I don't think it's a scam, but I do think that it's a somewhat narrow view of the situation that is intended to promote the point of view of the person and organization that has put the documentary out.  Kony and the LRA were without question brutal in what they did to try to win their conflict.  However, it is clearly oversimplified and it reflects something that happened in the past, not something that is a major problem at the moment.
