The Hollywood actress will lend her voice to Paul Jay’s feature film based on the book ‘Doomsday Machine,’ by the Vietnam-era whistleblower who released the Pentagon Papers.
Paul Jay, at work on ‘How to Stop a Nuclear War,’ a documentary based on Ellsberg’s book, tells THR about Streisand throwing a party to crucially fund the whistleblower’s legal defense fund and keep his trial going in 1973.
Noam Chomsky discusses the heroic contributions Daniel Ellsberg made by releasing the Pentagon Papers and revealing the madness of American nuclear war plans. Ellsberg uncovered shocking information about the planning for nuclear war in the 1950s, during his time within the system and with high-level access. He revealed details about the planning documents and the existence of a “Doomsday Machine,” a system designed by both the United States and Russia that would ensure total destruction in the event of communication failure. He also discovered the delegation of authority to launch nuclear wars, with lower-level military officials interpreting instructions in a way that allowed them to initiate nuclear bombings.
Historian Peter Kuznick looks at the significance of Daniel Ellsberg’s fight against America’s insane nuclear war strategy, his exposure of the lies of the Viet Nam War, and his continuing fight against the American war machine.
