The Most Dangerous Man in America is the true story of what happens when a former Pentagon insider, Daniel Ellsberg, armed only with his conscience, steadfast determination and a file cabinet full of classified documents, decides to challenge an "Imperial" Presidency -- answerable to neither Congress, the press nor the people -- in order to help end the Vietnam War.

American Constitution Society, American Civil Liberties Union of
Northern California and the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
