“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.”

Schnall interviewed the former president as part of a documentary called “George W. Bush: The 9/11 Interview,” which is scheduled to air on National Geographic on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. The interview covers a broad range of topics tied to Bush’s response to the attacks — a response which remains a source of deep political division both within the United States and overseas.
