There have been some possibly valid concerns raised about the method proposed in the now famous viral video. I'd link to the video, but I bet you've already seen it. If you haven't, you likely will very very soon.

How does Invisible Children use the money it raises? Is most of it going to action or is too much going to administration? I'm sure time and investigation will tell.

Invisible Children seems to be calling for U.S. troops to be sent into Africa to go after one of many problems. Is this a good precedent?

I am concerned that there are entities with agendas that may lead them to target such a powerful and unorthodox attempt to use media to sway opinion. My conclusion is, whether this is the best way to do it or not, Kony must be stopped in 2012.

Here are some places to start to read about the issue:
