You already know what I think about the Invisible Children organization that runs the KONY 2012 campaign.
The question that kept nagging me was why the Know Kony guys went after an exiled warlord but paid no attention to the resident dictator who is ruining Uganda?
We now know the answer, thanks to WikiLeaks. Invisible Children is a spy asset for the Ugandan government!
Well…at minimum, the Know Konyites helped the Ugandan government locate and capture Patrick Komakech, a member of a relatively new Ugandan government resistance group called the People’s Patriotic Front (PPF).
You may call the Invisible Children’s actions “mission-creep,” but I call that mess acting like a government spook.
Big up to Black Star News for breaking the story and to Foreign Policy for picking it up…
