now written a piece about Snowden for, where else, The Guardian. For years, after I first met Dan thirty years ago, he had tremendous difficulty writing, also never did it. Now he responds quickly to events.
Earlier: My old friend Dan Ellsberg on CNN on new whistleblower, hails Sbowden and importance of what he's done. Says indeed Snowden has broken the law but he would have done the same if this spying and secrecy existed in his time. Thinks, however, at trial could be found that progtrams he exposed are unconstitutional. Ellsberg say that if he had been given the docs this year he would have leaked himself, even if he would spend the rest of his life in prison. Believe it.
