Ali Abdullah Saleh
Yemen’s former dictator, Ali Abdullah Saleh recently returned to the country’s capital Sana’a in order to open a museum about himself. Undeterred by the revolt that toppled him last year, in which demonstrators chanted “Saleh, leave, all the people hate you,” the ex-leader has decided to affirm his place in the country’s history through displays of his personal possessions.
Ali Abdullah Saleh, the President of Yemen, recently announced that he would not seek re-election in 2013. That is extremely generous of him; after all, he has only been in power for the last thirty-one years.
