WASHINGTON—As President Bush prepares to address the nation tonight on the stakes in the Iraq War, Accuracy in Media (AIM) charged today that key organizers of the “anti-war” movement are experienced far-left operatives who sympathize with sworn enemies of the U.S. and oppose any military action to defend the American people against terrorism.
“Basically, two groups, International ANSWER and United for Peace and Justice, are organizing the protests,” said AIM editor Cliff Kincaid. “And both are associated with radical Islamic groups and communist regimes, including North Korea and Cuba.”
“People are free to oppose the Iraq war,” said Kincaid, “but the media should give the public the facts about how Marxist agitators are manipulating the protests in order to produce an American defeat in Iraq and embolden America’s enemies. It’s time for Watergate-style investigative reporting into the not-so-hidden agenda of the ‘anti-war’ movement. Some people may want to avoid serving as ‘useful idiots’ for an anti-American cause.”
While a national anti-Iraq war protest is being planned for September 24 in Washington, D.C., Kincaid noted that some demonstrators will be in Fayetteville, North Carolina, tonight when President Bush delivers his speech at Ft. Bragg. “This local protest is being sponsored by the Quakers, a pacifist religious group that opposed U.S. involvement in the war against Nazism and Fascism in World War II,” he said.
