Tony Bennett On 9/11: “They Flew The Plane In, But We Caused It”

In an interview with Howard Stern, legendary singer Tony Bennett disagrees as to the premise for the 9/11 attacks. Although it appears that he takes a bit of the "Ron Paul" approach to 9/11 in that it was blow back, one wouldn't know that from the headline offered. Sadly, Mr. Bennett was already being raked over the coals by the Fox News morning shills which will undoubtedly be parroted throughout the day. The comments weren't very supportive either. I tried to posting some support for Mr. Bennett but I doubt my injection of truth will get past the 9/11 comment police. Worth a try, no registration required.

The legendary Tony Bennett appeared on Howard Stern’s radio show and talked about his antipathy to war, borne out of having served in WWII.
“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.”

Tony Bennett, legendary crooner, delivers rant about 9/11 on Howard Stern show: 'We caused' it

Thank You, Tony Bennett. Thank God for Tony Bennett. He spoke the truth on Howard Stern and now the forces of hate are after him.

"We Caused It."

In Bennet's words, "we caused it" because "we bombed them and they told us to stop." No Tony, we caused it, because "we" used gps controlled planes, and building demolition tools to create the appearance of a massive terrorist attack, so that we could then bomb "them" into the stone ages and capture their oil.

If people are going to be upset with Tony, it should be because his words will be used to further obfuscate and distort the truth of what occurred that day. Indeed if we are to be upset, we should all be upset that this country still refuses to conduct a real investigation into the truth of what happened on September 11.

It still saddens me when I reflect on the fact that this country could possibly be responsible for such a horrific act; and that "we the people" would stand by and do nothing.

God bless (and help) America

Someone should tell Tony

Someone should tell Tony he'll be flamed just as much for the limited hold out 'blow back' as he would if he just came straight out & said it was an inside job. You're done for now,Tony,may as well go all the way so,at least, you can look God straight in the face & tell him you tried come judgment day.

A conversation with Tony.

"Sir, you know how some men use wigs to cover their baldness and project the illusion of hair?

Tony : What's your point?

We'll there's this method of subterfuge called a false flag attack and that's what September 11th was. By the way I'm a huge fan.

Tony : Thank you.

I agree waitew

Tony Bennett should have come right out and said that 9/11 was an inside job. He knows, they all do.

Of course . . .

People: Singer Tony Bennett apologizes for 9/11 remarks

Singer Tony Bennett, known more for his velvety voice and gentlemanly demeanor than as a creator of controversy, has issued an apology for recent remarks he made about 9/11.

Bennett previously told radio host Howard Stern, "they flew the plane in, but we caused it, because we were bombing them and they told us to stop." During the same appearance, Bennett also said that in 2005, President George W. Bush told him, "I think I made a mistake" in going to war against Iraq.

Bennett apologized for the 9/11 remarks in a statement obtained Wednesday by Newsday.

"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," Bennett said in the statement. "My life experiences -- ranging from the Battle of the Bulge to marching with Martin Luther King -- made me a lifelong 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."

Bennett did not refer to the Bush/Iraq War comments in his statement. The New York Daily News quoted a Bush spokesman as saying Bennett's account the 2005 conversation with the president was "flatly wrong."
