Ann Wright on Democracy Now

Amy Goodman's interview of retired Army Colonel Ann Wright on Democracy Now gives some often overlooked background information about the beginning of Cindy Sheehan's Vigil as well as providing an alternative view into some historic events by a diplomat who was involved in restablishing a U.S. mission in Afghanistan in 2001 before being one of three diplomats to resign in opposition to the Bush invasion of Iraq. Decades of honored service to our country can't be denied by the chicken hawk pundits; Ann has credibility and passion. I first heard her speak this past January in D.C. at a CODEPINK Counter-inaugural Rally. I think I captured that passion in this photo.
