In 2009, George Clooney took his concern for the people of Darfur straight to the White House, where he met with President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden to ask for more monitoring of the war-torn region of Africa. "It's not about government money or government troops; it's about involvement and diplomacy,” explained the Oscar winner, who has campaigned with the Save Darfur Coalition. “When you are standing on the ground in Chad or in Darfur and you see the tragedy that's going on, you actually hope that someone would come in and fix it immediately. Unfortunately, that's not the way it works." Late last year, Clooney also helped launch the groundbreaking Satellite Sentinel Project, which uses Google Map technology for satellite image analysis, along with field reports, to monitor and deter possible war activity in North and South Sudan.
