Kony 2012: Is This Young Ugandan A Voice Of Reason? (VIDEO, POLL)

Posted: Updated:

With the release of a new Web film by the activist filmmakers behind last week's "Kony 2012" video -- a 30-minute documentary about the murderous African warlord Joseph Kony -- debate rages on about the intentions behind the campaign and its benefit to the people of Uganda.

A host of critics surfaced last week, after "Kony 2012" logged more than 55 million page views, depicting the grotesque acts carried out by Joseph Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), who has been terrorizing Ugandans and people in Congo, the Central African Republic and South Sudan since the 1980s.

Among the critics, a young Ugandan woman took to YouTube to express her disapproval of the film and it's misleading depiction of Kony's impact on her family's home.
