The Iraqi journalist gained global fame when he hurled his shoes at Bush during
a Baghdad news conference with the then Iraqi prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki,
in December 2008.
Bush was not injured, while al-Zaidi was sentenced to three years in prison. He served nine months of the term before moving to Beirut.
Now, Zaidi is back in Baghdad and running against corruption, according to posts on his Twitter account.
