There is a reason that all people in positions of power over others must be background-checked down to the last gnat’s eyebrow.

Former U.N. chief weapons inspector Scott Ritter has been found guilty of unlawful contact with a minor and five of six other charges …jury deliberated for more than seven hours…

“The graphic 30-minute video of Ritter and the defendant’s own words, when you matched them up, it was obvious,” said juror …

During the trial, the defense portrayed Ritter as a family man and decorated veteran, even suggesting he could be a victim of a conspiracy for his outspoken criticism of the 2003 Iraq war. [Boooosh did this, too?!?]

…the prosecution pointed to similar accusations surrounding Ritter in New York state back in 2001. In both incidents, he was accused of arranging to meet with teenage girls – who turned out to be undercover cops.

Ritter was never arrested in the first case, receiving only a warning, and the charges were later dropped in the second incident after he agreed to seek professional help.

…Ritter, 49, of Delmar, N.Y., was the U.N.’s chief weapons inspector in Iraq following the first Gulf War. He accused the United States government and U.N. of failing to take action when Iraq blocked inspectors from suspected weapons sites in 1998, leading to his resignation.

But he later became an outspoken critic of the 2003 Iraq war, insisting the country had destroyed its weapons of mass destruction.

Because when ya got crap like this in your background, dang near anybody can make you do dang near anything.

just sayin’…

    Claire,
    You’re spot-on as usual.
    [insert list of personal flaws and problems that may be exploitable]
    Doesn’t take much to blackmail an otherwise honest man who’s trying to hide an embarrassing fact. That’s why security guys hold confessionals (forms and overtness vary) — if it ain’t a secret, it’s worthless as blackmail. If you’re lyin’, you can’t be trusted to sweep floors.

    If you’re lying you can’t be trusted to sweep floors but you can be the President of the U.S.–

    I can’t believe he let his daughters go to the trial.

    Can you imagine what it was like for the male cops on the other end of the webcam, while Ritter was performing? They probably fainted from laughter.

    Compulsive sexual behavior is a very destructive thing. For people with these problems, the Internet is like a crack house on wheels. Of course, it’s hard to know whether a massive ego like Ritter’s is subject to remorse, and whether this behavior was compulsive or just something he figured was entitled to do.

    It is tragic that some people are made with desires that hurt others, and I feel awfully sorry for them as long as they do not act on those desires- the “good pedophiles”.

    The ones who act on the desires, like this creature, are monsters. There are plenty of them.

    Of course he made his wife and child go. He will rape a fourteen year old, he won’t make his wife and children go to court to save him from prison?

    Scott Ritter is proof that preverts can be smart & stupid using the same brane housing container! It is caused by stray voltage in the wiring from the pecker to the noggin……Prison + buttfucking will not provide a wheatstone bridge in the wiring……

    I remember Ritter from the old war days. He was no knight (=”ritter” in German) in armor in those days, either.
