Very cool as usual for Clooney.

I don't think it is true though that US is the most generous country in the world, at least in terms of aid-dollars per GDP. I think they are behind many countries.

It is a good statement and helps to show the horrible things that are going on in the Sudan. I admire Clooney for his stance and actions.
