…I submit the latest from Ted Rall (click here for larger image) :

I will leave aside the weak argumentation about the lack of importance of Afghanistan to the fight against al-Qaeda (however, who the hell cares where Bin Laden was physically on 9/11/01?? Wow, great argument Ted…), but will take issue with his claim at the end that Pakistan had a female President.

Here is a list of past Presidents in Pakistan. Maybe I am missing something, but I don’t see any women. Perhaps Ted was referring to Benazir Bhutto, who was elected Prime Minister in 1988 and again in 1993. In either case the point is worthless.
