Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

For sometime the Iraqi Government has charged that the United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM), created by the U.N. Security Council to force Iraq to eliminate its weapons of mass destruction, was an intelligence operation under American supervision. Now both the Boston Globe and the Washington Post allege that U.S. intelligence agencies gained information by using the U.N. as cover for its eavesdropping operations. They say U.N. head Kofi Annan was given "convincing evidence that the United Nations Arms inspector helped" American intelligence in its spying operation.
