Ray will speak about "Israel & Iran: Facts vs. Fear".

He will be introduced by Leena Al-Arian.

* As an act of conscience, on March 2, 2006 Ray returned the Intelligence Commendation Medallion given him at retirement for "especially meritorious service," explaining, "I do not want to be associated, however remotely, with an agency engaged in torture."

* On May 4, 2006, in Atlanta, Ray made national news by confronting Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on live TV with questions like: "Why did you lie to get us into a war that was not necessary and that has caused these kinds of casualties?"

* See consortiumnews.com for Ray's website writings. He has appeared on Charlie Rose, The Newshour, CNN, more!
