“Machine Gun Preacher” disowned by SPLM

Remember him? So it turns out he’s probably a fraud.
John Ashworth comments:
This is a very strange case of a former US evangelical missionary who makes extraordinary claims which do not seem to be backed up by evidence on the ground. He has been disowned by the local church in southern Sudan and now also by the SPLA. It appears he is raising money on the back of these claims.

The SPLA is not one person. In South Sudan when those photos were taken I'm guessing it was certainly possible to hang out and make friends with a bunch of soldiers, and then be denounced by the leadership when embarrassing news articles start cropping up.
