Why is Muntader al-Zaidi so Revered by the Liberal Blogosphere?

As would be expected, Muntader al-Zaidi, the Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at President Bush during a press conference in Iraq on Sunday, is being extolled as a hero by the Leftwing blogosphere.

However, it should be noted that Mr. al-Zaidi was once head of the student union under Saddam Hussein. [He was also a fellow Baathist] Another individual to head the National Students Union in Iraq was a fellow by the name of Umar Sabawi Ibrahim al-Hasan al-Tikriti. Mr. al-Tikriti, who was also the head of Saddam Hussein's Fedayeen, allegedly provided support for the Iraqi insurgency. A warrant for his arrest was issued by the Central Criminal Court of Iraq in March of 2005.

What's more, Mr. Al-Zaidi - the notorious shoe thrower - had previously been detained in November of 2007 for two weeks after videotaping the scene of an improvised explosive device that targeted an American Humvee. Why they released him from detention is anyone's guess.

Nevertheless, in spite of Mr. al-Zaidi's appaling resume, the Liberal blogosphere is celebrating his shoe throwing heroics. Because in the eyes of the Liberal blogosphere, it is not the American troops fighting in Iraq who are the true heroes, but rather the Saddam Hussein loyalists and those who murder our troops, who are the real heroes.

Surprise, surprise, surprise................

Have you heard there are Iraqis who are mortified by this mans actions anywhere in the media? The pro-Sadr, pro-terror people are cheering and that is ALL you see on the MSM and Fox...Don't let the media convince you everyone in Iraq is happy about what happened. That's why so many people think everyone is against us, they don't see the reports from those who consider Bush a hero, that doesn't fit their agenda. Many journalists said the act reflected poorly on them. Others-it's humiliating, are mortified.

"This guy has embarrassed the people of his country one person said: I had to take two Valiums, said pharmacist Abu Ali, who called the shoe-throwing an affront to his people's dignity. across the Arab world the reaction was mixed. In Iraq, many journalists said the act reflected poorly on them, and some Iraqis who consider Bush a hero for ousting Hussein were mortified. AND: For anyone to behave that way ... is just too humiliating and unbelievable," said Tariq Harb, a leading Iraqi lawyer. He said there are laws against assaulting a foreign leader who is a guest in Iraq that would apply in Zeidi's case.",0,5447795.story
