Who Knew Faber College had such a large Music & Arts Program?

Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

What is it with those in the recording industry having difficulty with the origins of various wars? We just mentioned John Cougar Mellencamp’s confusion (during an interview with Charlie Rose) over the causes of both 9/11 and Pearl Harbor(!) earlier today, and now Newsbusters catches this:  “Russell Simmons on CNN: Christians Bombed the WTC in 1993?”

Russell Simmons, founder of the hip-hop label Def Jam, bizarrely and inaccurately claimed during an interview on Wednesday’s Larry King Live on CNN that perpetrators behind the first World Trade Center attack in 1993 were Christians: “If you’re blaming Muslims for the attack on 9/11, then you need to change your mind. We didn’t — did we blame Christians at the first World Trade attack? We didn’t.”

Well, he’s certainly got a point there!
