    You falsely quoted him. He did not say he was NOT interested in the facts but:

    ... Schnall said he tried not to push “it too far” with the former president, and that he was “less interested in facts than how” Bush “was feeling”:...

    While I don't think he expressed himself well, to me it was clear he stated that he intended to present a drama versus a documentary, and was not concerned with covering all the details but instead wanted to deal with the character (Bush).

    As an aside, a Democratic leaning producer is planning to release a movie on the death of Bin Laden approx 30 days prior to the election. I'm sure the emphasis will not be on the facts, but on how Obama singlehandedly with a knife in his mouth and making all the "tough" decisions single-handedly killed Bin Laden. But fear not - we will have plenty of time to deal with that movie.

    A movie on "the death of OBAMA"?!
    FYI, President Obama is very much ALIVE.

    LOL!
    We have a major Freudian slip, here, folks!

    As if we didn't already know that Socal's hatred for our president is so extreme that he wishes President Obama was dead!

    As much as I strongly disapprove of the unbelievably bad job Bush did as president - I would never wish that Bush was dead!

    I want Bush to live a long long life, so he can live to hear future generations curse him for the EPIC messes he made.

    Most of the mainstream media have not been interested in 'facts' right from the begining of this 911 story. Ever notice how little has ever been said or written, much less explained about building 7 coming down. There is no reasonable explaination having to do with the planes hitting the taller buildings and their coming down and their proximity to building 7 and it coming down too. At least not according to hundreds of supposed experts in engineering, explosives, and etc. who have signed letters demanding an investigation and explainations for discrepancies in the official story and eyewitness accounts. Building 7 was also ignored by the 911 commission. The Mainstream Media picks and chooses what is given attention, and who is calling the shots is what I'd like to know.

    I won't be wasting my time watching this bungler bush being glorified over 911, which he turned into the god damdest worst reaction fiasco in the US history, setting our country on a downward spiral of unbelievable proportions. We sure have a lot to thank bush/cheney and their neocons for don't we. OH BUT THEY KEPT US SAFE !!! what a sham !!

    The Facts?????

    The Facts are plain and simple just like he did with the Financial sector during his Presidency and with Emergency management when a Hurricane hit this man sat back and and did NOTHING while people in the Intelligence community were screaming Wake Up Mr President .... There's going to be a Terrorist attack here in America

    Those are the facts .... and they never can be changed no matter how much NewsCorp and FOX and Mr Bush would like to change them

    Actually, I thought it was the National Geographic Channel that is airing the Bush interview on 9/11 this Sunday. Regardless, as an American who is entitled to have an opinion, I will gladly and openly say that I was enormously proud of President Bush during the 9/11 tragedy (as were millions of Americans, regardless of how those on the left may like us to believe otherwise). From the moment he heard the news while sitting in that classroom in Florida full of children and had the heart and sense to remain composed so as to not alarm the kids while he gathered his thoughts and then made a graceful exit, I always felt Bush was in full control and that we were in good hands. It's so easy for all the Monday morning quarterbacks who were not there, do not have ALL the facts, and who are not experts or people of power, to criticize. I think President Bush did a fine job, under the most unbelievably tragic of times, and he did it with calm and grace. Ten years later, I feel exactly the same and I don't think that will ever change. I'm proud of President Bush , and I always will be. More importantly, regardless of how others may like to spin it, millions of Americans feel like I do.

    Yah and you and "millions of Americans" have been duped !!!

    Bush and his Neo Cons reaction played right into the hands of Bin Ladens terrorist group, giving them more than they could have dreamt of. The ruination of the American economy and the wars that included verified torture which turned into the greatest reason for terrorist recruitment possible.

    Bin Laden spent around $500,000 to Bush's nearly $5 trillion overall wasted on his sham war on terrorism cover for his oil resource war. YESIREEEE Bush makes us proud !!!!!

    If you look back at Bush and his speeches shortly after the event his stories are mixed up and don't make much sense...

    Agreed.He had the 'rabbit in the headlights look' about him,but I think he was genuinely shocked that such a thing could be done to so conventionally powerful a country like the USA.
    I don`t think the film has to be necessarily scruplously neutral about Bush and 9/11-just as long as the viewers know of the director`s/producer`s agenda,etc.
