    WHat I am trying to figure out is how is this different than Libya?
    We bomb Libya and the liberals are cheering Obama and say it is to stop the atrocities.
    Sudan?...nah....somehow they don't matter. Course neither does 10,000 children in Africa.

    Clooney is protesting human rights abuses in Sudan. Doesn't say jack shit about Sudan 'attacking' the US.

    Wow. ETA: I must add that I admire his persistence and devotion to the Sudanese people. He's not a "fly by nighter" with a cause du jour.
    Clooney has been passionate about this for years.

    Also among those arrested as a mob of reporters and cameramen looked on were Clooney's Father Nick Clooney; President of United to End Genocide and former Congressman Tom Andrews; Congressmen Jim McGovern, D-MA, Al Green, D-TX, Jim Moran, D-VA., and John Olver D-MA; Martin Luther King III, NAACP President Ben Jealous; and Enough Project Co-Founder John Prendergast, according to a police statement.

    Nothing to see here. Just a bunch of lame Socialist/Progressive Globalist Elites. They would just love to drag us into another War. Will the Dear Leader 'detain' them under the NDAA? Stay tuned.

    I really can understand Clooney's frustration on this issue. Genocide for true. And no one is doing anything about it. Including the United Nations.

    Instead, great support for Arab Spring that has only turned the Middle East over to the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda.

    A lot has been done. South Sudan declared independence and now has their own Nation. So progress has been made. And go figure, it didn't require us interfering in yet another foreign conflict. Clooney and his gang of mental-midgets are just Socialist/Progressive Globalists looking to get us involved in another War. Let's not oblige them.

    This is simply a publicity stunt. To think an elitist-Leftist like Clooney give's a rat's ass about the people of Sudan (or anyone else for that matter) is idiotic. Also - didn't he meet with Obama yesterday in the White House? You think he ran this protest by him or served it up cold?
