Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month.

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.

We now go live to the United Nations with U.N. correspondent Andreas Zumach, where Security Council members are gathering for Powell’s address.

Germany has just taken over as chair of the U.N. Security Council. Zumach points out that the US ­ without the consultation of Germany ­ called for Powell to address the Council today, February 5th. But on this day in Germany, U.N. Inspectors Hans Blix and Mohamed ElBaradei were scheduled to meet with German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer. Blix and ElBaradei had to cancel the meeting.

Guest:

  • Andreas Zumach, Geneva-based UN correspondent with the German newspaper Die Tageszeitung. In December Zumach obtained an unedited copy of Iraq’s 12,000-page report to the United Nations, including portions on how Iraq acquired its weapon capability from Germany, the U.S. and others.
