As Obama nears the end of his 8 years in office, the African Great Lakes Trio, Museveni, Kabila-Kanambe, and Kagame are laughing as they continue in their crimes and extending their forever hold on power… Superpower America seems impotent against them, this article shows WHY…
Incredible atrocities that the New York Times (Feb. 10, 2010) termed a “Holocaust” have been happening in the Democratic Republic of Congo for years and, during the entire 8 (eight) years of Barack Obama’s administration, this holocaust has continued unabated. As President Obama’s last term draws to a close, questions should be asked and/or an assessment should be made as to WHY there hasn’t been an end to these atrocities – just visit Panzi Hospital and Benilubero.com for evidence.
One is shocked, disappointed, and saddened when one hears Americans who are officials and experts speak about today’s DRC as if they’re talking about a parallel world in which the things that the media and the people KNOW and are speaking about, these Americans are so grandly oblivious to them.
The latest case of this irreconcilable dichotomy between the reality and what American experts still “believe” and continue to advocate was exemplified by the conference that took place at the Africa Security Initiative of the Brookings Institute in Washington DC on August 15, 2016. The conference was titled “What can be done to avert the impending constitutional crisis in the Congo?”. We will come back to this.
Knowledge and elementary Logic teach that false assumptions lead to false conclusions; and, wrong intelligence, in the world of political, military, or espionage assessment, confrontation, or cooperation lead to wrong policy and wrong actions/moves that ultimately lead to defeat, to maintenance of the status quo, or to the aggravation of the situation that needed to be corrected in the first place. Do American policy makers on Africa understand this?
The American policy toward the African Great Lakes, especially toward the DRC has been totally the opposite of reality, keeping in mind that the DRC, alone, has borne, during the entire two terms of the Obama administration, the full force of the violence and atrocities in the African Great Lakes and the barely veiled plotting between the presidents of Rwanda and of the DRC both in the perpetration of this holocaust and in the occupation, by Rwanda, of the Congolese Kivu, as the Beni Lubero priest, Vincent Machozi, reported on the internet site BeniLuberoOnline, on 21 June, 2016, which led to Kagame and “Kabila” sending Rwandan troops in RDC army uniforms to assassinate him manu militari . Think about it: During the eight years of the Obama administration, NO Rwandans or Ugandans have died, gang raped, or mutilated. ONLY Congolese people.
THE EXAMPLE OF THE CONFERENCE AT THE BROOKINGS INSTITUTE
The three, from right to left, are Michael O’Hanlon, Anthony Gambino, and Thomas Perriello, experts on African Great Lakes and the DRC. Yet, their views are unreal, lies that have already been exposed, and they cover up a holocaust that media like the New York Times have already written about… In which world have they been living the last 20 years?
Let’s take a brief look at this last Brookings Institute conference: Setting aside Mr. Balumwene, the DRC ambassador to the US, the three Americans who spoke at this conference are those experts who have been in the “field” in DRC and elsewhere, and these are the people that the American leaders such as the president and the secretary of state are counting on to provide them with reality-based facts: The moderator of the conference, Michael O’Hanlon, is a defense analyst who works as the director of research in Foreign Policy at Brookings; Anthony Gambino is a former USAID mission director to the Congo; and, Thomas Perriello, a former congressman who has worked as a special envoy in many areas around the world is now the special envoy for President Obama to the African Great Lakes and the DRC.
Now, what are these three experts saying about today’s reality, truth, on the Congo which, in the end, should affect today’s US policy? When, for example, Obama became president, the assessment was that the old policy for Iraq and Afghanistan wasn’t working so a new policy was to be defined based on the reality of the moment. Yet, on the DRC, same old same old:
- “JOSEPH KABILA”: Is he a Rwandan impostor (a plant) or a Congolese citizen who did replace “his father” Laurent Kabila as president of DRC?
Michael O’Hanlon, Thomas Perriello, and Anthony Gambino repeated the old tale that “Joseph Kabila” became president after “his father was assassinated”. Why have US African policy experts and officials, since 2001, been stuck with this statement that has been proven to be patently and factually FALSE as if none of them reads, sees, or hears?
The US intelligence agencies had kept a file on Laurent Desire Kabila (LDK), the supposed father of “Joseph Kabila” from the Cold War in the 1980’s when Mobutu was the West’s guy and LDK was a rebel fighting Mobutu and the Americans and, in fact, he took some US hostages and he was even accused of having raped an American hostage. The US intelligence agencies also knew about the Rwandan Tutsi Christopher Kanambe, LDK’s associate in the fight against the Hutu government in Rwanda, a friend of Mobutu. After both LDK and Kanambe had semi-retired into Tanzania, Kanambe took money from Mobutu’s people and agreed to betray LDK who, when he found out, got Christopher Kanambe executed and LDK, then, “integrated” Kanambe’s wife into his harem of 13 wives. The US intelligence agencies knew that Kanambe’s wife, Marceline Mukambuguje, had children with Kanambe, which included 2 boys, Hyppolite and Zoe, who were never adopted, nor given LDK’s last name. As these boys grew up without an education, they had to go back to the land of their Tutsi parents, Rwanda, where, as in the case of Hyppolite, he became the personal driver of his uncle, James Kabarebe, then an officer of the Rwandan army who, in 1995, was put in command of the units that were going to invade the then-Zaire. So, James Kabarebe enrolled his nephew, Hyppolite Kanambe, in the Rwandan army.
Paul Kagame and James Kabarebe have publicly boasted how they put together a bunch of Congolese and formed a fictitious group, AFDL, in order to use it as a front and a cover of their 1996 invasion of today’s DRC. The US intelligence agencies know this, too. The invaders wanted one of theirs to keep an eye on Laurent Kabila who, neither the Americans (the Bill Clinton’s administration who were the power behind the invasion) nor the Rwandans trusted. So they chose young Hyppolite Kanambe, a proven cold-blood killer trained in intelligence and whose mother was part of Laurent Kabila’s harem of wives, to hide him under his mother’s skirt while keeping an eye on LDK. So, when the Rwandan army reached Kisangani during the invasion, the gullible and women lover LDK was ordered by the Rwandans, as a condition for him to become “the president of the Congo”, to introduce Hyppolite Kanambe with a new name, “Joseph Kabila”, and say that this is “his son”… The US intelligence agencies know this. Do Obama and Kerry know this?
Furthermore, the US intelligence agencies are not the only one who know this truth, this fact about Hyppolite Kanambe a.k.a. “Joseph Kabila” being a foreigner, a 100% Rwandan Tutsi and nephew of James Kabarebe. In 2001, the day after Laurent Kabila was assassinated by the order of Paul Kagame, the Belgian reporter Collette Braekman wrote, in French, in Belgium’s Le Soir that “Joseph Kabila” had a Tutsi mother and that he grew up in Tanzania… Then, this past 2015, the Tanzanians, specifically, the late Reverend Christopher Mtikila , the late president of the Democratic Party of Tanzania, revealed that Hyppolite Kanambe, the Rwandan Tutsi boy who grew up in Tanzania and is now president of the DRC, was given the name “Kabila” even though he is not Congolese nor the son of Laurent Kabila. In 2012, before the Fancophonie meeting in Kinshasa, a French jurist and former member of the French parliament, Francois Gonnot, wrote that ALL THE DIPLOMATS, in Kinshasa, capital of the DRC, referred to “Joseph Kabila”, in French, as “Le Petit Rwandais” or “the Little Rwandan”… Finally, these American experts who have watched and reported on the Congolese people’s marches and protests, from Kinshasa to Goma, from Kisangani to Lubumbashi, at least since 2006, they have heard the sovereign Congolese people chanting about “Joseph Kabila”, in Lingala saying “Kabila, zonga na Rwanda ” (Kabila, go back to Rwanda) and “Zongisa ye na Rwanda” (Send him back to Rwanda); why? Simply because the Congolese people found out and they now know that Hyppolite Kanambe a.k.a. “Kabila” IS RWANDAN. So, WHY do American experts, analysts, and officials keep repeating A LIE, AN UNTRUTH that has been exposed for years now, by referring “Joseph Kabila” as a “Kabila” and the son of Laurent Kabila? Is it an American foreign policy dictum that outside imposture must be covered up?
A false document was infiltrated in the US State Department during Bill Clinton’s presidency by Kagame’s agents, and, up to now, this false document has become the basis for US understanding of the populations dynamics in the African Great Lakes and the DRC. We wrote to the Justice Department, and reportedly the FBI has been investigating. This false document resulted in a state-sponsored immigration fraud in the US that has brought tens of thousands of Rwandans to the US as “Congolese”, the LIE being that there are “minorities” – a notion unknown in DRC’s over 400 tribes or lingual groups – in the Congo named Tutsis, Hutus, Banyamulenge, and Banyarwanda. A sad state of colonial history’s ignorance on the part of American experts on Africa since it takes only a quick check of the colonial records of Belgium (in the case of the DRC) and Germany (in the case of Rwanda – a German colony from 1885 to 1919) to find out that since the time of the explorers to the Berlin Conference of 1884 that began the colonial history of Africa onto mid-twentieth century African independence movements, NEVER were there any autochthonous Congolese tribes of Tutsis or Hutus; and, Banyamulenge and Banyarwanda aren’t even tribes (Mulenge is a little hill in eastern Congo and Banyarwanda simply means “the people of Rwanda”. These Rwandan infiltrates in America as “Congolese” have been misleading Americans and muddying the clear invasion and occupation of the Congo by Rwanda and Uganda even today. This infiltration being accomplished through a plot by Kagame and “Kabila”, two Rwandan Tustis manipulating the world on the African Great Lakes. Add to this the unheard of betrayal of the Congo by the UN (under orders of Bill Clinton?) which set up offices of the UN mission for the DRC, NOT in the huge DRC, but in the very countries that invaded and occupied and have been killing and gang raping in DRC: in Rwanda (an office that deals with, not Rwandan but Congolese refugees) and two other offices in Uganda. How crazy is this? No wonder all “Congolese” refugees coming to America have been Rwandans, and American policy makers are oblivious?
- PAUL KAGAME “helped end the genocide in Rwanda”?
This is 2016; and, 22 years after the Rwandan genocide, an American expert on Africa such as Michael O’Hanlon states, without hesitation, that “Paul Kagame helped end the Genocide in Rwanda”. Really? In 2016 an American expert can say this? What planet has he been living on? And these are the experts who have been advising American officials on the African Great Lakes?
No wonder that Obama is getting ready to end his last term and Paul Kagame, who is the worst mass killer in many generations who has been slaughtering even his own Tutsi people, has been “gallantly”cavorting with the leaders of the West while killing, gang raping, mutilating in, and occupying the DRC with TOTAL impunity while, at the same time, sending his killer agents all over the world to assassinate his fellow Rwandan Tutsis and, amazingly, all Western leaders act chicken toward Kagame. Moreover, Kagame has changed Rwanda’s constitution so he can remain president for ever like his associate in Uganda, Yoweri Museveni; and, now, Kagame’s Trojan Horse in DRC, “Joseph Kabila” is also defying the Congolese constitution, the Congolese people, and even Obama’s admonition that he leaves as his last term in DRC ends in December…
Question to American experts: have you watched the BBC’s investigative documentary, “Rwanda, the untold Story”? Did you recommend that the intelligent Barack Obama views it too? (The American and foreign experts and investigators, including Rwandan Tutsis who fought alongside Kagame, who were interviewed for this documentary provide enough evidence to convict Kagame for mass killing, gang rape, and international high perjury. What else do you need?
Couldn’t Obama’s people reach the logical inference and conclusion from this mountain of evidence that, anyone who defends Kagame’s criminality is simply his agent, no matter whether the person is American, Rwandan, or “Congolese”?
- President Obama, even if your people mislead you, for the sake of JUSTICE, you should have ordered an official investigation of the UN Mapping Report of 1/10/2010.
Does anyone know why Barack Obama, who cares about the DRC, is about to end his second and last term and yet the UN Mapping Report of October 1, 2010 is still being hidden in UN drawers and no investigation has been ordered done?
The three points discussed above demonstrate the FAILURE of American policy in the African Great Lakes and the DRC. Is America an accomplice or what does America need to get out of this ignorance? Because, in the end, history will reveal all these falsehoods and, ultimately, Obama is going to be tagged for a leadership under which Panzi Hospital’s section of repairing brutally destroyed female genitals never went out of business, mass slaughter, gang rape, mutilations remained unabated, and, though not having a single Coltan mine on its territory, Rwanda retained the rank of first Coltan producer in the world: shame, shame, shame!
