Oh Yes He Did
Under the heading of unintentional irony, I give you the asshat himself, GWB (or rather his spokesperson on his behalf):
"The former president has no desire to share a forum with a man who has willfully and repeatedly done great harm to the interests of the United States," Sherzer said in a written statement.Wow. Even if there were evidence, rather than the bloviation of pols, that Assange (through Wikileaks) had done harm, let alone great harm to the US, he'd have to go quite some way to match the devastation of W. One also wonders just how schizophrenic an organization has to be to have these two as invited speakers. Bush - still a petulant prat; no surprise there.
