, Ann Garrison: "The Voice of America's DRC Blames Insecurity on Rwandan Rebels
, reported, on 01.09.2013 ... reported that ... 'The M23 militia has, since April, been the focus of most every statement the [Democratic Republic of Congo] has made about security in the eastern part of the country, but "analysts" now say that the group has been "surpassed" by the FDLR.' ... Does the VOA expect us to believe that none of these groups, including M23, are highly armed so as to control eastern Congolese resources and resource smuggling across Congo's eastern borders into Rwanda and Uganda? That all are, instead, armed to protect themselves and the people from the FDLR? ... I often recommend The Voice of America, particularly its stellar 'Straight Talk Africa' broadcast, as one of the best sources on Africa. And, Pacifica's WBAI AfrobeatRadio, the weekly radio hour I contribute to, has had the VOA's excellent Ugandan journalist Paul Ndiho on as a guest, so I know that the VOA can do better."
