Angelina Jolie on Darfur

I never thought I’d be able to ask this question, but have you read Angelina Jolie’s op-ed in The Washington Post today? The truth be told, it’s not any better or any worse than most other pieces I’ve read in the mainstream press. And to her credit, she (unlike most people who have an opinion about Darfur, myself included) has actually been there.

Like most other proponents of intervention, she doesn’t say exactly what she thinks that would entail, but she does come out as a strong supporter of the ICC accusations.

I think it was Bono who once said (more or less), “Celebrity is a currency, and I want to spend mine well.” I have to say that I couldn’t agree more, and if Angelina Jolie wants to spend hers on Darfur, then I say more power to her.
