Iraqi Journalist Throws Shoes at George W.Bush?

To much of my surprise I saw, on Yahoo, the above title (minus the questions mark). The story goes, George W.Bush makes a surprise visit to Iraq. During a press conference with Iraqi president (I don’t know his name) a Journalist throws both of his shoes at the President. The President ducked and was NOT hit by either shoe. No one was injured during this fiasco. 

 

As all of you probably know my anti-New World Order attitude, it only seems natural for me to debunk this. I am, and I think you will be pleased with the results. 

 

Before we start I want everyone to see the real thing so here is a video.  The captions in the video are what the journalist is saying during his rampant shoe throwing.

 

Now let me show you the flaws with this whole scenario and why this was all an act…..a rehearsed act. Just like the Bin Laden Videos. 

 

Mr.Bush, Just seconds before a Journalist throws two shoes at him.

Mr.Bush, Just seconds before a Journalist throws the first of two shoes at him.

Mr.Bush, Just milliseconds before a Journalist throws two shoes at him.

Mr.Bush, Just milliseconds before a Journalist throws the second of two shoes at him.

 

Now lets skip to the more exciting part. While the shoe is actually making its way over Mr.Bush’s head.

 

 

Mr. Bush, while the first of two shoes comes over his head.

Mr. Bush, while the first of two shoes comes over his head.

 

 

 

Let us analyze the first flaw in this act. 

 

 

"How is Bush able to duck, yet the Iraqi president can't react?"

"How is Bush able to duck, yet the Iraqi president can't react?"

 

 

How is Bush able to swiftly duck, yet the Iraqi president can barely react? That “shoe” is a sandal, which carries significantly less mass which means significantly less velocity. 

 

 

The second shoe is flying over Bush's head.

Now the flaws.

 

 

"The Iraqi President has yet to offer a believable reaction."

"The Iraqi President has yet to offer a believable reaction."

 The Iraqi President has yet to offer a believable reaction. Unwillingly, extending your arm is in no way protecting the president nor changing the trajectory of the sandal. 

 

 

 

Seconds after Bush nearly get hit in the head by two shoes thrown by a journalist.

Now the flaws of this image.

 

 

Bush shoos a security guard after the guard comes to his aid.

You may need to watch the video again to spot this one. Mr.Bush actually shoos the guard away as the guard comes to his aid. 

 

Now I want to talk about the key area in this video. It is the whole back half of the room. Here is an untouched picture with no visual aid from me. Pay attention to the back half of the room. Just think, what is missing?

 

 

Pay attention to the back half.

Pay attention to the back half.

Do you know what’s wrong?  well, here are the answers. 

 

 

 

 

 

The chandelier is in the way of the sandal throw.

The chandelier is in the way of the sandal throw.

First off, their are no security guards behind the president or on either side. There isn’t even anyone sitting at the desk to the left. Here’s why, Judging by the  reflections of the chandelier  off the wall and desk, the chandelier is directly or approximately under the desk and in line with Bush and the Iraqi president. To be honest I’ve never seen the president, or any president, talk at a podium at the FAR right of a room and skip the middle. If Mr.Bush and the Iraqi president were in the middle of the room, like they were suppose to be, and the guards were near the president, like they were suppose to be, The sandal would have hit the chandelier and all havoc would wreak. Pieces of chandelier would be everywhere and the president could have been injured. 

If you look at the chandeliers height, based on reflection, it is right in-line with the door which is at a safe guess of 7ft. Assuming that the president is an  average height of 6ft that makes the chandelier only 1 foot higher than the presidents head. 

Instead of catastrophe, the sandals quietly slam into the wall behind and guards suspiciously run out from the door on the side of the wall behind the president. It took a whopping 7 seconds for the guards to reach the president from that back room as well as the guard that had to stagger over people. According to my calculations if the journalist had a standard hand gun, he could have got off 9 to 11 shots in that same period of 7 seconds. The last time the secret service was not around the president was during John F.Kennedy’s deadly drive through Dallas. 

 

All comments and opinions welcome.

  1. Good call.
    the hole thing is pretty fishy but im not so sure y.
    I was watching the Colbert report last night and he made a point by saying that ” the secret services lack shoes protection”

    now i have problemes in finding any footage of that journalist whit Bush before the incident , but wat i go to see is that he is not the likes to wear ”sandals” when on a professional ”presidential” visit. I mean , its a good idea if you bring an extra pair…but it would look premeditated right?

    You braught up the ”crapy” inplacement …could be cause by the chandelier in the first place….could be.

    what could have been gain by the president for ”dodging”
    if anything pop up ill look into it but then the only other party is the journalist himself…
    we need backgroud control
    and backtrack the entire day of the president ( y did he HAVE to make the anouncing there? )

    i mean he really hade a chance to empty a clip in uncle Sam
    has 4 me
    im a sword fighter, i have keen sences and i traine my reflex on a daily basis.
    Ive been on a stage and i have hade all the lights in my eyes before
    2 factors whitch seem bother me is that i myself would have hade a hard time to dodge…
    then again, to trow a cendal whit presision is a feat itself.

      The reason why this happened, was so that Mr. Bush can have an excuse to stay longer. He can bring more troops or convince Obama to bring more because the iraqi people are still refusing democracy.
      While all of that is untrue, the Iraqis want democracy, they like democracy, and they already have democracy that is why they want us out. Dick Cheney wants more oil and Sarah Palin wants to build her gas line that she has been ranting about.
      They signed that deal to keep the troops until 2012. Palin is running for president in 2012. wow, I just convinced myself that the 2012 election will be rigged. I need to post this.

  2. To be honest i don’t believe what this journalist did is going to change anything about bush,

    All world is aware what bush did in iraq,i am a muslim and i don’t think its the best way how to express your anger or frustartion he is a journalist and educated man i have no idea why he behaved like that.

    For me that was just rebel and to show off to humiliate the us president but it was the other way around.

      Thank You Mourad, for that comment. I am honored to have people of many different cultures and religions comment on this subject. I also agree with you, if you dislike what a president or leader does then either kill him or you don’t. If this was true, then it was simply a case of trying to embarrass him. If it is fake, then it is just another way for America to globalize.

    Speaking of George W. Bush:

    George W. Bush committed hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism (indicated in my blog).

    George W. Bush did in fact commit innumerable hate crimes.

    And I do solemnly swear by Almighty God that George W. Bush committed other hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism which I am not at liberty to mention.

    Many people know what Bush did.

    And many people will know what Bush did—even to the end of the world.

    Bush was absolute evil.

    Bush is now like a fugitive from justice.

    Bush is a psychological prisoner.

    Bush has a lot to worry about.

    Bush can technically be prosecuted for hate crimes at any time.

    In any case, Bush will go down in history in infamy.

    ______________________
    I am not sure where I had read it before, but anyway, it is a linguistically excellent statement, and it goes kind of like this: “If only it were possible to ban invention that bottled up memory so it never got stale and faded.” Oh wait—off the top of my head—I think the quotation came from my Lower Merion High School yearbook.

      Thanks for that wonderful content. Bush should be executed for the crimes he has committed. He is not worthy to go to jail.

      What’s your blog URL?

    It’s funny how everyone thinks they are a righteous judge when it comes to bush like they have done no wrong in their life and they have some god given right to judge this man. get over it look how foolish this guy looks throwing his shoe, and you think bush is out of line? looks like peoples perception of reality is whats out of line.
