Nice Find

Hard to know who to give credit to for this one (perhaps the Village Voice), but someone gets kudos for finding this State Department document entitled The Network of Terrorism. It was posted on the U.S. State Department website in November 2001.

Anyway, on page 12 of that document, we find a list of countries — and a map — of "Countries Where al Qaeda Has Operated"

Anyone notice what country isn’t on the list and map? Here’s the complete list: COUNTRIES WHERE AL QAEDA HAS OPERATED (according to the U.S. State Department – November 2001):
