Of Course Daniel Ellsberg Should Have Been Shot

Treason, espionage, subversion… yep, they should have thrown the book at the Pentagon Papers guy and his editors. I know my dad always said so. It wasn’t some crusading-reporter thing; it was straight-up breaking the law.

Is there anybody who didn’t know this? Is there anybody who isn’t aware that the man still lives on the outside, only because the Supreme Court authorized liberal newspapers to do whatever the heck they felt like? Even plenty of people who ran newspapers thought it was insane.

Well, apparently Daniel Ellsberg doesn’t know that, though at least he’s clear that he has the same moral and legal standing as Julian Assange. (Well, except for the treason part. Assange wasn’t a US citizen.) He spoke out today against the “Pentagon Papers good, Wikileaks bad” fallacy.
