betty watch 2009

Well, the fate of Congolese rebel Laurent Nkunda's pet goat Betty is still in doubt. Perhaps responsibility for goat management in sub-Saharan Africa should be handed over to a rapid-reaction force of Nigerian police commandos. After all, if they were able to track down and arrest a goat that is using witchcraft to change shapes in order to commit robbery, I'm sure they can figure out where Betty is. Maybe they could help the Rwandans use Betty as a tool to get Nkunda to talk.

In other Congo news, an FDLR leader who's hiding out in Marangara has apparently christened the Rwandan army the "Tutsis of Kagame." That has a certain je ne sais quoi to it, non?
