Retired Army Col. Ann Wright, a Honolulu resident, is reportedly being held by the Israeli government after commandos stormed a flotilla of ships taking aid to Palestinians in Gaza, killing 9 and wounding dozens of others.
Wright is a former state department official who resigned in protest over the Iraq war. She was on one of the ships attempting to take supplies to Palestinians cut off by the Israelis in Gaza.
Wright has been highly critical of Israel.
“They've been able to get away with any criminal act and violation of international law, and America protects them," Wright said in an interview conducted aboard one of the ships just before the attack.
