Associated Press in Warsaw sounds more like TASS

The Associated Press bureau in Warsaw sounds more like the old Soviet "news" agency TASS in its reporting of Polish Defense Minister Radek Sikorski's declassification of 1,700 volumes of secret Soviet-era military archives.

AP writer Ryan Lucas seems mad at Sikorski and the new post-nomenklatura government, carrying four references in the first five paragraphs of his November 29 story that revelation of Soviet plans to nuke Europe would damage relations with the Russian Federation.

That says more about the Russian government than that of Poland. It also says something about the AP Warsaw bureau.
