The Mysterious Secret of International ANSWER... Coulda been a great Gerry Anderson series....but in any case the Post continues to be left behind in the wake of more hard-hitting news organizations such as the rock n' roll magazine Hit List--not to criticize the Post too much, because I hear Hit List did increase its investigative unit budget by 150% and bought two tape recorders....

Here are the stories that mention International ANSWER:

Thousands Oppose a Rush to War
Antiwar Sentiment Galvanizes Thousands
Crowd Estimates: 30,000 to 500,000
In the Heat Of Protest, Some Cold Discomfort

Here are the stories that put things in context by explaining that it's a front for the Worker's World Party, which supports the brutal North Korean regime, the Tiananmen Square massacre, etc.:

(sound of wind blowing)

Instead, they're quoted about the weather, about the job they did organizing, about crowd estimates.

And here's a swing and a miss, in Antiwar Sentiment Galvanizes Thousands:

International A.N.S.W.E.R., the most radical of the networks mobilized against an attack on Iraq, has been able to reach more moderate groups by sticking to a singular message -- that the United States has not made the case for a unilateral war on Iraq -- and spreading it through the Internet.

Uh...anybody home? Why is International ANSWER the most radical of the networks mobilized against an attack on Iraq? Again, it's a mystery.

This is one of the greatest papers in the U.S.?
