During Operation Desert Storm, Scott was the ballistic missile advisor to General Schwarzkopf. Later he assumed the role of the lead United Nations weapons inspector for seven years overseeing the disarmament of Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction and biological agents program. He was one of the most forceful critics of the Bush administration’s claims that Sadaam Hussain possessed WMDs.
