Achcar of course has some info in his book, and googling turns up more by

What threw me (and it shouldn't have) was the explicit claims by the author
about the committees' supposed power and jurisdiction. So, as this will now
become the accepted wisdom among tankie fools, it's good you're addressing
it Louis.
