Posted on 05/18/2009 1:08:52 PM PDT by steve-b
Continuing his book promotion media tour, former Gov. Jesse Ventura today resumed his blunt criticism of the Bush administration's interrogation policies and took another shot at former Sen. Norm Coleman.
Appearing on ABC's "The View" talk show this morning, Ventura called the waterboarding of suspected terrorists "torture."
"If this country follows the rule of law -- which we do -- torture is against the law," he said, adding, "I'm ashamed of my country."...
He was less harsh about Minnesota's still-unresolved Senate race than he was last week when he called Coleman "a hypocrite."
"It appears [Al] Franken won," he said, contending that when the state Supreme Court rules on the election results "it should end there."
Ventura also renewed his call for legalizing marijuana, something he advocated as long ago as 1998, when he was running for governor....

Making us sit through his “boa” wrestling days was torture enough.
And his governorship was pure torture here in Minnesota.
Yidiots on Parade 2009.
Hannity has Jesse coming up too..
Sorry, but listening to his voice for 5 seconds is like fingernails on a blackboard.
Steroids have rotted his small brain and Arnulds. A ex-wrestler who engaged in a fraud sport moralizing about fighting terrorism.
Piss off Jesse, I'm ashamed of you.
Given what Jesse has said, I’d wager that if given an hour or so, Cheney could get Jesse to admit that waterboarding is not torture. ^^
But, he’s not ashamed of Code Pink and that Church whose members have trashed our military members who gave their last full measure of devotion in defense of this nation. He’s not ashamed that Michelle O had never been proud of the country that provided her with status before becoming what she now is. He’s not ashamed of the political hatchet job done against President Bush for 7 years by the dimocRATS while this nation has been engaged in a two front war. He’s not ashamed of the way his state allowed the Senatorial election to be manipulated by ACORN (which has allowed the outcome of that election to drag on through the courts). Yep, he’s only ashamed that this nation’s best were able to obtain actionable intelligence through enhanced interrogation techniques in order to prevent additional attacks and civilian deaths at the hands of our enemies. Great thing to be ashamed of Ventura. You’ve had more than your 15 minutes. Now, please go away.
Just as well he’s moved to Mexico.
It is obvious this douchebag wants to legalize marijuana - just listen to him talk for more than 5 minutes.
I liked him.
Of course, back then he was sane (or maybe just better at hiding his insanity.)
He didn’t really go off the deep end until after he was out of office, i.e the whole 9/11 “truther” comments and all the other nonsense he started spouting...
just one of Soros’s buttboyz..
Bwah! Didn't the voter's of Minnesota fire him?
He is qualified to talk about torture because of his military (UDT, SEAL) experience but, at this point, it looks like he’d rather sell books.
Oh I am so happy that Sean Hannity is going to give this jerk a forum.
L-O-S-E-R. Hard to believe he was a SEAL.
Ventura is your typical Libertarian - Third Party L Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin Loon
He rants on as a 9/11 Truther. Ventura is Michael Moore with a boa
