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.

Yesterday, we aired a landmark debate between the former CIA director James Woolsey and former US Attorney GeneralRamsey Clark. Hussein Ibish from the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee was also on the program. The focusof that show was will the US attack Iraq? Today we are going to continue on that theme and take a close look at theBush administration, big oil and Iraq. Dick Cheney has just wrapped up his 11 nation tour of Arab countries as he hastried to drum up support for what the White House calls "action" against Iraq.
