Video of the Day – 11/19/15 (The Pentagon Papers)

Daily Video — “The Pentagon Papers”

From the Newseum YouTube Channel: “On June 13, 1971, The New York Times began publishing stories based on the Pentagon Papers, a classified document about the controversial Vietnam War that had been leaked to the Times by Daniel Ellsberg, a military analyst.” A nice, concise history of these documents, what they contained, and some of the controversy surrounding their release.  Many compare Ellsberg’s 1971 leak to those of Edward Snowden in the past few years.
