Reflections on the Vietnam War: Presidential Decisions and Public Dissent, with Daniel Ellsberg (Conversations with History)

2/17/2003; 58 minutes

Host Harry Kreisler is joined by activist and strategic analyst Daniel Ellsberg, a key figure in the public protest to halt the Vietnam War. His leaking of the Pentagon Papers to The New York Times set in motion a series of events, including illegal actions by then-President Richard Nixon that led the president to resign his office rather than be impeached.
