Its bad enough that many Americans know so little about the rest of the world, but you kind of expect someone on the House Foreign Affairs Committee in Washington to be a teensy bit more informed on the subject. Unfortunately, that aint happenin in the case of freshman congressman Tom Marino (R-PA), who apparently landed a seat on the prestigious committee despite not even having access to a map. In an interview with the Scranton Times-Tribune, Marino criticized Obamas Libya policy, asking, "Where does it stop? Do we go into Africa next?" (our emphasis). Rep. Marino, here is a map of Africa. Looks like youll need it. Note the brownish country near the top of the map. Hope this helps.
