Saddam's Secret Campaign to Stop the War - December B
Accuracy in Media ^ | December 23, 2004 | AIM Report:

Posted on 12/25/2004 7:14:06 PM PST by coffee260

The U.S. is engaged in a bloody war in Iraq for the purpose of eliminating the remnants of a terrorist regime, foreign terrorists, and bringing democracy to Iraq and the region. It is a big gamble that has put radical Islam on the defensive around the world. But shocking evidence demonstrates that controversial former U.S. Marine and former U.N. weapons inspector Scott Ritter, who now writes for the anti-American Arab "news" organization Al Jazeera, was involved in a controversial effort to stop the war by enlisting prominent personalities in a "peace" campaign.

If Ritter had been successful, Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein could still be in power threatening his neighbors and the U.S. and rebuilding his capability for producing weapons of mass destruction with money stolen from the corrupt U.N. oil-for-food program.

Ritter's latest "contribution" to the debate over Iraq is an article for the Al Jazeera website warning that "the United States cannot win" in Iraq. Ritter, now identified as "an independent consultant," has a checkered past that includes a second marriage to a young woman from the Republic of Georgia, who had served Ritter as a Russian-supplied "escort" and translator; being caught in an Internet sex sting by law enforcement; and the acceptance of $400,000 from an Iraqi-born American businessman, Shakir Alkafajii, to produce an anti-American film about Iraq. Alkafajii has since been exposed for having taken oil vouchers from Saddam as part of the corrupt U.N.-run oil-for-food program.

Ritter says famed investigative journalist Seymour Hersh kept it confidential

I'm still reading the article ... But wasn't Seymour Hersh the jerk that leaked the prison story?

Yes! He also couldn't reveal one source of his while using all anonymous contacts.

i'm surprised they'd even deal with him, him being a molester of little girls and all, where as the goathumpers are partial to little boys...

"Radical Islam"? Or Islam in general? What's the difference?

Ritter is a known pedophile.
It's amazing that the pigs at Al Jazeera would publish something authored by Ritter.
