Angelina Jolie is in Iraq to witness firsthand the humanitarian crisis there, the United Nations Refugee Agency UNHCR has announced.
The actress and UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, 32, flew from New York to Syria on Monday. In Damascus, she visited a UNHCR registration center and spend hours talking to Iraqi refugees in their homes.
Tuesday's journey took her to Iraq to meet with 1,200 refugees camped out in a makeshift outpost at the border, because they are unable to leave the country. She also witnessed dozens of Iraqis crossing into Syria.
"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."

Geez, think she could at least visit with some of the troops while there?
I cannot stand these people...stand a post or get out.
But I still think she's a wacko.
Delusions of grandeur maybe?
Nope... she can’t visit the troops while in Iraq. You see, the troops are the oppressors of the Iraqi Freedom Fighters. All they do is kill people indiscriminantly.
she'd play condi rice if the price was right.
Besides her activities for UNHCR, Jolie also met privately with American troops and other multi-national forces in the region.
This mental midget wants to grab headlines.
Well, her boyfriend Pitt produced the movie and it didn't make very much so I don't know how much she got paid for that one.
Well, gee. The Democrats finally came up with a way to win people over to their viewpoint.
Angelina will come home and say we are losing and Iraq’s misery is all our fault, and even the smartest Republican men will now buy it because “she’s pretty, so everything she says must be true”. Where is a good rolls eyes smiley I can use.
That’s nice. Are we all supposed to try to guess the name of the orphan she brings home?
she must have owed him a big favor. maybe he is letting her adopt a new kid?
Oops, I forgot, she was busy making out with her brother, numerous women, and wearing a vile of blood around her neck.
(but that’s what commie-vampires do!)
I think they're going to be sorry when all those kids hit their teenage years.
Delusions of relevancy..............
I prefer “Irrelevancy on parade”
