Ann Wright spent 13 years on active duty in the US Army and the next 16
years as a foreign diplomat in countries such as Nicaragua, Somalia,
Uzbekistan, and Sierra Leone. She was on the team that reopened the US
Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan in December, 2001. On the eve of the US
invasion of Iraq, she resigned in protest, declaring, "I have served my
country for almost thirty years in some of the most isolated and dangerous
parts of the world. I want to continue to serve America. However, I do not
believe in the policies of this Administration and cannot --- morally and
professionally --- defend or implement them." She is the author of "Dissent:
Voices of Conscience -- Government Insiders Speak Out Against the War in
Iraq".

Dahr Jamail is an award-winning independent and unembedded journalist. He
has spent a total of nine months in occupied Iraq as one of only a few
independent US journalists in the country and has also reported from Syria,
Lebanon and Jordan. He is author of "Beyond the Green Zone" and now his new
book "The Will to Resist-Soldiers who Refuse to Fight in Iraq and
Afghanistan".
