"Just days after releasing its new video, Invisible Children -- the U.S.-based NGO behind the phenomenally successful "Kony 2012" campaign -- has yet again found itself in the midst of controversy over a U.S. diplomatic cable released last year by WikiLeaks, which reports that the group cooperated with the Ugandan military to facilitate the arrest of a former child soldier who was allegedly involved in the formation of a new rebel group."

"First, I’d point out how a good portion of the video is nothing but self aggrandizement. “We did this,” “we did that,” “we’re so great but we still need help!” Secondly, the video’s narrator is seen talking about Kony to his child. He wanted to show off that even a child can recognize that Kony is evil. There’s one problem with the way he goes about it: he out right calls Kony “the bad guy” before telling his son anything else. If you know anything about children, you know that they are easily impressionable, especially from their own parents. Third, they constantly vier off from some great story or explination to further say ”Invisible Children wants to stop these atrocities.” This compelling witness Jacob is never allowed to tell a story..."

Very good article written in a very understandable way, uses the most common question seen on twitter and answers them in a dialogue through which the author clarifies certain aspects of this mediatic campaing. Very interesting breakdown of the financial situation of the organization and its expenses... where does all of the money go?!

Guest post: Joseph Kony is not in Uganda (and other complicated things) - By Michael Wilkerson

Guest post: Joseph Kony is not in Uganda (and other complicated things) - By Michael Wilkerson | Kony 2012- Digging Deeper... | Scoop.it

"To call the campaign a misrepresentation is an understatement. While it draws attention to the fact that Kony, indicted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court in 2005, is still on the loose, its portrayal of his alleged crimes in Northern Uganda are from a bygone era. At the height of the war between especially 1999 and 2004, large hordes of children took refuge on the streets of Gulu town to escape the horrors of abduction and brutal conscription to the ranks of the LRA. Today most of these children are semi-adults. Many are still on the streets unemployed. Gulu has the highest numbers of child prostitutes in Uganda. It also has one of the highest rates of HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis."
