Daniel Ellsberg, the history-making whistleblower who by leaking the Pentagon Papers revealed longtime government doubts and deceit about the Vietnam War and inspired acts of retaliation by President Richard Nixon that helped lead to his resignation, has died at the age of 92.
Ellsberg, who had been diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer in February, died at his home in Kensington, California.
Ellsberg secretly went to the media in 1971 in hopes of expediting the end of the Vietnam War. It made him the target of a smear campaign by the Nixon White House. Henry Kissinger, who was then the president's national security adviser, referred to him as ‘the most dangerous man in America who must be stopped at all costs.’
