I am an expert on Congo

I am an expert on Congo politics, I have written my own book and have worked on the Congo for 8 years. Mr. Philpot clearly has his own agenda, he is the worst kind of apologist for Françafrique. I know better than most what Rwanda's domestic and foreign policy has been but his book is completely one sided. Mr. Philpots work is a pathetic collection of French conspiracy theories. This book downplays the horror of the Rwandan genocide. Yes the RPF, launched a war in Congo and killed 5 million people but the RPF is not a creation of American foreign policy. The author makes dubious allegations that the CIA assassinated the former president of Rwanda which has no basis in reality. His reason why the US would supposedly do this is the same old conspiracy theory the US is trying to steel Africa's resources, so it helped Rwanda invade the Congo. If the US was just interested in resources it would be far more simple to prop up Mobutu's rule rather than back a foriegn actor to overthrow him.
