Al-Zaidi/Shoe Trial postponed! indefinitely

The progressive and peace community needs to come up with a response to this travesty of justice. We need to see that Muntadhar Al-Zaidi is safe. We need to understand if our President and Iraq Prime Minister Maliki encouraged and condoned torture, based on free speech directed at them. I am very angry with the recent statements from Laura Bush, which were a clever way for George Bush to cue Iraq that the Bush administration will not be advocating or protecting Al-Zaidi. Shame on George Bush. Shame on Laura Bush.
