Secretary of State Colin Powell laid out America's case for military action against Iraq Wednesday, providing "irrefutable and undeniable" evidence that Saddam Hussein is hiding weapons of mass destruction.
Powell presented tape recordings, satellite photos and statements from informants at a meeting of the U.N. Security Council to prove that Iraq has not complied with the order that it disarm. He also told the assembled nations that Iraq has links to Usama bin Laden's Al Qaeda terror organization.
"Iraq and terrorism go back decades," Powell said.
Powell-ful: Did he make the case?
A sample of your responses:
What convinced me in the Powell Report was the audio intercept when the officer mentioned [IAEA head] "El Baradei" by name.

Secretary of State Powell made a compelling case for immediate action. Of course, the national bird of France being the ostrich, their rejection of the obvious is a given.
I think Gen. Powell's word should have been enough he did not have to present such a filmsy presentation (made up by God knows who?, it was not up to his standard. I was looking forward to a presentation which matched his stature.)
Very weak point in Powell's presentation: He says the Iraqi intelligence 'always' found out where the inspections were going to take place a few days in advance, so they could move the 'stuff.' Is the US (and UN) so weak at keeping its own communications secret? Doesn't convince...
Anyone with any intelligence at all can see that the Iraqi's are being decietful. But as we all know there are far too many stupid people in this world who are willing to listen to and believe lies about the U.S. we need to get this thing done now, are the smoking gun will be another smoking crater in the center of one of our cities.

Fortunately for us, Powell has not found the smoking gun which is an "after the fact"; however, he has found the gun, the bullets, and the finger on the trigger! Isn't it ironic that those who have blamed this administration for not reacting to information before 9/11, are the same ones who are in denial of the information now!
