The incident immediately conjured the memory of former president George W. Bush having shoes thrown at him by an outraged Iraqi journalist in 2008:

It wasn’t immediately clear what motivated the woman—who authorities have said will not be arrested—to target Clinton. The New York Daily News reports that an attendee of the event “later handed a reporter a piece of paper that was apparently thrown by the woman. It appeared to be a copy of a Department of Defense document labeled confidential and dated August 1967; it referred to an operation ‘Cynthia’ in Bolivia.”

As the Las Vegas Sun reports, Clinton’s appearance at the trade conference “was part of a cross-country tour in which Clinton is giving paid speeches to industry organizations and appearing before key Democratic Party constituents.”

In the case of President Bush, the shoe-thrower, Muntadhar al-Zaidi, said he was motivated by the death and destruction that resulted from what he called the illegal invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Though Thursday’s incident is seemingly not related, most will remember that as a senator at the time, Hillary Clinton also supported and voted to authorize that invasion.
