"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

I can't comment over at Gregory's blog, so I will here: I don't want to be dense about it, but there is a bit of a North Africa/SSA problem, no? I don't know how Africom views the continent, but if they treat it like anyone else I've ever met, Libya is "not Africa." Certainly our intervention in Libya has made many of the (SSA) Africans I know suspicious -- but I wonder if there's a myopia of very basic proportions here, in that many policy-makers are still in the "MENA" frame of mind? I have no idea, just asking.
