WASHINGTON Even as prosecutors build a case against the Army private suspected of passing hundreds of thousands of diplomatic cables to WikiLeaks, the State Department is promoting a documentary film that celebrates Pentagon Papers leaker Daniel Ellsberg.
Amid its struggle to contain damage from the WikiLeaks revelations, the State Department announced Saturday that "The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers" has been selected as one of 18 films that will tour the world this year as part of its "American Documentary Showcase" program.
Among the other documentaries chosen for this year's showcase are "If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front," which deals with the radical environmental group that some regard as a terrorist organization; "Freedom Riders," which traces the experiences of civil-rights advocates in 1961; and "No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson," which examines the youthful legal troubles of the basketball star.

Another hate America fest courtesy of Obama and Hillary.
Shortly after the wikileaks dumb, Robert Gibbs said that the White House wasn’t afraid of some guy with a keyboard, who had plopped down a few bucks for a domain name.
But, they’ll clear the decks in an effort to completely destroy some guy with a microphone, whether his name happens to be Rush, Sean, John, Michael, Laura, or whatever. And civil rights be damned, they have to go now.
It was clear that the White House - Obama - not only wasn’t worried about Assange and the leaks, but that, by this statement, they were in complete agreement with the dump, and approved of Assange’s actions.
This is what you’d expect coming out of Cuba, Venezuela or China about America. Not our own Foreign Service.
Our State Department could use a defunding of its personell by about 99%, and of it’s buildings around the world, by 99%. It has become an entity of enemies of the state.
Get it from netflix along with The Lover.
Definite game changer.
