A release quotes him as saying during the interview:

“One of my concerns, like the concerns of other husbands and wives, was, ‘Was my spouse okay? Was Laura okay?’ My second concern was ‘Were our girls okay?’”

The chat was filmed two days after the death of Osama bin Laden.

“And President Obama called me [and] told me that Osama bin Laden had been killed. And my response was, I congratulated him and the special operators that conducted a very dangerous mission … And so I was grateful," Bush said.

"I didn’t feel any great sense of happiness or jubilation. I felt a sense of closure. And I felt a sense of gratitude that justice had been done,” he says.
