Scott Ritter
  • Born: July 15, 1961
  • Nationality: American
  • Profession: United Nations Weapons Inspector (resigned)

William Scott Ritter Jr. was a United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq from 1991 to 1998, and later a critic of United States foreign policy in the Middle East. Prior to the invasion of Iraq in March 2003, Ritter stated that Iraq possessed no significant weapons of mass destruction (WMD) capabilities, becoming "the loudest and most credible skeptic of the Bush administration’s contention that Hussein was hiding weapons of mass destruction." He received harsh criticism from the political establishment but became a popular antiwar figure and occasional talk show commentator as a result of his stance.
