Correction: Ann Wright Detained at US Army Base
Editor's Note: The print edition of Revolution incorrectly states that Ann Wright was charged With Sedition. We regret the error.
On Monday, May 22, Retired Army Colonel and former U.S. diplomat Ann Wright was detained at Fort McNair military base in Washington, DC. She was at Ft. McNair to demand that U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld be held accountable for the torture at Abu Ghraib. Interviewed on Democracy Now, Wright said she left materials about the movie Sir, No Sir: The Suppressed Story of the GI Movement to End the War In Vietnam at the base. Wright resigned her State Department post to protest the war in Iraq, and later testified at the International Commission of Inquiry on Crimes Against Humanity Committed by the Bush Administration bushcommission.org. Read the “Revolution Interview with Ann Wright” that appeared in Revolution #20.
