(Newser) – Angelina Jolie “hates” President Obama so much that she and partner Brad Pitt “get in nasty arguments all the time” about him, sources tell Us—and she lets a bit of her distaste shine through in a piece she wrote for Newsweek on Darfur. “When the administration says it intends to work to 'improve the lives of the people of Darfur,' I would like to know what that means, besides the obvious point that their lives could hardly get worse.”

Noting that “government-supported militia have left 300,000 dead and 2.7 million people internally displaced,” Jolie faults Obama—who, a source tells Us, she thinks is "all smoke and mirrors”—for not doing anything to enforce warrants issued by an international court for the arrest of Sudan's president, Omar al-Bashir, and other leaders. “How is the Obama administration's approach to Sudan an evolution of justice?” the actress and UN goodwill ambassador asks.
