Here's the link to the video of an Iraqi journalist throwing his shoes at Bush.
Luckily the President has quick reflexes.
He will win a Pulitzer for that.
And this jerk lived under Saddam?? This is the thanks he gives when over 4,000 Americans gave their lives so he can do this????
Very disconcerting - he could have had a pistol and would have shot the president in the head - point blank. Did you see the lag time before a single secret service agent arrived?
They probably wanded and searched them all for weps..that is why he had to resort to the shoes.
You put your right foot in, and you shake it all about, You put your left foot in, that’s what it’s all about.
What this fool and all the liberals who will crow over this are oblivious to is the fact that this idiot COULD throw his shoes at the President and, obviouly, he did not fear retribution. That alone vindicates Pres. Bush.
Under Hussein (Saddam not Barrack) this overgrown 2 year old would have been thrown down a wood chipper or fed to lions and all footage of it would have been destroyed.
Probably the only time an alert Secret Service agent would ever have the need to yell “SHOE!!!”;)
Now can we go & just let Allah and/or whoever else is left after we level Irag upon leaving sort them out? Juz wondering:
He is a jounalist; nothing more needs to be said.
Also, I think a lot of those security dudes in the vid are not US.
What is it with “journalists”?
And a Nobel Peace Prize.
Was he given this assignment by CNN?
The reporter was allegedly from Egyptian Newspaper. I can’t believe the comments on YouTube.
That he could do this and live shows our victory and his stupidity.
The smell should be considered a dangerous weapon!
This could have been serious.
This “journalist” could have called hum a “house negroe”
Someone threw a shoe at Richard Perle on a college campus a few years ago.
