GOV. JESSE VENTURA, MINNESOTA: I agree wholeheartedly
with the president, Larry, and
the fact that this was a direct attack on
the United States of America.
And if you think back for a moment...
CNN Host Larry King: St. Paul, Minnesota,
with Governor Jesse Ventura,
the governor of Minnesota,
himself a former Navy SEAL.
The president says we're at war,
how do you read that, governor?
GOV. JESSE VENTURA, MINNESOTA: Well, I agree
wholeheartedly with the president,
Larry, and the fact that this was a direct
attack on the United States of America.
And if you think back for a moment, you know,
Pearl Harbor, as vicious as that was,
it was still an attack against a military installation.
This was attack against our total civilian population,
so I view this as even worse than Pearl Harbor.
L. KING: How about the question that
you being a veteran of one of the unique services,
the Navy SEALs,
about military preparedness.
Are you satisfied with the United States'
military capabilities?
VENTURA: Well, I can't speak for all of the
military, Larry, but I just got back from my annual
SEAL team reunion
the third week of August out in Coronado,
California, and I can assure you the Navy SEALs are ready.
They are always ready.
They are well prepared.
They are well financed,
and they are highly motivated.
So, I have no worry about my old unit,
and I expect the same from all the rest of
the military units as well.
I'm sure that they are ready,
and they are in the process of being as prepared
as they possibly can.
L. KING: And what, governor, in your opinion,
is the retaliation, when the enemy is officially unknown?
VENTURA: Well, it's certainly going to be
a different type of war,
Larry. It's, as you know, as in Pearl Harbor,
we knew who the enemy was.
But I think through our intelligence gathering,
we'll have a very good idea of who the enemy is here,
and I think we really need to look at it
as what the president has talked about,
that the enemy is all the terrorists,
because we can't leave any stone unturned
in this. We have to go full force, in my opinion,
and do the job that needs to get done.
Otherwise, we could face other retaliations
like the one we just saw last Tuesday.
L. KING: So, therefore, a lot of intelligence
work on the on America's part and a lot of patience required
of the citizenry?
VENTURA: Exactly.
We want to know who we're going after.
And it's going to require intelligence on
the part of all of our allies,
because the unique thing I saw about this
this wasn't an attack just on the United States
of America. If you look at the casualty list,
you see triple-digit casualties for multiple
number of countries throughout the world.
This was an attack on the entire free world,
and we must respond accordingly,
with the full force effort from all of the free world,
as our allies standing as one.
L. KING: Now, despite the increased obvious amount of patriotism,
we're told that there has not been any
great rush of enlistments in the armed forces. Does that surprise you?
VENTURA: Well, I don't know. The word that I got on talk radio here
was that a lot of the Vietnam veterans were calling up
to see if they could re-enlist. And I believe it's a case for many of the
Vietnam veterans this will be a war that will have the full
backing of our country, which was something of course that didn't
happen in Vietnam. So, you have many of those veterans really
wanting and want to feel a part of what they did many years ago and
be focussed on something that the entire country is solidly behind them
at. I think when push comes to shove,
the young people of the United States will react
the same as generations before them.
L. KING: Thank you, governor, always good seeing you.
VENTURA: Very good, Larry, I always appreciate being here.
L. KING: Wish it was under better circumstances.
Governor Jesse Ventura, the governor of Minnesota.
VENTURA: We really need to look at it as what
the president has talked about,
that the enemy is all the terrorists,
This was an attack on the entire free world.
