"Shoe-thrower sentenced to three years in prison" by Anthony Shadid, Washington Post | March 13, 2009
BAGHDAD - A Baghdad judge ruled yesterday that an Iraqi journalist who hurled his shoes at President George W. Bush was guilty of assaulting a foreign leader and sentenced him to three years in prison, a verdict that unleashed tumult in the courtroom.
"Long live Iraq!" shouted the television journalist, Muntadar al-Zaidi, as the sentence was handed down. Smiling and waving, the 30-year-old Zaidi was escorted from the dilapidated courthouse in the Green Zone, where a crowd had gathered outside the courtroom doors. His sister collapsed on the floor in tears and police hustled two of his brothers out of the building after the verdict was heard.
See how the MSM tries to prejudice your thoughts? Yup, NO MENTION of the TORTURE the guy has endured at the hands of Maliki's U.S.-trained torture squads, I mean, police units.
"You're a hero, Muntadar!" some shouted.
I'll second that here on the web!
"The judge were puppets sitting in the court," one brother, Dhurgham, said.
Zaidi became a folk hero of sorts in the Arab world after hurling both shoes at Bush, with considerable speed and accuracy, during a news conference Dec. 14. Bush ducked. "This is your farewell kiss, you dog!" Zaidi had shouted as he threw the footwear. "This is from the widows, the orphans, and those who were killed in Iraq."
I love the the MSM jew, I mean, skew! He ain't a folk hero "of sorts!" He is a HERO, period!! And it is NOT JUST the ARAB WORLD, joosmedia!!! He TOSSED THOSE SHOES for the ENTIRE WORLD, save the sick little sliver of a pschopathic, world-ruling clique!
In the days that followed, Zaidi's spectacle became a fixture of almost every conversation in Iraq and the rest of the Middle East. The gesture captured the deep-seated anger many in Iraq feel toward the US occupation and the forces it unleashed that helped devastate the country. In Zaidi's honor, restaurants were renamed, banners hung, and graffiti scrawled across concrete barriers erected to stop attacks that still kill hundreds....
Why would they hate our "liberation" of them, readers? The torture and two million dead probably has something to do with it, 'eh?
And notice how those CONCRETE WALLS of LIBERATION rarely enter into the MSM lexicon -- and even when they do, it's one sentence snuck into a piece.
Hey, what's MORE OMISSIONS by the PROPAGANDA PAPERS of AmeriKa, huh?
Yup, case is closed on these liars as they offer up more testimony of their lies, half-truths, obfuscations and omissions every single day.
