George Clooney, fresh from his trip to the Sudan last week, visited Capitol Hill and the White House yesterday to brief lawmakers and President Obama on the deteriorating situation in the region.

“I think we’re very impressed with how involved, at the highest level, this administration is,” the actor/humanitarian said after the meeting with Obama. “And now our job is to try and continue to keep it in the press and … to keep the light turned on for the next 90 days while we try and broker a peace deal, which is what they’re working on right now.”

Clooney, who regularly visits the Sudan to draw awareness to the humanitarian crisis that continues to unfold there, traveled to remote locations last week ahead of a vote for the nation’s independence and, thus, a possible civil war. “If you knew a tsunami, or Katrina or a Haiti earthquake was coming, what would you do to save people?” he asked.

This was the second meeting for Clooney with President Obama. Back in February of 2009, he met with the then newly-elected President and Vice President to discuss the humanitarian crisis in Darfur.

    Someone should tell George there are no Arabs in the Sudan. Thus there is no “ethnic cleansing,” as he says. There are only marginally lighter skinned black folks killing other black folks. Yes, those northerners style themselves “Arabs.” It’s a cultural conceit with no basis in reality. It’s a sign of status and nothing else.
