Diplomats Dissent Over Syria Widens Policy Split Between Obama and Clinton
US News and World Report article that quotes an interview from Ann Wright.
June 17, 2016.
Regardless of politics, the next president is likely to increase the use of force in Syria, and that could mean more difficult times ahead for the Syrian people, according to Ann Wright, a former State Department official. "Unfortunately, I think from the rhetoric of Donald Trump [who favors sending ground troops to fight the Islamic State group but not Assad] and Hillary Clinton and their known stances on the use of military power to resolve essentially political issues, I think both of them will be strong for military operations in Syria to affect the change and that would be the overthrow of the Assad government," Wright said in an interview with RT cable news network. "The U.S. government still has major policies to overthrow other people's governments," she said. "And we can certainly see that that does not result in peace and tranquility for the civilian population, whether it was in Iraq, whether it is in Syria, and it will not be that way for Syria." .

March 19, 2003 -- Thirteen Years Ago Resigning Due to President Bush's War on Iraq
March 19, 2016.
When I resigned from the U.S. government 13 years ago, I had no idea where my life would go. Thirteen years later, I want to thank those in the communities of peace and social justice in the United States and around the world for welcoming me and providing me a remarkable education in the role of citizens to challenge any government's dangerous and destructive policies..

Association for Diplomat Studies and Training . Moments in Diplomatic History: An Iraq War Dissent
March 16, 2016.
Remarkable article by the Association for Diplomat Studies and Training about my decision to resign from the U.S. Diplomatic Corps and my work as a peace activist! I never thought this type of article would appear in a diplomatic studies journal--complete with photos of various protest actions in the Congress and at the White House!! The article was taken from a transcript of an extensive interview I did in 2003 with ADST..

March 16, 2016.
This article attempts to explain US involvement in Somalia in 1993-94, but some of the important aspects were left out, including my letter of protest to the head of the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM) concerning a helicopter gunship attack in July 1993 on a building in which Somali elders were meeting to try to figure out how to stop the war between the UN and the warlord Aideed. UN/US intelligence got it wrong--on who was meeting-not militants, but elders! As the chief of the UN's Justice Division in Somalia, I wrote a letter to the head of UNOSOM stating that the military operation violated international law--among many other aspects of the UN's mission in Somalia..

Seeking Justice for Israeli High Seas Attack, Survivors Turn to US Court
January 12, 2016.
"The human rights violations committed against us were the illegal boarding of a U.S. flagged vessel in international waters, the assault of civilians on a U.S.-flagged vessel, physical injuries, and psychological and emotional injury," Wright, a retired U.S. army colonel and former diplomat who resigned in opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq, told Common Dreams. "Some of us were assaulted, thrown onto the deck, and our faces smeared into glass blown out by Israeli grenades," Wright continued. "One person had a concussion grenade go off close to his head and is suffering eye injuries six years later. Another woman was fired at by the Israeli army with a paint bullet between her eyes, giving her a concussion.".

Interview on Hawaii Public Radio on US military bases on Okinawa & North Korea nuclear test
January 7, 2016.
From Hawaii Public Radio: Earlier this week, we talked about the opposition to the building of a Marine base in Okinawa, where there are already dozens of military bases. Shortly afterward, Retired Col. Ann Wright contacted us that she was back home in Honolulu and that one of her recent stops had been Okinawa. The former Army veteran and career diplomat became an activist after her resignation from the government in opposition to the war in Iraq in 2003. We periodically check in with her about her activities and she joined the show with her thoughts on a potential military base in Okinawa..

Air Force Times. Group urges drone operators to refuse orders to fly
June 17, 2015.
Colonel Ann Wright quoted: The letter is signed by 45 veterans, the highest ranking of which is retired Army Col. Ann Wright, who also served as a diplomat in Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, and elsewhere. She reopened the U.S. Embassy in Kabul in December 2001 and later resigned from the U.S. government in 2003 to protest the Iraq war. Wright told Air Force Times that she signed the letter because she is concerned about civilian casualties from drone strikes. "I have travelled to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Gaza to do talk to victims of US and Israeli drones," she said in an email to Air Force Times. "Because of the number of civilian casualties, I firmly believe that this weapon system is jeopardizing US national security and creating large numbers of people who despise the United States (and Israel for the drone use in Gaza). "I have worked with our latest generation of veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and know the suffering that many of them are enduring -and I know several drone operators who tell stories of their nightmares.".

The conventional wisdom is that our leaders tell the truth and can be trusted. But the attack in the Gulf of Tonkin, which was used to justify the escalation of the war in Vietnam, was fabricated; we know that now. We were told we had to go to war in Iraq because of the imminent threat posed by weapons of mass destruction, which turned out not to exist. Our leaders continue to pursue illegal policies, such as rendition and torture, and then pass laws to protect themselves from prosecution. It's up to citizens to challenge our leaders..

Turkey puts Israeli Generals on Trial for Mavi Marmara Attack
The Real News 10 Minute video with interview with Ann Wright.
November 12, 2012.
Ann Wright, "The commandos coming in with violence, it's human nature if somebody's coming at me and going to beat the hell out of me, I'm going to pick up that camera right there and try to stop them. That's what people were doing on the Mavi Marmara. They had no weapons, they used chairs, they bent some poles off things, but when you're facing a force that's shooting and has already killed people, and you don't know whether they're going to kill you next, one can understand why there were some people that tried to resist. There were people who were killed on the top of the boat, on the Mavi Marmara, that were killed by snipers that were shooting from the helicopters. There was no resistance there. They were just standing there, and all of a sudden they were lying in their own pool of blood." Hassan Ghani Passengers on other boats, where there was no resistance, say they too were shot with plastic rounds, tasered and severely beaten. Many of them have been testifying in Istanbul. Ann Wright "This is the first time the evidence has been brought to a court. And it also sends a signal to other Israeli government officials, that if you follow the dictates of a political administration, and you attack and murder others, you are going to be held accountable for this - so this is a very important trial.".

Turkey begins trial of Israeli military over Gaza ship killings
November 7, 2012.
Ann Wright, a former colonel in the U.S. army, who was on one of the smaller ships, described how Israeli troops had boarded their vessel, firing paint bullets and tossing stun grenades. "After serving 29 years in the U.S. army, I retired in 2003 in opposition to the Iraq war," she told the court. "One of the reasons I went on the flotilla is that I felt compelled to challenge Israeli policy to impose an illegal blockade on Palestine and the U.S. policy to support Israel's illegal actions," she said..

Trial opens in Turkey against Israeli military officers in 2010 ship raid
November 6, 2012.
Among the plaintiffs testifying in court Tuesday was retired U.S. Army Col. Ann Wright, who was a passenger on a ship in the convoy that sought to break through the Israeli blockade around Gaza in May 2010. Speaking outside the court, Wright said she witnessed the Israeli military take over the Mavi Marmara from a different ship in the flotilla. She also described her own experience in Israeli custody. "They did everything to intimidate and humiliate us," Wright said. Tension grows between Turkey, Israel U.N. releases report on flotilla incident Read more: Flotilla raid 'regrettable' but legal, Israeli commission finds "If there is a judgment against these four people, then it really sends the signal to other Israeli officials that if you implement the criminal policies of your government that are violations of your own laws as well as international laws, then you may be held accountable. And that is a major move. That's really big," she said..

Article by Jon Letman quotes Col Ann Wright "Retired U.S. Army Colonel Ann Wright sees RIMPAC and the growing number of multi-national joint military "exercises and engagements" in the region as an opportunity for the United States to test (and show off) its next generation of weaponry: laser-fueled, computerized, and submarine-launched drones. It's also a chance to closely assess regional capabilities while positioning the United States to more effectively "push around" other countries and persuade them to do the foreign policy and military operational bidding of the United States, Wright says. Wright, who resigned in protest of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, points to the South Korean naval base on Jeju which, when finished, will house AEGIS-equipped destroyers linked to U.S. missile defense as an example of how the United States pressures its allies to follow certain paths.".
