George Clooney meets with Obama on Sudan

(CNN) - Movie star George Clooney took his message about the ongoing crisis in South Sudan to the Oval Office on Thursday, sharing his concerns during a private meeting with President Obama.

As part of his effort, Clooney testified before Congress on Wednesday and was invited to sit next to First Lady Michelle Obama at the State Dinner for Prime Minister David Cameron.

    Clooney acknowledged that keeping Sudan on the public’s radar is difficult, especially during what he called a particularly “complicated time in the world.”
    My advise on how to get Obama really behind this cause is to take a strategic approach. Timing right now is critical to take advantage of.

    How can you present this cause as an opportunity for Obama to get as much money as possible into the hands of as many voters as possible and for them to believe that this money came directly from Obama?

    This is the key, George. Put it in his terms. Otherwise you may be fighting an uphill battle with this current administration's attention.

    The US can only get involved in conflicts that the bundler, Hollywood crowd and George Soros approve. So let's send more troops to Kenia
