Bush avoids terrorist shoe
As I'm sure you have all seen by now an irate Iraqi journalist hurled his shoes at President Bush while he was giving a press conference in Baghdad alongside Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al Maliki. Entertaining stuff. I thought this prez was supposed to be slow but he moved fairly quick in this instance to his credit. Faster reflexes than I would have guessed. Bush was in Baghdad to officially sign the new security pact which permits US forces to stay in the country until 2011. The controversial agreement was backed by the political establishment in Iraq with the exception of Moqtada Al Sadr and his militant Shiite followers. I will post on the ramifications of this development in the very near future. In the meantime watch the clip of the shoe hurling incident. I had to use the fox news clip because you're always guaranteed an extra portion of crassness. Enjoy.
