Let's talk about Angelina Jolie's proposed honeypot scheme

It was hoped that Jolie could be embedded with forces close to Kony left

In a plan that sounds more like a rejected movie script than reality, Angelina Jolie offered to help capture Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony by inviting him to dinner, according to leaked emails, reports People.

"Apparently you can be embedded with the special forces that are chasing Kony", Moreno Ocampo wrote in an email seen by the Sunday Times.

He hoped to plant Jolie, and her husband Brad Pitt, with U.S. special forces close to Kony's stronghold, according to leaked ICC documents. Kony, who remains at large, is accused of rape, murder, enslavement and the enforced conscription of children in northern Uganda while leader of the Lord's Resistance Army. Jolie was one of many horrified by Kony's actions, and was willing to use her celebrity to put an end to his despicable acts. "Let's discuss logistics. Much love Xxx", Jolie replied.

Kony was indicted by ICC officials in 2005 for war crimes and crimes against humanity, but has evaded capture despite a major celebrity-led campaign aimed at bringing him to justice. "It is ready. Brad will probably come too", writes Luis Moreno Ocampo.

No, this isn't the plot of Angelina Jolie's next adventure movie: How a glamorous Hollywood actress agrees to serve herself up as bait to lure a murderous African warlord out of hiding so he can be arrested by US special forces.


It was thought that their presence would then draw Kony out of his armored compound and enable the United States forces to take him into custody.

Ocampo reportedly also reached out to George Clooney and Sean Penn with this idea. I miss you, ' which went unanswered.

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.

The actress and filmmaker and Moreno Ocampo began corresponding after he invited her to become his adviser, an offer she appears to have declined, and praised her 2011 film In the Land of Blood and Honey, which told the story of the Bosnian war.

I guess we'll never know if Brange could have captured Kony or not.
