Crisis in Congo: film, Blue Hill Oct 30

I was just listening to a podcast on Sibel Edmonds’s Boiling Frog’s Post blog about AFRICOM and the earlier JSOC activities in Africa: http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/2013/10/16/empire-power-and-people-with-andrew-gavin-marshall-episode-92/ (it’s subscriber only, but if you want to see beyond what Amy Goodman has to offer, it’s worth the price). The U.S. contributed to the conditions that led to the Rwandan genocide and spread of violence into Zaire. It would be interesting to see whether that aspect of U.S. policies is covered.
