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

Daniel Ellsberg was an ex-marine and top privacy wonk, who became convinced that the Vietnam Fight was wrong. He was also convinced that the government knew it was wrong, but continued to war mainly to save face. Considering this a moral abhorrence, he leaked top secret papers to the press. They didn't betray really damaging information, but they were an embarrassment to the government who tried to prosecute Ellsberg. To discredit the leaker, President Nixon ordered his aides to burgle his psychiatrist, starting a chain of happenings that led to Watergate. Eventually, after Nixon had resigned, the fight finally ended, although Ellsberg was disappointed that his publication of the truth has failed to turn public opinion decisively vs it at an earlier time. It's a fascinating story, and this documentary re-lives it. Most compelling is the sense that Ellsberg gives of a boy motivated by an extraordinarily powerful inner moral compass; while the likes of Nixon would do anything to keep onto what they had, Ellsberg risked a life in prison in the hope of ending the war. Today, our politicians seem to some to be making the same mistakes their forebears did; we have also learned something of how they lie to us, but still have not stopped them. Ellsberg is still trying. He emerges from this movie as a giant of a man.


This documentary is a must-see for anyone interested in American history. The most necessary reason to see it is that it illustrates the cozy nature of press-government relations in the 1960s, and how that relationship changed radically, albeit slowly, as a effect of Daniel Ellsberg's leak of the Pentagon Papers to the Fresh York Times.The Pentagon Papers were top secret documents that detailed the true reasons for America's entry into the Vietnam War. They clearly showed that presidents Kennedy and Johnson had lied to the American public and flouted international law in sending units to Southeast Asia. What was revolutionary was the mainstream press's eventual willingness to publish the classified documents. This had never been done before in America. The storyline as said in this movie is as riveting as any spy caper, and shows how individual acts of courage on the part of few folks were crucial to the success of Ellsberg's efforts to reveal the truth.There is also some black humor in the film, where President Nixon reveals his vengeful anger vs Ellsberg on excerpts from his popular tapes. It is no exaggeration to tell that Ellsberg almost single-handedly set in motion the happenings that would bring down the Nixon presidency and end America's involvement in Vietnam.


John Lennon is probably the most popular peace activist during the Vietnam War. But it took an inside boy who now had been over there who would not only shed light on the history of the United States's involvement with Vietnam but upon whose actions now led to the resignation of a sitting American president.Four years in the making, this got Ellsberg's participation as narrator and having the final word after publishing his greatest seller "Secrets" and subsequent ebook tour of "Secrets". Just like the book, it focuses on his career of being an outstanding Marine and researcher of nuclear energy that led to him being employed by Robert McNamara in 1961, then the Secretary of Defense under President John F. Kennedy.However, Ellsberg's storyline really begins getting interesting when he's assigned to uncover covert operations of the North Vietnamese vs American units stationed in South Vietnam in 1964. What had initiated this was the Gulf of Tonkin incident, which in itself soon proved to be an American ship misfiring upon other but at the time blamed on the Vietcong.Ellsberg told he should only search one, a minor one involving two servicemen that became an excuse for the most damaging one sided bombing of one nation towards other the globe has ever seen. In 1965, he went on a fact finding tour in which he dressed in war fatigues and came back disillusioned as to why the United States was doing there.He worked in Rand, a military think tank in Santa Monica and because of his position, traveled to Washington, D.C. where he began to create mates and meet his future wife at non violent peace rallies. He realized he had access to documents that would soon be named "The Pentagon Papers" that exposes the lies of presidents going back to Truman of the American involvement after France lost its colonies at Indochina.However, 1968's peace candidate would prove he was nothing of the sort and would be Ellsberg's chief antagonist for most of the documentary, the infamous Richard M. Nixon.I have seen negative comments about the cheesy animation, admittedly unnecessary because it's well known that Ellsberg's main role was to copy the documents and have been exposed to the Fresh York Times to Nixon's chagrin. Ellsberg comes across quite heroically in this and even he was surprised that he played no tiny part in giving Nixon enough rope to hang himself that led to his resignation.Very chilling is hearing Nixon considering dropping atomic bombs on Vietnam as if all to the another bombs including the infamous Christmas bombing of 1972 wasn't enough. Henry Kissinger, the Secretary of State, comes across much better, giving words of caution and even heard early on of having a "Peace with Honor" exit tactic with Nixon within the first month Nixon was in office.Present at the screening at Beverly Hills Melody Hall was Ellsberg's wife, Patricia Marx Ellsberg and movie maker Judith Ehrlich. Scheduled to appear but he passed away recently, Howard Zinn is among the talking heads of this necessary documentary. Paralels of what is event in Iraq and Afghanistan were not mentioned but still very hard to ignore.This was echoed repeatedly during the q and a. Ehrlich did test to repeatedly to receive Kissinger as this documentary does present him in a positive light but all attempts were futile. It is a quote from him that gives the game of this movie.She was more successful in getting John Dean, Nixon's counsel who got fired during the Watergate trials and bestselling creator of "Blind Ambition", that gave first hand accounts of Nixon's involvement of ordering the break in Ellberg's psychoanalyst's office.Patricia gave a more private side of her husband. He's actually seventy-nine and probably has been arrested seventy-nine times as he still attends peace rallies and not satisfied with the most actual surge in Afghanistan.If Ellsberg hadn't done what he done in 1971, it's really difficult to imagine what the seventies would have looked like in the political arena. There would have been no Watergate. The Vietnam Fight would have been prolonged and many more innocent folks would have died. However, Ellsberg sadly notes that it doesn't look like our government has really learned its lesson. 58,000 American and over 2,000,000 Vietnamese lives were lost during the Vietnam War. No matter how one looks at it, that remains a very disturbing fact in American history.
