TheDailyBeast: Prostitutes in Colombia and More Embarrassing Secret Service Moments

George W. Bush Shoe Attack

President George W. Bush’s final visit to Iraq in December 2008 was interrupted when an Iraqi journalist threw a pair of shoes at him during a speech by the president. The Secret Service faced extra scrutiny because the attacker was able to throw two shoes at the president, one at a time, and Bush was forced to dodge them both. Also, agents did not usher the president from the room. Of course, the Secret Service agents made it to Bush’s side within six seconds of the initial throwing, and the agency claims it followed all procedures during the incident.
