mention  the source of this statement: it's a Workers World editorial.
Needless to add that WW doesn't explain why they left ANSWER, as they
call on readers to demand that UFPJ accept ANSWER as an ally."

Huh??? Maybe time for new glasses, Ethan. From the original post: 

*  *  *

  The pages of this newspaper have advocated and encouraged anti-war
unity with ANSWER and all other progressive and anti-imperialist
forces, and will continue to do so where appropriate in the interests
of the struggle. Organ izational questions must be subordinated to the
task of ending the occupation.
  In that regard, we encourage the movement to call to task the
leadership of UFPJ and force them to reverse this divisive policy. The
solemn duty to get U.S. imperialism off the back of the Iraqi people,
to bring the troops home, and to defeat U.S. schemes to impose an
“Iraqization” of the occupation requires the strongest unity,
independent of the parties of the war makers.

Seems pretty transparent to me.
