Bush ducks more than accountability

Shoes thrown at President Bush in Iraq. As America prepares to give him the boot, President Bush was forced to do some atypical sole searching during a press conference in Iraq when an Iraqi television reporter flung both shoes at him.

Video behind the cut:

HuffP has MSNBC video without ads and adds: “In Iraqi culture, throwing shoes at someone is a sign of contempt. Iraqis whacked a statue of Saddam Hussein with their shoes after U.S. marines toppled it to the ground after the 2003 invasion.” This is a “gross insult in the Arab world.”

Value added video.
