Minor Note: Jones' claim that he hadn't signed 9/11 conspiracy letter disputed

Fox News has this:

faced down his past again when it was discovered that he signed a 2004 statement calling on then-New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer and others to launch an investigation into evidence that suggests "people within the current administration may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war."

Jones afterward issued a blanket apology for his past statements and said the petition does not reflect his views. An aide said Jones didn't carefully review the petition at the time.

But that claim was swiftly disputed by 911Truth.org. "He did agree with that statement and he did sign on to it," 911Truth.org spokesman Mike Berger told FOX News in a telephone interview from St. Louis on Friday. Berger said the group's "original board members individually confirmed all signatories that had signed on to the statement." . . .

Some apologists for Jones are trying to make it sound like it was on a clipboard shoved at him as he exited the local Piggly Wiggly.

Other apologists portray him as a highly educated individual...who should know better than to sign anything shoved at him in front of the Piggly Wiggly without reading it first!
