President George Bush came under attack during his surprise visit to Baghdad on Sunday.
The President was visiting the war torn Iraqi capital for the last time during his term in office to celebrate a new security agreement between the U.S. and Iraq which takes effect on Jan. 1, and includes a commitment to withdraw all American forces by the end of 2011.
Bush narrowly missed two shoes thrown at his head by Iraqi television journalist Muntadar al-Zeidi during a press conference.
Zeidi interrupted the conference by standing up and shouting in Arabic, “this is a goodbye kiss from the Iraqi people, dog,” and hurled his shoe at President Bush. Zeidi then threw his other shoe and added, “this is from the widows and orphans and all those killed in Iraq.”
