In 1966, while the United States was engaged in the Vietnam War, military analyst Daniel Ellsberg from the United States State Department accompanied American forces into battle to provide Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara with updates on the military’s progress. McNamara breaks the news to Ellsberg and William B. Macomber that the war is a lost cause during the journey back home. However, when confronted by the assembled journalists, he asserts his support for the military operation.

Ellsberg is left feeling disheartened as a result of hearing this unexpected about-face. Years later, when Ellsberg was working as a civilian military contractor and consultant for the RAND Corporation, which was a military and defence “think tank,” he copied thousands of pages of classified reports that documented the country’s involvement in Vietnam dating back to the Truman administration. After that, he gives them to a reporter named Neil Sheehan who works for The New York Times.
