Secretary of State Colin Powell plans to support his words with evidence as he makes his case for war against Iraq today at the United Nations.
Top C-I-A officials with de-classified intelligence material will accompany Powell at the meeting.
The evidence may include recordings of conversations between Iraqi officials regarding their country's weapons programs.
But with many countries against military action, Powell has his work cut out for him.
Scott Rapoport is at the U-N this morning, and joins us now with an update.
