SUBJECT: MEDIA REACTION POWELL EVIDENCE AGAINST IRAQ;
1. Secretary of State Colin Powell's February 5
presentation to the UN Security Council was barely
visible in the Zimbabwean media. An AFP report
published on page 4 of the government-owned "Herald"
and a wire service-based report read on the government-
owned Zimbabwean Broadcasting Corporation morning
television news program, are the sum total of local
mention of the Secretary's presentation. There is no
editorial or op-ed reaction to the presentation.
