Sure, this happened – but was it enough?

“Getting Kony Was Already A Policy

The capture or killing of Kony is already official U.S. policy. Prodded by Invisible Children and other human rights groups, Congress in 2010 passed a law requiring the president to devise a strategy to eliminate the LRA.

Last October, President Obama detailed the administration’s plans for doing so, including the announcement that 100 U.S. troops would be deployed to Uganda to provide intelligence and logistical support.

There are still snags. The LRA now roams through densely forested land along the borders of South Sudan, the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The U.S. is trying to work with all those armies, but they have failed to come together in an organized or effective way, says Mark Schneider, a former Peace Corps director who is now with the International Crisis Group, which supports conflict-prevention efforts.

Congo’s security forces have been wary of letting Ugandan fighters into their country to come after the LRA.

“The question about how you manage to close in or surround the LRA when you still don’t have full cooperation from the Congolese military raises a serious concern,” Schneider says. “They continue to pose obstacles to Ugandan forces.”
