Bad medicine II: a house divided

9/11 truth is not welcome at the Obama White House. Gets in the way of health care reform.

Obama sent a very clear message: not interested in past treason.

White House adviser David Axelrod said Van Jones wasn't forced to resign after traitorous elements of the press made an issue of his signing of a 2004 petition calling for an invetsigation of the circumstances of 9/11, with the suspicion that an "inside job" had occurred. Van Jones, an environmental jobs adviser, simply didn't want to be an object of controversy, helping to cloud the health care debate.

Yes, but Obama did not step in and publicly support Jones for having a right to free speech and who was reflecting the thoughts of at least one third of the American public (as of a 2006 poll). Also, many in 2004 it was clear that many reporters were skeptical of the Bush bunch concerning 9/11.

The 9/11 commission was appointed in response to enormous public suspicion. A perverse panel was eventually appointed whereby the Bush bunch and the Clinton bunch agreed to a sham probe in exchange for not lifting each others skirts.

But, maybe Obama will yet see the light, as he did on the U.S. missile shield planned against Iran. Finally, it seems, he realized that the whole thing was basically a multi-billion hoax. See the old Ted Postol criticisms.

Maybe. But I won't hold my breath.
