Video: Mellencamp says U.S. should have negotiated with Osama after 9/11

Low-hanging fruit here, admittedly, but still tasty. He’s not a pacifist, just an appeaser with an ad contract from Chevrolet who doesn’t believe in going to war until we’ve exhausted all of our diplomatic options or skyscrapers, whichever comes first. He has the shine of enlightenment on him, too, even though he doesn’t seem to have a real firm grasp of “little brother’s” demands and is quick to disclaim knowledge sufficient to form an opinion about, um, Pearl Harbor once Charlie Rose tosses that fastball at him.

And the conspiracy theorizing at the end? Gravy. Click the image to watch.

Update: Well, give him this — at least he’s consistent.

Sounding like the knee-jerk nincompoop that he must be, Mellencamp thinks that, “Instead of worrying about somebody having a pen knife on an airplane, we should be figuring out why a brother of ours would behave so incorrectly. What have we done to make this part of the world family so hateful to us?”

That’s from one of Debbie Schlussel’s posts dated November 8, 2001.

Unfortunately for Mellencamp, Bin Laden did talk to us before he hit us on Sep 11 and made it clear what he wanted: For America to answer the call of Islam and convert. In Islam, if your enemy does not convert, then Muslims either subjugate or kill them.

So which one does Mellencamp want to do? How exactly do you talk to a predator who will not accept anything but your defeat? And there’s some more bad news for Mellencamp: The Wahhabis don’t do music.
