On Monday morning, A+ list actor George Clooney was invited to the White House to discuss the humanitarian crisis in Darfur with President Barack Obama.
George is a U.N. Messenger of Peace and he reportedly asked the president to appoint a full-time, White House regional envoy.
He also called for China to set aside its business interests in the region and pressure Sudan to prevent atrocities.
Peacemaker George said he also told the president of his visit to camps in Chad where 250,000 Darfur refugees live.
"I don't think people should be going there and coming back and saying how it affected them. I think somehow we should all know that these people are hanging on by the skin of their teeth," commented Mr. Clooney to CNN's Larry King via satellite from the front lawn of the White House.
It's always good to see someone like George put his weight behind important humanitarian issues.
