Tony Bennett apologizes for 9/11 remarks he made on Howard Stern show

The singing legend has created controversy with his remarks.

Tony Bennett issued an apology for comments he made about September 11 during an interview with Howard Stern on Monday.

Currently in promotion of his new album, “Duets II,” the 85-year-old crooner blamed the 9/11 attacks on the United States ‘ actions abroad.

Appearing on The Howard Stern Show on Monday, Bennett discussed his military service during World War II and how it affected him.

“The first time I saw a dead German, that’s when I became a pacifist,” he said.

He continued: “To start a war in Iraq was a tremendous, tremendous mistake internationally.”

When host Howard Stern asked him about how the US should deal with terrorists, specifically those responsible for the 2001 attack, the singer replied: “But who are the terrorists? Are we the terrorists or are they the terrorists? Two wrongs don’t make a right.”

“They flew the plane in, but we caused it because we were bombing them and they told us to stop.”

In a statement obtained by Newsday, Bennett said, “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 (in World War II) 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.”

During the interview Bennett also revealed that former President George W. Bush told him he regretted having started the war in Iraq at a gala in December 2005.

“He told me personally that night … ‘I think I made a mistake,’” Bennett said.

A spokesman for Bush denied that to the Daily News, calling the account “flatly wrong.”

“President Bush has always felt, and consistently expressed, that America is safer without Saddam Hussein in power. He has never said the decision to liberate Iraq was a mistake to Mr. Bennett or to anyone.”
