Daniel Ellsberg joined Marc to discuss the new film about his life: The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers. In 1970, Ellsberg was responsible for releasing the secret U.S.government report that documented illegal US involvement in Vietnam, documents that have become known as the Pentagon Papers. He discusses why he risked life in prison to publicize the papers, and why his story is still relevant today.
