As for your comments, Peter (for some reason I can't reply under your comment today so I respond here), I largely agree with what you are saying. I guess what it comes down to with Invisible Children is that I don't trust them. The biggest reason I don't trust them is that they can't have spent time up in northern Uganda and not figured out the larger picture of the story - so why do they present it so simplified? Why do they somehow deceive their audience?
Is it for the greater good that they think will come out of their campaign? But I highly doubt it would be a greater good. Did killing Osama bin Laden make a huge impact in Afghanistan? I'm not convinced. A greater good for Uganda might be to encourage them to vote Museveni out of office in the next election that I'm sure he will find some way to be in even though his original term limit has long run out. I don't know. But I think the reaction of Ugandans is the most telling to pay attention to. And most of them seem to be angry.
