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

Luis Moreno Ocampo, the court's chief prosecutor, had hoped to embed the actress and possibly her estranged husband Brad Pitt with some US special forces close to what they believed was a Kony stronghold where hundreds of children had been taken, the Times reported.

Moreno Ocampo wanted to embed Jolie and Pitt with US Special Forces close to Kony's stronghold, according to the report. If you remember the viral 2012 video on Kony, he's the leader of the Lord's Resistance Army, which formerly operated out of Uganda, and is responsible for abducting tens of thousands of men, women and mostly children and forcing them to join his militant group.

Jolie has spoken out against Kony before. "Let's discuss logistics. Much love Xxx", Jolie replied.

The warlord was indicted for war crimes in 2005 by the International Criminal Court. In another missive, he wrote, "Forget other celebrities, she is the one.She loves to arrest Kony". "Can Brad [Pitt] go with you?"

In 2012 he emailed Angelina about a trip to the Central African Republic in an attempt to arrest Kony. She had gone to the ICC at The Hague, Netherlands to watch him prosecute Thomas Lubanga of the Democratic Republic of Congo, the first person to ever be convicted by the court. "I miss you." It went unanswered.

According to The Sunday Times, the plan never came to fruition, and Moreno Ocampo says the Mediapart leak is part of a "targeted cyber attack".

Moreno Ocampo, who won just one ICC case in nine years, also reportedly recruited George Clooney and Sean Penn for other cases.

The star's assistant later informed Moreno Ocampo that Jolie had changed her personal email address.

The Argentine lawyer is now at the center of a row over his connections to Libyan businessman Hassan Tatanaki, who was closely tied to the brutal regime of former dictator Col. Muammer 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.
