Angelina Jolie Linked to Bizarre Plot to Capture Warlord Joseph Kony

Clooney co-founded a project to track war crimes in South Sudan

The emails also reportedly show that ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo, who was involved in hatching the plot with Jolie, also tried to recruit Hollywood stars George Clooney and Sean Penn in the effort to lure the elusive Kony out of hiding. 'Forget other celebrities, she is the one, ' Mr Moreno Ocampo apparently wrote in an email.

Jolie actually contemplated the idea that she and then-parter Brad Pitt could travel with a team of USA special forces to the Central African Republic, according to leaked International Criminal Court documents that were detailed by The Sunday Times.

Fighting between Kony's Lord's Resistance Army and the Ugandan Army broke out in the 1980s.

Jolie served as a United Nations special envoy and once decried Kony. Has the image of the films she made (The Country of blood and honey, Invincible or first they killed my father), Angelina Jolie is a woman of heart who loves to treat the hard subjects and fight for your beliefs.

She's become as well-known for her humanitarian work as she has for her movies, but was Angelina Jolie part of a plan to help catch a notorious warlord?

Kony was indicted by the ICC in 2005 for alleged war crimes and gained global notoriety in 2012 due to a viral video from the Invisible Children organization detailing his crimes. "Probably Brad [Pitt] will go also", Ocampo wrote.

In 2012, Angelina Jolie was supposed to be part of a plan to arrest rebel leader Joseph Kony. In a 2010 interview with Nightline, she admitted that she would be tempted to "take down" Kony if she were ever face to face with him. I miss you, ' which went unanswered. It detailed emails between the actress and the ICC Chief Prosecutor from Argentina, Luis Moreno Ocampo.

He said in one exchange to "invite Kony to dinner and then arrest him", implying Ms Jolie volunteered to be some sort of bait USA forces could use.

As The Sunday Times reported, Moreno Ocampo claimed he had been "the focus of a cyber-attack." E!

In the wake of the leak, Ocampo claims that he is the victim of a "targeted cyber attack", as he's now being questioned over his alleged ties to Libyan businessman Hassan Tatanaki, who worked alongside former dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

You'll get him next time, Angie!
