Unauthorized Disclosure: Blowing the Whistle on Government Crimes


Working for the United States Defense Department in the 1960s, Daniel Ellsberg photocopied classified documents about the war in Vietnam. The public disclosure of this information eventually helped bring down a president and end a war. On this edition, we hear from former federal employees who jeopardized their careers to expose official wrongdoing. We’ll also hear about Ellsberg’s latest whistleblowing activities.
