Tony Bennett is probably sorry for saying you caused 9/11, America

On Monday, Tony Bennett went on the Howard Stern show and sang that timeless standard, “Hey, Guys, Maybe We’re the Real Terrorists.” Now he’s having second thoughts, sort of. Newsday:

Tony Bennett apologized Tuesday for remarks he made in a radio interview Monday that blamed the United States for the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

“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,” he said. “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.”

I guess that’s sort of an apology. “War is bad and I’m super-old, so can we just forget that thing I said about 9/11? kthxbai”
