Historical Leaks and Contemporary Cover Ups

Two interesting stories:

An NPR story on Daniel Ellsberg, “the military analyst who in 1971 leaked the top-secret Pentagon Papers detailing the history of U.S. policy in Vietnam.”

And for Reuters, John Shiffman and Kristina Cooke write, “U.S. Directs Agents to Cover Up Program Used to Investigate Americans”: “A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.”
