A former senior Pentagon official told radio talk-show host Glenn Beck where to find the shocking truth about billionaire George Soros influence on President Obamas decision to deploy U.S. troops to Uganda as he directed Becks listeners to WND

I stay updated on the headlines on my smartphone while sitting at red lights and in line at the bank. I’ve probably read every news story for the last 6 or 7 years.
Never heard of Kony.
Kony is an animal but his best days are well behind him and he is more of a local irritant than anything these days. He’s certainly no threat to the world or USA.
the ICG would like us to think he’s the next Bin Laden in the making but in reality he has no money and only a small band of loyal supporters consisting of 20 or 30 dead enders.
In my opinion this is really a matter of getting us involved to protect the interests of Soros and his pals because the Ugandan government can’t do it for him.
The video seems to appeal to sincere Christians. I never watched it but I noticed that several college kids I know did and re posted it.
I first heard of it when my 22 y.o. niece posted something about it on FB. That was just before I saw it mentioned here on FR. I only watched the first minute or so of it, and still haven’t watched the whole thing.
Yea, soros and co. have been targeting our youth for some time.
Jerry Boykin is a man’s man. He scrubs his toilet with Chuck Norris’s beard.
Bump for later
Yeah, we know about Soros' definition of transparency. Follow the money.
For some just life is hard enough to cntrol and Dem politicians count on them remaining ignorant due to their constituents’ inability to delve deeper than work, TV, and beer.

What does that have to do with the story?
No one (including myself) could figure out why in the world we were sending 100 troops into Uganda. Especially right after the unconstitutional use of our troops in Libya. It seems the pieces are lining up.
I think this played a huge part into why troops were sent into Uganda. I think someone saw the Invisible Children thing as an opportunity and political expediency.
IF I were to put forward a conspiracy theory, mine would look something like this:
Obama has been struggling with the youth vote. Kony2012 pretty much promoted Obama as a hero for sending in these troops. This video has gone viral through what avenues and among what age groups? The avenue is twitter and Facebook rallying primarily (or initially) college age “the youth vote.” My conspiracy theory would say Kony is captured or killed around September or October 2012. What a way to rally the youth vote.
Who has access to all of the sign ups that are happening through the IC website? I have no idea, there isn’t a privacy statement stating who has or who will have access to this information. IC may be completely genuine in their intentions and motivations. But that doesn’t mean those around them (in the political sphere) have the same motivations. You can have a good heart but still be naive to think everyone that is helping you shares your compassion.
IC is a good emotional film. But it is not lacking in politics. It appears to be apolitical but it is not. I’m no Romney supporter (if he or Santorum gets the GOP nomination I’m probably voting Gary Johnson) but watch the film again. It has only the highest praise for the current president. Then they talk about crossing political bridges and whatnot. While talking about this they show a Romney sign and for some reason (because this isn’t supposed to be a political film) it flashes “Flip-Flopper” across the sign. Really? Romney is a flip-flopper but what does that have ANYTHING to do with Uganda, Kony or their viral campaign. Why is that in this movie? That was a HUGE red light for me and made question (if not IC’s motivations) the motivations of those advising them. And there are $45 million tax payer dollars going to their cause. A small price to pay for the biggest viral video in history.
I would suggest this is more guerrilla marketing than viral video. Viral video suggests something organic. I’m pretty certain Rebecca Black didn’t have a $9 million dollar budget in 2011 and legislation providing her with an additional $45 million dollars in 2012.
