Glenn Beck has been very hard on 9-11 truthers the past couple of days. He's been beating up on one person in particular, who, as it turns out, isn't actually a truther -- Van Jones.

On Wednesday, Beck said this:

BECK: They may not know the last one, you know, because they didn't know Van Jones was a 9/11 truther, you know? I mean, should we expect the White House to distance himself from Lerner since, you know, he's plotting economic terrorism? I don't know. Maybe we should tell him he's a 9/11 truther.
