"I don't want to live in East Berlin, Sean." "The terrorists came in through Canada, so now we're going to fence off Mexico?"


I agree with him that WTC7 looks an awful lot like a controlled demolition. (Doesn't mean it is, but it sure looked like it.) I don't agree with him about the main WTC towers, though. I think the official explanation makes sense for those.

He's completely full of shit. First of all, he spouts the lie that the September 11 terrorists entered the USA by illegally entering from Canada. This is not true. Not one of them entered the USA via Canada. This is common knowledge among anyone who has done any fact-checking. That he is still spreading the lie almost seven years later shows how intellecutally lazy he is.

A controlled demolition involves using explosives to remove key supports. This allows the weight of the stucture to collapse on itself. Structural steel, after prolong exposure to heat, loses much of its strength. The weakened supports allow the structure to collapse on itself.

Ventura claims jet fuel does not "burn hot." Jet A-1 can burn as hot as 980 degrees (that's 1796 degress on the Farenheit scale). I think that qualifies as hot. Again, we catch Mr. Ventura in an error that two minutes or less with Google could have correccted. Furthermore, the jet fuel would ignite furniture, papers, and all the other junk with which modern offices are filled.

Interestingly, Mr. Ventura did not lie about the one thing that he normally lies about. He didn't claim to have been a SEAL, instead claiming (truthfully) to have a UDT diver.

I don't think Mr. Ventura is deliberately lying about anything here (not that I put him above it, I just don't think he's that clever). He is just too lazy to check important facts and too quick to jump to conclusions and much too quick to shoot his mouth off.
