The Post (2017)
Bob Odenkirk: Ben Bagdikian
Ben Bagdikian : I always wanted to be part of a small rebellion.
Daniel Ellsberg : But it didn't take him long to figure out, well, for us to figure out if the public ever saw these papers they would turn against the war. Covert ops, guaranteed debt, rigged elections? It's all in there. Ike, Kennedy, Johnson... they violated the Geneva Convention. They lied to Congress and they lied to the public. They knew we couldn't win and still sent boys to die.
Ben Bagdikian : What about Nixon?
Daniel Ellsberg : He's just carrying on like all the others, too afraid to be the one who loses the war on his watch.
