This day in history February 5

On February 5, 2003 Secretary of State Colin Powell requested support from the United Nations against Iraq.

Colin Powell requested international support in military action against Iraq during a presentation to the United Nations Security Council. Powell used satellite photos and communication transcripts to illustrate Iraq's deception in the development of weapons of mass destruction. Powell had recordings of top-tier Iraqi military and government officials as evidence that the country was intentionally hiding and removing questionable material from inspection sites.
