And Now for Obama's Ugandan Military Adventure

• CATO.Org

Friday afternoon, in a letter to Speaker John Boehner, President Obama announced that he'll be deploying 100 combat-ready U.S. soldiers, mostly special forces operators, to Uganda, South Sudan, the Central African Republic, and the Congo.

So much for Dinesh D'Souza's pet theory that "Kenyan anti-colonialism" is the secret motivation behind everything the president does.

The soldiers' mission is to help Ugandan forces round up the so-called Lord's Resistance Army, a group that few Americans had heard of before last week.

The LRA, a grotesque death-cult led by Joseph Kony, a self-proclaimed "spokesperson" for God, has, as Obama put it, "murdered, raped and kidnapped tens of thousands of men, women and children in central Africa" over the last 20 years.
 
 
 "The LRA is surely a horrible bunch, but, equally surely, they're no threat to American national security."
