Powell is addressing the United Nations today, offering what the White House believes is conclusive proof that Iraq is hiding banned weapons.
Among the evidence Powell is showing the security council are satellite photos he says indicate that Iraq is moving weapons of mass destruction in an effort to hide them from inspectors.
Powell has also played a tape of an intercepted conversation involving two Iraqi officers that he says also proves Iraq is hiding weapons.
He says some of his evidence comes from ''people who have risked their lives'' to show what Saddam Hussein ''is really up to.''

A Virginia state trooper was shot while trying to arrest a man who was allegedly planning to poison the state's water supplies.
Authorities say his injuries were NOT life- threatening, and they're not releasing his name.
Police say the shooting happened last night, as officers tried to arrest Ipolito (ih-poh-LEE'-toh) Campos at his home on Virginia's eastern shore.
They say another occupant of the home fired at the officer before police returned fire -- killing one person.
Campos was taken into custody, but authorities didn't give any details about the person who was killed.
The Joint Terrorism Task Force says there's no credible evidence that Campos was plotting to poison Virginia's waters, but officials are investigating.
