FACING ESPIONAGE ACT CHARGES: DANIEL ELLSBERG AND JULIAN ASSANGE: Former Pentagon analyst and preeminent whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg draws disturbing parallels between the U.S. government’s illegal activities against him after he was charged with Espionage Act crimes almost fifty years ago for releasing a report exposing the government’s war crimes in Vietnam and illegal activities the government has engaged in against Julian Assange as he faces similar charges for releasing documents exposing war crimes committed in Afghanistan and Iraq. Ellsberg also talks about how much more is at stake this time.
