Daniel Ellsberg on the NSA Leaks
Members of Congress, including California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, say Edward Snowden is a traitor who should be prosecuted for revealing classified information about the National Security Agency's domestic surveillance programs. Calling him a modern-day Daniel Ellsberg, supporters around the world are taking to the streets in defense of Snowden. Ellsberg himself, whose famous leak of the Pentagon Papers led to public outrage over the Vietnam War, says Snowden's disclosures are the most important in United States history. Daniel Ellsberg joins guest host Dana King in studio for a conversation about domestic surveillance and the debate over espionage vs. whistle-blowing.
