Also, if Maggie really wants to be Mac's go-to person on Africa, she should probably know that Djibouti is a country and where it is. Sadly, I know very little about Africa, yet I still know where Djibouti is. (Though, admittedly, I couldn't locate Uganda on a map.)
I thought it was a particularly glaring contradiction since just a couple of episodes back Maggie gave one of those typical Sorkin infodumps about Africa to convince Mac that she was serious about going and had become an expert on the subject, and yet now she doesn't even know the basic regional geography.
