Just up at KKTV, how interesting:
Former President George W. Bush has canceled a speaking engagement in Denver after learning that Julian Assange would also be speaking.
Statement from David Sherzer, spokesman for George W. Bush:
“Six months ago, President Bush accepted an invitation to speak to the YPO Global Leadership Summit in Denver on February 26, 2011. This week, upon learning that Julian Assange had recently been invited to address the same summit, President Bush decided to cancel his appearance. 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.”
We assume that Julian Assange of Wikileaks would have been speaking via satellite, as he’s got several very good reasons to not be able to physically enter the United States right now.
And once again, did you know George W. Bush was coming to town?
