In the summer of 2002, as the Senate was preparing to conduct hearings about alleged weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in Iraq and the possibility of war, former Chief Weapons Inspector in Iraq and U.S. Marine Major Scott Ritter came down to Washington from his home in upstate New York to share his first-hand knowledge with as many senators as possible.
To those who let him in the door, he showed that the "intelligence" adduced to support U.S. claims that Iraq still had WMD was fatally flawed. This was the same "intelligence" that Senate Intelligence Committee chair Jay Rockefeller later branded "unsubstantiated, contradicted, or even non-existent."
Sen. Hillary Clinton would not let Ritter in her door.
Good for Hillary. Ray McGovern never gets how stupid he looks nor does he get the basic facts. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was a senator then, yes, but she was also a former First Lady. Which means a bit more detail is provided on would-be-guests than if she were a senator who had never been First Lady. It is probably highly likely that her detail did a check and discovered that Mr. Ritter had been arrested twice already as a sexual predator.
Why would see meet with a man arrested twice for being a sexual predator, for attempting to arrange sexual meetings with underage girls?
Crazy McGovern leaves that out. Of course, he also leaves out that in November of 2008, Scott Ritter got busted for the same thing yet again.
Scott Ritter belongs behind bars and on a list of sexual predators. He is not someone to be cited. He is a danger to the community and that anyone would cite such a person at this late date goes a long way towards explaining their hatred of females.
Mr. McGovern is a sexist and needs to get honest about what he did in military intelligence. Those of you who are wrongly trusting Mr. McGovern should demand the truth about that period.
