In the past few days 56 million people have seen the "Kony 2012" video and are outraged against Joseph Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army.

Now you can see Kony himself and hear him speak. This video shows rare footage of Kony, taken during an effort to negotiate with him in 2006. It is fascinating to see Kony. Just as chilling are the shots of his LRA soldiers.

If you've seen "Kony 2012" you'll want to see this short video.
