Jesse Ventura Versus Conspiracy Theories

Jesse Ventura,Conspiracy Theories
"Okay guys, what's the first stop?"

Jesse Ventura (or "The Body", "The Great", "The Star", "The Mind", and "The Governing Body" whichever you prefer) has been a professional wrestler, wrestling commentator, Navy Underwater Demolition Teams (UDT) member, actor, radio and television talk show host AND the Governor of Minnesota.
I've always liked Jesse, from way back when he was wrestling.
And I like him now because even though I may not agree 100% with everything he says, he makes me think.
Anyway, Jesse is about to venture (not a pun) into a new arena (not a pun again).

Jesse will host "Conspiracy Theories With Jesse Ventura" on cable's truTV, a Turner Broadcasting System channel.
Of course you know Jesse is outspoken about conspiracy theories.
He's stated several times in books and TV interviews that the assassination of John F Kennedy and the 9/11 terrorist attacks were plots by conspirators.

Jesse actually went to Cuba in 2002 and asked Fidel Castro face to face if he had anything to do with the assassination.
But instead of turning into a 1980s action movie, where Castro admits it and Jesse has to fight his way out of Cuba to get the info to the American people (boy I went off on a tangent there didn't I?) Castro looked at him and said "We would never be so crazy to do something like that.".

In this new show, Jesse will go around the world to investigate a variety of unnamed conspiracies.
My mind is fairly reeling with the possibilities here.
Jesse storming a Grand Lodge or even the Vatican?
Pounding the truth out of NASA scientists?
Giving Bush a chairshot and demanding to know what really happened on 9/11?

Okay I know none of that will happen.
But I can dream can't I?

I love Jesse Ventura! I believe that no discovery of fact, however trivial, can be wholly useless to the race, and that no trumpeting of falsehood, however virtuous in intent, can be anything but vicious. I believe that all government is evil, in that all government must necessarily make war upon liberty.” ~ H.L. Mencken Indeed, I devoutly believe the same sort of people who conspired to kill Kennedy—wealthy, well-protected elites, war lovers and imperialists--also conspired to mastermind and thus profit from the events of 9-11. Perhaps the greatest reason many Americans believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone and killed Kennedy is that a majority of Americans have never shot any guns. If the Warren Commission had been composed of unbiased shooters instead of senators and lawyers, the final verdict would likely have rejected the ludicrous assumption that Oswald acted alone. The “trumpeting of falsehood, however virtuous in intent,” was indeed a vicious lie, supported by the government then and now. "I could not have done it,” said former US Marine sniper, Craig Roberts. Credited with numerous kills while serving in Vietnam , Roberts turned an objective eye on the shot heard ‘round the world. After he visited Dealey Plaza, after viewing the so-called “sniper’s lair,” on the sixth floor of the book depository, and after staring at the large oak tree overspreading much of Elm Street, Roberts said, “I walked away from the window in disgust. I had seen all I needed to know that Oswald could not have been the lone shooter.” But Roberts, a retired police investigator, wanted to know what did happen. Not content to dismiss the improbable feat, he delved into the crime from every angle. “First, I analyzed the scene as a sniper . . . I looked at the engagement angles. It was entirely wrong…Here, from what I could see, three problems arose that would influence my shots. First, the target was moving away at a drastic angle to the right from the window, meaning that I would have to position my body to compete with the wall and a set of vertical water pipes .. . . This would be extremely difficult for a right-handed shooter. Second, I would have to be ready to fire exactly when the target emerged past some tree branches that obscured the kill zone. Finally, I would have to deal with two factors at the same time; the curve of the street, and the high-to-low angle formula—a law of physics Oswald would not have known.” Gunnery Sergeant Carlos Hathcock, the former senior instructor for the US Marine Corps Sniper Instructor School at Quantico, Virginia, it could not be done as described by the FBI investigators.” “Let me tell you what we did at Quantico,” Hathcock recalls. “We reconstructed the whole thing: the angle, the range, the moving target, the time limit, the obstacles, everything. I don’t know how many times we tried it, but we couldn’t duplicate what the Warren Commission said Oswald did. Now if I can’t do it, how in the world could a guy who was a non-qual on the rifle range and later only qualified 'marksman' do it?” Of course, sergeant Carlos Hathcock was only the most famous American military sniper in history, credited with a confirmed 93 kills. But mainstream media sponsorship 40 years later, continue to argue that an average shooter like Oswald, using a decrepit, war surplus weapon, could have killed Kennedy.
