Green Jobs! Net Neutrality! Reinvestigate 9/11!


Via Instapundit, it seems that Obama's "green jobs czar," a goofy radical named Van Jones, is also a 9/11 truther. Terrific.

From the Washington Times:

Mr. Jones signed a statement for in 2004 demanding an investigation into what the Bush Administration may have done that "deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war."

His name is listed with 99 other prominent signatories supporting such an investigation on the website, including Code Pink co-founders Medea Benjamin and Jodi Evans, comedienne Janeane Garofalo, Democratic Rep. Cynthia McKinney of Georgia and others.  He's identified as the executive director for the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights on the statement, which he founded before going to the White House. The statement is available here. Mr. Jones is number 46.

The only surprise here is that, according to the 911Truth website, Richie Havens is also a truther. For a taste of Jones's politics (spoiler: not a fan of capitalism, but a huge fan of net neutrality), check out this speech from 2007.
