Too funny. It took 12 hours for the White House to come up with this ridiculous response…
Van Jones, Obama’s communist Green Czar, released a statement today saying that he is not now and never has been a 9-11 Truther.
Of course, that doesn’t explain how his signature landed on the 9-11 Truth.org statement demanding an investigation into the Bush regime for orchestrating the 9-11 attacks:
And, apparently he still stands by his Marxist beliefs.
Maybe it was some other kook named Van Jones with the Ella Baker Center who signed the petition?
Jake Tapper reported:
A top environmental official of the Obama administration issued a statement Thursday apologizing for past incendiary statement and denying that he ever agreed with a 2004 petition on which his name appears, a petition calling for congressional hearings and an investigation by the New York Attorney General into “evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur.”
Van Jones, the Special Advisor for Green Jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality, is Number 46 of the petitioners from the so-called “Truther” movement which suggests that people in the administration of President George W. Bush “may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war.”
In a statement issued Thursday evening Jones said of “the petition that was circulated today, I do not agree with this statement and it certainly does not reflect my views now or ever.”
He did not explain how his name came to be on the petition.
“My work at the Council on Environmental Quality is entirely focused on one goal: building clean energy incentives which create 21st century jobs that improve energy efficiency and use renewable resources,” Jones said in his statement tonight.
Jones also said in his statement that “In recent days some in the news media have reported on past statements I made before I joined the administration – some of which were made years ago. If I have offended anyone with statements I made in the past, I apologize.”
UPDATE: The members of the “FOX News All Star” panel on Special Report all predicted tonight that Van Jones will be gone by Monday after the Truther news from today:
Thanks to panelist Stephen Hayes for mentioning Gateway Pundit.
