Former President George W. Bush has turned down President Barack Obama’s invitation to join him at ground zero on Thursday, citing his desire to avoid the media glare.
“President Bush appreciated the invite, but has chosen in his post-presidency to remain largely out of the spotlight,” Bush spokesman David Sherzer told POLITICO in an email Tuesday night. “He continues to celebrate with all Americans this important victory in the war on terror.”
Bush, who grabbed a bullhorn and vowed to avenge the attacks during a visit to the trade center’s smoking ruins days after bin Laden’s terrorists struck, will attend the 10th anniversary commemoration of the nation’s worst terror attack on Sept. 11, 2011, Sherzer said.
