It's not the sole responsibility of the US to stop Kony and what ever he is doing. We're not the only people capable of stopping it. If our forces
are there doing something else, we can't expect them to compromise what they're doing if they deem it to be more important.

It's not wrong because it's on Obama's watch, it's wrong because of the nature of the media. If our media serves as an instant intel service, what

camera feeds you no longer need forward observers...
If there's a hostage situation in a bank and the news is live streaming the swat team, the people inside could easily see what's going on and be
What about the operation to get Bin Laden? Why would we want to give away all of the operating details? Did we really have to have six documentaries

That's the stuff I'm talking about, it's not because it's Obama. It's because it's not right. If you're winning a game of cards you don't
start telling everyone that you're counting cards and show them your hand.
If our operations in Africa were finished and the data was deemed harmless I wouldn't see a problem with it. But from what I was able to read (before
the pay-wall) it seemed relevant to currently active campaigns. Sure, the locals would see what's happening. But, is there really any need to make it
the forefront of an internet article? I don't think so.
