Ellsberg Found He Could Leak and Get the US General in Vietnam Fired
It is amazing! I have met Ellsberg at protests at the polluting nuclear weapons plant here in Colorado. The Reveal radio show and transcript shows how Daniel Ellsberg went from a Harvard grad to an on-the-ground-marine; to a top level analyst for the Dept of Defense about the Vietnam war; to an insider who leaked about the lies that the US general Westmoreland and President Johnson were telling about the Vietnamese war. Later , he revealed lies My Lai, Abu Gharaib, etc. The Pentagon Papers: Secrets, lies, and Leaks.
