Dan Kennedy raises the right questions regarding Scott Ritter.

I never considered Ritter to be a particularly effective spokesman against the war. I think his critics tended to twist his words to exaggerate the contradictions in his positions, but there were nonetheless some unresolved issues there. But, as Dan Kennedy says:

There has still barely been a word about this in the national media. But the fact remains that someone leaked sealed court documents about a leading (if misleading) critic of the White House's Iraq policy on the eve of a likely military invasion. Is anyone in the media going to get to the bottom of this?

This even more relevant now that the Feds have apparently gotten ahold of the case and are considering filing charges.
