Fellow PDDer June is also very active in Pacem in Terris.
Now, I know that the words "peace movement" give some Democrats the willies. But, that is because they (and I include myself) associate supporting peace with being crushed by conservative at the voting booth. Here is the thing - the "peaceniks" were onto Bush's flat out bullshit very early on. So, if you want to give the peace people some props they are having thier annual dinner and have a big name speaker lined up.

Ray McGovern has become a outspoken critic of the Iraq war and the Bush Administration and can be widely read in the print media; seen/heard on TV and radio; and observed broadly on the Internet. His career as a CIA analyst spanned 27 years from the administration of John F. Kennedy to that of George H. W. Bush. In January 2003, a handful of intelligence community alumni/ae, including Ray, created Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS). VIPS now includes 55 former professionals from CIA and other US and Allied intelligence agencies.
