Shoes thrown at Bush

A screen grab from CNN shows President Bush ducking as a journalist hurled two shoes at him during a news conference with Prime Minister Nouri Maliki in Baghdad. "This is a gift from the Iraqis. This is the farewell kiss, you dog," Muntather Zaidi shouted at Bush as he threw his footwear. Neither shoe hit its target.AFP/Getty Images
