Elllsberg and Gravel describe behind-the-headlines drama of Pentagon Papers



On Democracy Now!, whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg and former U.S. Senator (Alaska) Mike Gravel described the difficult and potentially perilous process of getting the Pentagon Papers into print.

Ellsberg describes the Pentagon papers as “7,000 pages of top-secret documents that demonstrated unconstitutional behavior by a succession of presidents, the violation of their oath and the violation of the oath of every one of their subordinates.”

A complete transcript of the interviews is available on the Democracy Now! website.
