Col. Ann Wright in Jail


Here's a couple email reports I recieved - first up from Lydia (CodePINK Tallahassee) who's at the CP house in DC for two weeks...

....Col. Ann Wright was sentenced to 6 months probation (the strictest kind you've ever heard of - she can't even raise her voice near the Hill) - it was a jury trial and just blew everyone's' mind in the room. Check out the video interview with Bill O'Reilly that Deidra posted for the group not too long ago.

When Gen Petraeus spoke in the Senate in September (not the House where I stood on a chair), Ann said "I am a diplomat for peace". She knows Crocker, didn't interrupt anyone.....it was profiling for sure.

The jury was selected in the morning. They found her guilty! (the judge was the same one who recently let Midge off with a $500 fine - Midge was back on the Hill the next day and the judge (a woman) mentioned that when sentencing Ann. "I gave your friend some leniency and she was back here the next day"... (Midge didn't do anything but go up there, don't even know how the judge knew that????)

WORST OF ALL, she also got 3 days in jail and they took her away, right there. She looked freaked out, had tears in her eyes. Her sciatic nerve has been so painful it's hard to walk at times. I wasn't there but the group that was came home bummed, bummed, bummed.

Send Ann your good vibes and love. They will give her credit for tonight and she should be home on Friday.....
Next another email report...

Hi All,
I'm forwarding this email to you because I think It's a terrible and scarey step toward what's happening to this country. If you don't know about Ann Wright, she's a former Army Colonel and Diplomat (29 years in service), who has been going around the country speaking out and writing for peace. She was recently turned away from getting into Canada (with Medea Benjamin) though she was invited to speak there by a group of Canadian MP's.

Hi All -
Jenny called from DC to say that Ann Wright's trial today ended with her being sentenced to 3 days in jail, 6 months probation, and 75 hours of community service.

Ann had interrupted Gen. Petraeus' hearing in September when he gave his report to the Senate committee on the troop "surge" in Iraq. She had called out "Swear him in" so that his testimony would be under oath and he could then be held accountable for his statements. She was removed from the hearing room and Petraeus delivered a report.

Today was the trial and Jenny, Ann, Laurie, Joan and several others saw her being led away to jail.

I called Code Pink house and Samantha said they're trying to get more exact info...about an appeal, visiting times, time of release on Friday, etc. I've asked that Liz or Desiree email me details as they get it. I'll pass them along as they come but I intend to go to DC on Friday for the day.

Between this and the Canada-FBI list, it's clear the USG is determined to silence Ann.

Col. Wright is the bravest of the brave warriors we have left in this country. This DC Judge, and I use the term Judge advisedly, can not hold a candle to Ann Wright as far as dedication and committment ot the principles upon which this nation was founded and is supposed to today function.

The neocon right wing and its supporters in Congress and the Courts are running scared (so what's new about that?) and, like that little Dutch boy, keep trying to plug up the holes in the dikes. Since more and more of us are finding the tools to drill holes in the
neocons' dikes, they and their minions keep trying to silence the disenters to their criminal activities.

Ann, citizens of good will everywhere are with you in spirit and soul. Your pain is our pain. When triumph is achieved, we shall all share in it but your place will be among the highest places of honor as a leader of the struggle. God Bless!

Now would be a great time to show your support and drop a little dough in the bucket in honor of brave women like Col. Ann Wright. What better way than to help support the Code Pink House?

It would seem to me Ann was interrupted in the performance of her community service and thrown in jail.
When will the judge start serving the community instead of an anti- American un-Constitutional vested war profiteering personal agenda?

I wanted to thank you for this great read!! I definitely enjoying every little bit of it I have you bookmarked to check out new stuff you post

Ann, you will not receive this until after your ordeal, but know this, that MILLIONS are with you, have been with you, and will be with you, you are not alone, 4 walls, a ceiling and a floor, to yourself, will never stop the millions from keeping you on their minds, close your eyes and see the millions!

I feel like you could probably teach a class on how to make a great blog. This is fantastic! I have to say, what really got me was your design. You certainly know how to make your blog more than just a rant about an issue. Youve made it possible for people to connect. Good for you, because not that many people know what theyre doing.

Thank you, Col. Wright, I am praying for you to be released right away and for the pain of your sciatic nerve to be healed and for this terrible war and regime to be ended soon.

I salute your service in the military and on the lines of the anti-war peace movement.

This article about the very near mutiny of Admiral Fallon and the military brass should be reported on ADS.

Hello Ann,
Richard from Missouri here. Say the word and my friends and I will bring the horses and ropes and bust you out. Oh..... if you are reading this I guess you are already out.

Thanks for all you do.

Hi Ann,

I am one of those millions who support your patriotic activism. You are one of my heroes and history will record you as a true American. I give to Code Pink and urge anyone who reads this to do so also.

This is only one of thousands of outrageous acts of injustice by a government out of control.

Peace,
Kathy

it was ray mcgovern who said 'swear him in!'

ann and ray are my heroes, along with daniel ellsberg. americans who demand the truth!!

Let's all send Ann our thoughts, prayers and good vibes to strengthen her while she's in jail. She will emerge a more powerful figure than ever when this is over. Good going, Ann!

"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out -
because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out -
because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out -
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak for me."

IMPEACH CHENEY & BUSH! ... and Pelosi, too!

and, OBTW, I've seen TWO UFO's!

For anyone up there who's still sleeping in, Capitol Police officer Karen Emory, 36, of Waldorf, MD, has been arrested and charged with a number of suspicious fires that have beeen occuring in Congressional Office building restrooms over the last several weeks. So, what was this all about - One person's sad story or an attempt to phony-up a public safety issue that could then be hung around the necks of peaceful protestors? Feeling suspicious? Feeling paranoid? Feeling an eye growing out of the back of your head? This is a story worth following.

And lastly, Godspeed, Col. Ann. The next time you see me you will be looking at a friend, as always, and you won't even have to use that one in the back of your head. We're in for some scary times, people.

This is a staged event designed to get the soft-hearted "liberals" to feel empathy for Ann Wright.

What's Ann Wright's career?

Diplomat for empire.
Military servant of empire.

She hasn't turned her back on those two things. She continues to see things from an imperial perspective. She isn't a strong critic of Bush-Cheney. She's not taking the Vichy Democrats to task.

Wow.

3 days of jail.

Maybe she'll get a clue on what it's like to be a Black person in America?

Nope.

This is a Chip Berlet stunt.

Carry on, Democrat faithfuls. Continue thinking that the Democrats can be changed from within.

Pretty cynical "Anonymous" . . . got any "FACTS" to go along with that "monkey shit" sandwich you're flinging? . . .;-)

Now, don't get me wrong . . .perhaps if you posted a few photos of YOURSELF standing down riot cops for YOUR beliefs, this ol' fool from North Cackilacki may take your words with a bit more credibility . ..;-)

Or perhaps if you can post any FACTS or EVIDENCE to support your argument against the Colonel.

Not everyone in a uniform is a Patriarchal Fascist, ya know . . .;-)

I come from a U.S. Military family . . . one of my uncles, . .. one of those Crazy Freedom Lovin' Cajuns, . . . used to parachute into occupied areas to teach the underground resistance fighters how to set up Radio systems to fight the Patriarchal Fascists of Musolini and Hitler during World War II . . .

. . . done anything like that lately, "Anonymous"? . . .;-)

Or anything like those brave American Patriot Airmen from Ft. Minot that blew the whistle on the BushCo "Broken Arrow" loose Nukes story?

I've been on this site since this site has been a site . . . I have spent decades working with the military and the intelligence agencies . . .I have been a political activist and strategist since I was in elementary school . . .;-)

If Colonel Ann Wright is a COINTEL-PRO/MK-CHAOS Agent Provocateur out to harm THE MOVEMENT . . . well, I must say she is a DAMN GOOD one. . .;-)

. . . because she has completely "fooled" this ol' fool from North Cackilacki . . .;-)

I think/feel she is one of the bravest and most LOYAL TO THE US CONSTITUTION Officers I have ever seen . . .

My thoughts and prayers are with her . . . during these Dark Times of this Great Republic . . .

Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississipp'

peace.

i was responding to anonymous, hope no confusion! saw you had deleted a comment, thought maybe you thought i was responding to you 8-)

BUSTED!!! You caught me!!! . . .;-)

Yeah, these ol' fool eyes didn't quite "line up" the comments right and I thought at first you were responding to my post. . .

. . . As my grand-dad use to say, "Measure TWICE . .Cut ONCE" . ;-)

My MOST sincere apologies to all . .. ;-)

"Poor young grandson, there's nothing I can say
You'll have to learn, just like me
And that's the hardest way, ooh la la
Ooh la la, la la, yeah
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger.
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger."
- Ooh La La by The Faces

peace.

eyes in the back of my head, they said!

no worries, we are on the same page, eh!

so ann was released after only a few hours, given credit for time served. i also want to say that ann is not a single issue protester looking for the limelight. she was one of a embarrassingly few of us white folks at the Jena6 rally in DC coinciding with the huge march and rally in Jena, MS. and we all came alone to it, just our own concern. it was one of the best rallies i have EVER attended. some incredible poetry and speeches/

You are so way off!
You obviously haven't spent any time with her. Though I admit ANYONE could be a psyops con, it is a lot more likely that you are! I usually don't even respond to anonymous posters, so I will leave it at that.

Col. Wright
Bright Blessing and may the Goddess fill your thoughts with delightful distractions to quickly pass your time in the big house.

What is the name of the Judge!

Andy

I marched with her, stood by her, listened to her and learned from her. She's smart, caring, wise and generous. She's put herself on the line over and over. I'll stand with her whenever I can. I vouch for Ann 1000%, although it's hardly necessary for me to do so. I hope she vouches for me!

-- Mike Hersh

I missed this. Ann Wright is a patriot of the type that few Americans can come close to emulating. She is a tireless worker for the good of our country and world peace (which go together).

Where did they get the ship of fools that were on that jury? This is unbelievable. We love you Ann Wright and wish you a safe and comfortable as possible stay in the pokie. We'll expect to get a report back on it in your next book or article. "Sweet are the uses of adversity." The prison industrial complex will be exposed!

This veteran salutes you.

Ann Wright is one of the finest humanitarians, bravest Americans and down right excellent human beings I have ever met. We must as folks have been saying step it up against this War Criminal regime. Impeach now before it's too late. CD and other actions must be considered, planned and implemented. This isn't just a dastardly deed and provocation, it is a war against free speech.

Col. Wright, I am a veteran that applauds your actions. We are fast losing our country to the minions who want this to be a dictatorship, a religious dictatorship at that. This type action should start a rebellion to take the country back to where the framers of the constitution had it. I applaud your actions...George M. Kesselring,
Major USAF Retired
