A former chief United Nations weapons inspector is accused of contacting what he thought was a 15-year-old girl in an Internet chat room, engaging in a sexual conversation and showing himself masturbating on a Web camera.

Scott Ritter of Delmar, N.Y., who served as chief U.N. weapons inspector in Iraq from 1991-98 and who was an outspoken critic of the second Bush administration in the run-up to the war in Iraq, is accused of contacting what turned out to be a Barrett Township police officer posing undercover as a teen girl.

The police affidavit gives the following account:

Officer Ryan Venneman was posing as 15-year-old "Emily" in an online chat room when he was contacted by someone using the name "Delmarm4fun." This person, later identified as Ritter, told "Emily" he was a 44-year-old male from Albany, N.Y.

"Emily" told Ritter she was a 15-year-old girl from the Poconos, at which point Ritter asked for a picture other than the one "Emily" had posted on her account. Ritter then sent her a link to his Web camera and began to masturbate on camera

Ease off the guy. Tons of people commit this crime. The only reason we crash down om him so hard is because every one knows him and many people dislike him.

Is there something else you'd like to share with the forum?.....:ssst:

sex with a 15 yr old is not pedophilia. wrong, but not pedophilia.
You make a good point.

I think tht the most disturbing part of this is that if his level of self control and integrity can be called into quetion in such a dramatic manner, in what other areas might he have behaved in a damaging manner.

ALBANY, New York (CNN) -- Scott Ritter, a former U.S. Marine and U.N. weapons inspector who has been an outspoken critic of a possible war with Iraq, was arrested in 2001 and charged with a misdemeanor after allegedly communicating with an undercover officer posing as a 16-year-old girl, a source close to the investigation has told CNN.

Ritter confirmed the arrest in an interview with CNN Wednesday but declined to confirm any detail about the nature of the case.

CNN.com - Ex-arms inspector, war foe Ritter confirms 2001 arrest - Jan. 23, 2003

Deja vu.

If its not pedophilia then what are the stings trying to snare?

15-16 year olds?

Please explain the logic by which his repellent sexual orientation discredits his professional expertise.

Oh look a smear campaign.

What does this have to do with his former job as weapons inspector?

The answer is nothing.

Moving on...

If a cop were found to have done this (or pretty much any crime), every one of the cases he/she worked on would be in doubt.

But, logically speaking, he's done far more to torpedo the credibility of his work than this. You know, like taking money from Saddam.

Shows he's excellent at misinformation, how many knew of his issues prior to this sting?

Not really. If he was shown to screw around with evidence then yes.

Actually, everything he said he's been vindicated on.

Attacking the messenger really isn't an effective, or honorable, method of proving a point.

No, really. :roll:

You don't have to prove a point if you're not the one making the accusations.

As for the substance of his claims, zero point in having any discussion on it with you.

Be so kind as to tell me what the "left" has to do with this ?
Your response is overly judgmental, or is this a standard attribute of the "right".
See, I can be nasty and stupid as well....its so easy.

And, exactly what is this "man" lying about?

I'm really upset.

As one of the top criminal defense attorneys in the Poconos, why didn't he hire me? :confused: ;)

What better reason do you need? So ****-tard Scott Ritter is a pedo on top of being an idiot. The same guy who so vocally spoke out about the "hype" about Iran?

Oh the cosmic folly... pedo bear is laughing.

No problem. Anyone whos argued the merits of the democratic lefts contention that GWB 'lied' to get us into Iraq to get thier oil will have at one point or another used Mr Pedo here as a source to back their claims that Iraq was harmless,disarmed and no threat to anyone. This was Ritters stance afterall in the lead up to the war was it not,who could blame them.Alot of folks however forget Ritter was not always such an apologist for Saddam.

Heres his resignation letter:

RITTER RESIGNATION LETTER

The sad truth is that Iraq today is not disarmed
anywhere near the level required by Security Council resolutions.

Iraq has lied to the Special Commission and the world since day one
concerning the true scope and nature of its proscribed programs and
weapons systems. This lie has been perpetuated over the years through
systematic acts of concealment. It was for the purpose of uncovering
Iraq's mechanism of concealment, and in doing so gaining access to the
hidden weapons, components and weapons programs, that you created a
dedicated capability to investigate Iraq's concealment activities, which
I have had the privilege to head. During the period of time that this
effort has been underway, the Commission has uncovered indisputable
proof of a systematic concealment mechanism, run by the Presidency of
Iraq and protected by the Presidential security forces

Hes either lying in the letter or lying a few years later.Take your pick.

Hes a liar one way or the other.

Ive always wondered what flipped the switch.
