Appearing on the Sirius Radio show, the 85-year-old crooner said that “we caused” the terrorist attacks on 9-11 and that Bush admitted to him that launching the war in Iraq was wrong.
After Stern asked the singer how the U.S. should deal with terrorists, Bennett replied: They flew the plane in, but we caused it. Because we were bombing them and they told us to stop.
ABC News reported that Bennett also said: But who are the terrorists? Are we the terrorists or are they the terrorists? Two wrongs don't make a right.
He also indicated that when he met with Bush at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC in 2005, the former president told me personally that night that, he said, 'I think I made a mistake.'
Bennett thinks Bush made the admission because he had a special liking to me.
“To start a war in Iraq was a tremendous, tremendous mistake internationally, he added.
