Green Jobs czar signed 9/11 'truther' petition

Green Jobs Czar Van Jones appears to have signed a 9/11 "truther" petition suggesting the government "deliberately allowed" the terrorist attacks.

The Washington Independent's Dave Weigel tweeted a link to this petition on 911truth.org. Among the signatories is Jones, who was then the director of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights. The group confirmed to the Washington Times that it's indeed the same Van Jones.

The petition "call[s] for immediate inquiry into evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur."

Jones has been taking a lot of heat from the right for once being a communist and "rowdy black nationalist," in his own words.

Yesterday, a video surfaced of Jones calling Republicans "a**holes." (Though in fairness, he called himself an a**hole as well.)
