    UN Weapons Inspector From US Has Serious S&M Fetish
    By Kim Sengupta in Baghdad

    The United Nations inspection mission in Iraq has
    been fully-prepared for controversy over chemical,
    biological and nuclear weapons. Instead, the first
    crisis it faces concerns sado-masochism,
    pansexuality and leather fetishes. Senior officials
    were trying to explain yesterday how such a crucial
    mission came to include an American former Secret
    Service officer who has no specialised degree in any
    of the relevant sciences, but considerable expertise
    in unusual sexual practices.

    Harvey John "Jack" McGeorge was nominated for the
    mission by the United States government. The
    revelation of his personal details has also led to
    the disclosure that no background checks have been
    made on any of the monitors.

    Mr McGeorge, who once served in the US Marines, is
    waiting in New York to join the Unmovic (UN
    Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission)
    in Baghdad.

    He runs a business offering seminars on
    "weaponisation of chemical and biological agents" at
    $595 (£380) a session, and advertises his services
    as a "certified United Nations inspector".

    An internet search has also revealed that Mr
    McGeorge offers training seminars of a different
    kind involving "various acts conducted with knives
    and ropes".

    This relates to his role as co-founder of Black
    Rose, a "pansexual S&M group" based in Washington,
    and also as a founder of Leather Leadership
    Conference IN, which "produces training sessions for
    current and potential leaders of the
    sadomasochistic/ leather/fetish community". Mr
    McGeorge said a State Department official invited
    him to apply for a job with the UN team, and neither
    the Americans nor the United Nations asked about his
    S&M background. He was interviewed by Hans Blix, the
    chief inspector, and trained with Unmovic in
    February 2001.

    He told The Washington Post: "I have been very
    upfront with people in the past about what I do, and
    it has never prevented me from getting a job or
    doing a service. I am who I am. I am not ashamed of
    who I am -- not one bit." He added that he was now
    considering resigning his UN post.

    Iraqi officials, who have always claimed that
    American members of the team may not be what they
    seem, were still digesting the news. A Foreign
    Ministry official said: "It is very disturbing that
    the Americans have put forward someone like this.
    Apart from his strange sexual life, he does not have
    the academic qualification for these complex issues.
    And he is also a former member of their Secret
    Service. How many other of these types are they
    getting into the UN mission?"

    A UN official said in Baghdad: "It is very
    difficult. We are hoping the man will now resign,
    and we can draw a veil over this." Ewen Buchanan, an
    Unmovic spokesman, said: "As the UN, with people
    applying from many countries, we do not have the
    capacity to carry out background checks. I believe
    Mr McGeorge is technically very competent. He knows
    his subject, which is weapons."

    A State Department official confirmed that Mr
    McGeorge was recommended to Unmovic, and that no
    background checks were made. The Bush administration
    has been accused of undermining the Iraq mission,
    and US officials have claimed that Mr Blix had
    chosen an inexperienced team, leaving out inspectors
    with previous experience of working in Iraq who were
    deemed to be too aggressive in pursuing their task.
    There have also been complaints from Washington that
    not enough American and British personnel were
    chosen for the teams.
