-------

Daniel Ellsberg (born April 7, 1931) is a former United States military analyst who, while employed by the RAND Corporation, precipitated a national political controversy in 1971 when he released the Pentagon Papers, a top-secret Pentagon study of U.S. government decision-making in relation to the Vietnam War, to The New York Times and other newspapers. He was awarded the Right Livelihood Award in 2006. He is also known for a fundamental contribution to decision theory, the Ellsberg paradox. (Source wikipedia.org)

Well spoken

His emphisis upon the phraze, traitors to the constitution, seems a little off. Seems they are traitors to the nation and the people governed by it for disobeying the rules, constitution that they were and are bound to by law and oath/promise.

Also while I commend and agree with his acusations pretaining to the Bush crime family. Yet it would have been nice to hear him identify the European Bank Mafia family as the Bush families controllers. The Bush family came from used tire salesman to bank mogul follow the money from the Rothschild family to the Bush family. Its a intermarige family from what I have read.

The real monster behind all is the NOT SO federal, with NO reserve, bank, Corporation that hides the true owners under several layers of corporate ownersthip but all trails lead to the name of Rothschild.

Both Hedges and Ellsberg believe that their lives are in danger

via NDAA provisions.

Hedges says he spoke with terrorists (al Qaida reps) in the course of his career as a reporter...what if his articles are retroactively deemed sympathetic to the terrorists? What it he was "aiding" them by letting them express their views?

Here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxuOz99VZI0 in this video from a week ago, Ellsberg basically argues that if Manning and Wikileaks are deemed terrorists, anyone who's defended them publicly is, or will be, in the crosshairs, unless the NDAA is overturned, and all legal attempts to assassinate or indefinitely detain Americans without trial cease.

Not surprised

These two are incredibly courageous to stand their ground like this.

Incredibly Courageous

Thank you! The world will be watching and is most indebted to you! The NDAA is a monster disgrace!
