Ritter in Iraq
Ex-UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter is in Iraq, sticking up for Saddam Hussein.
“The truth is Iraq is not a threat to its neighbors and it is not acting in a manner which threatens anyone outside its borders,” Ritter said. “Military action against Iraq cannot be justified.”
U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell disputed Ritter’s comments on “Fox News Sunday,” saying the remarks came from “somebody who’s not in the intelligence chain any longer.”
“Why don’t they (the Iraqis) say any time, any place, anywhere, bring them (the inspectors) in, everybody come in, we are clean?” Powell said. “The reason is, they’re not clean. And we have to find out what they have and what we’re going to do about it.”
