WASHINGTON—Comments by Secretary of State Colin Powell encouraging the use of condoms to fight the spread of AIDS have drawn fire from some conservative supporters of the Bush administration who suggested the remarks were at odds with White House policy.

During a teleconference on the music television network MTV on Thursday, Powell told a global audience he believed condoms were part of the solution to the HIV/AIDS crisis and encouraged their use by young people who were sexually active.

Powell’s opinions are in direct contradiction to the White House’s policy which frowns upon condom use, abortions, drug abuse, underage drinking, trying to pass false IDs as one’s own in order to purchase alcohol and prescribing prescription drugs to yourself by pretending to be a doctor.
