You’ve got the hand it to the U.N. They really know how to find the right people for the job. From today’s Washington Post (p. A18):
"Chief U.N. weapons inspector Hans Blix rejected yesterday a resignation tendered by one of his Iraq-bound inspectors after reports appeared that the Virginia man lacked a specialized degree and has played a leadership role in sadomasochistic sex clubs." (My italics.)
It gets better.
"Harvey John ’Jack’ McGeorge. . . founded, and has been an officer in, several sadomasochistic sex groups, through which he has taught courses on ’sex slaves’ and various techniques involving knives, ropes, and choking devices. . . McGeorge is a co-founder of Black Rose, a Washington-area S&M club, and a former officer in the Leather Leadership Conference." The story adds that McGeorge was recommended to the U.N. by our State Department. (What was that about people in striped pants??)
Iraqi camels are nervous tonight.
