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.
