Jesse Ventura’s ‘Conspiracy Theory’ takes a look at 9/11 mysteries

December 13, 2009

(ChattahBox) – Former Navy Seal, Entertainer and Minnesota Governor, Jesse Ventura, and his new show “Conspiracy Theory,” on cable station TruTV takes a look at the 9/11  attacks in Episode 2, and claims they were an inside job. Ventura explores theories ranging from the suspicious collapse of Building 7, a 47-story tall skyscraper that was not hit by a plane, the missing black box recorders, to the possibility that previously-planted explosives brought down the WTC towers.

In  Part 1 (above): Jesse starts out speaking with Syracuse writing teacher Donna Marsh O’Connor, who lost her daughter in the attacks, and just wants to see a real  investigation.  And William Rodriguez a janitor at the North Tower of the World Trade Center , who heroically evacuated many survivors on Sept. 11, and says an explosion happened below them.

In Part 2 (above) Jesse speaks with Van Romero at Research lab in New Mexico about his tests with Super Thermite.

In Part 3 (above) Interview with Michael Bellone, who says in the rubble of Ground Zero, he saw at least one flight recorder that was found, although the 9-11 commission says none of the “black boxes” were found. And corroboration from Dave Lindorff, that the black boxes were found.

In Part 4 (above)  Jesse meets Michael Bellone again, who says his sources in the airline industry have been threatened and are on the run, and no longer want to speak on the record. After, an interview with an FBI official Jack Cloonan,who pretty much denies any black box was found, Bellone has a change of heart and goes on to claim his airline sources now tell him the hijackers were in the cockpit of the planes before they took off and someone allowed them to take off. That’s why, Ventura reasons, the black boxes have been hidden.

    Just finished watching my recording of Conspiracy Theory. Watched it with an opened mind. I think Jesse’s staff should send out their resume as soon as possible. I just removed this show from my dvr list. I think the Gov has been drinking too much “Kool-aid” with Michael Moore. All Washed up!

    Dear Jessie Ventura,

    Thank you for your inspiring program and determination for the truth. Please contact me for further important details that might be helpful to your endeavour. I am a veteran 9/11 truther and researcher, a friend of Prof. David Ray Griffin and of other 9/11 researchers.

    This program raises some very intriguing questions about what happened on 9-11. Other good questions remain, PLEASE keep asking! Take a look at CNN’s pictures of the plane right before it hit the second tower. What is that on the underside of the plane?

  4. Dean Livelsberger on December 13th, 2009 4:36 pm

    So, MIke Bellone tells us that he knows people who will corroborate his statements to Ventura, but all of a sudden, they are afraid to talk? Hogwash!! If anyone exists that truly has information that would prove a government conspiracy, they would become the most protected people in the world.

    If these witnesses came forward to the press and the world with their information, the government would guarantee their safety, because if they talked and then started having ‘accidents’ or ‘disappearing’, the conspiracy and government involvement would be obvious, especially considering how the drive-by media feels about the government of then-President Bush. They would be supremely pleased if they thought they could connect the dots back to the government.

    I promise you that any of these witnesses would be as heavily protected as President Obama.

    I believe something is going on, but Bellone knows people who know, but won’t talk? Pu-leeze. But it did get him his 15 minutes of fame, didn’t it?

    Jesse, how about those several jets that were alloweed to leave for Saudi , arabia when all other air traffic in the U.S. was grounded ? Who did they want to get out of our country so urgently? Someone had to place those demolitions ,if indeed they were there.Hmmmm, maybe it was just the concusion that made #7 fall. Sure, that was probably it alright!! Keep at it pal..

  6. Randy Cole on December 13th, 2009 6:49 pm

    “If anyone exists that truly has information that would prove a government conspiracy, they would become the most protected people in the world” Oh really? Who’s going to protect them, the FBI? If they want to hide the truth they would ignore them or persecute them which is exactly what’s happening. The MSM, ruled by the NY Times and the CIA will fight the truth till their dying breath.
    9-11 was a contract job. You need to see 9-11 BLUEPRINT FOR TRUTH.

  7. Earl w on December 13th, 2009 6:57 pm

    I remember watching the original films of the towers, and immediatly realized there was something wrong with the picture, and declared that the buildings were going to come down.

    But I was amazed to see them come down in rubble, with few chunks.
    Then when you play it back slowly in frames you can see hints of explosions.
    There is no doubt in my mind that this was rigged up.

    This was done in the same manner as the Kennedy assassination, being covered from every angle, and aided by the gov. Nothing less than a major conspiracy. This puts into question many elements of our gov., and points to a huge coverup by the investigation.

    I know I saw a flame thrower on a tank at Waco too. Same BS there.
    I also have my reservations about the Oklahoma fed. bldg. I have relatives that helped clean that mess up. Lots of questions.
    People in doubt of what is hapening in this nation need to go back to 1963, and watch one of the last national addresses given by JFK. He spent an hour telling the nation about conspiracies by secret societies, secret oaths, and illegal proceedings. About bribes, and collusions. One month later he was dead.
    Get a clue.
    Do you really think that it is a mistake that every aspect of this nation is in a shambles? That everything can be so neglected by accident?
    We are being robbed, dismantled, sold overseas, and sold into communism, with vigorous determination, FOR GREED and POWEWR.
    The will of the few is outweighing the needs of the many.
    Who is the enemy? The Rockefeller foundation, the royal Arabian families, and a handfull of other people so wealthy they never see money. They controll or federal reserve, and both of our political parties.
    They absolutley do not care about anyone else, They are not asking for permission, and kill everything in the way.
    Its called the new world order.

  8. True Truther on December 13th, 2009 9:28 pm

    The program raised several important questions. Including William Rodriguez was a mistake IMHO that only hurt its credibility. Willie has been traveling around the world telling implausible tall tales for years.

    Though he claimed that by opening fire exit doors he saved hundreds of lives, not one of these people can be found to come forward and verify this.

  9. freedomfighter on December 14th, 2009 1:12 am

    While the show has a bit of the “scary music” and “hyper drama” that rings a little cheesy, Jesse did great work at bringing up three major points that just about any thick American should question:

    (1) Explosion in the basement BEFORE the plane hit.
    (2) Thermite explosive residue found in the rubble.
    (3) Black boxes found and lied about.

    The people who know need to testify NOW. I know it can be scary but, please, stop being cowards and, as Jesse said, “Let the truth set you free.” How can you hold your tongue when so many–our very country–needs to hear the truth? You are actually in much more danger of “disappearing” if you DON’T speak on the record than if you do.

  10. David on December 14th, 2009 2:01 am

    One would have to be a true crackpot to believe none of the black boxes were found. . . the official story says they found a passport of one of the supposed hijackers on the ground after the attack. . . so a passport is recoverable, but none of the black boxes are recoverable? Yeah right. Only a crackpot would believe such a story.

    Jessie ventura , Alex jones , Ron Paul, Charlie sheen, David ick, lord christopher monckton.. this are people that has the Guts to stand up for The Peple and put there names on the lines for the truth…. god this people should at least be heard on all the networks and people need to listen and make there own minds up afterwords.. Not just hear the word conspiracy and look the other way…. why? people need to look :conspiracy up and maybe open up to another side of the coin….

  14. Lynn Kathcart on December 14th, 2009 8:07 pm

    Great Job, but you need to follow up on the investigations. when it first happened my son knew right away that it was explosives, also look at the engines found on the ground they don’t even match the plane it was supposed to come from.
    How come security dogs were taken away from the site 2 weeks before the attack. Jeb Bush head of security.
    Also weeks after the attack was one of the planes calling numbers seen at another air port.
    How come weeks prior to attack the owner added terrost attacks on his insurance?
    Lets finish up with the investigation, and look at the building housing some of the debris from the towers. How about checking the Staten Island landfield???
    Jessie, please keep it up.

  15. Openminded American on December 14th, 2009 8:43 pm

    I admire Jesse and he has a lot of solid ideas (like getting rid of the Federal income tax and replacing it with a National Sales Tax). When I first heard him speak about this conspiracy during one of his book signings covered on CSPAN, I thought that he was nuts. After watching this – I am not so sure. Would it be possible that the Government KNEW of a planned attack but did nothing to prevent it so that we could go to war? Churchill know about Pearl Harbor, yet did not inform us in an effort to get the US to joint the war effort. History shows this to be a fact.

    After the 9/11 attacks – everyone was saying “why didn’t the FBI and CIA connect the dots…:” when discussing the evidence leading up to the attacks. Maybe they did connect the dots – but chose not to take action? Perhaps they knew that they needed a solid case to justify going after Muslim extremeists and Iraq -which was continuing to defy the UN reolutions against them? What better excuse for a war than to allow a massive attack on US soil (much like Pearl Harbor , 60 years earlier…)

    Could it be possible that the Superthermite resin that was identified in lab samples from ground zero was applied by terrorist conspiritors in a prelude to the airline attacks? If they had been planning these attacks for years – that would allow for pleanty of time for co-conspiritors to infiltrate building maintenence crews and apply Superthermite paint, knowing full well that the successful suicide attacks would ignite these prepared beams and cause them to fail – leading to the collapse of the building(s).

    Could it be that the Black Boxes were found – but “buried” to hide evidence of the Government’s knowledge of the highjakings as they were taking place? This would certainly be one explaination for their disappearance (if they were indeed found).

    I do not feel that the Government planned and then carried out 9/11 – but history shows the plausibility of the fact that our Government may have had advanced knowledge of the attacks and consciously chose to do nothing about it in order to justify the “greater good” of selling a war against extreme Islam and Iraq. I hate to think that our Government would perpetrate this – but I know that there are some really bad things in this world that we (the general public) don’t need or even want to know about. Sometime the Government has to involve itself in some God Awful business to protect the people of this Country. As the FBI agent, Jack Cloonan, told Jessee in the interview: “…does the United States, on occasion, shade things to protect sources and methods? Of course they do…Do they do things in the dead of night , like you did on the SEAL teams that we do not want discussed? Of course we do…”

    Maybe that is all we need to know.

  16. CC on December 16th, 2009 7:05 pm

    It is called a government cover up, a mafia war. Bush and Chaney waged a war on drugs but they were the biggest dealers of all. Basically they had to cover their tracks and by waging a war on drugs that is how they accompolished it. Bush and Chaney were going for dead body count, and winner took all in the bet, that is why there was a bailout. Your past politics and your present politics or the people in the white house are in on the cover up. Check who was in Hawaii the year before Obama’s election, other countries are telling the truth there is a “evil empire” that needs to be exposed.

  17. CC on December 16th, 2009 7:07 pm

    “Mission accompolished” was the tell all banner to let all the mafia’s know that he won the bet and that is why he threatned to with Marshall law if the bailout was not paid out, his butt at that point was on the line with all the major players.

    Do your research who is now backing your financial instutions so that they will not go down?

  19. George Pilieri on December 17th, 2009 1:32 pm

    I don’t doubt that there’s something fishy about 9-11. The problem is that most of the issues could be argued either way.
    After watching the 9-11 conspiracy show I inquired about the Black Boxes. The information I have is that 3 were confimed found. I believe the only one not found was from 2WTC.

  20. homecareking on December 17th, 2009 4:35 pm

    What Jesse Ventura speaks concerning a conspiracy over 9\11 is totally true in so many ways. People shouldn’t turn a blind eye when watching his conspiracy theorys shows for alot of what he says is documented and the government knows its true. Any one with a lick of sense and some knoowledge shoulld know that what is presented online or on tv is not what it appears to be. Our news broadcasts ect believe it or not are censored for various reasons. Things we know to believe aren’t what they appear to be. There is a shadow around these events that appears to distract us from the truth. I’d recommend to everyone too watch Gov Ventura’s show every wed night. Lets hope and pray the government dont try to block his show as if they did it would just prove what he says is true and im sure somebody out there wouldnt want that to happen….. Pray something good will come from all this info he puts out to the public. 🙂

  21. homecareking on December 17th, 2009 4:50 pm

    Concerning 9\11 that in itself has underlying agenda behind it all. The military were told to stand down to any interaction when the planes hit. This whole fiasco was planned out entirely even the so called recovery efforts at the 911 sights were preplanned. I tend to believe all 4 flight recorders were recovered and secretely spirited to a location not known to the public to be analyzed. I believe there was a extremely clever covert operation that was meticuliously choreographed precisely by different agencys in order to fool the public into believing we were attacked by unknown terrorists. All for the sake of starting a major war foor the price of oil. He that rules the oil rules the world and it seems in general terms this is what is happenning at the moment. But remember God has a say in everything and rest assured jesus will intercede before all this totally unfolds and when he comes back to the earth all hell will quake for sure…………. guard your souls people don’t give into the dark side no matter what ………………..

  22. Daniel on December 18th, 2009 1:34 am

    I find this show ridiculous. I’ve found so many flaws with his claims. For one thing, steel doesn’t have to melt in order to fail. It loses strength as it heats up. If you actually believe that there’s thermite on our walls, I dare you to light a match and see if it goes up in smoke. And the times where he finds a locked door, “why is this door locked? why won’t they let us in?” Umm…because they don’t want anybody in? And he’s gotta stop saying he’s a navy seal, he’s a former navy seal. There’s a difference.

  23. HURRICANE on December 19th, 2009 6:29 pm

    I guess if there had been a criminal investigation immediately after the attacks, these questions already would be answered and laid to rest.

    1. The ‘OBL/Muslim/Iraq/Iran’ (‘who cares! they’re evil!’) was offered virtually the same day, in the same way Building 7 fell after its news report.

    2. Re the lack of seismic data for an explosions theory. Dr Judy Wood has filed a case re Directed Energy Weapons.

    3. A good background primer is PIPELINE TO 911

    NOTE: Twenty-five former U.S. military officers have severely criticized the official account of 9/11 and called for a new investigation. They include former commander of U.S. Army Intelligence, Major General Albert Stubblebine, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Col. Ronald D. Ray, two former staff members of the Director of the National Security Agency; Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski, PhD, and Major John M. Newman, PhD, and many others. They are among the rapidly growing number of military and intelligence service veterans, scientists, engineers, and architects challenging the government’s story. The officers’ statements appear below, listed alphabetically.

    PPS Ephesians, for example, makes clear that the armor of God refers to the virtues of truth, justice and peace. See: Robert Draper, author of “Dead Certain: The Presidency of George W. Bush,” dozens of biblical passages, accompanied by images of soldiers knelt in prayer or marching across the desert, adorned the covers of classified documents prepared for Rumsfeld and Bush.

    was pretty disappointed in Jesse on this one. Seems like he’s fixating on arguable details, but not the “meat”. The meat of the conspiracy argument is the fact that there were molten pools of steel underneath buildings 1,2, and 7. This is UNEXPLAINABLE. The hottest this fire could have been is 800 degrees. What heated the steel structure to 1500 degrees? This is the SMOKING GUN! The government engineers are telling us with a straight face that the INCREASE in heat happened because the heat source was “blanketed” by debris. I learned in NINTH grade physical science that you can’t create heat with a blanket, but only keep the heat from radiating away so quickly. Isaac F’ing Newton could debate the NIST people on this one! Folks, we have a smoking gun. Let’s concentrate on this and not on missiles, pods, black boxes, or the multitude of internet garbage that makes us sound like crackpots. You can’t argue against physics.

  27. Rick Mallardi on December 27th, 2009 12:22 am

    It looks like he combed several high school drama departments for the crew. Obviously they are not journalists and the show is painfully staged. It also looks like (every show so far) he has a point of view going in (to justify the shows title). The man is smart and I don’t believe he’s doing this for any other reason than to earn a good living.

    The global warming show was nonsense too. I for one don’t believe in secrets.

    Secrets are like babies. Fun to make, difficult to keep.

    A secure government building, that was NOT hit by a plane, fell symmetrically, at free fall speed, through the path of greatest resistance into its own basement.

    Clear your brains people and realize this can ONLY happen with controlled demolition.

    Military grade nano-thermite was isolated from the dust.

    There are one hundred different items pointing to 9-11 as an inside job, but you need no more than this one fact.

    After watching the Bilderburg episode, I was wondering if the increase in Autism in children is part of that conspiracy to ruin the upcoming generation. Is that possible? I wonder if Jesse could inverstigate why so many children are being labeled autistic. Is it that we are more aware of the disease and can see it earlier or is it something in the food eaten or in the air we breath? There seems to be a sudden explosion in autism.

    I enjoy the shows.

  35. gerald trudeau on January 10th, 2010 3:27 am

    If Jesse is really a seeker of truth about 911 and not just a cheap showman,he’ll do more follow up shows. He never even mentioned Dr. Judy Wood {}, instead he focused on Stephen Jones and his disinformation. Perhaps his staff should have dug a little deeper into his past directed energy weapons backround before jumping on the thermite bandwagon. When I first visited Dr Wood;s website my initial reaction was,”She;s just a little too far out for me,” but when i came baack and saw the sat photos of the WTC building with all of the neat uniform sized 25 ft diameter holes that were drilled straight down through the roof and even a couple in the ajacent street, I became a believer. She is the most qualified scientist to date that has researched what happened on 911. The answer is even stanger than you think, but if you do think, it really all makes sense. But you better be brave!

  36. A.Wright on January 14th, 2010 2:41 pm

    Jesse Venture went on about how all the steel from the WTC site was removed ,not examined and melted down etc. Then later he is at the hanger at JFK airport where tons of steel is stored! Big cover up. About 2000 pieces of steel ,years after 911 which and was examined in connection with wrongful death cases of 911. A judges’ consent was required by the Port Authority to allow them to give the steel away to towns and cities who wanted it for menorials and he had to be satisfied that the steel was no longer required for examination. Giving it away. Big cover-up. The New York Times were able to do an article on the steel complete with pictures but Jesse Venture goes prowling outside with his ‘why won’t they let us in?’ deceptive charade. .
    Mike Bellone says he knows supervisors who heard the 911 flight recordings?? How did they get to hear them? Did the FBI play them the recordings from the black boxes they are ‘pretending’ they don’t have? Even a few intelligent questions from Mr.Ventura would expose that to be a crock, but he is too busy believing everything he is told.
    The guy talking about the ‘change in protocol’ for intercepting planes- all the researcher has to do is read the documents-the protocol before and the protocol after – and she could see there was no change. Better I suppose to mislead the viewers that to do a bit of reading.
