See and Hear:
Ray McGovern, is a retired CIA officer turned political activist. McGovern was a Federal employee under seven U.S. presidents over 27 years and presented the morning intelligence briefings at the White House for many years. With 15 other VIPS, McGovern participated in a protest of torture and returned his Intelligence Commendation Award medallion. He argued that he did "not wish to be associated, however remotely, with an agency engaged in torture." In May, McGovern challenged Donald Rumsfeld at a public forum.

Then she spent 16 years in the U.S. diplomatic corps; served in Somalia, Sierra Leone, Uzbekistan, and Kyrgyzstan and reopened the U.S. embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan in December 2001. She was one of the three diplomats who resigned in March 2003 in opposition to the war in Iraq. She now counts herself in the rank of the peacemakers, not the war makers.
