President Bush told ABC’s Martha Raddatz that he wasn’t by a Iraqi journalist who hurled shoes at him.

“I thought it was interesting, I thought it was unusual to have a guy throw his show at you. But I’m not insulted. I don’t hold it against the government. I don’t think the Iraqi press corps as a whole is terrible. And so, the guy wanted to get on TV and he did. I don’t know what his beef is. But whatever it is I’m sure somebody will hear it.”
