"Bush planned to be at a Young Presidents' Organization Global Leadership Summit Saturday but backed out when he learned Assange was invited, Bush spokesman David Sherzer said.
"Sherzer said Bush doesn't want to be part of a forum that invited someone who has 'willfully and repeatedly done great harm to the interests of the United States.'"
Considering that England and Sweden are playing badminton with Assange at the moment, he obviously wouldn't have been there, at least not in person, but W let it be known that he would not, could not besmirch his honor and reputation by being on the same program as another young prez who appears to be guilty of........revelations that might call a halt to the kinds of insanity Bush & Co. visited on the world!
Just for the record, lets look at some numbers W has racked up and not only views without shame,but over which he apparently holds himself harmless:
Estimated number of Iraqis slaughtered since the U.S. invaded Iraq: 1,421,933.
Officially acknowledged military personnel slaughtered in Iraq: 4,757
International Occupation Force Troops slaughtered In Afghanistan: 2,341
Cost of War in Iraq and Afghanistan: $1,157,420,329,819If the cost in human life is not sufficiently shocking, how about the wasted cash?
That last figure is one trillion, one hundred fifty-seven billion, four hundred twenty million, three hundred twenty-nine thousand, eight hundred nineteen.
