WASHINGTON, November 29, 2002 ( – The laissez-faire attitude regarding abnormal sexuality in North America, has created international scandal as the peculiar sexual interests of a United Nations weapons inspector set to go to Iraq has been made public.  American Harvey John “Jack” McGeorge, a former Secret Service officer who once served in the U.S. Marines, was nominated to the U.N. inspections team by the U.S.

However, McGeorge, in addition to offering highly priced seminars on weapons, offers seminars in his capacity as a 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”.

McGeorge, dismissed the concerns haughtily.  “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 told the Washington Post.  However, the dubious selection has enabled Iraqi criticism and embarrassment for the United Nations.

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.”
