Kony 2012 on NPR

A March 8 report by Alan Greenblatt is entitled Joseph Kony Is Infamous — But Will He Be Caught? Greenblatt describes the complexities that would be involved in following the goals espoused in Kony 2012: bringing Joesph Kony to justice. The United States has already deployed 100 military personnel to pursue a policy of killing or capturing the LRA leader. His whereabouts are unknown and his group is splintered along the borders of Uganda with other unstable neighbors, including South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

In a second report on Morning Edition, Steve Inskeep speaks with Ugandan journalist Barbara Among. In Viral Video Educates World on Ugandan Warlord, Ms. Among said that she welcomes the attention to the Uganda's recent history, but she also describes in more detail the complexities that would arise from bringing Kony to justice during a period when most Ugandans are focused on reconciliation.
