President Bush is heading back to Washington this morning after surprise visits to Afghanistan and Iraq. Even the President acknowledged what happened there was unusual, to say the least.

Ironically, it was where violence is declining, in Iraq, hours earlier that fury at the President was on size-10 display. An Iraqi reporter threw one shoe at the leader of the free world, then another, yelling this is your farewell kiss, you dog!

President bush ducked and was not hurt, seemingly not phased even.

President Bush said "if you want to know the facts it was a size 10 shoe that he threw."
