Tony Bennett has made a statement regarding his comments on 9/11 during the Howard Stern Show.

Tony stated:

I am so grateful to be an American and as a World War II veteran, I was proud to fight to protect our values, which have made America the greatest country on the planet.

There is simply no excuse for terrorism and the murder of the nearly 3,000 innocent victims of the 9/11 attacks on our country.

My life experiences – ranging from the Battle of the Bulge to marching with Martin Luther King – made me a life-long humanist and pacifist, and reinforced my belief that violence begets violence and that war is the lowest form of human behavior.

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.

We really feel that Tony was just speaking his mind and was talking off the cuff.   It is obvious that Tony felt remorse for what he said feeling it offended people.

What do you think?-DocFB

    As a matter of fact Bennett doesn’t really apologize for his dumb accusation that the US responsible for the bad behave of 911’s Muslims. Extremist Islamic world is anti Western world by its own definition and the Muslims don’t need additional reasons to wage their terror. It has nothing to do with US or Europe politics (Muslims blew 7/7 train station in London while the British government is much pro-Islamic at the extreme sense of being good). Islamist agents acts according to self command orders as written in Koran and Hadith and interpretate by their Mullahs and clerics. They have laws of behave in “Dahr el-Islam” (regions that controlled by Muslims or once in the History were controlled – Spain and Yugoslavia for example), and “Dahr el-Harb (the other portion of the globe – region of War – that Muslims intend to conquer and to Islamize the Non-Muslims in order to gain control of the whole world under the wing of their Allah and their prophet Mohammad. All this belief doesn’t dependent on what the Americans think or do. Stop blaming yourselves or the Jews for other faults, it won’t help you neither protect you from further extreme Islamic aggression!

    Tony shouldnt apologize, he spoke his mind and he has the right as an american to do so, the terrorists are the ones who supply the money, control it, make and sell weapons, fortunately people are learning that an elite few are profiting from the public god forbid the international bankers happen to be jewish, thats not antisemitic, nobody said the the jewish people, there run by the elite jews like the rest of us.. God bless you Tony you only offended the guilty.. like Rothchilds and their inner circle, Clinton knows they set him up nicely and Silverstein made 7 Billion when the towers went down, good luck America, I thought freedom to speak your mind was in the constitution!

    From the general response to Mr. Bennet’s remarks, clearly American’s are entirely unaware of U.S. Foreign policy in the Middle East, and thus the “blow-back” 9/11 was. Besides what we’ve done to them, it’s not surprising American’s could never grasp that Arab’s are smart enough to have heard of U.S. military interventions in Central and South America, the Caribbean, Africa, and South east Asia, and connected the dots there as well. Mr. Bennet has nothing to apologize for. Asking the question, “who are the terrorists” was entirely legitimate. He shouldn’t run from this. This is important.
