In-Depth Interview with Producer/Director Peter Schnall


George W. Bush: The 9/11 Interview Director/Producer Peter Schnall recently sat down with Polioptics hosts Adam Belmar and Josh King to discuss the extraordinary opportunity of working on this film. Known for living a very private life since leaving office, President Bush has only commented publicly on rare occasions. For Schnall to be able to sit down with the president for over four hours speaking candidly, a true conversation with no notes or previously-delivered questions, was quite an honor and privilege as a filmmaker. Schnall shares his experience documenting history, how he was able to land the opportunity and gain access to never-before-seen footage and imagery, the unique challenges he faced, and much more.

George W. Bush: The 9/11 Interview airs August 28th  at 10P et/pt.

    HOW DARE YOU waste money and time allowing that criminal Bush to present his propaganda about 9-11! We all saw him freeze when he was told about the attack. We all know he and Cheney went into hiding. Unfortunately, NOT everyone knows that the ONLY plane allowed to fly when U.S. air space shut down was a plane AUTHORIZED BY BUSH carrying bin Laden’s family out of Boston. It was Rudy Giuliani (hated by a lot of us New Yorkers) who was out in the streets right away, taking action AND acting like a human being for the first time. Bush waited a couple of days to jump on the bandwagon and pretend he was a leader, by holding a photo op. Shame on you, NAT GEO! I used to respect you. Now you’re allowing the Republican party to rewrite history, and giving them a platform to spread lies. Shake hands with FOX "News"–you’re now brothers.

    What a Foolish , Ignorant, Hateful mean spirited awful thing to say!!!!! YOU are a Liberal and there is no compassion in your words at all. You do your Party Proud!
    NOBODY in a MILLION years would have ever wanted to hear that news on that Fateful day, and this is what you have to say? How dare you! Who are You? You never respected Nat Geo, you dont respect anyone, you are using this as a forum to spew your hate filled blather. Nobody is asking you to be here, nobody wants to hear you HATE. President Bush has so much Love and Respect and Compassion for the people of this great nation, regardless of their race, political affiliation, and it’s people like you who give us a bad name around the world, because you don’t know how to work Together, and it shows with your current "leader" who is destroying the Unity we all came to know Under the Bush Administration. You dont have to like this man, you dont have to agree, but what you say is totally wrong and off base, do yourself a favor and get educated..And maybe learn the meaning of Compassion..President Bush surely didnt plan to have 9-11 happen , and it did indeed change the entire Presidency for him, Beyond our Control.
