First, let me say, I respect George Clooney for his efforts to fight these horrors in Sudan. From a press conference:

From Clooney:

"We also know that these men, Omar al-Bashir, Defense Minister Hussein, are all war criminals. They are not convicted, but they are charged of war crimes in the international criminal court. This is evidence that will be compiled and used against them if they are ever brought to trial, if and when they are brought to trial.”

"Listen, any time you are making the names of people who are charged for war crimes famous, I think that’s good. I think the name Omar al-Bashir should be famous, I think people should know it.”
----------
Now, thanks to Obama's ILLEGAL action in Libya, Omar now receives a hero's welcome there.

CNN, of course diverts the issue away from Obama's DISASTEROUS action in Libya, and away from the MUSLIM War Criminal Omar al-Bashir.

Once again; Wesley Clark on the PRE-Planned list of countries that the INTERNATIONAL BANKERS wanted their puppet presidents to persue.



"Uncle Tom" Obama, although only a Illinois Senator when the list was made, has done pretty well as president with the list; ie overthrowing Ghaddadi in Libya, working to overthrow the governments of Syria and Iran, and sending troops to the Sudan.

George Clooney is a self-important tool. Who cares what he thinks? He should be sent to Gitmo and waterboarded until he learns to mind his own business.

Clooney is a shameless publicity hound. As if anyone really believes his rah rah campaign is really about Sudan. It's about George Clooney trying to be like Bono. He is just an average, middle-aged actor who wants to be a rock star even though by his own admission, can't sing worth a damn. Another example of an insecure, fading celebrity who will do anything to keep their name in the news.

I have to disagree. Clooney has done great work bringing focus on the AREOCITIES in Darfur and Southern Sudan caused by the MUSLIM WAR CRIMINAL Omar al-Bashir.

Now here is the RUB for the Uncle Tom in the WH!!! Because of his illegal war in Libya, the rascist rebels, whom NATO put in power, gave al-Bashir a hero's welcome when he arrived in that country.

Obama, of course, following the dictates of his superiors, wants to make Kony the target and not al-Bashir, even though Omar is Kony times a THOUSAND. Even so-called "reporters" will try to steer Clooney away from what he actually witnessed and onto questions about Kony.

It will be interesting to see how Clooney handles that pressure.
