Daniel Ellsberg and Jeffrey Sterling 

When: Wed., Nov. 20, 7:30-9:30 p.m. 2019
Price: $12 advance, $15 door.
You may not be familiar with the name Jeffrey Sterling, but you should be. Sterling is a former CIA employee who was arrested, charged, and convicted of violating the Espionage Act for allegedly revealing classified information to New York Times reporter James Risen — who revealed that, instead of subverting Iran’s nuclear program as intended, the CIA had provided the country with useful information on how to build a bomb. Sterling served more than two years in prison for his alleged crimes. You probably are familiar with the name Daniel Ellsberg. He was charged under the same Espionage Act for releasing the top-secret study of Vietnam War decision-making to reporters at the Times and other newspapers. Though considerably more famous than Sterling, Ellsberg managed to avoid prison altogether. KPFA radio and RootsAction are hosting a conversation between the two whistleblowers and author Norman Solomon, to be moderated by Kevin Cartwright.
