Skip to comments.Clinton hopes for improved drones to find Kony (a leak?)

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday she hopes drones will soon be able to see through jungle cover so they can locate warlord Joseph Kony.
Clinton made the remark in Uganda as she watched a small U.S.-made drone that the Ugandan military uses in Somalia to fight al-Qaida-linked militants.
The U.S. last year sent 100 special forces advisers to Central Africa to help hunt Kony, the leader of the Lord's Resistance Army, a band of jungle-roaming militants known for kidnapping children, taking girls as sex slaves and disfiguring victims. Ugandan forces are at the forefront in the hunt for Kony, whose campaign of terror originated in Uganda but who is now elsewhere in central Africa.

Sounds like a bit of rope-a-dope, Clinton style, to me. The Hildabeast can’t possibly be so backwardly ignorant about our “observation” capabilities as the story implies. I’m guessing it’s part of an effort to “herd “ Kony. If he believes we can’t see him in the trees then he’s likely to spend more time there. That might make it easier to set a trap for him. So far he’s been clever at being “random” but if he can be encouraged to develop a few habits then he’s susceptible to a trap. Been there/done that and it can work nicely.-——by the way, did I say I’m not holding my breath while this bunch tries to do the deal?
Good thoughts. And no, I don’t think you did say you weren’t holding your breath. Smart person. Thanks for the perspective.
