    Daniel Ellsberg, perhaps the country’s most famous whistleblower, fears that before the Bush administration leaves office they will try to attack Iran.

    Indeed, Ellsberg’s argument gained merit as George W. Bush increased his rhetoric against Iran when he delivered his final State of the Union Address. Bush accused Iran of training militia extremists in Iraq, and emphasized the US will confront its enemies.

    In a wide-ranging interview with Truthout, Ellsberg uses insight from his experience as a Pentagon analyst under the Lyndon B. Johnson, and later, the Nixon administration, to discuss Bush’s plans to begin a war with Iran, the role of the press to give whistleblowers exposure, and how American democracy can be restored.
