Bush Refuses to Share Stage with Assange

Oh delicious. The man who squandered our national surplus; let down his guard to terrorists; ignored the plight of New Orleans; started an unnecessary war in Iraq while shifting resources from the war in Afghanistan; undermined our moral authority by allowing torture and thereby strengthened the hands of our enemies in Iran;  says he “has no desire to share a forum with a man who has willfully and repeatedly done great harm to the interests of the United States.”

President George W. Bush canceled a speaking engagement Friday because the group that invited him, the Young Presidents Organization, also asked Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, to take the conference stage.

“The former president has no desire to share a forum with a man who has willfully and repeatedly done great harm to the interests of the United States,” Mr. Bush’s spokesman, David Sherzer, said in a statement.
