Throwing Shoes at Bush

Muntadar al-Zaidi is a hero who speaks for millions of us in the United States, as well as millions in Iraq.

The 28-year-old journalist has previously been held for questioning twice by US forces, and was kidnapped and questioned by unknown persons who beat him unconscious. He knew what he was risking by throwing shoes at Bush.

Since being taken into custody this time he has apparently suffered a broken arm, broken ribs and internal bleeding.

Unconfirmed stories have Adnan Hamad, former coach of the Iraqi soccer team, offering $100,000 for the shoes, and a Saudi citizen offering $10 million.

Zaidi is a hero. Reward him.
