GW Bush Cancels Appearance at Event, Citing Speaking Invite Sent to Assange

Good on him!

Former President George W. Bush has canceled a planned appearance in Denver tomorrow because WikiLeaks Editor-in-Chief Julian Assange was also extended an invitation to speak[...]

"This week, upon learning that Julian Assange had recently been invited to address the same summit, President Bush decided to cancel his appearance," Bush spokesman David Sherzer said in a statement. "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."
