It is said, that "embedded" reporters of the U.S. allied nations are better informed by the U.S. officials than others. That means that e.g. British, Spanish or Australian Journalists have the more precise information. So look at the international press below. By the way other reporters may have their own sources of information.
The rules relate to "embedded" reporters - journalists who agree to give up a certain degree of freedom in return for permission to travel with units of the U.S. military. Around 700 embedded journalists accompany the US-led coalition forces in the attack on Iraq.
Reporters Without Borders warned U.S. authorities not to obstruct the media in its reporting of the expected imminent war in Iraq. It expressed concern that the U.S. military might censor journalists officially allowed to work among U.S. forces and that those who opted to work independently would not be protected. It also called on U.S. forces not to destroy Iraqi media facilities. ...read more

Where key nations stand on Iraq
BBC has some information about suppürting and opposing countries
Enter the Allies
CRITICS of President Bush's Iraq policy will have to give up their favorite line of attack--that he's acting unilaterally against Iraq. Nothing could be farther from the truth. In fact, even before the State Department named 30 countries as members of what President Bush calls "the coalition of the willing" this week, it was clear the United States would operate with dozens of allies, some large like Australia and Italy, some small such as Latvia and El Salvador.

The Bush administration has asked 53 countries to join the United States in a military campaign against Iraq, but so far the "coalition of the willing," in President Bush's phrase, consists of a handful of countries and even fewer commitments of troops, officials and diplomats said yesterday.
