The OP is presumably saying that the domain refered to in the
antiwar.com story is unreachable, not antiwar.com itself.
That's because it's been suspended by the registrar: tor-resolve returns
no IP for it and the .com root server reports that no such domain
exists. There may be cached entries floating around though.
