Daniel Ellsberg Urges U.S. Officials to Leak Top-Secret N. Korea Docs Now to Avert War

In a Sunday appearance on New York AM 970 radio’s “The Cats Roundtable, Daniel Ellsberg, leaker of the Pentagon Papers, called on United States officials to leak any top-secret documents that would prevent a war with North Korea.

“I would encourage people who now know that we are being encouraged to go to war with North Korea on false pretenses, basically, on what the prospects really will be, and what the consequences will be. I’d tell them don’t do what I did. Don’t wait years until the bombs have fallen. Don’t wait till thousands have died,” Ellsberg told host John Catsimatidis.

He continued, “Consider doing what I should have done much earlier than I did, which is going to the Congress and the press directly.”
