Angelina Jolie on Iraq

February 28, 2008

“Today’s humanitarian crisis in Iraq–and the potential consequences for our national security–are great. Can the United States afford to gamble that 4 million or more poor and displaced people, in the heart of the Middle East, won’t explode in violent desperation, sending the whole region into further disorder?”

–Angelina Jolie, UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador (excerpt from her “Stay to Help in Iraq” op-ed in the Washington Post)
