The Bob Edwards Show, Daniel Ellsberg, Judith Ehrlich, and Rick Goldsmith, June 30, 2015 | [Bob Edwards]

The Bob Edwards Show, Daniel Ellsberg, Judith Ehrlich, and Rick Goldsmith, June 30, 2015

In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg, a high-level Pentagon official and Vietnam War strategist, leaked 7,000 pages of top secret documents about the war to the press. It was a Defense Department study never meant to be seen by the public. Its publication in the New York Times proved the war was based on lies and eventually led to President Richard Nixon's resignation and the end of America's involvement in Vietnam.

Publisher's Summary

In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg, a high-level Pentagon official and Vietnam War strategist, leaked 7,000 pages of top secret documents about the war to the press. It was a Defense Department study never meant to be seen by the public. Its publication in the New York Times proved the war was based on lies and eventually led to President Richard Nixon's resignation and the end of America's involvement in Vietnam. Bob talks with Ellsberg about his decision to release the "Pentagon Papers" and with filmmakers Judith Ehrlich and Rick Goldsmith about their documentary called The Most Dangerous Man in America. On this date in 1971, the US Supreme Court ruled in favor of allowing the New York Times and the Washington Post to continue publishing the documents and Ellsberg was indicted for theft and espionage.
