The Post (2017) Poster


Bob Odenkirk: Ben Bagdikian



  • Ben Bagdikian : I always wanted to be part of a small rebellion.

  • Daniel Ellsberg : Wouldn't you go to prison to stop this war?

    Ben Bagdikian : Theoretically, sure.

  • Ben Bagdikian : Outside of landing the Hindenburg in a lightning storm, that's about the shittiest idea I've ever heard.

    Fritz Beebe : Oh boy!

  • 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.
