Shoe Thrower to Go Free

Take cover, George W. Bush: The Iraqi journalist who catapulted to infamy after throwing his shoes at the then-U.S. president during a December press conference will be released from jail on Tuesday. Muntadhar al-Zeidi’s family had gathered for his release from an Iraqi base in Baghdad at dawn on Monday, but was told after five hours of waiting that his release had been delayed until Tuesday due to paperwork processing delays. His family has announced plans to stage a sit-in until he is released.
