Remember that 9/11 Truther document that played a major role in forcing former Green Jobs Czar out of his position? Well, now it's been learned that a close associate of the Ground Zero mosque Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf signed the document as well. Faiz Khan, co-founder with Rauf, of the American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA) is currently signatory #52 on the document.

I say "currently" because Van Jones' signature was removed from the document at his request when it became a source of Beck-generated mega controversy. Via the 9/11 Truth website:
Update 9/11/2009: Signatories removed.
Posted by Janice Matthews, current Director,
Following recent media-generated controversy over Obama appointee Van Jones' signature on this Statement, he and two other signatories have requested their names be removed. That has been done.
Steve Emerson's Investigative Project on Terrorism uncovered the relationship between Rauf and Khan, which invariably opened the door to this discovery. The opening paragraph of the 9/11 Truth website:
NEW YORK CITY, NY (Oct. 26, 2004)(Updated Sep. 11, 2009) - An alliance of 100 prominent Americans and 40 family members of those killed on 9/11 today announced the release of the 911 Truth Statement, a call for immediate inquiry into evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur. The Statement supports an August 31st Zogby poll that found nearly 50% of New Yorkers believe the government had foreknowledge and "consciously failed to act," with 66% wanting a new 9/11 investigation.
In addition to co-founding the ASMA with Rauf, Khan also led prayers at Rauf's mosque.

This guy just needs to keep on talking. Ground Zero mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, while speaking at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), is now attempting to tell New Yorkers (and Americans) that the mosque he wants to build two blocks away from ground zero is NOT hallowed ground. Why? In an earlier interview with Soledad O'Brien on September 8th, he stated that because there were no human remains on the site, it shouldn't qualify.

Via the New York Post:
"This is not Ground Zero proper. No one's body is in that location," said Rauf. "You can't say a place that has strip joints is sacred ground."
CLICK HERE for the video of Rauf saying his mosque wouldn't be built on hallowed ground if built on the proposed location.

For some perspective, here is a map of where human remains were found. So much for "building bridges", hey Rauf?

This is potentially very big news; then again, how often is that said these days? Nonetheless, it is nice to see people in positions of authority take on the establishment after being subjected to repeated stonewalling. Michelle Malkin has posted a letter written by Justice Department Inspector General Glenn Fine, addressed to Reps. Lamar Smith (R-TX) and Frank Wolf (R-VA). In that letter, Fine explains that the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) does not have jurisdiction over how the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case was litigated - he explains that distinction belongs to the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR).

To this point, the OPR has been apparently led by a bunch of foot-draggers. The good news is that Fine has decided to assert his office's authority by investigating how the Voting RIghts section of the Civil RIghts division within the DOJ enforced the laws. This would be a huge turn of events because it's at the heart of the argument of J. Christian Adams, the trial attorney who resigned over this.

Via Michelle Malkin: Here is Part 1 of the letter; click on the image to enlarge.

To read pages two and three of the letter, go to Malkin's site. More here.

As we all know, the Obama administration has demonstrated outright contempt for Inspectors General; Gerald Walpin comes to mind first but as Malkin reminds us, there are many other examples.

Another interesting angle to this story may involve the not-so-subtle hint from J. Christian Adams in an interview with Megyn Kelly at Fox News earlier this year, that Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Civil RIghts division, Thomas Perez may have given provably false testimony - under oath - to the U.S. commission on civil rights. Making that web even more tangled is that Perez is the man leading the lawsuit against Maricopa county sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona.

As this OIG investigation unfolds, it will be interesting to see if reports that the voting rights section was informed by Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes never to bring a case against a black, are substantiated. If that's found to be the case, great political damage could reach Perez.
