Back in 2003, May 31 to be precise, I posted this humorous warning sign:
Now Instapundit brings us this news:
Sex sting in Poconos nets former chief U.N. weapons inspectorI'm not going to reproduce the sexually graphic portion of the story, but this is where that warning sign came from:
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 New York Post reported Ritter had been caught in a similar case involving a 14-year-old girl in April 2001, but that he was not charged.Instapundit asks, "So you don’t think Scott Ritter was blackmailable, or anything, and that this might have had something to do with his sudden change of position?"
In 1998, Ritter resigned from the United Nations Special Commission weapons inspection team and has been the most outspoken critic of U.S. policy toward Baghdad.
