    That guy really does not have much clue about Imran Khan does he ?

    "Khan may have made his fortune and name in the British tabloids as a soccer star and international playboy of the London salons, a lifestyle that had strong affinities with the West rather than the madrassas."

    He was a very good Cricket Player. IIRC he was known as being a devout Muslim, so I dont think that is something he's invented for a political career as the tone of the article suggests.

    "His mischaracterization, based on a lie,"

    Yah, right, maybe "VDH" should check his facts before he leaps to attack. There is a considerable body of evidence that backs up the Newsweek article and it certainly wasn't the first time that story cropped up.

    "But now he is back in Pakistan crafting a political career and catering to the Islamists, even though religious extremism is antithetical to what allowed him to succeed and prosper abroad."

    I very much doubt that Kahn is promoting religious extremism for that and two other important reasons. As I said he had a rep as a devout Muslim, and he is known to have actively promoted peace and tolerance (particularly between India and Pakistan).
