Keynote presentation from Dr. Ellsberg, a former Defense Department aide, the co-author and the primary whistleblower in disclosure of the Pentagon Papers, a classified history of the policy decisions that led to U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War. These papers were reported publicly on July 1, 1971, first by the New York Times. The federal government indicted Ellsberg on June 28 for theft of government property and violation of the espionage act but the indictments were later dismissed because of government lawbreaking in trying to collect information on the defendant.
Dr. Daniel Ellsberg
