I would go further than Louis. I don't know all of these people but some of
them are a lot closer to Ramsey Clark than they are to Paul Craig Roberts.
Ann Wright also comes to mind, although she doesn't work with CNI.

I also don't see it as a tactical difference. These people are very
courageous, they should be praised in their own right whether or not they
qualify as "leftists," a qualification that appears to serve no apparent
purpose.
