Rwandan warlord Bosco Ntaganda's implausible surrender (audio/mpeg 2.1MB) - by KPFA Evening News, Ann Garrison, 04.23.2013
Rwandan warlord Bosco Ntaganda's surrender at the U.S. Embassy in Kigali, Rwanda, was reported by media outlets all over the world on Monday, 03.18.2013, although most described Ntaganda as a "Congolese rebel." Rwandan American Charles Kambanda, a law professor at St. John's University-New York City, and former professor at the National University of Rwanda, told KPFA that the U.S. Embassy is so heavily fortified, and guarded by Rwandan police, that this story is totally implausible.

Obama's State Department on the defensive re Rwanda's undeclared war in Congo (audio/mpeg 1.7MB) - by KPFA Weekend News/Ann Garrison
On Tuesday, 12.11.2012, the House Foreign Affairs Committee held a hearing on the eastern Congo "conflict." The "conflict" would have to be called a war if the press, Congress and the rest would stop calling the M23 "Congo rebels" and acknowledge that Rwandan Defense Minister James Kabarebe, who answers to Rwandan President Paul Kagame, is commanding them. The "eastern Congo conflict" sounds less serious and worthy of the world's attention than a war. Though M23 were still referred to as "C...
