President Obama on Thursday came out in support of an online film aimed at bringing Joseph Kony, the Ugandan leader of the violent, child-recruiting Lord’s Resistance Army, to justice. The film has gone viral, with 48 million views on YouTube and Vimeo—most of them in the past couple of days. Invisible Children, the charity that made the film, supported a bill to bring peace to northern Uganda, and the Obama administration has reaffirmed their support of the bill. But there has also been some criticism of Invisible Children, with charges of oversimplification and manipulating facts.
