Former President George W. Bush declined President Barack Obama's invitation to attend a ceremony at ground zero on Thursday marking the killing of Osama bin Laden. Bush spokesperson David Sherzer said he "continues to celebrate with all Americans this important victory in the war on terror," but "has chosen in his post-presidency to remain largely out of the spotlight."
