15 Years for Throwing Shoe’s!

Muntadar al-Zaidi, or the “Shoe Thrower” is still in custody and has yet to be seen publically. His brother Uday alleged Friday that his isolation indicates he was abused.

“Until now, neither an attorney nor anyone from his family has seen him and this is clear evidence that Muntadhar was under intense torture,” he said at a demonstration by about 20 family members just outside the Green Zone. “The investigation process is now under way in mysterious circumstances.”

This has become huge in Iraq, many Iraqis consider Muntadar a hero for defying George Bush so publically, they think Bush destroyed their country…A shouting match Wednesday between parliament members for and against Muntadar prompted the speaker, Mahmoud al-Mashhadani, to announce he was resigning. Mashhadani showed up at parliament Thursday to resume his speaker duties. But so many lawmakers were in protest of his outburst that the session was canceled.

Muntadar could get almost 15 years for this, he’s apoligized to the Prime Minister in a letter, in which even he said it was a “ugly act” although I don’t think Bush is aware of it, considering he himself said it was “No big deal” how could the man be prosecuted for Insulting a Foreign Leader?

Shoe Slinger Still Slung

Sorry for the title, the cheezy in me couldn’t resist 😛

The news is still highly a buzz about the Iraqi reporter that threw his shoe’s at George Bush. He hasn’t been released yet and there is no real confirmation on whether he’s hurt or not…I beg the question, why not? The Bush rep’s have said that it’s not a big deal etc, Bush wasn’t even hurt, his secretary was. The poor women has a black eye from one of the shoe’s! And even she said it’s not worth all the worry.

“So what if the guy threw his shoe at me?” Bush told a reporter in response to a question about the incident.
“Let me talk about the guy throwing his shoe. It’s one way to gain attention. It’s like going to a political rally and having people yell at you. It’s like driving down the street and having people not gesturing with all five fingers, It’s a way for people to draw attention. I don’t know what the guy’s cause is. But one thing is for certain. He caused you to ask me a question about it. I didn’t feel the least bit threatened by it”

That’s what Bush is going to be remembered for…screwing up America and ducking some Iraqi reporter’s shoe..

What a Legacy the Man Leaves!
