Friday on MSNBC’s “Ronan Farrow Daily,” United Nations Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie said America could have done more at the start of the crisis in Syria. Jolie has spent the last several years assisting survivors caught in the humanitarian crisis caused by the armed conflicts throughout the Middle East.
Hesitant to blame Obama or his administration for a Middle East that’s spiraling out of control, the Academy Award winning actress did say “we’re lacking in leadership in the world in general. I don’t think there is an example of extraordinary leadership that will breakthrough the stale mate of what is happening in the world.”
Jolie met with Syrian refugees in Lebanon in March. She went on to say that the United States should have done more and intervened in the conflict. “I don’t know what exactly the best move to make would be. I think it would have been at the start of the war. Now i’m not sure what the exact right thing to do is because it’s not just Syria.”
