Where's West Africa?

Heh heh. CNN scored Michelle Bachmann today for implying that maybe
she doesn't know Libya's in Africa:

"Now with the president, he put us in Libya. He is now putting us in
Africa. We already were stretched too thin, and he put our special
operations forces in Africa."

CNN then showed a map of Africa with both Libya and Uganda
highlighted. Next came their explanation that "Libya is in North
Africa, and Uganda is in West Africa."

Call me old-fashioned, but the last time I looked, which was at CNN's
own map,  Uganda was in "East [or conceivably "Central"] Africa"
Africa"), not "West Africa."
