The International ANSWER Whitewash Continues, both in the Post as InstaPundit points out in reference to an afternoon dispatch, and in this Associated Press story.
"We stand here today, a new generation of anti-war activists," Peta Lindsay from International Answer, the main organizers, exhorted the spirited masses in a biting cold. "This is just beginning. We will stop this war."
That's the depth of AP's reporting.
UPDATE: OmbudsGod has this gem:
UPDATE: Here's what then-FBI Director Louis Freeh had to say about the Workers World Party in his statement for the record, Threat of Terrorism to the United States, before the U.S. Senate Committees on Appropriations, Armed Services, and Select Committee on Intelligence four months before the terrorist acts of September 11, 1991.
"Anarchists and extremist socialist groups -- many of which, such as the Workers' World Party, Reclaim the Streets, and Carnival Against Capitalism -- have an international presence and, at times, also represent a potential threat in the United States."
Wouldn't you know it, the smarmy organizers of the anti-war movement were singled-out by the FBI Director in his testimony on terrorism as a "potential threat" shortly before the U.S. was attacked.
Update Again: Here's a lengthy review of International ANSWER, the IAC and Ramsey Clark, which I post here mainly so I don't lose it for now. Fascinating, depressing stuff. Evidently an "underground rock 'n roll magazine" called Hit List scooped the Washington Post on this stuff, which may not be hard since the Post doesn't care to look.
