    had no idea there were countries like Iran and Iraq.  Not one class I ever had in school had us putting names on a map or reading any kind of middle east history.  When I took a college level class on the History of the Middle East I thought I knew a little bit.  Well, what I knew was a very, very little bit.

    Americans are kept ignorant of geography on purpose.  It's one of those things that the little people don't really "need to know."  Look at your high school, is there a Geography class?

    On the other hand, I'm lucky enough to live in a family of map readers, we talk geography for fun around the table and they always can run circles around me.

    The changes that we've made are the changes we promised. That's what you should expect from a President. Barack Hussein Obama
