Author’s note: The aid group Invisible Children, whose work is featured in this 2011 post, has launched a very effective viral video and Twitter campaign (#Kony2012) aimed at mustering support for the international military campaign to hunt and capture or kill Joseph Kony, the leader of the murderous Lord’s Resistance Army rebel group hiding out in Congo and Central African Republic. I will discuss the wisdom of Invisible Children’s campaign in coming days.

    INVISIBLE CHILDREN’S ‘LRA CRISIS TRACKING SYSTEM’ IS A SCAM

    Breaking News! 18/Mar/2012. A whistle blower has just come forth. An international aid worker in the Congo region, Jean Claude Milongo of CARITAS, told IRIN (Integrated Regional Information Networks of the United Nations) that, Invisible Children’s information gathering system (lracrisistracker.com) was intentionally skewed towards increasing and misrepresenting the number of incidents of LRA attacks. This data of false information that inflated and exaggerated LRA attacks is what lobbyists used in pushing and ushering the US – LRA bill in congress. Which eventually was the corner stone for Washington sending 100 USA troops to Central Africa.
