Welcome to a Conversation with History. I'm Harry Kreisler of the Institute of International Studies. Our guest is Daniel Ellsberg. An activist and strategic analyst, he was a key figure in the public protest to halt the Vietnam War. His leaking of the Pentagon Papers to The New York Times set in motion a series of events, including illegal actions by then-President Richard Nixon that led the president to resign his office rather than be impeached.
