On Friday, July 23th 2010, Jesse Ventura claimed in an interview on the Alex Jones show that the military has been attempting to prevent him from filming at the JFK Eternal Flame. Ventura's show, "Conspiracy theories" on Tru T.V. is currently in the process of filming it's 2nd season.
Ventura claims he was filming an episode on the assassination of JFK when he was contacted by the U.S. army chief of public affairs. The U.S. army chief of public affairs told Ventura he was denied access to film in Arlington National Cemetery because of the nature of his television program, claiming it was inappropriate. He specifically stated a particular episode which discusses the assassination of JFK claiming it's "contrary to the mission of the U.S. army." Ventura argued the point stating "why can't I film in front of the eternal flame? Kevin Costner did in the film JFK. It makes no sense?" Ventura also claims homeland security followed him during the filming of the episode.
