Van Jones and Truthers Are Mainstream Democrats

The internet is abuzz today with news that Glenn Beck foe and Obama administration Green Czar Van Jones is a 9/11 Truther, meaning he thinks the Bush administration either planned or at least knew of the 9/11 attacks in advance.

Jones will end up resigning, and Glenn Beck will crow.

But let's not lose sight of the fact that as recently as May 2007, 35% of Democrats were 9/11 Truthers and another 26% were "not sure":

Democrats in America are evenly divided on the question of whether George W. Bush knew about the 9/11 terrorist attacks in advance. Thirty-five percent (35%) of Democrats believe he did know, 39% say he did not know, and 26% are not sure.
I have quoted the poll findings, so don't try to spin it otherwise.

  1. Time and time and time again we have to repeat the cliche: you can have your own opinion, but you can't have your own facts. Repeating the instruction makes no change in transgressor behavior, but isn't there another cliche about repeating the same act while expecting a different result?

  2. A savvy person would have been aware of the potential threat that existed ever since the first attempt to bomb the WTC. The fact that it failed meant that there would very likely be another attack.

    A savvy non-USA citizen would realize that there are other countries that saw the USA as an enemy and that an attack was likely.... but that does not mean that the same savvy person would have expected the attack that took place on September 11..

    The fact is, on that date (my time) and not long before the attack took place, I was at a meeting where a question was raised mostly about the manner in which some USA people evangelize in other countries, and general attitudes over a multitude of things (e.g. the attitude of one Hillary Clinton that she could dictate to Indian women on the matter of abortion and contraceptives)... and at that meeting I made a remark about declaring war on the USA as a result of the perceived attitude..... I did not expect to wake up the next morning to a news service that sounded like war of the worlds, or to the knowledge that my sons had watched the attack on TV the previous night and they had video-taped the footage.....

    No one was really aware that the attack was about to take place. If anyone did know then it was the CIA and the other spies who listen in to see what is happening. If they failed to report on those signals.... then of course there is the matter of these pilots being trained in Florida... why was it that the airline business that taught them to fly was not suspicious about those responsible for the attack?

    I cannot see how the President would have known. He had overseas dignitaries visiting at the time (John Howard - Australian Prime Minister was in D.C. at the time of the attack) and he would have been culpable if anything happened to a leader of another country.... Also, if the Pentagon knew of the pending attack via the spy network, they would have made sure that the people within the building had fled to safety....

    That is the trouble with the Truthers.... they have no flippin idea......

  3. Have you seen this??? Lovely. Just freaking lovely.

  4. Three great links that completely refute the 9/11 truthers' conspiracy theories:


  5. How could President Stupidly have chosen Jones and not known/agreed with the man's obvious views? This means our current president likely thinks his predecessor is guilty of wholesale slaughter of people on American soil. If not, why doesn't he repudiate Jones? Unfortunately the question answers itself.
