Tony Bennett Apologizes Again For 9/11 Remarks

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Tony Bennett has again addressed his controversial remarks made to Howard Stern regarding 9/11 attacks on America.

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.

“They flew the plane in but we caused it,” Bennett said. “Because we were bombing them and they told us to stop.” He also asked Stern, “Are we the terrorists or are they the terrorists? Two wrongs don’t make a right.”

Bennett apologized for his remarks on his Facebook page.

Appearing on ABC’s “The View,” Bennett was asked about his comments. He produced a card and read from it.

“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,” the singer said, echoing his statement on Facebook.

“Nobody loves America more than I do,” Bennett said, reading from the card.

On his Facebook page, Bennett wrote “My life experience… 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.”

That said, not everyone is pleased with the apology. On his Facebook page, some were critical.

“My brother died in one of those buildings, and frankly you are so off base in your views of who the terrorists are, I now question your patriotism,” wrote Ron Bogdan of Lawrenceville, New Jersey.

“Nice statement by your publicist, however, we heard you loud and clear on the Stern program,” wrote Brian Eades of Omaha, Neb. “You clearly equate U.S. actions with those of the terrorists and said the U.S. somehow caused 9/11. The 3,000 people that died that day were innocent people. They were murdered in cold blood. Nothing – no matter what you can point to in U.S. policy over the years – justifies what was done or somehow mitigates the tragedy.”

What do you think of Tony Bennett’s comments and apology? Sound off below.

    I saw Steve Earle at a concert once and he began going on and on about capital punishment. Someone in the crowd yelled, “Play the damn songs!”. Mr. Earle was not pleased but…he played the damned songs for the rest of the night. Might be a good lesson for Mr. Bennett.

  2. Lupo1234 says:

    Tony’s remarks were very foolish, Ignorant and dangerous. We are not all terrorists; the radical Muslims that supported the murder of 3000 innocent Americans on 911 (and the Palestinians that were celebrating it and dancing in the streets…less we forget) are! Do not think for a second that these very same Muslim terrorists wouldn’t hesitate to cut Tony Bennet’s throat or any of the throats of you foolish, blind, brainwashed liberals seeped in the propaganda of moral relativism and social justice.
    “The first time I saw a dead German, that’s when I became a pacifist,” he said. – Too bad Tony didn’t see some of slaughtered Jews, Gypsies and Gays in the concentration camps or a bombed out, enslaved, NAZI dominated Europe while he was over there picking daisies. By the way Tony; Eichmann was one of those NAZIS, not the people that were murdered in the Trade Towers on 911. Thank God we were victorious in WWII and destroyed the evil NAZI empire’s ambition of total world domination. Hmmm… couldn’t draw any parallels to radical Islam’s anti- Jew/Christian world caliphate ambitions now, could we?
    It is quite obvious that Tony cannot recognize evil, even when he looks it in the face.
    Tony should stick to singing instead of ending his career like the Dixie Chicks. Put foot in mouth and lose half your fan base.

    1. Doug says:

      Just a question, but , did YOU see slaughtered Jews, Gypsies and Gays in the concentration camps ? or was that just for impact? I personally think that Tony should do what he feels is right, even if you don’t like it ……free country they say

      1. Lunatic Detector says:

        Yo Doug, are you implying that the Holocaust didn’t happen? Is it possible for you to be that whacked-out?
        Lay off the Crack and find a new hobby Doug.

    2. Btruth says:

      You are complacently ignorant of real history. That is unless your another government troll. All government and authority are puppets because they are corrupt. Whom ever controls the nations money, controls the nation. Go back to sleep and enjoy the FEMA camp!

    3. Ray c. says:

      Well done Lupo. You nailed it.
      Tony Bennett sounds as foolish as Jimmy Carter and Barry Soetoro combined.
      We can thank people like this for the conceited usurper now putting his feet on our desk in the White House.

  3. Leigh says:

    On 9/11, thousands of innocent men,women, and children were murdered by fanatical ideologues and, according to TB, that was perfectly understandable as America deserved it. A little girl, clutching a doll, on her way to Disneyland with her parents, dying in the conflagration of a trade center tower – what a heartless man TB is – these are individuals, not ciphers to blame for his bizarre politics. Never again will I look upon Bennett with admiration.

  4. Leslie Allen says:

    Tony Bennett has joined Barbra Streisand as my FORMER, favorite singers. Selling music is not an indicator of people agreeing with your political views. SHUT UP AND SING.

    1. Doug says:

      Typical American statement “shut up and sing”
      do you see the idiocy of this?
      Reminds me of “Nobody move, get on the floor”

      1. Buck O'Fama says:

        Typical eurotard statement. Shut up and surrender. Oh sorry, too laite. Well go serve your master….slave.

        1. Doug says:

          Hope you didn’t work too hard on the clever reply … not very lucid

      2. Leslie Allen says:

        Doug, entertainers often think that selling music or making movies is their door to believing people “like: them”. I ised to like both Tony Bennett AND Barbra Streisand. Now, I see that funding them by buying their BULLSHIT is a WASTE of my money. As I said, I liked Tony Bennett for his musical talents. Now…well, he really turns me off.

        1. Doug says:

          So you only buy from those that are in lockstep with your ideas? … do you buy gas? too bad we can’t use that premise when we pay taxes.

  5. Maggie says:

    Of course he apoligized. He wanats to sell his new release “Duets”

  6. Kat says:

    Wow! I thought he was dead!

    1. Leigh says:

      He might as well be now.

  7. Leslie Allen says:

    I just crossed his new CD off my list of things to buy

  8. JeromeFJ says:

    Not a pacifist…not a humanist…just an idiot. Bennett is entitled to his own opinions, of course…we all are. But he is not entitled to his own facts, and his take on the IslamoNazis is factually incorrect and just liberalism at it’s most juvenile.

  9. Doug says:

    Reading all these comments that attack Tony for exercising his freedom of speech points out exactly what is wrong in this country and why so many people around the world hate us. I too would like to honor those who died on 9/11 by punishing the guilty…. but first, we all need to know WHO the guilty really are!
    Suggestion: turn off the TV, do some research, become enlightened.
    I will not state who I think is the guilty here, too many people have already shown they are too closed minded to listen anyway.

    1. Leigh says:

      Oh, really – and you’re completely open-minded, of course – lol

    2. Bob says:

      I suggest Mr. Bennett — along with so much of the leftist Hollywood crowd — “become enlightened” as well. They are so often so astonishingly ignorant of life in the real world.

      1. Doug says:

        As defined by the mainstream media of course

    3. Ray says:

      Love it or leave Doug.

      Nah,……. just leave.

      You Suck.

  10. Chief49 says:

    Who selected Karen’s comment as a feature?
    Doesn’t seem to be representative.
    Tony’s next concert should be before his friends in Guantanamo.
    When I count floaters and sinkers, I count him twice.

  11. MP says:

    I didn’t know Tony Bennett was still alive… I’m guessing this comment is to help sell his CD, “Replenish My 401K”

  12. Jeff says:

    Mr. Bennett is typical of the Hollywood/Entertainment industry Lib-Tards who don’t know and don’t know that they don’t know!

  13. Terrell A. Robinson says:

    What’s the matter, Tony? Album not selling, so you had to backpeddle? You’ve smoked one joint too many, you has-been. Go sit with the rest of the vacuous celebs telling you how great you still are.

  14. JB says:

    Amazing when I read comments by the ignorant. Does anyone remember pictures of our secretary of defense shaking hands with Saddam Hussein? Does anyone remember the coup’s that the CIA was behind in Central America? The help we gave Iraq to fight Iran? Does anyone know anything about history or just the latest scores of the Giants or some scripted reality show starts. This country is going downhill becuase the people are complete idiots.

    1. Robert B. Mounts says:

      You may be right. Some of them even have trouble spelling ‘because’.

      1. JB says:

        You’re another idiot missing he point entirely. Are you watching MTV now? Can you even hold down a job?

  15. Jeff Burgdorf says:

    Do you think we were attacked for being innocent bystanders? Tony was right, our governmental policies and actions in the Middle East brought this on us all … from our early alliance with Bin Laden himself (yes, we did), to our repeated support of Israel.

    They didn’t attack Mexico afterall, they perceived an injustice that our government has repeatedly headed in their direction, from the first Bush to Clinton lobbing cruise missiles into various countries. How many innocents do you think the US has killed over the last 20 years?

    The goose comes home to roost eventually. Get over it … Tony has his opinion, and this time he was right. Quit believing everything Beck or Rush tells you to believe.

    1. Jeff says:

      We were attacked because we are NON-MUSLIM you fool. Try reading what these murdering low lifes have written and why they want a world wide Jihad! Get you head out of your brain cavity and try thinking without listening to the Daily Kos.

      1. Larry says:

        I think Mexico is NON-MUSLIM too — they did not attack Mexico. The guy has a point.

      2. Booger says:

        Hah… you know there’s a guy in Arabia named Jeff-Ohad #2, and he’s spouting off the same stupidity as you are except about us Americans that he heard Bushahammed say on the radio. We murdered them. They murdered us. In 20 years their kids will murder our kids all again. Based on the same stupidity that Jeff #2 rallies on about here and the seeds our government has planted there.

      3. nationalobserver says:

        Daily Kos????! Wow you really are a puppet.

    2. American. says:

      So your fellow Americans deserved to slaughtered by a group of fanatical zealots eh?. Is that because you hate your country? Having a loser life here are you Jeff? What makes you hate your country, and your countrymen, women and children?
      You Suck.

  16. JK in Joizey says:

    Mr. Bennett, sure America is no perfect country and everything we have done is not perfect. But let me ask you, if we hadn’t done all the things good and bad, what kind of place would we all be living in? Some might be speaking all german, all japanese, or all arabic.

  17. Rick Warde says:

    It is appeasement, not assertiveness, that leads to more violence. The U.S. was far more assertive in their wars against Japan and Germany, even killing thousands of civilians with atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the bombing of Dresden. Did Germany and Japan retaliate against us after that? NO. Why? Because we cut off the head of the snake and humiliated the ideology behind Japanese imperialism and Nazism to the point that many of the Japanese and German people were embarrassed by it. The U.S has adopted a policy of appeasement against militant Islam: they merely cut off its tail, which quickly grows back, our government caringmore about the well-being of muslim civilians than they do about the people in our own military. Until that appeasement ends and we can show that the jihad ideology is a failure, we will always encourage more violence against us .

  18. Martin says:

    I was planning on buying the album he was promoting on the Stern show just to have the duet with Amy Winehouse. After hearing what you said I will never buy anything with you on it and I hope others do the same.

  19. Jimio says:

    Untill I watched the finally on American Idol, I thought Tony was dead. Wonder if he had had family in the twin towers if he would be running his mouth about who caused what. BTW who put this old dud on American Idol anyway? He and Jimmy Carter need to just go away

  20. Cat says:

    Sadly, Mr. Bennet can’t apologize to all the innocent people who were murdered that day by terrorists after questioning whether the victims and all Americans were the actual terrorists.

    Exactly who were we bombing, Tony?

  21. Thomas Jefferson says:

    Tony’s correct. If we didn’t meddle in the Middle East, they wouldn’t have an issue with us. We should follow the guidance of our Founding Father’s and be friendly to all nations, indebted to none (That means you, Israel).

    No more policing the world! It is un-American as definded by the Founders!!!

    1. Chizh&Co says:

      Thomas Jefferson sent American troops to Libyan borders. Moron. Study history (or pick a better handle)

  22. Chizh&Co says:

    John, you need medical and psychiatric help, IMMEDIATELY!

  23. Al says:

    The terrorists took out three — not just two — skyscrapers in NYC and this singer has the nerve to speak out against our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. For the sake of all New Yorkers, I’m glad he’s changed his tune about what happened on 9-11. We took a major hit on 9-11, bigger than most people seem to realize — and we don’t need peaceniks like Tony gumming up the works as we spread freedom overseas and protect ourselves from further harm. Remember the World Trade Center — all three buildings — and never forget what they did to us.

  24. Leslie Allen says:

    Shut up and sing.

    1. Al says:

      You’re right. If he can’t say anything positive or uplifting, he should be quiet. We have enough negativity in this country. I’m glad he felt the pressure to rethink his position and was smart enough to come around to reality.

    2. Leigh says:

      Right – follow the Elvis example.

  25. Ron Reale says:

    So he needs a card to read from to not apologize for the remarks! He is so historically incorrect concerning the muslim attacks on our country SINCE ITS FOUNDING, it is ridiculous.
    His comments were a testament to the ignorance of our citizens and the public school system that does not teach how to actually research the statements one hears, before parroting them.
    A man too ignorant to write an actual apology, or, he actually doesn’t feel he said anything factually incorrect.
    Either way, not worth any more attention, or any money spent on his work.
    Ron Reale

  26. Robert B. Mounts says:

    Let’s see … they hate us because we’re ‘infidels’ (non-Muslims), and because we have supported Israel. And that hatred ’causes’ them to fly airplanes into the Twin Towers. Sorry, it doesn’t wash.

    First, hatred, like Beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. Anyone can hate anyone else for any imagined slight. And second, their attacks on U. S. soil (twice on the Towers) were not likely to make us all convert to Islam, nor to drop our concern for the Jewish people.

    So, in fact, they created a cause for their rancor and set out to achieve effects that by their nature would never solve their ‘problem’.

    If you had asked, “Why did you do it?” And if they were introspective enough to reflect on their own motives, they’d likely have said, “Oh just for the hell of it.”

  27. Elmer Fudd says:

    Tony: Take your apology and shove it up your a–, EF

  28. Jeff Grisier says:

    Tony Bennett………another soft spine celebrity. If you are going to say something , then be man enough to stand behind that statement. What a wimp! I’ll never buy another Tony Bennett album again…..Wait a minute…I’ve never bought one to begin with.

  29. nationalobserver says:

    Tony Bennett is not saying anything new. Our own CIA has a term for it- it’s called BLOWBACK.

    For anyone to think that the U.S. can be the school yard bully and not get some sand kicked in its face is just plain stupid.

    Americans had better wise up and start questioning what exactly our government is doing around the world. The Founding Fathers of our great nation would be spinning in their graves if they knew what atrocities have been carried out at home and abroad under the banner of “national security”.

    Tony Bennett is a TRUE AMERICAN– and those questioning his PATRIOTISM don’t know the meaning of the word.

  30. Joe Blow says:

    Who’s Tony Bennett? I’m new to this planet?

  31. j ryd says:

    since he hated war and ww2 sickened him I wonder if he started practicing his german?
    I still broke the Xmas CD. Sometimes war and conflict are necessary and yes there is good and evil in the world. I wonder how he feels about the the genocidal dictators we have disposed of over the years? Or should we just turn away and pretend it is not happening?

  32. Pitbullll says:

    Tony is entitled to his opinion, as am I. He is a talented old coot who just outed himself to be another unpatriotic, ingrateful Hollywood limousine liberal. Thanks for letting me know, Tony. I have several of your CD’s but from now on you’ll never see another dime of my money.

  33. paul says:

    I left my brain
    in San Francisco……

  34. John says:

    “No need for him to apologize. We all know that the US support for Israel was the main factor in causing 9/11.:

    This is partially correct. Let’s not forget that if it wasn’t for VP Cheney’s standdown of the U.S. Airforce, Marvin Bush (Pres Bush’s brother) ‘overseeing’ security at the WTC, the removal of bomb sniffing dogs a week before 9/11, the disbanding of the Able Danger US Spys who were closing in on the 9/11 attackers and the total disregard for stopping the plane which hit the Pentagon, as VP Cheney knows it is approaching, as evidenced by Minetta, then 9/11 would not have occurred, or would have been much less severe. Hiding Evidence of Enron theft and the missing 2.3 Trillion dollars was imperative. 9/11 had to happen.

    9/11 was an inside job.

    Why just today, we have Obama talking about peace in Israel/Palestine requiring that Palestinians and Israeli’s to sit down and talk.

    Seems dangerous since Israel has a tendency to drop pyrotechnic bombs on Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, Steals land in Jerusalem, and continues to occupy land – for example – 30% of the land beneath Israeli settlements is actually Palestinian owned.

    And during all this, ISRAEL demands that Palestinians recognize Israel.

    The $64,000 Question: Does Israel recognize Palestine’s right to exist, or re-exist, as the case may be?

    Or is State Recognition a one way street?

    I think not.

    I figure the Israeli’s, with the help of the Neocon 5th columni in Washington, will attempt to bring down the Sears tower sometime in the near future and again blame people who can’t even count on a working sewage system as the culprits who will, again, embarrass the U.S. with an attack.

    With friends like Israel, who needs enemies?

    1. John says:

      you give Johns a bad name.

  35. John says:

    I wish Frank Sinatra was alive to kick his ass.

    1. Al says:

      Me too. Then he would sincerely change his mind. I don’t think his apology is from the heart. Frank would teach him a thing or two about not abusing our right to freedom of speech. You can’t yell fire in a crowded theater and Tony should have known better, especially since he served his country in WWII.

      1. John says:

        your sarcasm is not lost on me. he has the freedom to say what he wants. we have a right to punch him in the mouth. i wish 3,000 of your friends or family would die, then someone make light of it. you would want to punch them in the mouth too…but they have a right to say it. get it?

    2. JeromeFJ says:

      And he would, too.

  36. jc says:

    You said Tony “we caused it” in your ridiculous statement on Stern’s show. The fact that your a pacifist is fine, and you served this country – I honor that. But I do not honor what you said, and that statement (really the belief that statement expresses) negates your sacrifice. I cannot honor anyone who says something so ridiculous – no matter how they served this country. That statement tells me, you no longer love this country.

  37. cryppticguise says:

    Tony’s a jackass liberal; not really that bright. Great singer, reasonably good painter. He should not make uninformed comments about things he is simply not capable of commenting on intelligently.

  38. Mary says:

    I do not agree with Mr. Bennet but I do agree that he should question the events that took place and how they took place. We are not puppets, we have mind that lets us think and discern and If you have the right to speak your mind then so does everyone else. Otherwise you become the very thing we are supposedly fighting, terrorism. We Americans are too afraid to even listen to someone question the government explanation of 9-11. You know that a lot of it did not make sense and so you prefer to ignore your gut feelings because of what it might imply. Those that bash conspiracy, protest too loudly, there must be something to it, otherwise why does it bother you? No, the day ( I and I am afraid it is already here) that we cannot express what we think or question what is happening is the day we have lost our freedom and that means everyone because you will also disagree one day and you will be criticized and villainized mercilessly as I am hearing on the radio and reading in the news. How dare Mr. Bennet think out of the box, what an evil man he is!!!! God help us.

    1. Al says:

      I’ve heard your kind of crazy talk before. Keep in mind that 9-11 was investigated by a special commission. The case is now closed. There is nothing more to “discern” as you put it. They took out three buildings in NYC — all skyscrapers, though most Americans are too dumb to know anything about the third one they took down. We’ve suffered enough at the hands of terrorists and we must not let our guard down here at home or abroad. Yes, Tony has the right to his opinions, but there’s no place for inflammatory speech, even if it was on the Howard Stern show.

  39. Hank Warren says:

    Who did it? Read a real Banned 9/11 book, here:

  40. don says:

    time for the dirt nap ………..

  41. Will says:

    Mr. Bennett has every right, as we all do, to believe what we believe. Part of the problem today is that we cannot accept that we do differ. However, Mr Bennett must have had a snapshot of WWII experience. Of course there were some who did not want to fight, as in any war. Sometimes war is necessary to stop evil. We loose our perspective with time. Concentration camps, human extinction, human experimentation were all the evil part of WWII that time tends to erase. Fortunately, there were not enough pacifists to attempt to appease Hitler and the Third Reich. War and peace are not opposites. Peace is the agreement of each side. Peace is not appeasement and capitulation. That is called surrender.

  42. JBar595 says:

    Tony, go do that thing to yourself that’s considered impossible.

  43. healthmyths says:

    They were directly and indirectly responsible for the estimated deaths of 1 MILLION children thanks to the policies of blockades/embargos/restrictions in the decade after the Gulf Invasion. 1 MILLION!!!
    I guess you were one of those people that swam in Saddam’s pools at one of his 91 palaces built with the Food for Oil bribe money as well as the KNOWN documented destruction of Mesopotamia called by Scott Pelley of CBS as weapons of mass destruction used by Saddam while 300,000 graves uncovered!

    1. The Facts says:

      Where did you get one million child deaths from? Please identify your source for this claim. Thank you.

  44. healthmyths says:

    I excuse this 85 year old misinformed person because he seems totally ignorant of this statement from Bin Laden:
    “The following text is the second fatwa originally published on February 23, 1998, to declare a holy war,
    or jihad, against the West and Israel. It is signed by Osama bin Laden, head of al Qaeda; Ayman al-Zawahiri, head of Jihad Group in Egypt, and several other Islamic terrorist groups.”
    ‘The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies — civilians and military — is an individual duty for
    every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it, in order to liberate the al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy mosque [Mecca] from their grip, and in order for their armies to move out of all the lands of Islam, defeated and unable to threaten any Muslim.
    This is in accordance with the words of Almighty God, “and fight the pagans all together as they fight you all together,”
    and “fight them until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in God.”
    We — with God’s help — call on every Muslim who believes in God and wishes to be rewarded to comply with God’s order to kill the Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it. We also call on Muslim ulema, leaders, youths, and soldiers to launch the raid on Satan’s U.S. troops and the devil’s supporters allying with them, and to displace those who are behind them so that they may learn a lesson.

  45. Philip Sanchez says:

    Who are any of these ass-hats to question your patriotism?
    You are absolutely right.
    You don’t need to apologize for anything.

    1. Leigh says:

      Then why did he? Album not selling?

  46. Davis says:

    Tony, I’m sorry that truth is treason in the USSR.

  47. Ron C Clair says:

    For Chrissake, he’s in his eighties!

  48. swansong says:

    The CIA recruited, trained, financed and armed bin Laden and the Mujahadeen in the fight against the Soviets…and who, at the time, were referrred to by MSM as Freedom Fighters.

    They continue a policy of financing and arming Israel while tacitly supporting the occupation of Palestine and the attrocities continuing there.

    They have overthrown leaders of countries for decades while arming and financing the “rebels” that eventually murder many of “their own”.

    They were directly and indirectly responsible for the estimated deaths of 1 MILLION children thanks to the policies of blockades/embargos/restrictions in the decade after the Gulf Invasion. 1 MILLION!!! But I guess they had it coming for throwing those babies out of those incubators in Kuwait. Oh…wait…that never happened.

    And this list could go on…

    But yet…so many here don’t think the US bears any of the responsibility for the position in which it finds itself…or the damage inflicted on it.

    To you I say…grow up…take off the blinders…open your eyes…stop loving your country and start loving the truth. As Einstein said…”Nationalism is an infantile sickness. It is the measels of the human race.”

    Y’all may want to look up the term


    1. healthmyths says:

      COGNITIVE DISSONANCE is so cliched! I first used in in my Freshman psych class in 1962! hahahaha!!!

      Explain to me why you hate America when MORE people want to come to America to be able to do what you do… show their ignorance without physical harm that if WHAT you’ve said had been said in Iraq under Saddam you would have been a) drilled through your tongue FIRST, then maybe put out of your misery!
      I laugh so much as idiots like you that the Darwin rule would be applied first by the Muslims i.e. you don’t believe like they do you’re killed! Simple as that!

    2. healthmyths says:

      I sincerely doubt Einstein said”measels of the human race.”
      Just seems a shame your ignorance is on display that you can’t even spell “measles”!.

      And where is Nationalism the issue? We’re talking about the FACTS that Bin Laden for religious purposes wanted the USA out of Saudi Arabia! That’s it!
      Hence the Fatwa.. or as he wrote:
      :The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies — civilians and military — is an individual duty for
      every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it,

    3. The Facts says:

      Where does the one million child deaths figure come from? Pease name the source. Thanks.

  50. Rob A. says:

    Tony, why do you refuse to sing the National Anthem at public events? Could it be that your so-called pacificism is a poor excuse for your left-wing leanings. I, too, am a World War II veteran, and find your card-reading apology to be insincere and is not acceptable.

    1. Rob A. says:

      Also, I have sex with dudes.

    2. Jack says:

      Because he’s not a flag waver. What military strategy book would advice someone to sacrifice twice as many troops, American lives, to retaliate for an attack? The wars in Iraq and Afgahnistan are just that. Just under 3,000 tragically died on 9/11/01. Since then, just over 6,000 American lives have been lost in Iraq, which never attacked us, and Afghanistan, strategically impossible to win albeit justified attack. So, puhleeze Mr. WW2 veteran, quit drinking the Kool Aid and start doing your patriotic duty, and that is to question the Tyranny happening in our Country.

    3. Thomas says:

      OK Tony, so what is next, a statement that you misspoke in the claim that GW told you he made a mistake by invading Iraq, that is an outright lie and and anyone who knows President Bush knows you are a liar. What a shame it is to learn that an American icon is full of $#!%.
