Best of 2010: Daniel Ellsberg on U.S. foreign policy under Obama and the continuing risk of nuclear war January 25, 2013 | 4:00 am

This week, a repeat of Dr. Caldicott’s September 2010 interview with Daniel Ellsberg. In 1959, Ellsberg became a strategic analyst at the RAND Corporation. He was also a consultant to the Defense Department and the White House, specializing in problems of the command and control of nuclear weapons, nuclear war plans, and crisis decision-making. On return to the RAND Corporation in 1967, Ellsberg worked on the top secret McNamara study of U.S. Decision-making in Vietnam, 1945-68, which later came to be known as the Pentagon Papers. In 1971, he gave the Papers to the New York Times, the Washington Post and 17 other newspapers. His trial, on twelve felony counts posing a possible sentence of 115 years, was dismissed in 1973 on grounds of governmental misconduct against him, which led to the convictions of several White House aides and figured in the impeachment proceedings against President Nixon.
