Where is Iraq?

Well, it turns out that this item:

Secretary of State Colin Powell recently was approached by an Iraqi newspaper reporter and accusingly asked "Isn't it true that only 13 percent of young Americans can locate Iraq on a map?" Secretary Powell stopped, turned, and stated "Yes, it's true. But, unfortunately for you, all 13 percent are Marines."

is not true. Sorry about that. I got it from a friend at the WSJ and now that I think about it, I should have known better.
