Looks like Cooper is the new Nugent. And he thinks there’s a connection between 9/11 and Saddam to boot!
Alice! Tsk, tsk, tsk. Of course, I won’t file this one under “Dumb Things Said By Smart People” this time. You get a free pass for being a rock god. However, next time I’ll be forced to. Behave yourself.
This interview with Andrew Denton is priceless:
ANDREW DENTON: It doesn’t worry you, the false connection that was made between 9/11 and Saddam Hussein, all that stuff that’s been shown?
ALICE COOPER: No. It doesn’t bother me because I honestly think it’s all connected.
ANDREW DENTON: The one thing we do know about 9/11 is that nobody involved in it actually came from Iraq. That’s probably the one thing we absolutely know.
ALICE COOPER: Well, it’s probably true, but I can’t see them going, “Oh, gosh.” The guys in Iraq going, “Gee, how horrible for America.” I think there’s a general feeling in that world that if America falls they’ll be in a much better state, so we have to view those people in the same boat. I don’t see much difference between the al-Qaeda and Iraq – not the people, I’m talking about the governments. The people, the poor people, are the victims.
