Well, at least she did not give a sympathetic portrayal of the terrorists in her recent movie "A Mighty Heart" (she played the widow of Daniel Pearl.

But I still think she's a wacko.

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'll recite any lines given to her on a page as long as you pay her market rate. actors make their living impersonating other people.

she'd play condi rice if the price was right.

From the article:

Besides her activities for UNHCR, Jolie also met privately with American troops and other multi-national forces in the region.

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?

On her next trip she will travel to Fantasy Island to visit her fan base...Just like the U.N., all symbolism, no substance.

Did Angie go to Iraq under Saddam and Sons?

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!)

He's adopting them too.

I think they're going to be sorry when all those kids hit their teenage years.

Maybe she and Brad should think again about buying that 25 million dollar house in france and give the money instead to homeless and starving people. I can’t stand that hypocrite.

I'm still waiting for some of our "top' presidential candidates to bother going to Iraq, especially before they spout their 'expert' opinion on the situation. Like Thompson and Rudy, for instance. Oh, that's right, Thompson isn't a 'candidate' yet is he?

The humanitarian refugee crisis coming out of Iraq is going to be a major problem that this administration needs to get ahead of. Over 100,000 Iraqi’s have fled that were employed by us, mostly translators, the ones that haven’t been targeted by insurgents and killed.

They’ve been vetted and speak English. There’s no good reason why only 100 have been granted asylum here. Perhaps our Southern neighbors would consider staying home a couple weeks so we could save the lives of those who have befriended us.

LOL! Fat chance!!

Listen, if you really want to help Iraqi people, skip the UN which is fraught with fraud and outright theft and try helping something like Hearts for Baghdad, which is a clinic for Iraqi civilians run by volunteer members of our military at Camp Victory.

So far, all she did was tout supporting the UN refugee organization. As long as she keeps to that, allee samee, no skin off my nose.

It will be interesting to see if she also visits the Paleo refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan, while she’s at it.

“Angelina Jolie is in Iraq to witness firsthand the humanitarian crisis there, the United Nations Refugee Agency UNHCR has announced.”

MAY SHE BE SO INSPIRED THAT SHE DECIDES NOT TO RETURN TO THE USA!!!!!!! but stay and actually help some of the refugees rather than just “observe”..

In Damascus, she visited a UNHCR registration center and spend hours talking to Iraqi refugees in their homes.

Refugees with homes. Immigrants? No, Victims. Yes. Victims.

And yet her dad is very pro troops. I saw him Hannity/Colmes and was very happy to see him talk up the mission in Iraq. Guess Angie didn’t get his sense of logic!
