Legendary crooner [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Tony Bennett[/lastfm] is on a publicity tour, promoting his new “Duets II” CD. In an interview Monday, he discussed his military career. (Did YOU know he served during World War II?) The conversation then turned to America’s recent conflicts.
Among Bennett’s quotes, “To start a war in Iraq was a tremendous, tremendous mistake internationally.” He asked, “Are we the terrorists or are they the terrorists?” Regarding the 9/11 attacks, “They flew the plane in, but we caused it.”
Whether or not you agree, those are some powerful words! Do you think they will help or hurt Tony’s CD sales and overall popularity?
