“The United States is conducting a secret ‘dirty tricks’ campaign against UN Security Council delegations in New York as part of its battle to win votes in favour of war against Iraq.

Details of the aggressive surveillance operation, which involves interception of the home and office telephones and the emails of UN delegates in New York, are revealed in a document leaked to The Observer.”

Basically, it seems that the United States is conducting a high-intensity surveillance campaign against the delegations from some of the current members of the Security Council, in an attempt to find out how each of them will be voting. The administration would then use this information to try and change minds before the actual vote.
