Pervez Musharraf, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'The last time Jon Stewart had Pervez Musharraf on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), he was the President of Pakistan.

Musharraf was in office from June 2001 until he resigned in August 2008, and he's been in self-imposed exile from Pakistan since his resignation. However, he has plans to return and run for president again in 2012.

But Stewart was more interested in the fact that Musharraf was president while a certain terrorist was holed up in Pakistan.

It was a very candid interview, and Musharraf gave some very direct answers to Stewart, who wasn't holding back in his questions.

"Why wouldn't I use him for some leverage for myself?" Musharraf asked when probed as to if he knew Osama Bin Laden was in Pakistan. The former president was adamant that he had never known and that he wouldn't have harbored him if he had.
