HUFFINGTON: But already Newt Gingrich has been announcing new precinct captains in South Carolina. The chances are that Herman Cain's operation is going to move to Newt Gingrich. That's the expectation. Newt Gingrich created GOPAC. Newt Gingrich put together the Contract for America. It's not like he can't organize. You know, the idea that somehow Newt Gingrich is just full of ideas but he can't organize, just listen to all the members of Congress, including John Boehner, who got into politics because of Newt Gingrich's organization, and these little tapes that he was sending everybody to listen as they were driving around.

GARRETT: It's that excitement idea dynamic I was talking about earlier. It can take hold. I have seen it before.

BRAZILE: But you know, I'm an organizer -- not a community organizer, but an organizer, an old-school organizer at that -- but you have to get on the ballots in all of these states. And Newt has already missed one deadline in Missouri. Granted, it's not a binding primary with delegates, but in order to win the nomination, you got to get delegates. Therefore, you have to go out and get petitions.

So can he do it over the next couple of weeks? Perhaps.

AMANPOUR: That was the last word. Thank you all very much. And up next -- Angelina Jolie's labor of love. The Oscar winner opens up about her searing new film on the war in Bosnia.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

AMANPOUR: That was a scene from "In the Land of Blood and Honey" a new film written and directed by the Academy Award winning actress Angelina Jolie. It tells the story of innocent people caught in the middle of the Bosnian War. They were victims of systematic rape and genocide. And though the United States was heavily involved and finally ended the conflict in 1995, the actual war raging for more than three years in the heart of Europe was considered the greatest collective failure of international diplomacy since World War II.

I covered it and I sat down with the council on foreign relations with Angelina Jolie and two of the film's Bosnian stars Zana Marjanovic and Vanessa Glodjo.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

ANGELINA JOLIE, ACTRESS: I was thinking and meditating on these international themes of violence against women, lack of intervention and how human beings are changed and warped by war and how some people come out stronger and some people are truly broken.

AMANPOUR: Were you conscious of American foreign policy when you were doing this show?

JOLIE: It's infuriating how long it took to intervene. When I say intervene I don't mean always boots on the ground, I don't mean that, it's just being conscious, discussing it, not hiding the issues and figuring out and working towards solutions with the people on the ground.

AMANPOUR: And when you cast the film, you have an entirely local group of people who lived the war, lived all sides of the ethnic divide. Was that deliberate?

JOLIE: Absolutely. I would not have done the film without them. It belongs to them. It's their story

AMANPOUR: It is a controversial thing to do, to tackle the idea of camps, of ethnic cleansing, women being raped as a tool of war.

JOLIE: There's no safe way to tackle these subject matters. But I think the important thing is to discuss them and tackle them.

ZANA MARANJOVIC, ACTRESS: Our fear is the silence, our fear is the ignorance. Our fear is that people won't know what happened. And being ignorant about what happened leads a chance that it may happen again.
