EXCLUSIVE: 'F*** it, we're going to war.' How George W. Bush rejected diplomacy with the Taliban to launch Afghanistan invasion after 9/11, new documentary reveals

George W. Bush told a State Department official who tried to persuade him not to invade Afghanistan: 'F*** it, we're going to war'.

The former president gave the blunt comment at Camp David days after 9/11 as he decided whether to go after the Taliban, a new documentary reveals.

Mike Morell, Bush's briefer about the CIA, said that the President remarked 'the only way to do that is militarily' - and it was too late for diplomacy.

The extraordinary anecdote features in a new documentary about the Bush White House which says he had a 'vacuum' for foreign policy that was filled by his hawkish advisers.
