MORE ON THE KONY MEETING. Last night, Sam flagged this Jeffrey Gittlemen piece about the incredible meeting between Jan Egeland, the world�s top humanitarian official, and Joseph Kony, one of the worlds most wanted war criminals. The Times (UK) article about the same meeting makes mention that the Ugandan warlord appeared to be �erratic and rambling during the meeting as if he had taken drugs.� Imagine being an unarmed diplomat meeting a man in the depths of the jungle who is part cult leader, part warlord (and among other things, accused of forcing the children he mutilates to eat their own flesh) -- and then realizing he was on drugs. Scary.
