Amy Goodman Interviews Dan Ellsberg On NDAA Unconstitutionality

An absolute must-view (or -read) of one of the definitive figures in the history of First-Amendment law, interviewed by one of our remaining genuine journalists. Don't miss this!

Addendum: from Ellsberg's day (Nixon's presidency) to the present under Obama, presidents have more and more frequently attempted to squelch journalists, not merely by imprisonment but by death threats (see Bradley Manning). If we would restore something of the First Amendment freedoms our nation's founders listed, we must put an end to these presidential practices: the chief executive must not have sole power to imprison or execute Americans, particularly whistleblowers.
