Chief U.N. Inspectors Cite An Encouraging Iraqi "Change of Heart"; Democracy Now! Confronts Chief Inspector Hans Blix About No-Fly Zones

February 10, 2003

In Baghdad, the Chief U.N. weapons inspectors emerged from talks with Iraqi officials and said they saw signs of an Iraqi "change of heart" over disarmament demands. But they have not seen a dramatic breakthrough that could halt the march towards war.

The inspectors also said further U.N. inspections are preferable to a U.S.attack.

Democracy Now! correspondent Jeremy Scahill reports from the press conference. He also confronted Chief Inspector Hans Blix about the U.S. so-called "no-fly zones," which are not recognized by the U.N.
