    It is most certainly not A.. Robespierre was the head of the Committee of Public Safety. He was a Jacobin radical who called for the execution of thousands of political dissidents and he used the Committee to fulfill his goals.

    Partyrainbow, can you show me specifically any sources that state The Committee of Public Safety was led by more moderate members of the government?

    I did check... it just told me what I already knew. I'd be willing to change my opinion regarding the validity of your answer if you gave me any information to contradict it. Historically, B. is the correct answer.
