WATCH: President George W. Bush: The 9/11 Interview



Former President George W. Bush outlines for the first time in a new documentary how events unfolded for him following the 9-11 attacks.

In the National Geographic Channel special, “George W. Bush: The 9-11 Interview,” the former President talks about the chaotic moments after the attacks and the reasoning behind decisions he made that day.

Bush reflects on being told about the attacks while visiting schoolchildren in Florida and the difficulty in getting accurate information in what he calls “the fog of war.”  He also talks about returning to the White House to address Americans in the hours after the terrorist attacks.

Fearing a possible psychological boost for al-Qaeda, Bush said he, quote, “damn sure wasn’t going to give it from a bunker in Nebraska.”

The former President recalls the emotional visit to Ground Zero just three days after the World Trade Center Towers were destroyed.

He describes “a palpable bloodlust” among workers in the ruins who were encouraging him to retaliate against those behind the attacks.

  2. Reply to #3, Don’t you think that Obama would have also done something heroic on that day? I’m sure that he would have drawn a red line in the ashes and threatened Al-Qaeda to not bother us or else he would draw another red line.

  3. President Bush was a fine President. It is wonderful to see him finally get some positive feedback. He was a president of decisive action, and a good man.
    Well done
