Shoe throwing Iraqi journalist says he would it again even if it cost his life

The journalist, Muntadhar al-Zeidi, told a Swiss television station that, after being mistreated in Iraqi custody for two days after he threw his shoes at President George W. Bush last Dec. 14, a judge asked him whether he regretted the gesture. "I told the judge only one thing: if the hands of the clock could go back I would do the same act even if it cost my life," al-Zeidi said, speaking through a translator.
