Angelina Jolie has traveled to the Middle East in an effort to bring attention to the refugee crisis in war-torn Iraq. Angelina, who's a goodwill ambassador for the United Nation's High Commissioner for Refugees, is there to help raise awareness of the 4.2 million Iraqis who've been forced to flee their homes, most of whom settled into neighboring Syria and Jordan. "There doesn't seem to be a real coherent plan to help them," says the pregnant star. "There's lots of goodwill. Lots of discussion, but there seems to be a lot of talk at the moment, and a lot of pieces that need to be put together. I'm trying to figure out what they are," she adds. While in Iraq, the A Mighty Heart star also had lunch with the troops. "How Iraq settles in the years to come is going to affect the entire Middle East," Angelina says. "It's in our best interest to address a humanitarian crises on this scale because displacement can lead to a lot of instability and aggression."
