Van Jones' Latest Apology Doesn't Ring True

Van Jones, Obama's Green Jobs Czar, has issued two apologies in as many days, first for calling Republicans "***holes", and then for signing a Truther statement that suggested the Bush administration was complicit in the 9/11 attacks. He's also a former communist, having joined the movement in the 90's while communism was collapsing around the world. Not the brightest bulb in the chandelier.

His excuse that he didn't read the 9/11 Truther document carefully is not holding up:
President Obama’s “green jobs czar” Van Jones has been targeted again and again by conservatives for his controversial views and now they’ll have another item to use as fodder.

Mr. Jones signed a statement for 911Truth.org 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 911Truth.org 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.

Mike Berger, a spokesman for 911Truth.org, told the Washington Times over the phone that all of the signers had been verified by their group. He said 9/11Truth.org board members “spoke with each person on the list by phone or through email to individually confirm they had added their name to that list.

Jones has been caught in a lie, but that's nothing new for Obama administration figures. He's an embarrassment to Obama and the Democrats, but will likely keep his job since Obama long ago lost his ability to be embarrassed by his friends and associates. After awhile crazy starts to look normal, and Obama is surrounded by crazy.

yes, it sure does not ring true, since at first he said he did not sign it, now he just signed it by mistake. Next, his dog ate his homework.

Hey Soul Brother has just bought the farm. Now maybe the stupid people that bought Obama's promises hook, line, and sinker will see what this white house is all about.....but don't hold your breath.

I am not surprised that he denied it. Why wouldn't he read something he signed?
