Jesse Ventura

Supports Navy SEAL Book

'We Deserve to Know'

EXCLUSIVE

091312_jesse_ventura_launch
Jesse Ventura is throwing his support behind the ex-Navy SEAL who wrote the tell-all book about the killing of Osama bin Laden ... telling TMZ, "We deserve to know."

Ventura -- a former Navy SEAL and Gov. of Minnesota -- was out in NYC yesterday when we asked him about U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta threatening to punish "Mark Owen" over his book "No Easy Day."

"I don't have a problem with it " Ventura says ... "It's over. We deserve to know ... our tax dollars pay for this ... we have every right to know what we pay taxes on."

He continued, "Once the operation is over, you're not compromising anything then."

"I'm glad he did it ... I'd like to hear from boots on the ground instead of politicians in Washington."

There are somethings that should not be made public. This is one. What did we gain from knowing how this went down...NOTHING!! He signed a confidentiality contract and this book is proof that he broke that contract. I am surprise that the government has not pull the book.

Jesse Ventura Is so Full of Shizzzzz ! He's always on the whole SEAL tip but, he did absolutely nothing when he was a SEAL. He sat aboard a ship in the Philippines the entire time he was in Vietnam. That's why he doesn't talk about his mission when asked, because he didn't go on any.

Amazing how when politicians go on TV and brag up a secret mission they are deserving of re-election. When a hero talks about it he is suddenly a traitor. I don't hear all the other Nay Seals complaining. I do hear a bunch of hacks sucking up for their TV interview time. Wish they would just shut their pie holes and move along.

If Jesse & the SEAL was right about all this and the CIA was against it, you can bet your ASS we'd see ALOT of ominous posts on message boards saying that we "don't need to know". Oh wait......
