Daniel Ellsberg is best known as the defense department analyst who leaked the Pentagon Papers to the New York Times, thus exposing the depth and duration of our government’s duplicity and culpability in all matters related to the Vietnam War. In facing massive criminal charges (espionage, treason, theft) for having released the highly classified study, he also enacted the now unimaginable scenario of a Republican performing an unselfish act for the good of the country. His new book, The Doomsday Machine, is full of similarly damning—and way more terrifying—information about America’s secret playbook for nuclear war.
