Speaking to ITV News, Angeline Jolie revealed that there is “a failing of international leadership” to handle the humanitarian crisis in Syria which has left 51 million people displaced. When asked specifically how Obama has acted, she replied:
“I’m not here to criticise or pass judgment on a particular leader, including my own President, but I will say that we have overall a failing of international leadership when we have 51 million people displaced from conflict. [That is] More people displaced than since after World War II, when we have completely open-ended conflicts, when we have crises like Syria. We seem to be completely unable to handle it and make ground and help all of the people who are starving and dying at the moment – and Syria is just one of many.”
Jolie also suggested that she may make a major career move by entering the political arena, if she “could make a difference.” Would you like to see her in politics? Sound off in the comments section.
