Instapundit and I gather some others are criticizing this Post story claiming that the antiwar "movement" is growing. Reporter Evelyn Nieves writes of an "extraordinary array of groups questioning the Bush administration's rationale for an invasion of Iraq," but with the possible exception of some union and alleged corporate types, these strike me as the usual suspects, such as The National Council of Churches. The story does have anecdotal evidence of a growing opposition, but it's not exactly systematic.

Apart from the possible Rainesianism of the story, its most notable feature may be this: it appears to be the first time that the Workers World Party has been mentioned in the Post. You may recall that the WWP is a communist/socialist melange whose hero states include North Korea and whose marionettes include International ANSWER, an organizer of the recent antiwar protest in Washington. Here's what today's Post story says:

The extraordinary array of groups questioning the Bush administration's rationale for an invasion of Iraq includes longtime radical groups such as the Workers World Party, but also groups not known for taking stands against the government....

David Corn of the Nation uncovered the link in this LA Weekly piece. I am not certain but I believe the Post has yet to make the connection. A search for "Workers World Party" turned up only today's story.
