Alexander Cockburn = 'Revolutionary Marxist'
Honestly, I expected the feds to have gathered more intelligence on Cockburn over the decades and found what's been released quite skimpy.
Cockburn has been a leading figure of the "New Left", a group of revolutionary Marxist academics centered round the "New Left Review", since 1966.
Although closely associated with members of Trotskyist and Communist groups, he is not known to have been either a Trotiskyist or a Communist himself, and is probably best described as a Revolutionary Marxist.

The surveillance state back in the 1970s, when the Cockburn file was created, has only expanded since then and continues to grow under Barack Obama.
