Former President George W. Bush has declined an offer from President Obama to attend tomorrow's ceremony at the World Trade Center site, a Bush spokesman confirmed.
"President Bush will not be in attendance on Thursday," said his spokesman, David Sherzer. "He appreciated the invite, but has chosen in his post-presidency to remain largely out of the spotlight. He continues to celebrate with Americans this important victory in the war on terror."
The White House did not confirm that the invitation had been made or comment on Mr. Bush’s decision.
Not a very surprising decision on Bush's part imo.
Bush famously visited Ground Zero three days after the catastrophic attacks of September 11, 2001.
