Daniel Ellsberg talked about his book, Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers, published by Viking Press.

Mr. Ellsberg was a Defense Department analyst in 1971 when he released, without permission, the Pentagon Papers to the New York Times for publication. The Pentagon Papers were based on a top-secret study documenting the pattern of United States interest in Vietnam over the previous three decades. Once they were published, the United States government won a restraining order against the New York Times preventing further publication.

The government indicted Mr. Ellsberg and a colleague on theft, conspiracy, and espionage charges, which were eventually dropped. After the presentation Mr. Ellsberg answered questions from members of the audience. close
