The Most Dangerous Man In America: Daniel Ellsberg And The Pentagon Papers

Streaming Video - 2015
Rate this:
In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg, a high-level Pentagon official and Vietnam War strategist, concludes that the war is based on decades of lies and leaks 7,000 pages of top secret documents to The New York Times, making headlines around the world. The Most Dangerous Man in America is a riveting story of how one man's profound change of heart created a landmark struggle involving America's newspapers, president and Supreme Court-- a political thriller whose events led directly to Watergate, Nixon's resignation and the end of the Vietnam War. "A great teaching tool! The Pentagon Papers controversy remains the key test of press freedom vs. national security and this film brilliantly lays out the competing claims with a rare combination of objectivity and passion."
