How Angelina Jolie Could Have Helped Catch an Ugandian War Lord

As US troops make the final preparations to withdraw from the six-year hunt for the Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony, it turns out that different methods were used to arrest him including an offer by the celebrated Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie to act as a bait to capture the elusive rebel leader.

A new report from The Sunday Times, based on 40,000 documents obtained by the French investigative website Mediapart, reveals the Oscar victor agreed to lure Kony out of hiding with the help of then-husband Brad Pitt by traveling to the Central African Republic with a team of U.S. Special Forces.

Angelina Jolie was involved in a plot to capture African notorious warlord Joseph Kony. But now we know she was also almost part of a covert operation to lure a notorious warlord out of hiding so he could be arrested. "Forget other celebrities, she is the one". On his side, Angelina Jolie confirms her motivation: " Brad argues.

After she released her movie In the Land of Blood and Honey back in 2011, he wrote to her, 'I am in LA and I watched the movie again (4th time) ... you are a genius.

The Sunday Times said, though, nothing never happened despite Moreno Ocampo developing a fixation on using celebrities during his time as chief prosecutor at the ICC until his term ended in 2012.

He has evaded capture for years, continuing to lead the operations of his group called the "Lord's Resistance Army". She is ready. Probably Brad will go also'. Ocampo claimed that Jolie was keen to take part in the plot, and she suggested luring Kony to a private dinner where he would be arrested. "Let's discuss logistics. Much love Xxx", Jolie reportedly wrote in one email. "Can Brad go with you?"

A series of allegedly leaked documents of the International Criminal Court reveal that Angelina Jolie was in touch with previous International Criminal Court chieff prosecutor Louis Moreno Ocampo.

Jolie actually had publicly discussed her desire to somehow go after Kony, the Huffington Post said.

In March 2012, Kony gained worldwide attention when U.S. charity Invisible Children released a video detailing the plight of child soldiers who were forced to fight in his army.
