Evidence that Van Jones is "9/11 Truther" dates back to 2002

Evidence that Van Jones is "9/11 Truther" dates back to 2002

In a segment last night called “All the President’s Radicals,” FOX News host Sean Hannity asked: Should Obama “Green Jobs Czar” Van Jones be fired after revelations that he was part of the twisted “9/11 Truther” movement, which holds President George W. Bush responsible for the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

“He is not fit for office,” Hannity declared. “The only thing that is clear is that Jones must be fired.”

Meanwhile, blogger Gateway Pundit has been doing the job most mainstream journalists won’t do, by uncovering much of this damning evidence of Van Jones’ twisted beliefs.

This morning, Gateway Pundit uncovered proof that, despite his protestations to the contrary, Van Jones has been a “9/11 Truther” as far back as 2002.

Indeed, the documents pictured at the top of this post give indisputable evidence of that. Jones served on the “organizing committee” for a group calling for answers to questions such as the following:

Why were no fighter planes dispatched to intercept the four hijacked planes on September 11th, in violation of standard procedures? Who actually was in control of the “hijacked planes”? Why is the evidence being destroyed when an investigation of the World Trade Center collapse is needed?

Did the CIA have foreknowledge of the attack, who tried to profit with put options on American, United, Merrill Lynch stock just before the attack?

Gateway Pundit deserves a Pulitizer Prize for covering this story.

I’ve been saying this for years: if you sincerely believe that agents of the United States government in general, and the President in particular, actually supervised the death of 3000 of your fellow citizens, then it is your duty and moral obligation to either renounce your citizenship and flee the country, or engage in armed revolt.

Failure to do either reveals you, as a “9/11 Truther,” to be nothing more than a gutless poseur and a moral exhibitionist, easily thrilled by the dubious frisson of risk-free coffeehouse radicalism. You are beneath contempt.

As Mark Steyn quipped yesterday while sitting in for Rush Limbaugh: If Van Jones really believes that “9/11 was an inside job” — to cite the ubiquitious bumber sticker — “Well, he’s inside now. Let him investigate!”

Indeed: with his access to classified documents, shouldn’t Van Jones be playing the part of Daniel Ellsberg in all this, heroically revealing evidence of George Bush’s sinister plot for all the world to see…?

That he’s done no such thing tells you all you need to know about him: Van Jones is either a cowardly opportunist, a cynical liar, a lunatic, or all three.

As I write this, it is the morning of a Friday before the long Labor Day weekend — typically the day government bureaucrats choose to quietly release “bad” news.

I predict that Van Jones’s resignation will be announced before 6PM ET this evening.
