Movie star George Clooney was led away in handcuffs after storming the Sudanese Embassy protesting the actions of the country's president Omar Al-Bashir, an alleged war criminal.
Clooney made the rounds in Washington this week, hoping his superstar wattage will help shine a light on the situation in Sudan. The actor testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and held private meetings with the Secretary of State and President Obama about the African nation's dire humanitarian situation and the Obama administration's policy. He led a protest today outside of Sudan's embassy calling on Omar Al-Bashir, an alleged war-criminal, to stop the violence and allow humanitarian aid into the country.

The man knows nothing about protesting and getting arrested. You are supposed to lay down on the ground or link arms with fellow protestors..or something more spectacular than just giving in.
Maybe he needs to watch some OWS coverage before his next protest so he knows how to make an effective statement.
If the worthless UN wasn’t so absorbed in studying American voting laws and sipping campaign and shoving caviar into their maws, they’d get some European, Chinese, Russian troops (Americans are already doing much more then their share), and go in there and knock some Muslim heads.
If POTUS was not a Muslim abbeting Saul Alinsky-ite, Letters of Marque couldsued aand the vacation industry could sell door gunner spots for Christian vacationers.
We could also allow Christians to contract with Ethiopians for attacks on Muslims. Ethiopians know and loath Muslims, AND they have the best air attack capabilities in that area.
Hmmmn - sell seats on night napalm missions - should sell out in a hurry.
