It’s a two-fer on Salon today. Laura Miller has an excellent article about the willful ignorance of Americans when it comes to foreign affairs. This has been a huge point of frustration for me for years (as regular readers can probably guess), but I certainly didn’t want the world to get our attention this way. Oh, and you don’t have to get far into the first page of the article to discover that Condoleeza Rice is really, really ignorant. Nice to have a National Security Advisor who doesn’t know the difference between Shiite and Sunni Muslims.
