Man Throws Shoes At Bush In Iraq During Press Conference (video)

Man Throws Shoes At Bush In Iraq During Press Conference:
"***UPDATE*** 1:27PM

McClatchy reports that the man who hurled his shoes at Bush during his press conference was an Iraqi journalist:
An Iraqi television journalist hurled two shoes at President Bush on Sunday during a joint news conference Bush was holding with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki to mark the signing of a U.S.-Iraq security agreement.

Bush had just finished his prepared remarks in which he said the security agreement was made possible by the U.S. surge of troops earlier this year, whhen the journalist, Muthathar al Zaidi pulled his shoes off and hurled them at the president. 'This is a goodbye kiss, you dog,' Zaidi shouted.
Bush dodged the shoes and was not struck. Bodyguards quickly wrestled Zaidi to the floor and hauled him, kicking and screaming, from the room. Two other Iraqi journalists were briefly detained after one of them called Zaidi's actions 'courageous.'"
