The Most Dangerous Man in America

Scott Ritter, former head of U.N. arms inspections in Iraq, has written an essay that ought to be entitled "The Most Dangerous Man in America." If he succeeds in ushering in a war with Iran, he'll earn the title as the most dangerous man in the world. Here's a quote from Ritter:

The absolute worst of the rot that has infected America because of the policies and actions of the Bush administration has originated from the office of the vice president. The nonsensical response to the terror attacks of 9/11, seeking a "global war" versus defending the rule of law at home and abroad, taking the lead in spreading the lies that got us involved in Iraq, legitimizing torture as a tool of American jurisprudence, advocating for warrantless wiretappings of U.S.-based communications (regardless of what the Fourth Amendment says against illegal search and seizure), and pushing for an expansion of America’s global conflict into Iran-all can be traced back to the person of Cheney as the point of origin.
