Van Jones, an administration official specializing in environmentally friendly "green jobs," issued a statement of apology on Thursday. When asked on Friday whether President Barack Obama still had confidence in him, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said only that Jones "continues to work in the administration."
Gibbs then referred to Jones' own statement.In other words he still works there for the time being but maybe not much longer. The White House should not be painted with the Truther brush in any way shape or form. Since "9/11 deniers" are fringe nut jobs that actually besmirch the office of the president.
