I couldnt listen to the whole rant either, but two things caught my attention. He claims that the US government has admitted that it staged the Gulf of Tonkin incident. This is utter crap. In fact, the historical investigation of the incident conducted by the NSA in 2005 concluded that the first engagement on the night of Aug. 2, 1964 was quite real, but the that the second engagement, on the night of August 4, was not, but was a case of the Maddox shooting at false radar targets. North Vietnamese General Phng Thế Ti admitted that they had attacked the Maddox but claimed it was in retaliation for attacks on NV fishing boats.

Second, Ventura demands to know where the energy came from to pulverize the concrete found at the World Trade Center after 9/11, correctly pointing out that the energy of the impacting airliners could not possibly do this. What he fails to realize is that the kinetic energy stored in the hundreds of thousands of tons of mass (the upper third of the building) falling 800 to 1300 feet and then landing on the rubble of the lower stories, is more than adequate to produce this effect.

Finally, Ventura is lying through his teeth when he claims to have been a SEAL. In fact he was a member of an Underwater Demolition Team. The UDTs were eventually folded into the SEALs, but not until 8 years after Ventura, who never saw combat, left the Navy.
