Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura has elaborated on an announcement
that he is to host a new TV show investigating conspiracies, revealing
that he will broach the subject of the 9/11 attacks.
Ventura told listeners of the nationally syndicated
Alex Jones show that the TruTV
series he is working on will look into 9/11 and ask
questions surrounding the stonewalling of the truth concerning
"To me that is the question we are going to
try and pursue," Ventura stated.
"People who will stonewall 9/11, well why?
If what you are saying is true then simply tell the truth and
let the chips fall where they may." he continued.
While stressing that he did not yet want to reveal
all the details behind the show, Ventura told listeners that the
show will approach the subject matter from a unique angle.
"We're going after a different perspective
of 9/11 here and I think it'll be very entertaining as well as
fact finding. I think people are going to find it very very interesting."
"We're going to give both sides of the issue,
I'd like people to understand that too," Ventura said.
"We're not just coming at this show with a
perspective in mind that Ok this is what we're going to promote
and this is the way we're going... ultimately the viewer will
have to decide what they do and do not want to believe."

"Conspiracies have fascinated me for going
on 25 years now starting with the murder of John F Kennedy, and
watching it evolve into everything else and now into the 9/11
conspiracy." Ventura, a former Navy Seal elaborated.
"I love history and it disturbs me when history
is not recorded correctly or history is misled because generations
from now people will never get a clear picture of what went on."
"I think it's very intriguing stuff. And even
for people that don't believe or don't want to, or whatever it
may be, it's still very compelling and interesting. In many ways
real life has more mystery and intrigue than what anyone could
make up in their own heads and write down as a fiction writer."
Though clearly enthused by the project's progress,
the former independent mayor and Governor cautioned that the show
could come under threat should powerful interests decide that
the exposure Ventura can bring to an issue could be undesirable
"I'm going to question people and I think my
credibility precedes me to where they can't take me lightly. If
we see the light of day, that is. I've warned all the people that
I am working with at the Tru network that I still would only give
this show a 50/50 chance of seeing the light of day." he
Ventura also spoke on a variety of other issues
including the reaction to his public support for the 9/11 truth
movement, his views on the economic bailout bill, as well as his
best selling book Don't Start The Revolution Without Me.
