Which Country Is Not Like the Others?

WHICH COUNTRY IS NOT LIKE THE OTHERS?…. Via Laura Rozen, here’s a blast from the fairly recent past: a November 2001 map from the State Department showing where al-Qaeda is active. I’ve cropped it down to the Middle East, and as you can see, virtually the entire area is awash in al-Qaeda activity.

With one prominent exception. Can you name the one major country in the entire Middle East that al-Qaeda was unable to operate in?
