Shoe Pitcher Burned With Cigarettes Until Contrite

Bush shoe-thrower tortured into writing letter of apology

"The Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at George Bush was tortured into writing a letter of apology, his brother said today.
Muntazer al-Zaidi was wrestled to the ground after throwing his shoes during a news conference held by the US president and the Iraqi prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki, on 14 December.
The investigating judge in the case said last week that Zaidi, who will stand trial on 31 December, was beaten around the face and eyes. Zaidi's brother, Uday, said the journalist suffered worse injuries, including a missing tooth and cigarette burns to his ears, and would sue."

Yeah, but they didn't shoot the guy, right? We're supposed to feel good about that.

So they tortured him. That's ok - just ask Cheney.
