Angelina Jolie doubts Obama
Wow, who knew someone had it in them in Hollywood. Angelina Jolie wrote an editorial piece for Newsweek, titled “Justice Delayed is Not Justice Denied,” regarding the ongoing tragedy in Darfur.
Jolie complains that Obama’s administration “has not yet announced any serious moves” to bring corrupt Sudanese leaders to justice.
“I believe President Obama … will do [his] best to bring peace to the region,” Jolie writes, but she seriously questions his policy. “How is the Obama administration’s approach to Sudan an evolution of justice?” she writes. “In addition, when the administration says it intends to work to ‘improve the lives of the people of Darfur,’ I would like to know what that means, besides the obvious point that their lives could hardly get worse.”
Um, wow! Most in Hollywood would rather eat their young than say something about questioning Obama, IMO. But, she goes on…
The 34 year-old actress worries that if the administration doesn’t deal more forcefully with Sudanese officials, future leaders could continue to “pocket financial assistance and aid relief” and “act with impunity.”
She also recommends a new report “funded by the Jolie-Pitt Foundation” that the administration and the U.N. should use to the prevent future atrocities worldwide. Jolie adds: “On this Human Rights Day–the same day President Obama receives his Nobel Peace Prize–we must also remember those who have been deprived of their rights.”
Now, we all know Jolie is a master planner,and she knows ANYONE that questions the current administration gets a ton of press. And she’s using this to her advantage for her cause.
Quite the clever woman.
