Not the A.N.S.W.E.R.?

I’d heard rumblings about the strange roots of International A.N.S.W.E.R., a major anti-war organizing body. First off, their name is too unwieldy, but I don’t think that is the complaint other people are bringing. Answer is tied to the Workers World Party, which in tern has some pretty…strong beliefs (which I have not read) about other world events. This of course was seized upon by right-wing media pundits to discredit the entire anti-war effort, which, obviously, is incredibly stupid, just like a lot of what goes on in the media. But one really must wonder where Answer came from and why they are in charge of this somewhat important movement. I found an interesting San Francisco Chronicle article that does a bit of digging into this issue. Its enlightening, but I wish it would have included more about how Answer came about.
