About The Book
„The WikiLeaks of its day“ (Time) is as relevant as ever to present-day American politics.
Not fake news! The basis for the 2018 film ‚The Post‘, ‚THE PENTAGON PAPERS‘ are a series of articles, documents, and studies examining the Johnson Administration’s lies to the public about the extent of US involvement in the Vietnam War, bringing to light shocking conclusions about America’s true role in the conflict.
Published by ‚The New York Times‘ in 1971, ‚THE PENTAGON PAPERS‘ riveted an already deeply divided nation with startling and disturbing revelation about the United States involvement in Vietnam. ‚The Washington Post‘ called them „the most significant material in American history“ and they remain relevant today as a reminder of the importance of a free press and First Amendment rights. ‚THE PENTAGON PAPERS‘ demonstrated that the government had systemically lied to both the public and to Congress.
