Iraq, and Angelina


Leave the kids with Brad… Mommy’s hit the road!

Wow, Angelina Jolie was in Iraq and Syria on Tuesday. Who knew?!?! It’s a good thing they kept it hush hush considering previous threats from Al Quaeda while filming in Pakistan.

Angie who is the UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, (works with refugees and displaced people), flew to Syria on Monday and visited Iraqi refugees in Damascus. She then went to Iraq on Tuesday to visit a makeshift camp by those who are unable to leave Iraq.

“I have come to Syria and Iraq to help draw attention to the humanitarian crisis and to urge governments to increase their support for UNHCR and its partners,” Jolie said in a statement. “My sole purpose in both countries is to highlight the plight of those uprooted by the war in Iraq.”

Following her Tuesday meeting with those at the Al Waleed camp in the war-torn nation, Jolie said, “It is absolutely essential that the ongoing debate abut Iraq’s future includes plans for addressing the enormous humanitarian consequences these people face.”

At least she doesn’t judge the situation and is (publicly saying) that she’s just there to help the refugees.

Angelina also showed the troops some love by stopping in to see American, and other multi national troops. :-D
