Tony Bennett ‘We Caused 9/11′

Legendary crooner Tony Bennett, 85, appeared on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM show on Monday night to promote his upcoming release “Duets II.” The conversation took a bizarre turn after Stern asked Bennett, a veteran of World War II, how the United States should deal with the terrorists who were responsible for destroying the World Trade Center.

Bennett: ”Are we the terrorists or are they the terrorists? Two wrongs don’t make a right.”

Stern: They are the ones who started it — flying that plane into the World Trade Center. What do you do?

Bennett: I don’t know about that.

Stern: Are you one of those conspiracy guys who actually thinks they didn’t fly the plane…that the government started it?

Bennett: They flew the plane in but we caused it.

Stern: Why?

Bennett: Because we were bombing them and they told us to stop.

Bennett then went on to describe an encounter with President George W. Bush at the Kennedy Center in 2005 where Bennett was being honored. Regarding the war in Iraq, “He told me personally that night that, he said, ‘I think I made a mistake,’” said Bennett.

Bennett told Stern he believed that the president made the revelation because “he had a special liking to me.”

Late Tuesday afternoon, Bennett released a statement saying “I am sorry if my statements suggested anything other than an expression of my love for my country, my hope for humanity, and my desire for peace throughout the world.”

  1. Victory is victory and it is not 2005, it is almost 2013, to see that depressing stuff across my desk everyday, 2005 and stay sober and sane. 5 years Iraq, 5 year the Stan see you in Africa, I will skin ya. I would never send that to the President, I would not lie, if I cant deliver I would liquidate myself with my side arm. Results, that is what I send. We can;t win, why are you breathing then. I will win that the the Stan and will see them in North Africa. Can’t win. What that’s , I remember 05, darkest days. and the Iran has not got the bomb.
