Is George Clooney planning to meet with President Obama to talk to about the crisis in Darfur?
That's true! Clooney confirmed to Ann Curry he's meeting with the President next week. George talked to NBC News during his visit to refugee camps in Africa, telling Ann, "We want him (Obama) to appoint a high level full time diplomat... to work hard and negotiate for a peace treaty."
The actor/activist was named a "Messenger of Peace" by the United Nations in January 2008.
The United Nations reports that at least 300,000 people in Darfur have died from combined effects of war, famine and disease, while another 2.2 million have been forced from their homes.
