    <p>President Obama is committing more military resources, including aircraft and special operations forces, to the hunt for notorious African warlord Joseph Kony.</p> <p>Early Monday, the White House confirmed a Washington Post report that the U.S. was sending "associated support personnel," and a "limited number" of CV-22 Osprey aircraft to assist local forces in their long-running battle against Kony's Lord's Resistance Army, or LRA. Obama sent about 100 U.S. troops to help the African forces in 2011.</p>

    Proof Positive - In My Opinion True Source Found For "Innocence of Muslims." (Obama)This is a Youtube video produced by user Montagraph who speculated that "Innocence of Muslims" was a false flag op. So did I. He has done a lot of work tracing numerous websites connected to the original uploading of the now famous video. His narrative starts out very slow but give it a chance. He does explain it all in detail and has sourced it all with URLs below his vid. Montagraph declines to say that his evidence is definitive so you be the judge. The internet...

    One of the co-founders of Invisible Children, the San Diego-based charity which is campaigning for the arrest of Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony, has been hospitalised after police said he was detained for being naked and masturbating in public. Jason Russell, 33, was picked up by police in San Diego at around 11.30am on Thursday after receiving numerous calls from the public about a man vandalising cars, being apparently under the influence of a substance and making sexual gestures while wearing only his underwear. According to local TV station NBC, San Diego police spokeswoman Lieutenant Andra Brown told a press conference...

  • "Is Kony 2012 a Psy-Op to get Obama 2012 elected?"

    This is from Fire Dog Lake Today I posted a diary about Black Agenda Report's new article, Social Media Scam Alert: Top Ten Ways to Tell Kony (2012) is PhonyWhile writing my last comment, something gelled in my mind. It had bothered me that the Kony 2012 video somehow believed that 100 US servicemen would get the job done. That seems too little, if you have a deadline of 1 year, and your target supposedly commands 30,000 armed militants. But it also seems way to little to constitute a serious escalation of US involvement in Africa (never mind whether us...

    Defense Secretary Leon Panetta's testimony asserting that the United Nations and NATO have supreme authority over the actions of the United States military, words which effectively declare Congress a ceremonial relic, have prompted Congressman Walter Jones to introduce a resolution that re-affirms such behavior as an "impeachable high crime and misdemeanor" under the Constitution. During a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing yesterday, Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey brazenly admitted that their authority comes not from the U.S. Constitution, but that the United States is subservient to and takes its marching orders from the United Nations...

    The Kony 2012 scam has been revealed and now it is time to look at Obama’s motivation to use American blood and treasure to wage war in Uganda even though Kony has not been seen for six years, is believed to be dead and American interests do not warrant this war. Follow the money. Where George Soros invests, U.S. taxpayer dollars follow. UGANDA: Recall that we recently learned U.S. taxpayer dollars were spent on the writing of Africa’s new Constitution. The obvious question is “Why”? In October 2011, WND’s Aaron Klein provided the answer [emphasis added]: Also in 2008, the...

    ...It has been revealed that indeed Invisible Children has been working with USAID, a US government agency that helps lay the groundwork for what could best be described as a modern-day imperial administrative network. It is now also revealed that Invisible Children attended the 2010 US State Department and Fortune 500 sponsored Alliance for Youth Movements (AYM) summit in London. AYM (also called Movements.org) it was reported, played a central role in preparing armies of US State Department funded, trained, and equipped activists to carry out the so-called "Arab Spring" years in advance. Much like KONY 2012, the Arab Spring...

    PITTSBURGH -- Kony 2012 has become the most viral video in history, topping 100 million views in six days, but the video about Ugandan rebel leader Joseph Kony has also led to a backlash against the organization behind the 30-minute documentary. There's no doubt Kony is a bad man, killing tens of thousands of people, and using a child army to displace more than a million others. Critics are now focusing on the nonprofit organization Invisible Children, which produced the documentary. The charity is also being scrutinized for what they do with the money they raise. NBC is reporting that...

    Obama’s billionaire friend has interests in African country’s oilTEL AVIV — An influential “crisis management organization” that boasts billionaire George Soros as a member of its executive board recently recommended the U.S. deploy a special advisory military team to Uganda to help with operations and run an intelligence platform. The president-emeritus of that organization, the International Crisis Group, is the principal author of Responsibility to Protect, the military doctrine used by Obama to justify the U.S.-led NATO campaign in Libya. Soros’ own Open Society Institute is one of only three nongovernmental funders of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect,...

    Chris Duane is on to something here. Kony 2012 has become an overnight YouTube sensation with over 70,000,000 downloads in a matter of days. The video describes the exploitation of young children by Joseph Kony, a warlord in Uganda. However, it is rumored that Kony is no longer present there. The organization promoting this production has spent big bucks on it. They are known for taking in lots of money for worthy African Child protection efforts, but paying out relatively little for the purpose. Chris believes the purpose of this 30 minute short video may be worse than anyone thinks....

    The chief executive of a group that produced a wildly popular video about African warlord Joseph Kony answered critics Monday, defending its tactics and spending practices. "I understand why a lot of people are wondering, 'Is this just some slick, kind of fly-by-night, slacktivist thing?' when actually it's not at all," said Ben Keesey of Invisible Children. "It's connected to a really deep, thoughtful, very intentional and strategic campaign." In an online video that runs more than eight minutes, Keesey acknowledges the sting of criticism since Invisible Children released the video "Kony 2012" last week, becoming an Internet sensation with...

Backdrop: The powerful YouTube upload is by Invisible Children, a non-profit organization seeking to end Joseph Kony's use of children as soldiers and sex slaves in his Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), a paramilitary religious group that has been active throughout Central Africa since 1987. Invisible Children is particularly concerned with Northern Uganda, where Kony has been fighting an ethnic nationalist war against the central government's...

    If you had any lingering doubts about the power of the Web to spread a message, consider the astonishing impact of "Kony 2012." Over the past 48 hours, it would have been all but impossible to log into Facebook or Twitter and not see someone pointing to a stirring 30-minute video about Joseph Kony, a once-obscure Ugandan rebel leader alleged to have abducted, abused and killed thousands of children for more than two decades. The goal is simple enough: Make Kony's a household name to create a groundswell of outrage that would pressure governments to demand his arrest. This is...

    LIRA, Uganda (Reuters) - Sophia Apio dared not utter a sound as Ugandan rebels sliced off her lips and ears with a razor blade. They had threatened to hack her to death with machetes if she cried. Apio, her husband Ojede and six others were captured by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) while scavenging for food in northern Uganda, where a 17-year-old war has forced about 1.5 million people to flee their homes. Shadowy LRA rebels led by Joseph Kony, a former altar boy turned self-proclaimed mystic, typically target civilians in their brutal war against the government. snip "Then he...
