I first formed an opinion about Scott Ritter in the early 90s based on some network’s clip showing him--then a UN arms inspector--arguing with some of his Iraqi contacts. Poorly... Fitting every part of the role of the Ugly American.
Some years later he spoke at some local hall and I went. In the flesh he was an improvement.
That was the last I thought about him until the Huffington Post last week headlined those comments of his on Lausanne which I linked to in Caviar anyone? I recommend taking a look at that link. Whichever side you’re on, Ritter raises issues which should be dealt with although he himself, like me, seems pro Lausanne.
