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."

    What happened to them? he he. What happened to the list of them...Flight 77s passenger manifest is still a mystery, as are the jets flight recorders. (ditto the virtually indestructable flight recorders of the two jets that hit the towers. Black-boxes are DESIGNED for this sort of thing. What are the odds that all three jets each had their several recorders (jets have a min of two each) destroyed by a fire that didn't melt plastic passports? And why wasn't the Securacom corporation ever questioned? They had security contracts for the Towers complex, Dulles Airfield, and Boston logan. What happened to Securacom?

    Ok ok we are going in circles. for me families know they put their loved ones on those planes and knew the flight numbers. to he.ll with passenger list etc... the families knew. unless all of those people were actors involved in a govt cover up.

    Sorry to hear about your wife Mr. Sand k. May she rest in peace. And I believe what Jesus said about her and all who have died...she is "sleeping in death" to be awakened (resurrected back to life on earth) once God has "set matters straight" concerning those who willfully and stubbornly ruin this home God made just for us. I believe that you can see her in the flesh again, Mr. Sandy K...and I got this belief from the bible. Are you a believer in God's word?
