Iraqi Man Throws Shoes at President Bush

On December 14, 2008,

ABC News’ Martha Raddatz reports from Baghdad: Not everyone is excited about President Bush’s surprise trip to Iraq.

An Iraqi journalist in Prime Minister Nouri-al Maliki’s palace threw two shoes at President Bush during a joint press conference with Maliki. The president quickly had to duck to avoid the shoes, while Maliki stretched out his right hand to try to catch the second one. Neither leader was hit.
