He's Right

Daniel Ellsberg is absolutely right:

Daniel Ellsberg, who leaked the Pentagon Papers 35 years ago, said Friday that whistleblowers shouldn't be afraid to reveal government secrets in an effort to save people's lives, even if it means going to jail.

"Don't do what I did," Ellsberg said. "Don't wait until the bombs are falling in Iran. Don't wait until people are dying. Go to the press and reveal."

Of course, the lives probably saved will be those of our enemies. Can you say traitor? Sure, I knew you could.

See any similarity between the Gulf of Tonkin and WMDs? Didn't think so...
