. Im sure Larry would have handed this much more professionally.

    Jesse Ventura is an idiot – period. Obviously intelligence wasn't an essential qualification to become a Seal in Jesse's day. I sure hope that has changed.

    Shame on you Piers Morgan, you can't insult and criticize your guest that way, it's obvious you have no idea on how to be a journalist, go back to being a talent judge.

    Just to add I watch CNN all the time but whenever Piers Morgan comes on I am going to be changing the channel, I have totally lost interest in his shows.

    Ok...about 10 posts above I listed links that can be clicked on. VERY compelling to include witnesses who saw the retrieved black boxes at ground zero....when they were denied by the official 911 report as being not recovered. They are indestructible. The FBI visited some of the witnesses and told them to shut up or else. 2nd....there is no way that the 3rd building (#7) was brought down by a plane. Nope 2 planes only flew into the 2 twin tower buildings. Witnesses said they heard explosions below and before the 2 planes hit. Molten metal underneath the rubble pile. OK...NOW....go to Tora Bora Delta Force Bin Laden interview. Check how higher ups diverted the commander on the ground to not take Bin Laden out. NOW....we know that Obama has reversed his decision to try the supposed mastermind/perp at Gitmo when it was going to be shut down and trials held on our home turf in the USA. WHY? I BELIEVE to shelter the public from knowing about the 911 conspiracy being leaked out by the Al Queda primary in piloting those planes in to their targets. JESSE is RIGHT on. And you naysayers critical of him and his uncoverings are IGNORANT. You have done no research. Click on those links above and then make your comments. You may have to eat crow I do believe. The truth sets us free from governmental corruption and criminals at our highest levels. This is also why Collin Powell walked from the Bush Admin. Knowing about 911 and the lies surrounding going into Iraq as well. My god people are you not putting your brains into gear and Looking beyond the surface distractions and rumor? BTW Ventura rocked in his chair for two reasons that I KNOW of. One is his anxiety over having crosshairs on his back downrange, secondly he likely has some PTSD from the fear he's had to endure since military service AT LEAST. Ventura's courage is life threatening for him and EXCEPTIONAL as a true patriot and american who wants what's right and is disgusted of our government results and treatment. AS AM I. The Johnson era, Nixon, 16 yrs of father and son Bushs, are at very least disgusting and plain criminal. Johnson and his cronnies killed the Kennedy bros.....google "Hunt Deathbed Confession Kennedy" DO THE RESEARCH OR SHUT UP AND DON't make distorted judgements in knee jerk reaction and argument. I just say ... FOLLOW THE MONEY and put the pieces together.

    Piers Morgan doesn't only get through an interview he gets the most out of an interview. The questions asked by Morgan were hard hitting and got to the point to the extent that JV exposed himself as a fraud. It was refreshing journalism that turned me on to CNN at 9 pm.

    JESSE VENTURA IS RIGHT ..THE ARCHITECTS ARE RIGHT, AND THIS GOVERNMENT IS EVIL .....JUST YOU GUYS WAIT AND SEE. I "POO- POOED" THE ISSUE 10 YEARS AGO AND LAUGHED IN SOMEONES FACE WHEN THEY TRIED TO TELL ME ABOUT THE TRUTH OF 9/11. I WASTED ALL THOSE YEARS UNTIL 2010 WHEN I ACTUALLY LOOKED AT THE VIDEOS OF THE BUILDINGS FALLING DOWN....AND THE KICKER FOR ME WAS BUILDING # 7 AND HOW IT FELL, AND WHEN IT FELL. IT IS SO OBVIOUS THAT THE TRUTH HAS BEEN WASHED OVER AND COVERED UP. ALL THESE LIVES LOST FOR GREED AND GOVERNMENT CONTROL. MAY GOD HELP US ALL IF WE DO NOT STAND AND SUPPORT A NEW INVESTIGATION OF THIS HORRIFIC EVENT ON 9-11-2001. THERE IS JUST SO MUCH INVOLVED IN THE COVERUP THAT IT IS NEARLY SICKENING. I COULD NOT SLEEP FOR 2 WEEKS WHEN I FINALLY REALIZED THE FRAUD INVOLVED. SCARY ..VERY SCARY INDEED !!!

      Refreshingly honest – and I think it's the same story for many of us. It's very difficult to accept that our government could do such a thing to scare us into giving up our freedoms and liberties. But, the evidence is hard for a rational person to deny. Speaking of denial, as a country we are so deep into it now, it's what I REALLY fear. How will we ever get back the freedoms and liberties we have lost? Could there be an "American Spring"? Suddenly, it seems possible what with the Occupy Wall Street movement, and national disgust over our government's waste over political gridlock, squabbling, and inability to do its job. An American Spring is what I'm praying for. It's something we should all work to make happen.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    I hope the low intelligence level indicated by the majority of the comments here is not representative of the average intelligence level. Logic and common sense do not seem to enter into thought processes anymore. Did you ever see the movie "Idiocracy"?

    Jessie Ventura – what a dangerous idiot! Too many years working in make believe has it consuming his everyday life. What an insulting load of garbage for for anyone who could even partially swallow it.... For those who see it for what it is it is so pathetic it is not even laughable....

    Jesse Ventura is RIGHT ON. I have studied this issue of 911, Afghan, and Iraq for the last few years. Plenty have "come out" for different elements of the event at ground zero including bldg 7...from multiple witnesses and science review....it absolutely was an inside deal ... in the know was Bush and Cheney. So anyone that wants to deny....well you can send me an email at valkrocket@msn.com....and I'll hook you up with compelling links in totality cannot be denied. BUSH and Cheney both should be in prison for murder and war crimes. End of story. ps The Bush family empire has been connected to the Laden family of Saudi Arabia since back in the 60s ....business and friends. There is no denying this.

    2 days ago Piers Morgan was discussing military intervention policy with Ron Paul, and low and behold Piers oafishly interuptd Ron as Ron started to bring up the subject of the actual US casuality number from the Iraq War. Last week Piers interupted another guest whom was discussing
    importing foreign high tech workers into the US. Again Piers forcefully suddenly babbled, Sean Hannity style, until the station break, forever ending the topic's discussion. Piers was well trained by Murdock. He does not belong on any news network whcih proports to be professional and honest. Piers Morgan has no integrity nor does he honor the CNN audience. Please show Piers the door.
