Enlightening little game where you try to place MidEast country names on a map. Find out how deficient your education is! I definitely did better in the Middle East than in northern Africa (because we have deployed less troops there?). And it goes without saying that you shouldn’t cheat. The game is part of a site on teaching about the war.

To further refine one’s sense of MidEast geography, I enjoyed this New Yorker article on finding Osama by Jane Mayer. Helpful in understanding where Osama is thought to be and the complicated relationship the U.S. has with Pakistan.
