Fox News Legal Analyst Andrew Napolitano A 9/11 Truther?
Fox News/Fox Business legal analyst Andrew Napolitano, a former state court Judge in New Jersey, made comments recently that seem to indicate he doesn’t buy the “official story” of the September 11th attacks.
First of all, anyone who appears on Alex Jones’s radio show is suspect to begin with. Jones is a well-known 9/11 truther.
Second, well, just listen for yourself starting around the 4:00 mark:
Napolitano was a guy I actually had some respect for, at least before these idiotic comments.
This is the kind of people Fox is hiring these days.

UPDATE (James Joyner): Here’s a transcript of the relevant portion of the conversation, courtesy Media Matters:
JONES: OK finally, man because I’ve never raised this with you, because it’s a subject I just leave alone with folks because I don’t want to cause people problems. But you brought it up with Geraldo Rivera, who says he is concerned about building 7, and I want to put the question you put to him to you. I mean, what do you think of Geraldo Rivera coming out — what do you think of 7?
NAPOLITANO: It’s hard for me to believe that it came down by itself. I was gratified to see Geraldo Rivera investigating it. 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.
JONES: Well, I want to tell you this. You’ve got a lot of courage, Judge, and so does Geraldo Rivera. I don’t agree with him on some of his more liberal political views, but I do resonate with his courage, and I resonate with yours, and I already had the highest respect for you, but now the thermometer just broke. And the mercury — geysering out of it right now. Judge, you are a great American, and I just can’t wait till your show is number one on Fox Business, when you’re on regular Fox full time, because no army can stop an idea whose time has come.
