Angelina Jolie Says Joseph Kony's Time Has Come
Posted on March 10, 2012Angelina Jolie has weighed in on Joseph Kony. Kony, leader of the Lord's Resistance Army, is a horrible Ugandan warlord who is responsible for brutal murders and child enslavery. Kony's crimes are not new, but he has received a great deal of attention and awareness lately because of a documentary created by Invisible Children. The goal of the documentary was to make Kony famous for his atrocities, so he would be arrested. It seems to be working as the Kony 2012 video has nearly 70 million views on YouTube. Uganda has also promised to catch Kony dead or alive.
Angelina says, "I don't think I know anyone who doesn't hate Joseph Kony. Anybody who works in the international field has been aware."
Angelina also says, "He [Kony] is an extraordinarily horrible human being. His time has come and it is lovely to see that even young people are raising up as well. "
