One of the biggest figures in 9/11 history -- former President George W. Bush -- hasn't had a lot to say publicly about the anniversary, and turned down interview requests with the Star-Telegram and countless other media organizations. His most extensive remarks come in an exclusive documentary interview that will air at 9 p.m. CDT tonight on the National Geographic Channel.
One memorable quote from the former Texas governor and current resident of Dallas: "It became apparent we were facing a new kind of enemy. This is what war was like in the 21st century."
Declares Bush: "Sept. 11 is a monumental day in our nation's history, a significant day, and it obviously changed my presidency. I went from being a president that was primarily focused on domestic issues to a wartime president. It's something I never anticipated nor something I ever wanted to be."
