FILE - In this July 28, 1971 file photo, Daniel Ellsberg, former Defense Department researcher who leaked top-secret Pentagon papers to the press, speaks to an unofficial House panel investigating the significance of the war documents, as Rep. Don Edwards, D-Calif., right, looks on, in Washington. The WikiLeak documents have been compared to the Pentagon Papers, an internal government study of U.S. involvement in Vietnam that was commissioned in 1967 and were leaked, including a memo that stated the reason for fighting in Vietnam was based far more on preserving U.S. prestige than preventing communism or helping the Vietnamese.
