Tony Bennett was on Howard Stern's show when the conversation turned to 9/11. Bennett, a noted pacifist, was taking an anti-war stance when Howard said, "What do you do about these terrorists who blew up the world trade center?" Bennett asked: "But who are the terrorists? Are they the terrorists or are we the terrorists? Two wrongs don't make a right." This caused what's known in the business as a "shit storm." Tony has since clarified his remarks, saying: "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 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." [Newsday]
