It is still really sad to see that the White House Office of the Press Secretary DOES NOT understand Geography.......nor the Washington Bureau Chief for the Chicago Sun-Times. The last time I heard Missouri DID NOT HAVE a President, especially one called URIBE.

No wonder why the USA is allways looked upon as the "ugly american" wherever we go......

A nation's President comes to town and we post the news as if he was from Missouri.....if you did not know there is s big difference between COLUMBIA AND COLOMBIA. I find this insulting and embarrasing!!! Shame on you.

Makes you wonder what you people do with the rest of the world......

my mistake, i corrected the spelling. thanks for your note.
