Bush: no sense of jubilation at bin Laden's death

Former President George W. Bush says he experienced no pleasure when he heard about the death of Osama bin Laden, the al Qaeda leader responsible for orchestrating the deadly terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

"He was sitting in a restaurant in Dallas when the Secret Service told him that President (Barack) Obama wanted to speak to him. He then learned about the assassination," documentarian Peter Schnall told CNN in an interview set to air Monday.

Bush "said to us certainly there was no sense of jubilation (and) certainly no sense of happiness," Schnall stressed. "If anything, he felt that finally there was a sense of closure."

    Gordon Duff is Senior Editor of veterans Today. A Marine & Vietnam vet himself he has a diverse background of experience in banking, military & defence affairs. He also has been a UN ambassador for Human Rights. His articles are widely read around the world.
    In a Press TV interview on Tuesday, Gordon Duff showed evidence including videos, that the attack on Pentagon was carried out by a missile from a different angle, not the alleged passenger plane. He also recounted eyewitness accounts including that of CNN correspondents who reported from the site, that there was no debris of a crashed plane on the ground after the attack.

    Disturbing questions out there for us Americans to ponder.

    Wow, had no idea Bush had started work at La Bare doing table dances! I have totally misunderestimated him & would actually love to see a video of that! The economy must really be in the deep end for him to take that kind of job & now I get why the so called Ti.ti.y Tax has been revived in Tx. !Dubya is probably not making much in tips & has to rely on the covercharge from the door! It's so much fun to spin tales by taking things out of context!! 😉

    when i heard osama was killed i was like "whoopity doo"...
    i was really dissapointed cause they lacked any style points.. like had two helocopters one ontop of the other and push him out the door or something..
    or release him in the ocean off a boat and pull the ladder in then start thorwing buckets of blood out in the water...
    or strap him to a predertaer drone and fly it around then blam!...

    @ Clearmind

    Go tell that to Gordon Duff, a decoarated brave American Marine, fiercely patriotic and with intellect.

    I don't make these things up and do not keepyself glued to Faux News Channel & other pro;paganda outlets. As an American whose friends & acquaintances died in that attack, I need to know the truth.

    And most certainly I will continue to listen to those who seek the truth and aren't afraid to tell it as it is and will post wht I learn.

    @ Cezar
    God bless you. Keep warm.

    But Bush should have felt kinda like a feeling of "Mission Accomplished." Who is say what?

    Bush wasn't happy, because he knows the other puppet being controlled by his master snakes Draco Satan took over in 2008.. He also knows that the Bin Laden death was stolen from Transformers the movie. Hahahaah.. You really think you're soooooo brilliant don't you? See why God hates you? There is no humility about you, nor is there any truth. All lies, games and ego.. At least I can admit how dumb I was to be suckered by you. All those years ago. You and I both know it's just you and I here, so quit with the Sharad ... I mean Charade.
