Van Jones: America deserved 9/11

Powerline reports that Van Jones, who resigned as President Obama’s green czar, blamed United States military actions for provoking the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks — immediately after the catastrophe.   The extreme-leftist site IndyBay.com reported on a rally in Oakland, California on September 12, 2001:

Hundreds of people gathered at Snow Park in Oakland tonight to mourn, provide support for each other, and speak out against violent United States policies at home and abroad, which they say are the underlying reasons for unprecedented terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington DC….

The bombs the government drops in Iraq are the bombs that blew up in New York City,” said Van Jones, director of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, who also warned against forthcoming violence by the Bush Administration.  “The US cannot bomb its way out of this one.  Safety at home requires justice abroad.”

Newsbusters noted “Keep in mind that Jones had to be referring to either the first Gulf War or no-fly-zone incidents, as the war to remove Saddam Hussein did not begin until 2003.
