“You really should do your research because this is a very unique and special case in which people do not have to die,” Mr. Russell said.
“We put a man on the moon. That’s what we did as human beings. People maybe should have died doing that but we figured it out.”
The key to capturing Mr. Kony is to outsmart him, Mr. Russell said in the interview.
“We have to use our technology and resources and human power to ask him to surrender because we don’t want this to end bloody,” he said, calling Mr. Kony “the world’s worst criminal.”
“We don’t want bombs being dropped. We don’t want a bullet through his head. We want him alive. That’s the win.”
Mr. Russell said he sees a “beautiful ending” to the manhunt that ends with Mr. Kony surrendering peacefully, boarding a helicopter and being tried in the International Criminal Court.
