Mingora the largest city in Pakistan's Swat Valley, that's a disputed area.

Yeah, He's talking about his Supreme3 Court pick in his weekly Internet and radio released this morning, the president called for swift Senate confirmation4 for his Supreme Court nominee5 Sonia Sotomayor. The president said pointing to Sotomayor's 17 years of experience as a federal judge as one reason he picked her.

She was appointed to the U.S. District Court, serving six years as a trial judge where she presided over hundreds of cases. And most recently, she has spent eleven years on the U.S. Court of Appeals, our nation s second highest court, grappling with some of the most difficult constitutional and legal issues we face as a nation. She has more experience on the federal bench than any incoming Supreme Court Justice in the past 100 years. Quite simply, Judge Sotomayor has a deep familiarity with our judicial6 system from almost every angle.
