So I was up too late, and ran across the story that Van Jones has resigned as White House "green jobs czar', over allegations that he had been a communist, had signed a petition calling for investigation of the Bush Administration for knowingly permitting the terrorist attacks of Sept 11, 2001, and had descriped the Republican Party using a vulgar term (Admittedly, he also applied the term to thimself, but not to Obama... obviously, his usage is a trifle inconsistent)


Wkipedia says more:

In 2004, Jones was one of "100 notable Americans" who signed a "911 Truth Statement" from The statement called "for immediate public attention to unanswered questions that suggest that people within the current administration may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war."

On September 3, 2009, Jones issued a statement regarding the "incendiary" petition stating, "I do not agree with this statement and it certainly does not reflect my views now or ever." A White House official said that Jones did not review the document carefully before signing it.


A commenter on Jay Bookman's blog came up with this gem, however.  Two years before this petition, in 2002,  Van Jones had been helping organizing a march to bring these same allegations  to California Senator Diane Feinstein's attention.


Really, Mr. Jones? Not Ever?


"On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me," Jones said in his resignation statement. "They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide."



Sure. And Obama is bringing about a new era of peace and healing and end to racial division and political strife, too.
