SUBJECT: MEDIA REACTION ON THE VISIT OF SECRETARY OF DEFENSE
DONALD H. RUMSFELD TO HONDURAS, AUGUST 20, 2003

1. Editorial in San Pedro Sula-based liberal daily "La Prensa" on
8/25 entitled "The agenda". "The fact that the issue of
narcotrafficking came up during the recent visit of the U.S.
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is undeniable. What we

SIPDIS
don't know is the scope of these discussions and the proposals
presented by Rumsfeld to the Maduro administration."

"Despite the fact that President Maduro denied a future
installation of an anti-drug base in our territory, there are
still some doubts in the air, because Secretary Rumsfeld came to
Honduras after he visited Colombia. It's evident that the U.S.
government makes a lot of demands, but doesn't always help to
achieve what it wants."
