Kony 2012 sets the Internet on fire

A video calling for awareness about an African Warlord is setting the Internet on fire this week.  The video called Kony 2012 focuses on Ugandan Joseph Kony, leader of the Lord's Resistance Army.  Lakehead University Political Science Professor Laure Paquette says Kony is notorious for turning children into  soldiers or prostitutes and has been terrorizing Central Africa for over 20 years.  She says he's wanted by the International Criminal Court and has so far eluded capture.  Paquette says currently the U.S. has about 200 advisers in Uganda that are helping the African Country in trying to locate Kony and bring him to justice.
