Default Iraqi Shoe Thrower Gets a Taste of His Own Medicine

PARIS — The Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at President George W. Bush in Baghdad last year had a taste of his own medicine Tuesday when he nearly got beaned by a shoe thrower at a news conference in Paris.

Muntadhar al-Zeidi ducked and the shoe hit the wall behind him.

Click here for photos.

"He stole my technique," al-Zeidi later quipped.

The identity of the new shoe-thrower — and his motivation — weren't immediately clear, but he appeared to be an Iraqi. It was not known if the intruder was a journalist or just pretended to be one to attend the news conference at a center for foreign reporters.

Whatever his motive, the confrontation didn't stop there.

Al-Zeidi's brother, Maithan, chased the attacker in the audience and — what else? — pelted him with a shoe as he left the room.

Muntadhar al-Zeidi, a TV reporter, became a hero to many opponents of the Iraq war when he hurled his shoes at Bush during a news conference in Baghdad in December 2008 while shouting: "This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq." Al-Zeidi was quickly wrestled to the ground by security guards, then imprisoned for nine months before being released in September.

I am curious to see who this guy is, what his story is. Is he a displaced Iraqi from the Saddam years? If so he knows how violent that era was for the Iraqi's.

Don't worry WARDen, I know that Foxnews isn't a real news network, so these are for you,

I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall in that room.

I loved this story! Anybody care to join me in a business venture? I'd like to open a shoe store in Paris...


Who throws a shoe?? Honestly!
