Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura, who has revealed plans to run as Vice President with Ron Paul in 2012, is making his presence felt with news-making interviews and explosive statements on 9/11 attacks, President Barack Obama and President-hopeful Michele Bachmann.

The former governor-turned-conspiracy theorist, who is currently promoting his book '63 Documents the Government Doesn't Want You to Read', said that he would run for Vice President if Ron Paul ran as an Independent.

On ABC's Good Morning America with George Stephanopoulos, Ventura made light the idea of Michele Bachmann, often identified as the un-Palin, running for President.

You've got a couple of candidates from your state, Michele Bachmann and Tim Pawlenty, Stephanopoulos observed before asking Ventura, Could she be President?

Not with my vote, I'll tell you that, Ventura asserted.

On CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, the Vice-President hopeful when questioned on the claims linking President Barack Obama to the CIA, he retorted, Can you say he's not?

Making another controversial statement, Ventura claimed that Dick Cheney not only knew of the September 11 attacks but also allowed it to happen to further the Middle East agenda.

I believe Dick Cheney knew it, said Ventura.

They allowed it to happen to further their agenda in the Middle East, he added.
