“We have to remember the history of African-American leaders being killed in this country,” said Van Jones, formerly the Obama administration’s green jobs czar, discussing Secret Service incompetence on ABC’s This Week.

Jones was responding to comments by Missouri congressman Emanuel Cleaver, reported in Friday’s New York Times: “ ‘Well, the Secret Service, they’re trying to expose the president.’ You hear a lot of that from African-Americans in particular.”
