Julian Assange Scares Off President Bush


After learning that Julian Assange was invited to appear at the Young President’s Organization’s annual Global Youth Leadership Summit in Denver, former president George W. Bush canceled his planned speech at the event scheduled for tomorrow, citing, through a spokesman, “no desire to share a forum with a man who has willfully and repeatedly done great harm to the interests of the United States.” Assange is not actually attending the summit, but he did give a talk today via video, which we guess taints the whole thing now. You’re either with us or against us, Global Youth Leadership summit. [Denver Post]
