Daniel Ellsberg is famous for leaking “the Pentagon Papers.”
The Pentagon Papers revealed the government had from the beginning been very aware the Vietnam War was likely unwinnable, the government knew casualties would be far higher than it claimed, the Johnson Administration had consistently lied to Congress about Vietnam.
Daniel Ellsberg was recently featured on DemocracyNow! with Amy Goodman and Juan González – How the Pentagon Papers Came to be Published – where he said:
Daniel Ellsberg: The Pentagon Papers, the equivalent of them, exist in safes in Washington, all over Washington, not only in the Pentagon, but in the CIA and the State Department and elsewhere.
Already in the works.
