Scott Ritter – hero, patriot and peacewager – may have changed his views once or twice about Iraq, but on certain other issues he remains remarkably consistent:

Scott Ritter mug shot

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?

Quite a history:

N.Y. media: Ritter sought girls twice

Web sex sting of former weapons inspector gets national discussion on Rush Limbaugh

WTEN-TV, the ABC affiliate in Albany, is reporting that Ritter contacted the “teen-age girl” twice in the spring of 2001, and that he has since undergone court-ordered sex-offender counseling from a psychologist in New York’s capital.

UPDATE. Ritter’s 15-year-old online playpal was not only a cop, she was a dude. Way to inspect those weapons, peace-wager.
