Lord's Resistance Army

Who? The Lord's Resistance Army? What's that? Oh wait, isn't that some rebel outfit in Africa? Haven't heard anything about them in a long time. Would that be because we have been consumed by the sexually titillating vision of TSA officers groping airline customers? Or maybe I need a new news source.

Diligent daughter put together a web page for her psych class this week. It's nominally about cultural sensitivity when dealing with people traumatized by the LRA's reign of terror. To that end she included some background information about the LRA. I was surprised.

I talked to her about it and she warned me that some of the information might be a little dated, so I ran a search and found that the LRA is in the news again today, though not in any mainstream American media. Well, no surprise there. They're all wrapped up in the North Korea debacle or some celebrities latest run in with the law. Useless twits.

The US passed the Lord's Resistance Army Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-172) in May 2010. Obama had something to say about strategy last week.
