Iraqi journalist presents GWB with two weapons of mass destruction


At the BBC site:

A surprise visit by US President George Bush to Iraq has been overshadowed by an incident in which two shoes were thrown at him during a news conference.

An Iraqi journalist was wrestled to the floor by security guards after he called Mr Bush "a dog" and threw his footwear, just missing the president.

Homage paid to one of the great statesmen of the era. And of course the discovery of these WMD vindicates all US actions: suppose these two shoes had been launched at NYC -- the havoc they would have wreaked.
