Last Friday at the Mill Valley Public Library Daniel Ellsberg spoke about the need for government transparency, especially as it relates to the Wikileaks case.

Ellsberg is the former U.S. military analyst who during the Vietnam War leaked what became known as The Pentagon Papers, a secret study that revealed U.S. doubts about winning the war and the anticipation of many more casualties than publicly acknowledged.

Ellsberg once lived in Mill Valley and was interviewed by Mill Valley Patch on Jan 4.
