LOS ANGELES - Angelina Jolie is calling out the Obama administration for its approach to the situation in Sudan.

"Their policy, though, raises a number of questions," the star wrote in a Newsweek editorial. "How is the Obama administration's approach to Sudan an evolution of justice? In addition, 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."

The actress, a U.N. Goodwill Ambassador since 2001, has devoted much of her efforts toward work in the troubled Darfur region, including her role in the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

Her editorial came in honor of Human Rights Day, noting past historical tragedies before settling on the Darfur crisis, which she writes has left "300,000 dead and 2.7 million people internally displaced."
