Former chief United Nations weapons inspector Scott Ritter, 48, has been arrested in a Pennsylvania sex sting involving a lewd Internet conversation with a person he thought was a 15-year-old girl. The charges are reportedly supported by a videotape of Ritter that (if true) makes a plea likely.
Ritter achieved fame as the chief U.N. weapons inspector in Iraq from 1991-98 and a critic of the war in Iraq. Conservatives attacked him at the time for his views, which were largely vindicated. However, Ritter was hounded by his past and his alleged habit of incriminating himself to undercover officers. He was reportedly charged in a June 2001 sex sting in New York. While dismissed, those charges reportedly involve attempted child endangerment with a person he thought was a 16-year-old girl at a fast-food restaurant. The girl was actually an undercover police officer. News reports also allege that he was arrested in April 2001 in a case involving a 14-year-old girl. Again, he was never charged.
The facts of the current arrest are pretty disgusting so I will allow the original article fill in the details. Judging from the facts and videotape described in this arrest, this is not likely to result in another dismissal. Indeed, if true, most lawyers would push for a plea.

The United States Federal Executive Branch knowingly alleges false [manufactured] allegations, charges of molestation, pedophilia, aberrant sexual practices against all its critics: Julian Assange of Wikileaks charged twice with unprotected sex with two adult females AFTER RELEASING federal government communications in to wars U.S. is losing; three attorneys, investigators representing family of Karen Silkwood in the USDC, District of Oklahoma wrongful death/negligence suit against nuclear fuel rod manufacturer Kerr-McGee were purposely libeled by manufactured federal police reports alleging they had sex with under-aged girls or aberrant sex with adult females (though all three were married); Libya’s Qadaffi was falsely alleged to be a transvestite immediately after Reagan administration unsuccessfully attempted to kill Qadaffi using U.S. Air Force jets: they killed his infant daughter, several family members, associates at his Tripoli residence in the middle of the night, without warning. Mr. Ritter is in very good company: all effective U.S. Federal Executive Branch critics are targeted with a disruption campaign directed at their finances, assets, income, targeted assasinations, mail intercepts, false sexual allegations. No other national government is so corrupt, so pathologically criminal that they would knowingly, falsely allege child molestation, pedophilia charges, allegations [i.e., the most heinous hunman crime is knowingly, falsely alleging child molestation against an adversary solely because that adversary affectively criticizes your corrupt, unlawful practices].
The affidavit says that Ritter started the conversation with the girl and then for some reason showed his face on camera. The video apparently was not recorded and the officer had to recognize Ritter from the photos he saw later. It is also not clear why he gave his full name and location. Is it so that he would not be confused with other Scott or Bill Ritters? Scott Ritter seem to act very fullish for an intelligence agent, that had been previously caught in a very similar sting. Someone seems to have created a very easy case for the local police office that had only few such cases, one of which happens to be Scott Ritter. In conspirators’ defense, they did not try to totally destroy Ritter, even though they could. He may not get any time at all. Yet, his reputation is badly damaged already. The smear campaign could have failed, and then no one would have heard it. But it has succeeded and it is all over the news.
But why bother? The Iraq war is behind. This time it could be about Iran. Ritter is the only voice in the Western world arguing that Iran is not trying to acquire nuclear weapons. The talk from the previous smear campaign seems to have faded away as he did manage to get on to cable news couple times, so he was put down again. It does seem like a cycle. The only thing missing is a war on Iran…
Yes, sir-ree…them Chimpy bush boys sure know how to have a good time… yes sir.. got another beer??
Will we ever, as a society, be rid of these clowns…??
DAMN! How unfortunate. He was so right on Iraq. Shame. What a sick bastard.
