Ritter's job well done
One thing that comes through Clear in Scott Ritter's book, "Iraq Confidential," excerpted on AlterNet today, is what a thorough job he and the UNSCOM team did disarming Iraq's WMD programs. A floor mopper with OCD would be jealous of the utter absence of a WMD program after Scott and his crew cleaned the place before they left in 1998. Spic n' span. And Ritter did it in spite of the CIA and U.S. government's efforts to trip him up at every turn.
And this was well known to all. Nobel peace prize winner Mohamed el Baradai could have told it to you, but so could have any Clinton NSC staffer, and certainly any member on the staff of the U.N. Security Council.
It was certainly known to ole' Judy Miller, who, in her recent account, went not to Ritter to find out why no WMD's were found in Iraq, but to a fellow arch-war propagandist, Scooter Libby.
