Gosh, do you think Scott might have been blackmailed regarding his UN work on Iraq WMDs?

Ritter was one of the U.N.'s chief weapons inspectors in Iraq from 1991 to 1998. He resigned after accusing the United States and the U.N. of failing to get tough with Saddam Hussein. Later, he said Iraq had destroyed its weapons of mass destruction, and he became a vocal critic of the U.S. invasion.

The UN position was a joke at best. A pitiful joke. Whatever WMD a country did not wish to show (at best, what was not obvious by satellite), the UN inspector for weapons of mass destruction would not be able to see. Even Scott Ritter would have had to wonder what sense it made, but hey it was a job as a feckless functionary.

Too bad for Ritter that he learned too late that thinking with the little head instead of the big one can get a fellow in trouble mighty quick. Especially when the little head is insane. Little girls? I don’t know about his native Netherlands (IIRC) but it’s a huge no-no in the USA. They probably will put him in protective solitary so none of these drop-the-soap incidents that have been wished for here will occur, but still it sucks to be him.

He got paid alright!

He got paid by Saddam Hussein to make a movie declaring that their were no WMDs in Iraq, and that the Hussein regime were nothing more than peace loving doves!

I think the Hussein regime ratted on him when the film convinced no one of Saddam’s lack of treachery.

I’m hoping what we’ve heard about what happens to kiddy freaks in jail is true when it comes to little Johnny.
