Ratting on Ritter

Hmm. We always knew there was something suspicious about Scott "I-See-Nothink" Ritter's change of heart with regard to Iraq. It now appears that the $400,000 that he received from Shakir Khafaji may have been part of UNSCAM (aka the "Oil-For-Food" scandal). This doesn't really help to explain anything, (we already knew about the money, and Ritter was starting to go soft on Saddam even before he received it, according to the Slate article linked above), but it does add confirmation to the theory that the money was in some sense intended as hush money. My sense is we haven't heard the last of this particular story.
