Last month, the video “KONY 2012” turned the world’s attention to eastern Africa and the child-soldiers of the Ugandan guerrilla group, the Lord’s Resistance Army, and its leader, Joseph Kony.
“He makes them mutilate people’s faces, and he forces them to kill their own parents.”
Now, WikiLeaks claims the San Diego-based nonprofit behind the ultra-viral film spied for the Ugandan government. The Daily Monitor has more.
“Leaked cables of secret diplomatic notes by American officials in Uganda to Washington reveal that Invisible Children, the makers of the controversial film, Kony 2012, shared intelligence information with Ugandan security operatives that led to the arrest of a number of suspected regime critics.”
Several of the leaked cables from the US former ambassador to Uganda, Steven Browning, mention the NGO. One particular cable describes the arrest of former LRA soldier Patrick Komakech in early 2009, which then set off a string of related arrests.
“Invisible Children reported that Komakech had been in Nairobi and had recently reappeared in Gulu, where he was staying with the NGO. Security organizations jumped on the tip and immediately arrested Komakech on March 5.”
Komakech was featured in several of the organization’s previous documentaries, and another group had even brought him to America to share his story. Invisible Children emailed a statement to Foreign Policy magazine explaining why they provided the Ugandan government with Komakech’s whereabouts.
"In 2009, Invisible Children was contacted by … the U.S. Embassy in Kampala regarding Patrick Komakech, a former LRA combatant who Invisible Children had been supporting ... It was brought to our attention that Mr. Komakech and a group of others were allegedly involved in activities that could be jeopardizing the lives of civilians and putting the organization and its staff at risk.”
These cables suggest Invisible Children got cozy with the Ugandan government, which has also been criticized for human rights violations against its citizens. Black Star News, an investigative newspaper based in New York which originally broke the story, explains.
“Kony2012 was viewed more than 100 million times; yet it now turns out that Invisible Children may have duped a global audience by hiding the fact that it's been working closely with the [current Ugandan President Yoweri] Museveni regime all along.”
As the Daily Monitor reports, the admission could negatively affect Invisible Children’s nonprofit status.
Fuck Joseph Kony 2012 Al-Qaeda and Mujahideen are coming for you. Presented by Al-Jazeera.
This is a song I wrote on March 9, 2012 that was inspired by the Invisible Children video (Kony 2012). Please, watch and share!

If you haven’t heard of “Kony 2012” already-- it’s the viral video that’s garnered more than 60 million views in a week. Lots of views, and a lot of controversy over what the non-profit behind the vid, Invisible Children, is doing to stop rebel violence against children in Uganda.
Here’s a clip:
“This movie expires on December 31, 2012, and its only purpose is to stop the rebel group the LRA and their leader Joseph Kony.”
Thousands are spreading word of the film via Facebook and Twitter, including celebrities like Rihanna and Oprah — celebrities the campaign was specifically targeting. But there are debates about Invisible Children -- including about what the org does with its money. KRDO explains what tax records show:
Reporter: ”Over 3.8 million bucks went to events, media campaigns and making videos like this one. Only 32% of donations went to direct services in Africa.”
White House press secretary Jay Carney has praised the campaign for raising awareness about Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army, but CBS questioned a member of Invisible Children about what it’s actually doing to help the children in Uganda.
Anchor: “Shouldn’t your goal be to make sure it changes something for the children there, not how many people see it?”
Member of Invisible Children: “Well absolutely, that’s the point. I mean our goals are two-fold.”
The video is also receiving criticism for being too vague and trying to wrap up a complex issue in only 30 minutes. A reporter for The Australian says the video evades a major fact about Joseph Kony.
“Unfortunately, it looks like meddlesome details, like where Kony actually is, are not important enough for Invisible Children to make sure its audience understands...Only once, at 15:01 in the movie, is the fact that the LRA is no longer in Uganda mentioned, and only in passing.”
And the Winnepeg Free Press says people should be more aware of an issue before they share it online and pronounce their support.
“Experts agree the involvement of children in the LRA has been vastly exaggerated. Studies show the prevalence of child soldiers in the LRA has been consistently over-reported.”
In response to the backlash, Invisible Children made a “Critiques” page on its site. It addresses accusations about finances -— arguing one third of funds are spent on operating programs on the ground in LRA-affected areas. The org also addresses the accusation that the video is ambiguous.
“Invisible Children has sought to explain the conflict in an easily understandable format, focusing on the core attributes of LRA leadership that infringe upon the most basic of human rights. In a 30-minute film, however, many nuances of the 26-year conflict are admittedly lost or overlooked.”
And, not everyone is against Invisible Children’s message. A Forbes contributor says the video is so influential that it will lead politicians to act.
“Through a cocktail of video, social media, and concrete action steps, millions of people can be brought together as one to express outrage and demand that their governments act.”
Kony is wanted by the International Criminal Court on 33 separate criminal charges, including charges of crimes against humanity.
We need to stop the injustice arrest Joseph Kony NOW
Just because Kony hasn't been seen for over 6 years it does not mean he is not still active or influential.

A documentary film released online is gaining worldwide attention. With more than 9 million views on YouTube and Vimeo in just two weeks, the viral film aims to thrust an African military rebel leader onto the public stage.
“This movie expires on December 31st 2012. And its only purpose is to stop the rebel group - the L.R.A., and their leader Joseph Kony. And I’m about to tell you exactly how we’re going to do it.”
The man behind the film — Jason Russell, is looking to raise awareness of the Lord’s Resistance Army’s rise to power in Uganda. Independent Television News has more on the rebel group.
“Indicted by the International Criminal Court in 2006 for war crimes including recruiting child soldiers and sex slaves, the head of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) has since evaded capture.”
TIME reports on the scale of the L.A.R.’s alleged crimes:
“Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army began its violent rise in 1986, and the group is believed to have abducted 66,000 children and displaced over two million people, turning young boys into child soldiers, younger girls into sex slaves …”
The Toronto Star says the filmmaker is involved in the charity Invisible Children — which plans to boost awareness of the doc through a grassroots campaign.
“The movement also hopes to ‘Cover the Night’ in cities around the world on April 20 in an old-school campaign to plaster places such as Toronto with posters, stickers and banners. The poster … shows Kony alongside Osama bin Laden and Adolf Hitler.”
A-list celebrities are coming out in support of the campaign. Pop singer Rhianna tweeted to her 14 million followers the trending hashtag #KONY2012 and
“PLEASE go to Invisiblechildren**** Even if its 10 minutes... Trust me, you NEED to know about this!”
TechCrunch notes: the viral nature of the video is yet another example of the power shift from legacy media to the internet.
“While once the mainstream media had to get involved, now the combined power of millions through the Internet can have an even bigger impact. This is another coming of age moment for YouTube, for Twitter, and for society. It’s time to use our clicks to take a stand.”
