And retired Colonel Ann Wright, a former United States military leader and diplomat for the State Department is an outspoken opponent of the U.S. war economy.

  1. I couldn’t be more impressed with Ann Wright.
    Thanks for the great interview.
    She has worked tirelessly for peace and justice,
    and should be nominated for the next peace prise.
    It’s time for someone who actually deserves it to be nominated.
