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.
