Crackbrained...

If you wondered, back when Scott Ritter was in the news, whether he had a screw loose, wonder no more. He's a nutbag, a la Noam Chomsky or Ramsay Clark, or all the other mud worms who ally with any monster as long as it's anti-American...

David Asman writes: According to Mr. Ritter, “The highly vaunted U.S. military machine, laurelled and praised for its historic march on Baghdad (search) in March and April of 2003, today finds itself a broken force, on the defensive in a land that it may occupy in part, but does not control.”

Offering no proof whatsoever, Mr. Ritter accuses the U.S. of conspiring with Iraqi assassination squads, and that, not foreign terrorists or former Saddam officials, is what started the post-war violence in Iraq: “Having started the game of politically motivated assassination, the U.S. has once again found itself trumped by forces inside Iraq it does not understand, and as such will never be able to defeat.”

As for the enemy, which he calls a “genuine grassroots national liberation movement,” Ritter is generous: “History will eventually depict as legitimate the efforts of the Iraqi resistance to destabilise and defeat the American occupation forces and their imposed Iraqi collaborationist government.”...
