First as a soldier, achieving the rank of colonel by the time she retired, then as a diplomat at embassies in Nicaragua, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Somalia and elsewhere. So, it was astonishing when in March of 2003 Wright became one of three diplomats to resign over America's impending invasion of Iraq and take up a third career as an ant-war activist .</p> Mon, 20 Feb 2012 20:30:27 +0000 Steve Kraske, Danie Alexander, Kathleen Pointer & Stephen Steigman 12807 at http://kcur.org Ann Wright: Soldier, Diplomat, Activist
