George Clooney, ever passionate about bringing attention to the crisis in Darfur, is currently travelling throughout the lawless and dangeous region of Chad. Joining the actor in his journey are NBC’s Ann Curry and New York Times reporter Nicholas Kristof. His goal, as usual, is to use the world’s fascination with his celebrity for good — having the cameras and media follow him and reveal the horrors in Darfur. With over 300,000 people killed or missing since the conflict began six-years ago, he’s doing everything in his power to help make a difference. As Kristof writes, that difference may come soon — especially if President Obama shows leadership and the world backs up the International Criminal Court’s expected arrest warrant for Sudan’s president, Omar Hassan al-Bashir.

According to a report this morning on NBC’s TODAY show, Clooney is scheduled to meet with President Obama next week, who visited one of the refugee camps in Chad in 2006. What’s the 46-year-old actor hoping to get out of the meeting? “We want him to appoint a high-level, full-time diplomat to negotiate and work hard everyday for a peace treaty,” said Clooney.

Check out the video below — and look for more info on Clooney’s meeting with the President next week.
