Giant ‘Bush Shoe' Removed From Tikrit and Destroyed
- By: Peter TannerFeb 2, 2009
Just a day after a monument was unveiled in the Iraqi town of Tikrit to commemorate the throwing of a shoe at former president Bush, the giant shoe has been taken down and destroyed. The shoe was on the grounds of an orphanage and the head of the orphanage was told to take the shoe down by the Salaheddin Provincial Joint Coordination Centre. As the shoe monument was located at an orphanage, sources say that the local government did not want to mix politics with children.
