by Trendy

George W. Bush sure knows how to duck. The outgoing US president made an unannounced farewell visit to Iraq today. During a press conference, an Arab journalist threw two size 10 shoes at him and shouted (translated into english & according to New York Times) – “This is a farewell kiss, dog,”.

That is some farewell, aint it? The shoe thrower has been identified as Muntadar al-Zeidi. He is a correspondent for Al-Baghdadia television and is based in Egypt. Security officials grabbed Zeidi and took him out of the press conference.
