Bush Turns Down Obama Offer To Appear At Ground Zero
Former President George W. Bush recently declined an offer from President Obama to appear at a 9/11 memorial scheduled for tomorrow (May 5).
President Obama is scheduled to visit New York’s ground zero Thursday, in the wake of the death of Osama bin Laden, recently killed in a raid in Pakistan by Navy Seals.
However Bush Jr, the man who initiated the 10-year hide and seek with the al Qaida leader refuses to show.
Bush’s spokesperson David Sherzer cited that former Commander In Chief would rather remain distanced from the spotlight in his post presidency years.
However George W stated that bin Laden’s death was an “important victory for the war on terror.”
Bush was a fledgling president in 2001 when the coordinated al-Qaida plane attack on the World Trade Center happened killing 3,000 people.
