That's right. Despite actually being one of the top members of the federal government, Van Jones is convinced that the government was responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Van Jones was one of one of "100 prominent signatories" of a statement put out by 911truth.org, which called "for immediate inquiry into evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur."
At the time, Jones was at the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, and has not made a statement regarding this position since the news was put out by Gateway Pundit.
