More on International ANSWER and its partner in crime, the World Worker's Party (WWP), in this excerpt from Ariel Cohen in National Review Online as reprinted in the Washington Times:

"Many in the media believe that the demonstrations held [Oct. 26] in Washington, San Francisco, London, and other cities around the world are bona fide expressions of mainstream public sentiment. They are not.

"Participants include activists from the extreme Old and New Left — from Stalinists to Maoists — as well as such 'blasts from the past' as the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP) and the Trotskyite Socialist Workers Party. Other worthies include pro-Saddam mouthpieces; Palestinian propagandists; North Korean front organizations; and 1960s 'flower children' who never grew up.

"A key player in organizing [the protests] is Ramsey Clark, former attorney general under Lyndon Johnson, who never met a dictator he didn't like.

"For over 12 years Clark has been affiliated with the Workers World Party (WWP). WWP splintered from the Trotskyite movement in the 1950s and became — of all things — Orthodox Stalinist. It supported China's repression of Tibet, North Vietnam's war against the South and the U.S., the Tiananmen Square massacre, and the coup against Gorbachev.

"Just knowing that the bulk of these protesters come from the radical Left, old and new — and not from the U.S. mainstream — and having some sense of who may be behind the antiwar protesters is important. In the new war against rogue states and radical Islamic terrorism, this important aspect of warfare can no longer be neglected.
