To the editors:
I have to take exception with your description of Howard Zinn as a “liberal” (News, “Zinn Speaks Out Against Iraq Occupation, Summers,” Dec. 5). Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean is a liberal, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Sen. Edward M. Kennedy ’54-’56 are liberals. I don’t think any of them would want to be associated with anyone who put Bush in the same league as Saddam Hussein or Osama bin Laden. Zinn might be a leftist or a radical, but his views are fundamentally different from those of mainstream opponents of the war or the subsequent occupation. I supported the war and I consider myself a moderate, but I think you do liberals a disservice by lumping them together with Howard Zinn.
