Glenn Beck's Coworker, Andrew Napolitano, A 9/11 Truther

Glenn Beck wrote the following about September 11th "Trutherism" and why Van Jones should be fired back in September 2009:
I've been talking about Van Jones, a special adviser to the president, because he's got the president's ear and he's an admitted communist; a radical who wants to fundamentally change America.

On Thursday we learned Jones is also a 9/11 Truther.

If you don't know what a 9/11 Truther is, let me quickly tell you about them. Here's a statement from a 9/11 Truther group; after the attacks they demanded: "A call for immediate inquiry into evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur."

They also have a list of questions on their site that, I guess, is supposed to peak your interest in the conspiracy theory that the Bush administration let the attacks happen on purpose.

I too had a lot of questions shortly after 9/11, but none of them had anything to do with the "alleged" Flight 77 that "allegedly" blew up at the Pentagon. Nor was I asking if steel can melt or anything like that...

If you believed our own government was responsible for the 9/11 attacks, right there on the 9/11 Truther statement, you could proudly sign your name along with such luminaries as:

No. 2: Ed Asner, actor, activist

No. 31: Janeane Garofalo, actress, comedienne, talk show host, Air America radio

No. 51: Mimi Kennedy, actress, "Dharma and Greg," progressive activist

No. 62: Cynthia McKinney, five-term congresswoman from Georgia

And coming in at No. 46: Van Jones, executive director, Ella Baker Center for Human Rights

So on top of all the radical, progressive and communist nonsense coming from Obama's green jobs "czar" Van Jones, you can now add "thinks the Bush administration blew up the World Trade Centers and covered it up."

Do you know what people are saying about me on the Internet — that I'm a conspiracy theorist? If you actually believed this stuff — forget green jobs — wouldn't you want to find out who was trying to kill innocent Americans? Wouldn't that be a top priority?
I'll ask the question again: Did President Obama know about all of this before appointing Van Jones (and other radical advisers and czars)?

As of now the White House has been silent on this. As soon as they respond, we will bring that to you.
Why is this interesting a year later?

Glenn Beck's coworker, Andrew Napolitano, is a "truther." 

On Tuesday, Napolitano told 9/11 conspiracy theorist Alex Jones that the attacks "couldn't possibly have been done the way the government told us."

In response to Jones asking Napolitano on his opinions of the collapse of Building 7, Napolitano said the following:
"It's hard for me to believe that it came down by itself...I am gratified to see that people across the board are interested. I think twenty years from now, people will look at 9-11 the way we look at the assassination of JFK today. It couldn't possibly have been done the way the government told us."
As Ben Armbruster pointed out for Think Progress, Beck's thoughts on Napolitano are relevant because Beck hosted the judge on his radio program yesterday.

So Glenn Beck - will you call for the immediate resignation of Andrew Napolitano?
