Topic: Georgian sentenced to life for Bush grenade attack
TBILISI (Reuters) - A man who tried to blow up U.S. President George W. Bush with a grenade in the former Soviet state of Georgia last year was sentenced to life imprisonment on Wednesday, a court said.
Vladimir Arutunyan, a Tbilisi resident, threw the grenade at Bush while the president was addressing a crowd in the main square of the Georgian capital last May.
U.S. officials said at the time the grenade, which landed within 50 meters of Bush, failed to explode because of a malfunction.

I see his promise lasted all of 2 whole days.
