Iraqi Shoe Throwing Journalist Gets Shoe Thrown At Him [Video]

Posted Dec 3, 2009


This past Tuesday the Iraqi journalist that was known for throwing a shoe at President George Bush, Muntadar al-Zaidi, actually got a taste of his own medicine. At a press conference in Paris, the Iraqi journalist said that he never asked President George Bush to pardon him even when being beaten. He even said that he was not afraid of being beaten and said that he would do it again and actually hit Bush if he could. That statement outraged a member in the audience enough to throw a shoe at him. The original video of Muntadar throwing the shoe at former President Bush has been viewed well over one million times on YouTube.
