John Beaton If you are so determined to not see the good that Kony 2012 has brought than nothing I say will change your mind. I am sure it was just a coincidence that Invisible Children's CEO, Ben Keesey was invited to a White House panel on atrocities the same day as that announcement.
John Beaton Do you really believe he would have bothered to make a public announcement about it without pressure from Kony 2012 and it's supporters? His announcement was a direct result from that campaigning. Does this look like slacktivism to you? http://www.theresolve.org/blog/archives/3071032749
John Beaton Are you implying that the so-called "slacktivism" that resulted from Kony 2012 had no impact? http://blog.invisiblechildren.com/2012/04/23/obama-extends-deployment-of-u-s-advisers-in-lra-affected-region/ I beg to differ.
