Axe for Van Jones?

Someone ready the chopping block: It appears the White House is preparing to fire Van Jones, the green-job czar who is under fire for having signed a 9/11 truther petition in 2002. Robert Gibbs refused to say at a press conference Friday that Van Jones enjoys “the confidence of the president,” saying only that “he continues to work in this administration.” News surfaced this morning that suggests Jones was on the organizing committee of a 2002 march that made similar claims to that of the 9/11 truthers, who believe that President Bush may have deliberately taken down the Twin Towers in order to justify war in the Middle East.
