Ritter: Israel secretly guided UN Iraq inspectors

William M. Arkin, who writes on national security issues for the Washington Post's website, reports a story which hasn't had much attention among pro-Israel blogs: According to a new book by Scott Ritter, formerly head UN weapons inspector in Iraq, the whole inspection regime was secretly guided by Israeli intelligence.

Now, Ritter clearly has his axes to grind, having switched from head UN inspector to leading defender of Saddam. His credibility is somewhat questionable, one could say. But whether or not this story is true, it has the potential for a major PR disaster. Watch this one carefully.

This could be very interesting.

I agree with you.

But I think the scariest part to this is that you are seeing more "blame the Jews" rhetoric appearing in the so-called mainstream media.

We are in for some interesting times I fear.
