Tony Bennett Blames America for 9-11

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: On Monday September 19th, music legend Tony Bennett visited the Howard Stern Show on Sirius Radio to promote his new album, "Duets II." The 85-year-old singer talked about his service in World War II, stating that his experiences as a teenager in combat forever changed his position on war. "I'm anti-war," he said. "It's the lowest form of human behavior." Bennett credited the Army with allowing him to study singing under the GI Bill, but went on to say, "The first time I saw a dead German, that's when I became a pacifist," he said. "To start a war in Iraq was a tremendous, tremendous mistake internationally," he said. Stern then asked Bennett about how America should deal with terrorists, specifically those responsible for the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center. "But who are the terrorists? Are we the terrorists or are they the terrorists? Two wrongs don't make a right," Bennett said. In a soft-spoken voice, the singer disagreed with Stern's premise that 9/11 terrorists' actions led to U.S. military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. "They flew the plane in, but we caused it," Bennett responded. "Because we were bombing them and they told us to stop." So what do you think? Is Tony Bennet right about the U.S. being partly responsible for the attacks of 9-11? Leave a comment below and let us know.
