Regarding #stopKony

In terms of practical approaches to apprehending Kony, since I became aware of him when we began to make The Reckoning: The Battle for the International Criminal Court in 2006, I’ve always wondered, who pays his satellite phone bill?  Where is he getting arms and ammunition?  Who is aiding and abetting him from the outside, and doesn’t the sat phone company know exactly where he is every time he turns on the phone, or even when the phone is off?  If I can locate my iPhone from my laptop, why can’t international intelligence operatives, and the U.S. army advisors on the ground in Uganda, figure out where he is?  We could find bin Laden but not Kony?  These are the questions that make me wonder what’s going on.  I have no conspiracy theory about this, but I do wonder why the issue of how Kony survives as an armed and connected warlord with backers, is never addressed.
