Van Jones: A 9/11 "Truther" Blessed By Obama

Those of you who voted for Barack Obama: Do you believe us yet?

When we voiced concerns about Barack Obama spending 20 years under a racist pastor who was his acknowledged spiritual advisor you thought is was just guilt by association. When we harangued about his friendship with unrepentant terrorist William Ayers you thought is was just guilt by association. When we were outraged by his praise the anti-Semitic terrorist Rashid Khalid you thought is was just guilt by association. When we identified the illegal and immoral practices of his favored affiliate ACORN you thought is was just guilt by association.

Well, do you believe us yet?

Now we are beginning to see that these were not simply associations, they are his people. They are the people he trusts. And now he is placing radicals who reflect his bizarre world view in positions of power.

Obama has appointed too many radical wackoes to list, but I'll try. Well, not here and now, you may never come back for more. But rest assured, like some of my Internet friends I will continue the public service of revelation that the main stream media seems to have forgotten is their responsibility.

The latest Obama nut to crack is Van Jones of "Republicans are Assholes" fame. Yesterday the news broke that Obama's Green Jobs Czar was part of the "9/11 Truther movement" that essentially blamed George Bush for 9/11. As a document Jones signed back in 2004 claims:
The media and Congress have failed to question the most basic White House' statements concerning the events of September 11th and the Bush administration's response . . . We haveto hold the U.S. government accountable for its role in creating terrorists and using terrorism against other countries.

The delegation will demand that these questions (and others) be raised and answered publicly- Who created, trained and funded the Al Qaeda Network? What is the relationship between Bin Laden, his family and the Bush family and the Carlyle Group? Why were no fighter planes dispatched to intercept the four hijacked planes on September 11h , in violation of standard procedures? Who actually was in control of the "hijacked planes"?
Can you say, "loon"?
 
And yet this is the type of intellectual insight that Barack Obama has given a home in his administration. And you thought associations didn't matter? Well, they certainly do when those associations a placed in positions of power. 
 
What's even more amazing is how the mainstream media ignores the troubling facts about Obama's appointments until the blogosphere erupts and they are force to pass off a small acknowledgment (Section E, Page 7, right below the note about the opening hours changing for the local flea market).
 
Scott Whitlock reports:
From a Nexis search a few moments ago:
Total words about the Van Jones controversy in the New York Times: 0.
Total words about the Van Jones controversy in the Washington Post: 0.
Total words about the Van Jones controversy on NBC Nightly News: 0.
Total words about the Van Jones controversy on ABC World News: 0.
Total words about the Van Jones controversy on CBS Evening News: 0.

If you were to receive all your news from any one of these outlets, or even all of them together, and you heard about some sort of controversy involving President Obama's Special Adviser for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, your response would be, "Huh?" If you heard that that adviser, Van Jones, had apologized for a number of remarks and positions in the recent past, your response would be, "What?"
The pen may be mightier than the sword, but when it comes to defending their oddly blind allegiance to a radical president with radical friends pushing a radical agenda it seems our current media are satisfied keeping the truth sheathed.
