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 online conversation occurred in February 2009 …
This is the third time that Ritter – a weapon of masturbation, if you will – has been caught prowling for underage girls. Whatever happened to that ferocious American gun culture we’re always hearing so much about?
UPDATE II. Jay Leno:
His lawyer said his client was just inspecting his weapon.
UPDATE III. Currently free on $25,000 bail, Ritter is due to face court on March 9.
