Daniel Ellsburg- Whistleblower
The Truth Exposed
elections, lies and murder" which were officially known as the Pentagon Papers, secret documents that explain the deception used by L.B.J to persuade the American public to put support behind the involvement of U.S troops. To go into more detail it explained the USS Maddox incident, which was when the U.S warship was allegedly attacked by North Viet Cong forces, was only a hoax where the Maddox fired rounds into the night claiming to be attacked. So in 1969, Ellsburg began to print out illegal copies of the government public censored Pentagon Papers and slipping small amounts from the text into the New York Times, which they then published into their paper. Soon after, the government blocked the Times from publishing the top secret information and when that was done, Ellsburg began feeding the information to different newspapers across the eastern seaboard, exploiting a very deceitful administration. L.B.J's and Nixon's Administrations,now on the brink of public humiliation, take the New York Times to court int the case known as New York Times Company v. The United States which ends in the victory of the Times to run the publication of the Papers without government censorship or interruption.
