It was the height of the Cold War, and the government would do anything to stop the spread of communism—with or without the consent of the American people.As the fighting in Vietnam escalated, Ellsberg turned against the war. He had access a top-secret government report known as the Pentagon Papers, and he knew it could blow the lid off of years of government lies.
