Overview
This documentary's title comes from the description that National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger gave to a Pentagon employee named Daniel Ellsberg. It chronicles how Ellsberg, who had access to a wide array of classified documents, managed to smuggle a secret study done by Pentagon officials and share it with the New York Times for widespread publication. Ellsberg considered himself a patriot who believed that the American public needed to know how President Nixon and four predecessors continually lied to the country about the War in Vietnam and its consequences. Ellsberg's actions, which exposed the many secrets of numerous men in political power, ultimately led to Watergate and Nixon's resignation.
