Moving Picture Time

Today we have a documentary entitled The Most Dangerous Man in America. It’s a fascinating look at Daniel Ellsburg, the man who released vast quantities of secret documents about the Vietnam war (while it was still happening) to the public, and made a lot of presidents look really bad.

 

 

I had never really heard anything from the Nixon tapes before, but my god, was he ever a despicable human being. He and Kissinger really made a great team: one an evil idiot and one an evil genius.

On a lighter note, it was pretty cool to see that Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky and Daniel Ellsburg used to hang out back in the day.
