Major Harrison Mann resigns over Israel policyMaj. Harrison Mann, a Jewish American working for the Defense Intelligence Agency, has resigned from the U.S. Army, citing the United States' "nearly unqualified support for the government of Israel," which he claims has "enabled and empowered the killing and starvation of tens of thousands of innocent Palestinians."

Mann, a 13-year U.S. Army veteran who worked in the Middle East bureau, sat down with CBS News senior national correspondent Jim Axelrod for his first television interview since resigning his post. Mann submitted his resignation in November, and his separation from the military became effective Monday.

More than six U.S. government officials have publicly resigned in protest of the United States' support for Israel's war, but Mann is the first from the military and intelligence community.

"I understand if people are angry that I chose to speak about this, but I didn't feel like I had much of a choice," Mann told Axelrod.
