In Cairo, where Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was on a historic visit this week amid protest. Four men hurled shoes at Ahmadinejad as he shook hands with supporters.
It's considered one of the biggest insults in the Muslim world. This, on the first visit by an Iranian head of state to Cairo in 30 years.
CNN's Reza Sayah is covering the story. Erin Burnett asked him what punishment the men will get?
You know, I was never so proud of President Bush 43 as I was the day he ducked that shoe at close range. I thought, "That's incredible! Our President has reflexes like a cat!" Maybe absence makes the heart grow fonder, or just the offensiveness of his part in the whole Willie Horton thing gets forgotten over time, but W, we hardly knew ye.
