In 1998, Scott Ritter resigned from the United Nations weapons inspection team
and has been the most outspoken critic of U.S. policy toward Baghdad.
He has argued that the inspection team, UNSCOM, was a nest of U.S. spies and
that Iraq was disarmed long ago. But he first made the headlines in 1997, when
as a senior UNSCOM member he
was accused by Iraq of being an American spy himself. He is the author
