"They flew the plane in, but we caused it," the 85-year-old crooner told Stern on his Sirius Radio show Monday night. "Because we were bombing them and they told us to stop."
Bennett's controversial answer came after Stern asked the World War II vet how the U.S. should deal with the terrorists responsible for toppling the Twin Towers.
"But who are the terrorists?" Bennett said, according to ABC News. "Are we the terrorists or are they the terrorists? Two wrongs don't make a right."
It will be interesting to see how much flack the MSM tries to generate against the much-beloved singer for his honesty. (Even the title of the article in the "liberal" New York Daily News says he "delivers rant" about 9/11.)
