For a while I thought the intelligence community might have entrapped former U.N. weapons inspector Scott Ritter into approaching a 16 year-old girl in a Burger King in retaliation for his public insistence that Saddam Hussein had destroyed his weapons of mass destruction. But, it turns out that Ritter really is a pervert who likes to approach underage girls on the internet.
Officer Ryan Venneman was posing as 15-year-old “Emily” in an online chat room when he was contacted by someone using the name “Delmarm4fun.” This person, later identified as Ritter, told “Emily” he was a 44-year-old male from Albany, N.Y.
“Emily” told Ritter she was a 15-year-old girl from the Poconos, at which point Ritter asked for a picture other than the one “Emily” had posted on her account. Ritter then sent her a link to his Web camera and began to masturbate on camera.
“Emily” asked Ritter for his cell phone number, which he provided.
Ritter again asked “Emily” how old she was. Told she was 15, Ritter said he didn’t realize she was 15 and turned off his webcam, saying he didn’t want to get in trouble.
Ritter told “Emily” he had been fantasizing about having sex with her, to which she replied: “Guess you turned it off …”
Ritter then said: “You want to see it finish,” reactivated his webcam and continued masturbating and ejaculated on camera.
There seems to be a never ending supply of these creeps in our society based on MSNBC‘s ability to produce weekly programs exposing them. The internet has some strange side-effects.
