The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers

Anyone who doesn’t know who Daniel Ellsberg is must see this film. Anyone who values Daniel Ellsberg must see this film. This gripping documentary brings to light the full dimensions of his awakening of conscience. After building a case for war in Viet Nam, and masterminding subsequent combat operations, the Pentagon insider suffered a profound change of heart. Ellsberg leaked the classified documents to the press and became the most famous whistle blower in America. This bold act of conscience helped bring about Richard Nixon’s disgraceful downfall and the end of the Viet Nam war.
