‘The Most Dangerous Man in America’: Daniel Ellsberg And The Pentagon Papers

Created on Monday, 21 June 2010 15:12

The Most Dangerous Man in America tells the story of Daniel Ellsberg, a high-level Pentagon official and Vietnam War strategist, who in 1971 concluded that the war in Vietnam was based on decades of lies. He consequently leaked 7,000 pages of top secret documents to The New York Times, making headlines around the world.

This is a riveting story of how this one man's profound change of heart created a landmark struggle involving America's newspapers, it's President and Supreme Court. The documentary features Daniel Ellsberg, Patricia Ellsberg, Robert Ellsberg, Tony Russo, Howard Zinn, Hedrick Smith, John Dean and others, and, from the secret White House tapes, Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, who called Ellsberg "The Most Dangerous Man in America’.
